Gettin Caught up...

Musings of A Beautiful Mess
Two weeks Alicia posted an entry about Paying it forward. I wanted to participate in it. It sounded like a fun thing to do. PLUS you have a whole year to send something to others. This is PERFECT for me. I am such a forgetful person. I use to not be this way, now I am. Anyway, I left her a comment on her blog and now I'm to pass it on. Here are the rules:

2 wonderful readers will be randomly selected from those who leave a comment on this post, to receive a handmade gift from me within the next 365 days!!!! I think I can stick to this goal. The catch..... you must also be willing to do the same (so you have to have some kinda crafty skill you can share with the world, but really everyone has one of these, a homemade batch of cookies, a card, knitting whatever) and you have to have your own blog to be able to spread this pay it forward love. Get it, get it? Good!

I've admitted to the fact that I am NOT a crafty person. I've done ONE scrapbook, that didn't turn out TOO horrible, but I'm pretty sure I can't make a living at it. I've been taught how to crochet a few times, and I've never quite gotten the hang of it. I can't knit, I've never learned. I doubt that if I was taught, I would be very good at it. I've cross stitched before, but once again, it wasn't beautiful. What I can do, is bake. I can bake cookies, pies, cakes, brownies, and such. I have a few fancy cookbooks that have some awesome recipes in them. I can't promise whatever I bake will be the best thing you've ever eaten in your life, but I can promise you that you won't get food poisoning. I even have 2 recipes for doggie treats, so if you have a doggie that wouldn't mind getting a treat, I can toss that in, too. So, if you would like to join in the fun, you can email me and let me know. Make sure you put your address in the email, so I can send you your goodies. My email is on my profile.

OK, now on the the other thing I neglected all week....

Kristin over at Dragondreamer's Lair gave me an award! WOOO!!!


This award made me smile and get all girly and mushy. I'm always the one who's turning something bad into something positive. My friends have wanted to shove my face in the mud many times, with my rainbows and sunshine, but without it, they would all be so gloomy. I always, well try, to look at the silver lining. For me, it's the only way I can make it through the reality of what life throws at us.

Here are the rules for The Lemonade Stand Award:
1. You must link back to the person you received the award from.
2. You have to nominate 10 bloggers who are deserving of this award

Thank you Kristin for giving me this, I appreciate it and I appreciate you and your thoughtfulness. You're AMAZING!

Now I'm to name 10 bloggers who deserve this award. Just 10?! Sheesh..this might prove to be a bit difficult.
The Muser (AKA Beautiful Mama) over at Musings Musings Musings, Andy over at Today's the day, Sue
ssgirl over at One Day Two day, Jill over at Maybe it's just me, Liv at The Life of Liv, Stephanie at Loving Thee and more, Celia at Breeder Beware, Bec at Crazy Lady Ramblings, Homeywine, because life is life is better with sweetness, and last but NOT least, Dora at ISO the Golden Egg.

WHEW that was tough...hope everyone had a great weekend!

10 friends have commented:

Thanks for the award. You're just dying to know who else I read, aren't ya? hehehe

Yeah, one of these days I'll put up a blog roll of sorts and let the sickos who were posting on my blog find you. :wink:

In all seriousness. Thank you. I think the pay it forward idea is a great one. I tried it once and only got one taker - but it's time to try it again. :)

I love crafty things. I am hoping to surprise a blogger or two over the summer with a custom painting. I need to find some free time first lol

I don't know how long A is staying with us. We will have her about four weeks when we pick her up, but before we leave with her my sister may have us keep her for awhile. 6-8-9-12? months. We don't know, yet.

I hope you share with us what crafty thing you are creating. :-)

Oh thank you! I think I have finally succeeded in getting Mr. to post these for me. I can't link. I have tried and tried.

Your craft skills sound just like mine! I made a scrapbook once and was pretty proud of how it turned out, then I saw other people's scrapbooks and I didn't show mine off anymore. I tried to learn how to knit but all I could make were pot holders. Not pretty ones, either.

And cooking? It won't be the best you've had but it won't kill you either.

But, dammit, we're still special people!!
