Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

And here’s seven things about me that you might not know: OMG! What to reveal?

1. I’m a carboholic! There I’ve admitted it! I love cookies and cakes and pies, along with pasta, rice, and potatoes! But am not a fan of potato chips or ice cream. Go figure!

2. I’m a neatnic I can’t stand clutter. I figure there’s a place for everything and everything has it’s place and if it doesn’t, well then I don’t need it. 🙂

3. I’m open minded, there isn’t much a person can say or do to offend or shock me. And everyone has a right to believe in who they are and be who they want to be. I might not always agree with your POV but I will listen and respect it.

4. I’m a hand crafter from way back. Knitting, crochet, plastic canvas and even some woodworking. I also custom design gift baskets and party sets.

5. My favorite author is Stephen King, but I don’t watch his movies.

6. I love music. My favorite singer is Ozzy and I even got to meet him last year at his book signing and he talked to me! Talk about being on cloud nine.  And while I’m on the subject of music, (This is where I lose followers 🙂 I’m not a Beatles fan even though I know most of the words to their songs.

7. And last but not least, I’m one of the rare few that will tell you, “I never even considered becoming a writer and just started writing a year ago this month and have fallen in love with it.


  1. Hi Karen. Congratulations. You so deserve this award. Thank you so much for nominating me. I am truly honored. Just yesterday, I was in the middle of a mental crisis because work was interfering with my writing time and I wasn’t sure if this was all worth it. Your support and the award reminds me that it is. Thanks again.


    • You are so welcome. I’m glad you aren’t going to stop writing. It is worth it! I hope today and the rest of the week is much better for you.


  2. Karen, how very kind of you to nominate me. Thank you so much. As I always say about blog memes, the most important thing I learn is about the person who gives it to me. What? Not a fan of Beatles? Ha! I understand. There’s so much music out there I like, but don’t need to be a “fan” of the musicians. Thank you for including me in your fine list, some of whom I know – others I ‘ll have to check out.

    FYI, here is something I wrote sometime ago to acknowledge all the wonderful people who’ve given me awards – thanks again, eden



    • You’re welcome Eden, you’re blog posts always inspire me. Yeah well the Beatles Hmm, I’m more of a Rolling Stones Kind of girl! Haha!


  3. Karen, please forgive the belated response, but thank you so much! 🙂
