I've Been Nominated for a Blogging Award!

Katherine Sands from Illinois dyes luscious silk scarves, among other things- and she kindly nominated me for the Kreativ Blogging Award. Considering she also nominated Rayna Gillman and Denise Aumick, I'm honored!

The rules are:

1. The winner may put the logo on her blog.
2. Put a link to the person you got the award from in your blog.
3. Nominate 5 blogs.
4. Put links to the blogs.
5. Leave a message for your nominees.

Like Katherine, I'd like to nominate bloggers that perhaps haven't gotten something like this previously. So, my five nominees are:

Karoda at Seamless Skin. Karoda is both thoughtful and thought-provoking, and creates fiber art in that same vein. I love reading about where her muse takes her.

Nellie at Nellie's Needles is one of the most creative bloggers I know. She is generous in sharing her processes, and has created a series based on the moods of Lake Michigan that is stunning. She uses leftover fabric bits and thread to create her unique pieces.

Judy in the Dyes creates gorgeous silk scarves and Complexitees- T shirts with wonderful surface design! We also became political soulmates the past few months, two blues adrift in seas of red.

Lisa in Boise writes about her life in Idaho, raising a daughter and volunteering at the art museum when she is not creating. I love how her art seems to find its way into almost every aspect of her family's life.

Kathy Nida reminds me that creativity can be nurtured in the middle of apparent chaos. She earns my everlasting admiration just by being a junior high school teacher- but she has two children of her own in that age range, and she manages to make wonderful quilts in her own unique, graphic style. She pulls no punches in her blog, it is a chronicle of her life.

I have lots of blogs I follow, but these five just jumped out at me. Have a look, enjoy their one of a kind creations!

She beat me to it, oh well. You have my vote, too.

Thank you Beverly for the honor! I've been wanting to do a post on blogs that inspire me so this is an incentive :)

Thank you, Beverly. I'm honored to be included with your other choices. Most, including you, are the ones that would get this award if I were to pass it on.
