I'm Honestly Honored - By The Honest Scrap Award

Bellissima‘s Blog has won another award - my 2nd - and I couldn‘t be more pleased and incredibly honored!!

I actually won The Honest Scrap Award during The Lather Project, but decided to wait until after it was over to post on it - but boy, was it hard… I’m so excited!

I want to thank Invites By Jen for honoring me with this fun and wonderful award! You can read her post and visit her Blog here:

Jen has a super blog and an absolutely amazing shop at etsy. Take a moment to visit for creative handmade cards, stationery & invitations -

There are a few requirements to accepting the Honest Scrap Award:

1) The Honoree must thank the person who gave the award and list their blog and link it (please see above!).

2) The Winner must list 10 honest things about themselves - and here are my ‘Confessions‘:

  • I find old episodes of ‘Frasier’ hysterically funny

  • My bookshelf is filled with horror novels

  • I wish I had earplugs every time my husband puts death metal on - or Howard Stern

  • I put mineral makeup on whether I’m leaving the house or not - because I know it’s so good for my skin

  • I like listening to ‘80s pop music while I’m working in my 'lab'

  • I love to watch old movies on TMC when I’m not feeling well

  • I know all the words to every Abba Song - I love ‘Mamma Mia’

  • My Mom, my Husband & my Step-Daughter are my best friends

  • I cringe whenever I look at early pics I took of my products

  • I believe I could live on shrimp, watermelon and brie (not together, of course!)

3) The Winner must put a copy of The Honest Scrap Logo on their blog (please see sidebar).

4) The Winner must select at least 7 other worthy bloggers to pass The Honest Scrap Award on to & list their links - and here are my choices:

Boutique By Bonnie
Its just me, Amber
Random Splashes of Thought
Sweet Cuddle Cakes
My Little Aura
Living The Mid-Mod Life
The Seasonal Cottage

5) The Winner must notify the bloggers of the award and advise of the acceptance requirements.

Congratulations to all the 'Honest Scrap' Award Winners!
