Recently, I have been so touched and honored to receive some blog awards from crafters that I really admire. As many of you know, I go on commenting binges quite often. Meaning I comment on about 7 of your entries at once! This happens because life gets so busy and all of the wonderful blogs I love to read pile up. Well, I shouldn’t let this happen because I was pretty late in realizing I had received these wonderful awards. I was so embarrassed to show my appreciation so late, but I want them all to know how much I really do appreciate it. You guys coming by and reading my blog everyday means so much to me. I have made so many blog friends (the new version of the pen pal, I think!) through crafting, and I just love this wonderful supportive community that has developed around all of our blogs. It is truly magical!
Following are the deeds of the award:
- Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.
- Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you have newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
I also received this award from Kelley at My Front Porch. She is also so incredible sweet and her cards are gorgeous. Her buttons cards alone will knock your socks off. Check her out! 🙂
The last award I received is the Karma Award from Winter at Winter Wonderland. She is mega talented and also super sweet (can you tell that craft bloggers are just generally really sweet?!). You need to check her out too!
The Karma Award: “These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their award.” I need to choose 8 blog to pass this on to.
These awards are so wonderful, so I have decided to pass on these awards to wonderful bloggers! I may not be following the rules exactly, but I think I am going along with the general premise of the awards! 🙂 The following bloggers not only show amazing talent but are also as sweet as can be! Some I have just discovered, others I have followed for a long time, but all of them inspire me everyday!
I hope you go visit these gals and get inspired too!
I also wanted to let you guys know something. I wasn’t sure if to post it or not. First of all, I just couldn’t believe it was real. Secondly, I didn’t want to seem like I was bragging or something icky like that. That is so not me, and I would never want to come across that way, so I hope I am not. You guys have all been so supportive and sweet. I just love this little crafting community, and I feel like I just need to share with you guys! Who else on this planet would understand why I am so excited about this? 🙂 I got accepted into CARDS January 2010 and Paper Crafts March/April 2010. I am still totally shocked. I still can’t believe it. Crafting has been so good to me and brought me so much joy, and I am so excited to be on these pages amongst crafty people I so admire.
Thank you so much for visiting!
