Kreativ Blogger Award

I received two Kreativ Blogger awards today!! One was from Cindy and the other was from Vicki. That was very nice of both of you. Thank you!

To accept the award I have to do a few things:

1. Thank the person who nominated me for this award.
2. Copy the logo and place it on my blog.
3. Link the person who nominated me for this award.
4. Name seven things about me that people might find interesting. (OMG now I have to list 14!)
5. Nominate seven Kreativ Bloggers. (14 are going out!)
6. Post links to the seven blogs that I nominate. (Posting 14)
7. Leave comments on all seven blogs letting them know I nominated them. (14 comments coming!)

So here are my, not 7, but 14 things about me that people may find interesting (or not)!

1. I started quilling at the age of 7 when my Mom gave me a quilling kit. It was of an owl. Remember back in the 70's when owl's where all the rage! Well, I haven't stopped quilling ever since then.

2. Remember as a kid when everyone asked you what you wanted to be when you grew up? My Mom thought I would either become a prostitute or a nun! Thank goodness I am not a prostitute. A nun wouldn't have been so bad, but a prostitute! Thanks Mom!

3. Since my first two comments had to do with my Mom, here's what I think about her. She is my confidant, my support, my I can tell anything to person, and most of all she is my best friend.

4. I don't work at a "real job" any longer. I have Ménière's disease. You can click on the link if you want to know what it is. The link is Wikipedia's version as to not bore you too much. Usually it effects one ear, however mine is bilateral so I am losing hearing in both ears. I will eventually, and it's coming fast, be deaf. I spend a lot of time in bed due to this disease.

5. I have two dogs. One is a miniature pinscher and her name is Foster. She is 14 years old. And my other is a 6 year old italian greyhound that thinks he's human and acts like a spoiled 2 year old child. His name is Guido. (He is Italian after all).

6. I started doing video tutorials some time ago. When I'm doing them you don't know how many times I have to start over because I start laughing at some point in the video. Yes, I may look and sound calm, but inside I'm laughing like a little girl!

7. I look at other people's blogs and see their wonderful works of art, whether it be card making, quilling, or scrapbooking and think to myself every day...... when is my work going to be as good as theirs?

8. I lost my Dad 2 years ago and still am mad at him. I know God had other plans for him, but those plans should have included him staying here and being with us.

9. I write in a journal every day. Whether it be about my day or anything else. It doesn't matter so long as I put something in there. Sometimes I just doodle.

10. Oh, this is a big one.......... I absolutely do not like Pepsi! I am a true Coca-Cola lover. Oh and throw in a Mr. Goodbar and I'm good to go!

11. I make it a point that when I go out somewhere to talk to at least one person besides the cashier or employees. I don't think our world is friendly enough.

12. I wrote a book. No it's not published, but I did it. It's one of those things on my "have to do it once in my life" list.

13. Don't laugh too hard at this one, but I hate going to get the mail! I have one of those silver boxes that have all the little mail boxes in it. It's only 3 houses down but I hate walking over there to get it. My mail person sometimes will bring it to my house as he knows how much I hate to get it. I don't know why..........I just do.

14. Lastly, if you are still reading this :) I love making tutorials and writing on my blog as I hope it gives someone some inspiration on their next project.

Whew.........that was hard! Thank you again Cindy and Vicki!

Here are my 14 blogs that I am nominating:

See you soon!

    You know, after reading your blog, buying supplies to start quilling is on the top of my "to buy" list! I haven´t seen it in any store in Norway yet, so I will have to order it online. I love any craft where you are free to come up with your own ideas :-) (I realise, most crafts are, but hopefully you know what I mean ;-))
