Kreativ blogger - award!

As I was surfing through my Google Reader this morning, I saw a post about this award, and thought "How nice for the awarded site," one that I thought I was following, but am now. Then off to FB to catch up on the latest from friends, and to my surprise, I got a message from Alicia Marinache. She is such a sweet and humorous person and her creations are to die for. You can see them in her online studio here: All the Pretty Things. This is a marvelous way for all of us to share the joy we get from each others blogs and make wonderful new contacts.
When you receive this award, there are a few rules:
1. Post a link to the person who awarded you
2. Share 7 well-thought out random things about yourself
3. Award to 10 other deserving bloggers and let them know

Now here is the randomness(?) of my mind:

1. Wonder what hubby is making for dinner? Yes, taught him to cook and he loves it (ah, more time to clay play!)

2. I am still laughing out loud over the book by Bill Cosby "Fatherhood." So true it hurts.

3. Slid down here to Florida 14 years ago, because I was tired of black ice, while doing my visiting nursing.

4. So proud of my son, who just got admitted to Syracuse University Law School.

5. Love our rescue labradoodle, Pepper, even if she is crazy enough to growl at bears, but is afraid of armadillos when she is walked in the evening.

6. Only have one brother, who now lives with us, once I went to Arizona and pulled him out of an Assisted Living Facility.

7. Already working on the Christmas gift list. Have to get an early start with 5 children (all grown) and my 9 grandchildren!

Just 10 other bloggers? But there are so many deserving! Here is my list (in alphabetical order-the only reasonable way to do it) and the reason I am passing the award on.

Creative Chaos Sandra McGriff is as unpredictable as her eclectic gemstone jewelry, but can always be counted on to give advice to anyone who asks.

Creative Critters Michelle is not only a great sculptor, but also the curator of the very popular Artfire Blog Polymer Clay Smooshers.

Daisychain Jewellery Joanne Tinley, an amazing British metalwork artist, with a tremendous following on this side of the pond.

Fabric of My Life Shelley Graham Turner is a fantastic polymer clay artist, and an even more fantastic human being with a heart of gold.

lil mummy likes Ginger Bishop is a fun and bubbly person with a love of nature and wonderful beading and weaving skills.

Lorelei's Blog What can be said about Lorelei Eurto, that hasn't been said already?

Melinda Orr Designs Melinda, a true metal and clay artist, may not blog often, but can always be found helping others in the Creative Bead Chat

Moobie Grace Designs Tania Spivey, another British artisan, whose work is unconventional, but oh so easy on the eye.

Polymer Clay Tutorials Cindy Lietz, the polymer clay tutor par excellence, to whom many owe there creativity in polymer clay.

Tesori Travoti - Treasures Found Erin Prais-Hintz, the extraordinary, published jewelry designer, and creator of Simple Truths.

Have fun meeting some new friends!
