Side note - If you are looking for the giveaway it is here :)
I received my first "blogger award". I have to admit, even though I know these circle around and around, I was pretty stinking excited when I saw it :) Kati over at from the blue chair nominated Happy Quilting for the Stylish Blogger Award :) Thank you Kati, and if you haven't checked out her blog, head over there!! She is amazing!!
Okay so the rules for accepting this award are as follows :
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this.
2. Share 7 things about yourself. (So I did 5, I have to go make lunch for the kids)
3. Pay it forward to 7 recently discovered great bloggers.
4. Contact those bloggers and tell them about their Blog Award!
So I thought it would be fun with each random fact I share to also share some of the new additions to the blog recently that have helped to make it so "stylish". So here we go.
1 - BLOG - I had my friend (Cute It Up) design me a new header and buttons that I absolutely love!!!
ME - I am an identical twin and my twin sister is expecting her first little girl, I am so excited for her!!!
2 - BLOG - I recently created a Facebook Page for Happy Quilting and added a "like" widget to make it super easy to "like me". Does that sound silly or what??
ME - Being a twin, I really, really, really, want to have twins of my own. (Yes, even though I already have 4 children I want 2 more :)
3 - BLOG - Per request two days ago, I figured out how to add a feed burner so that you can get email updates every time I post, if you want that is :)
ME - I recently had a fight with my stove top and the stove top won with a 5 foot fire ball. Some of my hair was sacrificed in the fight :) I am not as talented in the kitchen as I am in my sewing room :)
4 - BLOG - I added pages to my blog so that you can easily link to my tutorials and quilt archive.
ME - I was an accountant before I became a mom. I love how everything is always neat and tidy in accounting. Everything must balance. That is probably why I have a harder time with abstract and wonky :)
5 - BLOG - Maybe this isn't stylish but it is certainly helpful, I added numbers to my comments. No more buggy eyes after giveaways :)
ME - I am a can't stop reader. Once I start a book, I tend to drop everything else until I finish it. I find I am the same way with quilting, I don't have a lot of projects going on at once. I like to finish one and then start a new one :)
Okay, enough about me . . .On to my nominations . . .In no particular order here are blogs that I think have a style all of their own, some quilting, some not :)
