Some Blog Awards

Wow!  Where has the time gone?  I can't believe it has been almost a week since I posted last.  I have some catching up to do here.  Over the last few weeks we received several blog awards and I apologize for being so slow to getting around to them.



The first and most recent one is the Sunshine award from Marie Zvezda Monro from Vintage Inspired Accessories.  I feel so honored as this award is to bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspires others in the blog world.

Here are the rules for accepting this award:
- Put the logo on your blog or within your post.
- Pass the award onto 12 bloggers.
- Link the nominees within your post.
- Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
- Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

So here are the 12 bloggers I am passing this award to and something special from their blog that I found inspiring ...


  
        Gingerbell's Gifts                      Inspired Pink          


 
Inside Out                         Dora's Explorations


   


   
Vanessas Clay Adventures                         Modest Maven


 


   
Simple Inspirations                              Knightwork  


2nd Award

This is another award we received some time ago.  It translates to say "This Blog is a Dream" and is a gift for beautiful and creative blogs: those that "enchant, captivate, or sweep with extraordinary beauty."

We received this award from Tree Wings Studio and I can understand why she received this award herself as her blog really is captivating!  (Check out the interesting links she has on the right side.)

Here are the rules for receiving this award:
- Copy the award and place it in your blog.
- Link the person who nominated you.
- Nominate 10 dream blogs.
- Post links to the 10 blogs you nominate.
- Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them.

So here are the 10 Dream Blogs we are passing this award to with a sample of their beautiful work:

  
Wickwire Jewelry               Willow Walker Designs 



  
Laura Cameron               Melody O'Beau Designs 



Polymer Rhythms                     Humble Beads    


   


  
   Quirky Dame                             Cherilynn Fine Art

Whew!  That took some time to pull together but I wanted to share with you some of my favorites and I hope you enjoy them all as much as I do.

Congratulations on your awards! I can well see why you were so honoured!
I am thrilled and honoured to have been selected by you!!!! (especially because I love your work and your blog so much). I'm not sure if I get to pass this on, or quite what I need to do at my site with it, but I'm learning more each day. I will re-read your blog post and I'm sure I'll figure it out.
