Three Blog Awards in One Week!

Hello everyone!  I hope your day (or evening) is going well.  This week, I received three blog awards! Wow!  It's been awhile since an award has been given to me and so I'm thrilled to accept these and show these with pride on my blog. 

The first award was given to me by Ginger over at Making.Memories.Iowa (  Check out her blog.

The Leibster Blog Award is given to bring new blogs to light.  It's a great way to share blogs that might not be otherwise seen or ones you want to share with others.

           your 3 to 5 blog picks.
       2. Let them know you chose them
       3. Copy and paste the blog awrd on your blog
       4. Have faith that your followers will rally and show their craft love back out to
           those you awarded
      5.  Have fun!
