E is for Excellent

Hi there! Did you all have a fun weekend?? Happy President's Day!!

Two of my favorite online friends, Kim and Jennie, awarded me the Excellent Blogger Award! How sweet of them!! I'd like to pass on the sweetness and award a few of my friends that I don't think have been awarded yet, Nancy, Lexi, Tracy and Stacy! They are all so inspiring and wonderful to me and I'm thankful for their friendhips, they mean so much to me!! :D

Stacy also tagged me with this game:

Stamping Style - hmm, tough one, I like so many different styles and trying new things. Not sure I've really found my style yet. But I do like cute and pretty. I'm not really a vintagey kinda girl and haven't mastered the simple style yet, so somewhere in the middle.
Inspiration - I find inspiration from many different things. SCS is a huge resource for me, I love looking at all the creations that other stampers have made and am in awe of the talent on there!! Sometimes I get inspired by ads and things in magazines, maybe colors or themes.
Color - I love pretty colors, soft and earthy. I'm not too big on bright bold colors although, I'm coming around to them a bit more and have been attempting to use them a bit lately.
Work space - Umm, messy?? LOL! I have a little office that was supposed to be my hubby's and I quickly took it over and made it my craft room! I have too much stuff to fit in here though so it's a huge mess!! :D
Perfect day - Hmm, sleeping in, my kids all being sweet and lovey and not fighting or whining, no chores to do and stamping to my heart's content!! :D
First job – I worked at a little drugstore as a checker. I loved that job!! But, it went out of business about 6 months after I started working there and then I got a job at a pizza restaurant as a waitress.
Wildest dream – Not sure? Would have something to do with being on the island with all the hunky men from LOST and no smoke monsters or Others!!! (Sorry DH!!! It's only a dream!) :D
Ink – I love Palette Hybrid inks, chalk inks and Memories Black ink. SU inks are great too since they match all the CS and papers so well!
Family – Me, DH, 1 son and 2 daughters. One Kitty, 2 water frogs, 3 fish.
Beverage - Pepsi!! Iced tea too!!
Biggest challenge - Adopting my son. Raising kids in general is a lot tougher than I thought it would ever be! :D

I'd like to tag:
Jennie
Michelle
Geeta
Amanda
