Awards and Tagging...and such

During the time I have been blogging, I've had some generous people distribute awards and tag me...and I've been a little slack in responding!

Firstly, I was awarded the highly coveted Marie Antionette award. I believe it's for generally being awesome, generous and popular...or something like that! ;) I received this award from Anna-Karin from smabla, and Claire from ClairePearse - thanks ladies!

In order to distribute this award, there are some rules to follow:

1. Please put the logo on your blog.
2. Place a link to the person from whom you received the award.
3. Nominate at least 7 or more blogs.
4. Put links of those blogs on your blog.
5. Leave a message on their blogs to tell them.

And my nominees are (in no particular order):
Penny from PocketCarnival
Fran from lyptis
Carley from VanillaPixie
Mich from michvanetta
Alanna from Bobishi and Suki-La
Leanne from Rainbow Revolution
Chrisy from Sophism Press

I also have received some "One LovelyBlog Awards", the most recent being from Leanne from Rainbow Revolution - thank you Leanne!

I also would like to pass this on to the following inspirational bloggers:

Gaby from Spokes 'n' Daggers
Sheela from Eclettica
Julia from Drawn to the Sea
Jo from GemHeaven
Ginger from MsBelle
Erin from InnerEarthSoaps
from i♥make-up

And finally (phew!) I've been tagged by numerous bloggers, some of whom are Fran from lyptis, Michelle from gypsyrosedesigns, Tiffany from Owl and Fox, Pippi from Under the Shade of a Bonsai Tree, and Carley from Vanilla Pixie. The rules seem to vary for this one, but I'm going with the following:


1. Mention the name of the person who tagged you.
2. Complete the lists of 8 Things.
3. Tag 8 bloggers of your choice by listing
their links in your blog.
4. Let them know that they have been tagged!

I enjoyed reading about the things that you want to do and I have no doubt that they'll happen...gosh I bet you're dyin to get the move over with...such a pain aren't they...wish you lived around the corner from me so that we could go running together (you'd have to nag me into it...and maybe ditto)!
