Kreativ Blogger Award



I have received a Kreativ Blogger Award from the wonderfully talented Natasha aka as Piper + Lily.  I feel completely honoured to have received this, considering the company I am in.  Thank you Natasha!

This is now the award works:
1.  Copy the picture and post it on your blog.
2.  Thank the person that gave it to you and link to their blog.
3.  Write 7 things about yourself that we don't know.
4.  Choose 7 other bloggers to pass the award to.
5.  Link to those 7 other bloggers.
6.  Notify your 7 bloggers.

Ok, 7 things that you may not know about me!

1.  I have an identical twin sister.

2.  I will be 40 this year!  Not much of the year left either :)

3.  In a previous life I was a chef for about 13 years, give or take the odd break.  After that I worked for Group Special education (GSE) in early intervention before deciding to be a SAHM, now I am a WAHM :)

4.  As a teenager I was heavily into sport, my weekends used to be filled with running, hockey, netball and basketball.  Now I find it really hard to get motivated to go to the gym!

5.  I spent 3 good years living on the Chatham Islands.

6.  I have three chickens living in my backyard, who provide us with an abundance of eggs, Sandy who is named after  Graham Sinclairs wife (fishing guru to my son - but as I informed him that the chickens were girls, he decided that Graham's wife Sandy was a more appropriate choice), Miley and Hannah (I have a five year old daughter that has discovered the world of Hannah Montana).

7.  My favourite takeaways are Indian :)  Thankfully they are my husbands and kids favourite takeaway as well.

Now, for my 7 bloggers that I would like to pass this award on to are in no particular order!

Mee a Bee - Jacqui is a super talented lady, making designer messenger bags among other things for kids.  Her work is of the highest quality and the fabrics that she uses are gorgeous.  A Mee a Bee bag is a must for every child.  Her blog makes for pretty good reading as well!

How Tweet it is to be a Chick - Christine has the most adorable and well made accessories with both all the little girls and the bigger girls.  I have some for Emma and they are stunning!

Imba - Catherine from Imba design is another sewing superstar.  Her designs and fabrics are gorgeous.  I am always wishing that Emma was still a baby so that I could dress her in Imba designs clothing.  Her bibs are a must have baby fashion accessory!

Made it Baby - Amy and Suzan are the faces behind Made it Baby, another two very talented ladies behind the sewing machine.  I love their style and the fabric choices that they use.

Sticky Tiki - Kim and her partner design the most amazing Wall Decals printed on fabric.

Little Lizzies - Not only is Amanda from Little Lizzies super talented behind the sewing machine, she also knows how to using a set of knitting needles.  I love her designs.  Amanda uses recycled and vintage fabrics as much as possible.

Sew Katiepie - Kate is the creator of the lovely Sew Katiepie range.   Kate's range features the most gorgeous Kimono style wrap cardis and hoodies made in NZ merino!

Love Love Love the idea. I've just discovered a few lovely blogs I didn't know about, along with a few fab facts about the girl behind the knitting needles... the Chathams!? Maybe now's when I fess up to the fact I lived in Greymouth for several years! Off now to trawl my blog faves looking for my top 7 lovelies.
Cheers.
