Welcome to my blog, hope you enjoy reading

Thursday, 30 August 2012


First off let me start by saying that there is nothing like "Blog Love". Waking up in the morning to a slew of emails and all of the wonderful comments about my posts is one hell of a highlight in my hectic, sometimes epic-ally stressful day. That being said....Thank you for all of the love. I had a particularily crappy day yesterday, filled with crappy little annoyances and crappy little backhanded comments....altogether, crappy. Then, there comes a flashing red light....a beacon of hope in my crappy little day. My Blackberry's flashing red light and the notification of an email......*cue the most wonderful email* I got the email that every newcomer to the blogger world wants to receive....I had won an award. Michele at Follow me Home had nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award.

This little comment on my blog from Michele made my day - or should I say CHANGED my day. I can't begin to thank her enough for thinking of me. 

I looked up the meaning behind the Versatile Blogger Award. Rhiannon at Happy Little Feet had a good explainantion: The Versatile Blogger award is all about recognizing budding talent in bloggers that can wear more than one hat. 

I like to think there's nothing I can't handle. There's loads of things I wouldn't want to tackle, but there is very little that I can't  do. 

So, here are the rules of accepting the award: 

1. Add the award to your blog.
2. Thank the person who presented it to you.
3. List seven random facts about yourself.
4. List the rules.
5. Pass the award onto seven other bloggers.
6. Inform each blogger they have won by posting a comment on their blog.

Seven Random Facts about Myself
1. Im a Buddhist and I strongly believe in karma.
2. I happen to have the bestest friend in the entire world for the last 24 years....and I don't wanna share :-)
3. I have a serious disliking (maybe bordering on phobia) of newspapers......they're disgusting *shudder*
4. My son Theo is named after my bestie's brother and ironically he happened to be born on his birthday too!
5. I love making things for people and I really, seriously love watching their reactions. Its the best part of giving.
6. My husband and I have been married 8 years. We've actually gotten married twice - June and November 2004.....I score 2 anniversaries every year! highly recommend.....
7. I probably watch and enjoy more cartoons then primetime tv shows.

Well, that's me in a random nutshell.....
So here are my nominees:
1. Nicole at Wonky Wonderful 

2. Sarah at Blissful Bucket List
3. Donna & Rachel at Once Upon a Sewing Machine
4. Katie at Fun Home Things
5. Carissa at Carissa's Food Blog
6. Nichi at The Mandatory Mooch
7. The Management at A Prince and Prozac (who, consequently is the FUNNIEST girl you'll ever read AND she's from Canada, so give her some EPIC love....)

PS: I got another fantastic email today that my post about Theo's Comic Book Chair is going to be featured on I Freakin Did It Friday at Miss Information......check it out!!!

And finally, just to keep the karma "above board", I've gotten The Husband to help me add a Link Page to the side bar that includes all of the blogs I've linked at. :-)




  1. Thanks for the nomination and the Canada lovin'!

    Also congrats on the award yourself, my dear!

    I definitely want two wedding anniversaries when that time in my life comes around... it's a win-win; if he remembers both days, that means double the presents, and if he forgets both? Double the pouting, and damn, I love me some quality pout time.

  2. Your work is beautiful. Could you please mention my post in your blog with a link to it so others may play along.

    Thank you for joining my DL.ART 1,000 posts Linky Party.

  3. I want two anniversaries!! Congratulations, Helen! I loved your response to receiving the award. It is so deserved, and look at that- you're going to be featured on yet another blog! That, my dear is karma. I won't forget your very kind words on my blog the other day. Keep on keeping on with your bad self.

    Yeah, I'm 40-something- I still have old-school jargon.

    p.s. Cartoons rock!

  4. Ah thanks Helen. I'm a new blogger and it's great to hear people like what they read.

  5. Congrats on the award & your feature! Thanks for nominating me - I appreciate it. I'm so happy that you enjoy my blog :) Have a wonderful week!

  6. Thanks so much for the nomination. I'm flattered!! Nichi
