Just Trying To Be Kreativ Here

I’m so excited! Yet another blog award came my way this week. It’s the Kreativ Blog Award, and my friend, Adrienne, over at http://mymemoryart.blogspot.com/ bestowed this one upon me. Thanks, Adrienne!

The rules of accepting a blog award are to reveal interesting tidbits about yourself that you haven’t made public before.  That’s a little difficult.  I’ve been blogging for over a year, and have been fortunate to receive a few blog awards along the way. So I seem to have shared most everything there is to tell about me. There’s not much interesting stuff left.  But I’ll try:

1.) I wear a contact lens in my right eye, but not my left. My right eye sees distance with help from the lens, and my left eye sees up close. It’s called “monovision”, and I love it. (I don’t have to keep up with reading glasses.)

2.) I once had a CB radio, and my handle was “Sunshine”.

3.) Thankfully, I’m not a hoarder. But my mom used to call me a packrat. And I think she was on to something.

4.) My favorite music is 50’s and 60’s oldies. Oh, okay, you can throw in the first couple of years of the 70’s too.

5.) In high school, I took one year of home ec. We learned to sew in that class, and part of our exam was to put a zipper in a dress we had made. While doing so, I sewed the front and back of the dress bodice together. Kreativ sewing, perhaps?

Now I’m to pass on this award to a few of my favorite bloggers. Please visit them and tell ’em I sent ya.

If I name you in this list, and you don’t wish to participate, please feel no pressure!

1.) Sammy at http://onespoiledcat.wordpress.com/ Sammy’s mom, Pam, and I have gotten to be pretty good internet pals. If you like kitties, you’ll love Sammy’s blog.

2.) Mama’s Empty Nest. http://mamasemptynest.wordpress.com/ I’m a fairly new reader here, but I love her pictures and am always interested in what she has to say .

3.) The View Out Here  http://theviewouthere.wordpress.com/  I’ve never met Dee, but I keep threatening to cash in my air miles and fly out to Michigan to visit her and her family…and the Clydesdales!

4.) Patti at A New Day Dawns http://pattisjarrett.wordpress.com/ Patti is a faithful reader and commenter of my blog. We really should try to meet – she only lives about an hour or so from me!

5.) E.C. at http://enjoyingcreating.wordpress.com/   E.C. and I have been blogging buddies for a long time. I can always count on her for encouragement and a sweet comment.

6.) M.J. at http://emjayandthem.com/ I could say the same things about M.J. that I did about E.C.  Sweet, supportive blogging friend!

7.) Ellie at Ellie’s Place. http://www.elliesplaceintheworld.blogspot.com/ Ellie gave me the Liebster Award a few months ago, so I’m returning the favor.

I read several blogs in addition to these. The reason those blogs aren’t on this list is that either they already have this award, or I know they don’t particularly care for blog awards.

But if any of my other blogging friends would like to claim this award and say it’s from me, please do so with my blessing!
