I'm Janimal, happily gainfully employed Momma to a sweet girl. Livin' it up in Atlanta with a great husband and a good job. Sometimes I make stuff and here's my spot to show it off! Life is good, so I'm sharing....

Blog Award

Thank you, thank you SewAmbitious for sending me this award! SewAmbitious has a totally groovy blog. She says she has only been sewing a short time, which is amazing because her projects are crazy cool. Honestly, she's a natural!

The rules appear to be that I have to tell you 10 random things about me.

  1. I have never tasted iced tea.

  2. I love to sing, and I suck at it. I mean, honestly, my singing voice is terrible. (I'm going to keep singing anyway!)

  3. My biggest pet peeve is when people throw their cigarette butts out their car windows. The World is not an ashtray.

  4. Wait, that's my second pet peeve. My first is bigotry.

  5. I write most of my blog posts with! lots! of! exclamations! Then I end up editing most of them out. What can I say, I feel emphatic.

  6. Ice cream trucks skeeve me out

  7. My daughter is made of 100% WIN and is fortified with AWESOME

  8. I'm not comfortable with Team Edward or Team Jacob. The characters are teenagers. So I have decided to join Team Charlie -- but he really needs to lose that mustache.

  9. Despite having the most amazing little girl on the planet, I still *feel* infertile. The trials and tribulations of the journey to motherhood are still with me. And my heart aches for every other woman yearning to complete their family.

  10. I have only told 2 real life friends about this blog. Not sure why -- I mean, I have nothing to hide. Nothing posted that I wouldn't be comfortable anyone reading or seeing. I suppose if my blog were attached to an Etsy store or I was trying to make money using AdSense or something, it would make sense for me to tell more people. I have no plans to sell any projects I make. No plans to try and make any income from this blog. But I like things as they are. I like that the people who have chosen to follow me, are following because they want to. Not to enter a giveaway or because I asked in some other way. That's cool!
Passing this award on to some other lovely bloggers....

1) Gotta give some local love to a fellow Georgia gal at Stress The Seams
2) If Haupi at Hauplight lived near me we would have to be friends. One of the few non-craft blogs I have recently fallen for.
3) Fellow Brit and hot tea drinker/addict at Filth Wizards -- I started bookmarking projects of hers to do and ended up pretty much bookmarking her whole blog!
4) Check out Kalleen At Second Street - 4 kids and still has the energy to make awesome awesome things!
5) Embellished Bayou is sharing the love down in Louisianna! She and I copied the same wreath and looks like we have some of the same fabrics in our stashes. Great minds think alike?!
6) Tot Tuesdays at Delicious Ambiguity rocks my world. But she's awesome all the other days too!
7) Lots of love to Let's Go Fly A Kite - isn't that a great name for a blog?!
8) What an eye for fabrics over at Little Lizard King - I seriously want to raid her sewing room.
9) If you don't know Sutton Grace, where ya been?! Go fall in love....
10) Last, but not least, oooooh the cakes at Texas Monkey!

That was fun! Pass it on ladies!


  1. You are so sweet!
    First - I'm with you on number ten. No one I know in real life knew my blog existed until I shared my Mother's Day tribute with my mom. Word got out, and know people know. I like the anonymity.

    Second - Almost all my fabrics come from Hobby Lobby, b/c they are ALWAYS on sale at $4.15 a yard, and they have the cutest mix-match assortment of fabric collections. It takes all the burdensome decision making out of selecting fabrics.

    Thanks so much for the sweet award!!

  2. I can relate to almost all of your random things! #8 especially made me laugh. I have never understood the women my age (30's) lusting after an 18 year old. Eww!

    Thanks for the award! You are awesome! (apparently I overuse exclamation points too!)

  3. Thank you! Thank you so much for my Beautiful Blogger Award Janimal!! And your kind words about my blog makes me leap with joy...and that ain't easy. You know I'm a big fan of your blog too and all the Dollar Store tutorials you given us. Smile.

    What else can I say except - you just made my day! Thanks again!


  4. Such a cool post! Congrats on your Beautiful Blogger Award!!! Thank you for sharing the other great blogs. I can't wait to check them out. It is always so interesting to see what you are up to! :)

  5. I am with you one #10 & #1 made me laugh. As a Canadian hot tea drinker who spent some time in Texas, I can still recall the day I tried iced tea. Thanks for this kind award. 10 random things, I will have to give that some thought. Look forward to visiting all the creative folks on your list!

  6. Thank you so much for the award, I so appreciate it!

    Your post made me giggle, I cannot believe you have never tasted iced tea!! And I totally agree with #2 & #3.

  7. You so made my day, janimal! Thank you so much for thinking of ME! My first blog award. And your list is so darn funny!

    Many hugs... we need to do martinis!
