for those of you who might not know what this award is, lemme tell ya! it's basically a very cool way to learn of other blogs and a chance to spread the love, so to speak. and part of winning includes me sharing 7 things about myself...
now rosa had a wonderful idea of using photos to help share about herself, and i think i'd like to do that too. besides, it makes the whole post prettier :)
one - i learned recently that continental knitting vs. english knitting is also known as picking vs. throwing. i'm a thrower... but i also want to be a picker. it would probably make me a more efficient knitter. (yea, i think about that kind of stuff)
two - i bake all my own bread. not 'cause i feel i have to but 'cause i loove to. this includes bagels, and pizza too. and hopefully one day english muffins.
three - i only like dancing when no one is watching. but i secretly know that if anyone were to watch... i'd be really, really good.
four - i am a flautist. it's been a while since i've played regularly, but i used to play with a group in weddings and wineries. (i also used to sing alto in a quartet. and we sang a lot of a capella... so i couldn't fake it)
five - i would looove to learn how to spin. (totally not talking about the bike here... though, i could probably do that too) ;)
six - though i'm pretty rusty now, at one time, i was pretty good at speaking german, and french. and i miss it. a lot. i love languages... and actually got my TESOL certificate online. even with all the crazy grammar studies, i kinda liked it.
seven - i am happy. i really really am. i am a very lucky girl, living in beautiful british columbia, canada. i still love being married to my man, and look forward to a long life with him, i have the most adorable kiddo (yes a little biased.. but that's allowed), and i have the best friends a girl could ask for.... some of these people i know only online! but it's true. i really like this life that i have. it's a swell one :)
and i've also got to put in a little self promotion :) handmade for the holidays is less than 3 weeks away! i'm super excited about it, and a little nervous. it's my first market.. and i hope that there's traffic! regardless this is a great opportunity for me, and i can't wait to show you all pics!!!
