I started this blog at the end of August this year so it has been going a little over 4 months now. In this time I have received wonderful comments, both encouraging and sincere. Last week we reached over 1000 followers who now span over 80 countries around the world. How incredible is that?

Recently I have received a number of nominations for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award 


and hadn’t had the time to fulfill the obligations required of this. I thought I should do this before the end of 2012.

First let me thank the 5 people who have recently nominated me:

Abby at Artistic Milestone

Corinna at Cooking with Corinna

Eva at Life As An Adventure

The wonderful bloggers of Material Detox & Past the Plate

Check out their blogs, they offer creativity, wisdom, humor and adventure… what more could you want?
