Righto, as per my previous post I promised I’d complete parts 2 and 3 of my obligations as a nominee for the Kreativ Blogger Award. So here it is:
7 things about me that you might find interesting (or not!)
- I love roller skating (quads, not blades). So much so that last year I visited Las Vegas with two of my best friends to attend RollerCon, a roller derby convention and then achieved my dream of roller skating along Venice Beach in LA.
- I’m left-handed. However, when I’m face painting, I do some of my sponge-work with my right hand. It wasn’t planned, I just noticed one day that that’s what I do. Now that I’m aware of it I might try and incorporate it into my other art ventures and see what happens!
- I have a kelpie x dog called Bundy. He’s more dear to me than life itself and is THE BEST company ever. His passion is chasing sticks, balls and pine cones and the odd kangaroo!
- I have an obsessive-compulsive “quirk” which results in me being oddly particular about certain things. For example, I measured each of the squares in my “Mean Reds” painting to within millimetres of evenly spaced accuracy and I don’t own a clothesline because pegs stress me out.
- I don’t cook well. Once I made pasta catch on fire (yes, literally – there were flames and smoke) and more recently I “evaporated” chicken on the BBQ…
- I was born without a sense of smell. It doesn’t bother me like people seem to think it should but sometimes scares me (because I’m so bad at cooking!) And yes, I can still taste 🙂
- I discovered I like punching stuff. Generally not people. Unless they really deserve it and that’s only happened once and it was kind of an accident… So I take boxing lessons.
7 Nominees for the Kreative Blogger Award
I’m not sure about the rules of “re-nomination” for this award as I’d really like to nominate (and thank again) the two bloggers, Melonaide and C. C. Charron, who nominated me . But we obviously already know they’re worthy as they were nominated first so I will select some different, and equally worthy, bloggers.
And the nominees are:
Trixie’s Tales – adorable comic strip tales of a beautiful dog
Simply Cute by Karin – her work is simply cute!
Pencils, Paints and Pixels – enviously beautiful oil paintings
An Artist’s Journal – varied and interesting art and useful information
M.K.D – art birds and my kind of humour!
365 Project by Ordog – digital art
Reasonably Ludicrous – very humourously entertaining writing with pictures!
In order to claim the Kreativ Blogger Award here’s what the new nominees, and the next recipients, need to do:
1. Thank the blogger who gave you the award (that’d be me!) and provide a link.
2. List 7 things about yourself that your readers might find interesting.
3. Nominate 7 other bloggers, provide links, and let them know.
Congratulations! Go forth and blog!
