Blogger awards

Lynne, at Lynne's Little Corner of the World, was sweet enough to give me these two awards. To be thought of as creative and thoughtful means a lot to me, and especially so because if Lynne hadn't passed these on to me, she is one of the first people I would have thought deserving of them. Here's what they mean: The Creative Blogger Award is for those who bring unique and creative elements to their blogs. For those who incorporate art, music, creative writing, photo's, and other beautiful visual effects into their website. For those who put a unique spin on things and come up with new ideas. This award is for the artsy, the funky, the inventor, and even the rebel. This award is for those creative individuals who stand out from the crowd. The Thoughtful Blogger Award is for those who answer blog comments, emails, and make their visitors feel at home on their blogs. For the people who take others' feelings into consideration before speaking out and who are kind and courteous. Also for all of those bloggers who spend so much of their time helping other bloggers design, improve, and fix their sites. This award is for those generous bloggers who think of others.
Thanks, Lynne, I'm flattered. (blush) . . . but I could use a little help figuring out how to add these buttons to my sidebar, so I'm not so sure the technie part applies to me!
In turn, I would like to recognize the following bloggers.
Kim at Mom Musings - I love visiting Kim's blog. I feel like we cold sit down and have a cup of tea and find so much to talk about. She is thoughtful in her comments and creative in the photos she shares of her beautiful family.
Kris at Garden's by the Lake - If you haven't visited Kris's gardens, you don't know what you're missing! Everytime I stop by, my heart just sighs at the beautiful photographs.
Tristi at Tristi's Blogspot - Tristi's blog is a wonderful assortment of book reviews, writing lessons, and just musings about life in general. I never know what to expect. I love her sense of humor and I suspect there's some rebel in there, too!
Mel at Actual Unretouched Photo - Mel is a riot. She has a way of hitting the nail on the head when it comes to this whole motherhood things. She absolutlely puts a unique spin on things. She also has a terrific website on weight-loss.
Judith at Flight Song -- Judith has the heart of a poet. She is both thoughtful and creative, and her posts are thought-provoking and beautiful. I love her perspective.
This has been fun! I love reading everyone's blogs and appreciate the lovely comments you all take time to leave for me;)

Congratulations on your awards....I love your website as well, and I would have applied most the lovely comments you made about everyone to you!

Have a wonderful day and bask in the glory!

Stacy at Exceedingly Mundane said...

Congratulations, very much deserved! :)

You do deserve these! I enjoy reading you Karen....and you've got some new ones for us to peruse too, thanks.

Tristi Pinkston said...

Aw, shucks, Karen!! Thank you!!

Hey Karen,

I just put mine on my sidebar -- it was pretty easy. Go to, put in your passwords, then click on layout. Then click on add page element, add picture, and then tell the computer where to find the images.

If you run into trouble and wouldn't mind sharing your password with me, I'll go in and do it -- I promise to forget your password immediately afterward. :)

Tristi Pinkston said...

Hmmm -- if it's html, I'm useless. Rats - I really wanted to help! Sniff! :)

Thanks Karen! I always love having you visit my blog - your comments are always lovely! (and much appreciated!) I'm glad you enjoy your visits there as much as I enjoy visiting your blog.

Congrats to you - Lynne couldn't have chosen a more deserving person for these awards. I love your beautiful writing!

Congratulations Karen for both well deserved awards!


Judith said...

Karen, I don't know if you've had a chance to read the post I did about your passing these awards on. It was a big surprise, of course, and I so appreciate your comments.

Anne Bradshaw said...

This really is a lovely blog site--which is why you're on my favorites list :-) Congratulations, Karen.

kim said...

Karen,what a sweet surprse! I could sure say the exact same comments you made about my blog about yours! You surely qualified to receive them! I always enjoy reading your comments at my spot--and I love to come over and read your latest entry. Thanks so much for recognizing me--now I need to figure out how to put those awards in my sidebar! :) Have a wonderful Saturday.

Great job Karen! Congrats on the award and it is so deserved!
Happy blogging to you friend!

kim said...

Hi Karen--your comments in my blog made me laugh this morning. ;) I don't know how many times I proof read my blog, hit publish, read it again and go "Aghh!" I must go back and hit edit at least two times per post--and sometimes I notice a mistake a day later!

I don't think I have read the Berg book you mentioned, although I went through a Berg phase a couple of years ago. Her writing style is definitely easy to get drawn into--
Blessed Sunday to you--

Congrats on your win!

Karen said...

Congratulations! You are very deserving!
Blessings and Hugs!

Karen! Guess what book came in the mail today from a fellow paperback swapper?? It is an Elizabeth Berg book, guessed it! We Are All Welcome Here. It had been on my wish list on that site and my number had finally come up. What a fun treat and I must say it looks good. It might even make it on our trip with me next week.

Congratulations on your well-deserved awards! I am in total agreement with Lynne. You are both creative and thoughtful!

I've got a present for you, Karen . .
