Paying It Forward with the Stylish Blogger Award!!!

Now that the weekend is here and I'm feeling better (had a cold- blah), I could finally do my Stylish Blogger Award homework!

Here are the rules by the way:
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this
2. Share 8 things about yourself
3. Pay it forward to 8 bloggers that you have recently discovered
4. Contact those bloggers and tell them about their awards
 
So, first and foremost, thank you so much again, Stephanie at Steph Creates for awarding me my first blogger award! What fun!

Here are 8 things about me:

1.  I am a JUNKIE!! A scrapbooking and card-making SUPPLY junkie that is!!! I have far more supplies than I ever would truly need. Instead of making things, I am more likely buying things to make things!! It's bad. Managing this blog was supposed to alleviate that problem a bit by forcing me to make things and post. It's helped a little with the making of things, but I think the buying of things is getting worse. Oops!!!

2.  Like Stephanie, I too love the store, Archiver's (hence #1 above). I have an Archiver's close enough to my work to visit on my lunch hour. Sometimes I just wander around aimlessly like a kid in a candy store. It is definitely one of my happy places.

3.  I love the Dave Matthews Band. I go to at least one concert every summer! My most recent show was at Wrigley Field in Chicago. It was amazing! Not sure what I'll do next year when they take the year off (sniff, sniff).

4. Much like my supply junkie problem, I take WAY TOO MANY pictures. Being a scrapbooker, I think in terms of "telling the whole story," so I take pictures of every event from start to finish. This is good, but it also takes up a lot of my time editing all of those photos. Never could I let a photo go without being edited - what a sin!!

5. I loathe cooking on an every day basis. Making a special meal or baking is fun from time to time, but HAVING to cook is horrible in my opinion. I would love a personal chef!!! I'll keep dreaming . . .

6. My favorite paper-crafting supply is definitely the Cricut. I got the Create in September 2009. Then after seeing the error of my ways, I upgraded to the Expression last December. LOVE it!! And I don't even want to mention all of the cartridges I've managed to collect in that short period of time. Thank you, eBay!!

7. Someday I see myself relocating to the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado. It is amazingly beautiful there to me.

8.  I rarely watch TV, but if I do manage to sit down and watch, it's most likely the Disney Channel with my girls. Otherwise, I'm glued to my PC probably perusing the blogs of you wonderfully talented people! :)

I am a total junkie too! I go to Archiver's and buy things because they are so pretty... not because I'm going to actually use them! My husband calls me a collector. :)
