That a Gold Star, not a Zit, on my Forehead!

Guess What! I have been awarded a little prize from my friend Athena over at Experiments in Authenticity!
Kinda cool to be given a pat on the sweet to hear nice words from your peers!

Along with this swell button, Athena requested I answer these 10 "get-to-know-you-better" questions! My understanding is that I must answer them and then choose 4 more wonderful recipients to award....but they won't be announced til the don't cheat and skip ahead...I'm not that!

Without further ado:

1. What is your favorite book of all time?

Y’know, I’m much more of a magazine person these days…Artful Blogging and Somerset Life are 2 of my faves right now. But there is a series of books by Kim Harrison about a Witch named Rachel and her adventures as a P.I. with her Vampire and Pixie partners…”Dead Witch Walking” and “Every Witch Way but Dead” to name a couple in that series….really great, entertaining reads!

2. Where in the world do you most want to visit? Why?

I’d love to see Tibet or Thailand. Those images of the sacred buildings covered in ancient tree roots looks like a Magical Fairy tale come to life…. The rainforests are supposed to be incredible there and in South America, also. I’d like to take a walk in one before they don’t exist anymore.

3. Craziest thing you've ever done?

Started Blogging…at least that’s what my non-blogging friends and family would say!

4. One celebrity you absolutely cannot stand?

Joan Rivers….She’s so rude and confrontational…and the overboard plastic surgery has made her look as ugly as her words :(

5. What do you most like about yourself?

My belief that I can find a way to accomplish anything I set my mind to....though I usually let everything else fall to the wayside til I accomplish it...hmmm, both good and bad.

6. What do you wish you could change about yourself?

Maybe I should change the above....naaaaa, then nothing would ever get done...haha. What I really wish I could do is just let go sometimes…not worry about what others think of me so much!

7. What job would you love to have for a day?

Dessert Food Critic! Do they have those?

8. What superhero power would you like to possess?

I’d love to be able to freeze time…oh, and have endless energy! (Minus the tights!)

9. What person (living or dead) would you most like to meet?

Ralph Waldo Emerson…just to hang out with him on Walden Pond talking about personal philosophy, Nature and daydreaming!

10. What was one of the best moments of your life?

Being pregnant was one of the best moments…a whole 9 month period of excitement, anticipation, new discoveries, feeling like you have a special purpose in life and bonding with the Hubby! I loved being pregnant. I was walking around with a “Little Buddy” each and everyday…and when you are showing, everyone smiles at you and is so nice! Now, I have an active 4 year old and the looks are very different…haha!

So now, to announce the Wonderful people I want to pass this award to (and learn more about in the process) yay!


She is constantly working to improve her talents and inspiring me to strive for better in the process...
all while being unapologetically herself!  Thanks Jamie!


She always has profound and nice things to say about the world around her and those in it! I've been fortunate enough to be on the receiving end of those words a few times :)


I'm just recently a follower of her blog...but I love her art and spirit!

Wow you look SO radiantly beautiful pregnant! I would love to experience that!

And I very much agree with you about Emerson! (Along with the rain forests of course. :-)

I'm so happy you found me in the blogosphere. It's such an amazing thing to create friendships through such distance. Thank you for reading me and for being my friend.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Congratulations on the award, I loved your answers! I wanted to let you know that I also have a Sunshine award for you on my blog! It is here if you want it:

Hope you're having a good weekend! ~Lauren

Marty said...

Cameron, thank you SO much! I am very grateful! I have answered your
questions on my blog :)

I'm happy to see we have some similar interests! I love the Stampington mags too. And the fact that you would be a Dessert food critic if you could? Too awesome.

Hybrid J said...

Though my blog is award free, I feel honour to receive the nomination. You're so sweet! :D

pinkglitterfae said...

hi Cameron, oh boy, am I ever late! I knew someone had given me an award and I completely forgot about it until now. Then I had to backtrack all my comments till I found yours, lol!
Ok, I like Peggys idea of answering some here's a bit about me:

1) What's the first thing you do in the morning?

I warm up some water, add a tsp honey and a tbsp apple cider vinegar. Been doing this for several years. Supposed to be good for keeping your body alkaline.

2) What inspires you the most?
this is tough to answer, I would say beautiful poetry, and songs with meaningful lyrics. I want to create art around words. I'm also inspired by other artists' work.

3) What's your secret to Happiness?

Remember to be grateful for everything in your life. It is a blessing to wake up every morning, and I say thank you whenever I am out walking.

that'll teach you to nominate me again, lol!
