Kirsty Girl Features: Stamping Still & Desire Empire

I have been nominated for my first ever blog award!

By none other than my gorgeous Mummy! Yay! Thanks Mum. Haha. Apparently now I have to tell you 8 things about myself that you might not know. Scary!

1.  When I was a little girl I was obsessed with witches!

2.  Now that I’m a big girl I love mermaids!

3.  Cookie and Chicken, my two wonderful little sisters, are my best girlfriends.

4.  I taught my Mummy how to blog.

5.  For my birthday I am getting a mandolin off the beautiful Andi!

6.  Over the course of a very long time I plan to be able to skateboard and surf.

7.  Even though I want to, I know deep down I wouldn’t make a good mermaid because though I adore them, fish scare me.

8.  The average age people assume I am is 16.

Yay! All finished!

Now I have to nominate 8 bloggers to pass this lovely blog award to! So I nominate those who joined my first ever linky party! Which you can still link up to here.  Thank you! You’re all so very Stylish. I’ve also nominated a couple of favs!

Aren’t they gorgeous? Aside from just showcasing her cards, she also offers tutorials on different techniques and crafts. She is a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and loves her job.

If you get a chance please stop over and say hello at Stamping Still. You’ll be glad you did.

Desire Empire

For my next feature, I literally found this blog just this morning, as I was lucky enough for her to join my linky party, which is still open for entries here

Desire Empire, from Sydney, Australia, has been around for only 7 days! I’m so happy that I get to jump on the band wagon of this blog so early in it’s life! This blog is definitely destined to become a Queen in the blogging world. Go check it out!

I think this picture sums up my love for this blog perfectly! The gorgeous white jug, the vintage Coca-Cola tray and the hanging surf board, what more could you want?

Please join my linky party while it’s still open! You may be my next feature!

    Thanks for the nominations, once again. I have nominated my 8 and hope you will have the time to peruse them.

    ALSO: just and added thank you for the nomination and the linky party. It was a couple of things together, which includes you, that gained me more than 10 followers this past week. I have struggled just to get into double digits for 2.5 years, so I really appreciate your effort in this.
