Honoured to be nominated for a Kreativ Blogger Award

Wow, what a fantastic way to start the day.  This morning, I stumbled around, coffee cup in hand and peered into my inbox to find a message saying that the lovely and talented Constance Wallace aka legendsofgreenisle has nominated me for the Kreativ Blogger Award!

Constance who calls Georgia home, is not only an award-winning writer and poet; but is also working on obtaining her PhD in History.   Her series Legends of Green Isle is a wonderfully crafted fantasy fiction series for young adults.  I’m at a loss for words (which, trust me doesn’t happen often) and honoured that she has nominated me for this award….I haven’t stopped smiling since! 🙂

As part of being nominated for this award, I have to (1):  nominate 6 others for the blog award, and (2) share 10 things that readers might not know about me.  So, here we go:

My nominations, there are so many more that should be on this list, so please don’t feel bad if you’re not included!  You’re all my favourites! 🙂

Here we go!

1. Lora Fisher ~ , a smart, sassy and talented woman who always impresses me with her amazing insights and brilliant work.

2.  Amber Meadows ~ , the amazing and talented “queen of blogging”.  A wonderful woman whose authenticity shines through every piece she writes.

3.  Charlotte Rains Dixon ~,  a brilliant writer and coach who never fails to inspire.

4.  Melissa Foster ~ , the guru of social networking for authors.  Her site is a hub for indie writers to network and promote their work.

5. Rich Weatherly ~ is a true gentleman whose work never fails to impress.

6. Toby , a wonderful woman, great mystery novelist and brilliant blogger.

10 things that readers might not know about me….

  1. I married my best friend!
  2. I have a goofy sense of humour and it tends to come out when I am the most stressed.  In situations where most people would be crying…I am wise cracking!
  3. When I was entering high school, I was told it was not “proper” for girls to take technology courses….so I took machine shop, auto mechanics, drafting, and electronics…ALL of the shop courses. One of my first acts of defiance!
  4. One of my favourite jobs was working as a court clerk; it was a great opportunity to people watch and helped develop my ability to read people.  Also comes in handy when  developing characters. 😉
  5. I love to collect items such as cameras, typewriters, and fountain pens. I love anything vintage, especially useful everyday items; I like to think of the wonderful words and images that were captured by their previous owners.
  6. I have a fondness for  Steampunk inspired art, jewellery and imagery.
  7. I have a bad coffee and chai tea addiction, and I am not apologizing for it! 😉
  8. I love to be inspired by recipes but don’t like following them…so far no major disasters. 🙂
  9. I love music and have very eclectic tastes, my Mp3 player holds everything from Jazz to Punk. I am also my husband’s bass roadie and #1 fan.
  10. I have to have at least one creative project on the go at all times whether it’s writing, art, photography or even basket weaving 😉 ….it’s much cheaper than therapy! 😉

That’s pretty much it!   I am honoured and would like to thank Constance again for nominating me!  Wishing everyone a wonderful day! 🙂
