I received a special surprise a few days ago. My online friend, Rhonda of Roban Studios awarded me the Stylish Blogger Award! We have recently been involved in the 2011 Project 365 together, and I adore her art! You must check out her blog … and don’t forget to look for the continuing story of Wormy and Wormelia http://robanstudio.blogspot.com/.
As part of the award, there are duties I must fulfill. The rules are as such:
Thank the person who gave the award, and link back to their blog.
Share 8 things about yourself
Pass this award onto 8 Individuals who you have recently discovered.
Leave a comment so they can pass on their recognition.
So here are eight things about myself:
* I live in one of the most beautiful places in the country, in the northwestern corner of the Pacific Northwest, and love to photograph it.
* I am a self-taught mixed media artist, who loves learning by making a mess.
* I am a nature nut, a Habitat Steward with the National Wildlife Federation, a member of the Native Plant Society, and brand new member of the North Cascades Audubon Society.
* I married the love of my life 16 years ago, (another nature nut) and moved from a drier, warmer climate to this fairly wet sometimes chilly corner of the world, and have learned to love sweaters and light jackets and the wonderful sunshine when it comes. (It's not here today)
* I love birds, and adore watching them in the yard and at the feeders, and on my walks.
* I love getting out and digging in the dirt, growing flowers and vegetables, and native plants.
* I enjoy cooking, most of the time, and am continually tweaking recipes.
* My favorite dessert is fresh sliced strawberries over angel food cake; sometimes it can have whipped cream but it’s not necessary.
These are the blogs I've recently discovered that I would like to pass this award to:

Note to those I’ve awarded the Stylish Blogger: Please do not feel obligated to send on the award. I just wanted you to know that I enjoy your blogs and think you should have an award for it. And as far as I can tell, there are no blog award police wandering blogdom. :)
