Some Fun Things For The Day

I have some really fun things to share with you today that have been shared with me and I want a chance to give back so here is my way of doing it. The first thing to share is the "Pay It Forward Challenge". I got involved in this yesterday through my friend Marlene's blog. Here is how it works: If you're one of the first five to respond to this post you get a gift created by the blog owner that would be "Me". Now for the PAY IT FORWARD rules:

Here's the RULES:

1. The gift will be a mystery of my choice, created especially for the recipient.

2. I have one year to get all five gifts made, but I'm sure it won't take me that long. LOL!!!

3. If you're one of the five, you must make a post in your blog offering to make a gift for five people, spreading the joy of creation.

4. When you receive your gift, you should make a post on your blog and show everyone inspiring others to follow the chain and participate.

So if you think you want to spread the joy of creating please sign up and pay it forward.

The second order of sharing is another blog award I received today, this one is from Sue.

Sue makes the best ATC's and has some really cute projects on her blog you must go by and see her. Thank you so much Sue for sharing this award with me and now for my very favorite part giving it to some very deserving crafters. So I would like to give this award to:

Norma Jean

Now ladies here are the rules for sharing this with others:

1-Comment on this blog.
2-Cut and paste the award logo and use it in your own blog.
3-Nominate 5 blogs you feel show great attitude and gratitude.
4-Link to your nominees within your blog post.
5-Comment on their blogs to let them know they’ve received the award.
6-Link back to the person who gave you the award to show your appreciation.

The last order of sharing for this day is my new motorcycle helmet that my dear husband gave to me this weekend. There is a little story to go with this so bear with me. I have for many years had a very big dislike and fear of motorcycles the reason being I have worked in the Orthopedic Surgery field for almost 15 years and I have seen many a messed up person and also my dear husband almost lost his life on a motorcycle in 2005, so now you see why I have the dislike. Well the past two weekends have changed my view a little, I felt really bad every weekend when my hubby would ask me to go riding with him and his friends and their wives so I decided to give it a try, well I totally loved it. I even went to Galveston last weekend on the motorcycle, so my hubby got me a new helmet for the Galveston trip and here she is.

You should see the looks I get in this helmet it is funny. I love it though. It has the most beautiful colors and flourishes, but at the same time says I am tough. LOL!!!

I hope today finds you all doing well thanks for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!
