A Blog Award & New Stamps

The wonderful Bevlea bestowed (isn't that a magnificently "old" sounding word!) me with a Kreativ Blogger award this week which was a lovely compliment - thank you Bevlea! The way it works - (a) thank the person who gave the award (b) copy the logo onto your blog (c) link the person to your blog (d) pass onto 7 others and (e) list 7 things that no-one really knows about you.

This time I am not actually going to pass it on as I always find it very hard to pick and choose when I read and love SO many creative blogs but this is my list of 7 "unknown things" (for what it is worth!):

1. I've lived in 20 different houses/units etc although I spent the first 17 years of my life in one house and have lived in our current house for 10 years.
2. I really dislike routine but have forced myself to have some important ones so that I can be part of the workforce and a reasonably capable parent!
3. I love lots of clothing styles even though I wouldn't ever buy/wear them.
4. I love lots of different decorating styles even though I wouldn't actually choose them for my own house.
5. I love cooking but hate cooking for formal type events (which is why I gave up on dinner parties nearly three decades ago!)
6. I love simple things.
7. I have a ridiculous number of ink-pads (too ridiculous to enumerate publicly).

Gosh that was hard - I am pretty much an open book so it is hard to find things that people might not know about me.

I've had a bit of a little splurge lately after a period of "saving" and I have some lovely new stamps - the Funky Flames one below (stamped twice here) from the Tim Holtz collection at Stampers Anonymous and the Christine Adolph Fresh Flowers Giant Cube are the latest ones I've acquired! I'm going to play with them this afternoon hopefully although I have to finish my 12 pages for a Calendar Swap first.

And just so there is actually something to look at, here are the first couple of pages in my article on using Metal Tape in the latest Stamping & Papercraft magazine (Vol 15 No 7) - Metal Tape, the Cuttlebug, Alcohol Inks and Black Gesso - a really fun combination!
