Stylish & Cricut-Tastic!

I am honestly humbled - 2 dear fellow crafters have chosen me to receive 2 very cool awards.

The first award came from Cindy at My Lazy Crafternoon:

To receive this award the rules to be followed are:

Step 1 - Make a post linking back to the person who gave you the award.
Step 2 - Share 8 random things about you.
Step 3 – Award 8 recently discovered bloggers with this award.
Step 4 – Contact these bloggers and tell them they have won the award.

8 Random Things About Me
1) I hate mustard, but can't eat a McDonald's hamburger without it
2) I wear a size 10 shoe
3) I am the oldest of 4 kids
4) I love birds - if something has a bird on it, I have to have it - however, I would never want to have a bird as a pet
5) I love the smell of pickles
6) My favorite childhood movie is Goonies
7) I still use the same hair pick I used to tease my hair with in High School
8) Leaving a comment on my blog will MAKE MY DAY!

I am so new to blogging, that I don't have enough people to forward this to.  I will start with these talented ladies, and will reserve the remaining spots for future new-found blogs.

OK - Secondly, Pat from Pat's Scraps awarded me with:
By receiving a Cricut-tastic Award...

Your blog has been deemed Cricut-tastic!  Wear this badge proudly on your blog and share it with friends.  Share this award with 10 people that you think have Cricut-tastic blogs. 

You also have to tell 5 Cricut related things about yourself. 
  1. My hubby bought me the Baby Bug 1.5 years ago - who knew what he was starting!
  2. I now own the plum expression
  3. I find assembling layers of cricut cuts very therapeutic, and try to put at least one on every card I make 
  4. Any time I'm in my craft room working, my hubby refers to it as "Cricutting"
  5. I am afraid to try chipboard or vinyl in my Cricut - I hate to waste, so I haven't tried yet for fear of failure
Again, I'm lacking 10 new people to share this with, but I will add to the list as I meet more new friends on here :)  For now, I'd like to share this award with the following:

Heather at Paper Crafters Anonymous - She always has the cutest Cricut cuts on all of her cards :)

Ok - Thank you so much Cindy & Pat for thinking of me for these awards.  This community is awesome!


  1. Aloha Julie,
    Congrats on having 2 awards. You're sooo lucky but you do deserved it. Your blog is amazing. I wished someone would have given me my first award.I am a new follower. I'm also having a Aloha Sweet blog candy so please follow back and help me reach my goal.

  2. You're welcome, Julie! Glad you had fun with it. I've never cut chipboard either even though I did buy the deep blade. Someday...!--Pat N.
