Kreativ Blogger Award

I was very surprised and honored to receive this Kreative Blogger Award from a newfound friend from the blogging community, Liz Holm . If you haven't "met" Liz yet, you are in for a treat. She is an artist with not only incredible artistic talent but with writing skills to match. With the heart of an angel, she will become "your new best friend". Liz is so attentive to her on-line acquaintances, always there for you with helpful advice, and always, always with words of praise and encouragement. Liz has a way of instilling in you the desire to become a better artist. Visit her blog and become a member of her ever growing community. Thank you, Liz!

The award entails linking back to the person who sent the award, listing 7 random things you love, and sending the award on to others.

Seven things I love! Family, Friends, Faith, Travel, any good art and design, a great bargain, and did  I mention Chocolate? There are too many things in this great life to mention, a grandchild saying "I love you, Mimi" for no reason at all, the changing of seasons, a sunny day, a good book or good music, hiking in the mountains or a stroll on the beach, the good feeling after a Yoga class. Hey, that's way more than seven!

There are also way too many great artists in the blogging community to mention, but here are seven that I enjoy following.

Thanks again, Liz, and to all of you in the blogging community who are so open and giving with your artistic talents!



  1. Gosh, Ann, thank you! (blushing). To borrow a phrase from your talented husband, I'm not sure I can get through the door now with the gigantic head I'm toting around now ;-)
    Wonderful list of "loves" and terrific links to other great artists.
    I'm inspired by you.

  2. Ann, Thank you so much for gifting me with an award. I am honored to be a part of your network.

  3. Thank you, Ann. What a treat! I love your 7 + loves, and share many. Painting is my newest love, and I sincerely appreciate the shout-out--it's a pleasure to be among the company of all you included.

  4. Thank you for the blog award Ann! You have put me in some amazing company!

  5. Thanks for the blog award! I am deeply flattered. It is kind words and support like yours that get me through those painting slumps and moments of self doubt! It is greatly appreciated.
