Another week has begun...

I was recently given an award from the wonderful, always inspirational and super creative Kolleen from her blog over at HeartWingSisters and also from the kind and talented Janine at her blog Join Janine. Thank you so much to Kolleen and Janine ! It never ceases to amaze me the amount of support and encouragement that Bloggers have brought me in the past few months. Please check out both artists' work and inspiring words/thoughts daily..

To accept this award I have to do the following:

1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
5. Nominate 7 Kreative Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated.

So here goes with 7 things about me:

1. I absolutely hate to fly but adore travelling and jump at the chance to explore new countries and meet new people. My goal is to eventually travel to every country in the world...
2. I've always secretly dreamed of being a singer/dancer and have spent many a night in front of the TV trying to emulate my favourite performers!
3. I love to shop. I think it may be a problem for me at this point. I have to buy something new every day (even if it's small like a magazine or a paintbrush)!
4. I looove food um especially sushi and pretty much anything my mom cooks when I visit. I also can't make it a day without coffee and would walk around with it attached to me intravenously if I could in an IV drip bag!
5. I want to be great (not good) at everything I do and often struggle with feeling defeated when I can't make that happen.
6. The unknown future, (my unknown future plans) and the feeling that you aren't in control of your own life at times...this really terrifies me.
7. Even though I have been burned many times and have not yet been successful at it, I will always believe in true love.

And now I must pass on this lovely award to these creative and fun-to-read-daily blogs. I found it really difficult to pick just these 7 but here goes....

1. Kaili: Kaili Art and Illustration
2. Melissa: Wild Dalliance
3. LuLu: mypinkturtle
4. Heather: Life Abroad
5. Tascha: Time with Tascha
6. Kocomo: Brilliant Farmgirl's Beauty Secrets
7. Cheryl Lyn: Dream Out Loud! Design Studio

Also, here are some pics from my art show this weekend. I did not sell my submission that night but I hope it moves sometime this month when I list it in my Etsy store!

xoxo with Love

Congratulations on the award - well-deserved!

Ah, I think we are blogging BFF's or something - I too feel the desie to buy something every single day, even if it's just a small thing. I am incapable of allowing one day to go by without spending money. It is a sickness if you ask me! :)

Kolleen said...

I love to shop too, and can't live without coffee, which I refer to as
'my precious'. In fact, most of your points, I could say about myself as well :-D
Great blog! I look forward to reading more
