The Versatile Blogger Award

Good Morning all

The lovely Elaine Wheeler     http://wheelerscraftiness.blogspot.com/    who is a wonderful person and so extremely talented has been awarded The Versatile Blogger Award. It could not go to a more deserving or lovely person.


 Read her post her.     Elaine 

Elaine has selected me as one of the people to whom she wants to give this award. I am very touched and honoured that you thought of me, Elaine as I don't think I have been the best follower the past few days. I think perhaps, as someone who struggles with issues herself you are generous enough to see past that. Thank you very much for nominating me, Elaine. xx

"If you are nominated, you have been awarded the Versatile Blogger award". First, thank the person who gave you this award.

I was to list seven things about myself and I got a bit carried away (it is a nightmare being ill - emotions are all over the place) so I have edited a bit and wish I had edited it before posting!!
It is still a bit long but it has been a long day for me. You do not need to write this much.

I like movies
My two sons are grown up now, one is 35 and the other is 25;

I love animals
Craft and Art are my passion

Health and Disability issues are too many to list but a few things are
Myasthenia Gravis (neurological muscular) illness is not very well controlled despite high doses of Immunosuppressants which have their own set of fun side effects.
Several kinds of arthritis: inflammatory, osteo, +ve for rheumatoid, sjogrens disease,
pernicious anaemia, long term iron anaemia. Graves disease
Permanent autoimmune issues which have given so many problems Nothing I have is contagious or infectious.


I am 54 years of age, I am a tea addict, love movies and music wether Indie, Rock, Classical though not so much popular musical theatre. I love to walk and used to walk for miles but now I have not even managed out of the house in ages.

I despise all kinds of prejudice wether because of colour or race or age(to young or old), or gender or sexuality or religion or hair colour or eye colour or way of dressing or or or any kind you can think of. I honestly think that crafting people are among the least prejudiced and most good natured on the planet 

Despite all this I do have a sense of humour; I love to laugh so much so that once in hospital I was having such a giggle with one of the auxhilliaries that someone said you will get sick!!! That really made me laugh.

I made this way too long initially.  Elaine and Clare and others have opened up recently in a way I find hard to do and I got carried away I have now edited it and wish I had edited it before posting.

With Affection, Vee xx

  1. My word Vee, you have certainly written seven things about yourself and more.
    You are a true trooper Vee, you have a great personality and you posess the desire to keep going no matter what. That desire is such a great thing for someone who is going through so much in life Vee.
    I am so happy that you have a lovely family around you and thats important.
    Also Crafting is such a great way to forget for a short while and to have fun no matter what you are going through.
    Take care and keep positive.
    You are an inspiration.
    Hugs Elaine

    1. Dear Elaine
      I have finally managed to post my choices and I do not know how you managed it in one hour!! I also apologise for writing war and peace this morning - poor you!! I have now edited it a bit although still too long!! But hey ho. I just want to say thanks again for this. Vee xx
      PS I noticed that your blog link is not on the list at Crafty Bloggers Network - most people update on there if they have posted etc so I get messages into my gmail account to keep up with everyone. I can help with that if you like?

  2. Hi Vee, thanks so much for this, it really means a lot to me. It's really nice to learn a little more about you and I think it's good when people share a little of themselves on their blogs as it means you get to know them a little better. Sorry to hear about your health problems but I am so glad that you don't let it stop you. I really agree about crafters being a lovely bunch it doesn't matter what difference people have crafters just seem to embrace each other and their differences which is really lovely.
    Thanks again sweetie, will do a post in a little while

  3. Oh Vee, thank you so much for this award. I have read your list and we certainly have a lot in common and I do so agree about us crafters being the least prejudiced and good natured on the planet. We are also very kind hearted too.

    Thank you and I will post this later on today and of course think about who I am going to give this too.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    Hugs
    Linda xxx

    1. You are most welcome, Linda. I think you are right about having things in common. Sometimes when I see someone's creation and something pops into my head and if your comment is just above mine it is often what I was just about to say! So I change it in case they think I am not being sincere and just repeating!!lol
      All the best

    1. Lindsay, please take your time and enjoy it - don't think I am going to be checking to see who has posted when!! I found it great fun to get my choices sorted out but quite tiring as I wanted to be sure I had everyone's link right etc. xx

  13. Hi Vee, congratulations on receiving this award & thank you so much darlin for thinking of me. I loved reading all about you and you did not need to edit it, after all it is your blog!!!. I'm so sorry that you have so many health issues Vee. Life sucks at times but I guess we just have to make the best of it and try stay positive (although it is hard some days). I find there are so many crafter's out there with illness and disability so we all seem to have a lot in common. We do both seem to have a lot in common. So glad we found each other's blog. Love to the furbabies!!!. Big hugs Clare xxx

    1. Dear Clare,
      Thank you very much for your good wishes and you are welcome - of course I would think about you. I knew you would not mind sharing the award with your two lovelies as they inspired me too. Especially Simone coming back from her sore face. Thank you for posting her story. I am dying to see more of the squirrels too!! You do get a lot of hedgehogs!! They must know the best place to go and pass it on!!
      As for editing my post; I really needed to as it was very, very long. I felt sorry for Elaine she was amazing enough to nominate me and I give her all that. I am hoping I don't come across as moany, though I know I have a lot going on but my mood is actually more kind of amused - I get to the point that if I think about it it just seems so ridiculous that it is funny!! Yes, I think the crafting community have a lot of shared experiences and the nicest of people. Very best wishes to you and yours.
      Vee xx

    2. Hi Vee, I am back now but have to refuse your award unfortunately as a newbie blogger (but oldie cardmaker) It is too complicated and time taking for me to do all the stuff required. I did try to do it but it took so long and I never finished it plus two more people nominated me and I couldn't face going through it all 3 times!!!! sorry to be so pathetic :?
