Award and Give-away!

Thought I'd give you all a break from Italy! Rather than completely follow the rules as provided below, nominating 7 blogs to receive this award, consider yourself Kreative because you are! and simply list 7 things on your blog about yourself that others might find interesting. Post a link back to this blog and leave me a comment on any of the posts about Italy. Why? Anyone who leaves a comment will be given a chance to receive something from me. Right now I have no idea what that might be, but it could be a small quiltie with imagery from Italy. Deadline to do this is the last day of July.

1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award - You will love Marilyn's inspiring blog!
Thank you Marilyn for this honor, I'm touched!
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog (and it's okay to brag).
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award. (that would be me, Gail, ExpressionStudio)

4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
1. In the 80's I took aerial photos of the Montery Peninsula for publication in
the Pine Cone. (I got terribly airsick; it took hours to walk it off. But, because
the photos were published I reconnected with my oldest cousin who was passing
through Carmel.)
2. Interviewed Clint Eastwood in the mid 80's when he ran for mayor of Carmel.
Three friends and I were thinking about writing a book on creativity. Clint was
gracious, funny, and flirty. (the book idea fell apart.)
3. I've been a passenger on a Harley.
4. I've seen some of the greatest sights in Europe, but have never been to the Grand
Canyon which is practically in my own back-yard!
5. Over the years I've been to 4 Neil Diamond concerts and 2 Celtic Woman and am
hoping to see Cher and Lord of the Dance before the end of the year.
6. I lived in a rustic cabin in the Big Sur area for nearly 5 years. Chopped wood for
heat and had a large vegetable garden. We didn't have TV or radio and needed to
drive 1/2 a mile on a dirt road to get to the main canyon road and then 4 miles to
Highway 1. It was a 30 minute drive to Carmel so if you ran out of something you
made do! (Now I can't live without AC, the Internet, and multiple TV channels!)
7. If it isn't obvious - I teach myself everything I want to know about!
5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers (you're all nominated!)
6. Post links to the 7 blogs your nominate. (post your link when you leave a comment
letting me know that you've posted 7 interesting things about yourself.)
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs, letting them know they have been nominated.
(feel free to either list blogs, #5, or create your own give-away.)

Note: if you don't have a blog you can list the 7 things in under my comments. Also, if
you need directions on how to copy and paste the logo and award info to your blog
feel free to email me:

Have fun with this! I look forward to reading your posts!! And remember the give-away!

Wow, your 7 facts about yourself are really interesting. I am quite envious that you've seen Neil Diamond and I hope you get to see Cher and Lord of the Dance. I have seen photographs of the Big Sur and it looks beautiful. It sounds a great way to live.

I won't take you up on naming my own 7 facts, sorry but I enjoyed yours :o)

I lived in AZ off and on for a number of years, but have been (only) three times and would go back in a heart beat ... you really ought to make an effort to see it ... and yes, yes, I know ... it really is just a big hole ... still think you should plan a trip ... during the week ... in October or November. :)
