Ohhhh my....will I ever "catch up"?
Hello...Hello! Well, as most of you know...I've been "out of pocket" for a couple of weeks and now I'm trying to catch up!!! One of the first things that I would like to do is acknowledge all of the awards that several of you so graciously gave me!!! Please forgive me for being soooooo slow...I really do appreciate all of your kindness....ya'll are just the sweetest to think of me!!!
First of all, my dear friend Lynne over at Lynne's Gifts From the Heart was so kind to give me this "Kreativ Blogger" Award.....Thank you so very much Lynne....you know that I love ya, Girlfriend!!!
Before I move on to the next awards, I sure would like to talk a little about my friend Lynne! She is such an awesome lady....so sweet and so full of energy! Lynne owns and operates a gift shoppe in her home town in Missouri....Lynne's Gifts From the Heart!!! She has recently joined blogland and is sharing some of the "pretties" from her shoppe. I would really like to encourage you to take a little trip over there and check out some of great things that she has!!! You just have to see her Chocolate Santas....they're fabulous!!! Below is a photo of Lynne's shoppe...just to whet your appetite...why just look at all of the "pretties"....you just gotta go and check it out!!!
She's just a click away!
II. "A Perfect Blend of Friendship Award"
Alright!!! On to the second award that I received! My friend Lynette over at "Lynette's L.A.M. Blog" gave me "A Perfect Blend of Friendship Award"....isn't that just the sweetest? Thank you Lynette for thinking of me....you're the best!!! I just love reading Lynette's blog...it's always so innovative and interesting!!! Go say Hi and meet a great lady!!!
As a part of the this award, there are four questions to be answered....so here it goes!
1. Do you have the same friends since childhood?
Oh my....sure wished that I could say "yes" to this one but I can't! My family moved alot while I was growing up...we moved twelve different times before I married at age 17. I think you just develop a different kind of mentality of having lasting friendships when your experience is moving to a different home and school nearly every year!!!
2. What do you value most about your friends?
Wow...this is a difficult question because there are many things that I value about my friends! If I had to single it down to just one thing....I value the loving concern that my friends have for me and others!!!
3. Are your friends sounding boards?
Oh yes....I have the wisest and most talented friends....I cherish their ideas and opinions!!!
4. What is your favorite activity to share with your friends?
Sharing like passions....such as interior decorating, crafting, etc! And sharing our Faith!!!
Sooooo...there you have it!!! Hehe!!! Now, I have to pass this “Friendship Award” on to four of my treasured Blogville Friends; Each of these precious ladies are very dear friends to me and they definitely have that "perfect blend" of friendship!!!

III. "Autumn Friends Award"
Last but certainly not least...my friend Kristen gave me the "Autumn Friends Award"! I tell ya what, surely my cup runneth over...I have been so blessed to have so many dear sweet friends! Thank you so much Kristen for thinking of me!!! Ya'll have to go and check out Kristen's blog "Kristens Creations"....she has already started decorating for Christmas and she is one talented gal!!! I just know that you'll love everything she's done and you'll get some fabulous ideas!!!
