Kreativ Blogger Award - long and boring ;)

Happy Sunday! I received an award from three of my sweet blogworld friends: Anita, Sanne and Sally. Thank you so much ladies!


There are rules attached to this one again. They are as follows:

1. Copy the award to your blog.

2. Link to the person who gave you the award.

3. Identify 7 interesting facts about yourself.

4. Choose seven other bloggers to pass this award on to.

5. Link to their blogs.

6. Leave them a comment to let them know about this award

So it is another award where I have to tell you 7 interesting facts about me! I really had to think about that for a while, there are no interesting facts about me and I already told you about a dozen not too boring facts... But here we go:

1. I did a lot of sports in my life. I started with gymnastics, then ballet, track and field (did that one for years and went to athletic contests every weekend), basketball (loved that one best, but got ligament ruptures two times and my Dad suggested it would be better to stop it) and as a grown up I practiced Traditional Shaolin Kung Fu (until I got pregnant)

2. I have curls. Lots of curls. I always loved them but always wanted to know how it feels like to have straight hair. Two years ago my coiffeur straightened my hair for the first time in my life - what a feeling!! Since then I do straighten them for special occasions - and realized that I only have photos of me with straight hair now, because I only get photos taken of me on special occasions :)

3. I love reading children`s books. Some of my favourites are: Anne of Green Gables, The Secret Garden, Matilda, The Big Friendly Giant

4. I am not able to keep anything in order. My crafting space is a mess. My documents are a mess. My wardrobe is a mess. My first intention every new year is getting better at it. It`s not working. I guess I have to live by Einstein`s rule...

5. I am afraid of the dentist. Although I never really had caries (or only a tiny bit) I am always afraid when I have to go to check.

6. When I was about 9 years old I startet getting spots all over my face and my back. When I was 13 years old braces were added to that. I was ugly and it really shaped me. Fortunately the braces were gone a year later and the spots were gone when I started taking the pill.

7. A fact I share with most of my crafting friends - I am a hoarder of supplies! Paper, stamps, flowers, buttons - have I mentioned paper??? I will have a give-away soon to not feel too bad about that fact!

If you made it through this post - thank you for your patience! If you weren`t given this award yet, feel free to grab it! Soo many of you already got it, so I wouldn`t know who to choose!

I have a card to share, but the light isn`t good enough to take a photo. I might be back later!
Thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Always interesting to read about blog friends! I can sympathise with the spots, mine were all down to hormones too! Jo x

How similar we are! I too am petrified of the Dentist, am a messy crafter and had/have spots on my back! The pill really helped but had to come off it now :o(

Love reading facts about you! I am a sports girl too!! My whole life until after college! I miss it!! I need the exercise but my body feels like it is 30 years older than it is because of years of sports damage! :)
