I got my first award. YEAH Heather from Vanillahevn sent me this award today. She left me a comment and told me she had something for me. What a surprise it was. Thank you Heather for making me a happy person today. I read Heather's profile, and discovered though we are worlds apart, that her and I think alike. She just used the right words. I was talking to my friend Wanda, and I told her that I didn't really know who Shelia was anymore. I told her that to begin with I was some one's daughter, then some one's wife, then I was some one's mother, then some one's grandmother. And all these things have made me who I am today, and I am so thankful for each of these. But I still hadn't found Shelia. Wanda told me "Well you are now Shelia the one in the blog". Then Heather said in her profile that "she started the blog up with the intention of setting the inner fear free and show the world what I can do." Heather, I want to join you in that plan. I have never been self assured, never confident, that I could do anything as good as anyone else, always timid to try, afraid it wouldn't be good enough. But with the blogging and paper crafting, I have found a new person inside me, and so many many friends, that I have never even seen or talked too. By going to every one's blog it has showed me that there is no right or wrong way to do these projects, just do what makes you happy and what feels good. There will always be someone to criticize me, but more often, there will be compliments. Everyone has a different style, and there is no right or wrongs. Thanks Heather for the award, Wanda, for telling me where to find myself and Pat for urging me on, and making me see that I can do something. Also thanks to my followers. Now here is my award.

Now I am suppose to choose more people to share this with. Since Pat has already received it I will choose another in her place.

Wonderful award!!! So happy we "talked" from across the street for all the years we got to know each other!! It has been a blessing for me.

You are most welcome Shelia :)

I am so glad I made you smile and it is well deserved. Tell you a little secret - I was agoraphobic for 12 years - my only escape was through writing and craft!!

Keep believing in yourself and when you are feeling blue look at the award and remember how many people appreciate you :)

Have a wonderful day !!
