Kreativ Blogger award...

I'm feeling really excited because I have been given an award from Sara at http://sarastexturecrafts.blogspot.com/ Thank you Sara... I am sat here grinning from ear to ear. This really means a lot to me especially coming from you. :-)

For this award Sara says I must list 7 interesting things about myself and then pass on this award to 7 other deserved bloggers. So if you've been nominated in this post and want to play, here are the guidelines:

  1. Thank the person who gave you the award
  2. Place the logo on your blog
  3. Link to the person who nominated you
  4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting
  5. Nominate 7 bloggers for this award and post links to their blogs
  6. Send a message to let them know they've been nominated
Well, here goes...

1. I was a midwife in a former life and delivered 150 babies.
2. I used to design magician's waistcoats with all their special secrets.
3. I design and make puppets having first been commissioned to make a set for use in puppet theatres by a company in London.
4. I am living in the same house that my family have lived in for over 60 years
5. For the first 150 years in the life of our local school there was at least one member of my family in it continuously. My Grandmother and Aunt even taught there.
6. I run my own sewing business and now have over 920 customers.
7. With all the wonderful encouragement and support from all our fellow bloggers Twiglet [the best sister in the world] and I have opened up our own blog shop to sell our crafts and I am really buzzing because of it. Please pop over there to join in the Gift Draw for a chance to win some of our goodies.

7 bloggers who inspire me right now are...
Twiglet.....how could I not put her top of the list? :-)
Julia....it's thanks to her wonderful encouragement the shop was started
MarmaladeRose......I have her to thank for encouraging me to do at least 20 minutes crafting every day
Felicity......I'm hoping she writes a book cos I really love reading her blogs
Paula....She bought my Poppy picture and made me feel 10ft tall with her comments
Paige....Every time she shows a picture of her work desk there are 2 of my little bears looking back at me
Helen....for her real enthusiasm about my crafts

Now this is why I chose you... if there's something worth blogging about you do it properly... my attempt was a bit shameful. Not very revealing, or Kreativ even!

I'm glad it made you smile!
