Till just recently, I had never heard of the LIEBSTER AWARD....
In German, it means "beloved" or "dearest" I'm told, so it seems I've just been nominated for a Beloved Award.
Nominees are required to state eleven facts about themselves, answer the questions provided below, nominate up to eleven people and provide them with eleven questions to answer.
Not quite as easy as it sounds...
Eleven random facts about me....
1. My biggest excitement in primary school was being allowed to choose some books for our first ever real school library. I had exhausted all the books that my headmaster could lend me from his library, also those from the School of Arts, so this was a dream come true.
2. I had my first poetry published when I was 10, in the long defunct Chuckler's Weekly, and I earned 10/6!
3. I loved to climb trees.
4. My favourite tune is "In the Mood" by Glenn Miller.
5. I learnt to cook very young and still love it. All my family could cook and my grandmother would say that the only people who should learn to cook are those who like to eat.
6. My childhood hero was my paternal grandfather, who died when I was five. I miss him deeply still.
7. I still have some of my childhood toys, a well worn pink rabbit, a 'walking' doll, and a china tea set, as well as a number of books.
8. I have had a number of varied careers, from shop assistant to fashion compere, from book publisher representative to radio, twice, from cosmetician to party plan, spare parts clerk to working with a dress pattern company, from marketing/PR to sales promotions... to name just a few... not necessarily in that order. ;-)
9. Love people, and love spending time with family and friends.
10. I'm a collector of sewing and kitchen paraphernalia, family mementos and books... plus.
11. My passions are writing, reading, photography, cooking, craft, embroidery ... too many to list here.
What I would like to do is to thank Michelle from heritagescrapbook who nominated me. Michelle is a relatively new blogger, but has been creating her beautiful scrapbook papers for some time. They are a perfect addition to family history books as well as many other uses, for a special gift, as backgrounds to your own scrapbooking, whatever you wish. To keep the costs down, you can order digital copies which you can then take to any of the large stationery/printing chains and have them printed at a very reasonable cost.
For just a little extra, you can have them designed by Michelle to include the details, photos, etc. of your loved ones with appropriate themes. That makes it all so easy...
