OMG my first Blogger Award!! (And a contest!)

How exciting! Jammie from http://www.theneatthingsinlife.com/ sent me this award, this is what she said about me:
5. Czianya @ Czny Blog Design she did a great job on my blog. I have made some changes but I love it all.

Now it does come with some rules that must be followed upon receiving this award:

* Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award
* Share 10 honest things about myself
* Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and or design, or those who have encouraged me.
* Tell those 7 people they've been awarded Honest Scrap and inform them of these guidelines in receiving.

So now for my 10 honest things:
  1. I got married at 17, and even though I am young I don't regret marrying my husband, we have a lot of ups and downs but I love him.
  2. I love my kiddoes, although sometimes I am very impatient and i feel like a bad mom.
  3. Girls scare me, my daughter is only 8months old and I dread the day she grows up.
  4. My son is the most hyperactive kid I have ever met, I am 23 years old and I feel I have no energy for him.
  5. I learned how to HTML and CSS with the help of a fellow blogger and lots and lots of tutorials.
  6. I have a lot more to learn about HTML, CSS, XHTML, and whatever other web coding stuff but I like doing it so I will eventually learn it.
  7. I love to design wether its digital scrapbooking, blogs, or invitations/cards/announcements.
  8. I love people's reaction when I have made something for them, it makes what I do more rewarding
  9. Both my Hubby and I are unemployed, and it sucks, but we can make it through this.
  10. My dream is to do this fulltime, I can literally stay on the computer all day just drawing, and coding.
And now to present this award to some awesome bloggers:
  1. Ryann from A Working Blogging Mommy ; I met her at a mommy forum (and designed her blog) and she is just an awesome person!
  2. Paige from The Nurse Mommy; I also met her at the mommy forum (and yes designed her blog as well) and Paige is one of the sweetest people!
  3. Jackie from Monkey Mayhem; She is also part of the mommy forum (yes blog designed by me) she is so into her blogging/reviewing that she inspires me to be a better blogger (yes I suck lol)
  4. Kristin from Our Ordinary Life; Also met her at the mommy forum, she's another awesome blogger, she has alot of good posts about life and other stuff.
  5. Megan from Flergalicious; I just love her digital supplies, shes one designer that makes me wish I could buy everything she makes!
  6. Amanda from Kevin and Amanda; She makes free fonts from you handwriting! Shes just awesome like that, she also makes some digital scrapbooking kits and gives tips on blog prettyfying, I have used some of her fonts and they just make my stuff look much more personal.
And finally last but not least is
    7. Michelle from Herron Studios; She's the one that taught me what I know, shes super patient with me which is nice lol. She also does cool digital scrap stuff.
