As part of this getting this award, I need to:
--Link to and give a shout out to the award-giver. (Check!)
--Share seven things about myself. (All right, I'll do that in a minute.)
--Send this award on to fifteen other bloggers. (I've decided to do this in a mini-series, and write up a feature for each blog. Because who doesn't like being featured, right? So I'll feature one blog each Friday for fifteen weeks.)
Okay, seven things about me:
1--My mom taught me how to sew when I was a kid, and the sewing machine scared me! (It was so loud!) But now I love sewing; quilting, making clothes, crafting--I love it all!
2--One of my favorite classes in college was Book Arts (aka book making). I really need to write some tutorials on making books. (Maybe they'd be good Christmas presents...)
3--I graduated college with my major in Studio Art. Yep, craftiness was part of my major. Also drawing and painting, but I haven't had too much time for those since Boo was born--it's hard to paint in only nap-sized lengths of time. (But my wonderful sister babysat Boo long enough for me to paint this. Thanks, Sis!)
4--I'm not really a fan of cooking, but I love making desserts. (I don't mind cooking itself; it's the mostly washing up all the pots and pans. And all the time it takes.) Mmmm, chocolate chip cookies...
5--I love to read. Novels used to be my favorite, but now I really like how-to books. I love learning how to make new things! (I bet you're all super-surprised.)
6--If I could go anywhere in the world, I would choose Hawaii first. (But there are lot's of places I'd like to go! Scotland, England, Brazil, anywhere on a cruise...)
7--All right, one more thing...hmmm...I've never sewn with knits. I really need to learn how, especially since I want to start making more clothes for Boo.
The first blog I am passing this award on to is Peace, Love, Recipes by Courtney.
Okay, so I told you I'm not really into cooking, but I love finding new recipes. (I know, weird.)
Doesn't this Creamy Cran-Raspberry Sherbet look delicious?
Or how about these Nutella Fudge Brownies?
There are plenty of non-dessert thing, too, but like I said, desserts are my favorite. :)
So head on over to Peace, Love, Recipes.
