Liebster Blog Award

The lovely Loretta from The University Project kindly nominated me for a Liebster blog award The idea of the Liebster blog awards is to help get smaller blogs like mine and Loretta's more awareness!


  • Answer the 11 questions asked by the person that nominated you. 
  • Pick an additional 11 people to nominate with under 200 followers. 
  • Create a list of 11 new questions to ask your nominees. 
  • Inform your nominees of the award.

My responses to the Questions posed:

So here are the questions that Loretta gave me and my answers to them:

1. What do you love the most about blogging?
For me it is all about the social interaction with others, I love to enter into a dialogue with other people about our mutual love of Art or Filofaxes! 

2. If you only had one meal left on Earth what would it be?
Pizza, everytime!
3. What is your day job? (I'm nosey)
Photographer and Graphic Designer / Artist
4. Have you ever been in love?
Yes and I still am!  

5. How do you stay organised?
It is all about the Filofax, writing it down and staying on top of it. I am a naturally scatty person so without that I am literally all over the place!
6. What is your vice when it comes to shopping?
Stationery & art supplies. I can take or leave clothes to the point where I then desperately have to go shoppping but I can't pass up a notebook! 

7. If you could have any job at all, what would it be?
The job that I am doing now. I love it!
8. Do you think you make a good first impression?
I have no idea. I am actually quite a shy person and have to really force myself sometimes to talk to people so depending on how much courage I have that day, I could either be over the top bubbly or stand offish. I don't mean to be though!

9. You have a free weekend... what do you do with it?
I am a massive home bunny and a snuggler. I love just pottering around the house with Mr B, the bunnies and piggies. So I would probably throw in a bit of gardening, some arting and maybe some reading. The settle down to afternoon tea that Mr B has made - he is the best at that, he makes the lightest scones ever!
10. Do you have any pets?

We have two Bunnies, both came to us 3 1/2 years ago, Splodge is on the left with the black ears and we think she is 7 possibly 8. She is Mummy to Nibbles on the right with the brown ears who we think is 6 possibly 7. They were adopted bunnies and we don't know their history. Splodge is getting old bless her and has a growth on her chest which is being monitored by the vets. We didn't name them, they came with those names although Nibbles is a very accurate description of her personality!

We also have two guinea pigs. Betty Bobbins Boop is on the left (fondly known as Bet Badette or Bet Bet). She is three years old and has cataracts so is partially sighted. Bay Cupcake Bumble Bee is on the left with the big white stripe and gingery bits. She is one year old and we bought her as a mate for Betty in July 2013 when Betty lost her husband Bertie Bassett to old age.

11. Who is the last person you spoke to?
My Dad, he phoned as I was writing this, before that it was the lady at the post office, before that it was the Vet as Betty is poorly and before that it was Mr B.

Pay it Forward...

I had never heard of this before so of course I looked into it, why wouldn't I! And on this site there is a little bit of a debate about the rules as it has morphed over time! So I am actually going to manipulate the rules a little bit because I have to say, I don't read all that many blogs so I don't have 11 that I could nominate and I have no idea about their readership either soooooo..... I am just going to nominate these people and if and when I think of more I will add them in too!: 
Gin and Cake - Fashion, Beauty & Lifestyle
Georgie@Home - Filofax, Stationery and General crafts
The Cazz Bar - Bespoke handmade greetings cards
The Desk of Adam - Filofax & Stationery
Helen Lindop - Business e-courses
