Kreativ Blogger Award

I want to thank The Nail Buff for tagging me for the Kreativ Blogger Award. I don't even know what to say. Certainly was not expecting this after blogging for less than a month! :D

The rules when tagged: the recipient needs to pass the award on to 10 other blogs and write 10 facts about themselves.

Here are my blog picks in alphabetical order :)
(tag, you are it... please forgive me if you have already been tagged :)
Live. Love. Laugh. Lacquer: http://love4lacquer.blogspot.com/

And ten facts about me...
1. I was born in Belorussia, hence the name of my blog... Laki means polish in Russian
2. I am a reformed nail bitter. When I was about 12 years old, I made a bet with a couple of good friends to see who could hold off biting their nails the longest. That summer we all quit biting them :D
3. I have the first bottle of polish that started my addiction (about 25 years old and direct from Belorussia). There is not enough in the bottle to even swatch, but I just can't let it go...
4. I love getting a good deal on things (as witnessed by my excitement over my first Ulta trip...).
5. I love country music for which I get teased by my non-country music loving friends.
6. At one point I wanted to have my own business carving candles and even took a class to learn how. My mom talked me out of it (thanks Mommy!!!) and I became a pharmacist instead. Now I just carve for fun :)
7. Other hobbies include making jewelry (you can see a few at the bottom of this post) and decorating cakes
8. I suck at painting other peoples nails. As much as I love to paint my own, when I try with someone else, it always comes out sloppy. I don't have good coordination polishing toward me...
9. I really dislike when other people do my nails, which I why I very seldom get a professional manicure. They just never come out the right size or shape. I'm also very particular that they all have to match... and that never happens when someone else does it, so it is easier to just do it myself.
10. I don't like feet/toes. I can tolerate my own and even give them pedicures, but other people... just please keep your toes away from me and we will remain friends. This is another constant source of amusement for some friends... :)

Well now you know way too much about me... scared yet?

Thanks again to The Nail Buff for tagging me for this award!!!

    @McDiaz714, I don't sell the candles (I moved recently and am not even set up to carve right now). If you are interested in buying one try http://www.hollandhousecandles.com/ they have gorgeous candles. If you don't like anything there just do a google search for "carved candles" and you will get a bunch of sites selling them.

    @Witoxicity, I started following your blog recently, but have been reading it regularly ever since :)
