Blogger Award ~ Artful Creations ~ January 6

I’m so grateful to have been nominated for this fun blogging award called the Tell Me About Yourself Award from Suzanne Drolet.

Suzanne's Blog is lovely to view and read. I have found it to be very educational in the art department!  Her book reviews will inspire you.  I met Suzanne in our Kelly Rae Robert’s Flying Lessons class.  We are kindred spirits from across the land.  Suzanne is a great friend, artist, and writer too!  I am happy to own some of her amazing work that I received as a Christmas gift from my family… It is called...
love love love love love....
I am nuts about this bird and I am SO happy I have her here where she belongs!
Okay back to business...
The rules to accepting this award are:
1) Thank the person who nominated you – Thank you so much Suzanne!! I am so happy to have met you and excited about our friendship! Congratulations on winning the award!

2) Tell 7 things about yourself

1) I have a great husband and 2 wonderful kids.  We also have 2 dogs that are amazing!  We are lucky to have a lot our family members living in the area as well.

2) I am a substitute teacher and I enjoy teaching grades k-8 in two different school districts.  I love writing poems and am excited to be a blooming artist!

 3) I love Christmas SO MUCH and would like to decorate from October 28 until May 10 every year and leave the tree up.  I would also like to listen to Christmas music for that whole time too.  Also Christmas movies... I could go on forever.....

4) I still love sparkly things, purple and unicorns.

5) I love getting lost in a book.  I read like crazy.  BOOKS RULE! As shown here... My Life in Books

6) I am SO EXCITED to have taken the class Flying Lessons!  I believe that this class has helped me change my life in a wonderful way.  If you want to change your life just go check out Kelly Rae Roberts and all that she shares!!!  Thank you Kelly Rae Roberts!

7) I love watching movies ~ romances and comedies.  I collect all of my favorite movies and then watch (play in the background) them again and again.  They keep me company while I clean and work.  I don’t have to watch the screen to enjoy them after I have seen them once or more; I just enjoy listening to them.  My favorite movie of all times is Ever After with Drew Barrymore.  It is going to be a musical!!!!
