Slacker, I mean Sunshine Award

First of all thanks so much to Allison at Oopsey Daisy for awarding me with the Sunshine Award. Although I think right now I deserve the Slacker award! Luckily I haven't been slacking in all aspects of my life, just the blogging one! We have had some absolutely gorgeous weather and I feel it is practically a sin to stay inside when it is so nice outside because I know that soon enough it is going to be too hot and humid to do anything outside unless you are swimming. So we have been going to the park practically everyday, riding bikes, flying kites, blowing bubbles and drawing with sidewalk chalk. I even have the beginnings of a tan line from my flip flops! Then this past weekend I attended a Creating Keepsakes convention with my mother-in-law. It was awesome! I have tons of layouts that I will post as well as lots of cool techniques that I learned! But that also means that part of my week was spent getting my house "mother-in-law" ready! :) Which took longer than usual since I have neglected my house in favor of playing outside.

That was probably more info that you wanted, but there you go, a reason for my slacking!

So, on to the Sunshine Award!

I now get to spread the sunshine to 12 other awesome bloggers!

So here they are in no particular order...

1. Better Life Bags: She makes awesome bags and even better, it's for a good cause!
2. Honey Bear Lane: She has one of the cutest quilts I have ever seen and way cute appliqu├ęs.
3. Lechateaudesfleurs: She has an absolutely stunning house and does the cutest things with her kids.
4. Babblings from Brooke: She has so many great recipes! My mouth always waters when I read her blog!
5. Remodelaholic: Cassity is getting this award for several reasons. First, she is a friend from high school. Second, she was kind enough to link our adoption profile on her awesome blog. And third, her blog is awesome and she has the greatest ideas that I wish I were talented enough to make!
6. Red Head Craft More Fun: I honestly love everything she does! Way cute stuff!
7. The Thrifty BA: She has lots of cool thrifty ideas and is so good at commenting...something I need to be better at!
8. Brown Paper Packages: Keirste and Angela have cute ideas, my favorites is their wooden step stool with foot prints...go check it out!
9. Organize and Decorate Everything: Combining two of my favorite things, organizing and decorating! Doesn't get better than that!
10. Drab to Fab: These ladies are the ones responsible for my new hobby of frequenting thrift stores to find something to make fab!
11 Twiddle Thumbs: These ladies have the CUTEST wood projects! I need to get me more power tools so I can make stuff too!
12. Studio Calico: I don't know if this is cheating or not, since Studio Calico is a company run blog, but I took one of their classes at CKC and LOVED it! So, they are now one of my favorite blogs. Great inspiration for scrapbookers!

So, thanks again Alison for the Sunshine award! Hope everyone has a great sunshine-y day! I'm enjoying one right now!
