Overdue Blog Awards!

Within the past two weeks I have received three blog awards and have yet to pass them on.. I feel terrible. Things have been crazy and I've been focusing on creating cards and finishing up my huge thank you note project that I just haven't had the time to pass on all the awards, so I'm going to do it all in one large post.

The first award I received was The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award, given to me by Angela at Binge Crafter.  
I originally posted about receiving my first award but did not pass it on within that post. I'm supposed to pass it on to seven other bloggers and say seven things about myself.

1.) I just started college and plan on majoring in Elementary Education with a Spanish endorsement so that I can teach elementary school, something I have wanted to do my entire life.
2.) I work at the local public library and could not ask for a better job, seeing that I love to read and I work with some truly amazing people.
3.) I love to learn and take pride in my academic achievements.
4.) I am really indecisive and have a hard time choosing favorites or picking what to do. 
5.) I'm scared of frogs.
6.) One thing I want to do before I die is go to Alaska and see the Northern Lights. 
7.) I love the rain.

Here are seven great bloggers not in any particular order that you should check out:

Arlene @ Water Dots, her cards are so adorable and she just made an awesome gift card set!
Channa @ Crafts & Pieces, her layouts and cards are so beautiful
Abbey @ 2nd Hand Stamps, all of her cards are so lovely
Becky @ Scrappin Becky B, an amazing photographer and crafter
Sheena @ Sheena's Scrap Corner, check out her super cute and adorable layouts
Karen @ Crafted With Love By Karen, her cards are so cute and detailed
Kristy @Craftin' On My Door, her layouts are absolutely gorgeous

The second award that I one was the Stinkin' Cute Blog Award, given to me by Amy at Red Headed Crafter.

Here are three fantastic bloggers that I am giving this award to:

Larelyn @ Handmade From The Heart, an amazing crafter who always has stunning creations
Cathy @ Cathy Can't Help Herself, her layouts are so gorgeous and elegant
Katie @ Crafting With Katie, check out her super adorable felt card

And the most recent award I've received is the Best Friend Blogger Award given to me by Pam at Crafty Cards 4 U 2.

Here are five creative bloggers that I am passing this award on to:

Tracey @ Garden of Grace, she is an amazing crafter and was so supportive as my first follower
Rexann @ I Be Circled, has wonderful creations and links to many great giveaways
Georgiana @ Carson's Creations, check out her super cute 'I Love Summer' card
Sonia @ Cards, Crafts and Kids Projects, she is so encouraging and makes beautiful creations
Deneen @ A Path of Paper, her cards are so unique and inspirational
