Many thanks to Stacy (she sets the bar on what a cool mom should be like), Nancy (another cat lover - we're automatically friends), Sherril, Ann (I met both these ladies in LA last year and it really was like meeting the celebrities of PR), and Adriana (undoubtedly the most stylish woman in the mountain standard time zone) who passed along the Kreative Blogger award to me!

I became curious as to the origin, so I clicked and clicked to follow the links back. It wasn't long before I was transported to Norway, browsing various knitted garments, snowy outdoor landscapes, and bulbs just starting to sprout from the soil (indoors!). But then I got caught in a tangled web (much like is happening here) of blogs awarding and being awarded by the same group of friends, and I just got stuck. Anyway, it's interesting to see how this stuff spreads!

The rules
1. Copy the award to your site
2. Link to the person from whom you received the award
3. Nominate 7 other bloggers
4. Link to those on your blog
5. Leave a message on the blogs you nominated

People, I follow a lot of "Kreativ" blogs! So here is a very small sampling of those that deserve this award:

Barrientos - Did you see his Valentino knockoff? heart flutters

Wall St by Day : Hardcore Crafter by Night - Cindy is living the dream (just enrolled in fashion school).

The last stitch - I'd love to meet Johanna in person for fika and fabric shopping.

Fehr Trade - Melissa actually makes all the garments that I daydream about sewing.

Lower your presser foot - I know Kristy is too busy with her new little munchkin to be reading blogs, but her maternity wardrobe was the best ever.

Allison C Sewing Gallery - I want her wardrobe. Period.

Couture et Tricot - Tany, the woman who needs no introduction!

Now, don't feel obligated to keep it going. I know I myself am always tempted to let these things die. Not tonight, though :)

I'll take you up for the fika offer any day! Thank you for the nomination

Congrats on the award ;o) A chance you didn't let it die because thanks to your post I'm still discovering new blogs.

I also love learning of new blogs and being connected to other parts of the sewing world!

Congrats on the award!

Hi Christina,
Thank you so much for nominating me, though I'm sure if you saw my whole wardrobe you would want it less! Great idea to follow the trail through, I've discovered quite a few new blogs through these awards.

Congratulations! And Tim Gunn - want to make it a sew-along? I need all the extra motivation to stick to the plan.
