So amazed at the gift of the sweet blog award given to my by Tammy White. Tammy is a designer for  ScrapbookPal.com and a guest designer for ClubRubyDesigners.com. She is also the first person to give me a chance in the GIBBS swap on the Cricut Message Boards :) Thanks Tammy for giving me such a lovely award.

Now that I have this, I need to do 4 things:

1). Thank and link back to the person who awarded me
2). Share 8 things about myself
3). Pay it forward to 8 bloggers that I have recently discovered
4). Contact those bloggers and tell them about their awards

So now it's time to share eight things about myself... here we go...

1. I have two beautiful daughters who love to craft with me...I am blessed.
2. If I won the lottery I would 'buy' a week of Tim Holtz' time so he could show me 1/100th of what he knows.
3. I want more than I need, have more than I deserve, and give all that I can.
4. I started my 'crafting career' by hand painting Christmas cards and sacks with acrylics
5. I live in the middle of a cornfield - literally!
6. I love to color!
7. I am the Executive Director of the Illinois Certification Board - overseeing 9000 credentials in the State of Illinois; dealing with addictions of all sorts. I love my job!!!
8. I have never used the Gypsy or Design Studio.... I know, gasp!

Now- to share this award with others...
Delphine  her beautiful cards brighten my day!
Daphne  her layouts are out of this world
Above Rubies Studio  What can I say...Megan is amazing!!
Paula C. one of my partners in GIBBS and an amazing crafter
Kimi  just beautiful work!
Cammi the Copic Queen :)

Happy New Year ... Ready Set Craft
