Get to Know Me a Little More - A Blogger Award

I recently was given the "Versatile Blogger" award by both Copper Diem and My Bead Journey -- thank you!

My problem with awards like this is knowing who to pass it along to.  I follow about 200 (at LEAST 200) blogs, so with awards I always say, to everyone who is reading this, please grab this button for yourself because you're all super and I'd love to read more about you.  So if you choose to do this, please let me know so I can read it!

Now I'm supposed to share seven things about me with you.

1.  I broke my leg when I was one year old.  Since then I've broken it two more times.

2.  I taught aerobics in Italy for three months.  Which is a good thing because the food was amazing.

3.  I'm scared of heights yet I love roller coasters and have been to the top of the Sears Tower.

4.  I got to stand inside the rotunda of Monticello and go into all the other "no visitors" areas, thanks to a super friend being a tour guide there.

5.  I like sushi, but didn't try it until AFTER my trip to Japan.  Silly girl.

6.  I learned to read when I was three, and my first "big girl book" was The Wizard of Oz.

7.  I've been through an earthquake (albeit a very small one) when I lived in South America.

So there are my seven things -- I hope you've enjoyed them!

Lori Anderson designs jewelry for Lori Anderson Designs and also writes for the blog An Artist's Year Off and occasionally for Art Bead Scene.  She longs for more time to read.


  1. So cool, Lori, didn't know about any of these except for one. Glad to get to know ya even better! :-)

  2. Thanks for sharing Lori!
    I can't believe you've broken your leg three times! Wow.
    I am scared of heights too but love roller coaster. What scares me the most is when i have to be on top of very high building and look down.

    Thanks for sharing Lori. Have a beautiful week!

    Lori, congratulations on the award... just love reading your blog! You have traveled...Italy, Japan, and South! Thanks for sharing! Thanks for your comments on my cuff bracelet.

  7. Great share...
    I laugh that you love sushi now...I love it too. Perhaps someday will eat it in Japan!


  8. Your poor leg! I have a collapsing right leg right now and am trying to get into the orthopedic surgeon to get it checked. All that breaking sounds horrendous!

    I still love these "seven things you don't know about me." Thanks for answering, Lori. Very fun!


  9. Even I learned something new and I've known you forever. :-)

  10. Lori a broken leg 3 times may be able to tell the weather with it down the road! lol. jk. I took Ron to Monticello when we lived in Charlottesville and was so impressed. To of lived there so many years ago with that life must of been so incredible! I was surprised the house wasn't a bit bigger but what a lovely place. Many intresting things about you!


I appreciate comments! Thank you for contributing to the conversation.
