Well, I do believe today is Christmas. I know, I know. Its only October 21st and you think that means that it can't POSSIBLY be Christmas, yet. But you are wrong. I know today is Christmas because I got a present. Wanna' see it? Lookie, lookie ~ ~ ~ over there on the side. See it? I already unwrapped it and everything. Set it on my shelf for all to admire. Doesn't it look purdy?
::Yaya dusts unnecessarily at the new award she received from Kristi::
Now, I would like to choose some very special people to pass this award on to.
No, wait! Maybe you'd like to know what the 'Kreative Blogger Gotta'-Do's' are, huh? Okay. Here are the 'Gotta'-Do's' so you'll know what to do when your turn comes:
Ok-Here are the seven suggestions ('Gotta'-Do's') for this lovely award. Recipients-You are charged with completing certain guidelines once receiving this award.
1) Copy the pretty picture and post it on your blog. This is the fun and easy part.
2) Thank the person that gave it to you and link to their blog. This is the fun and easy part. I've done this already, but there can never be too many thanks. THANK YOU KRISTI!!
3) Write 7 things about yourself we don't know. This is the fun and not so easy part.
4) Choose 7 other bloggers you would like to pass the award to. This is not so easy, either!
5) Link to those 7 other bloggers: Easy!
6) Notify your 7 bloggers: Easy!
Now, I don't know about you, but I had to ask how to do some of the things above, so if you don't know how to do something, don't be afraid to ask me. If I don't know how, I have learned who to ask. For the record, I also saved the instructions.
So, here are my choices:
For her contribution to the writing world and her determination and compassion in saving the Baby Rhino's, I pass this award to Lynn. The uniquely creative methods she implemented and the clever ways she found to recognize the talents of those around her were magical. If you've ever thought you'd like to be a witness to the enchantment of fairies, go to Lynn's site and read about the Baby Rhino's.
I give to Angelia, whose quiet faith that everyone around her can achieve greatness has helped many of us to 'keep 'a-going' when we might otherwise have quit, this award to proudly display. She shares her wisdom with the sweet confidence that lets us know we are, each and everyone of us, important and special.
Angelia loves horses and if that is your passion, you will want to learn from her. She takes great joy in sharing her expertise and you will thrill when you realize the depth of her knowledge and love for what she does.
How thrilled I am by Donna's words of inspiration. She is always there to offer assistance, teaching by example those lessons she has struggled so hard to learn, herself. She has built several places on the web where she gives instruction and advice, and you would do well to follow her guidance. I so admire her tenacity of spirit. To you, Donna, I give this award for greatness.
Do you want to excel in what you do? Then, you must go to Mikki's site, where you can learn so many remarkable lessons, both in life and in her capacity as a writer. Mikki amazes me in her knowledge. But more than that; she is willing to guide others by applying simple, not simplistic, methods, mixed with concern. You will be better in what you do by going to Mikki's site and applying the techniques she shares. Thank you, Mikki, for all you do.
For her ability to lovingly show those who trust in her leadership when they have gone beyond the limits of acceptance, I want to send this award to dear, dear Terrie, a gem in anyone's eyes. Her life holds so many challenges, yet she smiles and continues to help others. I am in awe of Terri and the love she shows through it all. And Terrie's knowledge shines through in the words she shares on her website. You will want to go there.
Quiet, believing Amy has long been an inspiration in my life. I wonder if I would have continued blogging if Amy had not stopped by my first blog and offered her sweet words of encouragement and kindness. For a very, very long time, I could not figure out how to find Amy on the web, but only recently was I able to recognize how to travel to her wonderful home on the internet. Thank you, Amy, for believing in me.
My heart goes out to Claudsy for her kindness and generosity in sharing what she knows. For this and the marvelous blog she maintains, I want to present this award to her. Thank you, Claudsy, for the many times you have helped and encouraged so many of us in our endeavors for greatness. You are great in my eyes.
I can't tell you how much it means to me to not only receive this award, but to be able to pass it on to others whom I have admired for the kind of people they are. There are more, of course, but I will wait to find out if it is breaking any rules if I add them to my list of appreciated people.
And may I just say that I want to thank Kristi for honoring me with this Kreative Blogger's award. I so admire her ability to stand tall in the face of adversity. She is truly an inspiration to all whose lives she touches.
Now, I s'pose I hafta' tell something about myself. Hmmmm. It seems that I've told everything there is to know about me. Let's see; 7 things that you may not know about me:
1. I would be a very shy person if I thought I could get away with it. Trouble is, I had to learn at an early age that if I didn't make friends quickly, I may not get another chance because I moved around so much.
2. If I thought I wouldn't break my neck, I would still enjoy climbing trees.
3. I love watching cartoons, especially the older ones... Heckle and Jeckle are a particular favorite.
4. For the most part, I am a nightowl.
5. I am four years old.
6. I love playing with my grandies.
7. On the day my hubby-buddy proposed to me, he asked how I wanted to celebrate and I said I wanted to climb some trees... and we did.
Well, now you know; I have many layers. Perhaps you'll wanna' come back and watch for another level. Ya' just never know what to expect from me. :-)
