Today has been an exciting one for me because my blog received its FIRST EVER award by the talented Lorraine Castellon-Rowe.  To accept this award, I have to tell you eight things about myself that you might not know, and then I get to present (pay it forward) the award to eight other blogs that I enjoy.  First, I will tell you a few things about myself:

1.  I have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for almost 7 years and have thoroughly enjoyed it!  The best part of being a demonstrator is the friendships that I have made along the way.
2.  I have been a Scentsy consultant for almost one year. 
3.  It's unusual for me to not be found in my stamp room on a daily basis, which is why this room is hardly ever tidy.  I put things in their place prior to classes, and my customers would be shocked if they could see the huge mess that I make when I am creating.  I'm not very disciplined when it comes to immediately putting things away.
4.  I'm addicted to the Investigation Discovery channel.  LMN is also a favorite, but ID seems to be swiftly moving into first place.
5.  Since the time I got my drivers' license, I've had six different cars (two of which are now considered classics . . . '65 Mustang and '72 Camaro).  Four of those vehicles have been involved in accidents . . . one head-on collision, two hit-and-run (I wasn't the hitter), one hydroplane, and two rear-end collisions (I was the one who was hit).  My husband enjoys bringing this up whenever I try to tell him how to drive, but I'm convinced that I have knowledge to offer.
6.  I'm a serious night owl!  Try as I may, I can't seem to find my bed before 3:30 a.m. 
7.  I have one son who will be 20 y/o in June, and he's my absolute best buddy!!!!  He has a wonderful sense of humor!  He reminds me a lot of Doug on "King of Queens."
8.  I have a deficit of patience, but I love life!  I feel that I have been blessed, and I enjoy doing thoughtful things for others.

And now . . . to "pay it forward" and present this award to eight other bloggers, I choose:

My sweet friend, Laura:
My Canadian demo friend with a wonderful sense of humor:
Elaine Byrne, whose blog I recently found:
Sandi Dailey, who has some amazing vintage layouts:

Wow Regina, thank you so much for the award. I am truly flattered, especially because I didn't even know you were a fan. I had so much fun going through your blog. You are a very accomplished artist yourself, especially in the vintage style. And talk about a "to-die-for" studio: you have it!! I am going to be a regular visitor now that I have seen your work!! Thanks again, Sandi

I'm so glad to have found your blog and I enjoy seeing what you will create next. Also, we used to be HUGE King of Queens watchers so having a son like Doug is totally awesome!!

Thank you for passing the Stylish Blogger award to me,Regina! What an honor! I will certainly get busy thinking of who I can pass this on to also!
I love your blog and I'm looking forward to your next MISN (Make it Snappy Monday) project. That is such a great idea, and just the kind of project I like to do!
Thanks so much!

Thank you for the blog award, I need to think of 8 peeps to pass it on to. Once again I want to say how much I love your cards. I have a huge softspot in my heart and wallet for SU Product. Their catalog this year nailed it with the colors and pictures.

Love your latest with the rub-ons and congrats on the award! We are alike in a few ways, at least - I, too, love the ID channel, have a messy stamping room - one of those things I've been meaning to take care of (ha!) - and I too have a derth of patience, but do enjoy my "retired" live! TFS
