The One Lovely Blog Award Entry

Hello everyone! This week I thought I'd do something a bit different to my usual post since I've been nominated by Anael (click to see her blog) for the One Lovely Blog Award. I'm sorry that I'm not doing a tutorial or sharing my recent creative projects, but I've been busy recently with revision and my school art project so it's great that I can show you my entry for the award this week. In two weeks time, I'll be back to normal with an arty post!

The rules are:
1. Compose a post based on the award. 
2. Nominate up to fifteen bloggers. 
3. Share seven facts about yourself.
4. Inform your nominees about their nomination.

So here are the 7 facts about me:
  1. I love to watch comedies (TV series and seasons) in my spare time, in fact I love to put them on whilst I do some art or write a letter to someone! My favourite is 'Friends' but I also love 'Miranda' and 'Roseanne'
  2. When it comes to films my preferences are split in two! On the one hand I love to watch typically 'girly' films such as rom-coms and musicals like 'Grease' and 'Mamma Mia'. But on the other hand, from time to time I like to watch horror movies and action movies. I guess that's a little strange liking films that are so opposite but perhaps I just love films in general! Ooh and I love a good ol' Disney film!
  3. My favourite book series is Ruby Redfort by Lauren Child; I've read her (Lauren Child's) books ever since I was little starting with Charlie and Lola, then Clarice Bean and now Ruby Redfort. I've finished the last book in the series now! I think I'll re-read them at some point.
  4. I don't go to any clubs outside of school, but inside the school day, I go to an art club and a reading club. At the moment I'm taking part in the Carnegie award (in the book club) which this year is supported by Amnesty international so all the books have the theme of human rights. I think my favourites so far are 'Salt to the Sea' and 'Bone Sparrow'.
  5. I'm obsessed with stationery, particularly washi tape at the moment is the which I keep buying more of! But anything like pens, pencils, scissors, sticky notes, rulers, rubbers, washi tape, stickers etc I'm all over!
  6. My favourite places to shop are: Paperchase, LUSH, Accesorize, The Body Shop and The Range (the Arts &Crafts section).
  7. I'm also a little bit (OK very) obsessed with pineapples and watermelons (and the odd strawberry or two hehe). I don't really mean eating the fruits (although that's nice too) but I mean decorating with pictures of the fruit. I have notebooks, sticky notes, bunting, clothing, you name it-all covered in fruity patterns. 
I'd like to nominate:
  • 5StarArtists (AKA Kenza365)
  • RosieMaeAroha
  • PinkSmartiesBlog (AKA Marti)
I would nominate Beth May as well but she's already been nominated.

Don't worry if you don't have time to make this post or don't want to or aren't active anymore, I don't mind if you don't enter. But I hope that you have fun if you do enter! Once again thanks for the nomination Anael!

Over to you...
Have you ever been nominated for a blogging award? What was your experience? Let me know below in the comments. If you weren't nominated for the award, why not tell me a few facts about yourself in the comments instead?

PS: Aargh technical issues: why won't the picture show up central and why is the text highlighted white?!

PPS: Do you like my Summer background-I think it's a bit too busy but oh well. I drew the pineapple and banana leaf myself but the flower is from Pic Monkey. Thoughts?
