Honest Scrap Blog Award


Thank you so much to Vynuss Vision for bestowing upon me the Honest Scrap Blog Award today!! I think these awards are so fun and a great way to get some background info on the girls who are writing the blogs I read everyday.

The rules are simple..write 10 things about yourself and then pass it on...

1. I am exhausted..I have too much on my plate and don't feel like I ever really accomplish anything. I should lock myself in my apartment until I finish my website and then after a week on the go, lock myself in again until it is perfectly straight and organized. You might never see me again!

2. I want to play the piano all the time. I used to play and memorized several amazing songs. When I was in Thomasville in January, I sat down and I couldn't remember how to play most of them! My Grandmother was a concert pianist, so the genes are there..I just need a piano to practice on.

3. One of the most fun things I have ever done was hop on a plane at the last minute to the Bahamas to sell jewelry on the set of "After the Sunset". The actors and crew were stuck there right before Christmas and I sold every piece of jewelry I brought. Not only did I get to hang out with Pierce Brosnan, Selma Hayek, Brett Ratner and Woody Harrelson, I left there with so much cash, I stuffed it in my bra at the airport, so scared that I would get caught. Thanks Joey!

4. I have a need for a to-go drink all the time. I don't know why but I love a good plastic cup with clear ice and a diet coke. I know that all the diet coke makes you thirsty, then you need another..I am aware of this but keep drinking them. (please don't email me how bad diet coke is for you...)

5. I spend a ridiculous amount of money on books. In my apartment, there are a few hundred on my shelves and I have read 95% of them. If I lend them out (rare), I keep the book jacket with a sticky note to remind me who I lent it to. I am always amazed when people buy hardback books and then pass them on to whoever wants to read them.

6. I sometimes wonder who is reading all these posts I write. I just spent the weekend with really old friends and more than one asked why I wrote a blog and who on earth would read it?

7. I was always an average student, could not retain information and was a horrible test taker but could tell you the list of movies that Gwyneth Paltrow has been in and almost anything about her from memory.

8. I am living alone for the first time in my life since last year. It is nice and peaceful but I miss living in my parent's guest house..it was so beautiful!

9. I love making jewelry. I don't have enough time to make all the things I have thought of in my head. I get notes and emails all the time from people who have received an item of mine and they want to tell me how much they love it. Those notes and emails are amazing and let me know I am on the right path.

10. Hair...I am completely obsessed with my hair and making it straight. Many years ago, I was a hair model for a salon just receiving the Yuko System, so I got the treatment for free. I left that salon with possibly the straightest hair of my life. I was speechless. I have had that treatment 6 or 7 times since..my next appointment is June 1st in Boston. I am counting the days...

Gosh, I could keep going and going..but enought about me! I will pass this award on to a few friends, I feel like most of them have already received it!

I love these awards too!! It's so much fun learning about each other. :)
Some days I feel like you and have too much on my plate- through no fault but my own.
I want a piano to practice on too... I can semi-still play Fur Elise, and Phantom of the Opera, but that's about it. I've been thinking about those weighted-key keyboards, but there's nothing better than tickling the ivory!
It's funny what people say when you tell them you have a blog. I get the same reaction. "Who reads your blog? What do you write about?" That's the fun thing about blogs, there'll always be someone who wants to read your blog... like me! :)
XOXO- Vy

Great list! I totally understand the book thing - I have stacks and stacks. Can't get enough! That's awesome about your jewelry sale on the movie set! I get the blog question from people from time to time. If they have to ask, they just don't get it!

Thanks so much for the award, Kristin! I am afraid I cannot come up with near as many interesting facts as you have. Have a super weekend! xo
