"You like me! Right now, you like me!"

Ok, I'm not Sally Field and this is not the Academy Awards, but it still feels pretty darn awesome! Dawn over at WordsoGold just nominated me for the Kreativ Blogger award! Awesomeness! Thank you, Dawn.

So, I'm supposed to tell you seven things about me and then nominate seven more blogs . . .

Seven things about me:

  1. I am the same height as Ani DiFranco, 5'2"
  2. I really enjoy movies that feature animated rodents.
  3. I started sewing when I was 5, and I learned to knit in my teens. Now, I'm almost 40, and I haven't figured out crochet yet. It's like a mystery.
  4. I have never been able to make jell-o successfully gel, perhaps because I put too much fruit in it.
  5. I lived in Germany from the time I was seven until I was eleven.
  6. I love to travel - I've been to Germany (see item 5), England, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Canada, Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia, and Nepal, as well as all over the U.S. including Hawaii. Other places I want to go include Alaska, Turkey, Greece, Egypt, Morocco, Spain, France, and Belize.
  7. I love bridges. When I was little, I used to ask my grandparents to drive to the mall in such a way that we got to cross at least one bridge over the little river that ran through their Texas town. Now, I live in Portland, a town with ooodles of bridges!

Seven Creative Blogs I'd like to nominate for the Kreativ Blogger Award:

Alley Art Studio
The Last Bedroom
The Scarlet Letters
Sweet Sassafras
Rebel's Work in Progress
Judy Wise

Hee hee, I know how to crochet but knitting seems to endlessly leave my brain almost as soon as I have learned it... my mom has been teaching me since I was in the second grade...

Hello Bridget! I'm so glad I found your business card as I was cleaning this afternoon, because it reminded me to come check out your blog.

An unsolicited Jell-O suggestion: You probably are putting too much fruit in it - acid keeps the gelatin from setting. Another problem might be that the water is too hot - let it come to a boil, take it off the heat for maybe 15 seconds, then pour it over the magic powder. I'd start from the beginning, making just plain Jell-O, only using 3/4 of the water that the recipe calls for. That will help it set extra-firmly, so you can cut it into awesome hospital cubes.

Lovely to meet you on Sunday! Suej has told me emphatically that I need to come to one of your holiday card making parties.

Thanks for the nomination, Bridget. Sorry to be so slow in responding . . . can't make jello, eh? I think jello is overrated anyway.
