The Kreative Liebster Versatile Blogger Sunshine Ad Infinitum Award

The last three months have been a cyclone.

I’m not complaining-  It’s a happy business.

But, during this time, Critters and Crayons has been bestowed several bloggy honors and I haven’t had a chance to properly thank the bloggers or to fulfill my duties to rightfully receive such honors.

I’m wrapping it all up into a single post.  Now, let’s go to it.

A few months ago, Critters and Crayons was nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award.  And we just got our sixth nomination a couple of days ago.  Oh, keep ‘em coming.  The Critters And Crayons Blog loves gold stars!  :)

Versatile Blogger Award

   Awarded By:

The Valentine Four (twice- yay!):  Brilliant, Honest Prose

 The Outlaw Mom Blog:  Gorgeous, Classy, Crafty, Smart

Dinosaurs And Octopuses:  Creative, Crafty, Hands-On

 Twinisms:  Hilarious, Honest, Brassy

The Happy Logophile:  Sharp, Bibliophile, Uplifiting

According to this award, I’m supposed to link back to the original bloggers and also highlight my fave 15 blogs. Will do.   Let me just say, I LOVE all of the blogs who nominated C&C for this award.

Then, Critters and Crayons received The Sunshine Award from  Danielle of Raising Little Rhodies.  She also writes one of the most inspirational blogs I’ve ever happened across called Happy Being Trevy.  I was meandering about the internet one night and I stumbled on this blog.  It will bring you to tears to read about the family’s joureny with catastropic epilepsy.  Danielle’s site is a resource for other families and is as honest and bright-spirited as it could possibly be.  It touched me deeply.   Thanks, Danielle!

Then, from The Valentine 4:  Living Each Day, Critters and Crayons received The Liebster Blog Award.  Requirements pretty much resembled those of the Versatile Blogger Award.

Thank you, Desi.  Again!

And a couple of days later, Mommy’s Minions passed on the “Tell Me About Yourself” Award! 

For this one, I’m supposed to tell you seven interesting things about myself and to also pay homage to 15 of my fave blogs.  Will do.  And, thank you, Mommy’s Minions!

Finally, yesterday, one of my new fave blogs, The Happy Logophile, nominated Critters and Crayons as one of her Weekly Top 5 and passed on the Kreative Versatile Blogger Squared Award.  It seems Jo of The Happy Logophile had received several awards herself over the last weeks!  (And most deservedly, she did.)


1)  My favorite fruit is an Asian Apple-Pear.

2)  My favorite color is green.

3)  My favorite shape is a nautiloid.

4)  My favorite people are my husband and two kids.

5)  My favorite place is where my family is.

6)  My favorite sport is basketball.

7)  My favorite car is, what else?  A mini-van.


(more than 15, but I stopped counting)  :)

(And if you’ve already been tagged by me or someone else for any of the above awards, no worries-  I’ve got you covered below.  You’ll see what I mean.)

With my fledgling and very amateur competence in HTML code, I built a button for any of you to feel free to use when you receive a good amount of blog love requiring copious posting and promotion of your fave blogs.  :)

You can find the button in the right hand margin of my blog in a Grab It Box.

If you’ve been nominated for any or all of the above awards, simply post this button to your profile and you are done.

You’re welcome.

Merry Christmas!

    • Aw, thanks, Aimee! :) It’s always an honor when fellow bloggers pass kudos. And we would love some of that snow! :) We can make great dirt angels around here!

  1. Oh funny, funny!! Congratulations on *all* your awards – very well deserved. Thank you so much for my award *bows* (Seriously – thank you. It’s very encouraging to be thought of and in such great company.)

    • Cathy- The Seasonal Weekly Planners you do are simply awesome. You pay it forward for others and inspire people to create lovely things. Your blog is just great!

  2. You are FUNNY! First of all … nautiloid!! Love that choice. Second, I match five for seven of your list above. Third, the “I GOT A LOT OF AWARDS” AWARD – that’s truly awesome.

    Lastly, thank you so much for the link, AND for reminding me that I have to do my “acceptance” for some awards. I’m stealing your format, because … well, I really like it! Cheers, Tricia!

    • Mike- I’m honored you like the format. I don’t want anyone to ever be offended I’m grouping the awards together, but I’ll never finish my laundry if I write all the posts individually! haha! Yes, yes- the acceptance is kind of blog etiquette, I think. :)

    • Haha, Nami! Yes, a Depends give-away sounds like a very popular post, indeed. :) A nautiloid is a shape like a nautilus…. :)

  3. Yay! Thanks for the mention Trish. Early Christmas gift!
    I will be silent for the next two weeks though, we will be vacationing at dear husband’s hometown. I’ll see if I can share some of my experience and see how fast the speed of the internet there. I wish you a very Merry Christmas! Enjoy the holidays with your family!

    • Oh, Dan- that’s not true. The very first comment you left on my blog about made me lose it (the man washing dishes/peeing in the sink comment)….hahahaha! It still cracks me up. :)

  4. You’re going to need to build an award closet to display all of those! Congrats :-)

    At first, I was like, awesome, she listed me as one of the blogs.
    Then, I was like, oh no, wait, so I’m going to write a post for all of those awards?
    Then, I was like, duh, that’s why she created the all-encompassing blog button.

    Thanks! For the mention, awards and button!! You’re awesome and so’s your blog … but I think you already know that I think that :-) So, I’m wondering, I’ve VBA’d you, you’ve VBA’d me, now is it my turn to give it back??? ha ha

    • Thanks, Chrissy- I can’t believe I left this comment hanging all this time! No, don’t give it back.. You’re done. haha!
