My First Blog Award!

Yesterday, I received the Lemonade award from Lora (Notes From The Scrapbook Lady)-which was my first blog award!It was a nice surprise, that cheered me up a bit! Life around here has been really hectic, since my daughter's birthday party was Sunday, and our air conditioning went out on Saturday night. In the 90 degree+ Tennessee heat, no less. We found out yesterday we have to replace the air compressor (blech!expensive!)-and of course the repair man had to wait till today or Wednesday for a part.Hopefully he can get it and fix it today, but I am getting used to the heat. Can you imagine how it used to be before they invented air conditioning? Let me tell you, my kids have not been happy campers! But at least they/we can go swim if we get too hot! But, anyway, back to the award! Lor had some very sweet things to say about me, which I appreciate very much! Go check out her blog, she's got lots of great svg file freebies!
Here are the rules for this award:

There are sooo many awesome blogs out there(and some of the ones I frequent just got this award), but here are a few of my favorites:
1.The Frugal Crafter Lindsay is one talented chick, with lots of money saving ideas on her blog, svg ,digistamp,and digi scrapping freebies. One of my favorite things that I learned from her blog is how to make your own shimmer spray. I am proud to be a member of her digistamp design team. and I am learning new tricks from the other DT members all the time! Head over to her blog and you are sure to be inspired!
2.Vendibles Blog Eleanor has lots of awesome free svg files (I think she's up to about 70!) One of my favorites is her cherry blossom frame that is one of the most recently uploaded files to her blog. It's so pretty! Stop by and see all of her lovely files!
3.Going Buggy If you haven't seen this blog, and you are a card maker or Cricut owner, you are missing out! Enfys has tons and tons of gorgeous cards, and what she does with her Cricut and Cuttlebug is simply inspiring!
4.Denise's Scrapbooking Room Denise has sooo many free svg files (and some more uber-cute ones for sale). If you have SCAL, you definantly need to go by her blog and work your way through the old posts!
5.All Things Crafty And Delicious-I just recently discovered Melinda's blog, and she is a girl after my own heart! She loves to cook and shares her recipes, and just recently started sharing a free weekly svg file. Drop by and leave her a comment!
As I said before, there are so many more great blogs out there, this is just a very small portion!
