A Worthy Award

I was so surprised and delighted to receive this award from
Audrey's Country Crafts.
Thank you, Audrey!

"The Renee Award. This Award was created by Bella and Ces in honour of their friend Renee, an incredible lady who in the face of a frightening life battle is tackling each day with great spirit and courage. Please check out the blogs of these three creative ladies."

"Here is what Bella says of this award:
"this is a brand new award and I have the pleasure and honor of spreading the seed, watching it grow. I hope it finds it's way to those who are like Renee: the acorn, a small package becoming a tall and sturdy oak, giving more acorns, becoming tall and sturdy oaks, giving acorns...""

And now the daunting task of passing this award on to 7 bloggers who, in my opinion, are so deserving. I follow so many blogs that inspire and motivate me both in the Crafting World and in the World of Nature that it is going to be a difficult to only choose 7.

My choices are: (drum roll, please)

Jamie Ribisi-Brayley, who, along with her twin sister and her husband, are creating a venue for artists to find inspiration, creative energy, and a home away from home. Jamie is very involved with the Etsy Maine Team and is so giving of herself. How she finds the time is beyond me.

Laura Trevey, another Etsian who has brightened my life with her beautiful watercolors, her positive attitude, and her friendship.

Amanda Beth , a young spirit who keeps me abreast of fashion in her most creative way and warms my heart.

Heather, one of my many nature bloggers that has inspired my photographic attempts with her beautiful dialogue and glorious photos. Heather patiently waited me out while I experienced a hic-cup in my blogging, along with Poetikat, an insipiring poet/wordsmith who encourages with her variety of original posts.

Stephanie, at Loft Creations, is one of the true motivators that I follow. I have trouble keeping up with her incredible creative energies! It is through her blog that I have found so many other inspiring quilters to follow.

And Kajsa who is like the little energizer bunny and is probably the most original crafter I've ever met!

Please take the time to visit these ladies and introduce yourselves. And my thanks to them for bringing sunshine into my life during this past long, cold winter!

Thank you so much Karen!! You make me feel so special! I wont pass on this award, there are too many people reading my blog that would deserve an award! So I have decided not to give any at all.

Have a sunny weekend! Spring is finally here and I've seen people walking a round in t-shirt only, a real Spring sign!

KaHolly - I appreciate the shout out. I don't know how old YOU are, but I ain't young - at least not as young as you might think. I'll be 48 in June.

Congratulations on your well-deserved award.

Glad to see you're back on track with the blog. I'll see you soon.

KaHolly, thank you so much for this honor - I feel very grateful to be the one nature blogger listed among all these artists! I will spread the award along at an appropriate moment.
