Flowers in the Sun

Having been behind all month, it is time to start the month on a great and grateful note. Tonight, we are going to look at some flowers growing in my front yard. Want to take the dime tour?

Sue Dreamwalker was blessed with quite a few awards in March. If you have not been to Dreamwalker’s Sanctuary, you are truly missing out. She has touching and beautiful poetry, amazing art and uplifting messages. It really is a sanctuary against all the clamor of ranting and raving elsewhere in the blogosphere.

I owe her quite a large measure of gratitude. She passed along to M3 two of her awards, The Kreativ Blogger and The Sunshine Award.

Both awards come with the condition I reveal some secrets to you. Since the Sunshine Award has a standard set of questions, I can refer you to my answers for that award in Gold Stars. If you receive this award, you can get all the particulars for what you have to do there.

Ten Kreativ Facts

One: I am a bit of a shutterbug. I have more than 12,000 photographs in my house. This number is greatly diminished by a house fire which consumed almost as many. This does not include the pictures I have which are digitally stored. That number is a secret for another time.

War Paint

Two: We take Halloween pretty seriously. It is fun to get dressed up and head out. And I am not above dressing the whole clan in a theme…or a tribe.


Queen-sized afghan

Three: I have crocheted nearly 1,000 pounds of yarn. I like to crochet and have made afghans which have been auctioned for charity and sold for a tidy profit.

Jolly Roger

Skull & Crossbones



Four: Beads are not just for jewelry.

Five: I am learning origami to entertain and confound the children.

Six: I baked a cake Friday, by accident.

Seven: I love to paint murals.

Eight: I created my first digital art in 1985, in basic, with more than 18,000 lines of code. It was a picture of Thanatos.

Nine: My favorite medium is charcoal. Yes, that is very telling.

Ten: When I cannot dream of what to write, I create something.


The following eight blogs are very creative. Some inspire others to create as well. Stop by and see what is in the Kreativ closets worth rummaging. Bloggers, you may have your choice of one, the other or both. The main point is for the M3 Readers to have a ball crawling over your creative, beautiful, hysterical and touching pieces. I know that is a lot to ask of one post, but you are, after all, creative!

      ROFL! I need to accidentally eat some cookies, but all I seem to have in the kitchen at the moment is pecan pie. I suppose I will have to suffer through it!!

  2. Congratulations! You’re going to run out of things to tell us if you keep getting awards 🙂

      Hahaha! I said that about ten awards ago!! That’s okay, though. I saw you got a huge dose of awards yourself. Looking forward to your secret revealing!
