Blog Awards received

A number of friends have blessed me with blog awards recently, sorry it has taken so long to respond to them!

Thank you Amanda De Jonge who gave me this blog award and for her very kind words! I was also given the award by Desiree - thank you!

The criteria is to mention 10 honest things about yourself and then pass it on to 4 or 5 friends.

I would like to pass this on to the following very deserving Stampers:


  1. My family is very important to me.
  2. I enjoy having time alone to potter around the house and garden.
  3. I love stamping.
  4. My yorkie, Tessa brings me such joy!
  5. I used to be such an organised person and after having children never quite managed to be as organised as I would like. But I am on working hard on being better organised.
  6. In 2010 I plan to clear the clutter and bless others with it.
  7. I am a fabulous cook, so I am told.
  8. I love the innocence of children and the sayings that they come up with.
  9. My friends are very important to me.
  10. Watching the sunset over the sea is a favourite of mine.

I could go on and on, I am surprised how easy this was...
