I still enjoy sending real cards in the mail. So today’s design is a good old-fashioned Thank You note card… and today I’m also sending thanks for being chosen for an award!
I’ve received the Stylish Blogger Award!!
A great big Thank You to the very expressive Scriptorobscura for honoring me with this award. But just what is the Stylish Blogger Award you ask?
It’s a special appreciation passed on from one blogger to another. The standard for accepting the award is simple: 1) Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award. 2) Share 7 things about yourself to your readers. 3) Pay it forward to other great blogs. 4) Contact these bloggers to tell them about their award.
Here’s a few things about me, with a random photo sampling of things I like:
I grew up in Southern California, and discovered early on that the beach is my happy place. That’s me at about 3 years old on a styrofoam surfboard, pre boogie board era.
I gave up drinking coffee, and now my favorite is caffeine-free Tulsi tea by Organic India.
I’ve done some fun things out enjoying nature with my adventurous husband. Perhaps most spectacular of all: last fall we kayaked with the giant Blue Whales!
I love black olives, but when I was young we had them only for special occasions. Now I keep black olives in the fridge at all times, and eat at will… often and with great joy :~)
The macro views of nature fascinate me, so I tend to take lots of close-up photos. I love the symmetry, the order and chaos, the texture, subtlety and color.
Homegrown Double Delight is my favorite rose. My blog header was created from the petals of this rose pictured on the left. I took this photo the day I decided to create Inspired Type and start blogging.
Lastly, I have this thing about taking photos of my feet. It’s like capturing a moment when I say to myself “I’m so amazed and happy I’m actually here in this beautiful place”.
And now, to pass the award on to some great stylish blogs!
