More Awards!

Anna at Diary of an Eccentric gave me the Lemonade Award, which is for blogs with great attitude and/or gratitude.

I am supposed to pass this one to 10 bloggers, but you know that there are many more out there who are deserving. But here's my list of 10:

1. Susan of Gottawrite Girl
2. Janel of Janel's Jumble
3. April of Cafe of Dreams
4. Toni from A Circle of Books
5. Naida of The Bookworm
6. Nikki of Fyrefly's Book Blog
7. Literate Housewife
8. Literary Feline
9. Susan Gottfried of West of Mars
10. Sandra of Fresh Ink Books

I'm breaking the rules again!

11. 5-squared

Anna at Diary of an Eccentric also bestowed upon me the Kreativ Blogger Award. Which means I have to list 6 values that are important to me and 6 things I do not support. I also have to pass it along to 6 creative bloggers.

6 Values/Characteristics that are important to me:

1. Honesty above all else
2. Generosity of heart, mind, pocketbook, self, whatever...
3. Respect
4. Compassion
5. Creativity
6. Humor (sarcastic or otherwise)

6 Values/Characteristics I do not support:

1. Dishonesty
2. Selfishness
3. Disrespect (are you seeing a pattern yet)
4. Laziness
5. Arrogance
6. Ignorance

6 Bloggers:

1. Iliana of Bookgirl's Nightstand
2. Monica of Monniblog
3. Sheri of A Novel Menagerie
4. Terri of Ways I See the World and Reading, Writing and Retirement
5. Toni of A Circle of Books (did you know she knits?)
6. Naida of The Bookworm (she crochets and I can't wait to see what she comes up with out of that little animal crochet book I sent her)

Wow Serena, that is so nice of you. That has to be the best award button yet-appeals to the little girl in me I guess. I will display it with pride. Thank you.

Congratulations! You picked some great blogs to pass the awards on to.

Amanda said...

Aw, you're sweet!

Dar said...

Congrats Serena! It's hard to pick people for awards when you think most of them deserve it, isn't it and yet it's nice to recognize those you really love. It's a vicious circle. lol. Anyhooooo, you definitely deserve all of them. Hope you're feeling better!

Serena said...

Sandra: I'm glad you want to display it with pride. I had to get all of these out there. There are a bunch of these around.

Bermudaonion: I hope that these blogs haven't gotten them all already. I like to pass them on to blogs that don't necessarily get them all the time but are equally deserving.

Amanda: I'm glad you liked it.

Dar: I have such a hard time doling these awards out.

Love the ideas/reasons behind both these awards. You deserve them both. I especially appreciated the 6 "do and do not support" characteristics of the Kreativ award.

Your answers are a large part of why I keep visiting this blog.

Serena said...

Naida: OOO goody. I cannot wait to see the little guys/gals.

Marvin: Thanks for the compliments.

I'm looking this list over today as I am working on the draft of my acknowledgment, and ... I wish I had time to visit all these bloggers and get to know them! I am envious, Serena!

Serena said...

Anna: Thanks for bestowing some of these awards on me!

Susan: It's been a slow discovery process for me, but keeping up with everyone is what is killer.

Not sure if I am commenting twice...something weird happened with my first comment.

Anyway, I was just stopping by to get caught up on your blog. Wow! You are really good at responding to and following awards. I particularly enjoyed the one below this post where you tell why you like the different book blogs.
