I am so honored! I have been nominated by Erin at Crafter Biggers for The Versatile Blogger Award!
I can hardly believe it! I've been blogging for less than three months and I couldn't be more excited about this. Blogging has helped me in so many ways. It's gotten me off the couch, out of my funk, and my house is reaping the benefits.
Here are the requirements for the award...1. Thank the blogger who nominated you for the award
2. Include a link to their blog in you post, as well as the award image
3. Give 7 random facts about yourself
4. Nominate 15 other deserving bloggers for the award
5. Include links to the nominated bloggers' sites
6. Let the other bloggers know that they have been nominated for the award.
7 Randoms facts about Carolyn at My Life is a Nutshell and I'm the Nut:
1. I am a retired deputy sheriff from Seattle, Washington
2. I moved to Phoenix Arizona seven years ago to get out of the rain (refer to fact #1)
3. I inherited the thrifting gene from my mother but didn't know this until I was 54 years old.
4. I love cats and have three living with me IN the house and one feral cat outside.
5. I have too many favorite decorating styles and colors so my house is in a constant identity crisis.
6. Two years ago I was violently attacked by a dog and on the fear scale that far outweighed the two times I've been shot at.
7. I was a hair stylist for seven years before I was in law enforcement.
I want to thank Erin for this nomination. It was such a welcome surprise.
