You really think so? Aww... shucks...

 Dunt, dunt, dun...

Cara at This little light has awarded me with The Versatile Blogger award. This first time I heard from Cara was a few days ago when she left one of the sweetest comments ever on my blog. I would be lying if I said I don't get a little discouraged now and again with trying to get my blog out into the blogosphere. Her comments have really given me a boost. I can't thank her enough. Cara is a unique voice a funny and zany one at that. Check her out...This Little Light

As per the official rules I am to tell you 7 random things about me whiter you like it or not...I want to hear something about you too, at least one random thing...come..on!

1) I can never collect enough buttons, ribbon and trim NEVER. (Come back on Monday to see my guest post)
2) I love stuff but hate does that work?
3) Breakfast is my favorite meal.
4) I used to get asked what country I was from because I used to slur words together and apparently  that made me sound foreign. For example I used to say my name so fast and slurred that when introduced to new people they would say " your names Yin?"  Said more slowly and enunciated you would hear DeAnn. My husband is the one that pointed this out to me and now I say my name so normal human ears can hear it
5) I totally love music like the Lower Lights...not sure what genre it is, kinda folksy but dang good! Take a listen...really, you won't regret it. I dedicate this to you Cara ;)

6) I would want a bigger house only so I could put more pictures up on the walls.
7) I hate when I can't articulate things the way I want to...happens entirely to often.

VBA Rules state the following:
1. Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
2. Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy.
3. Next, select 15 blogs that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. (15  is a bit much for any one person, so I have picked 7.)
4. Nominate those bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award
5. Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
And now, in no particular order or preference are the blogs I nominate:
Just click on their headers to go to their blogs...

Thanks again Cara!!! 
Now, really tell me random thing about yourself :)


  1. DeAnn . . .

    Goodness, where do I even begin!

    Firstly, I was FINALLY able to coerce my husband into helping me put your button on my blog. Yay! I am so proud to sponsor and support a worthy cause, such as yours. Check it out when you have a moment!

    Sometimes I wonder what kind of people we would be if people took the time to offer kind words to one another more regularly. I try to live by this endeavor, being one who benefits greatly from the gift of a kind and thoughtful word. You, my friend, warmed my heart, with your generous approximation of me :) So glad to have met you!

    I don't think there was one part of your list of "7" that didn't resonate with me. Adore stuff and loathe clutter, yup! Breakfast, yup! (I like to eat breakfast foods for dinner :) Oh, and I was cracking up at number 4. I actually had to say it out loud to hear it, but I can see how the confusion could happen. Yin! LOL. And, wow . . . what a gorgeous version of that song!! I think I will have to put the on Facebook today and just let it be my praise for the week. Thank you, thank you!

    Number 7 on your list was like ping, pull, and sigh to the gut. As one who defines herself by the words used each day, called to tell the story of a girl not so unlike many of us, there is a little else that deflates, discourages, and devastates me more than not being able to say what it is I am trying to say. It feels personal and malicious to have my gift stolen from me, ripped from my tongue. I know that pain, deeply, and I will be lifting us both up in prayer this morning during Q.T., asking God to help us not allow a tiny thing such as words, come between the Greatness that is our God. The voice He has given you and I,commanded us to share with the world, is unique and important and nothing must hinder that. :)

    Blessings to you!!


I love to hear what your thinking and appreciate your taking the time to comment. Thanks for stopping by :) Come back soon! (I respond to every comment via e-mail so it won't show up here unfortunately)
