versatile me

Miss Katie from Katie's How To... found me through my feature on I ♥ Naptime, and she is SUPER sweet :)  Apparently, I'm versatile and worthy of an award!  Which means I should probably post more...

Here are the rules:

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award
2. Answer 10 questions
3. Pass it along to 7 blogs you've recently discovered and enjoy
4. Leave your recipients a note, telling them about the award

And the 10 questions are:

1. Why did you create your blog?
Which one???  I started the Summers Camp blog to keep in touch with family and friends :)  Beth's Mess because I (really) love (good) food, and The Stitchy Niche because I adore any/all kinds of stitching.
2. What kind of blogs do you follow?
I follow the blogs of family and friends, and a lot of DIY/crafty blogs.
3. Favorite brand of make-up?
If/when I wear any, Bare Minerals
4. Favorite brand of clothing?
Whatever I can afford ;)  But if I were rich, I would buy clothes from Anthropologie, J. Crew and Banana Republic.  Yeah, I've got expensive taste...
5. Indispensable make-up product?
6. Favorite color?
7. Favorite perfume?
I like the scents from Gap: Pink, Dream and Grass
8. Favorite movie?
Anything fantasy, because I'm a total nerd...  I'd have to say some of my favorites include Stardust and Coraline.  And The Nightmare Before Christmas.  I like strange.
9. What country would you like to visit and why?
The British Isles.  It speaks to my soul.
10. Would you rather forget to put mascara on one eye or forget blush on one side of your face?
Blush, for sure.  Because, I don't need any.  My cheeks are naturally rosy.  True story.

The 7 blogs I'm passing this on to in no particular order:

Thanks again, Katie!  And thanks to (m)any who continue to read my silly wee blog(s)...  Sometimes it's nice to have a voice in the world, no matter how small that voice or part of the world might be.  *B
