The very talented Barbara Shores, of Village Folk Art, was so kind to bestow me with a sweet blog award:Be sure to see her lovely artwork at her brand new gallery: Village Folk Art Gallery. Isn't her art just beautiful?!
Now I have the opportunity to pass this award on to other Kreativ bloggers that you may not know:
1.turkey feathers - this is one of the first blogs that I ever viewed. It inspired me to start my own blog one day... It's simply lovely. She has a new book coming out soon - Blanket Statement - and I just can't wait!
3. The Twist Family - Beth is a multi-talented artist that shares the joys of her young family. Her posts always remind me of cherished memories of my own sons from when they were little. I am so blessed to own her first papercutting.
Take some time to visit these inspiring blogs. I have also been tagged for the very first time by Suzanne, Painter of the Past, of Pear Tree Primitives.
When I read her post for this tag I certainly giggled. When I read Cathy's responses at Tadpoles and Teacups I truly lol'ed! I'm not feeling very funny tonight, but let's see how this goes...

"If they obey and serve him, they will spend the rest of their days in prosperity and their years in contentment. -Job 36:11
In this time of economic chaos, I prefer these definitions of prosperous:—Synonyms 1. thriving. 2. wealthy 3. fortunate
