All about me LO and some "Awards"!

Well I must say yes I am struggling to keep up with my blog. It seems all I can muster is an update one day a week but I am now making this a goal for myself to do it a bit more. I so appreciate all those of you who visit me regularly so I decided to post an all about me LO that I did for Treasurestoscrap. Had fun with this one, got to break into my glimmer mist, grungeboard and stickles and messy hands are always fun. In case the journaling is tough to read here it is:

At first glance you see an ordinary stay at home mom , but if you look a bit deeper there is so much more.

I am a 2-time marathoner, determined enough to train for months to fulfill my goal.

I was brave enough to step into a male sport and become a PIAA wrestling official.

I am free enough to jump onto a plane and head to CHA as part a design team.

I am loved enough to live my life for my family and myself and be content doing it.

I am lucky enough to have all I need and be all I want.

Photo taken spring 2007
Journaling written Jan 2008



I was also nominated for the "You Make My Day" Award and I want to thank both Dawn and Chris for thinking of me. You are two very talented ladies and I love to check out your blogs.


There are just too many people who "make my day" so consider yourself nominated and pass it on. I will be doing a pay it forward RAK soon so check back for details!
