7 people to carry this on...
I do not always have much success with this bit as I nominate people and only half ever take me up on it. So I am going to suggest that if you have your birthday in December (same as me) then please accept this award and tag. Please leave me a comment if you have a birthday in December and if it is the 23rd then I would love to hear from you!
Hope I have not bored you too much and I will be back tomorrow.
Many thanks for the lovely comments about my compact collection and I confess that I have two more on their way to me courtesy of Ebay. Naughty me! Will show them to you when they arrive.
Take care.xx
P.S I have added a comment about feelings towards tagging and awards that I have seen recently.

I'm an April-born, and I've already done this one! I was exhausted by the end!

It was much nicer to read yours than to write mine. Congratulations on the award, and thanks for sharing the info with us.

Congratulations on being tagged. Love your 7 things to do before you die - I can identify with those. I'm a May birthday so I can't join in though. I've added you to my twitter people.

I have just read on another blog and a link blog about hating tagging and associating them with chain letters! Is this a widespread feeling? I had tagged one of them and now wish that I had not. I feel that if you wish to do it fine, if not also fine. I do not always pass it on specifically sometimes I do. I like to pass awards on partly because it is nice to be thought of and partly because they add colour to my blog! A recent award I was given I actually changed its use so that I could pass it onto my followers to say thank you. Some have accepted, some have not again that is ok. I, on the other, hand, I like them! I like being thought of by others, that they like my blog enough to pass anything on as there are so many to choose from but they still picked mine. I choose to take part in the spirit that it is all intened. For fun!! I do not see it as an infringement of my privacy, a chain letter obligation otherwise something foul will happen to me nor do I feel bullied into doing it. I CHOOSE TO! This is a craft blog run by a 38 year old secondary school teacher and this is a bit of fun. So I shall post anyhting that is given to me, I will take part and thank those you considered me and offer it to others but I will not nominate any more. I feel that the cooments left about my tagging and tagging in general was worse than any tag I could have passed on and it is a shame that this blogs feelings on tagging happened to have my blog name in the same sentence. Great.
I may put this as a post when I can. xx
