Super Sweet Blogger :)

Christiane, of Cosmic Faery's Tarot, was kind enough to nominate me for this award :)  Christiane's blog is fascinating, combining an understanding of astrology and tarot, as well as showcasing her own tarot deck, a work in progress that combines photos and quotes!  The latest addition showed two sheep cuddled up together for the Lovers, with a quote from Aristotle: "Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies."  Christiane's site also includes links to her online tarot and astrology course, which I'd love to take one day...

I was really touched that Christiane nominated me.  This blog hasn't been going long, and it's nice to hear it has something to offer.  So, the Rules are:

1. Give credit to the wonderful person who chose to nominate you
2. Answer the “Super Sweet” questions3. Nominate a “Baker’s Dozen” of 13 blogs

2. Super Sweet Questions

Cookies or Cake? 
Hmm, Chocolate Chip Cookies are a definite favourite!

Chocolate or Vanilla?
No brainer: chocolate!

What is your favorite sweet treat?
I think I'll have to go for a chocolate brownie, gooey, part cake part cookie, all delicious ;) 

When do you crave sweet things the most?
They don't call it emotional eating for nothing.  Being upset is definitely a trigger for me.

If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be?
Well, my DH sometimes calls me KerryChocolate...

3. My Baker's Dozen

I haven't been blogging that long, so I think I'll follow Christiane's example and not stress any longer about choosing more blogs.  Instead, I'll just choose nine blogs, like the nine maidens of Brigid's sacred flame...

Siddaleah - I only just discovered this blog, but am really enjoying it.  She uses an interesting selection of decks, and asks some tough questions.

OathBound Secrets - a very intelligent pagan blog, exploring the history and philosophy of magic.

Book of Mirrors - a wonderful pagan blog, with interesting thoughts on a heap of different subjects.  From "modest dress" to herbs to rites of passage, there's a wealth of things to think about and learn.

SamhainMoon - Monica Laura uses some very unusual decks, and shares plenty of good spreads.  Her readings are always enlightening, and she does helpful deck reviews, too.

Seer Pathways - I love Lisa's wisdom and spiritual beauty.  This is such an inspiring site!

Rowan Tarot -  Carla does some fascinating things with tarot cards, and I absolutely loved her Tarot Majors and chants series - beautiful!

The Life of Witch Elle - Elle, or Shelley, crosses the blog/vlog boundary, posting to both fairly regularly.  I was delighted to learn about crystal grids from her, and enjoy her card explorations and more personal posts, too.

Magic Mentha - with the odd post about herbs thrown in to educate, this blog is mainly about cards and about life.  A homey place to visit, I love the sense of meeting a real person here.

Priestess of the Light - a gorgeous pagan blog, with an author who really thinks about what spirituality means to her, and adds in lots of gorgeous pics and poems, too :)

P.S. Sorry for the formatting issues, hope this is still legible *doh*


  1. Fantastic! Thank you so much for your kind credit ;) I look forward to checking out your nominations ;)

    1. You're most welcome, Christiane :) I always learn a lot from your posts!

  2. Thanks for nominating me, Kerry. I've just ordered the Goddess Oracle because it features on your vlogs of your altars. Decided I needed that. :) I've rearranged my altar today, no camera for taking videos, though! x

    1. You're welcome, Carla, love your blog! Hope you enjoy the Goddess Oracle. It's one of the very few decks I have two copies of, as I "needed" one for my altar and one for readings ;)

  3. Thank you for nominating me! How very SWEET of you. :-D I can't wait to check out the others you've nominated.

    1. Ha ha, Siddaleah, you're welcome. And I hope I'll discover some other gems through you, too :)

  4. Aww thanks--I feel greedy whenever I get awards like this. Hehe. I need to repay this! There are so many great blogs!

    I'm glad you find the blog 'homey!' I want people to feel welcome.

    Thank you, Kerry-Chocolate! I have chocolate-cherry cake that I wish I could share with you, because I don't want to eat too much of it myself...


    1. Nom nom nom, chocolate-cherry cake sounds delicious! Hope you thoroughly enjoy it ;)

      I don't think you should feel greedy when you get something like this - how about trying to see it as a stroke, a hug, and something that you deserve? It's not like you chase after people saying nice things, or constantly blow your own trumpet! You're allowed to have nice things, too :)


  5. Thank you for nominating me! You are super sweet! Much love sister!

  6. Thank you - what an honour! I wish I had time to participate actively. Congrats to everyone who was nominated! :)

    1. Hi Lisa,

      I know that time is tight. Still, I couldn't help but honour your blog, which I love :)

  7. Thank you for the nomination! This is a fun concept. I would like to participate if I can find the time to go around choosing blogs. I don't know many personally.

    You're making some interesting connections with this concept. : ) Once more, thank you so much!

    1. You're most welcome, Mónica Laura. I love your blog, and have been enabled by it many a time ;) And yes, I like the networking/connections aspect of this, a way to honour people whose work I enjoy, and hopefully to connect to some interesting new blogs <3
