Stylish Blogger Award!!!

I am so shocked! I found a beautiful comment on my blog from Terry...she had passed on the Stylish Blogger Award to me! I am very humbled and grateful to you! Check out her blog here.

So now I must
1) Thank the person who gave this award to me and link it back to their blog
2) Share 8 things about myself
3) Pass this award to 8 other individuals that I have recently discovered
4) Leave a comment on their blogs so that they can pass along the recognition!

Here are 8 things about myself:
-I am proud mother to a college senior - he is working on his secondary education degree.
-I live with my husband (Rich), cat (Snuggles), and spoiled wiener dog (Lily). Truth be known, Lily runs the house.
-I love to go camping - we camp 2 weeks on/1 week off all summer long - and I can't wait for the snow to go away!
-I LOVE being Kindergarten teacher at my "real job", but also LOVE my job as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator! How lucky can I be to love both of my jobs?
-I'm an avid reader and always have my Kindle at my side - I slip it in my purse every morning so I have reading material if I need to wait anywhere.
-I work very hard to be organized, but you couldn't tell it if you walked into my craft room!
-I love my favorite TV shows - American Idol, Vampire Diaries, Young and the Restless (I record it every day because I'm in school), and House.
-I plan to run my Stampin' Up! business full-time when I retire in 14 years. Until then, I have to be content with part-time (although my husband often says it is like a full time job because I always want to be in my craft room).

So now I would like to share some fabulous blogs that I have found with you. Please check them out:

I received the best news this morning! Shannon Phillips, one of my downline members, promoted to Supervisor with the order she placed yesterday. Her promotion was all I needed to receive my promotion to Manager. Needless to say, we are both doing a happy dance!

I quickly stamped a handmade card to send out to congratulate her. I hope she doesn't check my blog before this little gem arrives in her mailbox.
