Awarding Meme

Here's how the Honest Scrap Award works:

I must thank the person who gave me the award and list their blog and link it.

I must list 10 honest things about myself.

I must put a copy of The Honest Scrap Logo on my blog.

I must select at least 7 other worthy bloggers & list their links.

I must notify the bloggers of the award and hopefully they will follow the above requirements.

Lord knows I love to be like a wild buffalo and follow the herd, so let me see...thank you to the lovely Mrs. Dragon for giving me this fine award.

10 honest things. I can do that. But, like Amanda, I am curious about the origin of this award. Honest Scrap? That makes me think I have to write honest things about my scrapbooking habits. Wouldn't that be scintillating reading? Probably not. So. Here are 10 honest things that you probably didn't want to know!

  1. I am a mosquito magnet. Honestly. They love me. I must be very sweet. Also? I react somewhat dramatically to mosquito bites. My bites swell to quarter and half-dollar size. When I was on vacation, one bit me on my right butt cheek. Not fun Friends, not fun at all.

  2. I laugh heartily at the wipeouts on Wipeout. Yes. I do. Judge me if you will.

  3. I'm not that great of a mother. I'm lazy. I yell too often. I hope that the moments that I do shine as a mother with sustain my children more than my failings will bring me down.

  4. I like to be depressing on my blog.

  5. I take a lot of teasing about Twitter but much good has come to me from it.

  6. No matter how many sales I make in my etsy shop I think more people should be buying. It's very much just a hobby shop for me, but I always think my work is fabulous and should have tons of buyers. Honestly, I do great work! ;)

  7. If the bat from a few weeks ago appears again I will go slightly batty.

  8. Some of my favorite things include manicures and pedicures. I do not get them often, but I enjoy both immensely.

  9. The week I spend "up north" with my family is one of the best, if not the absolute best, of the entire year.

  10. I cannot imagine a better life. I am blessed and I know it. I still yell and complain and am unpleasant to be around, but I know that this is truly what life is about.


  1. Creative Thoughts
  2. Growing a Pair
  3. Mayberry Mom
  4. Tropic of Mom
  5. Calculated Spontaneity
  6. House of Revelry
  7. You, if you want to do it!

The problem with me doing these kinds of memes is that many of the bloggers I read don't do memes at all, or they are seldom posting anymore. So, while I've tagged these wonderful people, I don't really expect anyone to do it because they are all so busy!

What kind of teasing do you get about Twitter? Does it have anything to do with the fact that EVERY time I go there you're on there too? (and I only go there about once a week at most) Cause I could see someone teasing you about that.

I will totally do this meme! Thanks for nominating me! I love the logo, too. So cool!

What's funny is when I saw that sign, I thought of Kate! (House of Revelry Kate!)

Thank you for the award!

That's a fun one. The mosquitoes...I feel your pain. I'm a fellow magnet. And, manicures and pedicures...I think heaven will have a beauty salon and I'll live in it. However, here on earth, I rarely get the luxury. :(

I somehow missed this on my reader! Thanks for playing! : )

I feel you on the mosquito bites. I had something bite me a couple of days ago and the red area was the size of an egg. A bit larger really. I would not want that on my rear!
