I've been given an award! Thank you, thank you, Maria from Thrifty Ways & Ideas.

In getting the Kreativ Blogger Award, you must share 6 things for which you are thankful, then pass the award on to 6 other Kreativ Bloggers. So, here are my 6 thanks:

1) My church. I truly believe the leaders in our church love God and want to see others know and love Him too.
2) My family. They are who I always want to be around.
3) My home. My bed. My warm shelter. At night, when we are winding down for the evening, I have a content feeling rush over me. I love being home. I am with my family and we are comfortable.
4) Hope. Expectancy. Forward-thinking. Sometimes this is a curse, because I have trouble being thankful for the now. But I am truly thankful for what God is going to do and what I believe He is already doing.
5) Grace. Without it, I would not have number 4.
6) Prayer. It's so simple, but it is awesome that we have a God who has made a relationship with Him so simple.

Now for the awards:

To Heather aka Mrs. Jonesfor her sidebar list of favorite tutorials and for this memorable mommyhood moment post..

To Joy at Joys of Home because she has as many projects going as I do in my head. She just manages to get them done, and post about them.

To M.L. at The House of Whimsy for her contributions to the "I Can Make That!" Party.

To Amanda at Letters to Olivia for sharing her honest experiences as a birth mom. Although, this isn't a crafting blog by any means-Amanda is using bloggyland creatively-to address some of the misconceptions about adoption and (most importantly) telling us all how we can understand and reach out better to birth parents, those who have adopted, and those who have been adopted.

To Holly at Blogging with Holly because she's had me hooked since her fabric pumpkins. And her photos are so inspiring...I want to take an ottoman out into the middle of the woods and take my kids pictures, too!

To Rachel B. at Made With Love & Glue. She also take amazing kids' photos. I'm stealing a few of her ideas for my kids, too. And she too made some great pumpkins this fall. Can't wait to see what she comes up with for Christmas.

Thanks again, Maria!!! You've made my day!
