And the award goes to...

A special thanks to Kami over at It's No Biggie for giving me the Kreativ Blogger Award! I will display it proudly on my sidebar. Coming from Kami this means the world because she is a blogging virtuoso. I read her blog daily for a little chuckle, a little music, a little linkage, and a little uplifting to a down shifting day. Upon acceptance, I would like to thank the 4 people who read this blog. Yes, this includes you Mom. I've found that blogging is so much more than a feeble attempt to make my life seem much more interesting than it really is, but rather blogging has become a creative outlet for me to write, create, share, and learn in a space that is all my own. For Kami to take the time to notice makes me smile. Real big. The best part is that I get to pass the Kreative Blog Award on to 6 other lucky bloggers. Here are my picks:
Jessie of O'Neals Window
She's a dear friend, who takes amazing pictures. I'm constantly in awe of what a great mother she is. I love getting little snippets of her happy little family.
Mindi of Word to Your Mother
She's a rockin' mother of 4 who knows how to keep it real. But honestly, this is really about me trying to win her dang blog giveaway! I don't know what a "turkey seasonal" is, but I NEED one.
Liz of Lizzy the Botanist
She loves to blog just as much, if not more, than I do. We're constantly forwarding each other little bits of inspiration for crafting, baking, and entertaining. We have big plans for when we have big money. Also, check out her Christmas blog and become an Elf!
Diane of Diane Can Cook
She's a SLC local, who knows what she likes when it comes to dining in and out. If you're in SLC you will appreciate her reviews of the hot spots.
Marta of Marta Writes
Don't know her personally, but her writing is always an inspiration to me. I've enjoyed reading about her first experiences as a new mom with a new babe.
Steph of Stephanie's Kitchen
She's a local stay at home blogger who bakes delicious food that makes mouths water. Her food is simple, unpretentious, and hearty. Plus, she's a member of the Daring Bakers so it's fun to see what she comes up with each month.

Now go on bloggers! Pay it forward. It feels real nice.

Heck yeah you deserve an award!! Keep up the "Kreativ" blogging. :) I love to peek in (even though I know I'll feel the shame you put me in when I do!). One of these days I'll be a better blogger (maybe that will be my 2009 resolution. :)
