The Verstile Blogger Award-My first blog Award

I can't believe it! My blog is barely a month old and I have received my first blog award-The Versatile Blogger Ward, I have over 32 followers and over 1100 visits! WOWOW! I thought it would be months before I even had 10 followers or 500 hits! Thank you to all of you for joining me on my artistic journey!

And a very special thank you to Tonia at Pigtails and Papertrails for giving me this award. I am so honored! Here are the rules for this award:1. Thank the person who sent it to you!

2. Tell us 7 things about yourself

3. Reward this to 15 bloggers

Seven things about Me:

1. I will be turning 50 next month! How did that happen! LOL

2. In the fall I will have 2 kids in college-both freshmen.

3. My secret dream is to one day own a cabin on the lake.

4. I have won the highest award in teaching-The Presidential Award for Excellence in Science and Mathematics Teaching. (It included a trip to the White House-what an experience!)

5. My special needs students performed with John Denver at the first Nobel Green Prizes as part of Kids Saving the Earth receiving a Noble Green Prize. (They won an international competition with a music video they did to win the honor.The judges declared their entry the most artistic!)

6. I started scrapbooking after a heart attack caused by the Behcets. I wanted my kids to know my story in case I died. It has become the greatest therapy in the world. Before my heart attack I had NO artistic ability. I HATED ART classes. Now I love art:)

7. My greatest joys in my life are my two kids.I thank them for being my sons every day. I also thank God for the blessings they are. I am indeed one blessed Mom.
