My first blogger awards!

Many thanks to Kim at "Chubby Cheeks Thinks!"  I really appreciate it... and the kick in the pants to post something new!  :)

First, she gave me a Sunshine Award!  I really like that one- I wasn't having a particularly sunny day until now.
She also gave me a Versatile Blogger Award.
As part of accepting this award, the winner must first thank the person they received it from, so again, thank you so much Kim!  Next I must share seven things about myself, so...

1. I frequently say I have "crafters' ADD" because while I sew a bit, scrap, make cards, beaded jewelry, and Christmas ornaments of various types, I recently started making Scrabble tile jewelry, and have materials to do Temari balls, Fimo projects, and have lots of bells, silk flowers, glass bits, etc. etc. etc.  A nickname for the office/craft room is the craft warehouse for this reason:

That's just the odds and ends- it doesn't include the wall full of stamping supplies.  One of these days I'll actually do something with all of that stuff.  :)  It's pretty much the supplies I've collected throughout my life.

2. When younger, I never wanted to have kids.  Later, I really didn't plan to have kids.  Later, I was mostly open to having kids but got pregnant much faster than I expected and had a hard time being pregnant mentally and emotionally- I call it pre-partum depression.  I love my boy to no end but one's enough.

3. I have a M.S. in computer animation and graphics.  I'll never use it.

4. My favorite 2 meals as a kid were tuna casserole and liver (still love them both.)  I hated chocolate chip cookies (still do.)

5. I like Imagination Movers as much as my son does.

6. Peppermint may be my favorite flavor.

7. Honeysuckle and fresh cut grass may be my favorite smells.

Finally, as part of accepting the Versatile Blogger Award, I need to pass it onto 10 blogs and I'm passing it on to these 10 (in no particular order):

1. Holley's Hobbies
2. Mommy PR
3. Sweet Greens
4. Tip Junkie
5. Mod Podge Rocks
6. Frugal Creativity
7. Babes & Kids
8. Vanilla Joy
9. Momsense in NJ
10. A Crafty Little Place

3rd Birthday Robotz

Well, I finally did something with those Cricut Robotz I posted the other week. 

It's a bit hard to tell but I used a silver shimmer spray on the robot's background paper after I embossed it.  The Party line is also sponged with silver ink (the spray made the ink run and I just don't have the time to go back and spray first, stamp later.)  The "screw" in the bottom corner is stamped from Ageless Adornment and Crystal-effected.  I used the design from the Get Sketchy Challenge #42.

Truth be told, I'm not entirely thrilled with the card.  It came out a bit more bland than I'd pictured but I've simply run out of time since the invites should have gone out about 2wks ago.  Oh well.  I don't hate it, I'm just a bit underwhelmed by it.

Just for giggles, here are the robots:
