My First Bloggy Award!

Wow, I am in shock and awe. Lisa at Simply Things Family has given me a bloggy award--my very first one!

Lisa has been quite a loyal commenter over here at Balancing Act Basics, and I always enjoy reading what she has to say. Not only her comments here, but her tips & tricks at her own blog, Simply Things Family. Lisa's blog focuses on helps for you and your family. I love her idea on making Back-to-School Binders.

I feel very honored, grateful, and humbled by the blog award. I certainly haven't written any of my posts with the hope & dream of winning a blog award. Far from it. Instead, I write my blog simply because I love sharing with others some of the tips and tricks I've learned over the years that have helped me to balance every little aspect of my life that makes me who I am and who my Heavenly Father wants me to be.

I will pass this my friend Robyn and her blog Robyn Bobbin Bo Bobbin. I've known Robyn and her husband from 'back in the days of college. We recently reconnected on Facebook, where I learned about Robyn's blog. She is a very crafty person, and by crafty I mean creative! Her blog is filled with card-making and stamping ideas, as well as kid-friendly crafts, like making a Harry Potter wand with paper, glue & paint, as well as string art and faux stained glass art.

I'm also passing the award over to Hannah & Abby over at Safely Gathered In. One of my on-going projects is building our long-term food storage. I don't write much about it, but that's mostly my fault because I just never think about it. These ladies help you gather goodies for your 72-hour kits, short-term and long-term storage, and provide recipes, how-to's, and free printables. One of my favorite posts is How To Make a Cardboard Oven. We plan on using this technique on future camping trips.

If you get a chance, please take a look at these two blog sites and give them a "shout out". They've got a lot of great helps for you and your family, and they certainlyhave One Lovely Blog!
