Napping Blogger Award

First things first....I've been swamped with awards lately, both the Kreativ and Versatile Blogger Awards. Since I already have both of these, rather than repeat what's already been done (you wouldn't want me to BORE you with more personal details), I decided to create my OWN award.

If you've been visiting here for a while you've probably noticed my NAPPING theme. Naps are a good thing and we often forget that. They can not only revive you, they can help jump start your creativity. They also remind us to take time for ourselves.

The rules for the Napping Blogger Award are easy:
  1. Link back to the one who gave you the award (in this case, it's ME!)
  2. Tell us what you do to take time for YOU! That might be a hobby, a musical break, a favorite movie or show, sitting outside enjoying nature, or even taking a nap!
  3. Nominate five other bloggers - especially folks you think deserve a break from their routine.
I've created this award in several colors so choose your favorite and go take a nap. Be sure to CLICK the image to get the full-sized version and save that.


Okay, now to nominate the five wonderful bloggers who presented me with the Kreativ and Versatile awards:
  1. @KelaMcClelland 
  2. @ashviper 
  3. @KD_Rush 
  4. Kim & Jerry Peterson 
  5. Tara Tyler 

Now to send the award out to five new folks, reminding them to slow down and take a breath once in a while.
  1. @tia_bach_author
  2. @TxYellowRose 
  3. @Ruanna3
  4. @BullishInk
  5. @VeronicaSicoe
Just in case anyone wonders about my model, it's our almost two year old Boxer mix pup...who has her own blog: Sadie Speaks She can take some serious naps!


  1. Wow! My first I Actually Was Awarded It Award!! Whoohoo! Thank you! I'll get right on taking care of all the requirements right after . . . I . . . take . . . a NAP! Thanks, Donna. It's appropriate for me, as it seems like I consciously have to carve out time for myself.

  2. Aw, thanks. Love the model, so cute. :)

    I'll post about this on Saturday. And I hope you have a wonderful week :D

  3. That's very sweet of you, Donna, and your model is gorgeous! :D

    I must admit I never take naps, not even when I was a child. In fact, I slept so little my parents took me to see several doctors when I was a toddler, but they never found anything wrong with me. I was just highly energetic. And no, I don't have ADHS. :)

    What I do to wind down and take a break is watch movies and play computer games, and whenever I have the chance, go hiking or swimming, or ride the bike. I rarely take long breaks because I rarely feel the need to. However, I will consider slowing down a bit every now and then. Thanks for reminding me! :)

    I gladly accept the award, even though I won't post it up on my blog, and I hereby thank you once again for the kind consideration, Donna!

    Keep writing, keep learning and always move forward!


  4. Thank you Donna! That was an honor! I've updated the blog and listed my top 5.

  5. Congrats! very cute award you've created :-) I've got 3 awards stacked up I've yet to accept. at the rate I'm going, it might be Christmas. thinking about it makes me want to nap.

  6. I aPparently don't respond well to gentle reminders to rest so God took me out with a two by four instead of a nudge! Sprained both ankles, in one fell swoop, and spent the next week+ in the recliner ... Watching bad Tv and browsing the web. Good thing my credit cards are in the other room! Watched an I Want That marathon today and saw a variety of must have items!

  7. love it! see, you are a kreativ blogger!
    thanks! i could use a nap!

  8. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...sorry about the snooze but we are working and playing so hard a good long nap sounds wonderful. Thanks for the award and just as soon as time will allow, we...zzzzzzzz! Oooops sorry it happened again, but we will collect this award just as soon as we are able to...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!
