Kreativ Blogger Award and More!

I won an award and so did my Mom and Nessa!

First I have to say a thank you to Turtle Springs Farms for the Sisterhood Award that she sent on to my Mother and my neighbor Nessa. It was so sweet of her to recogonize my mom who is a very new blogger! And of course we all love Nessa and her money saving tips!

Here is what Turtle Springs Farms had to say about my mom.

Marge @ I recently stumbled across this blog & I'm so glad I did. I am amazed at the stories this older lady is sharing of her hard work as she raised her own children long ago....and laid brick, hung sheetrock, built a porch.....what an example.

Next I won an award from JustJoycee.

It is the Kreativ Blogger award. How cool is it to be told your Kreativ! Sure did make me feel fantastic!

Of course there are a few rules to the awards so here is the qualifiers for this one.

And here are the rules for this award! (I love awards, and typing award!)

1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated.

So here are my 7 things that you might find interesting about me.

1. As many of you already know I am working on my weight as it has worked on me for years now. SO...I have lost 27 lbs and 21 inches so far. But I have 87 lbs to go. That is the size of a decent size child. It would be amazing to get it all off but I know will take some time and determination.

2. I love to color my hair. I am a natural mousey brown headed woman who lives through Ms. Clariol. Due to my desire to be outgoing and coloring my hair helps me, I stay a brilliant red head the majority of the time.

3. My #1 diet aid is crushed ice and a spoon. If I am wanting to nibble I find this is great. No calories, adds to my water count and give a satisfying crunch too!

4. I am shy inside and try my best to hide it! Honestly! I found in high school that I was tired of being hidden. So instead of being shy, I pretend I am not. You know the something long enough that it becomes part of you.

5. I still have my tonseils. And they are flaring up again!

6. It is hot in Texas. Really, really hot. And we are not turning on our a/c due to cost. So I am learning to appreciate sweating. I look at it as a way to "slim down". Actually I am getting use to it so I find that I can now walk in the heat and do pretty well. That sure does help with exercise.

7. I have hammer toes. Yeah, like you wanted to know that. lol But because they are so small and curl down I am sure I wear a size smaller in shoes than I would if they were straight like they are suppose to be.

Now for my 7 nominations for the Kreativ Blogger Award.

Drum Roll Please........................................................................................

1. Josie My newest follower. Thank You! I love her site. The Poor College Students Guide to Raising a Baby. Now that takes some Kreativ challanges.

2. I have to put on here Creative Bloggers. A site just for those who know how to bring their ideas to fruition.

3. Macaroni and Glue features so many beautiful artist and their works. I am awarding her so that she can continue to promote these amazing people.

4. Fearful Penguin has so many projects to help you sew, knit and create. How I wish I had that kind of talent. Pop over and join in on a craft.

5. Mr. C's Class Creative Writing is a wonderful place to visit. It is so enjoyable to read these words that so many have shared with Mr. C. Interesting writings and wonders on what is to come.

6. Today's Creative Blog also shares the talents of others with us. I love how scrap booking looks but I do not have the patience it takes.
