Versatile Blogger Award

Hi Everyone,

I hope your all having a lovely weekend. I was recently given the Versatile Blogger Award from Kashi at Kashi's Corner. I am delighted to get this award and even more delighted that Kashi and others enjoy reading my blog. I am relatively new to blogging and I love getting to know people with the same interests as me, its an inspiration and really great fun. Thank you Kashi for the award, it means alot to me and I am grateful :)

The rules of the award are:
1. Add the award to your blog;
2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you;
3. Mention 7 random things about yourself;
4. List the rules;
5. Award to 15 bloggers; and 
6. Inform each of those 15 by leaving a comment on their blog.

Hmmmmmm, 7 random things about me, well lets see:
1. I have a phobia of tomato ketchup. I hate it and I can't even touch a plate if its on it, how weird is that :)
2. I burned 2 fingers on my right hand when I was a toddler, I put my hand over a candle and didn't think to take it out, oooopsie
3. I have an honours degree in Chemistry and a Masters Degree in Environmental Science
4. I met my husband when I was 17
5. I really am addicted to books, I just love books especially craft and cook books
6. I LOVE Christmas
7. I love a hot cup of tea first thing in the morning, it sets me up for the day

Now to pick 15 bloggers to give the award too, this will be tough because I love Kashi's blog and her list, alot of them are my favourites too. :  
15. Knitspiring Odyssey

I didn't like to overlap my choices so the following blogs are the ones Kashi nominated but I also really enjoy them. They're really worth checking out:

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. 

Happy Crocheting, x

  7. Thank you so much for the award!! I'm chuffed!! And I love all the other blogs you picked.
    I love a good cup of tea, although I very rarely get to drink it hot these days! And I haven't read a book since Rose was born......3 children and books and crafting something had to go and it was the books.
    Have a fantastic weekend
