I've been honored


My dear friend Halle has honored me with a Kreativ Blogger award. According to Halle's message "Upon receiving this award I am to tell 7 things about myself and pick 7 others who are deserving of this award." I'll try to do this award justice.
1. I'm a neat freak.
2. I love mathematics, statistics, and research.
3. I'm single, never married, and don't believe I've missed out on anything.
4. These bad economic times don't bother me as much as it does my friends because I've always lived frugally.
5. I've always been a recycler, even when it was not in fashion. Could be because I was born on Earth Day.
6. I love winter and hate summer. Maybe I should say I love the cold and hate heat.
7. I detest the term "list mom" since I'm not a mother to anyone (not even Bleubeard).
Although it was difficult to choose just seven, here are the deserving recipients of this award:
1. http://www.itsallaboutthejourney.typepad.com/ Mary is a talented card maker, photographer, and scrapbooker. You will love her blog and her generous explanations of how she creates each card.
2. http://maryshunt.blogspot.com/ Mar is an amazing artist whose stained glass is incredible. I'm always in awe of her art. She is also always quick to leave a gracious comment.
3. http://sharonkshubert.blogspot.com/ Sharon's work is all over the place. One day she's burning intricate designs into chopsticks, the next is creating the most gorgeous watercolors. Her blog never disappoints.
4. http://www.trashtotreasureart.blogspot.com/ I had never been to Lynn's blog until I saw a link it and loved the name. You won't believe her paper art and stamping.
5. http://bitze.wordpress.com/ Patty is an amazing artist who I "met" during the OWOH giveaway. Anything she makes is stunning. Her art ranges from altered silverware to wood to fabric to stamping to collage. You name it, if it's altered, you'll probably find it on her blog.
6. http://nalasmom.blogspot.com/ I also "met" Donna during the OWOH giveaway. I was fortunate enough to win a mixed media piece and it is fabulous. If you like altered art and a colorful blog, her blog is just the ticket.
7. http://jackiesmithblog.blogspot.com/ You have to go to Jackie's blog because you never know what you're going to see. One time she might be posting lovely beach scenes, the next snow. However, if you love altered art, check out her blog banner. It's to die for.
OK Kreativ Blogger nominees, here is what you need to do:
1. Snag the logo and place it on your blog.
2. Link to the person who sent the award to you. That would be me (http://alteredbooklover.blogspot.com/)
3. Name seven things about yourself people might find interesting.
4. Nominate seven Kreativ Bloggers.
5. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate.
6. Leaves a message on the blog of each of your nominees.
