The Liebster Award... (It's a Blog Thing)

So this morning I recieved an email from the lovely Tash at Gift Grapevine, nominating me for the Liebster Blog Award, along side 4 other bloggers. Thank you so very much Tash, I feel so happy to know someone other then my mum is reading and enjoying my blog, and considering I only started this blog a short two months ago.

For everyone, The Liebster Blog Award is given to bloggers, by fellow bloggers. A virtual high five, a way of recognising your blog and a way to connect and discover other amazing blogs out there.  

There are a few rules that come with this nomination;

1. Link back and recognise the blogger who nominated you. 

2. Answer ten questions given by the nominator.
3. Nominate ten other bloggers for the award.
4. Create ten questions for nominees to answer.
5. Notify your nominees.
6. Get an award button and display it proudly.

Ok well here I go, my ten questions from Tash (Gift Grapevine);

1. Name something you cannot live without?

Ok something, not someone.... My camera! I don't go a day without using it. Ok the same could be said about my phone too. But definitely my camera, couldn't go a day without snapping happy snaps. 

2. What's one of the scariest things you've ever done?
Childbirth! it would have to be the scariest thing in the world the first time you ever do it. Actually even the second time was scary.

3. Finish this sentence - I really need to......

Fold the dam washing! Never-ending story... Right!?

4. Favourite toy as a child?
Toy, I don't really remember a favourite. I use to really love riding my bike, probably up till the time I fell off and broke my arm (bone came out and all..totally gross) 

5. Favourite book as a child?

Goosebumps Books

6. First album/cassette/CD you ever bought?

I'm not sure if it was my first cassette, but I remember getting 'Diesel' (or Johnny Diesel he was know as then). Or maybe it was Kylie Minogue 'Do The Locomotion'.  

7. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Alaska! Alaska! Alaska! maybe one day I'll get there. 

8. Do you like to plan things out in detail or are you spontaneous?

On my day to day life with the kids at home I'd say spontaneous but anything away from home is usually planned, has to be right? with kids everything need some sort of organisation.

9. Who is your favourite person/organisation to follow on Instagram?

Sophie_Vine from The Block! love her style and Jayde from Little Paper Lane she is hilarious.

10. When not blogging, what do you do for fun?

Markets! I love to go to a good market, if my hubby would let me I would go to one almost every weekend. And painting but thats a rarity these days, must make the effort to do it more.

Alright here are my nominees. Please click the links and head over to check them all out, because they are all fabulous. I have cheated like Tash and only nominated five. 

Thank you again Tash for your nomination, its been a pleasure participating and discovering more awesome blogs.

Fun With Pom Poms // Lets Make A Cactus...

Seriously! How much fun are pom-poms? It doesn't matter if you're five or eighty two it's something you can make and once you've mastered the basic pom-pom you'll be able to knock this bad boy up in no time.

You're going to need a few things...
One medium sized green pom-pomOne small sized pink pom-pomOne medium sized brown pom-pomScissors Glue (I highly recommend using a hot glue gun, much easier and less messy).Cardboard egg container (to use one cup section as the cacti's little pot). Some Paint (I used gold spray paint).

Firstly cut and trim one egg cup section from the carton. Paint your egg cup container 'Pot' and leave it to dry. It should be dry by the time you have finished cutting your cactus into shape.

Make your three different pom-poms in the colours and sizes needed. (Make sure you leave the tied pom-pom strings through the centre of the pom-poms long, you'll need these to tie your pink and green pom-poms together). 

The trickiest part …
