I've been tagged

I've been Tagged by Caroline at Crafted Gems and the rules are as follows:

1. Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by including links to their blogs.

4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs.

Okay now 7 things about me - not sure if I can come up with seven LOL, however those that know me will know that once I start talking........

1) I love chocolate, I'm not particularly fussy, it doesn't have to be "good" chocolate. Mainly chocolate on its own without added extras but I do have a penchant for praline seashells and I used to love Spiras. If I am having a bad day then yes I do reach for the chocolate

2) I'm a sorter outerer, if someone has a problem I have to come up with a solution - it's instinctive.

3) I am a bead horder - I have far more than I know what to do with and I still keep buying more!

4) I am Cornish born and bread, but don't like clotted cream, will only eat my mums' saffron buns and didn't really enjoy pasties until I met my hubby - who is from Essex. He and my son LOVE them though.
5) I have a degree in Physics and I used to teach it (all boys school up to A-level - fun :)).
6) I'm fairly messy, but my wardrobe is very organised with my clothes all neatly folded on piles of t-shits, jumpers, long sleeve jumpers etc. You can get far more in if they are folded on shelves!
7) I love cooking and baking. I used to belong to WI country markets and sell cakes through them. Unlike the stereotype, I was under the age of 30 at the time!

I hope those facts are interesting enough? Can I add another? I can't get my blog to edit correctly...all those extra spaces and gaps are meant to be there - honest!

Here are the people I am tagging.

Laura Sparling - I think I bought one of my first lampwork beads of Laura and then was hooked
Angie Finn- I love her strawberry beads - I've just made a charm bracelet with a set - pic soon...promise.
Rachel Dawes - lovely organic beads and florals.
Barbara at Wildberry designs, she makes some lovely pearl bracelets, check out Alannah.
Craft Clare - I have yet to purchase any from Clare, but her beads are gorgeous and her recycled range is such a fab idea, brilliant keepsakes
Tina at So, whats new today, Tina makes lampwork beads and I love her serenity earrings.
Alison Perry, she has just prompted me into looking at doing more wirework - watch this space.
I've tried to find folks who haven't been tagged yet.....hard, I am a bit new to all this so don't read many blogs yet...there were lots of other people who I would of tagged but you have all been tagged already ;) Jo at Gem Heaven, Izzy at Flame and Glass, Brandi...and I could go on and on. If you don't already, why not try some of the blogs listed on the right, they make interesting reading.

This tagging is good fun - Number 3 was a bit too obvious though ahaha we all hoard beads :-)

Hi Chris, it is good fun isn't it, you do learn some intersting things. I know the bead thing was obvious so what about ...... I was born with dark hair. When it all fell out, it grew back ginger:) When I was about 18months, it all fell out again and now it is dark brown the summer I get natural copper tinges and yes I do have a fiery temper to match.
Any less obvious? :) I'm off to see what others are putting. I am a right nosy so and so LOL Vx

This tagging malarky seems fun seen quite a few blogs with it on. Also I like you tags 1,3,6 I can relate to them most.

OH my daughter was born with black hair ~ it fell out and went blonde ~ now is a dark reddy brown :)

Maybe a Cornish thing lol!!


Crafted Gems said...

what an interesting set of facts ( this coming from a fellow bead horder/ chocoholic/ tidy wadrobe person

BeadyPool said...

Does being Cornish explain why I am short as well ;)

Caroline - do you have to have all your clothes on the same sort of hangers? Mine are all wooden, I have succumbed to padded wooden for my woollens though now (I'm getting old LOL). This means all my clothes are the same level when I look in the wardrobe and are therefore "neat". I'm beginning to worry about myself....
