Honest Scrap Awards!
Thank you Sara for awarding me an 'Honest Scrap' Award! It gives me the kind of boost that is very much needed on this shockingly autumn-like spring day...
The game goes like this:
1. Pick 7 or so blogs that make you happy
2. Let them know and post their names on your blog.
3. List at least 10 honest things about yourself.
My recipients are:
Marika, of Marika's Jewellery
Jenny, of Jenny Karlsson Design
Wendren, of the Wren
Erin, of A Dress a Day
Jo, of Glassprimitif
Kelly, of Backward Glances
Natasha, of DoodleStar, at ThursdaySweetTreat
but also at Creative Nachos
(no! I'm not cheating - both her blogs make me happy!)
Why? Because these creative blogs brighten my day whenever I visit them - honest!
Here's what honesty dictates, today...
1- Even though I work constantly — what with a very, very full-time day job and this my crafty venture — I am lazy by nature.
2- I believe that there is such a thing as truth, and one truth only, however complex, even though I know so little of it.
3- I find it less of an effort to stick to the truth — this is why I only lie when it's worth the effort. And it most often is not. People who lie out of cowardice are not worth much effort either, I think.
4- I lie very seldom — but I can do it seamlessly. ;-)
5- I once took acting classes. Real ones.
6- Balance is not my forte. Neither are extremes — or rather, I always need to consider both of them to achieve my own peculiar kind of balance.
7- I have nothing but contempt for terrorists, as well as for all the petty bullies of this world.
8- I hate violence — mostly because I am scared of my own potential for it.
9- I like a compliment.
10- I love a friend.
