Versatile Blogger Nomination


I was honored to see my name listed as one of Silvia's nominations for the Versatile Blogger Award! I have enjoyed Silvia's blog (SoapJam) since I first discovered it last year. She makes so many wonderful soaps, but her packaging is really amazing too and something I aspire to. Thank you Silvia for your naming my blog on your list! :)

Here are the rules for the award: 
VBA RULES: 
(Copied from versatilebloggeraward.wordpress.com)
If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award.
  • Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  • Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  • Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  • Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
  
My 15 nominees (I'm trying to not duplicate ones I saw nominated on other blogs):

















7 things about me:

I live in British Columbia, Canada, eh.

I don’t like Tim Horton’s coffee (I feel like a bad Canadian admitting that).

My favorite drink is a ½ sweet salted caramel mocha from Starbucks.

My favorite food is French fries.

When I was a little kid, we got to babysit 2 baby bear cubs overnight, they are cuddlier than you would think!

I once won $10,000 on a scratch & win ticket.

I was a competitive figure skater growing up.

    1. My dad worked in the forest and came across them. Their mom had died :( He was asked to care for them overnight until the proper authorities could pick them up. It was a once in a lifetime experience! :)

  3. I'm so glad Silvia chose to nominate you Cee (although it means I have to find another nominee now) because I love learning more about my fellow soaping bloggers.

    Don't feel bad about the Tim Hortons coffee, I think their coffee's for people who can't handle real coffee. The bear cubs must've been adorable! I hope they were relocated somewhere safe. Do you still skate, or are you too busy soaping?

    1. I can't wait to see your list Monica, it's really hard to pick...there are so many great blogs!

      Thanks for the pep talk about the TH coffee, I totally agree with your analysis...ha ha! If I recall correctly, the bear cubs were at a rehab facility until they were old enough to be released. I don't get to skate very often and when I do...well, let's just say it's not pretty....lol.

  5. Thank you for your kind words, Cee. I've been reading and following your blog since I began my soap journey. You are a great source of inspiration for me and your generosity in helping other soap makers is something I admire.
    Wow, Cee! You were a competitive figure skater? It's my favorite Winter Olympic sport to watch. And you won $10,000? Must be all that good karma you've sown. :-)

    1. You're most welcome Silvia, I've really enjoyed following your blogs too, and I've learned a lot and appreciate your willingness to share.
      When I look back, I wish that I had stuck with the figure skating longer, but it was a very hard decision at the time. I have great memories though :)

    You are so sweeet !!! THANK YOU SO MUCH, YOU MADE MY DAY!
    I would also like you to know that I admire all the work and passion you put on it.
    All people passionate about what they do deserve a prize every single day,to stimulate the creativity and quality, especially today in a human society that is losing the sense of real good things...
    Anyway,with your permission,I thank you again for this honor and I invite you and anyone interested in, to visit my blog where I posted some time ago ( what sweet times ) a few things about me, here:http://alegriamediterranea.blogspot.com.es/2011/07/versatile-blogger-award.html.
    Wishing you the best and a very happy day!
    With much Love and Consideration,Claudia.

    1. You are most welcome! We did take a couple of pictures, but I'm not sure where there are now, the only thing I remember vividly was their huge paws even though they were babies, and they had blue eyes!
