Creative Blogger Award

A huge thank-you to Rene (the blogger behind Periwinkle Pursuits) for nominating me for the Creative Blogger Award! I am very new here so I feel honored that my blog was acknowledged with the nomination! Rene has a wonderful blog herself, where she shares her creative pursuits as she makes her way through a life with fibromyalgia and raises awareness for the same.


Here are the rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  2. Share five facts about yourself.
  3. Nominate at least 5 other bloggers and add their links.
  4. Notify the bloggers you included.
  5. Keep the rules in your post.


Five facts about me (that you probably didn’t know):

  • A long time ago, when I was in middle/high school, my mom wanted me to take self-defense lessons. So I trained in Shorin-Ryu karate. I am a black belt (1st dan).
  • Sometimes I have trouble making my left and right brain hemispheres talk to each other, even though they both work perfectly fine by themselves. As such, I don’t always understand the musical difference between punk rock and heavy metal, but I like one and not the other. I will also be able to hum a classical piece (so I obviously know it) but will not be able to remember the name of it.
  • I have a love-hate relationship with my hair. It is long and thick, and I love the way it looks when it behaves. Trouble is, it’s a problem child and doesn’t always behave. Then I just look like Joey Ramone (which I don’t mind either).
  • I may have had a past life as a fish. I absolutely love being in the water, and would like to train as a scuba diver one day. Between asthma and fibromyalgia, I am not sure if that will ever come true, but a girl can dream!
  • When I am stressed out, the mess that I live in suddenly becomes very apparent, and I go on a cleaning spree. This is about the only way the apartment ever really gets cleaned.


My nominations/blogs I would love for others to check out:

  1. Fruitful Dark
  2. Isabella El-Hasan
  3. All Things Chronic
  4. VisualAtelier
  5. Jill Millward Artwork
  6. The Doodle Chronicles Blog
  7. The Invisible F

Thanks once again to Rene for the kind nomination!!

  1. Sometimes, when I need chocolate, I’ll buy a whole bag of individually-wrapped treats and keep some in my purse. Then, when I’m running errands, I pass them out like… well, like awards. (You thought I was going to say candy, didn’t you?)

    To the nice lady at the bank, here you go. She was surprised and delighted, which delighted me. To the cashier at Walgreens, here, have some chocolate and have a nice day. Why am I telling you this story? Because it would be nice if I could award chocolates to all the nice bloggers in the blogosphere.

    So, here, have a virtual Russell Stover’s dark chocolate and coconut confection. And again, thanks for thinking of me. πŸ™‚

    1. Haha!! I love the analogies you make! They are so, dare I say, creative!! πŸ˜€ Dark chocolate is my absolute favorite type of chocolate so thank you indeed for reminding me of that!
      Like you said, it’s all about making the connections and hoping to bring some bit of joy to the people you share your days with. πŸ™‚ So in lieu of an “award”, I offer you a whole box of your favorite delightful chocolates!!! ❀ Hope you have a wonderful day!
