The Honest Scrap Award

Yikes - I've been passed/nominated or something'd a blog award - Don't panic!! OK - panic!

Well, the lovely lady who passed this award on to me is a fellow Twitterer, which is a great way to meet up with some great crafters/artists. Janet from The Empty Nest sounds like a great lady and her blog is a veritable hive of creativity! To accept the award I have to list 10 honest things about myself and link back to and thank the person who nominated me. Also I have to pass the award onto 7 other blogs of my choice.

Thanks Janet - I am truly honoured!! Here are 10 honest things about myself, in no particular order:
(1) I am the youngest of six children (four girls and two boys). There are only 8 years between the youngest and the eldest in the family, so we are all close.
(2)When I was 10, I jumped off a trampoline at school, landed on my elbow and dislocated/fractured my arm - my wrist never really set properly so I'm not a very good typist (although I work part-time as one!)
(3)I have a very sweet tooth and love eating Jelly Babies!
(4) My two children (both boys, 7 & 13) are six years apart in age but bizarrely were both born at precisely the same time of day - 4.25 am, to be exact.
(5)I have been married for 19 years to the same man and deserve another award for that fact!! (just kidding hubby!) We got married on a Friday 13th, so I'm not superstitious!
(6)I love all forms of art and was brought up with other family members who have trained as Artists/Art Teachers or connected to Art in some way.
(7)I am a bit of a wanna-be movie buff and could honestly spend all day watching films (if only I could!)

(8)I was born in the Outer Hebrides and was brought up in a Gaelic speaking household - however I don't speak Gaelic as much as I should!
(9)I dye my own hair as I wouldn't have the patience to sit still in a hairdressers for 2 hours.
(10)I was very close to my mother who sadly passed away 4 years ago. She taught me how to knit and sew, for which I am eternally grateful - she was a wonderful mother and a very gentle natured person.

Here are the 7 blogs I have chosen to pass this award onto:

Have a Happy Sunday!

Thanks for tagging me. I was just about to let you know that I was tagging you for "Six unimportant things that I love". I guess at the end of this we will all know a lot more about each other. I think the two tags compliment each other so I hope you want to play along.

ps...don't tell a soul, but I color my hair too ;-) For 34 years my man thinks I have been 'deep' conditioning it...He..He
