Kreativ Blogger

My dear friend, Marisa, gave me this "Kreativ Blogger" award. I feel so honored she would pick me as one of her "Kreativ" friends. I think what she does with her sewing machine is amazing! She and her sister, Jenn, even have their own Etsy store, Sycamore Lane. She is such a dear friend and such a blessing to me!
So the way this works is, there are 7 topics that I am supposed to say 7 things about. Here goes!

  2. Our friends Joel and Krista are missionaries in Costa Rico. They have limited internet access right now, but take the most amazing pictures and do some phenomenal video work!

  4. My sister Kim wh o is busy raising 3 boys while pregnant with twins in the middle of nowhere North Dakota--if that doesn't require a large amount of creativity I don't know what does!
  5. My sister Nikki who is raising 3 boys, going to school on and off, working with the children at their church and helping her husband with the youth! Craziness! Just managing that schedule requires a large amount of creativity.
  6. My brother and SIL, Bobby and Tiffany, who are busy raising 3 kids 2 years old and under! Tiffany still has time to make fantastic cakes--check out my sisters' blogs to see some pics!
  7. My mom managed to raise 4 kids on a shoestring budget and now balances "grandmothering" soon to be 13 grandbabies. Her and my dad create fun things in his workshop for all these grandbabies!
Wow! This was a long post--it took a lot longer than I thought it would! Feel free to accept the "award" without completing all the post stuff--you all are crazy busy people! Just wanted you all to know you are loved!

  2. That was a fun post to read, thanks

  3. Enjoyed the post! Hopefully your little one does okay with chocolate if you plan to nurse her/him. I can't eat chocolate and brocolli (I miss them both) right now because it does something terrible to my nursing baby's tummy. Oh well.

    I'm looking forward to hearing about you new arrival from my neighbors!

  4. I enjoyed this post, too. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for your encouragment. I asked for that book you recommended for Christmas- looks good! Congratulations on your little one as well, I'll be praying for you guys. Happy Fall!---Beth
