Honest Scrap


Happy Tuesday!!



I still can't believe that I didn't win the HGTV's Dream Home. They didn't even call me!!! oh, well, I guess I will be content in my own home. Today is Tuesday--the day I see my CPA about my taxes! Wish me luck.

Rhonda at Down Memory Lane passed the Honest Scrap Award to me!! Thank You so much Rhonda! I was so surprised when I read that you picked me, so thank you.! Honesty is the best policy. (But, it has gotten me into trouble sometimes when I speak before I think). The requirements are that I have to list 10 things about myself and then pass it on to others. So, here we go...

1- I love a bargain! Just ask my daughters. Sometimes I embarrass them when I ask for a discount. Just recently I saved over $100 just by asking if there was a "special" I could use for my order. The salesperson looked and, yes, there was and she applied it to my order.
2-I love rituals and ceremonies.! I gave my house a name and had a "House Blessing" party for it with everyone involved blessing each of the rooms with bell ringing and candle burning (actually the 3 year-old turned a flashlight on and off representing the candle!)
3-My family is my treasure.! I love each of them dearly and miss those who are not near.
4-My favorite color is red! I have it in almost every room in my house and I am wearing it right now.
5- I am a list maker. I live by my lists. I sometimes list something just so I can cross it off when it is done.
6- My motto for a house is "nothing is permanent".! Needless to say, I have done 7 remodels -two to flip for resale.
7- Another motto is "any excuse for a party"! But I don't like chit chat or cocktail parties.
8- I have become more outgoing, stronger and braver in the last 4 years.
9- I love all things feminine.
10- I am a child of God.

Now that you know more about me, I am passing this Honest award on to some new friends I would like to know better.

Vilate of My Corner of the Net... who is abusy mom, scrapper, disigner and gardner.
Betty of BerryMorrin Bits and Tips who is a busy mom, small business owner and menu planner.
Ashley of Delancey Dish who is 8 1/2 months pregnant, a business owner and mom to two dogs. and Jen at Tatertots and Jello a busy mom of four and fashion deva to all who know her.


Also, Wendy at Wenderful another busy mom of 4 who is trying to decide which animals to get for her kids today.

Good list Mom! You DO like a good bargain - but I am the same way! Your house blessing was a really cool thing. And you have become much stronger over the past 4 years. I know Dad would be proud!

Have a super time at the tax place - JK!

XOXO

Great list and I really like getting to know you better. I that thought your ritual of of your home warming and house blessing was wonderful. We have blessed homes, but I think the bell ringing and candles was charming and bet the kids really enjoyed blessing grandma's home!
I too love a great bargain and have embarrased family by asking....we have saved a lot of money by doing so!
Good luck with your taxes;]

I LOVE bargains! Of course my family. Red is MY favorite color! I am a list maker, I love parties, and I love the Lord! See I told you I could identify with just about everything!

Love the House Blessing idea!
