And the Award Goes To....

Aw, Shucks, Marianne, you shouldn't have, but I'm honored that you did:

Here are the details of this award copied from Marianne's Art Blog, my words in color:
I give this with no expectations that you’ll display the award or pass it on. Please don’t feel in any way obliged to do so. Just know that I love your blog and want to recommend it to anyone who might not have come across you before now!
If you do want to play along, here are the ‘rules’ – but just do what feels right:
1.Thank the person who gave you the award.
2.Pass this award along to (insert your # of choice here!! teehee, I'm choosing 5) bloggers you’ve recently discovered and whom you think are fantastic!
3.Contact the bloggers you’ve picked and let them know about the award.
4.Share seven things about yourself.
Ok, #1 rule: Thank you Marianne!! I love your art and photography and your generosity of knowledge and caulk!
Now for rule #2: Here are 5 amazing blogs that I have recently discovered, ADORE, and just have been too busy (lazy, really) to add them to my blog roll.
Cinnamon Pink Crusade-love this blog for wonderful collage and journal pages
Natural Dye Journal-I do not sew, repeat, I do not sew. Therefore I covet this artist's work. Her fabric journal covers are wonderful.
Atriphy The Heart-simply delicious journal pages
Fido Art-ok, I'm cheating a little here. Fido Art is not new to me, I stalk Danny's flickr site quite regularly. However his blog is relatively new to me, so I get off on a technicality. so there. teehee.
The Land Of Lost Luggage-Holy Hell Batman, just check this collage artist out. My friend Kathy, turned me on to this blog artist. We are going to sign up for one of her classes. Can't wait!!!
Rule #3, I just sent out 5 very scarey stalker type emails letting the above bloggers know they have been forwarded an award from an unknown admirer. creepy, no? teehee
Rule #4, Share 7 things about yourself.
1. The Blues is My Religion
2. My daughter weighed less than the Perdue Oven Stuffer Roaster I cooked the day before she was born. (Roaster 6 1/2 pounds, Samantha 5 pounds)
3. I get sensory overload while shopping for everything except groceries. If there are too many choices I get anxious. I still shop, but a lot of times I go home and say "I should have gotten this, that, or the other, but I was too overwhelmed to focus and figure out what I really wanted
4. I never know where anything is in my house
5. I love Captain Morgans Spiced Rum
6. I love to watch Previews or Trailers before a movie, I NEVER fast forward thru them
7. I have no idea how to use most of the features on my iphone. I have the most underutilized iphone in the World
And there you have it. xoSusan


  1. A. I love ya more'n my luggage (or my Land of Lost Luggage!) and your blog is the bomb and,

    B. I promise you you don't have the least utilized iPhone in the world - I can promise that that award still remains mine. I rarely know where it is, I don't have text activated, and the only apps I use are the calculator and the voice memo (I taped a Skype conversation the other day for evidence! don't ask.....), and that's it! I did notice on LK Ludwig's blog that she does an iPhone Friday - I think I should do that so my iPhone gets at least a little teensy bit of it's usage going. Hey - maybe I'll take iPhone Friday pics and send them to you and you can post a pic from you and a pic from me! What say?

    You deserve this award and if I could send liquor through the I'd send Captain Morgan as congrats. So you'll just have to pretend that I sent the spicy gentleman your way.

    Now -- to go check out those other blogs you've mentioned. They're all new to me and I need to know.


  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for such a lovely award!!! I will try hard to pass it along soon....but thanks for the "without obligation" stipulation, it may take me a little while to get to it. There are tons and tons of people who deserve this, and YOU are definitely one of them!! Your artwork is amazing!!! XOXO

  3. Whoo-Hoo! Congrats, Susan! Your award is well deserved! A Big "thank you", too, for the links. I'm off to explore1!!! Had to chuckle over your facts. It's taken me almost a year to figure out 1/2 of my Iphone!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo

  4. Congratulations on your award...and THANK YOU for bestowing the same honor on me. I would also like to mention that I am very happy that the words "holy hell" are in my announcement. Thanks for contacting me too...I'll be back to visit. xo

  5. Hey there, Susan ! Congrats on the well deserved award. Fun to get little bits of people's personalities with these 7 things. I don't even have an Iphone. I think my old cell phone takes pictures but I have no idea how or how I would ever get them from the phone to a computer...You are not alone !
    You will have a great time with Julie ! She rocks it big time.
    Enjoy !
