Sunshine Award

Hi my super crafting and blogging friends.  My apologies for the late in the day post, but it took me a while to think about this one!

I am honored and humbled to receive another blog award:-)  This award is called the Sunshine Blogger Award and it was given me by the very talented and crafty Norma of Pink Bling Crafter.  Thank you so much Norma :-)

Guess what - I get to pay it forward:-)

Here are the rules:

1.  Include award logo in blog post.
2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you and include a link back to them.
3. Answer 10 questions about yourself, that you have made up yourself. (I might have to pinch a few!)
4. Nominate 10-12 bloggers and contact them at their blog site to inform them.

Question 1.  What was the last good book series you read?

Diana Gabaldon series The Outlander Series about Jamie and Claire; I couldn't put these down.

Question 2.  Name one place in the world you would love to visit.

The Grand Canyon, but there's no way you will get me walking out on that glass bridge or taking a helicopter ride!

Question 3.  Why did you emigrate to Canada?

Thought a few of you might want to know the answer to this question.  We wanted a whole new start in life with our children and we got it.  We have no regrets at all about leaving the UK, other than maybe some proper fish and chips by the seaside LOL!

Question 4.  What do you enjoy most about crafting?

I love the peace and quiet, and I also enjoy the looks on peoples faces when you give them something you have made.  I also love creating something from virtually nothing:-)

Question 5.  Why did you start up your blog?

I wanted a way to record my creations and ideas, and to be able to share this with like minded people.  It also gave me a little more purpose in life when I hit a low!

Question 6.  What is one of your worst qualities?

I find it really hard to take a compliment, and always feel people are just being nice and putting up with me.  Even my husband finds it annoying, but he literally does put up with me LOL!

Question 7.  What is one of my best qualities? (Sorry I lifted this question, its getting hard - my brain hurts!)

I am very loving and giving and always try to help if I can. ( I'm biased so what can I say!)

Question 8.  How did you meet your husband?

I met Andy at 20000ft (maybe more LOL) we are both ex Royal Air Force and we were passengers in an airplane, flying home for the holidays from Cyprus.  His first letter to me was addressed to Passenger 17G from Passenger 17F as I am not very good at introducing myself!  His letter went through three forces post offices to reach me in Cyprus, (he was based in the UK), I thought I had better reply and the rest they say is history:-)  In fact we have been married 17 years today!

Question 9.  Who do you miss most?

I miss my Mum.  She passed in 2003 and I miss her every day.  I miss going shopping with her and having all the laughs and tears that we shared.  She was a very young 60 when she passed and the kids have misssed having one awesome Nanny.

Question 10.  What couldn't you live without?

My family and my friends - they make me laugh, they make me cry and I would be lost without them all.

I never knew how hard asking yourself 10 questions could be!

I am passing the award to the following bloggie friends - I hope you will accept:-)

2. Andie and Brandy - Contagiously Crafty

3. Tracy - Tracys Treasures

6. Pamela - Loving My Crafts

9. Doreen - Doreen's Dream

10. Migdalia - Crafting with Creative M

11. Lisa - A Mermaid's Crafts

And my list could just go on and on:-)  Thank you to everyone that takes the time to visit and to support me in my blogging life:-)  You all make me smile, laugh and also inspire me each and every day and for that I am truly grateful.
