I was so excited to receive this award from Sandra! I must say, of all the awards I've seen posted on people's blogs, this is the one that caught my eye. Maybe it's the colors, maybe it's the pattern that is so like an Amy Butler fabric, or the random spelling of "Kreativ" which is how the word would be spelled by a German...whatever the reason, it's one I've coveted! Thank you so much, Sandra!

As a recipient, I'm to blog about my favorite 7 things and then nominate 7 other blogs for the award!

Seven of My Favorite Things:

1. My son's smile. I love everything about it: his soft cheeks, his dimple, his bright eyes -- everything!
Numbers 1 and 2

2. Summertime swimming. When the outdoor pool in our community opens for the season, my favorite thing is to go there, swim, and then lie in the warm sun. Even though I'm less than one mile from home, if I close my eyes I feel I'm on a beach vacation!

3. Godiva chocolate cheesecake.

4. Project Runway. I can hardly wait for it to start up again this summer!

Christian was my favorite designer so far!

5. Jane Austen. I've read all of her novels over and over again but I never tire of them -- or of watching the film adaptations. In fact, whenever I feel depressed, a surefire comfort is to plug in an Austen film and get lost in it. I'd love to someday own an antique set of her novels.

6. Fresh sourdough bread, like what you get at Boudin in San Francisco. I miss it like crazy.

7. Flowers. I love hydrangeas, geraniums, peonies, and anything purple!

Now, the seven friend's blogs I've chosen to nominate are:


You'll want to visit each and every one of these artist's blogs to see their Kreativ-ity firsthand!

Congratulations, ladies!
