an award...and 5 chances to win!!

Hello, friends:}


I might be sharing a card/LO later...but I wanted to pop on and share with you an award that I received last week! I got a FUN email from Tracy telling me there was a surprise on her blog for me last week. I was super nervous--surprises always scare me {I guess I always think the worst}....but when I finally got my RSS feeder to work, I found out that Tracy had sent me this WONDERFUL award! How fun is that??? Good surprise:}


Here are the rules for the award::


1. Thank the person who gave you this award::: THANK YOU so much, Tracy! Your friendship and support mean so much to me! I love sharing with you--and I love visiting your site as well! HOOOORAY for fabulous friends:} THANKSTracy!


2. Copy the award and put it on your blog::: done.


3. List three things which you love about yourself::: UM.....if you know me {and you can ask my husband}, I never can think of things that I love about myself. It's not that I am trying to mean to myself or get a pity party....or that I'm just negative...I just never have liked much of anything. Well--that all changed about a year ago. I can now rattle off without even thinking about it--1] I like that I have a huge heart that cares about EVERYONE. 2] I like that I am using my gifts to glorify GOD. 3] I like that one of my strengths {which I took a test to find my 5 strengths} is INCLUDER, which means I like to make everyone happy (in some form or another). So those are my three things that I love about myself. 


4. Post a picture that you love::: hm....well....I really like this picture of Trav. He is the BEST husband in the whole wide world! I love this picture because it is super silly! He was messing around with his new guitar and his blog profile pic. SILLY!
5. Tag 5 people you would like to give this award to::: From my #3 thing that I love about myself (and one of my top 5 strengths)...I would LOVE to give it to ALL of you!! But I can only pick 5... so here they are:::
1] Char Austin--she is amazing. She never gets tired of listening to me complain about something silly. She also never gets upset when I ask too many questions! She has been a major influence on my crafting career!
2] The PDCC DTs--can I give it to a whole group?? I AM!! Lisa SomervilleSarah AndersonStephanie KraftRuby 2 Shoes, Suzanne Czosek, and Julie Ranae are AMAZING friends! I am so blessed to be on the same team as these talented ladies!!! LOOOOVE the PDCC:}
3] The EtsyInspired DTs--another group!! I just love this group too! All these gals {AshleyDeEmily B.Emily N.Heather RolinJoyKerryStephanie, and Virginia} are a great group of friends! They are the best when it comes to supporting me! I can't believe I'm on this talented team!!
4] The All Things Unity DTs--last group:) I looooooove this new team that I am on! Sara HentonAndrea MurdockKyra Sandstone, and Lynn Miller are so sweet! I'm so lucky to be on this team--esp. since I always need an excuse to work with my Unity stamps:} LOVE IT! Love this team!!


I skipped #5--since I broke the rules and gave out group awards! See? I found a way to include several peopole:} I do wish I could give ALL of you an award!! Speaking of giving away...I know! I will give you a special chance to win *******! I can't tell you what it is yet...but it is a full sheet of Unity Stamps!! That is all I can say!!
