This award was given to me by Missy at Missy's Book Nook. Thank you so much for thinking of means a lot to me!

The rules state that in order to accept this award, I must list seven of my very favorite things, and only then may I pass the award on to seven other bloggers. So, here goes. *deep breath*

My Seven Favorite Things are:
1. Hanging around with my daughter Meg
2. Hanging around with Nickel Silverwing, my African Grey parrot
3. Reading
4. Talking on the phone with my sisters
5. Blogging & posting on Twitter, LibraryThing
6. Dark chocolate
7. Photography and photographs, particularly black & white

Notice I did not list coffee, notwithstanding the fact that I cannot live without it. It's like air and water, so it's not really a "favorite" thing as much as a necessity for life itself! ;D

Okay, now to pass on this award to those of you whose blogs I find, for a myriad of reasons, to be highly creative and pretty much addictive. It hasn't been easy to choose, because there are so many excellent blogs out there. I did not include any of the blogs to which I already gave an award (see sidebar), though they are also creative and cool. Okay, my choices of blogs to get the Kreativ Blogger Award. Drumroll please!

Smart Bitches, Trashy Books
Good Bird Blog
Life in Southern California
Murder, Mystery & Mayhem
Maw Books Blog
Blood of the Muse
Outpost Mavarin

Thanks for blogging, and keep up the good work! :)

Hi, Kim ~ Thanks! Congrats to you too. :)

I'd be more than pleased to have you link to any of my mystery reviews you care to. I love the genre in most of its forms, so it's always a pleasure to either find a new author/book or turn another mystery lover onto one.

Tina! Wow, thanks! I'm gloating, I'm gloating! I'm also feeling a bit overwhelmed. Last month I almost stopped blogging because I felt no one was reading it. Now ~ well, suffice it to say I'm glad I kept up with it. :)
