Weirdo Wins Award

I guess my son waking me up at 4:30 this morning wasn’t all bad since I logged on to see that Amy Leavell from Pretty Little Presents had nominated my blog for the Kreativ Blogger Award.  Thank you so much, Amy.  I have been doing this for such a short time; I am still flattered that anybody even reads this blog.
Okay, rule time:
~thank the person who nominated me for the award
~copy the logo and place it on my blog
~link to the person who nominated me
~list 7 things people may not know about me
~nominate 7 creative bloggers
~post their links
~leave a comment on each
Some of my faves, in no particular order:
1.  Matsutake  Wicked cute projects and majorly funny writing

2.  How to… do something  –  Great projects for little ones

3.  My Little Gems – Famous for her car cozies, but she proves she is NOT a one-trick pony with her other fantastic ideas

4.  Domestically Speaking – Tons of beautiful home decor projects, and she shares my love of using the dollar store for materials

5.  Thrifty Living – I love keeping up with her progess as she revamps a beautiful farm home using some fab thrift store finds

6.  My Frugal Family – Tips on saving money, frugal crafts, and giveaways to help us remove the excess and live frugally

7.  Obsessively Stitching – I suck at sewing, but if I was good at it I would make every project she has on her blog
Things you might not know about me:

1.  I am an English geek.  I enjoy alphabetizing my DVDs, reading the classics and diagramming sentences.  Don’t judge me.

2.  I am an ichthyophobe.  I am afraid of fish.  As in, I will start to cry if I have to get too close to one.  No, I have never been traumatized by a fish.  Yes, I know it’s irrational.  No, I have no plans to “face my fear” ever.  Ever.

3.  I have lived in 5 states in the past 5 years.  I may or may not be a gypsy.

4.  My dog is named after a dead comedian, my mom, and a Veggie Tales song. In that order.

5.  I  don’t like to touch Nature. I like to look at it, but I don’t want it on me.  I’m what you might call “indoorsy.”

6.  I have small hands and feet. But I don’t smell like cabbage. At least I don’t think so.

7.  My name is Jessica, and I am addicted to television.  I currently have 11 shows set to record all new episodes, and I keep up with all of them.  That number will go up in January when more shows come back.
So, now that you all know how big of a weirdo I am, you can remove yourself from my Followers list.  No hard feelings.  😛
Thanks again, Amy, for the nomination.  Now, back to the coffee.  4:30 AM does not look good on me.

    Thanks so much – you've put a big smile on my face. It's been a down day.I'm glad to know that you are enjoying my little blog and have inspired me to get my butt in gear and start posting more.

    I like your list. By the way, based on part of your number 1 (alphabetizing your DVDs), it sounds like you may also be a library geek in addition to an English geek. I not only alphabetize my books and DVDs and music CDs, I catalog them all on my computer, to an obsessive level of detail. 😉

    Thank you so much for nominating me, Jessica! I have enjoyed your blog a lot, and as I was looking through my blog list, I nominated you as well (not sure if that's allowed) because I really enjoy this blog a lot!HeatherMy Frugal Family
