Well color me happy!

I am so honored and humbled to have been nominated for a Beautiful Blogger Award by Beccah at Nutmeg Knitter.  I am just tickled pink that she felt like nominating little ole me.  Seems like I must be doing an okay job of designing and writing this here blog if someone went out of their way to mention it!  Thank you so much Beccah!  From what I understand the rules are that I have to list 10 things about myself that you don't know and then nominate 10 other bloggers that I enjoy.  So here goes with my list of 10 little known facts:
  1. I can't stand mayonnaise.  The smell, the taste, the look of it, just makes me want to gag and I often do.  I am not sure why, but I think it may have had something to do with me finding out you could get food poisoning from if it was left out to long when I was a kid.
  2. I love horror movies in spite of the fact that I have very vivid and memorable nightmares.  When I saw Poltergeist for the first time I slept in my parents room for a week.  And when I saw The Ring I had nightmares for days and was convinced the creepy little girl was standing in front of me in the shower one time.  I never learn do I?
  3. The first concert I ever saw was Steppenwolf at the local county fair when I was in high school.  It was free with admission and I went with two of my best friends at the time.
  4. I have an alter ego, Kisa Vanyusha, you see I have been dancing as a gypsy at local Renaissance Faires with Tribe Roman Morga for 18 years now.  Makes that button on the left sidebar make more sense now doesn't it?
  5. I was born with hip dysplasia.  No, I am not part German Shepherd!  At birth my toes pointed in by 90 degrees as a result of this and I wore a variety of orthopedic shoes until I was 4.
  6. For some reason I am deathly afraid of deep, dark water.  Don't know why but I am.
  7. I am addicted to Coca-Cola, not the diet crap and most certainly not the P word, tastes like lemon to me (blech!), but the beautemous red can stuff is my hearts desire.
  8. I have competed in a rodeo.  It was during one of the summers I spent at my Aunt's house in Tehachapi and I competed in Horsemanship.  I would have won but I kept looking down to keep my hat from blowing off so ended up with a third place ribbon.
  9. I LOVE to read.  Unfortunately I don't get to read as often as I used to but I try to get in a little bit every day, usually at lunchtime.
  10. I am terrified to put my hand into the garbage disposal.  I always think of a certain New Twilight Zone episode where a very rotten kid starts to turn the disposal on while his fathers hand is stuck.  For some reason I am convinced the thing will tun itself on a la Stephen King while my hand is in there.
And here are my nominations for A Beautiful Blogger Award of their own, each one not only inspires with the authors writing/patterns/tutorials but the photography and design are lovely on each one:
  1. Marigold of Hideous, Dreadful, Stinky!
  2. Thea of Baby Cocktails
  3. Charity of Indietutes
  4. Hilary at The Yarniad 
  5. Ashley at Make It and Love It
  6. Kate at Tot Toppers
  7. Natalie at Daily Dose of Deuce
  8. Lisa at U-handbag
  9. Kelly at Drago[knit]fly
  10. Sew Much Ado
As a sidenote (and to toot my own horn a little bit more), I am also pleased to say my Liesel scarf won an Honorable Mention at this years county fair as I discovered on our trip there this weekend.  Maybe next year I'll do better, I am currently working on a beaded shawl that may just blow the judges away in 2011!


    1. Congratulations on the Beautiful Blogger and the scarf! You're on a roll!

    2. Congrats on the award for both your blog and scarf!!!

    3. Congratulations! I get nightmares from horror movies too, but I've learned and won't watch them! Just thinking about the Ring makes me shudder :D

    4. Those are 10 very excellent things about yourself. Thanks for the nomination too. Hehe. :)

    5. I have a very similar fear about our garbage disposal. I also hate to see anybody's hand in it and with you on the Ring, that whole bit about the girl climbing out of the television.... yeah no.
