A Blog Award...

...from the lovely Virginia over at Celtic House - as usual, my non-techy skills came to the fore and Oooooooooooooo I've had fun trying to get this image on here LOL; done now...Yes!

I need to share with you 7 little or unknown facts about me and then pass this lovely award to 8 other bloggers. Here we go then...
1. Love the sun and being warm but can't stand excessive heat - you know the sort; the type that just makes you feel bleeeeeeeeerh.
2. Beautiful gardens always delight me but I'm not much of a gardener so mine will never make it into that category LOL
3. I'm a bit OCD when it comes to colouring in images. I can spend ages getting it 'just right' (in my eyes that is) - I think I've always been like this. Even as a child I wouldn't let anyone touch my colouring books in case they coloured outside of the lines...
4. You probably all know that I "don't do messy" and yet I always find myself drawn to those crafting techniques that involve mess - doh!
5. I love history and finding out about places I've been to or would like to go - one of the first things I did when we moved into this house was to find out about its background and the history of the area.
6. I'm not a good commuter - I don't suffer fools gladly and inconsiderate folk really wind me up...the ones who use mobile phones & personal stereos (loudly) in the Quiet Zone of the train...the ones who don't keep their children under control and let them climb all over seats...the ones who don't look where they are going because they are chatting on their phone...
7. I don't watch a lot of TV but the TV is on a lot...I like the sound of background noise (not too loud) when I'm crafting and TV chatter fits the bill.

Well I doubt that you will find any of that earth shattering but you now know a bit more about me LOL

Now to pass this on to 8 other bloggers...

Claire - hasn't been blogging very long but she makes some beautiful cards despite being overseas in an area where craft supplies are in very short supply.
The Crafty Elf - is partly responsible for getting me into 'Challenges' - I saw all the lovely stuff on her site and had to wander off and have a go too.
Debbie - I just love the cute characters that she comes up with and the ideas she has for quick & easy makes.
Paula - has been a long time bloggy friend and I am loving seeing her current project of working through the book the artists way.
Hannah - she amazes me with the amount of crafting she manages to fit in despite having two little girls to contend with.
Kerryanne - I found Kerryanne's blog when she shared her Christmas Planner with the Christmas Planner site. Her artwork is beautiful and her characters so full of life and fun.
Lynn - I'm not sure how I found Lynn's blog but I'm so glad that I did. Her artwork is amazing...from small shabby chic tags & cards to full size room decor - WOW!
Andy - not only does he come up with some fab crafting but he shares the 'how to' details too. His ideas are super and very inspiring even if costly (the problem with living too near his shop LOL) but he is always there to bounce ideas off of and always helpful when you need something to 'kick start' the old mojo.

There you go...8 blogs that I love, although it was very difficult coming up with just 8 as there are sooooooooooo many...............................

Thank you so much for my award and for taking the time to make regular comments on my blog. I don't have a lot of time on my hands with my two small children, but what time I do have I try and do something crafty! :)

Whoops pressed publish before I'd done LOL - I get absolutely irrate if I see a driver in a car on a mobile and if it's a lorry driver well the air is blue - enough said - hope you're having a grand day!
