Kreativ Blogger Award

Siobhan at Dream of Scrappin' has given my blog an award. Thank you, girlfriend!

Here are the RULES for this AWARD:
1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.

7 interesting things:

I. I love "pillow talk" with my girls. It's almost become a tradition. In the evenings, as we wind down for bed, we usually hang out my bed and talk about the day and discuss Bible verses that pertain to the situations. Somehow, we always end up laughing and giggling. Kaylani and I are starting a journal, where we write back and forth to each other. It's like a written version of "pillow talk."

II. So love video games and action movies, but I rarely get the chance to play or watch. Hubby and my brother-in-law have been playing Prince of Persia. Mark and Jay hate the fighting scenes, but that's my favorite part. Last week, while I was laid up, wrapped in a sheet for a few days from a bad sunburn, I had the chance to play Prince of Persia all the way through. Every few hours, I would have to move around and get my legs working to keep the pain from intensifying, I would sneak into my studio and work on small projects, the end result: a ton of tear bears and animals for scrapbook layouts. Hence, all the kid themed layouts you've seen on the blog this week.

III. My oldest niece, Jasmyn, calls me, "Aunt Lynn Mom". When I am visiting she calls her mom, "JoJo" instead of "mom" because that's what we call her.

IV. When we were kids, at bedtime, to help my sister fall asleep, I would hum tunes to popular tv shows and she would have to name that tune. After I would run out of show tunes, I would end up singing a song by the group, Alabama, usually 40 Hour Week. I think she has all their songs memorized by now.

V. My kids literally remind me that I have a full plate. I don't know how many times they have found my supper still in the microwave at 10:00 at night. This usually happens when we have a house full of kids, we never know if we are feeding a family of 4 or an army of 7, during the summer it seems it's never just a family of 4. When we have an army to feed, I stay pretty busy keeping up on the house and fixing dinner and snacks for them. On days like that, I usually wait and enjoy my meal at the very end of a crazy day in peace and quiet.

VI. All the above references to food is totally Ethan's fault. He went to fetch food for Kaylani and Courtney and sweetly surprised the whole family with Taco Bell at 10:30 at night. I am in the middle of eating a steak chalupa. Yes, another reference to me eating late suppers.

VII. And since this is a scrapbooking blog, I suppose I should add an interesting tidbit concerning scrapbooking. The majority of my national and international scrapbook clients, have the same professional title but work in vastly different fields.
