Award & Contest

Yesterday was an amazing day! I reached 600 "Likes" on my Facebook Page and I got an award out of the clear blue! I decided that today, we'd interrupt our regularly scheduled programing to say a HUGE thank you to Lynette over at Sweet Posy Dreams for bestowing upon me the "Versatile Blogger Award"! It's nice to know that there are those who come by often enough to be entertained by my "lack of focus" which is this blog. I actually think that focus is sometimes overrated. ;-) Lynette's blog is full of interesting stories and I love that she comes by and comments here all the time.

I'm also going to have a contest to celebrate my 600th "Like" But first...
I am going to pass this award on to 15 bloggers, but before I do, I have to tell you the rules:
  1. Thank the person that nominated you, and give a shout out on your blog to them with a link to theirs.
  2. Share 7 random facts about yourself.
  3. Send the blog award to 15 other bloggers who's blog you love and appreciate, and let them know they won the award.
So now let's get to the 7 random facts about me:
1.  I am a first generation Haitian-American born in the U.S.
2.  In high school I wanted to be a Pediatrician (I think it just sounded good when asked "the" question)
3.  I will eat anything made with potatoes
4.  I love decorating and DIY projects
5.  My favorite quote is "for everything there is a time and a season under the sun..."
6.  One of my favorite books is "Go-Givers Sell More"
7.  I have a HUGE extended family that keeps me grounded

So now comes the time where I introduce you to the 15 bloggers who I think well deserve the "Versatile Blogger Award"
Valerie at Everyday Inspired
Boston Handmade Team at Boston Handmade
Vickie at Vickie Howell
Sarah at Sarah London
CurlyNikki at Curly Nikki
Sleight Girl at All Things Tangled
Melle at Melle Amade
Kathy at Weller Wishes

Contest time! To celebrate the 600th "Like" on the Facebook page I'm giving away three items, a completed Chunky Crochet Slouchy Hat and two patterns, winner's choice! Just follow the instructions below! Good luck! Thank you!
