Debra L. Schubert awarded me this wonderful blog award the other day over at her blog. Thank you, Deb! Her blog is Write on Target, and if you haven't been over to visit her, you really need to check it out! http://debralschubert.blogspot.com/
So, now I have the enjoyable job of nominating seven other worthy bloggers who must also follow the rest of these directions:
1) Copy the pretty picture and post it on your blog. (I can't figure out how to post the picture in the body of the post - so I've posted it on the side bar!)
2) Thank the person who gave it to you and link to their blog. (Thanks so much again, Debra!)
3) Write 7 things about yourself we don't know.
4) Choose 7 other bloggers to pass the award to.
5) Link to those 7 other bloggers.
6) Notify your 7 bloggers.
