Thanks for the 'STYLISH' LOVE!


My wonderful and sweet friend Catherine surprised me, about 3 weeks ago, with this 'Stylish Blogger Award' (and yes...yikesss this is a LATE post!!) It is great to feel the love from such expert blogger and stamper...

I was also very blessed to receive the same award from Carol, another wonderful and creative stamping  friend of mine with a heart of gold. Carol  passed this award  to me last week, therefore I  feel tremendously blessed and humbled by such dual recognition.

 Catherine & Carol,THANK YOU both soooo much for your friendship,caring and thoughfulness! *love ya girlfriends!*

* check out Catherine awesome blog here: *and Carol's wonderful blog here:


I am proudly displaying BOTH awards received from my awesome friends! :o)

 So, here's how it works:
1. Thank the person(s) who awarded you. (Thanks, Cat & Carol!!!)
2. Share 8 things about yourself.
3. Pay it forward to other 8 bloggers 

 Contact those bloggers to let them know about their award.

Here it goes...8 things about me eh? Hang on, gotta put my thinking cap

I love flying....and feel so elated anytime I take a plane looking at the clouds above and below me...and being such a minute part of the Universe....I suppose perhaps that being in the sky makes me feel much closer to God ?
I am an avid reader,and seldom leave the house without having a  book in my father passed on to me this passion and I still have my favorite books he gifted me when I was a child....
I am the world's worse procrastinator,Have always the best of intenttions yet I have trouble carrying them through in a timely fashion..The joke in my family is that I'll probably be late at my own funeral! lol...
I am a designer paper hoarder...I can't recall how many d/p sheets I owe...yet I keep buying more!
If I live to be 100 I will probably still have some stash
I love nature and camping!....Rediscovered that after buying our RV last year, and leaving at a minute's notice w/ my hubby its just too darn wonderful!
I totally DISLIKE  driving.... much prefer being a passenger,and sit in the back when more than two pp.
I loveeeeeeee shoes...and bags! My passion is italian leather, but do like brazilian leather also :o)
My husband calls me the Imelda Marcos of Canada! *yikesss*
I ADORE the beach...the sounds of the waves in the ocean..the gentle breeze that lulls you.....picking up's absolutly blissful.and oh soooo relaxing ...

***Thank you all, keep up the great work! :o) Blessings!!

Now for the fun part: passing it on to  8 more bloggers ...
well, I decided to go  'international'......*wink*
Please pick ONE award to add to your blog :o)

Congrats on the award, and thank you so much for passing it on to me! I'm brainstorming interesting tidbits about me and will post this weekend. I enjoyed reading the 8 things about you--and totally relate on a bunch of them--love books and the ocean and always like it better when someone else is driving :-) Have a great day!
