What an honor!

I was surprised and honored to get this lovely blog award from Val of Flippinpests Crafty Roll today! I'm so lucky to have so many wonderful blog buddies all over the world (Val is in Scottland) and even luckier that they think enough of me to send me such happy sweet thoughts. Thank you, Val!

As a recipient of this award, I am supposed to . . .
1. Place the logo on my blog.
2. Link to the person who sent the award to me.
3. Nominates 10 blogs.
4. Post links to the ten blogs I nominate.
5. Leaves a message on the blog of each nominees.

So, without further ado, here are the folks I think are deserving of an award. It is very hard, I mean very, very, very hard to limit myself to just 10 blogs. You all deserve a gold star, a blue ribbon, and a trophy as far as I'm concerned. But here are some folks who I've just recently met or I haven't told enough or haven't told lately how much I appreciate their blogs and support and encouragement and creative thinking . . . (in no particular order) (Oh! Almost forgot . . . I know some, maybe many of you don't do awards and I understand and respect that so if you don't post it or send it on, no worries. I'm awarding you anyway! If you have time to pass it on, good for you!)

Cathy Parmelee's Art + Life
What's Up Roc

(yes, you first two ladies, 2, count 'em, 2 awards from me in a week or so - you've meant a lot to me lately and you know why)
Thrifty Collage Artist
Ginny's Small Studio
Pringle Hill Studio
Hayley Judith Egan
Friends in Art
Linda Crispell
All Kinds of Stuff

Okay, I sent 11. I'm a rule breaker, well, bender. I could have sent 50 or so and meant it with all of my heart. Some of you I just don't know well enough and fear you'll think I'm weird and creepy and stalkerish (which I am, but in a good way). I'll get you all sooner or later, like it or not.

Today's news . . . besides getting before mentioned most awesome award, I spent much of the day mailing out Etsy orders, which kept coming today! Today's orders were mostly small non-art stuff but I still had some from yesterday to finish up. When I wasn't doing that, I was finally cleaning my house and starting laundry and picking up dog pooh and changing sheets and went to the grocery store - you know, all of the exciting things in life. I pouted all day cuz I didn't get to make one artsy thing. Ah, sigh, . . . maybe tomorrow.

Dad update . . . we find out next Wednesday when the next surgery and my next trip will be.

Thank you so much, Marsha, I really feel honoured! I never post about awards on my blog nor forward them, but that doesn´t mean that they don´t make me happy ;-)

YEAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!! Picture me, virtual blog award in hand, clutching the second floor patio railing as I stand on the outside of it and wave my virtual award in every one's face, King Kong style. That's how pleased I am. I am like a 2 year old cave man er...cave woman, grunting "MINE MINE MINE MINE!" I am not good at accepting gracefully but I am awesome at slobbering my thanks and appreciation all over my wicked awesome virtual award.
By the by YOU ROCK!!!!!! We got the super cool collage in the mail today and were thrilled with the extra one too. You are way too nice, I hope you have a secret dark side s you can let off some steam. Perhaps we can get super hero costumes and go whomp garbage bin thieves by night so we can be nice and considerate and generous bloggers by day???
Also I should say an envelope from you rates opening right AT the mail box, right NEXT to our garbage bins which happily were right where they should be. Not all mail gets opened at the mail box, only special mail. Cox cable only wishes I would put the teeniest tear in it's envelope while still near the box...HA!
