Hello Everyone,
Hope everyone is doing well. Today the wonderful and talented Deb from
The Wug's Backyard awarded me the Versatile Blogger award. At first when
I read her blog I thought why would she give me such an award but as I
read her blog I understood why. And I stole a little of her words but I know
she won't mind....LOL....
The rules of the award are, first don't forget to take your award! Then the
rules say that I'm supposed to share with you 7 random facts about myself,
and then pass the award on to 15 other blogs that I feel merit this honor...
So, here goes, seven random facts about me....besides the tons of random,
useless facts I've already told you in the past...whether you wanted to know
them or not!! LOL
1 I love to take pictures but i'm a little shy of showing them to anyone
In my header picture is one and below are a couple of others.Bridal
Veil Falls I took this picture in the early 80's when we lived in
Stevenson WA. The picture has gotten a little damaged over the
years. I found the negative recently I just have to get it processed
Next is a sunset that I just thought was beautiful so I had to take a
shot of it.
2 I like the outdoors but I hate getting dirty. This is more like a quirk
of mine. If i'm going sight seeing like to the falls or Crater Lake I am
there to take in all the beauty and not to get dirty. But if I'm
working in the garden that's different.
3. I am a baton twirler. I started taking lessons when I was about
twelve years old and still continue twirling the baton. It has
really changed since back then and I have managed to keep up
with all the new tricks of that trade. See picture below.
4. I love to ride Harleys' so yes I am a biker momma....LOL..... I
miss all of our riding buddies in Oregon. I have also been to a few
biker rallies. See picture below. I like to ride on the back of my
husbands harley more than driving one, and yes I can fall alseep
while riding on the back of my husbands.
5. I really don't like getting my picture taken. I have posed for a couple
friend photographers in Oregon when they were just starting out
I have one picture of myself that I really like but it's a little risque.
Believe me I am fully dressed in the picture below even though it
may seem that I am not. I'm actually wearing a tube top
6. I love to eat a lot of chicken and salads. If I did not have to fix red
red meat because my husband loves red meat I would eat chicken
every day whether it was fried or baked or just in a salad.
7. I have two tattoo's. One only my husband see's and the other is on
my ankle. The one that no one else gets to see is a tribute to my
mother where I wear it close to my heart. So now that I have shared about me I have to award this award to 15
other bloggers.
4. Blessed on the Bright Side
5. craftin and stampin
I think all these bloggers are pretty versatile.
Don't forget we start a new challenge over at Hiding In My Craft Room
tomorrow be sure to stop in. Also you have till the end of the month to
post your creation over at Lets Ink It Up
Until my next post Have a Splendid day!!!!!

Karen said...

Thank You so much!!! I love reading all about you, but the big thing that I am dying to know is what is your name? Ha ha ha ha, we have been chatting back and forth for a while now, and I still don't know your name. I have searched high and low on your blog, and I cannot find it anywhere! I am a name kind of girl, and more than anything, I would love to know your name! Thanks again I can't wait to pass this along! karen♥ PS I will be waiting for that information I guess it would be secret information, I need to know the secret! LOL

Thanks so much for awarding me and thinking of me. Will pass the badge on asap. Hugs, Marion

Maria said...

Thank you so much! I'm really touched. Loved reading all about you - I am soooo impressed that you're a biker mom! Now that is really cool, and I'm just a little envious. Fabulous photos, I love the sunset. Thanks again, I will pass it on as soon as I can.

Bye for now

Karen, So I guess you will be getting an extra tid bit about me. My name is Velma and to be totally honest about it I hate my name and to make matters worse my middle name is Enriqueta which in english it is Henrietta in some cases I go by Katie, Rita, or Reatta. Here is the other problem I have with my name. What sane mexican women would give their daughter the name Velma? Go ahead and laugh cause I know you are....LOL....So there you have it. It's not a secret anymore.

Thanks very much for thinking about me. Will be passing it on.

SnowflakeDreams1 said...

Marion you are welcome. Some of the awards were given to bloggers that I thought we needed to know a little more about especially because your work is so inspiring.

SnowflakeDreams1 said...

Maria, you are welcome. Don't be so impressed about the biker momma it's nothing to write home about...LOL.... Biker rides are long grueling and exhausting, and you can never go shopping when your on one because there is no room to put anything in to bring it home unless it has a sidecar. We do have a sidecar for it but rarely use it. Thank you for the kind words about my photos.

Mags, your welcome.

Oh, Velma! What a great post!! And what great pictures! The header photo especially is so calm and pretty!...You made me laugh out loud about loving outside, but not wanting to get dirty. It sounded like something I would do for sure! ^_^ I like looking at all of the beautiful scenery and trees and everything, but put my hands in it?!...That's another story all together!! ^_^ And who knew you were a baton twirling biker chick?!! LOL YOU GO GIRL!!! I loved the photos...and I loved getting to know you even better. :-] Yep! I knew you were versatile!

SnowflakeDreams1 said...

Deb, thank you for loving my photographs. I guess we are a little bit more alike in the beauty of the outdoors but not liking to get dirty...LOL.... There is so many more layers to me that alot of people don't know. Yes you were right about me being very versatile.
