My Thoughts on Blog Awards and Many Thanks :)

Every time I am gifted with a blog award, I am amazed and excited and so thankful! There are so many fabulous blogs out there and the fact that someone picks mine to single out and pass along an award to is such an honor. I sincerely try to never take anything for granted. The fact that my peers choose me is something that I truly appreciate. I don't care if I've received the award before, the fact that someone thinks I am deserving is an honor that truly humbles me. I want each and every one of you who takes the time to pass along an award to me, or to stop by to visit or to leave a comment, or to follow me, I appreciate you so much!

There are six awesome friends I need to thank today for passing along awards to me. They are each amazingly talented crafters and such wonderful friends! I LOVE visiting them and love reading their comments when they visit me! If you haven't stopped by their blogs, you don't know what you are missing - they are fabulous! So a huge THANKS, in the order they were received, to:
  • Shen of My Curious Crafts for the Circut-tastic Award, the Stinkin' Cute Award, A Thing of Beauty Award, The Irresistably Sweet Blogger Award, the Best Friend Blogger Award, and The Stylish Blogger Award
  • Karen of Crafted With Love by Karen for the Stinkin' Cute Award, the Cricut-tastic Award, The Thing of Beauty Award and The Best Friend Blogger Award 
  • Pam of Craftycards4u2 for The Best Friend Blogger Award, The Cricut-tastic Award, The Stinkin Cute Blog Award and the Stylish Blogger Award 
  • Amy of Amy's Crafting Space for the Cricut-tastic Award 
  • Jenni of My Lollipop Garden for the Cricut-tastic Award
  • Amy of Redheaded Crafter for the Stylish Blogger Award

 
The hardest part of getting an award to me is passing it along, because there are so many talented crafters out there. But this time, it wasn't hard at all. I am giving all six to the wonderful friends who have honored me with awards over the last month. I am not doing this just because they gave me awards, but because they are each ones I would have chosen anyway! They are amazing and phenomenal and the greatest friends! I want them to know how much I appreciate them and I would be so happy if you would visit each one to see their incredible talent for yourselves! They are (in alphabetical order): 
  • Amanda of Tropic Krafts 
  • Amy of Amy's Crafting Space 
  • Amy of  Redheaded Crafter
  • Chris of Get Inspired with ChatterScene
  • Crystal of Crystal's Creative Escape 
  • Diana of DL.ART 
  • Dr. Sonia of Cards, Crafts and Kids Projects 
  • Janice of Cricutology 
  • Jenni of My Lollipop Garden
  • Jessica of Jessica's Craft Shaque

  6. Gee Lisa, You are so sweet! You deserve every one of these awards and more:)You are always so supportive and encouraging:)) I know every comment you leave me is truly from a friend who wants me to succeed, that makes me so humbled. I can not keep up with so many crafters. I know I do not post as often as others do, yet every time I do you are there to encourage me! That means the world to me. This community of crafters, is really my connection to the world in more ways than most of you realize. So when you come to my blog, it's like you have come for a visit "to me"!! I get so excited for my friends visit. Lisa you are so sweet every time you come, you visit me more often than my own kids!!

  16. Lisa, you are so fantastic. You deserve each and every award you receive!!! I am truly blessed to have met you along this journey and enjoy stopping by to see your wonderful talent each time I get the chance. I love your creativity and you truly have your own unique style. I am always impressed by the level of detail you put into each and every project you share with us. You always go that extra mile to make a card or project and I am inspired to try using multiple cartridges for special effects like you always do. I am HONORED that you have thought of me and I have to say that I do appreciate all you do to make me smile with your wonderful comments every time you visit!!!

  17. Hey Lisa!

    Thank you so very much for thinking of me! You are right my friend, you were the one who found me first. Ok, I am going to tell you something but you have to promise not to cry. Remember, it's my job to make you laugh! Ok, this is the honest truth. Just before the Momo link up party I was so disappointed with blogging I just about gave it up. I would leave comments on other blogs but would never get any replies, and that included the five followers I had. I was so excited to have five followers but I was so let down because I really wanted blog friends, not just "followers". Does that make sense? Well, being so let down I cried my heart out to my friend Lu, who had talked me into blogging in the first place. Lu and I had worked together and she knew how hard it was going to be for me to not be able to work anymore. She thought blogging would help because I am such a people person. Lu talked me into giving bloging one more try and told me to link up to the Made by Momo link up party, so I did. That is where you come in Lisa. Your invitation to become blog buds was what kept me involved in blogging. So when I say your a great example of what a perfect blogger is...I really do mean that. Had it not been for your one act of kindness by inviting me to follow and by being a true blog bud, I would be making projects for my dogs to look at. Thank you for inspiring me to not only do better projects but also how to be a great blog friend. :)

    Now darn it Lisa, don't be getting that cardstock wet again! It's bad enough I have just ruined mine! LOL! Now I have to run to Michels to get more because I still have a banner and one more card to make before tomorrow! I hope your enjoying the day! I am going to stop at the newest post you put up because I see you've been creating too!

    Again, thank you so much for the awards and the friendship! :)
