2 New Awards and some babble

Hi everyone,

Sorry that I have been a little out of touch this past week. It has just been a whirlwind of events for me since Valentine’s Day. All is good, in fact all is great! My boyfriend of 2 ½ years proposed to me on Valentine’s Day! He surprised me when he gave me the ring that I had my heart set on. We had looked at rings over a year ago and he remembered the one I had fallen in love with. Unfortunately, the ring while beautiful and very expensive was not a good choice :0( The first one, the one that he gave me on Valentine’s Day within 4 hours a stone fell out! The next day he exchanged it and was given another one, upon inspecting it I realized it had some white/frosted spots within the main stone…arghhh! So we decided to return the ring altogether and look elsewhere. After looking around for a few days and visiting several different jewelry stores. I’m happy to say that not only did I find a more beautiful ring; it was also much less expensive. So that means more money for paper crafting and Cricut! Hey, at least I have my priorities straight :0) I also have been busy making my very first custom order; I am making invitations for a Sweet Sixteen. I will be posting the pictures in a day or two. In the meantime, I wanted to take a moment and thank two very talented ladies for their generosity and awarding me the “Liebster Award”! The Liebster Love Blog award is designed to recognize bloggers who have less than 300 followers but whose work deserves gigantic praise.

Thank you to Gina from and Rae from these ladies are absolutely amazing!! Definitely stop by their blogs and check out their incredible creations. So upon receiving this award  I am to spread the love by recognizing up to five blogs whose work I follow and admire.  I follow so many blogs and there are so many creative bloggers out there, that it really is so difficult to choose only 5.  Nevertheless, I am excited to pass this honor on to the following talented bloggers:
