Still playing make believe.


Kreativ Blogger Award

Yesterday I received this:

Isn’t it pretty? It came from another blogger. Her blog is RELYING DAILY ON JESUS.

Thank you, Kim S!

I don’t know Kim, and since I’d never heard of Kreativ Blogger Award, I googled it. (I knew if I didn’t, my sons would so I might as well.)

Here’s what I found– It’s not really an award. It’s more of a pat-on-the-back-chain letter. Each person who receives the nomination is supposed:

  • Thank the nominator. (Thanks again, Kim!)
  • Put the logo on their blog. (It is very pretty, isn’t it?)
  • Link to the person who nominated you.
  • Tell seven things about yourself that others might find interesting. Oy. I’m not sure there are seven things about me I don’t blog about on a regular basis. Hm.
  1. I’m double jointed.
  2. Double jointed isn’t really having two joints. It’s loose ligaments holding the joints together. (I think)
  3. I used to be able to join my hands together, step through my arms, bring them up behind me and over my head to where they started.
  4. I’ve never worked in a freak show at the circus.
  5. I had to have shoulder surgery several years ago. (The reward for being double jointed.)
  6. Being double jointed isn’t as fun as it sounds.
  7. I can whistle through my teeth.
  • Nominate other blogs.
  1. Literally Delicious (fantastic recipes and great stories by one of the best writers I know.)
  2. A Big Story to Tell (she really does.)
  3. Knitting with Olof.

So there you go. 🙂 Go forth and be creative–er–Kreativ.
