I am honored to be the recipient of the Kreativ Blogger award from my friend Amy Elizabeth. Thank you Amy. You can visit her blog here.
It isn't your usual blog. It is fun, informative and, well, you just never know what to expect.

The requirements are that I thank the person who sent this to me.
List seven interesting things about yourself that readers might find interesting. Hmmmmm
1. I can't sleep unless I have a pile of blankets.
2. Steamed snow crab is my favorite food.
3. I spend one day a week writing at Starbucks.
4. My dog has a bandanna for every holiday and days in between.
5. I have at least six art journals going at this time.
6. I don't know what to do with them when I finish.
7. I'm baking Amish Friendship Bread today.

Thank the blogger who gave you the award and provide a link.
List 7 interesting things about yourself that your readers might find interesting
Nominate 7 other bloggers, provide links, and let them know.

So who do I choose?
Barbara at ArtiphyThe Heart
My art journaling buddy who has taught me so much.
Bonnie at Collage Candy
Great fun stuff and collage happiness.
A little bit of everything, just like life.
A lady who has found her "voice" in art and shares it beautifully.
Nikara Nikira Art
These sketches always astound me. I want to do this.
Ophelia at Ophelias Art
Great collage and mixed-media.
It is unbelievable what people do with things found my the side of the road. I'm always amazed!

I have many others on my blog roll but these are the
ones who caught my eye today.

Congratulations Ladies. I may not always leave comments
but I do enjoy reading.


  1. Hi Rita! thanks for the award--I will be blogging about this in the next few days!!

    1. You are welcome. I hope you enjoy following the little rules. Makes you stop to think.

  2. Thank you, Rita! This is so much fun! Give me a day or two and I'll let you know as soon as I post it! I'm a big fan of steamed snow crab, too! You're making me hungry!

    1. You are welcome. It is kind of fun to have the special little connection with other bloggers for a bit.

  3. Thank you very much, Rita, for the award. I will try to do it in the nearest week, follow the Rules, sounds like fun, even I don't think I have 7 things about myself that will be interesting to other people. :-)

    1. I'm sure you can come up with something. Anybody with art like yours must have interesting tidbits. Just how you must get around to see all these things.

  4. So how did your Amish Friendship bread come out?? I'm bringing starters to PWC tomorrow so hoping someone accepts them. I'm eating mine up and it's amazing how different they can taste when you tweak some of the ingredients. Yum!
