Ill keep posting on how I am getting on with the crafting.......
Say hello to my kitten Truffles.....doesn't he look cozy all settled in amongst my stitching? So peaceful and rested not a sound would disturb him? ............ok, I cant do it.I am having you on! He is mine he's called truffles.....but he's not real! He's fake, a pretend pussy cat. He's made of card board or paper, with really soft fake fur. My parents brought him home the other week as a gift for my home! I wanted a cat but I am renting so no pets allowed........don't you just love him? ahhhhh unconditional love!
Now on to the Name Game. I am still very new to blogging/games and awards etc. But I was tagged by my friend Allison over at My Cozy Home for the Name Game .......
Here are the rules: Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog post containing your own middle name game facts. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
Here are mine..... I suddenly realised how long my name was!
P - Presents/parcels. I enjoy buying gifts for family. Trying to find something they will love and wrapping is the main reason why I chose presents. If W was in my name the word would be 'Wrapping'. I love to wrap parcels, finding gorgeous wrapping paper, carefully wrapping and adding gift tags, then at Christmas arranging the pile of pressies in a pretty arrangement is just something I love! I don't see my pile of parcels before Christmas morning and I try to keep them secret from my family, the anticipation of my family's face at the lovely arranged parcels is wonderful. The pleasure something small can bring..... from the heart and wrapped with love is just pure happiness.
R - Rain. When I was young I used to sit at the back door on a little stool with an umbrella watching the rain. I still watch the rain today, it feels so refreshing, the fresh smell a rain fall brings. To simply enjoy nature is such a joy.
I - Inspiration. I find many things to be inspired by, blogging is one of the new things to inspire me. Searching for new loves, such as hobbies, information. Sometimes something finds me then I am hooked and inspired to learn more! One small thing can open a whole new world.........
S - Scented Candles, these play a large part in my life, for the past 3 years I have been buying Yankee Candles, they set a mood, change a mood and create such a cozy atmosphere, and make wonderful gifts. My home would not be a home without these little joys. When I awake I light one, and in the evening I set the lights off and enjoy the glow......
C - Cake decorating. This is my hobbie and my profession. I spend my free time trying new recipes, making models, decorating cakes just for fun, searching for new ideas, decorating books, baking for family. This subject takes up most of my life in one form or another. and I love it!
I - Imagination. I was always told I have a 'good Imagination' and I tend to agree! Sometimes its a good thing, like reading a good book, but not so good with scary movies!
L - Lights. I have to mention Christmas tree lights in this letter. I have really fond memories of our tree growing up, a warm house, food, family and little lights glittering on the tree. If you squint at them they all blur into a wonderful mass of colour. The lights reflect of the tree baubles, some even play music! and all this creates a very warm memory.
L - Lisa is my first name- I read somewhere that 'lisa' means a 'searcher of knowledge'. I believe I do in any way I can every day. My word was also going to be 'Learning'
A - Arts and Crafts. These words fill my mind and most of my life. Finding inspiration, hobbies, work, and filling any moment I can with anything that relates to this!
