Do you think I use the word “awesome” too much?

You can tell me the truth.

I can take it.


I’m a little worried, myself.  At last count….I think there were 56 “awesomes” to describe pins on my pin boards.

I don’t really know what it is about that word.

Maybe it’s that it sounds like the verbal equivalent of an exclamation point.

Maybe it’s because I memorized every word of “Sixteen Candles.”

Maybe it’s because it sums up exactly how I feel about the inspiration I see daily in blogland.


Whatever the reason….

….the fact remains that I found 41 synonyms for “awesome” including:  amazing, astonishing, awe-inspiring, beautiful, breathtaking, daunting, fantastic, formidable, imposing, impressive, inspiring, magnificent, majestic, moving, overwhelming, striking, stunning, stupefying, wonderful and wonderous.

And I plan on using every one 🙂




So be sure to check out these stupefying orange fish from Linda at It All Started With Paint.

I have just decided at this moment that I am all about the word stupefying.

It’s like an “awesome” that went to college.

And got an advanced degree.


Washi Tape Keyboard


And here’s an awe-inspiring washi tape make-over from Kelly at Eclectically Vintage.

She added washi tape to the computer keys.

It kind of reminds me of a 2012 version of Lee Press On Nails.

Maybe that’s why I like it 🙂




Karah from The Space Between posted this amazing mantel with spray painted wreath.

It’s awe-inspiring.

And magnificent.

And fantastic.



Andrea from The Cottage Market created these fantastic framed cut-outs.

They are astonishing.

And wonderous.

And inspiring.

And pink 🙂

And now it’s your turn to show off your amazing, astonishing, awe-inspiring, breathtaking, fantastic, impressive, inspiring, magnificent, majestic, moving, overwhelming, striking, stunning, stupefying, wonderful

    Ah ha ha..... I think it's funny that after I read the list of awesome's I said to myself, 'self.... stupefy is the word you've been looking for', and then first up was some stupefying fish. ~Bliss~

    Jordan and I at The 2 Seasons appreciate your hosting this party. We linked up, but for some reason it isn't showing up. I tried to link again, and it told me that I was duplicating the link. I'm not smart enough to figure this all out, so I hope it shows up. I still think yours is the best blog out there.

    When we visited Ocho Rios on our cruise, our Jamaican tour guide's name was Phil. (Don't worry, this isn't the end of the story.) He used every word that he knew that began with "ph-." Made for an interesting tour. ;) (That's the end of the story now.) Thanks for hosting!

    I probably over-use awesome too. And exclamation points. But if something is awesome and worthy of a few !!!, then so be it! :-) (I use too many smilies too). Loving all the great colour inspiration so far, and still lots of party people to visit :-)

    I'm right there with ya in the awesome department. I also say amazing just as often. And whenever I think of "overwhelming" I start to quote 10 Things I Hate About You - "I know you can be overwhelmed, and you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed." Hilarious. :)

    The desk looks gorgeous, however, have you ever tried to write on a piece of paper that is on top of cork? It would be an AWESOME place to rest a laptop computer, though. Enjoy!

    I think it is awesome you use the word awesome. It means you think it is AWESOME, and how is that a bad thing? Don't change. Don't ever change. I think you are awesome. OK, kick me now in the shins, I deserve it big time. ♥

    The word I like to you use when I feel like to have used the word "awesome" to much (because I too am very guilty of it), is Brilliant! That is my word. Those fish are Brilliant and the pink frames are extra Brilliant. Maybe Brilliant can be the word that Stupefy graduates to when it gets its PhD. Just a thought.

    Hey Karianne- Thank you so much for hosting this fun party- along with your other hostesses- I am #136- Woo hoo! And I loved what you wrote about the word awesome.
