Sweet Surprise - My First Award!

I love surprises. Especially those sweet little ones, like reading through my Bloglovin' feed on a Saturday afternoon and to find out I've been awarded my first award!

The Versatile Blogger Award

The Versatile Blogger Award is an award to bloggers by bloggers. Each blogger that has been awarded, nominates up to 15 other blogs and then tells the person who nominated him 7 things about himself.

Madison (and her mom Amanda) from the sweet blog Growing up Madison nominated me, so first of all - thank you!

Now it's my turn to choose 15 other blogs to nominate. It's not an easy task, considering I have more than 200 blogs in my feed...

Pink When

Happy in Red

A Typical English Home

Tada! Creations
Tada! Creations

Suburbs Mama

And here are the 7 things about me:

1. I love sewing the most. No, wait, I love knitting the most. Or maybe crochet. No, definitely felting. No, no, pottery! Oh, well, I love them all!

2. I speak, read and write Chinese.

3. I hate fish. I think I only ate fish 5 times in my life...

4. When I was young, I wanted to be an actress. Then a singer. Then a lawyer. Then an interior designer. Then an anthropologist. Then a writer. Then a toy designer. Then what?

5. I love traveling to new places with new cultures, new languages and new people. I almost always prefer to go somewhere new instead of going again to a place I've been to, even if I love this place.

6. I moved 19 times since I was born. I counted.

7. One day, if possible, I want to live on a desert island with the man and the kids.


  1. You're so welcome. We love reading about your craftwork although we're technically craft challenged. :)

  2. Congrats on the award! I moved many times when I was small too. Thanks for the insight into yourself!

  3. Congratulations on your blogging award. That's incredible that you moved 19 times in your life. Did you ever live in Asia? I lived in Hong Kong for about 7 years with my family and absolutely loved it.

    1. I have lived in Asia! We lived in Taiwan 2 years then in Shanghai 6 years. I love HK!!!

  4. Tal! That is so awesome! I am so proud of you! I am going to be taking a peek at the other bloggers... I'm sure I'm going to be following another 15 LOL.

    Thanks :)

    1. Thanks Shay, I'm sure you'll love the other blogs, they're all so creative and inspirational!

  5. Thank you for the nomination and congratulations on yours! I am soooooo impressed that you moved 19 times and are still sane. I've moved 12 and most days I have no clue as to who I am anymore. Good thing we don't have to move planets, just countries, states and cities, huh?

    1. Thanks! I'm not sure I'm sane... :)

      Thanks so much for stopping by, I just LOVE your blog, you're so creative :)
