I feel All Fluttery Inside!

As mentioned in the previous post, I am so honored to have received the Butterfly Award that is fluttering about on many crafting blogs lately! Samantha of bestowed this lovely award on my blog and now I need to do some homework to earn it and pass it along.

To receive this award, I need to: answer the following questions, award this  Butterfly award to 10 other bloggers, contact the 10 bloggers to let them know they have been given this award, and I also need to show a link to the person who gave me the 'Butterfly award (check!).

Here are the questions with my answers:

Q1) Name your favorite color.
Today it is turquoise, but that could change literally at any given moment. Squirrel!!

Q2) Name your favorite song.
Another thing that changes for me at any given moment.
Right now I really like "I'm With You"
By Nichole Nordeman and featuring Amy Grant.

Here are the lyrics:

Love is a hurricane in a blue sky
I didn't see it coming, never knew why
All the laughter and the dreams
All the memories in between
Washed away in a steady stream.
Love is a hunger
A famine in your soul
I thought I planted beauty
But it would never grow.
Now I'm on my hands and knees
Trying to gather up my dreams
Trying to hold on to anything.
We could shake our fist in times like this
When we don't understand or we could just hold hands

You and me
Me and you
Where you go I'll go too
I'm with you, I'm with you,.
'Till your heart finds a home
I won't let you feel alone,
I'm with you, I'm with you, with you.

You do your best to build a higher wall
To keep love safe from every wrecking ball
Then the doctors clearly will
See the house that love rebuilt
Guarding beauty that lives here still.


Who can say I'm left with nothing?
When I have all of you, all of you
In the way you've always loved me.
I remember, He does too.

Pretty, huh? It is based on the biblical figures, Ruth and Naomi.

Q3) Name your favorite dessert.
Fresh baked cookies!!
Chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, sugar - Oh I'm not picky! Bring 'em on!

Q4) What wizzes you off at the moment?
Construction traffic.

Q5) Your favorite pet?
My 14-year old black lab, Daisy. She's AWESOME!!
(My golden-not so much! He's a brat.)

Q6) Black or White?
I do enjoy my white space.

Q7) Your biggest fear?
Dying too young - I want to watch my girls grow up.

Q8) Best Feature?
My kid-like freckles-LOL!

Q9) Everyday attitude?
I wish I could say I am positive as I always sound in the crafting blogging world,
but my attitude could use some improvement for sure.

Q10) What is perfection?
If you've followed for a while, you'll know that I'm a Colorado mountains chick.
I live in the Midwest, but long for those majestic landforms.
Me perched on one with my camera is quite the
perfect bonding moment with God and his beautiful creation.

Q11) Guilty Pleasure?
Buying crafting supplies of course!

Q12) When you're upset you . . .
Vent  . . . mostly to my sis

Now I need to pass this fun award on, but I really hate choosing! Do you see my blog roll??? There are so many talented crafters out there that it is very hard for me to pick.
