When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

The Versatile Blogger - have a look & see if I've nominated you....

Good afternoon! 

Well I'm sat here with the radio on ready to listen to my boys, Bristol Rovers, who are playing away at Torquay. Wish I could be down there on this sunny day, though I reckon it may be a tad chilly up on the hill where the ground is situated! Am sure I'll hear my fellow Gasheads singing over the radio air waves as I know there are 1000 of them down there!

Anyway I was having a look through the Blogs seeing what you've all been up to when I found Dionne's post - firstly I want to congratulate Dionne on being awarded this award, but most importantly I want to thank her for then nominating me, CraftygasheadZo, for this award too!

This award comes with its rules ..........

"If you are nominated, you have been awarded the Versatile Blogger award".  First, you should thank the person who gave you this award. then:

  • Include a link to their blog,
  • Select 15 blogs that you have either recently discovered or follow regularly,
  • Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award,
  • Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

Ok so 15 Blogs...decisions....decisions!

My nominations for the Versatile Blogger Award are all people who in their own way have an impact on me,  in no particular order.  They are:


Each and every one offers something unique that not only inspires but also offers a different personality, someone to turn to.

Right so now I have to tell 7 things about me...hmmm..... not sure what I should say!

Ok here goes;

1. I'm only little - 4ft 10" (well it's actually 9" & a bit really).
2. I'm a huge bookworm, as anyone who visits me for WOYWW will have seen!
3. I enjoy waiting for pigeons to return home from races during the summer months. (My dad & son race them)
4. I'm very proud to have achieved a 2:1 BA (hons) Open degree with the Open University (I studied many   modules but mostly creative writing & English based.)
5. I have met Kevin Keegan twice!
6. I love researching family history.
7. I'm a big coffee lover - also love hot chocolate too!

So there you go, just a few things all about me.

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend, we've an extended one as my son has an inset day on Monday.
Take care Zo xx

Hi Zo, many thanks, I'm truly honoured and flattered to receive this award, especially for something I love doing ... I so enjoy cyber-meeting lovely crafters like yourself :) I will do my best to post about soon but I'm a tad busy at the moment sorting out the new craft room, there is still so much to do, I could be some time :( Hope your boys did well. My daughter is only 4'10", though she would strenuously deny it if asked :) Elizabeth x

I think you really deserve this award Zo, I have been a big fan your work for some time now.

It was so interesting to read your 7 things because it seems we have more in common that paper crafting. I too have researched my family tree and can trace some branches of my family back to something like the 1400's (without checking I cannot remember the actual date)
