Another Award! *gasp*

super-sweet-blogging-award21w6451I’ve just been nominated for the Super Sweet Blogging Award by Jackie over at Knitting With Heart, and let me tell you, what a wonderful surprise to find just after dinner!  Seriously, I’m grinning so wide right now it’s a wonder I can still feel my cheeks.  To not only have received the Liebster award last month, but now to have gotten this one….. it absolutely blows my mind.  I started this blog thinking that I would be one of the only people to read it; what a wonderful, uplifting feeling to know that not only do others read it, but they actually like the nonsense I write!  (Really, I should be banned from making blog posts at midnight when I’m sleep deprived.  Going back to some of those older posts are horrifyingly cringe-worthy.)  So thank you Jackie, from the very bottom of my black little heart.  ❤


Well, what would an award be without rules, right?  So… on to those!


Copy & Paste This Whole Post and Replace All Your Information — who awarded you, for example.

1. Thank the Super Sweet Blogger that nominated you.
2. Answer 5 Super Sweet questions.
3. Include the Super Sweet Blogging Award in your blog post.
4. Nominate a baker’s dozen (13) other deserving bloggers.
5. Notify your Super Sweet nominees on their blog.


1 – Cookies or Cake?
– I suppose that depends upon the cake being offered.  Usually I’ll go for a chocolate chip cookie, snickerdoodle, or white chocolate macadamia nut cookie over cake….. but if it’s German Chocolate cake?  Get out of my way before you get trampled!

2 – Chocolate or Vanilla?
– Vanilla

3 – Favorite Sweet Treat?
– Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups or Trolli Sour Brite Crawlers

4 – When Do You Crave Sweet Things The Most?
– I usually don’t crave sweets as I’d rather have salty snacks.  But every once in a while, I get a craving for candy… and it’s usually strongest when I haven’t had any candy or chocolate in a few days.

5 – Sweet Nick Name?
– Mom.  Or, if you’re one of my students, Mrs. Mommy.  ^_^


Now for the hard part.  So MANY of you are deserving of this award, and since I’m assuming that there are no tag-backs when nominating people, that means that I can’t include Jackie.


  1. Kais at Empress27
  2. Kate at The Polka Dot Room
  3. Small Girl – Big Crochet World
  4. Rachell at The Little Room of Rachell
  5. Vicky Myers Creations
  6. Mrs. B at Mrs. B’s Adventures in Crochet
  7. Mtetar at Projects by Mtetar
  8. Crochet Missy
  9. Craftaceous Period
  10. Avis at Oh Sew Tempting
  11. Wisher at Pretty Little Things in a Box
  12. Fiona at Cursing and Crafting
  13. Kim at Humor Happens

Congratulations to all my nominees; each of you has a unique perspective on things and wonderful ideas to share, and I never fail to leave your blog with a smile on my face.  So, thank you for being so wonderful, and thank you to Jackie once again for thinking of me and nominating me for this Super Sweet Award.
