Kreativ Blogger Award

Well, what a lovely surprise it was to receive the 'Kreativ Blogger' Award today from the lovely Tonya aka 'The Hillbilly Housewife'.  Thank you very much!!!  The photos below are from 'The Hillbilly Housewife' Etsy store.

The rules are pretty simple: I just need to type 7 things that you may not know about me, then pick 7 people to pass the award on to, so here are the Blogs I'm passing this fabulous Award to, in no particular order:
* http://amandamakepeace.blogspot.com/ Amanda
* http://kraplap.blogspot.com/ Petronella
* http://winniel.blogspot.com/ Fanny & Winniel
* http://www.ediesfashionfactory.com/ Edie
* http://magnoliasurprise.blogspot.com/ Sarah
* http://pamannieink.blogspot.com/ Pam

Here are seven things you may not know about me - I did do this previously when I received 'The Circle of Friends' Award in March, so you may want to pop along to see that post too:

♥  I'm on a diet - and have to lose quite a lot of weight - I've started using Slim-Fast, and have already lost 7lbs! Yay!!

♥  I have 2 budgies called Pip and Sparkie - we thought Pip was a boy, but once we bought Sparkie to replace Pip's lost mate we found out that 'he' was really a 'she' - and she was very interested in Sparkie, if you know what I mean!!

♥  I love reading craft books, and have a whole collection that I love to delve into on an almost daily basis, mainly sewing and needlecraft books.

♥  I love eating pizza - pepperoni is very good!

♥  I've just received Part 1 of 'The Art of Crochet' a collectable part-work of instructions and balls of wool teaching how to crochet.  They had sold out of part 1 for about 4 months and have had to wait to receive it as it had to be reprinted, I've already received parts 2 to 5 so I'm looking forward to my journey into crochet land - I just need to pop the accompanying DVD into the player, get out the crochet hook and balls of wool and away I go!

♥  I was walking past a charity shop recently with a friend of mine and she spotted a book and suggested I buy it (it's her favourite) called 'The Alchemist' by Paulo Coelho, well, I have to say it was truly magical - I finished it in 3 days and at one point it brought tears to my eyes: it's a magical fable about learning to listen to your heart, reading the omens strewn along life's path and, above all, following your dreams.

♥   Last, but not least, I love the smell of the Lilac tree flowers - as I walk with my son to pre-school we pass some lilacs and the smell is so delicious, it's like the perfume of Mother Nature - it's truly beautiful.

I hope you enjoy your day!!


  1. Wow! Thank you so much for the award. :) Good luck with your diet, sounds like you are on a roll now!

  2. Thanks Amanda, I find dieting really hard (as I do love my food!), but I'm really trying with this one! :D

  3. Oh, thanks so much for the award! And that's some fine company to be keeping. I'll post it on my site and link ya back. Such a great idea.
    BTW: love your LinkLove page on FB. Another bit of brilliance!

  4. Thanks Edie & you're welcome!! :D

  5. Thank you so much for the award!!! I follow a lot of great blogs so it'll be a challenge to decide on just seven!
    I am so honored...

  6. Oops! I hit "post" before I was ready! I wanted to also say -- good luck on the crochet! That sounds like a neat way to learn -- it's easy once you figure out the basic stitches!
