Bring on the sun :)

I have been nominated for the sunshine blogger award by Holly Suzanne of the blog: life in relation to art.

Thank you very much for this πŸ™‚

Now the point of the award is for others to get to know you a bit better.Β  I have already done the answering questions thing for a previous post(ref: A game of tag) so I think I’ll skip that part although the people who I nominate are welcome to say a few things about themselves πŸ™‚Β  I know, I’m breaking the rules (naughty girl haha)!Β  I do like Holly’s idea of doing some art in lieu of writing points about oneself but unfortunately I do not have loads of artwork lying around and have to really be in the mood to create something so nothing new in the art scene (although you are welcome to check out the art I have already done)

So perhaps some pictures of some of the baked goodies I have made.Β  After all, I love cooking and baking so that really is saying something about me πŸ˜‰

And now, of course,here are my nominations for the award:

Thomas Rydder – a newbie but great to chat to πŸ™‚

Poetry of a madman – a lovely mix of poetry, prose and photographs

Mama Cravings – about being a mama really πŸ™‚

Author Jodi Ambrose – humorous, enjoyable short writing pieces

J R Barker – very interesting posts on writing

Dribbling Pensioner – one of my favourite blogs – great humour πŸ™‚

Emaginette – a very strong woman πŸ™‚

I hope you enjoy these blogs as much as I do πŸ™‚

These are called Koeksisters. They are a type of doughnut.

Have a sunny (even though it’s raining outside here) day!
