Monday Award and Meme Day

Today is Monday and the day that I'm supposed to post all my awards and memes for the week. This is going to be fun. This week I was blessed with several awards from Carolyn at Talk to Grams. Thanks so much, Carolyn. I love them all and the Biggest Heart Award is especially awesome.
I'd like to give the toadally awesome award to all the people on my blogroll, so scroll down and if your name is there, you're welcome to take a copy of this award.

The Cool Cat Award was given to my by both Carolyn at Talk to Grams and Sharon at Sit With Me Awhile. Thank you, Ladies. It is adorable. It is going to ALL my visitors. Regardless whether you've been here before, you are welcome to take a copy. All my readers and visitors are awesome.

Anni over at Hootin' Anni's was tagged for a screen capture meme and asked others to participate. Anni is always a lot of fun and this was a challenge for me because I had no idea how to do a screen capture. This is what Anni said:

1. Capture a picture of your computer’s desktop.

2. Post it on your blog along with a link to who tagged you.

3. Tag some people.

Here’s how you can do a screen capture:

1. View desktop and press the Print Scrn key (located in the upper right corner of your keyboard on the same row as the F12 key).

2. Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and do a Paste (CTRL + V).

3. If you wish, you can “edit” the image, before saving it, but it is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun.

Thanks, Anni! You taught me something today and here is the screen capture of my desktop. It is a photo I took at Sea World when we were in Florida. Notice the icons of the games that hubby and the grandsons play. I'm not into computer games but they are. Notice when I took the screen shot that I had two windows up. One was Hootin' Anni's blog and the other was my ebay page.

Like Anni, I am not going to tag anyone for this meme, but if you'd like to participate be sure and let me know. I would love to see your screen capture and following Anni's instructions, it's very simple to do.

Today I cut out the boys Valentine cards that I'm making for them. I am going to be working on them for the next day or so and if they turn out good, I will post photos.

Take care and have a wonderful and safe week. Remember, a smile can light up someone's day and be a real blessing, so when you see someone who looks a little down, give them your best smile. ~Blessings, Mary~


  1. Congratulations on your awards, Mary, and thank you for passing them on to us. You're definitely a Cool Cat and Toadally Awesome. ;o)

    Hope this week is a good one for you.

    Love and hugs,


  2. Good Morning Mary,
    "CONGRATULATION'S" on some very well deserved Awards. You do deserve each and everyone you get. "THANK YOU" for the ones you passed on to me as well. I am having trouble sleeping tonight, so I went ahead and did my post for today. I told about your Easter Giveaway and borrowed the pictures to share with everyone as well. I hope you don't mind. I also let everyone know about the Awards you passed on to me and I did like you did, passed them on to everyone on my Blogroll. I'm like you, the first Award with the clouds shaped like a heart is so beautiful. I love your picture you have on your computer. I told Anni I would do it if I could figure out her instructions. LOL. I'm not computer literate and I told her I would have to play around with it some to see if I could do it. I also need to make me a separate page for all of my Awards, but I haven't figured out how to do that either. Oh well, maybe someday I'll learn. I know the boys will be glad to get their Valentine's Cards from you. I do hope you will be able to share them with us as you do such beautiful work on your cards. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

    Love & Hugs,
    Karen H.

  4. Mornin' Mary!!! That is ONE beautiful desktop you got there!!! I'm glad it was a simple procedure for you to learn too!!!

    Congrats on the awards. I don't do the meme for Monday tho, maybe I should....but I just post 'em as I get 'em. I have always been reminded of how I'm the black sheep of the bunch. LOL

    Enjoy working on the boys Valentines....I can't wait to see them.

    Happy Monday.

  5. Mary

  6. Your Easter giveaway is beautiful and those cards are just great.. Such a talent you are.. I am going to give it some thought and go and put my name in that pot..... I am afraid that I do not have many memories of Easter with family.. Pretty sad I guess but I think I have a picture some where of me in a dress that Grandmom made,,,,,, I will dig into my memory..

    Lovely awards to you today.. and in like manner I have left one for you on my blog..........

  8. Congrats on your awards Mari!!! You are such a lovely lady:)

  9. I feel the same way about a smile. I find when I am out and about the need to smile at others and it makes me feel so much better. My daughter takes her son back tomorrow for some more testing. We appreciate all of you prayers...Blessings ...Mary

  10. Congratulations on your awards, Mary!! The big heart award is very pretty, clever and fits you to a "T"! They all fit you to a "T" - but especially that one!

    The screen shot is a neat idea. I may give it a try. I love the photo you have on your desktop! I will let you know if I get it done!

    Love & Hugs,
