One Lovely Blog Award

  Well, what a lovely surprise from a lovely friend: I've been nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award! This award comes to me from Marjan of Atelier Marie-Lucienne. I highly suggest that you pay her a visit, so just follow that link to go check out some amazing crochet patterns and tutorials! It's a great honor to be nominated by such a wonderful blog.

Blogging, Awards, One Lovely Blog

So, here are the rules:

-Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog

-List the rules

-Display the image of the award on your post

-Share seven facts about yourself

-Nominate up to 15 bloggers for the award, and notify them to let them know you have nominated them

Okay, here we go with my seven facts:

1) If I had to pick one food to eat for the rest of my life, and there were no health consequences from it, I would pick raspberry jelly doughnuts.

2) I used to be a mechanic.

cars, mechanics, head gasket, water in oil

3) I struggle with anxiety every day.

4) I am obsessed with abandoned urban exploration.
And if you don't know what that is, you can get an idea from my favorite explorer.

5) I am afraid of thunder and lightning. (Which it's doing here right now!)

rain, thunder, lightning, Florida

6) I've only been out of the state of Florida six times in my life. Still haven't seen snow.

7) Heavy metal is always my first choice (start every day with Lamb of God), but I secretly also listen to flute meditation music and Peter Cetera.
...Guess it's not a secret anymore...

 That's me in a nut case! Shell. I meant a nutshell.  Okay, maybe the first one was right... Never mind, let's get on with my nominations.

These are just a few of my favorite blogs who are more than deserving of this award:

  1. Hi Jenny,
    never mind the snow - it's nice to look at but you'll hate it if you have to get up an hour earlier than usual because you have to unearth (unsnow) you car and the yard before you can leave to work in time (best half an hour earlier, cause you can only hope the streets are ploughed)...
    Now I've got some new blogs to explore (though I should concentrate on getting ready for the fair)!
    Happy crocheting,

    1. Marjan, I used to really, REALLY want to see snow... But somewhere along the line, I guess I got too old to care. I don't like the cold anyways!

      We crafters know how life can get sometimes, and those blogs will be there when things slow down. Concentrate on that fair, and good luck!

  2. I hate jelly doughnuts so you can have all of mine. Thank you for the nomination. I love the yarn 'thanks'!

    1. Only if they're raspberry! Had a grape jelly doughnut once... Yuck.

      You are very welcome for the nomination. You deserve it!
