Kudos for Kreativity


Yesterday Rena was nice enough to tag me with the Kreativ Blogger Award. I have to admit in the past I’ve been guilty of letting these things slide, but it’s definitely not for lack of appreciation. I’m not ungrateful, just a little disorganized. I figured I'd get right on this one.

For this award, I’m supposed to list seven things I love. I think it goes without saying that I love my family, so here are seven more things I love (slightly less than my family and in no particular order):

1. Dogs. I must love them to put up with how annoying they can be. I find their earnestness endearing, and those ears are ridiculously soft.

2. Cheese. It’s my weakness. Have you ever watched a Wallace and Grommit episode? I can totally relate to Wallace’s devotion to Wensleydale. And I’ve never even tried Wensleydale.

3. Floating in salt water. This is one of the best sensations on earth.

4. The colors blue and orange together. Think deep turquoise blue, and a bright peachy orange. That combo makes me drool.

5. Babies. Two things I'm crazy for are those little fluffy curls at the nape of their necks, and the look of utter complacency on their faces when riding on mom’s hip.

6. (Planned) Pratfalls. I can’t bear to see anyone getting hurt, but someone falling on purpose is hilarious. No matter how many times I watch Napoleon Dynamite, the scene where he falls over the fence cracks me up.

7. Ghost stories. Not fiction (although those are fun, too), but real accounts of run-ins with supernatural stuff. That fascinates me – I want to know more!

Now I’m supposed to choose seven creative bloggers to pass this award to. I think all the bloggers I visit are creative – that’s why I read their blogs! But the rules say to pick seven, so I nominate Louise, Linda, Carrie, Stephanie, ICQB, Michelle, and Bish. Thanks for the inspiration!

Thank you for thinking of me …
I love this award…

I will do a post about this award in a few days.

I enjoyed reading about the things that you love; I too adore babies.
Hand me a baby and I am in heaven.

I will have to email you about my ghost story someday…

Your list is awesome! I love that you have colors on there!

ICQB said...

Thank you so much for passing the award my way! It was very kind of you to think of me, considering I'm kind of a small-fry in the world of Kreativity : )

I checked out your other nominees. Wow! Now there is some creativity goin' on.

I love your list of things you love. My secret favorite show is Ghosthunters. If it's Wed. night, you'll find me in front of the TV watching Ghosthunters. And a fun book to read is Spook by an author whose first name I've forgotten, but whose last name is Roach.

Anyway, here's to Kreativity!

Floating in salt water... Awe..

Too bad it's snowing on the salt water right now.. I miss summer! :)

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

Oh I love your list--Wallace and Grommit is a personal fave at our house and we always do the hand thing and say "Cheese, Grommit" just like Wallace does.
Floating in salt water--that is a lovely thing too--rare for me:)

Rena said...

Oh, I love your list! I'd love to try floating in salt water. I've seen people doing it and it looks amazing. I also have a thing for cheese -- mmm.

BTW -- there's a free giveaway on my blog today for anyone who leaves a comment with a valid email. I hope you can check it out, if you haven't already. :)

Saltwater, cheese, ghosts? Great list!

Thanks for the tag! I made mine into my Art Day, art tips post.

Brenda said...

I love real ghost stories...they scare me to death, but I love watching them...

Paris said...

Congratulations on your award. And your artwork is adorable!! I love it. :) I'll be coming back!

adrienne said...

Sruble - Ha! Now you have me wondering if I could work all seven things into a story...
I like your multi-tasking solution, BTW.

Brenda - Ghost stories are cool! There's a famous haunted house in San Diego called the Whaley House; I want to spend the night there someday :0

Paris - Thank you! Come and visit any time.

Bish Denham said...

Oh, floating on the ocean...I'd spend hours on an inner tube, tethered to a mooring reading a book and sipping limeaid.

Thanks for the award Adrienne!

adrienne said...

Bish - Now I'm really longing for the beach! And you're welcome!

Kelly said...

Mmmmm, I'm a cheese lover too!
