Super Sweet Blogging Award

Posted on


I have been given the 'Super Sweet Blogging Award' from Jill at Christmas Pie Crafts.  
  I am really touched that she would name my ramblings as one of her favourite blogs.  What I have to do now is answer 5 questions and then name a bakers dozen of my own favourite blogs :)

So, first, my fave blogs... In no particular order whatsoever...

Wendy @ Handmade Harbour

Caroline @ Carolees Crafts

Simmi @ Graces Favours

Ali @ AliBee Creations



Free Spirit Designs

Catkin Jane

Rita @ One of a Kind Fantasy Sculpture

The Patchwork Fairy

Chasing Art

Jan @ Handcrafted by Picto

Highland Monkeys

Please do go along and check out their blogs... :) I love reading them every week!

Now for the 5 questions:

1.   Cookies or Cake.....Oh do I HAVE to choose??  Hmmm Cake just edges it.

2.   Vanilla or Chocolate....Easy!  Chocolate!

3.   What is your favourite sweet treat?....   Nutella and a spoon.

4.   When do you crave sweet things the most?.... All the time ;)

5.   If you had a sweet nickname, What would it be?... Cupcake :)

So there it is.... Thanks again Jill!!

I had a very happy daughter this week.  I secretly ordered a sterling silver washer from Tiny Treasures and made it into a One Direction bracelet.  She literally squealed when she saw it!

So I am a good Mum this week!! :D Happy days!

Still no #SBS retweet as of yet.  But I WILL persevere and hopefully it will one day be me. going to head off to bed.  Half term went far too quickly and it's back to work for me tomorrow!  I will be heading over to Handmade Monday tomorrow to catch up with everyone!  Take care!

Bye for now
