Blog Award: Honest Scrap

Thank you to Kristin @ Discover:Interior Design for honoring me with the Honest Scrap award.  I had a hard time coming up with ten things, but it was fun to go through the process!

Here are the rules I must follow, upon receiving this award:
  1. Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award. 
  2. Share “10 Honest Things” about myself.
  3. Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me.
  4. Tell those 7 people they’ve been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving.
10 Super-Honest Things About Me
  1. I have been called a perfectionist, not because I  do things perfectly, but because I want to do things the best I can.  Often times the realization that I can't do things perfectly paralyzes me into doing nothing at all.
  2. I have big dreams and ideas, but tend not to follow through.  See # 1.
  3. My hands and feet are always cold.  Even in the summer.
  4. I really don't like ironing, doing the dishes and putting away laundry.  Or cooking, cleaning the bathrooms and vacuuming.  Haha, I'm no Suzy Homemaker.  But I love and need a clean house to feel sane.
  5. I often wonder how I'm going to make it through another Minnesota winter.
  6. I LOVE to read.  Since childhood, I have read almost anything I can get my hands on.  These days it is mostly blogs and magazines.  But novels are the best and a great way to escape.
  7. Yoga is the best thing I have ever done for myself.
  8. I feel the most productive when I am stressed.  I need a deadline.
  9. I love the feeling of accomplishment after I complete a DIY project.  I secretly wish I was a handyman like my dad who knows how to fix everything!
  10. I appreciate that my parents took the time to teach me how to do things for myself instead of just doing things for me all the time.  Because of that, I can cook, do basic maintenance on my car, fix minor things around the house and have a sense of competence trying a new DIY task that I've never done before.
Here are seven amazing bloggers I've chosen to participate, whose blogs I enjoy reading everyday!


  1. Oh, how kind ! I just love little presents like blog awards! I am very grateful.


  2. Hey thanks for the award, Katie!!! I'm so excited to do my 10 things :)


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to drop me a line!
