Stylish Blogger Award!

Thank you Kassi!!

Kassi from Truly Lovely was kind enough to award ME with the Stylish Blogger Award!  :D  What a fun surprise that was!  Thanx Kassie, I'm flattered that you included me in your awards list!  She's such a sweet girl! :)  Yay, my first award! :D

The conditions of accepting this award are:
*   mention 7 things about yourself,
*   forward this award onto some other lovely blogs, and
*   link back to the person who awarded you the badge!

So here goes!

7 Things About Me

1.   I'm an attorney by qualification, a business owner by profession, and a crafter by choice.

2.   I'm a cat person through and through.  My kitties are my children, and they make me smile.  They are there to be kissed, squished and spoiled.  :)

3.   I love food.  You can probably get me to do things I don't feel like doing by bribing me with some good (vegetarian) edibles.  And I have an exceptionally sweet tooth - I always have space for dessert, no matter what!  The only purpose of a main course is to get to the dessert.  But I don't really like cooking or baking at all.

4.   Some things that I wish were not about me, but they sadly are: I'm lazy...and I procrastinate things I don't like doing. I'm a very tidy and organized mind in a lazy body.

5.   If I know I'm going to be staying home all day, I usually wear my jammies and slippers. Because they're comfy. And I don't really like wearing heals because I'm tall enough.

6.   I don't easily get stressed over things that don't indicate the end of my world (unless it's public speaking).  I'm a total phlegmatic (mostly).

7.   Rainy days make me feel all fuzzy and happy inside.  Just add some chocolates and I've got myself a perfect crafting day!

Now onto the awards.  I'm supposed to choose 15, but I haven't yet had a chance to get to know and love so many ladies and/or their blogs... So I only have 10 to give today, and 2 of you (according to my best knowledge) have received this award before from someone else, but I want to give you one from ME too! :)  I also tried to choose blogs that each had something different to offer, craft-wise. :)

So, after much deliberation and in no particular order, I award the Stylish Blogger Award to these ladies and their lovely blogs:

Various crafts, including some fun recycled projects (I love recycled crafts!)

Maria from Crafty Creations
Lots of lovely and inspiring cards!

Crystal from Mrs Happy Homemaker
Delicious recipes are to be found here!

Beautiful cards, some also made from recycled materials.

Lovely crafts and cards.  Plus I think she's funny!

Catalina from The "W's"
A collection of the most interesting, weird and beautiful crafts gathered from all over the net - very cool!

Lovely cards, crafts, and delicious chocolatey recipes!  And with a name like that, how could I not love this blog?!

Lovely crafts & cute mini scrapbook albums, including albums made from recycled items!

Lovely cards, scrapbooking and crafts!

Judy from Joy In A Jar
Beautiful cards!

Tnx for your entertaining blogs, ladies! And I'm sure as time goes by, I'll find more blogs to add to my favourites list. :)

Love learning all the things about you! I too am a vegetarian (as of 3/10) and have a sweet tooth! I don't really like to cook/bake either, but I'm trying in 2011.

Thank you for the award.........I was very sweet of you. Don't be offended if I don't play along though....I did once and it just wears me out! I guess that's one thing to learn about me!!
It is SINCERELY appreciated though :)
