I made a blog button & I’m very versatile

I learned how to make a blog button over the weekend!  Woo hoo!  Happy dance going on over here…  If you don’t know how to make one and want to learn you can visit Blogging With Amy for a step by step tutorial.

  Now on to the Versatile Blogger Award…

I started my blog about a year ago.  Mostly because I love sew and create things but also because all my kids were in school and momma was home all alone.  I didn’t really know how to handle the new transition in my life.  This has given me something to look forward to every day.  Getting to share my ideas with all of you… And hopefully you like them.

I want to thank  The Reinvented Lass for giving me this blogging award.  She has some great stuff about dancing, budgeting, and crafts over on her blog you should really check out… 

According to the requirements of the award I must:

• Nominate 15 other bloggers

• Inform my nominees

• Share 7 random facts about myself

• Thank those who nominated me

• Add a picture of the award to this post

Okay now I am supposed to nominate 15 other blogs that I like to pass on this award to them.  This I think is the hardest thing to do because there are so many great ones out there.  15 that’s a lot for me to narrow it down too!
