Wow, awards seem to be coming left, right and centre at the moment! How lucky am I? I would like to say thank you to Hiptwobesquare for nominating me for the Lovely Blog Award, and Mrs M for nominating me for another Kreativ Blogger Award!

4- I have a little brother (who’s not quite so little any more…)
5- I live in the biggest village in Europe (although there is still a debate whether it is a village or a town!)

7- I make a ‘to-do’ list each night before I go to bed for the next day!

3- Thread Wars

More Awards!

I have been nominated for my second Versatile Blogger Award! I would like to say a HUGE thank you to Kristel who nominated me for the award. She has a fantastic blog and was one of the first blogs I ever read so stop by for a look!

As I have been nominated for three awards in such a short space of time, I have decided that I am going to hunt out 15 brand new blogs to share with you as my nominations! So it might take me a while to find some worthy winners, but I want to share as many blogs as possible with you, so as soon as I have found my nominees I will share the links!

I look forward to searching for some new blogs! Check back soon for the nominations!

Another Award!

I would like to say a huge thank you to This is the Crafty One, who nominated me for The Kreativ Blogger Award yesterday! I feel really honoured to have now received two awards, especially as I haven’t been blogging all that long!

Here are the tasks that come with the award:

  1. Thank and link back to the person who nominated me.
  2. Answer the 7 questions.
  3. Share 7 random facts/thoughts about myself.
  4. Nominate 7 worthy blogs for the Kreativ Blogger Award.

7 questions…

  1. What’s your favorite song?  ~ Hmm this one is tricky! It changes all the time! However, it is always likely to be an Emilie Autumn song! At the moment, ‘Fight Like a Girl’ is still winning I think!
  2. What’s your favorite dessert? ~ Mmmmmm I like all desserts 😛 I think lemon meringue has got to be my favourite though…but I’m not picky!
  3. What do you do when your upset? ~ I don’t tend to get upset very often. When I do I normally just snuggle up in bed and cry a bit but then I’m fine 🙂
  4. Favorite pet? ~ My cat Tabby always likes to keep me on my toes! Especially now she is getting old, she’s going a bit mad and races round the house yowling! No end of entertainment…
  5. Do you prefer black or white? ~ Black.
  6. Biggest fear? ~ It probably sounds bonkers but I think my worst fear would be to see a dead person. I love watching crime programmes with gory murder victims but in real life that would terrify me more than anything!
  7. What is your attitude mostly like? ~ I’m pretty quiet and relaxed but I always seem to have loads of things to do so everyone else would probably say I rush around like there is no tomorrow!
7 random things about me~
1. I am in the process of writing what will (hopefully) be my first novel!
2. I have achieved (up to and including) my Second Gold Bar in street jazz dancing…and there are plenty mre exams to come!
3. One of the countries I have visited is Iceland and loved it (even if it did rain all week!)
4. I’m an Avon lady!
5. I LOVE getting post! When next doors dog does the ‘postman bark’ I wait in the hall to see if any goodies have arrived! (I’m sad, I know!)
6.  I am 12 days into the 30 Day Shred workout DVD.
7. I have been a bridesmaid three times.
I nominated these people because their blogs are not only creative in a crafty sense, but the way they are written and the ideas that they share are also creative!
