I cannot tell you how excited I am that I won my very first award ... AND from three different amazing ladies. Thank you PinkE, EAS Creations and Barb's Bunny Hutch. It is such an honour to receive this award from these very talented and very creative ladies. You will have to visit their blogs to see exactly what I'm talking about. Here they are: http://expressionbypinke.blogspot.com/ http://eascreations.blogspot.com/ http://barbsbunnyhutch.blogspot.com/ Now the rules say that I have to mention 7 things about myself and then pass this award to another 15 amazing bloggers. So here goes: 1. I was born in Lisbon, Portugal but grew up in Durban, South Africa. 2. I will be celebrating my 25th wedding anniversary in November 2010. 3. Although I'm Portuguese, my husband is Dutch and my two wonderful children are South African - a fruit salad you say?! 4. We moved to Texas, USA 12 years ago. 5. I love to travel and I'm looking forward to our trip to Holland in July. 6. I have a very tiny family who just happens to be scattered all over the globe and I miss each and every one of them very, very much. 7. And lastly ... I firmly believe that my faith in God has helped me through some tough times in my life. Okay that is enough about me, so now I have to pass this award to other deserving bloggers. Well, after much consideration I decided to pass it along to these wonderful bloggers. You will have to visit each one of them to see all the individual and varied projects. All I can say is that you won't regret it and you will be amazed at the talent.
