Kreativ Blogger Award

I've been working on my family history for about five years or so but I've only been blogging about it for a few weeks. When I discovered this morning that I've been nominated for a Kreativ Blogger award I was kind of blown away.

Thank you so much to Kelly (Herstoryan) and Elizabeth  (Littlebytesoflife) for sending this along to me. I absolutely love your blogs and look forward to sharing many more stories with you. And thank you to Thomas at Geneabloggers for his encouragement to start blogging. It's becoming a little addictive. You all  ROCK!!

The rules of the Kreativ Blog award state that I must reveal 7 things about myself that you probably don't know and then pass the reward on to 7 more Kreativ Bloggers. The 7 things about myself will take some thought, but finding 7 Kreativ Bloggers to pass this on to will be no problem at all. There are so many amazing, inspiring bloggers out there with great stories being told.

What you might not know about me;
1. If given the choice of buying something or making it myself, I will always choose to make it myself. Like cooking from scratch or sewing/knitting something.

2. I've spent half my life working in the transportation business and have decided to spend the other half doing something else. I'm hoping to get into a Library Information Science program this January. Fingers crossed.

3. I'm half Irish, half English and Catholic (talk about conflicted) and am married to a Russian/German Mennonite. Makes for an interesting family tree.

4. I have a HUGE fear of heights, but I didn't let it stop me from riding the Niagara SkyWheel (a gigantic ferris wheel) earlier this year. I will fly on a plane to get somewhere but I WON'T LIKE IT.

5. My ''hometown'' is about 2 hours away from where I live now, so going there on day trips to explore cemeteries, libraries and visit old relatives is one of my favorite things to do.

6. I'm reading the classics by way of my iPhone. When I need some down time, I make a cup of tea, grab my knitting, put in my earphones and listen away while I knit. Right now, it's Emma by Jane Austen.

7. I went to the remote, north west part of Ireland last year just so I could stand in the spot that my ancestors came from and breathe the air. It was the most remarkable experience of my life.

Now I pass the Kreativ Blogger Award to these 7 bloggers;

We Tree
Life From The Roots
Tonia's Roots
Apple's Tree

Acadian and French-Canadian Ancestral Home's
Grace and Glory
Canada Genealogy, or, 'Jane's Your Aunt'

  1. Thanks so much for the award! I hope you are enjoying Emma - it's my favorite Austen. : )

  2. Thank you very much for the Kreativ Blogger award. I appreciate your vote of confidence!

  3. Thank you so much!

    I've been to the falls many times but I can't picture the Sky Wheel! Either it is fairly new or my fear of heights caused me to simply block it out!

  4. Hi Sharon,

    Sincere thanks for the Kreativ Blogger Award. I am most appreciative!

  5. Sharon, Thank you so much for the Kreativ Blogger Award. You are the creative one, I never change a thing. But thank you very much, however, I have decided not to accept any awards. For the time being, I want to keep my site simple and clutter free, meaning, no icons or counters or pictures on the side. Saying that, I love your site, and am now a follower of your. Thank you again.

  6. Thanks Ladies for all the kind comments. Tonia, I love reading books that put me back in the era of my ancestors. I think Herstoryan can relate. If you haven't seen the Skywheel in Niagara Falls, google it. It is truly gigantic and I can't believe I went on it. I think I was okay because the seats are enclosed in little pods. The view was spectacular!!

  7. Thank you for the award! Fingers crossed for the LIS program. You'll love it. :)
