Stylish Blogger Award


Hello everyone! I just received this award from Jean Martin from Stampin Scrapper. I have been following Jean's blog for some time now and was so surprised when she started following mine, plus gave me this award. Jean, you're too sweet and I just love your cards and style!

I also received this award from Tarynne who just happens to live in the city next to mine. Who knew I'd find such a close neighbor while traveling through the blog land. She has a super fun style that always make me feel happy. Thanks, Tarynne for the award. It made my day and I am so happy to have found a blogger and crafter in my neck of the woods.

Rules that accompany this award: 
  1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this.
  2. Share 8 things about yourself.
  3. Pay if forward to bloggers that you have recently discovered.
8 Things About Myself:
  1. I have lived in the same town my entire life. That sounds boring, but I love California and the perfect weather year-round.
  2. When I was little, I wanted to become either a store merchandiser or a photographer for store catalogs. I still love browsing them to this day and look for new trends and styles. 
  3. I secretly wish to act/sing in a theatrical play (not that I have the talent for this). Darn, now it's not a secret!
  4. My favorite food is chips and salsa with guacamole. 
  5. I was once an antiques dealer who sold vintage toys. 
  6. Even though I am only 30 something, I love big band music and bluegrass (but I love every type of music).
  7. I wish I could wear my favorite sandals and jeans to work everyday.
  8. If I ordered a coffee at Starbucks, it would be a Venti White Chocolate Mocha with an added shot. At Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, it would be a large 3 shot Caramel Latte. 
Wonderful Bloggers I've Recently Discovered (in no particular order):
  1. Viola - she has the "creme de la creme" shabby chic style. Her cards have layers of details that I always try to take all in whenever I visit her blog. I love all the vintage details she adds, the staining and distressing, and the textures of her creations. 
  2. Chan - I found Chan in Papercrafts Magazine and was really drawn to her cards. I found her blog and was immediately impressed at her clean and simple style. And she can trim and cut around any detail on any stamp! I don't know how she does it so perfect! 
  3. Lindsay - she has such a great eye for placement of embellishments. I really love all the bright colors she uses on her cards and how each card she creates is different from the last. I wish I knew how she thinks of all these gorgeous designs. 


  1. Thank you so much Kimberly! I am honored that you would bestow this award on me! Loved learning about you a little and will have to take a better look at your lovely creations! Thank you again for the recognition.

  2. I love California too. I used to live in San Diego. My oldest in in college there. Love the weather. :)
