A Little Bit of Everything

What a surprise to find out that I am featured on Today's Creative Blog! I'm stunned. Oh, the pressure! I'll do my best to be worthy of the recommendation. It's just me. Trying to live up to my potential.

Thanks abundantly, Kim!


I've posted new pictures over at Poet's Garden Girl. Wanna see?


Have you seen the Valentine's that my friend, Carole, at Thoughts of Home created? Aren't they beautiful?

Kambria has chosen a spot for beauty. Have you?

A big 'thank you' to Jennefer at Smooth Stones Academy for awarding me with the 'Blogging with a Purpose' award! I'm going to have to do a bit of checking into who has received the award and who has not.

1. Awarded parties must nominate five people who have not received the award.
2. The blogs that receive the award must serve some purpose.
3. In their post about the award they need to link back to
this entry.
4. Awarded parties must post the award banner on their site. The banner must remain linked to this site.


Kevin at Encyclopedia Kevinannica has tagged me with a 7 Facts About Me meme. I recently participated, but thought I could probably come up with 7 more.

1. Link to the person that tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself.
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.

So, in no particular order...

1. My father built a little log cabin for me and my sisters to use as a play house. We spent a large portion of our summers playing in and around the cabin. Many nights we slept in the loft.

2. I learned how to drive an old tractor at a very young age while my dad bucked hay onto a trailer. As soon as my little sister could drive, I was ‘promoted’ to help dad buck hay. My older sister and I then bucked hay every summer. I was a pro at backing a trailer loaded with hay into the barn.

3. I have never ridden an ATV, hang glider, snow mobile, or camel. I have been on a jet ski, riding lawn mower, and an elephant.

4. The most ridiculous TV show I’ve ever been addicted to: Renegade with Lorenzo Lamas.

5. (Because I have to copy Kevin:) Our boys all have L names with four letters (Levi, Luke, and Leif). Each of them was named after a president or statesman (Jefferson, Monroe, and Benjamin (Franklin)), a family member (Levi, Benjamin, and Monroe), and a person in the Bible (Levi, Luke, and Benjamin). I'll be in trouble if we have any more boys. Or girls, for that matter, but I would have loved to use the name Lucy-Collette Adelaide. Incidentally, I didn't originally intend to name all of my children using the same first initial.

6. When I was 17, my family took a 6-week driving tour of the U.S. in a motorhome. We visited at least 36 states.

7. If I could spend a day with anyone from the 20th century, I would choose C. S. Lewis.

If you would like to participate, consider yourself tagged!

Thanks for the plug - for my one creative stint of the year! :)

Unlike you, I grew up in the city, but we had a double lot and my architect dad built a two story playhouse for us in the backyard. We had many a sleepover outside on summer nights in our little house. Your cabin story brought back fond memories...

I love TCB and you definately deserve to be featured! And I had to laugh # 4 on your meme. Yeah I was addicted to that show for awhile only for the *eye candy* but after awhile THAT didn't EVEN help the plot or the cheesiness of the show!HEHE!

I found your blog through TCB this morning. What a beautiful home you have! I love the silhouettes! I have been lucky to have had all my children's done over the years, but I am going to try your way, too.

Would you mind sharing the paint colors you used throughout your home? They are gorgeous.

Congratulations, and I love your blog. Your photos are phenomenal. And your family pic is particularly sweet. You must either be very organized, very energetic, or just plan creative + all the above!
