I feel like I’ve been blogging a lot about some of the fun things that we have going on around here in the past few weeks. But it’s good to have fun news, right?
I know I have already discussed Chris receiving the Templeton Award and how excited we are about it. We still feel overwhelmed by it all, since we are from a small school and Chris is currently teaching at a small school. But since the 2010 award winners were recently “officially” announced on the John Templeton Foundation website, there have been several articles published about Chris that I just had to take note of via my
online scrapbook blog. The listing on the award website is here. An article about Chris was featured in both of the local newspapers such as the Lincoln Daily News here, and the Lincoln Courier here. Brill, the publisher of the book that won the award, posted a notice in their Awards Overview here, as did the publishers of his upcoming book, T & T Clark, on their blog here. Edinburgh’s Divinity School, New College, posted an announcement of Chris’ award here and here. And perhaps most importantly, there is the announcement that I made on our blog when we first found out, here. We now have less than 2 months until our big trip, which we try not to talk about every single day if we can help it. 🙂
For me, it is no secret that I have recently joined a brand new collaborative blog, Lemon Tree Creations. We have had a fun week reading the sweet comments left by people who stopped by to check out our work, and have been feeling really pleased with the way that things are going. But yesterday morning, we were shocked to discover that Today’s Creative Blog, a really big creative blog, had done a whole feature on our site. Check it out here. I am so excited to get such great publicity from such a well respected blog, and Kim, the author, was incredibly kind to us.
