The Stylish Blogger Award!

This morning I found out I had been given a very sweet Blog Award, by Mary of Crocheting the Day Away - one of my favorite crochet blog buddies!

Here's what Mary had to say about me:

Sarah has been a big inspiration for me! She is definitely someone I look up to for crocheting. And can I just say, I think it’s amazing she can get in some time to be creative and crafty when she’s taking care of 5 kiddos, one being a new baby.

Thanks so much Mary!  It's so nice to know that, as a blogger you're not just throwing stuff out into cyber-space - that someone is actually listening!!  I so appreciate all of my readers and followers...It's great to have some really cool adults to connect with!!


Here's my job now:  I need to tell you seven random things about myself, and then pass this lovely award along to seven other wonderful bloggers!

Here goes:

1.  I met my husband in a community theatre production of Fiddler on the Roof.  (During the one scene where guys and girls dance together, we were partners!)
2.  I recently did the cover art for a book that my brother and his good friend wrote and published, The Tale of Telsharu.  (You can see more about it HERE.)
3.  I am addicted to So You Think You Can Dance?
4.  My favorite type of food is soup.  I love all kinds of soup.
5.  I've moved 17 times in my 32 years of life, attended four different Elementary Schools, two Junior Highs, and two High Schools.
6.  I'm 5' 1" tall and my maiden name was Stubbs.  Nice.
7.  I also make paper maché masks that I sell on my sisters Etsy site, HERE.

So now I get to pass this award onto a few of you!
