Ms. Brightside Award - Thanks Terria!!


This award was given to me by Terria. Terria is one of my fellow Crafty Critters. She inspires me, so it was nice to be recognized by her. So thank you Terria for honouring me with this award to me.

Ok For this award I have to list 10 things that I love and that make me, I then leave you with 5 pieces of trivia, and pass it along to 5 of my friends so lets get started.

1. Family - first and foremost - they make me who I am.
2. Teaching - so rewarding knowing that you are making an impact on the future.
3. Scrapbooking - love creating albums so that my children will remember their childhood. I also love what it has done for my confidence, I'm proud of what I can do and without sounding conceited, I think I'm pretty good.
4. My sense of humour... sometimes it can be a little off colour - but I'm pretty good at knowing when and where it is appropriate.
5. Patience - I am a very patient person - a great trait for both my family life and my job.
6. Chocolate - trust me.. not only do I love chocolate - it makes me.. just ask my family.. a mommy without chocolate is not a happy mommy! :)
7. Penguins - love them.. have since I was 12 and they are a part of my every day life... I don't think there is anyone in my life that doesn't know about my love for penguins... I actually had to put a stop to penguin themed gifts as I had TOO many!! They still surface every once in a while... but that's okay! (Just don't tell my husband! LOL)
8. I love the Vancouver Canucks - if I ever win the lottery I am buying season tickets!
9. Thanks to my husband - and after many years of trying not to give in - I like football.. love the BC Lions and now that Carsyn is playing I have even more appreciation for the game.
Last but certainly not least.....
10. My friends, both real life and online - for without them, I wouldn't be who I am.

Trivia - I'll tell you some weird things about me haha!
1. I grew up in a small town of 1500 people - Port Alice - on the northern tip of Vancouver Island, British Columbia
2. I have an irrational fear of bananas - and until my boys arrived I couldn't even touch them. Now I can buy them - but don't ask me to touch a peeled banana - it won't happen!
3. I met my hubby online - me met "in real life" four days later and have been together ever since.
4. Grew up in the same house from birth to graduation, but, in the 20 years since I graduated from high school I have moved 15 times - UGHH!
5. I have never had a manicure, because my nails grow beautifully naturally (I never have to file them - only clip them if they get too long) - I was often accused of having fake nails - so I never polish them any more so that people can see that they are my own. I did have my nails painted for my wedding - but don't consider that a manicure.

Okay... now the 5 people I would like to pass this on to. I can't choose just 5... so I'm passing this on to all of my fellow Crafty Critters.
