Sharing Blog Love - Part 2

Carolyn V. from Checkerboard Squares awarded me the Creative Writing Award. To accept this award, I'm required to name 10 things that make me happy and to pass it along.

1. my kids
3. coffee
4. gooey, bready food
5. where I live
6. the color yellow
7. a clean house
8. books
9. my blog buddies
10. summer vacation

I pass the love to:

Tamika @ The Write Worship - It isn't easy to find an award this lady doesn't have, and we all know she deserves every award we can find to give her!

Tere Kirkland
@ The Lesser key - I'm still bumming that I didn't win her fun and creative Mardis Gras contest! Ha ha.

Jonathon Arnston @ Doing Odd Things - I think we can all agree that when it comes to creativity and making others happy, Jon is a master.

Sharon Mayhew @ Random Thoughts - She was my first "real" commenter on this blog, and I will love her forever for that. It's because of Sharon that I first believed someone might actually like reading what I have to write.

Julie @ Silver Lining - I'm still recovering from her delicious post about Chinese New Year, and be sure to check out her WIPe out post.


I received the Over the Top Award from Kelly Lyman @ Kelly's Compositions. Thanks, Kelly!

Shannon--you are such a supportive person. Thank you for the blog award, it was very sweet of you to think of me. You amaze me! Just when I think I've discovered a new blog that no one knows about, I hit post a comment and there you've already discovered it. You really do a great job on being supportive to new bloggers. WTG on 240 (and counting) followers. WTG!

Ah, a clean house makes me happy too, which might mean that I'm not happy very often because my house is always a mess. But, a dirty house doesn't make me unhappy. In fact, maybe because the house is dirty so much it makes me appreciate it when it is clean. :)

Congrats on all the awards.

Susan Fields said...

Congrats on all the awards - hooray! And Sharon Mayhew was one of my first real commenters, too, but since we used to live only a few blocks away and our kids went to school together and we walked the dogs together, etc., she really had no choice. :)

lisa and laura said...

Shannon, you rock. You really bring a light to the blogosphere which clearly touches a lot of people based on all these fab awards!
