Catching up - Awards and Thanks (part one)

I have been very delinquent in acknowledging and thanking a number of people for the blog awards they have sent to me. I never seem to have the time to do them justice and post all the answers and links, etc.

I actually won't be able to complete all the rules tonight - my day took an unexpected turn when I had to get to the doctor for some follow up on blood work - turns out I am severely anemic (which explains why I have been having so much trouble summoning the energy to do all the projects I have lined up!). I have started on lots of iron and hope that things will balance out soon, but it was a bit disconcerting to hear "the doctor wants you to be seen today!" on my answering machine this morning. I had planned to do this post today but there are only so many hours in the day so I'll have to split it into two parts...

Heather gave me this Kreativ Blogger award - Check out her blog HERE - she has lots of layouts and cards to inspire you (and two adorable kids!). Thanks Heather!

As part of the Kreativ Blogger award I am supposed to share a few things about myself and pass the award along to 7 fellow bloggers. I will be back to complete this soon.

Three people (!) gave me this "Kreative Blogger" award. Many thanks to all of you!

Cindy Lou - Check out her blog HERE to see lots of great projects - if you are a tear bear fan you won't want to miss this!

Laurinda - Check out her blog HERE - she is always coming up with great projects and does so much to help other Cricut lovers with the Design Studio.

Sue - Check out her blog HERE - she has lots of nice flower cards and adorable inchies to inspire you!

Here are the RULES for this AWARD:
1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs, letting them know they have been nominated.

Leslie gave me this "Premio Dardos" award quite a while ago but we had some trouble connecting so I could find out what I should do. She is part of a group called "Five Scribes" and you can check out their blog HERE - Leslie writes screenplays, along with several other jobs and her Cricut addiction. Thanks Leslie for this honor!

Here is some information about this award:

This award 'acknowledges the values that every Blogger displays in their effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values with each message they write.'
Awards like this have been created with the intention of promoting community among Bloggers. It's a way to show appreciation and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web."
Here are the rules:
1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who granted it to you, along with his/her blog link.
2. Pass the award to (15) other blogs that you feel are worthy of this recognition. Remember to contact each of them to let them know they have been chosen as recipients.

Brandy gave me this award quite a while ago - somehow I missed it and just found an unpublished comment so I want to acknowledge it now. You can visit her blog HERE - lots of great ATCs and tags!
Here are the rules for this award:
1. The winner may put the logo on their blog.
2. Put a link to the person who sent you the award.
3. Nominate 5 blogs.
4. Put links to their blogs.
5. Leave a message for your nominees.

This award is from Etha - you can check out her blog HERE - there are lots of great projects and some clever organizing tips.

This award goes to people who you feel show great attitude & gratitude.

Linda F gave me both of these awards - you can find her blog HERE to see lots of lovely watercolor that she uses for cards. Thanks so much Linda for the honor.

The first award was originated by Kellie Winnell. Kellie started this award to thank all of the people who follow and comment on your blog. This should be passed on to 5 people. The second award is The Gift of Love Award. There are no specifics for this award you just need to give it to 5 people.

Whew - I think that is enough awards for a while!

It is late and I need to get some sleep (!) so I will try to edit this post and add award recipients tomorrow or sometime over the weekend. I hope that I have caught up and acknowledged all the awards that have been sent - at times my email can be fairly overwhelming and things move down the list too quickly - I am trying to do better with "triage" when I first see a message(!)

Thanks to everyone who liked my blog enough to send an award - it is good to feel appreciated.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I love to hear from the people who read my blog. I moderate all comments to keep spam off the blog without making you decode the squiggly letters so your comment may not appear immediately.
