Stylish Blog Award



Well, no one has EVER accused me of having style - but since I received this sweet, sweet, Blog Award from Monica, I guess you'll just have to say - I Got Style!!! This is the second Blog Award I've received from Monica - how terrific is that!!!! Love it Monica. Be sure and check out her BLOG as she makes such sensational cards.

I think I'm suppose to give eight facts about myself........

1. I'm older than dirt - but still kicking (just not as high anymore)
2. I have two granddaughters and my husband has six (alot of happy feet running around when they're all here at the same time) Plus, my son and his wife will be having a baby in February
3. We have a little doxie named Rambo - who RULES this household
4. I used to be a sailing, canoe, and swimming instructor - and no, I was NOT the bikini type (although I'm sure I would have looked stunning in one)
5. I retired as a Pre Trial Release Probation Officer after 24 years. I knew it was time to retire when the defendants kept getting younger and I kept getting older. One of my last "clients" said his goal in life was to become a Rock Star - time for me to retire!
6. I started making cards because I thought I could save money making my own!!! Yikes
7. I live in an extremely small town in Texas but love it.
8. I enjoy making crafts and blogging and would not trade anything for the blogging buddies I've made. They are all very special.

That about sums it up............hope everyone is having a nice weekend and be sure and check out Monica's blog.

Thanks for stopping by.................

Congratulations on you award Lynn! By the way here on the western slope we have what is called "Gold"... A relly rich type of dirt...so if you have to be old as dirt...then make it "gold" dirt!!

Seasons Greetings

Very interesting facts. I could never be a probation officer. I am very cynical about people and I would never be able to believe that any of them was innocent or was keeping on track.

Hubby is a law enforcement officer. He said that he knew he was getting old when he arrested someone this year who was born after he started working for this agency in 1991.
