The Kreativ Blogger Award

Look at what we got! An award!!


Our first one! I was so excited when I found out and told Howard right away. He wasn't jumping up and down like me - I don't know how he manages to contain his excitement.

Thank you to January Asia and Steven Hui from The Caffeinated Globe! Here is the post where they passed on the award to us. Thank you!! It feels nice to win a creative award.

The Kreativ Blogger Award comes with these responsibilities:
  1. You must thank the person who has given you the award.
  2. Copy the award logo and place it on your blog.
  3. Link the person who has nominated you for the award.
  4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
  5. Nominate 7 other Kreativ Bloggers.
  6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
  7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs to let them know they have been nominated.
I did numbers 1-3 already, so here are 7 things that you might (no promises) find interesting about me:
  1. When I get called a "foodie" I scrunch up my nose. Don't get me wrong, I love food, but I don't think that I know enough about it to be called a foodie. I'm a baker!
  2. I like watching shows/films that have some form of publishing in them. Examples: Ugly Betty, Being Erica, Lipstick Jungle, Post Grad and The Proposal. It amuses me because publishing looks really glamorous on screen.
  3. I don't get the Food Network at home. It is really sad.
  4. I collect postcards and scope out cupcake bakeries when I travel.
  5. I don't have fancy photo shoot equipments. I use a white bristol board and a point-and-shoot camera.
  6. I'm afraid of traveling on airplanes.
  7. Even though I adore colour, most of my clothes are black or shades of grey.
In turn, I will nominate the following 7 bloggers (alphabetical order by blog name):
  1. Bonita at Bon Eats
    A fellow publishing friend and I was lucky enough to try her cupcakes. =)
  2. Lyndsay at Coco Cake
    Take a look at her fondant work and you'll know why! So cute!
  3. Suzanne at Gleeks United
    I am a gleek and proud of it. Plus, she's a major cupcake fan!
  4. Karen at Mad Baker
    Yummy, yummy photos! She's mad about cake, pastries, and all things baked.
  5. Sarah at Milk and Honey Cafe
    More yummy photos and recipes! I like the simple style she does.
  6. Heather at The Scootabaker
    She delivers baked goods on her scooter!!! Enough said!
  7. Michelle at Une-deux senses
    I love her sense of fashion and food!
Congratulations to everyone, it was pretty tough narrowing my choices down to 7!

  4. Eee! Thank you to the nominees that replied! I didn't think I would hear back so soon, but it is amazing to! You 7 are my hidden blogger gems!

    Michelle - I can't believe this was your first award too! Just wanted to say that I would eat the food you make and would wear many of the clothes you feature. =)

    lyndsay - Thank you! You make the cutest fondant decorations!

    Avanika - I noticed that you got many awards!! Congrats!

  5. Sylvia!!!
    I'm so honored that YOU think I'm creative! You're the creative one! I'm just happy you're thinking of me! I Love You! Thank you!
    And now I would like to thank the Academy for their continued support...my mother for always encouraging me to bake MORE... and bloggers everywhere for always inspiring me to try new flavors and recipes and ...*overhead music cues...

    Thank you Sylvia! If I could put this award on my mantel, I would, but I don't have a mantel and this award is virtual, so on my desktop it will stay!

  6. Thank you so much for the nomination Sylvia! I'm so honoured! I never considered my blog creative...just a girl simply blogging about her love of food, so this feels really special! =)

  7. The Scootabaker - Of course you're creative! Hahahaha, that cutoff music cue goes on too early doesn't it? Give bloggers more time to shine!

    Bonita - No problem! I think that knowing how to cook is very creative (I have yet to try)! =D

  8. Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow /Hey thanks man!! you are so good. I think this the perfect work.
