Grab your sunglasses…

because I am now the recipient of a very bright, very shiny award:

Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandments Award

Thank you to winloseordraw for selecting me and my little blog!

Now, on with the show:

“I am certain that Mrs. Sparkly, a woman of high expectations, commitment and integrity would agree with this approach. She is notable, respected in her own community and likely to be peering down upon us; possibly spell checking and taking notes that feed into a mammoth government information data collection system (MGIDCS). She may have been recruited because of her discretion and integrity even behind closed doors.

The rules of engagement are:

Ten Questions must be answered with complete honesty or Mrs. Sparkly will find you. Mrs. Sparkly – we love you. We Do! Manners and behaviour, words beyond reproach … Then tag five other people.”

The Ten Commandments

1. Describe yourself in seven words.

Me = mellow artist who married a writer. :)

2.  What keeps you up at night?

New creative ideas.

3. Whom would you like to be?

I’m pretty happy with being myself. I know that who I am changes all the time, and that has been a fun journey for me so far. (For instance, I used to not really exercise. Not so, anymore. Victory!)

4. What are you wearing now?

A pretty sundress in a kind of coral color. It’s a hand-me-down from my mom…but it is an awesome dress! Also, my glasses, my wedding ring, and about fourteen band-aids. (I tripped while running and scraped myself up pretty bad. Luckily I don’t injure myself that often.)

5. What scares you?

I would say, I’m afraid of frittering my life away on things that don’t matter. So, I try to spend as much time with loved ones as I can, and focus on activities that bring me joy and meaning.

6. What are the best and worst things about e-logging?

Best: Sharing myself with others, and forming a connection.

Worst: How much time it can gobble up, unexpectedly.

7. What was the last website you looked at?

My email account. (Sorry…pretty boring, though I do my share of web surfing.)

8. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?

It would be to relax and be OK with making mistakes. I can get too caught up in making something perfect, and that is a shame… because we all know nothing is perfect.

9. Slankets, yes or no?

Well, I am humored by this name and product, but I’m going to have to say no. They’re ridiculous. I mean…they make you look like a giant infant!

10. Tell us something about the person(s) who tagged you.

The blogger behind winloseordraw is an art student, fond of tea, biscuits, and drawing. I am a former art student, but still love tea, biscuits (or, I assume cookies here in the USA) and drawing! Check out the blog, there is fun art on there! Also, the writer recently finished a dissertation. Congrats!

Five alphabetically hand-picked recommended posters:

If you read this, then you better check out both the people who tagged me and also these five recommended sites. If not, I’m sure Mrs S will take you to task. You have been warned!

  1. Yes! So relieved that dissertation is over! Thanks for the lovely description. I’ll go have a look at these blogs :)

        And you are most welcome! Thanks for the award. It was a fun post to make.

  2. Thanks so much for this Sarah. I’m sorry I’ve taken so much time to get back to you. Coincidentally I’m also an artist who married a writer :)

      You are so welcome, no worries! Wow- thanks for letting me know about that. It’s great to find kindred spirits out here in the blogosphere :)
