Katy at A Few More Things bestowed upon me the Honest Scrap award this week! I’m So excited. Love Katy’s enthusiasm and the fact she checks out my author interviews and leaves good comments. I’m honored and quite surprised to receive this. Thanks for the recommendation and the award.

Here are the RULES for this AWARD:
• This award is bestowed upon a fellow blogger whose blog content or design is, in the giver’s opinion, brilliant.

• When accepting this award, you must write a post about it, including the name of the person who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to the said person so everyone knows she/he is real.

• Choose a minimum of seven blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Show the blog names and links and leave a comment informing them that they were prized with the Honest Scrap award.

• List at least ten honest things about yourself. Then pass it on!


1. I am a book club leader of three book clubs. Two live and one that is on line, only by the grace of God and his helpers.

2. I’m dyslexic, diagnosed at age 26.

3. I didn’t read growing-up as a child. I tried to catch up on reading children’s books when I read them to my three children.

4. It wasn’t my idea to run book clubs. I didn’t seriously start reading for pleasure until 6 years ago, when I started working at a Christian Book Store .

5. I’m reading more books now than I have read in my whole life. I’m lovin’ it.

6. I truly love interviewing authors and hearing the fun things that happen to them along their book creations, like brainstorming, writing and the publishing process.

7. I get so excited and I really enjoy it when authors speak at book club. I see how they react in the book club environment, when talking to a group of women that have read and discussed their books before they got there. Fun!

8. I love quilts and I also love to make quilts. Hardest part for me is picking out the colors for the quilt.

9. One of my favorite children’s picture books is called The Quilt Makers Journey by Jeff Brumbeau and Gail de Marcken - Pictures in side are beautiful and I really believe in the message of this book.

10. Exercise is a necessary evil. I hate to do it but feel so much better when I’m finished. My treat is the whirlpool afterwards!
