Butterfly Award :)

I received a blog award :)
Samantha from Hooliewood Creations passed it on to me.
I tell you that girl can make some awesome cards. She is so detailed and her cards are so pretty, not to mention her amazing colouring.

Now to accept this award I need to answer some questions about myself.
I really think you all know all about me already, probably more than you want to ;)
So here it goes:
Q1) Name your favorite colour
Burgundy. But it has to be the right colour burgundy. It has to have the right amount of red in it.
Q2) Name your favorite song?
This is so hard as I don't have a favourite song. I love all types of music.
Right now I am really loving Eminem's new CD.

Q3) Name your favorite dessert?
This one is even harder. I love all desserts :)
I love my blueberry cheesecake.

Q4) What wizzes you off at the moment?
Wizzes, lol.
I get ticked off by mean people. I don't understand how anyone can enjoy making someone else feel bad.

Q5) Your favorite pet?
You know I have to say Rose our cat.
But I loved Hubby's cat Veikko, and I had a mini poodle, Sheba, when I was 15 my mom gave me as a Birthday gift.

Q6) Black or White?
Neither, I like colour.
To me nothing is a black or white issue.

Q7) Your biggest fear?
My hubby or my daughters getting sick.
Q8) Best Feature?
Hubby says its my.......
I think it may be my imagination.

Q9) Everyday attitude?
To find something good in everything.
Look around you, there is beauty all around us, we just have to keep our eyes open.

Q10) What is perfection?
Is there such a thing?
Sitting at our cottage with my family, reading a book, smelling the fresh air and listening to Wayne and my girls laughing

Q11) Guilty Pleasure?
I can list 11 of them, teehee.
Coca Cola
Shopping for scrapbooking goodies
the Internet

Q12) When you're upset you?
Swear. Yup, I swear like a trucker, lol.
Honestly, I need to talk about it. I will talk to Wayne, my girls, my friends. Once I talk about it and then listen to the opinions of others then I can think about the situation and figure out the solution.

Now to pass this award onto 10 other crafty friends...
Seriously this is the hardest part of it all.
I want to cop out and give it to everyone who visits my blog today, but I know, no one will post it unless I personally mention their names.

I made it an even dozen, just how I like my donuts, lol.

I made a cool card, but I don't think I can show you it, as I had to alter the stamped image. I think that is against the stamps policy....but just know it turned out awesome, lol.

Thankful Tuesday:
-I was able to enjoy taking Kristy out for brunch for a last day of freedom before school starts tomorrow.
-I waited on hold for an hour, but got our cell phone company to take off the $500.00 of roaming fees they charged us.
-I lost my dollar in the pop machine, but the manager gave me a free cold one from their cooler
-I got to enjoy 2 creepy movies with hubby tonight
So what are you Thankful for Today?

Hope your Tuesday was a creative one.



  1. You sweetie, you! Thank-you! My kidlets start school tomorrow as well. That also means that I am back to work, so it will be a couple of days before I get to blog about it!
    Tomorrow is my second dd's 12th birthday!

  2. Thank you Tracy. I will have to do this tomorrow as I just finished the video and posting to my blog. So tomorrow it is.

  4. What a fun award - congrats! LOL!!

    Just wanted to stop by and thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. {{{HUGS}}} to you for that first anniversary! xo

  5. Ahhh thanks for thinking of moi! You know I'm horrible at commenting and I comment on your blog the most! Goes to show you how bad I am! Now I have to think up fake answers for these questions...

  6. Congrats on the award. Fun to read the answers! :) And you got the phone company to reverse $500 in roaming charges? Wow. I need to learn how to do that as I need to have a similar conversation with my cable company. Hope I'm as successful as you!

  7. Congrats on the award! You really deserve it too! You post almost every day!

    And THANK YOU friend for giving me the award too! Not sure that I deserve it. If it weren't for you, I don't think anyone would comment on my blog.

    WTG on getting that roaming charge deleted! That should make you proud for a month! I'm proud of a lot of things, but I guess it could be for getting a little more motivated to work on my craft show projects and liking how they turn out!

  8. Congratulations on your award -- and, thanks!

  9. Congratulations!!!!! I always love reading and learning more about you :) wizzies is a funny word!

    $500 in roaming charges? That was definitely worth the wait!

  12. Congratulations on the award! :-) I love all of your answers. The one that struck me the most was your favorite music. I like all kinds of music too and just yesterday I was listening to Eminem on the radio and my son was like, "What???" lol!

  13. What fun questions, How do you pick a favorite dessert? It's dessert! Thanks for the blog award! I love reading your blog and seeing your great projects!

  14. Awww Tracy, you are too sweet! Thank you for another award :0) I will try to get to it in the next few days or so. Caleb has a surgical tooth removal tomorrow, not going to be fun. Then Jeremy and I's anniversary is on the 13th so we are going out this Saturday, if Caleb feels better. Plus I am going to need time to think about the answers to those questions :0) Would love for you to e-mail a pic of your card :0) Hugs!
