The story goes that this blog award has the purpose of bringing to light bloggers who are creative, make wonderful creations, but have less than 300 followers. And the rules ask that you...
1. Thank the person who sent you this award.
2. List 7 things about yourself.
3. Send this to 15 bloggers
1.1 - Thank you so much Leeann from Leearts for picking me for this award! I am so stoked to receive it and very honored. Leeann is a sweet gal who happened to win some candy on my blog a while back. I'd appreciate it if you'd all go check out her blog. It's worth your time, I promise! :0)
2.1 - I have a lot in common with Leeann! If you read her blog there are several quirks that we share such as not being able to cook or craft unless the area has been tidied or cleaned up. I always clean up my workspace for the next morning and my hubby thinks I'm crazy for doing so. He says, what's the point? It'll just get messed up anyways and I counter that argument by letting him know how much time it saves to have all your items back where they're supposed to be instead of piled a mile high and having to dig through them the next day. Wouldn't you agree? :0)
2.2 - I am a workaholic....er, I used to be. Before I had fibro I had two jobs here in Fort Collins, but before I moved I had 4 part time jobs and one full time job. I can't sit still so having fibro is extremely difficult for me because you are not supposed to overdo it and not supposed to over work yourself. It's taking me forever to master the art of relaxing!
2.3 - When I am "relaxing" I do the following all at once... watch tv, /work on the Internet, read either a book or magazine, eat, and if I'm lucky, craft. All at the same time! As I mentioned, I do not like to relax.
2.4 - I have horrible insomnia and have had it off and on for years
2.5 - I have so many ambitions and business ideas that I can't seem to get to them quick enough! I am very ambitious and love to take on anything I can. I believe I'm here to help other people in many other ways, especially when it comes to helping them learn about fibromyalgia. I love to share what all I've learned.
2.6 - I really want to work for a magazine, write a book (or several) and be published in one of the craft magazines. :0) Those are goals I've had my whole life. If anyone can help me with those, please let me know! Even just a nod in my direction would be so helpful.
2.7 - I always wanted to be a rockstar. Hence the nickname and username. LOL (AmyJRockstar) and I was going to school online through the Academy of Art University in San Francisco for a BA of fine arts in Fashion Design. I loved it soooooooo much, but then I got ill and haven't been able to go back. I channel my creativity in other ways now and really, I'm very happy with that. :0)
Phew! Hope I didn't bore you all to death with that info. Thanks for bearing with me!
3. Now I have to choose 15 blogs to receive this award! That's a lot of blogs. I will post as soon as I have them all figured out. :o) It might take me a day or two but I have a few in mind already!
Thanks again Leeann for choosing me and thanks to all my lovely followers for all of your support and encouragement with this blog.
XO ~ Amy Jo
