Ask Away Friday with Carissa

Hi Everyone,
Sorry i am very late with these, but Carissa is an absolutely brilliant person and I hate letting people down.
Everyone must please forgive me if I am not around as much but my father is very ill in England and we are dashing around trying to get air tickets and visa's etc, so that we can go and see him, takingall my time at the moment it seems.
Well I really enjoy
Ask Away Friday, and will try not to miss any, even though my internet access is going to be limited there.
As I said I am teaming up with Carissa this week and to see how she answers my questions you can go to:, her blog is well worth visiting anyway.
Well her goes a very good set of questions from Carissa.
1)    It's date night and it's your turn to plan ... what do you plan?
       Well we both prefer to be at home, so as we have a small flat, I would send him out for the day, and cook him up a smack up gourmet meal, and then take out his favorite musicals and we would have a romantic dinner for two and then watch at home movies.After that I leave to your imaginations.
2)    How did you get into blogging?
       Well that was simple, we had not got the business on it's feet yet and I was bored and going into my email, when I saw blogger, and Les was standing behind said why don't you try, So I thought why not, it will be somewhere, where I can show the work I am doing, and if I get good enough, I can start another one for the business.
3)    I see you are very into crafts and DIY projects, which one is your favorite and why?
       At the moment my favorite thing is doing stamping and colouring the stamp and then making it mainly into cards at the moment. Here is my latest one.
4)    What is your favorite part of blogging?
My favorite part of blogging is all the fantastic poeple that I meet and make friends with.
5)    You participate in a lot of blog hops, which one is your favorite and why?
Wow what a good question. I have not really thought about it, I don't think I really have a favorite, I find them all wonderful and the people that you get to meet are wonderful to.
6)    What are your favorite blog's to read?
Well I love the food one's because they are teaching me lot's of new recipes, and hubby and I now compete to see how many recipes we can use each week for something we have never made before. I love the crafty ones because I am always learning new things from them. I love those that teach me more about blogging, because I know nothing. And then there are those that give you love and encouragement, and I need a lot of that at the moment.
7)    Where do you find inspiration for your blog?
I find inspiration all over the place, sometimes I am just looking out of my window, and see the baby ducks, and it will give me an idea to go and make a card or find a stencil or, may be I will just feel like giving everyone some love and I will just write a post. It all depends, somtimes I get idea's or inspiration by visiting other blogs.
8)    What is your favorite thing to do since your retired?
Well mainly I am making Stencils and wooden cut out's for the Company, and when I don't do that I love either sitting with Les and a nice glass of wine and a good movie, or doing some crafting.
9)    What are your blogging goals for the year?
I guess I have not made any as yet, as at the beginning of january my father became very ill and I have been concentrating on that more then anything else. I would not mind, maybe being able to sell some of my company stuff, through my blog, but I don't want to loose all my friends, and may be get fifty to a hundred followers.
10)    Does your husband read your blog?
Well not unless I ask him to read something, or else he may read it qwhen he does computing late at night and I am in bed.
Well thank you Carissa for some stunning questions. I look forward to reading your answers too mine.
I wish everyone a really fantastic day and weekend.
Love and best wishes.
