Beastie Adventures, Blogging Awards

Outstanding Blogger Award (and snow)

Tierney here, writing to you from the “Snowpocalypse” in Colorado, buried under quite a bit of snow.

“It so bad their (snow) plows are getting stuck or tipping on to their side…”

Any of my blogging friends live in Florida or anywhere warm? May I move in with you?

I’ve spent the weekend inside working on a new quilt, which I will share in a future post. For this post I wanted to thanks Helen @crawcraftsbeasties for nominating me for the Outstanding Blogger Award, get the questions answered that come with the nomination, and throw a couple nominations out there myself.

Helen the maker of Beasties, like my tierneycreates Beastie, had her Beasties Paddy and Plunkett answer the questions for her Outstanding Blogger Award nomination and so I thought I would let my tierneycreates Beastie answer the questions for me.


Outstanding (Beastie) Blogger Award

Hello, my name is tierneycreates Beastie and I am a Monster, but the good kind of Monster. I was made by Helen of CrawCrafts Beasties in Dublin, Ireland. You can read my story at I’m A Monster!!!. You can also check out the other posts I’ve had to guest blog on (i.e. when the human Tierney falls off the blogging-wagon and I have to help) in the series of posts: Beastie Adventures.

Right now I am holed up in the house with Tierney during our “Snowpocalypse” in Colorado. I did go outside today to look around and here is what I saw:

Snow, snow and more snow. I had Tierney take a photo of me on the front porch as I nearly froze to death (I kept my dog Mikelet inside as it was way too cold for him):

I think it is appropriate for Tierney to let me handle the questions for the Outstanding (Beastie) Blogger Award nomination since I am sure it is my guest blogger posts on her blog that got her this nomination. Thanks to my maker, Helen @crawcraftsbeasties for recognizing my excellence as a Beastie blogger!

My answers to the questions Helen posed:

  • Coffee or tea? (Or no hot beverages at all?) TEA OF COURSE, ALWAYS TEA.
  • Where in the world would you most like to visit, and why? TIERNEY WANTS TO GO TO NEW ZEALAND, BUT I WANT TO GO TO IRELAND AND SEE WHERE I WAS BORN/MADE AGAIN
  • What is the most delicious meal you’ve ever eaten, and where did you have it? THE PLATE OF SPAGHETTI AND MEATBALLS MADE BY MY FIANCE JOHN BEASTIE (see post Guest Blog Post: Mail Order Groom).
  • What have you made that you’re most proud of, and why? I AM STILL LEARNING TO SEW ON MY NEW “BEASTNINA” THAT HELEN MADE ME, BUT I THINK TIERNEY IS PRETTY PROUD OF THE QUILT SHE DISCUSSES IN THIS POST – The Lesson and The Equation.
  • What’s your plan for today? STAY WARM AND NOT GO OUTSIDE AGAIN UNTIL THE SNOW MELTS!

Speaking of staying warm, when Tierney helped me back inside after I nearly froze to death in the blizzard. However when she helped me back to my new home on the storage unit in her studio (more in a future post), she neglected to remove the snow from my shoes!

Luckily I caught her as she was leaving the studio so she could help me remove the snow and I would not get frostbite!


Nominations & Questions

As part of being nominated for the Outstanding Blogger Award, Tierney and I need to nominate some other bloggers for this award and pose some questions to them. Helen @crawcraftsbeasties in her post Outstanding Blogger Award, already nominated a bunch of our mutual blogging buddies such as: Handmade Habit,  Tammie Painter, Fabrications,and Quiet Water Craft (and I see that Mariss @Fabrications also nominated some additional mutual blogging buddies), so here are our nominations trying not to overlap:

  1. Mildly Granola
  2. Infectious Stitches
  3. Reader’s High Tea
  4. Dave Gardner, Daily Ramblings
  5. Sew Quilty Good

If you choose to participate, here are a couple of questions for you to answer:

  1. What has blogging added to your life?
  2. Share the link for one of your favorite blog posts that you have written.
  3. If you were stuck in the house for the entire weekend due to a snowstorm, what would you do with your time?
  4. What household chore do you most enjoy, and what do you least enjoy?
  5. What did you learn from surviving 2020?

We’ll close this post with a picture of Mike (big Mike as opposed to Mikelet, the Beastie dog which is a “miniature” Miniature Schnauzer) who actually went out in the Snowpocalypse today and played ball in the backyard, running around in the trench/”racetrack” that human John created for him.

Here he is in a quilt, trying to get warm after being outside.

  1. Lovely to hear your voice again, Tierneycreatesbeastie. I am so relieved that you did not get frostbite. Please tell Tierney that I think her blog is absolutely fabulous and that she (and you) deserve the award ten times over.

      1. If socks get made then well done girl! I just decided to make some dolls sweaters for a great niece’s barbie doll – now I know why I never knit such small things …..

  2. ohhhhhh you want to come down here to New Zealand – even in the winter there are a lot of places here where “snow never falls” – maybe heavy frosts but not any sort of snow that needs to be shovelled!

  3. Congrats, Tierney! Oh my, look at that snow. I’m glad Tierneycreates Beastie is keeping warm. We are all tracking a little bit of snow on our boots these days, lol (up here, too). Nice to know that Tierneycreates Beastie is also a tea lover (always tea, right?). Stay warm!

  4. Waaah, I am so behind with everything at the moment that I only saw just now that you nominated me. Thank you! I am going to think about participating. We were ill this past week and I’m still super tired (something non-COVID-19 that my youngest brought home from daycare) and I am trying to catch up with a buckload of stuff.
    I hope your snow situation has improved since writing your post. Here spring is certainly in the air.
