And the Awards Go To...

Liz Taylor (doesn't she have THE BEST name?!) at Project Naptime bestowed the kindest compliment to It's Toile Good - she awarded us our first ever Blog Award!  We couldn't be more flattered and love the fact that the projects and ideas we are sharing are being appreciated!  Thank you, thank you to Liz for The Versatile Blogger Award!  There couldn't be better inspiration to keep on craftin' than this!

And now...the rules.
  • Thank and link back to the person that gave you the award.
  • Share 7 things about yourself.
  • Pass the award to 15 blogs you love and enjoy!
  • Let those blogs know they've been given the award.
7 things about moi
SIDE NOTE:  "Moi" refers to Allison.  My awesome partner in blog is on hiatus nurturing her new baby!

1. I have a psychology degree and think its about as useful as a box of rocks.  It was fascinating while I was in college, but don't think I've ever used one bit of it since I graduated.

2. I will not watch horror movies because for weeks afterward I have to wash my face one side at a time so I can always keep an eye open.

3. I wanted to be one of the "Fly Girls" on In Living Color when I was younger - knee pads and all!
4. I have flown a plane.  For a short few minutes, but it counts.  It was a six seater prop plane and I was flying to a teeny island called Los Roques off the coast of Caracas, Venezuela.

5. I can play the chorus of Chariots of Fire and The Rose on the piano.  Sadly, those are the only two things that stuck after many years of practice.

6. I say "y'all" and "bless your heart" and can get quite a twang in my speech when I'm talking with someone who has a thick southern accent and I LOVE being a Texan!

7. I worked as a product specialist in the marketing department of a really cool stationery company before I decided to stay home with my kiddos.  I love paper and written correspondence!  Always write Thank You notes!  It will make someone's day!

To decide on 15 favorite blogs (of the hundreds I follow) is torture!  
Here's my best no particular order.
