? Well I dont quite know how this happened..........

Okay my last post had a lot of hits, and I would like to thank all of you who have been kind enough to leave messages. If you do know any of my family, please dont mention that post will you, as I made the mistake of admitting to FG that I had posted it, and ended up giving her a full explanation, which ended up  with me crying for quite some time, not because she was mean, but she asked questions that I didnt want to particularly look at! Its not something I have explained to family members as I dont feel they need to know, basically. Leave them in peace, without worry. Oh and the lady with 4 EDS children? Well lets put it this way........NOW School is listening!!!
While I was posting, and since, I have again been honoured by some lovely Ladies.  One is by a Lady I respect and admire, who has a cracking sense of humour, and if you have been to Craft shows here in the UK, you probably have seen her.........Well its very hard to miss her really!! She dresses as a Bee!
Deb  of  Debbees Cds, and Debbees Crafting Corner has awarded me the..............
 Which is rather Amazing really!!!

I like Debbees Cds anyway, and was lucky enough to win the Challenge for January, if you fancy a monthly challenge with everything provided for you, then I would suggest popping over Here. I won a CD of my choice which is what I have been Making my Easter cards from recently.
So to the Liebster Blog award has rules..........Easy ones, and nice ones!!
The rules say: "I must pass on the award to five other people, who's blogs have inspired me. 
It also needs to be someone who has less than 200 followers.
Put a comment on their blog, so that they know about it.
Link back to the person who gave me the award and thank them.
Post the award on my blog."

So now came the hard part.......who to pass the award onto? Some people whose blogs I like have tons of followers so that ruled them out. Only half the list to go, so how do you decide? After much umming and Ahing, I have chosen:

and finally but not last, Jo at http://jofirthyoung.blogspot.com/

Each of these ladies is very individual, and as you look through their blogs they have diverse Talents and abilities, truly inspirational, if I ever get round to coming out of my comfort zone! Ladies you do deserve this award, xxx

Another surprise which Gob smacked me was this award.....

From the ever wonderful Linda Simpson, a very Talented lady who's work you will have unknowingly seen on Create and Craft, and at the Craft Shows.
This award comes with its own set of rules, and its own page, here are the rules:
"If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award.
  •  Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  •  Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself."

Hello Lou, many thanks for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger award - it was very kind of you to think of me. I'm afraid I've been feeling a bit ropy this last couple of days so it may be a little while before I can do my bit and pass it on ... I hope you understand. Thanks again, Elizabeth x


Oh wow. A very ungentle reminder that while we merrily blog and chat away with our friends on the internet we really have no idea about each other, other than what we choose people to see.

Thank you for the award. I do WOYWW because I like comments and generally people don't comment and I am not one of the very popular WOYWWers but I love crafting and I love writing and if I can inspire at least one other person it's worth it.

I am sure you have given an insight into your life that you would rather people don't focus on, but awareness about all the different things which affect people is some of the battle and can only be a good thing.

Hope this week is a good one and that your daughter gets the support she needs.

Cooo, thank you so much for thinking of me. I am in a bit of a daze anyway as we are staying at Lisa's every night this week and the kiddies are 'very chatty'. Does this mean I can use the Liebster Blog button on my blog? And do you want to know 7 things about me? I hope this is a good week for you.
