Kreativ Blogger

The lovely Thea has passed a Kreativ Blogger award to me - how nice is that!? The hardest task though is to narrow down just 7 things I love so here are some that I thought I'd share that are beyond my obvious love of craft and handbags...

Family and Friends...
I am a very lucky girl to have such support around me - I wouldn't be who I am without my amazing Mum and Dad who have been behind me in my crazy plans to run a handbag business when I could be quite sensibly working my way up some corporate ladder somewhere! They were there when I was setting up market stalls at 5 am in the freezing cold when I started out 15 years ago and will still do anything for me today.

Plus of course this little business called Lyssy May would not function without the encouragement and interest of my friends - from those who've been there since day dot to those who have been customers or suppliers and are now very special friends. Above is one of my favourite pics from the best ever day at Lyssy May - the Think Pink party.


Here I am with a massive catch of the day. Be assured that all I catch is to eat and anything else is returned to the ocean to fight another day!

My travel bug has been kept in a cage for way too long - hopefully a nice little jaunt will be happening in the foreseable future. Above is a snap taken in a craft and trim store in Seville...heaven.

The smell that summer has arrived - fresh or in my mum's mango cream pie is best. All year round though I can get my fix through Weis bars (originating in my home town of Toowoomba).

Music...I love lots of music but I really love good old rock and especially Australian made music. Here is Bernard from Powderfinger at the Arena in Brisbane a few years back. My first love is INXS but don't get me started or this will soon become a Michael Hutchence tribute blog!

Afternoon tea ...
...or morning tea, or anything that involves tea and a yummy cake or biscuit. The lovely Shannon gave me the Frankie afternoon tea book for Christmas - it brings back the home ec student in me.

My most favourite thing to share with people is a good laugh (and I have been told mine is rather distinctive!). When its not coming from a joke shared I love throwing on some Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, 30 Rock, The Royale Family etc but the funniest person I know hands down is my brother - he is a wasted talent in the accountancy scene.

Well onto 7 creative types who I'd like to nominate to share their loves who have great blogs (apologies if this has already been bestowed or if you are not into this type of thing!)...

Very interesting. Just when I thought I was getting to know you, I am surprised yet again. Never would have thought you were the fishing type. I love reading peoples' lists.
