Stylish Blogger Award....Imagine That!!

I was so surprised to received this lovely Stylish Blogger Award.  I have never spoken or met any other blogger in the paper crafting world, so this is quite fun.

I received this award from
She has tons of fun cards and projects.  Great blog Melissa!  Thank you so much for choosing me as one of the 8 recipients.

Here's what I have to do...

1.  Thank the person who gave this award to me and link it back to their blog (see above link)

2.  Share 8 things about yourself.

3.  Pass this award to 8 others individuals that I have recently discovered.

4.  Leave a comment so they can pass along the recognition.

8 things about myself:

1.  I live in a small gold mining community in Northwestern Ontario.

2.  I worked for Scotiabank for 17 years until my retirement in October.

3.  I have two wonderful daughters.  One lives at their fishing camp here in Red Lake, the other at their fruit orchard in the Niagara area.  Fish or apples anyone?

4.  I have five beautiful grandchildren.  Three boys and two girls.  They are all delightful!!

5.  I enjoy crime shows and hate reality television.

6.  I signed up for our community's Biggest Loser (Lifestyle) Challenge and am now committed to six months of healthy living...wish me luck!! (What was I thinking?!)

7.  I was introduced to Stampin' Up! through my daughters.  My oldest told my youngest about Stampin' Up!, who then signed up as a demonstrator without knowing anything about stamping.  When she decided not to be an active demonstrator, I decided to make it part of my retirement.  It's all their fault!!

8.  Sometimes I have a bit of a problem with motivation, so I started a blog to make sure I started and finished my projects.

I've been following a number of blogs thanks to Stampin' Connection and they are all so fun!!

These are the ones I have chosen to extend this award to....
