Stylish Blogger Award

Thanks to Terrie Smiling for bestowing me this award!  Terrie likes to make felted and handmade items so go see her pretty blog.

With this award, the following applies:
Post linking back to the person that gave you the award.
Share 7 random things about yourself.
Award 15 recently discovered bloggers.
Drop them a note, and tell them about it!

7 Random things about me:

1) I am 4'11" (1.4986 meters) tall.  The runt of the litter of 6 siblings; 5 brothers and the baby, (best) sister (ever).

2) When I was 20 I was the model for a fairly famous (now) American artist.  The painting I was told, is hanging in a bank in Chicago.  It is approx. 9 feet long by 6 feet high.  I never saw it finished only a small print reproduction of it.

3) I used to be really shy when I was a young child.  Now I can talk to anyone about anything.

4) I am left handed.  Although living in a right-handed world I do allot with my right hand.  According to my mom, I would use whatever utensil that was nearest to that hand to eat, draw or color using crayons in a coloring book and until I got to school she didn't know which hand I would choose to write with.  I crochet left and knit right handed.

5) What pains me most in life is when people treat others badly.

6) Even though I was a single mom for about 7 years and it was tough and we struggled financially, it was the most favorite time of my life being a mom to my daughter and son.  Before they were 18, we moved from home to home 10x.

7) I want to live on a mini farm growing food, flowers and having a menagerie of animals by my side while staying busy making artistic creations and never having to move my home again.
