Noblesse Oblige Award

Recently, I received this unique and wonderful award. Thank you, Preschool Playbook! I am honored that you nominated Creative and Curious Kids.

This Award is presented to bloggers who display consistency in any one or a combination of these conditions:

1. The Blogger manifests exemplary attitude, respecting the nuances that pervades amongst different cultures and beliefs.
2. The Blog contents inspire; strives to encourage and offers solutions.
3. There is a clear purpose at the Blog; one that fosters a better understanding on Social, Political, Economic, the Arts, Culture and Sciences and Beliefs.
4. The Blog is refreshing and creative.

The Blogger who receives this award will need to perform the following steps:

2. The Award Conditions must be displayed at the Post.

4. The Blogger must present the Noblesse Oblige Award in concurrence with the Award conditions.
5. The Blogger must display the Award at any location at the Blog.

I nominate the following bloggers who I feel demonstrate the characteristics listed above:

Tara at Kidz- I read just a few posts on her blog Too Much Information and was inspired by the love that Tara shares with her family and friends. On her new blog, Kidz,she is an encouragement to others.

Masked Mommy- This is a new blog that I came across that is inspirational in a very creative way. She isn't afraid to share her weaknesses to help others. I can relate to her posts and am inspired by her honesty! The Masked Mommy will motivate you to get organized, too!

My honest answer to #3-
Before created Curious and Creative Kids!, I didn't know much about blogging. (I actually still have a lot to learn!) I came across the opportunity one day while I was researching opportunities for Stay-at-Home moms. I ordered an e-book titled Make Money Blogging. Yes, I was hoping that if I had something valuable to share, I could make money doing something that I thought I'd enjoy. For greed- no. To be home with my children more- yes.

Well, I haven't made much money blogging, but here I am with over 100 posts. I've come across some opportunities, but I wanted to stay true to my blog- if it didn't relate to my overall purpose,I didn't want to write about it. To my surprise, I found a love for writing, a desire to share ideas with others, a network of amazing Moms who support each other, and so much more. Oh yeah, and I've won a few great prizes on blogs, too!

I'm still learning about blogging and who knows if this will turn into an opportunity for me, but if not, it's okay- I'm rich in other ways and I'm still finding ways to be home with my kids! And the best part is, I'm journaling our creative adventures for us to keep forever and being inspired by others on the way.

Have a wonderful day!

Congrats on your award!! Your blog is very uplifting and fun to read. I am also a stay at home mom and plan to start home schooling my two boys next year. Presently they are in Kindergarten and Second Grade. I look forward to teaching them MY ideals and things that I deem important. I currently help out in my Kindergarteners class and am active in my second graders schooling. So I think we will have a BLAST with the home schooling!
