MarZel at The Play of Light and Shadows blog sent me this lovely award. You have made my day! Many thanks. I can't wait to share the joy!

It isn't every day in which I get recognition for letting my freak flag fly!

Now it is time to spread the joy to a few people who are creative, interesting and busy-busy!

Here are the award rules:

1. Thank the person who gave this to you.
Thank you again, MarZel! I am honored!

2. Copy the logo and place it in your blog.

3. Link the person who nominated you.

4. Name 7 things about yourself that no one would really know.

OK, here we go:

I get up at 5:13 every morning. Not 5:15. Not 5: 20. 5:13. Don't ask why...I don't know that answer. Very OCD of me, no?

I am scared to say that I want to make a living by making and selling things because I think I will jinx my chances. Oh no! I've said too much...

I have a love/hate relationship with junk food. I can go months without touching the stuff, but once I fall off the wagon, look out! Mmmm. Milky Way bars. Then something salty. Then a vat'o'coffee.

I sometimes hold back in my work because I don't want to scare people. Heck, sometimes I scare myself and re-work things so I don't have to admit that I made whatever the frightening item was.

Fall is my favorite time of year. I don't like Summer. Living in CA, it almost seems like a sin to put that in print, but it is true.

I think if I stopped coloring my hair, it would be at least 45% gray. I am tempted to go natural, but I don't think my hubby would love it. I would love to go red, but c'mon! I hardly have time to get the dishes done every morning. The maintenence would be a witch! I would be the mom with the scraggly brownish-gray roots and red tips. Ugh!

I like to imagine myself starring in videos that go along with whatever music is on the radio. Trust me, I may be talentless in the vocal and dancing departments in real life, but I am amazing in my own head. Wish you could join me in there.

5. Nominate seven 'Kreativ Bloggers

Loopy Boopy Art

Apifera Farm

Mealy Monster Land

The Magic Onions

Maygreen Fairies

Bone Head Studio

The Gourdqueen

6. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate.
Done! (See above)

7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them.
I'll get to it tomorrow!
Now, my dear nominees, it is YOUR turn to follow the 7 steps. Thanks for all you do!
Until next time, embrace life's happy surprises!


  1. I can't believe you get up so early! ouch!

  2. Thank You so much Theresa, I will display it PROUDLY on my blog!!!

  3. Thank you my sweet! I too will display it proudly on my blog! This really skeers me but we have many things in common....hum!

  4. Once again... you made me laugh, really laugh. Bollywood came to mind with the last confession. And I am so with you on the dying hair department... once in a while I get a really cute cut... It's lovely when I come home and I feel like a millions dollars BUT... poor hairy is NEVER even blow dried again so, dying it isn't down my alley either.
    Thanks for passing this along to me... I'm honored.
    Blessings and magic.

  5. Ha Theresa you made me laugh too! You are a hoot....thanks for sharing the seven things! I feel you on all of those...really...loving fall, hating haircolor, barely getting to the dishes...believe you can make your living with your wonderful art, though! Don't be afraid to say it to yourself OUT LOUD if necessary and KNOW that is what is real for you!!

  6. Congrats on the award! You have me giggling over here, apparently we have a bit in common ha ha ha ha ;) BIG hugs,
