I got an award!

Thank you Allison! I'm so excited with this award! Please check out Allison's blog at , she's doing some really great things! I'm really having too much fun with blogging my doodles that I keep waiting for the blogging police to tell me it's all just a joke, and they made all of you Ok, I am supposed to tell you 8 random things about me:

1. I CAN NOT draw a stright line.... ever. Thats why everything I draw looks a little off kilter, and I cannot bring myself to use a ruler... or a pencil.

2. I hate to wear socks... in fact if I didn't live where it snowed I probably wouldn't wear shoes either.

3. I have to have some form of chocolate every day or my family can't stand

4. I took Mandarin Chinese in high school for 3 years thinking that I'd be able to read the letters that my brother sent home from Taiwan. NOT! Now all I can remember is how to count to 10 and swear.... Oh and I remember the words that sound like swear words....

5. I used to have BIG purple hair and wear a nose ring.

6. I can't sit and watch tv without something to do... I constantly have a pen, a crochet hook, or a needle in my hand.

7. I fell out of the car when I was 4 years old, and broke my right hip, both legs, and my pelvis. I was in a body cast for 2 months.

8. I miss my mother. I lost both my parents to cancer in 2009... 7 months apart to the day... Sadly I am pushing 40, and somedays, all I want is my mother. I am however greatful for my belief that I will be with her again:)

Here's what to do next:
1) Thank the person who gave this award to you and link it back to their blog

2) Share 8 things about yourself

3) Pass this award to 8 other individuals ( I will be doing that this weekend... )

4) Leave a comment so that they can pass along the recognition!

Awesome Nikki!
You definitely deserve an award, you artwork is just incredible!
It was fun to learn more about you also.
I am so sorry about the loss of your parents. That must have been very hard, especially so close together.
It is wonderful though knowing that we will all be back together with our lost loved ones someday.
Thanks for sharing your life with us!
Take Care!

BIG purple hair and a nose ring? Are you kidding me? Now I KNOW we'd be fun (and a bit dangerous) if we lived near each other!
Oh, and pushing 40? Give me a break, you young 'un!
I know how you feel about your mom. I still have mine, but as she gets older the reality that she won't always be here with me hits me pretty hard.
Love ya', Nikki! Keep on keepin' it real, girlfriend!

Congrats on the well deserved award, Nikki!!! I loved learning more about you. I can't watch tv without doing something either. I can't even begin to imagine losing both parents so close together. You're never too old to need your mom. Big hugs to you. xxx I'm so thankful we can know we will be reunited with our loved ones someday.
