Blog award!

Suzy, a fantastic woman who I've not seen for ages gave me this award... *shiny* Took me a while to figure out where she fitted in, but I squealed when I did! You can find her at Blogging in Bulgaria which I've really enjoyed reading... except the poor kitty. :(

Along with the award comes a set of rules that I'm supposed to follow... Well, we'll have a go!
They are as follows:

  • Express gratitude to the blogger who bestowed the award unto you. -Grovel's at the fantabulous Susy's feet. (check)
  • Display the picture on your blog proudly. It didn't fit on the page in extr large! (check)
  • Be nice and provide a link to the person who gave it to you. Just in case you missed it, Blogging in Bulgaria (check)
  • Tell up to six outrageous lies about yourself, and at least one outrageous truth, or switch it around and tell six outrageous truths and one outrageous lie. No, I'm not offering prizes for correct guesses! ;) (check)
  • Nominate seven creative writers who might be into doing this. They might not be 'into' it, but I'll award them as I think they're all fab and add some sunshine to my day. (check)
  • Post links to the seven blogs you nominate and let the owners of those blogs know. See below (check)
So here are my lies and/or truths, take a guess if you like (or not!!)

I've never cheated... ever.

I do not have an obsession with crafty things.

I used to have my nipples pierced.

I own five pairs of shoes.

I'm allergic to cats

My boyfriend owns (and wears) a man-kini! (shudders)

I'm 6 foot tall in real life.
Good luck!

I'm nominating the following ladies (as I'm blatantly sexist!) for the Creative Writer Blogger Award, they all brighten up my day in some little way (not to say no-one else does, but I can only pick 7 apparently, and I'm being good and playing by the rules and everything!) I hope they see it as the compliment it's intended as.

Helen at It's All Fiddle Fart! (the greatest name for a blog EVER!)
Carmen at Whoopidoo...ings (Alice Cooper fan being one of her many good points)
Leigh at Leigh's little Blog (I'm not a card maker, but I love her work)
Myzdamena at Subversive Myz (I adore this blog, totally appeals to my humor, nuff said!)
Claire at Claire's {Very Messy} Craft Room (I always feel better after seeing her craft space ;))
Helen at Loving the Traditional  (she always has something fabulous on the go)
and finally...
Linda at A Crafting Journey (Still totally jealous she's off to Ranger U!)

And I also need to apologise to Claire for taunting her about her lack of willpower when it comes to scrapping stuff! *blushes* SORRY! You see, I'm no better! *lol*
Back to writhing... oops! Writing!

Thanks for the award hun, DH is trying to work out why I'm laughing whilst reading this but I can't tell him cos he'll find out about the stash lol sssh! I think the Mankini is true :D
Will you be watching Going Postal at the weekend... I may sound sad but I can't wait. No need to apologise for teasing me about stash... stash shopping is soup for the soul... enjoy your goodies, then buy some more tee hee.

Thank you so much for this fabulous award ... of course it would not have been possible without the never ending support of my hairdresser and nail technician. Thanks also go to my cook ... my chauffeur ... my personal shopper and my toothbrush assistant. It is with great pride that I accept this award and I will now mull over what I intend to do with it.
Thank you again ... you made my day :0)

Carmen said...

LOL! Now how bad is it that I can't work out which is the lie and which might be the truth eh? LOL!

Thanks so much Jenny, will have to ponder on this one because, as you know, I am certainly not outrageous in any way and am whiter than white when it comes to innocence :P
