Thank you to Fae of Fae’s Twist and Tango for nominating me for this award. I really appreciate the thoughtfulness. Please take a look at Fae’s blog when you have a chance. She has a wonderful outlook and while her blog is newly discovered for me I enjoy her posts.
As many of us mention, awards are a great way to highlight the blogs that make us smile, inform us, and give us the creative spark to try something new. So this award is aptly named!
First 7 random things about me:
1) Creativity is what keeps me going. Depending on what my schedule allows I always try to find a creative outlet.
2) I love the connection between gardening and cooking. It is wonderful stepping out my door to quickly “shop” for my ingredients.
3) I love to draw and paint though I haven’t had time in the past few years to sit down and paint something.
4) Photography is my main medium with art these days. I love doing up close photos.
5) A big reason I love blogging is it is a great community and it is so positive. No contentious political debates, no facepalms, etc.
6) I play on a dodgeball team. We’re not very good so we have to be the funny team. 🙂
7) I try to use my passport once a year. If I won the lottery, my passport would melt with all the stamping!
Without further ado, the nominees are:
Cindy Knoke – This lady has traveled all over the world and it is so fun to look at her photos
A Lot on Your Plate – A fun site with great recipes. She also does an ingredient of the month where she links recipes from other blogs.
Growing a Homestead – You have to be very creative and think outside the box to start a homestead.
Pillow-A-La-Mode – Creativity oozes out of this blog
Spontaneous Tomato – Yummy recipes
Frugal Feeding – Shows over and over you can eat well and still hold onto your wallet.
Valerie Davies – A wonderful storyteller
Congratulations on your well deserved award and congratulations to all those remarkable bloggers who received your nomination! I am celebrating that we connected over the blogger miles.
Thank you! You know, I get a kick out of seeing which countries are represented when people are looking at my blog. It’s fun to share with the kids. 🙂
🙂 I agree!
Congratulations to you and your nominees!
I find you are more talented than I have assumed, Virginia! …therefore, Kreativ Award well deserved! Thank you for the kind mention. 😀 Fae.
Thank you so much. 🙂
Thanks so much for nominating Spontaneous Tomato. And congratulations on your award as well! 🙂
(I am with you on trying to use my passport once a year! I wish I could be with you on the gardening thing too, but try as I might, I don’t seem to have a green thumb at all…)
You are welcome and thank you! Funny bit about green thumbs. If I try houseplants, I fail miserably. I have to be really good when it comes to seedlings.
Congratulations!! I don’t know if I told you either, that I love the new look. Very pretty! Did you take the background picture?
I didn’t but that was one of the themes that fit me best. Eventually I would like to do a custom page with my photos. One step at a time! 🙂
Congratulations! You have a lovely blog.
Thank you. 🙂 I really enjoy blogging. Not sure why I waited so long to start!
Love your photos so it would be great if you were back to drawing and painting again. Maybe that should be something you explore in 2013?
I would like to think so. Just need to find the time! Getting into tax season now. While fun it’s not very creative. 🙂
Congratulations! I’m sure there’ll be more to come. 🙂
Thanks. It is nice to have such positive feedback to what I’m posting.
