Last month my blog was honoured by my friends Kelly & Victoria over at Design Ties with a “Kreativ Blogger” award.
To receive this award I have to reveal 7 things you didn’t know about me. Well, if you ask anyone who knows me, I’m a pretty open book, but I’ll try to come up with some goodies. Here goes:
1 - I am a pack rat. Yep, I’ve got closets of bags and boxes and a basement full of Rubbermaid bins, boxes and shopping bags full of stuff. I am learning to de-clutter (as I mentioned in one of my first posts on this blog – Spring Cleaning). It is a very healthy and cleansing process, but sometimes, just sometimes, I miss my stuff :(.
2 - Hubby and I met when we were 18 while we both lived at the local YM-YWCA. We have been together since – a total of 33 years – married for 27 of those – and I wouldn’t trade a single day!
3 - I love to drive. Before we moved to our current house we had a 1 hour commute to work and back. I did not mind it all – it was my wind-down time – I would think about what happened during the day or listen to music. I love long distance road trips and have often driven a good part of our trips down east or to Florida. I would love to try driving a racecar – just once!
4 - I am a member of a group of 6 women that have been friends for 30 years. We get together as often as we can, and once a year we take a week to get away together. In the beginning, we camped for the weekend, then added a day or two over the years and finally graduated to a week at a cottage. We will celebrate 25 years in 2010 and are looking for a special trip to celebrate this great milestone.
5 - I L-O-V-E Sudoku. I play every chance I get. I even have the app on my Blackberry.
6 - Although I have no where near the reported 3000 pairs of shoes that Imelda Marcos owned, I do have my fair share (OK a few people’s fair share) of shoes. I haven’t counted (I’m afraid to) but most of my closets at home have a couple/ten pair, then there’s the box I have at work, the rubbermaid bins in the basement…
7 - This probably isn’t news given the amount of time it’s taken me to respond to this award – but I procrastinate. Not on purpose, it just comes naturally – a gift you could say (or NOT!). Sometimes it works in my favour, but most times not.
So there you have it … 7 things you didn’t know about me.
I know that the rules are that I should pass this award on to 7 creative bloggers who will then tell all about their 7 things, but given the busy time of year we are in, I’m going to pass on this. Instead, I’m just going to list 7 bloggers who inspire me with their creativity – no strings attached. My gift to you!
