Stylish Blogger Award

Jen Wills of JENerally Speaking honoured me with this blogger award yesterday. To accept this award, I have to meet the following requirements:

  1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award.
  2. Share 8 things about yourself.
  3. Pass it on to 8 bloggers.
  4. Contact those bloggers and tell them about their award.
Thank you so much, Jen! I love receiving these awards from my blogland friends and there's no such thing as having too many!

  1. I love receiving catalogs in the mail. I will flip through them a million times and dog-ear way too many pages 'til the next one comes along and the old ones go in my recycling bin. Among my favourites are JCrew, Dwell Studio, Anthropologie, Restoration Hardware and RH Baby & Child.
  2. I've been house-hunting for more than two years and I'm really hoping we find something before winter is over. I need my own studio space!
  3. I wish I didn't have an acute sense of smell. Anything that has a fragrance bothers me and it's gotten worse over the years!
  4. I love the comments I receive on my blog and am fully appreciative of them! So far I've been able to reciprocate that love and hope to continue doing so each and every time. Occasionally though, there are some whose emails and profiles are blocked and that upsets me! If you're one of those people, just know that I thank you!!
  5. I haven't had a real vacation since my son was born and I desperately need one.
  6. Being the mother of a toddler is tough. In fact, it's much harder than I ever imagined.
  7. I will be an aunt again this week!
  8. Generally, I'm a minimalist but I have hoarded a few crafty things that I have goals to use up (or give away) this year. ;)

And now, to spread the love, here are the lovely ladies I'd like to pass this award to (in alphabetical order by first name):

  1. Barbara Hache - Barbara's Cards and Crafts
  2. Erin Thiem - Homemade Cards by Erin
  3. Julie Elak - The Last Minute Crafter
  4. Karin Martin - With an "i" for Paper!
  5. Lindsey M-P - Bashful Blogging
  6. Monique Hansen - For the Love of Paper
  7. Vicky Hayes - Crafting Clare's Paper Moments
  8. Wendy ten Hove - Wendy's Blog

I will have a Hero Arts post a bit later today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! I hope it's sunny and fun, even if it's cold. :)

This weekend, I found out one of Anthropologie store that I used to window shop is closed. So sad. It was a beautiful place.

Vicky Hayes said...

Thank you so much for thinking of me Emily. I totally agree about being the mother of a toddler - although I would just make it being a mother! Toughest job ever, but definitely the best and the most rewarding!
