Award? For me??? :D

What a nice suprise! I just got this cute thing from Miss Adri over at Ma Cherie Creations. Isn't that the sweetest thing ever? It definitely brightened my blustery, snowed-in blizzardy day. :)

And now I will play along with the game that goes with the award. . .

These are the rules for accepting ...

When you accept the award, you must:

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

I also follow a ton of blogs and I really enjoy surfing around to see what is out there. . . but I can only pick eight, so here we go!

A must stop for me. . . there is always so much inspiration coming from Sandy, not to mention that she is the Queen of Operation Write Home, a cause that I am very passionate about!

A blog that I found on one of the OWH blog hops originally, I can't get enough of Seongsook's creations.

I don't often pay real money for things online like digital stamps and such, but I have collected many from Dustin Pike and they are worth every penny. . . he is my favorite Doodle artist! I can't even tell you how much I love creating cards with his designs.

Nikki is another artist that caught my eye a long time ago when I was introduced to Operation Write Home. Her cards and creations are so unique and I always love to peek in and see what she has been up to.
My morning browsing usually starts with a cuppa joe and some blog surfing - it is only appropriate to stop by here and see what Heather has been up to. It's ALWAYS something cute.

I can't get enough of Kim and her cute family and the fun links and ideas she comes up with. Kim is the Commander in Chief of Express the Moment and I will also always be grateful to her for the fun times that I have with ETM!

Cindy - another fellow OWH bloghopper - is responsible for my addiction to Close To My Heart products and I completely blame her for the burn on my table caused by the heat embosser. JUST KIDDING CINDY! I love you!

When I grow up, I want to be able to create beautiful things like Windy . . . I'm pretty sure I found Windy along the way at OWH but it could have also been from magazine surfing. . . Windy's work has been featured in CARDS magazines and I am always looking forward to seeing what she has been up to.

And now eight things about myself...

1.) I love those Dancing shows on TV, I save them all on the DVR and watch them while I am stamping. . . Dancing With The Stars, So You Think You Can Dance, Dance Your A$$ Off, etc. I love them.

2.) I love animals and share this love with my son - we have been blessed with several fun different types of pets over the years - dogs, cats, tortoises, birds, hamsters, fish, and our current furry creature is a ferret. We love him! I have promised my son that some day we will travel to Austrailia to see the zoo where Steve Irwin used to do shows.

3.) I have been working in health care pretty much all of my life. I started as a habilitation tech, worked as a CNA, and got my nursing license in 1994. I currently work in orthopedics. Hospital shift work is hard, but seeing broken people get better is very rewarding, and I have met a ton of lifelong friends along the way.

4.) I am a big Star Trek geek and I love anything "Trekkie."  Hubby and I are sad that the Star Trek Experience is no longer at the Hilton in Las Vegas. What will we do for vacation now? My favorite series? Voyager. No wait, TNG. . . ack, I love them all. Live long and prosper! Make it so!

5.) My underwear has to match my outfit. This poses a problem for the new "standardized scrubs" rule at the hospital. We are being forced to wear navy blue. Hmm.

6.) My favorite movies are the Epic historical adventure types like Braveheart, Gladiator, and such.

7.) I used to play Dungeons and Dragons with dice and paper and a pencil. :) My favorite part though, was doodling sketches of the characters in the margins.

8.) I live only an hour or so outside of Yellowstone National Park. I love where I live. I love to go to the park, I live to camp and ride and enjoy the outdoors. They say that Yellowstone is one huge cauldron or ancient volcano that is going to blow up and kill us all some day. I am ok with that. . . what a way to go!

Hey thanks Adri for the cute award. . . and thanks for stopping by. We are snowed in today. All of the roads and schools are closed. There is a blizzard moving in. We only have a foot or so here in town but in Island Park (just outside of Yellowstone) they are measuring the snowfall in feet instead of inches. I am spending the day working on my Christmas cards. :) Cheers!

Oh my goodness, Nancy! how SWEET of you! This totally made my day. I am glad you like to visit and join me for a morning cup of joe! :) I can't wait to post about this award and thank you again for the uplifting note! (I had to laugh at your "Blowing up" comment ;) HAHAHA!!!)
