So, after being away for about a week, and finally regaining my crafty “bug” I logged back on to find I had been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award! Which really made me smile! The lovely Cross(stitch) Your Heart nominated me, calling me a “real inspiration” in the process – which I won’t lie to you, absolutely made my day! I would love nothing more than for you to stop now, and check out her blog, as she is awesome, and if I could nominate her right back I would! She does scarily huge cross-stitch projects which I am so envious of you wouldn’t believe, I have a hard enough time staying motivated to do small projects! As well as this she’s a student, and has a second brilliant blog as well! (I don’t know how she does it!)
Now, there are a few rules which come with this, so without further ado:
Here are the rules of the Versatile Blogger Award:
(1)Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
(2) Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
(3)Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
(4) Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
(5) Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
The 15 blogs I have chosen, quite different, which is kind-of typical of me in a way, as I have a ton of interests! There are a few writers (because, as they say, those who can’t, READ) some fellow creative and crafty folk, and some who simply blog about life in general! I’m not going to go into detail – instead I am encouraging you to take a couple of minutes and check them out yourself!

Ok, so finally 7 things about me…
1: I’ve been cross-stitching since I was about 7, (when I asked a family friend about a project she was working on) I only began scrapbooking last year, the card making came subtly somewhere in the middle and I didn’t really notice. I try to do a bit of each every week.
2: I love films, I usually watch at least one a day, usually in the evenings with OH.I like pretty much anything, except westerns, unless Back to the Future 3 counts? I am a HUGE fan of Disney, but love horror films.
3: Another of my “Can’t do without’s” is tea, I have huge mugs of tea (milk, one sugar) but always leave some in the bottom, and I have no idea why! I have to start the day with a cup, and have been known to get up early to make this possible!
4: Since I was born, I have moved house 17 times, 12 were in the last 10 years.
5: In comparison, I have only been abroad 6 times.
6: I can’t do French Knots. I’ve tried so many times and still do – I usually end up using beads!
7: [An interesting last one as I don’t think I have mentioned it at all on the blog] My name, is Kayleigh (I was named after the song by Marillion) though everyone calls me Kay (or at least I ask them to).
I hope you’re having a lovely weekend, whatever you’re up to!
