Kreativ Blogger Award

Kreativ Blogger AwardI am so happy to announce that I have just received my first blogger award! Woo! Thank you very much to Milly Marie at Imaginary~Dreamer, who nominated me for this award. I may seem a little bashful about it, but I am quite grateful. :)

Here's how the award works:
  • Thank the person who gave this to you.
  • Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
  • Link the person who nominated you.
  • Name seven things about yourself that no one would really know.
  • Nominate seven "Kreativ Bloggers."
  • Post links to the seven blogs you nominate.
  • Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them.

Seven Things About Me
  1. I'm a rather crafty gal when I have the motivation. I make books, knit, crochet, and sew. I'm currently knitting a blanket for myself, crocheting a granny square blanket for my boy, and knitting an argyle scarf for my sister.
  2. I have a small and recent obsession for Star Trek. Ever since I saw the new Star Trek movie, I haven't been able to stop watching all things Star Trek-related. So far, I've seen Star Trek: Nemesis, Star Trek: First Contact, and I watch Star Trek: The Next Generation every weeknight on WGN.
  3. I watch more TV than any human being should. I can't sit in my house without the TV on, whether I'm actually watching it or not. My go-to channels are HGTV or the Food Network. And I have an obscene amount of shows that I follow. Monday is my teen night devoted to the CW and ABC Family, Tuesday is Star Trek: TNG on SyFy, Wednesday is whatever's on Bravo, Thursday is The Vampire Diaries, Friday is TLC night, Saturday is America's Next Top Model on Oxygen, and Sunday has been football as of late, but now I'm watching Emma on PBS. Phew! 
  4. I'm Macedonian-American. My parents were both born in Macedonia - my dad lived there until he was 10, and my mom until she met my dad at 18, but I was born in Chicago. Macedonia is a tiny country north of Greece, west of Bulgaria, and east of Albania. Macedonian is my first language, though I don't speak it that well and could probably read it at a third grade level. If you speak Bulgarian, Serbian, Croatian, or even Russian, I can probably understand you.
  5. I love music in a way that I miss and couldn't possibly describe. Music sustained my extended adolescence the way that reading seems to sustain me now. My current favorites are The Avett Brothers, The Frames, and The Decemberists, among many, many others.
  6. I'm afraid of wide open spaces - something like agoraphobia. I feel rather helpless and actually quite closed in when I'm driving through the cornfields to get back to the city. Scary. 
  7. I love cheese. I always have at least six different cheeses in my fridge, which I call the absolute basics (cream cheese, Laughing Cow, parmesan, cheddar, mozzarella, American) and to that I currently also have crumbled goat cheese and bleu cheese dressing. Normally, I couldn't live without feta or kashkaval, but this town does not offer the types I enjoy. Sigh. 
Enough about me, I would like to nominate the following blogs for the Kreativ Blogger Award. I chose these blogs because they are the ones that I just enjoy reading and that have updated somewhat recently - which made it easy for me to find them. :)
Be sure to check out these wonderful blogs!

Hey Natalie-
Thank you so much!! Fun to read your list of seven. I hardly ever watch tv, which makes me feel like I'm walking in a fog, not knowing who or what is on!!

Congratulations on the Kreativ Blogger award. I think any book that might inspire contemporary readers to discover Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic is a good thing. Or so I said on my blog, after seeing the movie Sherlock Holmes. Maybe this book will do that.

Congratulations on your first award! Enjoyed your seven things list. I love HGTV as well, with my favorites being House Hunters and Designed To Sell. :)

Congrats, Natalie, and thanks very much for the nomination! :) I look forward to posting my own list of noms and little-known facts this weekend. #6 & #7 on your list totally describe me as well!
