I've been given an award by:
I'm honored! Sheepishly grinning, red cheeks in embarassment, slight shy head tilt, and "aw shucks, thanks".

So without further ado, I accept this award by doing the following:

1) Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award.
2) Share "ten honest things" about myself.
3) Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me
4) Tell those 7 people that they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving it.

Thank you Katidids!

In all honesty:

1-I am an introvert, thus the blog and email. I don't do well at chit chat face to face with people that aren't very close. I usually wind up inserting my foot in my mouth. The blog and email have delete keys.
2-I don't play nice when it comes to my family. I don't share well and the green eyed monster rears it's ugly head too often. I can say all I want about their supposed faults but no one else can. And you step on 'em and you're toast.
3-I tend to "over think" things, as my son (in law) so lovingly (I'm sure it was lovingly) put it. I dwell and I vent and my husband, bless him, is where I blow the steam, or my daughter. Sorry to both of them except they both take me to task if it goes on too long.
4-I don't accept that life isn't fair very well.
5-I spend too much money that my husband works too hard for.
6-I don't put my husband first all of the time.
7-I hate to shop except in yarn stores, book stores, or fabric stores.
8-I don't like to leave home.
9-I don't practice hospitality, except when forced by my husband and I'm always glad I did but I sweat it out for days before the event.10-I'm usually late because I make a list of must get dones that take longer than I allot for or I get sidetracked...on ravelry or blogs or facebook!
I don't sound like a very nice person do I? The upside is we all have our foibles and only through my faith in Jesus Christ do I have any hope of turning these from negatives to positives.

Now for 7 others to share honestly:
I gotta work on this list!

  1. Now I lknow why we get along! I STILL have the package for S here... You wrote everything I did not! I have foot-in-mouth disease so bad! I would stay home every day if I do for a week or so at a time..on line & e-mail are soooo much easier than embarrassing myself face to face! Hmmmm possibly we stay home to much?
