Thank you!

I've received 2 blog awards lately and I just wanted to say thank you to both ladies for choosing my blog. This first one, The Lemonade Award, I received about 2 weeks ago, but it's taken me that long to post about it. I loved reading Cen's blog as she actually held an entire awards ceremony! I was quite impressed, red carpet and all. It's also an overall fabulous blog and I would recommend checking it out.

As for me, I think I'll be a bit more low-keyed about the awards mainly because, as I've already confessed, I'm such a poor organiser of events. I can't even do children's birthday parties without becoming overwhelmed so how could you possibly expect me to hold an awards ceremony. Honestly!

The "rules" of this award are that I must:-
1. Put the logo on your blog or post. (Right click on the logo and save to your own computer.)
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs which show great attitude and/or gratitude
3. Link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to this post with the person from whom you received your award.

So I am now going to reveal my chosen winners. I may not make it to 10 as I'm aiming to choose people I haven't chosen in the past.

1. Petit Plat - check out her minatures. Amazing!
2. Glitter and Grunge - for showcasing such wonderfully talented artists.
3. Chest of Fairytales by Vusova - fabulous artist
4. Good and Crazy People - because it's real
5. Francoise Studio by Francoise Lama-Solet - she makes such exquisite children's clothing
6. Cen's Loft - she awarded me this one and made me discover her blog with such great finds!
7. Keeper of the Cheerios - a lovely blog on life and children especially

The second I found in my inbox this morning, thanks to LeAnne of Mile High Stamp and Scrap. I "met" LeAnne through the wonderful world of stamping and I think she's probably one of the biggest fans of my Chichiboulie Fairy stamps. I always love hearing from her, so this award brought a real smile to my face.

For this one, I'm going to send it out to others who help me along my way and bring smiles to my face as well.

1 & 2 & 3. Canvasses of Poetry and Prose and Mile High Stamp and Scrap and My Idea of Recess- I love hearing from all of you. It helps to keep me motivated among other things!
4 & 5. Tiddly Inks and Alice in Paris - both wonderful ladies and wonderful artists. And also wonderful in the support category.
6. Chalkhill Studio - My sounding board and a beautiful person who creates beautiful things.
7. StampingBella - such a fun person, full of enthusiasm and I think she may actually get me!

I'm going to stop there although there are others I could name. Thank you to all of you!
