Blog Award

Stylish blogger Award

I've returned this week from the beach and look what I've got......I received 2 blog awards how exciting is that!!! The first award is from Sharon and the other is from Deanne, both from my design team over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. What a lovely thought as both of these ladies are just so talented and each week they inspire me with their work and creativeness which I learn from and admire.

Thanks so much Sharon and Deanne .

Now the rules in accepting this blog award are to tell 8 things about me that you probably don't know and then pass along the award to 8 other blogger's that I think are fantastic! Isn't that part fun?!! So let's get started:

  1. I am a full-time mum at home, but because of my back ground I work from home for my darling husband, doing all of his accounting, web-site maintenance and paying wages to his staff. Prior to giving up work I worked for an American Company for 10 years.
  2. I have two wonderful children, both are amazing boys that I'm just so so proud of. Liam starts boarding school on the 1st February he's 11 and a quarter and Ryan will be a Year 5 at our local Primary School he's 9 and a quarter and will be a senior this year at his junior school. Both boys love their sports Soccer, Cricket, Touch Rugby, Swimming and Surf Life Saving. Liam is a very talented swimmer being one of the top 6 for his age in our county.
  3. I've been married to William now for 12 years he is Irish and comes from County Wicklow in Ireland.
  4. I'm on my Son's School Board of Trustees, helping manage our school. I also umpire and coach Cricket and I manage my sons Soccer Team and in my spare time I am also a director of two Companies.
  5. I am the youngest of 7 children, I have 3 brothers all living in New Zealand and I have 3 sisters all living in Australia.
  6. I love card marking as this is my time to sit, think and relax with wonderful coloured papers, inks, ribbons and all of the other embellishments I use. I have also done Cross Stitch, Scrap Booking, Beading, Knitting and Quilting.
  7. My favourite all time movies would be Titanic and Dirty Dancing and music would be Ronan Keating, The Corrs, Rod Stewart, The Bee Gees, just to name a few.
  8. My favourite foods far to many to name them all but I'm really a fruit, vegetable, cheese, fish, chicken, steak and a glass or two of wine girl and the occasional G&T in a tall glass with lemon or lime.

Heidi from Heidi's Imagnarium
