Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Thanks to Loren of The Costumer’s Closet for nominating me for a Very Inspiring Blogger Award!

To accept the award, one must:
1. Display the award and link back to the person who nominated you.
2. State 7 facts about yourself.
3. Nominate 15 bloggers for the award.
4. Notify the winners.

Okay, here we go…

7 Facts About Myself:

1. I hate nuts. All nuts. No, I’m not allergic. I just think they are abominations. Peanuts are the exception (except they’re not nuts, they’re legumes), but they can’t be in or on anything. Peanut butter ok, pb icecream etc. is gross.

2. I can’t whistle, but I can type over 100 words per minute.

3. I have a propensity for making up my own words and/or my own pronunciations.

4. When I’m in the mood, I count the number of dogs I see on a given day (and squirrels, cats, etc. but I don’t see them as frequently). No, I don’t have OCD – it’s an optional thing. It makes me happy. Dogs! Always having a good time! Yay!

5. I am very right-brained. I don’t do math (pattern drafting requires lots of calculators and talking out loud). When I was in high school, my math teacher wrote “Kendra has a very intelligent brain, but she refuses to use it for math.”

6. I don’t drink coffee or tea… and I get up & out the door in the morning under my own (non-caffeinated) steam. I do drink sodas, altho I gave them up for about 2 years.

7. I am terrible at remembering names but great at faces. I’ve probably offended many people who I’ve met multiple times because of not remembering their names. I now warn people right away when I meet them that I won’t remember their name… don’t know if it helps, but at least I’ve tried.

And my nominations – 14 instead of 15, in order to try to avoid duplications with other bloggers’ nominations:

1. Madame Isis’ Toilette

2. Wear When Why

3. Mode Historique

4. Stitcher Baby

5. Temps d’Elegance

6. Trystan’s Costume Closet

7. La Mesur de l’Excellence

8. Natalie Garbett

9. The Costume Parlour

10. Rococo Atelier

11. The Couture Courtesan

12. Au Temple des Modes

13. Mme du Jard’s Atelier

14. A Fractured Fairytale

    Thank you so much again! I feel very honored to be nominated by you because I’ve been following your blog for so long (ever since I got into 18th century, really, and that’s way before I started sewing)!

    Yay! I usually avoid these awards, but I realized they’re a good way to give a shout out to blogs we like… Since sometimes blogging can feel like shouting into a vacuum!
