34.......and so much more!

Where do I begin: lemme see now, there's the shoe dodger, the vp who seems proud to admit that he approved the water boarding, and on and on, BUT I'll leave politics behind for the moment and get down to some long overdue business!

Waaaay back on December 4th, Beverly my blogger bud, nominated me as a Kreative blogger.

While I'm honored, of course, I dread these things (notice the procrastination?....I even cleaned my entire house today before blogging!! LOL) and have now put this off until it is almost far too embarrassing to own up to! So, here goes:

The rules are:

1. The winner may put the logo on her blog.
2. Put a link to the person you got the award from in your blog.
3. Nominate 5 blogs.
4. Put links to the blogs.
5. Leave a message for your nominees.

Here are my nominees (I feel like Bush dodging a shoe here! LOL):

1. my wonderful cousin Eva, and her Eva from Sweden blog. Eva is a such an incredible person: wonderful wife, loving mother and grandmother, caring and loving daughter, and the most wonderful Swedish cousin a girl could ask for! Thanks for all you do for me and for others, Eva! Oh, and yes: her blog is great and her photography is fabulous! Check her out!!!

2. the second Eva in my life: I love her wonderful pictures of Germany, her colorful quilting, and simply being her friend. Thanks Eva!!

3. my complex cloth buddy Marga. WOW, what a fiber artist! I have so enjoyed getting to know Marga over the past year, and feel honored to be associated with her!

4. a blogger who is always there for me: Barbara from Surfside Serenity: Barb lives very near to where I grew up, so I was instantly drawn to her blog, but then I discovered a really sensitive and caring person.........a giving mother, teacher and wife. Love Ya Barb!!

5. Susan PM, a very creative and sharing blogger. I am learning so much about technique from this gal. If you love complex cloth and surface design like I do, check her out!

One of the reasons that I shy away from these little 'awards' is that I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings by way of exclusion. If you're like me, you would heave a sigh of relief if you never had to do this little exercise (although I'm honored to receive it!), so please don't feel excluded and unloved if I didn't mention your name and blog....know that I love you dearly! This is such a busy time of the year that I hesitated to even nominate anyone, but then I couldn't just ignore the honor that Bev had bestowed upon me! So there you go!!!

OK, now back to the shoe-throwing incident: if you didn't catch my boyfriend Keith tonight, check this
out.....I have never laughed so hard in my whole life!!!

Now that I've gotten all of that paperwork out of the way, I can return to my usual slovenly,er, I mean creative self! I hope to blog more tomorrow with some exciting tidbits to further enhance your holiday season!

What have I done wrong? Every fiber blogger I know has gotten this award, but me. I am going to go sit at my sewing machine and sulk.

And, remember, I found Keith first and introduced you to him!!

Judy said...

You are always first on my list (every single list!), but I know how busy and creative you are right now with your show, that I just wasn't going to stress you with yet one more award!

And yes, I am forever thankful to you for introducing me to Keith, the new love of my life! LOL

Love ya honey!!

I feel the same as you do about choosing a few bloggers to mention for an award. I usually wimp out and say everyone who reads my blog.

Barbara said...

Judy, Thanks for naming me as a Kreativ Blogger! I am so thrilled that we have connected through our blogs. If you ever find yourself in my neck of the woods I would love to get together.

See, i feel like ducking to the side just from reading about the shoe incdident here. I think the thrower is being sought after by some baseball teams here in the U.S.

Thank you for naming me as a Kreativ Blogger, and for all your kind words about me.
I don’t know if I’m able to live up to all these complements, but I really do feel very much honoured =)))
You’re first, second, third, fourth and fifth on my Kreativ Blogger list, even though I haven’t made any list.
You’re such a handy, creative and nice person your self.
I don’t know so many blogger’s, so I’m afraid that I can’t make any list of my own.
