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.

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 again...in 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.

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

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....
