Tags and Awards!

It's time for me to do a post on the Awards and tags I've received....here goes....

I've been tagged by Heather - Andrea and Kim - to - Open the folder "my pictures". In the 6th folder, take the 6th picture and post it on your blog. Write something about the picture.

This photo was taken in June....Chewbacca (Toy Shihtzu)...is my son's dog....Buddy is ours (Bichon/Shihtzu)...and Buster ( Maltese/Shihtzu) belongs to one of my daughters. Buster looks a little evil here...but honestly he's really adorable....it's just a bad hair day or something..lol. Anyway they have all come over to play....and it must be a rainy day....because that yellow towel on the floor is for wet paws.

I have received Awards from many Kind and Talented ladies! I apologize if I have forgot anyone....All these ladies have Fabulous Blogs....you can click on there names to enjoy them. ......................Maria Jesus - Maria Jesus - Viv -
Sue - Mel - Jilly -

Zoe - Risa - Jacqueline - Karen - Donalda - Mel - Jilly - Joey - Jo - Donalda - and the rules to accepting my award are as follows:A) first list 10 honest things about yourself - and make it interesting, even if you have to dig deep!

1. I love to color...I have since I was a child. My mother use to buy me these very small coloring books...They were only around 5x5 inches....around the size of a child's reading book. I use to love these little books and wouldn't allow anyone else to color in them...lol. I still love to look at coloring books....and love the smell of good quality wax crayons.

2. I love any kind med for coloring.....I think I'm kind of addicted to trying everything...I've used oils, acrylics, water colors....pencils....any new thing comes along and I'm always itching to try it!!

3. I dislike when people cut other people off when they are talking...it doesn't matter who it is....I think it is Rude!!

4. Although I can color my images quickly ....when it comes to making a card ...it takes me forever.. I take way too long choosing my papers...etc...

5. I don't like shopping when it the stores are crowded.

6. I am not crazy about pineapple on my pizza ...but put up with it because my family likes it.

7. I can't stand when people drink out of milk cartons......What?...too lazy to get a glass?

8. I hate waking up to dirty dishes. I just don't like seeing them..especially in the morning..being in the dishwasher is fine though

9. Sometimes it seems like this world is being taken over by junk mail and paper flyer's. I hate seeing them lying around all over...especially on the kitchen table!!

10. I use to smoke....I loved smoking .....but I gave it up in around 1988...and now....I'm like a Militant non-smoker...lol.

I'm passing this along to everyone....

Lim - Andrea - Behsan - Rosalien - Camilla - Amy - Ruby - You have to write down five things you are addicted to. 1. stamps.... 2 anything paper crafts..... 3. computer.....4. coffee......5. ice cream

Thank You All for these Wonderful Awards!! I am so pleased and honored that you have all thought of me...and I passing them right back to you lovely people...and to everyone that visits this blog!!
Have a Great Day Everyone!!

I love the pictures of your doggies! I have two Shih-tzus, you have probably seen them on my blog. Raisin and Muffin. They are such a joy! Thanks for sharing yours with us! Congrats on your awards!

Andrea said...

Hey girl! These pups are adorable! My little doll is 3/4 shihtzu and 1/4 bishon. Her mom was bishon. I LOVE her! :) So, I see my name here, am I supposed to do the one with 5 things??:) I think so, I will have to get to it!

Maria said...

Wow, you received lots of awards!! All well deserved.

I love all sorts of coloring medium too but I tend to stick to one that is closest to me to use and right now, it's my Copic Markers. If I don't see it, I don't use it.

Honestly. . .I'm a random designer paper picker. I just choose whatever matches my image color!! LOL! It does make the process of making a card much faster. At one time to help me not to be picky, I would close my eyes, and whatever my hand landed on, I'll use. Try it out. . it's sort of fun!!

Thanks for sharing all the honest things about yourself. It was fun reading it.

Risa Malieta W. said...

Congratulations on all of your awards Ila. You are very deserving and admired by us ladies in blogland. *smile*
Thanks for sharing the pictures of your extended family. I bet when Buddy and his cousins are together, it is a riot at your house. *lol*
I also enjoyed reading your honest facts. I hate to wake up to dirty dishes also...yuk!!!
I also loved to color as a child. It was very important for me to stay in the lines and make my pictures look pretty. It's funny that small things like coloring with crayons could lead to something much bigger down the road. Oh well...thanks for sharing and have a great day!
hugs
Risa:)

great awards - love those facts about you. definitely share the love of coloring with you. I always had the hardest time deciding which page to color, couldn't narrow it doen! lately my cards are taking more time than they used to too - congratulations on quitting smoking! my mom died of Lung Cancer in '96 so I despise it - that addiction robbed me of having my mom around!
