Versatile Blogger Award/International Women’s Day

Yesterday was International Women’s Day, and I won the Versatile Blogger Award. What is the connection between those events, you might ask? Well, as part of accepting the Versatile Blogger Award, I agreed to pass it on and link to 15 other bloggers. In honor of International Women’s Day, I am linking only to other amazing women bloggers. (Sorry, guys, I know some of you have really cool blogs, you’ll just have to wait for another time.)

First, the award.

Now onto the award. First, thanks to Betty Bead, aka BlackSheepBeadery, for nominating me for the award. Also thanks to NELdesigns, who also nominated me.

Next, according to the Rules

  1. Thank the person who awarded you and link back to them in your post.
  2. Tell 7 Random facts about yourself.
  3. Pass the award on to 15 new found bloggers.
  4. Contact each blogger you want to pass the award on to and let them know you’ve done so, and let the giver of your award know you accept it.

I am supposed to tell you 7 random facts about me:

  1. I just learned to touch-type Dvorak a few months ago, and I still make a fair number of mistakes. Which can be fairly amusing, since the Dvorak keyboard places the most-used keys next to each other. (fun becomes fin, or gun; love becomes live)
  2. I started several volunteer groups in college (and I doubt anyone who knows me is surprised)
  3. I have a dry sense of humor (but you knew that already, right?) :)
  4. I started Lizbeth’s Garden, my tassel-making (among other things) business because I couldn’t find fan pull tassels I liked at a price I liked, but I still haven’t gotten around to making any for myself
  5. I started writing better poetry after reading A Poetry Handbook by Mary Oliver
  6. I grow my own vegetables, and I have started leeks and celery for the coming planting season
  7. I have never been skiing.

And now for the nominations:

  1. Lemon Tree Tales
  2. Gus and Lula
  3. Uppercase Woman
  4. Kavita
  5. SassyBelle
  6. Queen of Creativity
  7. An Artist’s Journey
  8. Celebrating a Year
  9. signed…bkm
  10. Musing by Moonlight
  11. Jingle
  12. broken sparkles/Scent of my Heart
  13. Jessica’s Japes
  14. Cage Free Family
  15. Pretty Babies

Okay, enjoy reading these blogs from these amazing women. (You might think that is a random list, but they are all amazing. Really.)

    Am reading the Mary Oliver book for the third time. Fabulous. Check out “Nine Gates, Entering the Mind of Poetry” by Jane Hirshfield. I think you will like it. Never been skiing either ….

    Happy day! And thanks again, Morgana.
