A deluge of awards

So, I have quite a lot of awards here to pass on and without further ado:

The TRUE Princess award
I love this award - it's so cute! :) I was awarded this darling award by Abby from Tales of a Left Brain. Thank you Abby! :)

I am awarding it to: Lindsay, Rachel, Jessica, and Mckenzie.

Abby also awarded me the "Against the Flow" award, which I have also gotten in the past but decided to give out again to:
Mariah, Rachel and Jessica , Arianna, and Kierstyn.

I was awarded the "Friend In Christ" award by Allison, AND Lindsay, (Thanks girls!) and I award it to all my followers who believe in Jesus Christ.


The Over The Top Award
I was awarded this one by Allison (thank you Allison!) and thought it very unique. This one I am only awarding to a blog I really think is 'over the top' in excellence.
Jasmine at Joyfully Home. To see what I mean, go and visit! :)

I was awarded this award by so many girls that I lost track. I know that sounds really pitiful but seriously, I had about 5 or 6 (or was it 7?) people comment and say they'd awarded me with this! Aah! :)

I award this award to anybody who wants it! :D (I know, that's lazy of me... sorry!)

 So, Here are the 7 "Unknown things" about myself that I'm supposed to post to accept this award:

1. I just started another crocheted afghan in greens and blues with lots of "bobbles"- a special crochet stitch. Pictures will be forthcoming. :D

2. To hear me sneeze is about as rare an experience as spotting some elusive and endagered kind of wildlife... I sneeze so quietly that it's seldom I get a "Bless you!" or "Gezondheit" because nobody notices that I've sneezed! ;) When my oldest brother Mark does catch me sneezing, he exclaims "Wow! I heard that one!!" :D ....sorry, that was kind of random... moving on:

3. ...this is harder than it looks. Hmm... Ah. Here's an interesting fact for you. Whenever somebody in our house pops a batch of popcorn for themselves, they invariably get mooched upon by the other members of the family who didn't make themselves any popcorn. I have a natural remedy though... nobody likes snitching my popcorn because I sprinkle it with garlic powder and parmesan cheese. I think it's delicious, but that opinion is not shared by anyone else! So my popcorn goes untouched by anyone but me.

4 Someday I would love to have a purple and yellow kitchen, aqua and brown master bedroom, rainbow-polka-dot-painted laundry room, red-and-white bathroom (or aqua-and-white) with matching beta fish in goldfish bowls, and a living room in warm brown tones with bright accent colors. I will definitely have a unique house. :)

5 Daddy and the boys just put in our fireplace insert! It only burns a small quantity of wood per hour, and it constantly blows out a stream of hot air into the living room, making our house very warm and toasty! :) This I find very exciting.

6 Yesterday I ripped my right middle fingernail nearly in half (it got bent completely backwards) while reaching for something under my bed too quickly! Owwww! It hurts but is protected by a band-aid. I hate messing up my nails like that. It almost never happens, thankfully!

7 Whew! Last one! I am very close to getting my driver's license. Any tips for taking the test from those of you who've gotten yours? :)


  1. Wow, you got a lot of awards too, Julia!! :D Thanks for awarding me. I've actually already gotten that one, but thanks, anyway! ;) It's funny... because I gave you an award that someone else had already given to you, and you did the same thing with me! Now I wish that I had given you one of my other ones! Oh, well. :) It's so hard to keep track of all these and who has gotten which ones! :D

    ~ Love and Hugs,

  2. As far as driver's tests go, the key is to relax and if you mess up don't sweat it. They're looking to see how you handle yourself as well as how your skills are. :)

    Can't wait to see you :D

  3. Ohmygosh! Thanks so much for the award, Julia! :) It makes me smiley. You rock. <3 ~Ri

  4. Hey Julia!
    Thanks for awarding me!! :)
    Sure, I would love to have another "Julia original" header! lol! ;) Love all your work, girl! Keep it up! And keep on loving Christ with all your heart! You are such an encouragement to me! I thank God for a friend like you!

    Hugs and love!

  5. Dear Miss Julia,

    I have commented a couple times on your blog but never told you how much I enjoy reading it. It is very inspiring just by looking at your back round. :)

    I really like to look at your etsy and other hand made items. Your blog is so creativly done and I love that when you write, that your personality shows in your posts.

    And to comment on this post:
    You seem like the kind of young woman who would have lots of color in your home. :) I will probably have a very bland home when I am older.( But maybe I'll have creative husband. ) :)

    Many Blessings,
