Stylish Blogger Award!!

What a way to start the new year off right! My friend Amanda Nicole from Amanda's Blog A Writer's Journey To Being published has passed on the "Stylish Blogger Award" to my blog! How exciting!
I have to say a few words about Amanda. She has been a great inspiration to me and a wonderful friend. Although we have never met in person, I think she's great! Always inspiring, and always encouraging me to keep blogging. When I have felt that no one was reading me, there was always a comment from her. So what are you waiting for? Check out her blog, or better yet become a follower and read some of her writings! I tip my hat to Amanda Nicole and say a heartfelt THANK YOU!

One of the things I must do to accept this award is share 7 things about me. So here goes....

1. I am an only child.

2. I come from a family of artists that go back to the 1800's. My mom has artwork from the 1800's from our family members. My mom too, is also an artist and I grew up watching my mom paint.

3. I have no formal training in art. I am a self taught artist. LOL I am one of those people who just one day decide things like, I think I will become a jewelry designer.

4. I LOVE to make soap and bath and body products! I am going to open another store soon for that!

5. I HATE vegetables, nothing green for me! Lettuce tastes like grass to me and leaves behind "lettuce residue" People have given me food that has had lettuce on it and I can always tell!

6.  I am also a huge fan of theatre and have been in many plays and love to sing. I have even taken voice lessons. 

7. The first trip I took on a plane was to visit my pen pal in Papua, New Guinea. I flew half way around the world by myself!  That was over 20 years ago and I am still in touch with my pen pal and the friends I made there.

Wow! Now you know more than most people do about me! I am going to pass this award along to a few of my friends. So please visit them!
