Marvelous Monday!

Thanks to you Tammy! I'm honored that you nominated me for the Kreativ Blogger award!

Tammy has a great blog over at Art with a (re)purpose where she has posted some wonderful recycle / re-purpose craft tutorials.  If you're not already following Tammy, you will want to add her to your reading list!  She's also a member of the Etsy Trashion Team

So here's my list of 7 things that you probably don't know about me... (or were afraid to ask!!)
  1. You know I love wildlife, but did you know there's one living creature I kill on sight?  Yep, that's right!  I'm a slug hunter.  I love to go out into the gardens at dusk and keep count of how many slugs I can off in one night. (my top one night count last year was in the 70s!)
  2. I'm right handed, but consider myself right brained too.  I tend to creativity and learn best visually and hands on.
  3. I always try to wear a belt if I'm on a boat (with the exception of the ferry).  Why?  Paranoia I guess... it's in case I go overboard then there's something strong that can be hooked if I need rescuing.
  4. I dyed my hair until I was 35 or 36 years old.  Everything from red to black to blue but then I decided to let my natural color including my well earned grays grow in.  
  5. I was born with a patch of white hair in my otherwise brown locks.  Some call it a shaman's streak, I just called it mine.  Although you can't notice it much now that I'm transitioning from brown to gray (see above)
  6. I once raised Malaysian Walking Stick bugs.  They were my son's "pets" and they just kept multiplying!
  7. I've recycled over 7000 plastic bags into reusable bags!  OK you may know that one already but just in case you missed my trumpeting last week!
So now I'm going to nominate 7 other creative bloggers for the Kreative Blogger award. These bloggers each show their creativity and they share with us how to be more creative including DIY, craft tutorials, new ideas, recipes and other forms of creation. Be sure to check them out and follow their blog posts, I do!

  1. Never having visited your blog before, this was a great post to happen upon. I loved reading your facts. WOW, 7,000 bags?!? Way to go! And the belt on a boat thing? Genius. I'm going to have to start doing that. :)

  2. Hey there Christi, I found your blog on the blogcatalog Greenie group. I'm so happy to have come across it, it's fantastic! I stated reading, loved it, and had to follow your feed. I then noticed your a SITS girl too, very cool. It's so nice to find other like-minded green folks such as yourself. It definitely gives me inspiration and hope. I'm totally grabbing your button and adding it to my own very new, very green-themed blog. Keep up the good work, and thanks so much for sharing. Peace. :)

  3. Thank you very much, Christi, I feel really honored!
    Hope you have lot's of fun experimenting!
    Smiles, Anke ;)

  4. Cheryl - I'm glad your first visit to my blog was one that had some significance :0) That belt/boat thing is something someone told me when I was a kid and I just have kept that idea with me ever since.

    Michelle - I'm glad you found me too! Thanks for the button love. It's always nice to meet another greenie! I'm off to check out your green blog right now!

    Anke - you're very welcome! I'm enjoying seeing your creative posts. You are very deserving of the Kreative Blogger award!
