Finds and Friends: Thank You's and a Award.

I have a couple thank you's and a award to pay forward this Friday. First, a big long over due thank you to the ever multi-tasking and always generouse Lydia Kang at The World is My Oyster for the wonderful opportunity to win this...
...and a few other of it's deliciously wonderful smelling friends from...

I am LOVING the lavender soap. Thank you so much for the chance to enter your contest and congrats on making it past 300 followers. It was a wonderful prize. I am now no doubt hooked on the stuff!

Also, be sure to check out Doc Lydia's blog every Monday for Medical Mondays. Have a fiction related question regarding health and medicine, visit HERE and e-mail Lydia your question.

And a shout out and thank you to The Words Crafter over at The Rainy Day Wander, for awarding me The Bold Face Liar Creative Writer Award. I sort of hoping to get one of these. I love the concept. First, I am a wonderful liar. It's just true. But I have used it more for good and entertainment, I swear... *smirk* And second, I think a good fiction writer is a good liar. We fabricate stories around bits of truth and fiction, and then swindle others into believing the entirety of it. Journalist peddle the truth, Fiction Writers craft amazing lies. I truely have found my place.

So thank you my dear Words Crafter, and I shall pay this bit of fun forward. FYI, if you are not following this chick you are not one of the cool kids. So go HERE and enjoy yourself. You will find few bloggers so creative, supportive and thoughful of others in the bloggisphere.

So, the Rules atached to The Bold Face Liar Award...

The Bold Face Liar Creative Writer Award requires you to:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link to them.

2. Add the award to your blog.

3. Tell six outrageous lies about yourself and one truth. (Another variant: Tell six truths and one outrageous lie. YOU get to guess which variant I chose – and which statements are true, as well as which are lies.)

4. Nominate six creative liars writers and post links to them.

5. Let your nominees know that they have been nominated.

Can you figure out which group I went with? 6 lies or 6 truths? We'll see.

1. I visit China with my husband every 2-3 years.

I've seen a ghost.

3. I've talked a person out of killing someone.

4. I was published in Writers Digest.

5. I live in a fairly old and very creaky Colonial in the country.

6. I killed my cousin.

7. I use to 'dance' in college. It paid good.

Now you tell me if I won this award fairly. =^.^=

And I award The Bold Face Liar Award to...

1. Cort Ellyn at Wordweaver

2. Justin W. Parente at In My Write Mind

3. Old Kitty at Ten Lives and Second Chances

4. Roland at Writing In The Crosshairs (Because ya are ;-D)

5. Summer Ross at My Inner Fairy

DL at Cruising Altitude

And a extra Bold Face Liar award goes out to whoever guesses my lie or truth first!!!!

Thanks all, and I hope to have some more blogfests and contests up for your viewing soon. And check out all the nice folks above. They're a batch of great 'liars' and blogging friends!


  1. This is hard! You sure didn't make it easy- I think the truth is that you were published in writers digest and the rest are outrageous lies! Thank you so very much for bestowing the award upon me, I'll link you to it on my home page( though I wont be blogging about it unless I have time) I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Congratulations with your fab awards!! Wonderful!!

    And thank you for nominating me - thank you!

    Oooh I'm hoping and I really am hoping that 6 is a lie. 1,4 and 5 are true!! :-)

    Take care

  3. Bold-faced Liar? Moi? Never. Unless I'm caught.

    Thanks for the award, Nicole. I believe every one except maybe #1. Hey, I know some cousins that need killing. Have a great weekend. Roland

  4. Oh, Wow! Thanks for the award, Nicole! Can't wait to participate as soon as I get the chance. Yay!

  5. Wow, you're very good at this....I cannot believe you killed anyone. On paper doesn't count. So, I have to ask myself, why would she be going to China every 2 or 3 years? Hmmmmm.....all the others seem plausible, even the dancing part-you could be playing on words here....yep. You're good!

    Thank you very much for the shout out and the very kind words. And right back at ya!

    I really really liked, "And second, I think a good fiction writer is a good liar. We fabricate stories around bits of truth and fiction, and then swindle others into believing the entirety of it. Journalist peddle the truth, Fiction Writers craft amazing lies. I truely have found my place." Swindling readers, crafting amazing lies....when is your book going to be available?

    Oh, one more thing. I'm with Roland, some cousins need killin'. Or maimin' at least....

  6. I'm hoping (crossing fingers) that your one outrageous Lie is that you killed your cousin and everything else is the truth.

    Thank you for passing this along to me. Its one of my favorite awards! :)

  7. No problem folks and thank you--all of ya. What others think are truths and falsehoods has been interesting. I am glad I have not lost my touch. All shall be revealed tomorrow!!!

  8. Apparently, the person you "talked out of killing someone" wasn't yourself? Or perhaps that is true, and your cousin is still alive?

    And interesting double blind there.

    And I REALLY hope "Published in Writers Digest" is true. That would be cooler than seeing a ghost and living in a creaky old Colonial that might possibly be where you saw the ghost.

    Yep, you've earned the award.
