A meme, an award & the giveaway

First the award because getting one is very cool & makes me feel all warm & fuzzy! (I did say fuzzy, not furry, Mamahut!)

I have to thank the wonderful MamaHut for this lovely & pretty award. I love how these things circulate, but I've never seen this one & actually feel good about accepting it. I can do creative. ;) A huge thanks to my new friend at MamaHut's House. She is very cool. I'm glad I accidentally stumbled across her blog - I think it may have been via Candid Carrie's Fx4.


A pretty award & this is what I will do. I will list 6 things that make me happy. Then I will give it away to some of my faves. They can drop by if they choose to accept. I decided I like to let people choose if they want the award or not. That idea came from MamaHut herself. Thanks!

6 Things that make me happy!

1. When my daughter is being crabby & my 7 year old walks over to her & instead of being an annoying booger & mocking her tears, he gives her a hug.

2. When my oldest here actually does the things that he's supposed to without complaint or argument.

3. Anytime we go out to dinner, we always come home with the best feelings ( even with crabby kids) and always have a good time after - just hanging out the rest of the evening. It's true quality family time. The best memories often come from these adventures.

4. A really good cup of coffee that I didn't have to make.

5. My computer behaving.

6. Making stuff - jewelry & graphics mainly.

Now - I will pass this one to another person who I know is creative, but she doesn't think she is. To 5 someones I love to read because they are awesomely funny and inspire good emotions (and all but one have been stalked frequented by me for a long time). A fabulous photographer that makes her own rules & is insightful & fun to read. To a good writer who is new to my blogroll, but I found her via MamaKat and I really like her blog - she is very creative. Another one I found via MamaKat, because she, too is very creative & a good writer. And I can't leave out MamaKat because she is all of the above - I don't get around to her as often as I'd like, but she is a fantastic blogger and has been on my blog roll for a very long time. Another recent bloggy friend that I admire because she is stronger than she'll ever know and a genuinely wonderful person. Another couple of someones because they are both creative & fun to read, too. And another bloggy friend I've made recently that is good at telling it like it is & being honest. Then there's the noble one. She is inspiring and extremely creative. I've been following her blog the longest, I think. This list is getting too long, but there are too many of you I like...and I will feel bad for leaving some of you out (cause I have to - otherwise this will be a very, very long list).

My list:

Billie!
O'Neal
Candance
Jaci
Carrie
Outnumbered
The Rulemaker
Jenni
Shanna
Carey Sue
MamaKat
Susie
Scargosun
Michelle
Noble Pig

You all can figure out for yourselves who is who. I think you'll know, though. And - don't worry if you don't want to post this. Just know that I was thinking about you & mean what I say.



Second thing - the drawing for the giveaway will be posted tomorrow evening after 5pm. Andy had to go to bed after Cub Scouts & I need his help for the drawing. So, we will be doing that after he gets home from school.

Now, I'm finding myself too tired to do the other meme. It is 4:30 in the morning (I had a late nap) and I'm thinking I'll do the other meme tomorrow. It's so worthy.

Congrats of your Kreative award, very deserving. I am off to check out some of your nominees...

Ummmm, I saw my name on the list but didn't see "nice boobs" in the why's... J/K! So that award up there is for me if I want it? I think it's perty, it looks like the front cover of an expensive scrap booking paper set, like the ones I see sometimes and wish I actually DID scrap booking! At least I got the first 7 yrs of our life together developed, even if they ARE still in the paper envelopes in a giant Rubbermaid out in the garage ;).

Way off topic again, sorry bout that! Thank you though for thinking of me, I feel all warm and furry (cause I'm drinking the coffee *I* had to make! And we're out of 1/2 & 1/2 boohoo!) AND fuzzy inside!

Hi!! I wandered over from Jaci's blog cause you said I was "spit worthy" and I just wanted you to know that was one of the nicest compliments I've gotten in a LONG time and since this is the internet and you can't hear my voice I'm worried that might sound snotty but it so wasn't meant to be becuase I LIKE making people laugh so if I made you laugh then I'm happy and now I'm going to go check out the rest of your blog.

*inhales deep breath*

Thank you so much for including me in your list:-) I am very honored and if I had to guess, I would say that I was one of the "creative and fun to read" blogs. But, that's just a guess:-) Thanks again...that's soooooo sweet:-)

I am so excited that you gave me this award--although I don't have a creative bone in my body! (I don't mind...) I can enjoy yours and others creativity!

Thanks again! :)

Sounds like you sleep like I do...in spurts. I think you are very creative. I haven't seen anything that you have made that I don''t like...I love it allllll. Now go get some sleep!

Candance said...

Dang, Girl. You said I was creative. That's so cool. I'll totally put that award up (if I can do it without messing up the beautimous layout you created for me) cause it's pretty and it says creative and I want to be creative really bad!!

O'Neal (The woman in charge around here) said...

Are you still holding that award for me? LOL! Sorry it took so long to finally come pick it up, I'm working my way down my to-do list. I'm almost all the way through August! As in LAST August! ;)
