award time : oh my!

I have been so slack about getting around to “accepting” these awards that they are starting to pile up, along with the guilt for not responding. Please don’t take this to mean that I’m not grateful for the nominations, but it always seems sort of self-serving to talk about myself and I tend to put it off as long as possible. Of course I am a blogger so I am used to talking about myself, right?

I would like to thank Eunice at Living and Loving and Geli at Geli’s Goodies who both nomintated me for the Super Sweet Blogger Award. Wow – makes my teeth hurt just to say that! I would also like to thank Esenga’s Voice for nominating me for the Liebster Blog Award. Thanks to Drew at Drew Kail for nominating me for the Beautiful Blogger Award. Last but certainly not least thank you to Hot Rod Cowgirl for my nomination for The Kreativ Blogger Award. I am overwhelmed by their kindness in thinking of me. There are specific rules for each award. Let me explain them. All the awards start out by asking you to thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blogs. Then there are questions to answer, and you should nominate other bloggers for the award and notify them. Fairly involved. Is it any wonder I’ve been dragging my heals?

Super Sweet Blogger Award

Answer the 5 Super Sweet Questions.

Cookies or Cake? cookies

Chocolate or Vanilla? vanilla

What is your favourite sweet treat? anything caramel

When do you crave sweet things the most? when I’m frustrated

If you had a sweet nickname what would it be? not gonna happen

Leibster Award

 Answer 11 questions

A book that changed your life: I can think of a lot of great books, but I can’t pick one as life changing.

Your favourite author/writer: J. R. R. Tolkien

Pet and it’s name: cat named Kush (Sorry Marc but possession is 9/10ths of the law.)

Craziest thing you have done: travelled in Europe when I was 14, with a 14 yr. old friend (think blind leading the blind)

My best friend: several too close to choose

A childhood prank: locked the stall doors in the ladie’s room and crawled under (only kid in the place – pretty clever, right?)

Favorite music artist: Annie Lenox (group would be Beatles – of course!)

A place you would love to visit: Turkey – again

If I had just five minutes left to live what is the one thing i would do: whatever I darn well wanted!

Favorite sport: lino-printing. I figure if ribbon twirling can make it to the Olympics, there is hope for lino-printing.

How do I define love? a feeling that emanates from the heart

Beautiful Blogger Award

Tell 7 things about yourself.

I stay up later than I should, often because I’m trying to finish my blog post!

I don’t understand people who don’t recycle EVERYTHING possible.

I love boots.

I detest litter and feel disdain for people who are thoughtless enough to do it.

I do not do numbers.

I adore Kush the cat.

I collect Pez dispensers.

Kreativ Blogger Award

List 7 things about yourself.

I’m beat. You’ll have to just take 7 from the last award.

I hate to say this, but I cannot possibly come up with all the blogs I’m supposed to, so I’ve decided to cheat and cut the requirements. It’s not that there aren’t enough great blogs out there, but I’m having trouble keeping track of those who I have already nominated. The record keeping is killing me! Accept my apologies for my shortcomings, and if you are listed here, please accept my nomination as well. Take whichever award appeals to you. Take them all if you feel the need. All the linking and notifying is rather time-consuming – I feel like I’m making life more complicated than necessary. If anyone out there has figured a simple way to do this, please let me know.

Here are some of my current favorites:

Dragonfly Dreams and Butterfly Kisses

She Walks Softly

Sharechair

Hey Ma, I’m Home

The Squeaky Robot

My Life with My Knife

Cat Emery Photography

Out of the Birdcage

Cuminseeds

Brilliant London

Leanne Cole Photography

Dervish Images

Chittle Chattle

Erin’s DC Kitchen

Ok. That’s it. There are loads more great blogs out there, but please check out a few of these and broaden your horizons. Thanks again for the award nominations. Thank you also to everyone who is kind enough to comment, like or follow my blog. I love my blogging community.

  1. Thank you for the nomination. I do appreciate it. And I also understand your concerns about the time and effort. I feel the same way. It is a wonderful, happy thing, and I like the way it introduces us to new bloggers, etc, but I sure do wish there was an easier way to do it!!! 🙂 I thank you and I will get to it, I promise!!

  3. Being gifted with blog awards is exciting, but it is VERY time-consuming! I’m late on accepting a couple of them myself. Have a good day! – Congrats on the awards!
