7 Favorite New Blogs

Thank you Donatella! She awarded me a Kreative Blogger Award, and you find her lovely blog here.

Here are the rules:
1. Thank the person who gave this to you.
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.
5. Nominate seven 'Kreativ Bloggers'
6. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them.

Seven Things about Me
  1. Seven sometimes seems like a very high number!
  2. Even though I love dessert, I really dislike whipped cream, mousse, or anything really mushy.
  3. I have a little bit of paint on my fingers as I type this. Why? We painted our kitchen today!!
  4. When I saw Avatar on DH's birthday, I got a whopping headache and felt very sick to my stomach. Was that motion sickness?? (Or just a very long movie?)
  5. Figure skating is my favorite part of watching the winter Olympics.
  6. I'm afraid to hike in bear country, and the idea of mountain lions creeps me out.
  7. In December 2008, just as I started to blog, I also was wishing for a supportive creative community. I had no idea that my blogging friends would become a big part of that for me. (I love all my real life creative buddies too!)
Phew! Glad that's over! On to the interesting part....

7 Kreativ Blogs

You know I love reading lots of blogs. Here are 7 favorites that I've recently started following.

This I Choose where my real life weaving friend Pam documents her projects

Tuesday Weavers
: A weaving group that weaves together on Tuesdays. I practically want to move to Tennessee so I can weave with them!

Acorn to Oak features lots of different projects (and you know how I like variety!)

The Jolly Bee
is another blog with a variety of beautiful projects. (And her mother is a weaver!)

Homespun Fiber also has a variety of projects, including weaving.

Atelier 44
Thank goodness for Google Translate, so I can see Marion's creative genius in action with spinning, weaving, dyeing, knitting and more!

versponnen-verwebt where I can see what Wiebke's up to, including weaving, spinning and knitting. She helped answer a Toika question that had me stumped earlier this winter. Thanks Wiebke!!

Thanks for the award Donatella!!

Y'all just come to East Tennessee! Thank you so much for the shout-out! We do have such a wonderful time being together on Tuesdays, and we get a little weaving done, too! We sure do enjoy your blog. Keep up the good work!

Thanks Sue....It's great getting to know you more. I wouldn't hike in bear country either, though I've had a few run ins with bears at our lakeside camp in the Adirondacks. It was mostly me looking out the window at bears in the woods. But, it was definitely too close for comfort.

I'll have to think about my answers -- if you ask me, there's not much to know about me (no big secrets). It's all out there on my blog for the world to see!

Acorn to Oak said...

Thank you so much! I appreciate the award very much. It means a lot to know that you are reading and enjoying my blog. I think I'll take a day or two to put together my award post as I need to figure who I will give the awards to and how to answer the question of seven things about me. Off the top of my head I can't think of a thing. lol Thank you, again! :-)

Sue, I would too would move just to weave with the Tuesday weavers!
I'm going to have to go check out those new to me blogs. Thank you!
Oh and walking/hiking in bear and cougar country, not all that bad but it feels safer on horseback....;-)
I like the figure skating too, but I enjoyed most of the skating, sledding events.
You don't like Mousse???

Julie said...

Thank you! I will work on this when I'm off from work. I know my blog is a crazy mix of all I do but its all the things I love!

Road trip to Tennessee!!! (Maybe someday!)

Luckily, I don't have to worry about bears and mountain lions around here...but if we do go to Banff it will be another story.

I really appreciate all the creativity in the blogosphere!!

Blog on!

Oh funny, I don't like whipped cream either. It feels oily in my mouth. Ian wanted to see Avatar on Christmas Day and it gave me motion sickness. Glad to have company.
