An award for MOI??

Thanks so much to Natasha May for giving me a lovely award! I'm so excited! Especially coming from her, because she's got mad skill, I tell you! I love her work! It's so fresh and beautiful, so please be sure to check it'll be happy you did!

So apparently there are some rules for this award. That's cool. I can dig it ;)

The rules for this award are:
1. Thank the person who gave this to you.
2. Copy the logo and place it in your blog.
3. Link the person who nominated you.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that no one would really know.
5. Nominate seven 'Kreativ Bloggers'
6. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them.

So here goes nothin'...

Seven things people most people don't know about me....

1. My first nickname (which has unfortunately stuck with some of my family members! lol) is Dirty Dobbin Two Shoes (I guess I liked to play in the mud when I was little...but I'm not sure where the Dobbin...or the two shoes bit came from. An imaginative dad, I guess!

2. I went to film school and was fortunate enough to write and direct a short film!

3. I've been on TV in commercials a number of times, and had roles in some short films!

4. I come from a long line of artists. On my mom's side, there's so much amazing talent, and I consider myself so fortunate to have been blessed with this talent gene!

5. I'm a very free-thinker. I tend to disagree with the mainstream on most things. I never take anything for face-value. I insist on doing all sorts of research on things before forming an opinion of my own. However, I like to usually keep my opinions to myself, because I'm not a fan of people who force their beliefs on others!

6. I'm 155 lbs. Yep. You heard me. 155 lbs. And proud of it! They're my curves and I love 'em!

7. I just got some pink streaks in my platinum blonde hair and I LOVE THEM!

It was hard to pick just seven nominations out of all these amazing blogs out there, but here they are! Please check them all out. They're all so great and unique in their own ways!

1. Alexz
2. Emily
3. Maria
4. Nicola
5. Lori
6. Laura Beth
7. Moriah

PS - I hope none of the girls that I've nominated have a no award blog! Sorry if you do :)

As for giveaway Fridays...
I've been neglectful of you all! I promised a blog giveaway every Friday, but I got overwhelmed, so instead, I was thinking that periodically I would do giveaways...that I'd just surprise you all every now and again. I hope that's ok?

I would like to offer this to you all. I'm going to keep it going until April 1st. Just leave me a comment and be sure to leave me a way that I can get a hold of you to let you know you've won! I'll choose the winner by way of random number generator!

Thank you to you all! You're all so inspiring and I adore all your comments and love and talent!!!!!
