Stylish Blogger Award


Thank you to Alison Solven ( for nominating me for the stylish blogger award.  I appreciate the kudos considering I've only had my blog up and running for a VERY short time.

So, part of the Stylish Blogger Award is to share 7 personal things about myself .... here goes ...  

  1. I have been doing crafts since I was about seven when my mom taught me how to knit.  I always have something on the go and over the years have tried many different crafts.  Being creative is a passion and I am always trying to learn something new.
  2. I'm afraid to fly!!  I suffer from motion sickness and the idea of getting on a plane and being stuck there for several hours scares the heck out of me.
  3. My given name is Laura ... but no one calls me that.  My grandfather and dad called me Tiger.  At school and work, I was called Laurie.  And some of my friends and family call me Loll (which is the moniker I use to sign my crafts).
  4. I love to garden.  Lilies are my favorite flower (and pink is the best color!).
  5. I worked for 30 years as an administrative assistant.  Two years ago, my job was eliminated and I retired, even though I'm WAY, WAY too young :)  Now, instead of working, I spend most of my day in my art studio playing - so much fun!! :)
  6. I have always lived in the Lower Mainland.  I was born in New Westminster, grew up in Burnaby, and have been living in North Delta for the past 15 years.  I love the Westcoast - it's an amazing and beautiful place!
  7. Another hobby of mine is baking and I've been doing that since my mom bought me an Easy-Bake oven when I was around 10.  Over the years I have accumulated many delicious recipes.  I'm thinking I should include some of them on the website ... hmmmm, I'm going to think about that.
Now, I am going to nominate my top seven blogs that I visit regularly (no particular order).  There are so many talented people on the net .... here's just a few ....
