I'll allow "pinning" as long as you pull up the post & pin from it for a direct link for others. :-)

I've won an award!!!

I'm still in a bit of shock over this! I mean, I've just begun my blog...it's still in the "infant" stage & barely learning to crawl. I have so much more I'd like to do to my little cottage here on the web. Painting, wallpaper to hang, curtains. I want it to feel "homey" ~~ like you could walk in the front door, make yourself a cup of tea or coffee and sit at the kitchen table with me for hours.

Andrea H ~ you're a sweetheart for doing this! I'm touched that you like my blog...I was humbled even more by your kind words and to find I'm in such wonderful company! Oh, wow!!!! In case some of you don't know, Andrea has a terrific blog of her own that recently received the same acknowledgement. You can find her at http://www.thepaperpurse.blogspot.com/. She's a fantastic cardmaker & crafter in her own right. I'm also honored to call her a HugSistah!

The rules for this award are:
1. The winner can put the logo on their blog.
2. Link the person you received your award from.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Put links of those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the blogs you've nominated.
I have to choose 7...hmmm, this is a toughie. I have some that I haunt frequently & have come over time to adore the owners, their personalities, sense of humor, and amazing talents. {sigh} Buck up Girl & get on with it! 'K! Here goes:
1. Summertime Designs (http://www.summertimedesigns.blogspot.com/) - This lady has given the digiscrapping world some absolutely gorgeous kits, with delicious names like "Vintage Oreo", while facing struggles in her personal life some of us can't even begin to fathom. Summer, I admire your courage & strength and wish you nothing but the best always.
2. Wenchd Grafix (www.wenchdgrafix.com/yakkin) - I found her through a Yahoo! Group & fell in love with not only her generosity but her sense of humor. She's one of the few I know that has witnessed firsthand & can fully appreciate a full-blown raging case of "rectal crani-itis!" (ROFL!) For those of you that know me, I give her full credit for the kooky lil kitties that I love to post and my "Doin a lil dork dance" blinkies!
3. Irene Alexeeva (http://www.irenealexeeva.blogspot.com/) - Another treasure in my Yahoo!Group. I love using her freebie kits to make some of my siggy tags for the message boards I frequent. Her work is so creative & whimsical without being cartoon-y. It's no wonder that the ScrapOrchard snapped her up for their design team!! I know I have started & fed some serious addictions by handing out her blog addy (30 times in ONE NIGHT). I'll have to show off the tags I've made with her "Get Kitty" & "Dog" kits - they're absolutely adorable!
4. Happybird's Crafting Haven (http://www.happybirdscraftinghaven.com/) - Talk about a prolific woman...she's a dynamo! You can spend DAYS getting through all of her TUTs, information that can be considered "must have," and crafting tips/projects. I'm a classic movie buff, so her movie clips throughout the posts are extremely entertaining. This woman will leave you shaking your head in awe!
5. Deb (http://www.debsdoodlesnthings.blogspot.com/) - A very talented HugSistah, who in spite of making a chaotic & long move, still finds time to blog so we know how she's doing or get in a quick craft to maintain her sanity. Sis, I moved 1400 miles 11 yrs ago (with 2 small toddlers) & I feel your pain! Hang in there!!
6. Raspberry Road Designs (http://www.raspberryroaddesigns.blogspot.com/) - Another of my "go-tos" for out-of-this-world siggy tag supplies. Susan uses her blogspot to showcase some of her outstanding merchandise and give away some of the yummiest digital freebies the Free World has ever seen. Susan, your talents are phenomenal & we're blessed to have you around.
7. Katrina's Kreations (http://www.katrinaskreations.blogspot.com/) - Another HugSistah that's trying to get her little home-based business off the ground. I truly believe it will fly soon - she can do some wonderful things with that vinyl cutting machine of hers!
Well, there you have it! I hope you enjoy visiting these lovely ladies as much as I do! Have a great rest of your day!!
