My First Award!

Booklogged has awarded me the Kreativ Blogger Award. It's my first blogging award and I'm speechless. (Yeah, right! When has that ever happened?) I'm honored that she thinks my blog is creative, even if she may be a little biased.

Booklogged lives in Utah where she is wife to Candleman, mother to 4 daughters, and grandma to two adorable kids. She's also aunt to some wonderful nieces and nephews! Booklogged reads more books in one month than most people read in their lifetime. She also makes and sells wonderful hats and scarves here. Take a look and if you're wondering what to get me for Christmas - I like the Marionberry scarf. :)

Now along with the award, there's a meme. I have to complete this and forward the award to others. Here goes:

Thanks for mentioning me, Julie. Will you feel badly if I don't do it on my blog?

Also, I loved the tattoo one again. Hee hee! Yesterday I had to start writing a list of reasons to get married. I mention this because it was on your list of things to do. I have a pendulum with my feelings toward it, and it has swung the wrong way again. I am trying to fight it, though, and that is progress!

julie said...

Cardine, no I wouldn't feel bad! In fact, I was going to mention that nobody has to feel like they have to do it - I'm not that kind of tagger. :) Hmmm. I'm intrigued by your list of reasons for getting married!

Mellissa said...

Wow, thanks, Julie! It's good for me to blog, but it's great when I know other people are also enjoying what I have to share. You are fabulous! And I thought that before you passed on the award.

Melissa said...

Thanks Julie, I apprieciate it. I do enjoy playing around with my backgrounds. I too really enjoy some of the other blogs you mentioned and will have to check out the others.

Melissa said...

Sorry, I forgot spell check. It should be "appreciate". :)

tearese said...

Awe, Thanks Julie!
You and your tattoo.

Missy, I am so glad you started a blog - I definitely enjoy what you have to share! Thanks, I think you're fabulous as well!

Melissa, I seriously get jealous seeing how cute your blog looks. And, I wish I was as crafty as you! Instead, I'm going to enjoy the fruits of your labor and purchase some of your tutus! (Just so you know, misspelled words are always welcome here - I certainly misspell enough of them!)

Tearese, you're welcome! My tattoo. Teehee.
