My First Award

I was recently given a Versatile Blogger Award, twice, first by Linda at Olde Baggs 'n Stuft Shirts and then by Mina at Green Witch with Sprinkles. I have to tell you I had no idea of what to do about it. Although I felt honored and totally surprised by receiving the award I really didn’t have a clue as to how to respond. As a fairly newbie when it comes to blogging I needed help with how to proceed and Linda was kind enough to offer to hold my hand, figuratively, along the way so here goes.
The original rules....just so you know and in case you want to follow them, were tell everyone 7 things about yourself and then pass this award along to 15 other bloggie friends that you find to be very versatile in their blogging life.  I’ve never been very good at following rules so I won’t even try to do so now but will muddle through it my way.

7 things you may or may not want to know about me:

1. I have two younger sisters who are my best friends.

2. I have been 24 years old for the past 42 years and was 13 years old for a very long time
 before that. Age is just a state of mind.

3. Although I’m an artist to my core, I’ve spent most of my life being a techy and am
 better at writing a program for a CNC controller than I am at writing a piece for my blog.

4. I would have chosen, “Off My Rocker” for my blog name but my sister beat me to it and
 I felt, “Just Plain Nuts” wasn’t descriptive enough.

5. I believe in magic.

6. I’d love to live in Madrid or Tuscany as both places appear so beautiful and full of magic and poetry.

7. Christmas is my favorite holiday and I have always loved Santa.

I would like to award the Versatile Blogger Award to the following bloggers:

Crystal from Crystal Clear

Heather from Rose Hill Designs

Geralyn from Sprinkled Blessings Studios

Joyce from The Bears Blog

Maggie from Off My Rocker

Kristin from Kristin Dudish

Jan from Laughing Dog Arts

Josie from Hey! It’s Dark in Here

Carolee from Musings from Behind the Easel

Rona from New Challenges

Those of you who I have tagged may do anything you wish with the award just know that I have found your blogs wonderful places to visit and feel you are worthy of the award. I would have also tagged Mina and Linda with the award but am biding my time. I'm sure a way to show them my appreciation will some day present itself.

Thank you for stopping by.

Hot diggidy dog....lookie what you did darling girl...and you did it. Now you've moved into the world of I know too much and folks are gonna hold me accountable.
Very interesting things to find out about you. I swore when I was 13 I would never forget what it felt like to be that age......and cursed myself..still have those feelings. And I too have gotten stuck at an age...oh probably about 35..and the darnedest thing keeps happening....some old lady shows up every morning in the mirror.
I'm glad this gave you a challenge and let us find out more about the wonderfulness of you.
The Olde Bagg, Linda
pssssssst. you dun good.
