Kreativ Award



I always feel a bit braggadocios when I talk about a new award. They really are a sweet way to feel connected to the community and I try to acknowledge them all but it makes me feel a bit self conscious sometimes to be perfectly honest. The latest award is a very special one as it recogizes bloggers who are creative. The Kreativ Blogger award was passed onto me by both Signature Sterling who has a very creative blog herself and makes gorgeous jewelry like the Spring Green necklace to the right. Nature With Me also passed the award my way. She has a very earthy and green blog and makes adorable handmade items like the bunny that I always love seeing next to a comment.

So the rules to this award are pretty simple. I'm supposed to list 6 0r 7 (it seems that it is different in different blogs) things I'm thankful for and then pass it on to that number of people. Since I like odd numbers I will choose to say 7.

I'm thankful for the time I get to spend with my nieces,
for the laughs I share with my husband,
the sense of joy that my knitting gives me,
for my parents who truly love me despite their flaws and my own,
for being blessed with such a sweet mother in law,
for my husband and my own job security in this tumultuous economy,
for having enough money to buy the things we need and many things that we just want.

And now I would like to pass the Kreativ award on to 7 very creative bloggers who use their creativity to create gorgeous creations with their hands as well as create unique blogs that I love to read: (Yes, I did just use 5 variations of the word create in one sentence, how creative was that)

1. A Kindred Spirit's Thoughts
2. A Nut in a Nutshell
3. Mariposa Farm Alpacas
4. The Soap Seduction
5. the weblog of artist athena workman
6. Yarn Obsession
7. PamperingBeki

Love your use of the word creative in so many ways! Thank you for the kind words about my bunny. His name is Wiggle.

BTW, (re: your earlier post) I would take hair and skin beauty tips from you anytime!

I feel EXACTLY like you do about awards. I appreciate them so much but I have a very hard time with posting them because it feels like a pat on the back and it's uncomfortable. I'm so glad you wrote that so I don't feel alone.

Thank you so much for the award!!!
