Yesterday morning I woke up to a most wonderful surprise. I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by Lucy from  PeaceCrafting. I really feel so honoured to be chosen for this.


I’m sure many of you already know about this award… but here are the rules again:

  •  Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  •  Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

I really am very grateful that you decided to choose me. I really love reading PeaceCrafting and have learned a number of new things. I also love how much you dote on your children, because I do the same. 🙂



  1. I love rain and thunderstorms
  2. I love to cook and experiment with ingredients
  3. I just can’t seem to break up with a book, no matter how bad it is
  4. My idea of a perfect vacation would be to visit a city with a lot of history and live life like the locals for a few days
  5. I don’t know how to swim (shameful I know!)
  6. I don’t like lettuce
  7. I’d really like to learn how to play the guitar


Accepting the award was easy, nominating others is so difficult because I have too many wonderful blogs to choose from. It’s like asking someone to pick their favourite child. Nevertheless, since I have to, here’s my list (and of course the order is random}:

  1. Thoughts of a Crooked Mind
  2. See, there’s this thing called biology…
  3. The Wolf of Starbucks
  4. A mission to Mars
  5. Just a small town girl…
  6. AFMAI
  7. WritingStoriesRocks
  9. BluChickenNinja
  10. written and smitten
  11. Deux Pies
  12. kelzbelzphotography
  13. The Ninth Life
  14. Broken Intellectual
  15. The Realm of the Chaos Fairy

Thank you all for adding a little more sparkle to my life and magic to the blogosphere….
