Green Blend Award!!

I am so excited and honored to have received the Green Blend Award from my sweet friend Jessica of Jessica's Craft Shaque!!

This is from Beckie of Just B Creative Crazy, who created the award:

"There are several blog awards that bounce around in blog land. To each award is a purpose and pride. I wanted to create an award for those who are co-bloggers and friends. I wanted to create an award that I could give to those who have helped me develop as a blogger, a crafter, and friend.
When I first began in the vast world of blogging, I had zero knowledge of what to do. What the heck is a gadget…and isn’t adding it supposed to help, not drive me nuts!?!

There were a few people along the way that took me under their wing and helped me even after 5 emails of “I have no idea what you are talking about!!” haha

So to honor those whom I have befriended, I have created an award. My stupendous friend, Jessica, of Jessica’s Craft Shaque coined the term “Blend”. She says this is a friend and a co-blogger. I just love that word.

I contacted Mrs Jessica and politely asked her to be co-creator of the award and for copyrights to use the term “Blend”. She graciously accepted to both requests.

The “Green” portion represents how we should be kind to one another and help one another…such as being “Green” and helping our environment. Reissue the kindness that someone once gave to you as an infant blogger. Recycle the ideas you have learned or invented to pass along to up and coming crafters. Reduce the frustrations of wanting to a blogger with magnitude."

Here are the terms under which this “Green Blend Award” are to be given:

1. This award is for any co-blogging friend who has helped you develop your blog in any and all ways.

2. This award is for any co-blogging friend who has cheered you along in your blog building, craft advancing career.

3. This award is for any co-blogging friend who always stops by and is kind to you. You can count on them to always be one of the great comments at the end of your post.

4. This award is to be given to 3 to 5 Blends whom you feel meet the listed requirements.

5. Create a post with the terms of use and publish your Blends of choice.

6. Blend of choice may copy the award from your blog and proudly post it on theirs.

7. Blend of choice may continue the kindness by issuing this award to keep the circle forever growing.

In my almost one year of blogging, I have met so many amazing blog friend...blends :) This was hard for me to narrow it down...there are so many people who have been instrumental in my journey and continue to inspire me daily. But in keeping with the rules, (okay, I stretched it just a teeny bit because I wanted to give it back to my dear blend, Jessica of Jessica's Craft Shaque! Thanks again, Jessica!!) the blends I have selected, are (in alphabetical order):

Amy of Love To Crop
Amy of Amy's Crafting Space
Karen of Kaleidoscopic Sparkles
Pam of Craftycards4u2
Shelly of My Paper Love
Sherrie of Sherrie Scraps With Passion
Susan of Cricut and Grasshopper

Each of these amazing bloggers have been with me through this journey, they visit me often, if not daily, and leave such sweet, encouraging comments!! I am so very thankful for them and for all of my blog friends...blends!!

Congrats on your well deserved award Lisa- and THANK YOU SO MUCH for passing it on to me- I REALLY appreciate it- you have helped me with my technological issues on so many occasions, always inspire and encourage me, and are just an awesome blog friend!! I will be posting with pride! :)Amy

Pam said...

Oh Lisa, you are awesome!! You so deserve this award my sweet and treasured friend. You inspire me on a daily basis, to be a crafter but more so to be a good friend. I am so honored for you to pick me as one of your blends.

There have been many times over this last year that I was going to let my blog go, and then I would get comments from you, and a few others, that would pick me up, and give me the will to continue.

I look at your list and some of the same names come to me as you. Both Amy's, Karen, Susan, these ladies are my blends too!! All of us kinda started together, me being the slowest and least blog poster, but you all have always been there for me even though I do not post like the rest of you. I adore you all!

Thank you Lisa, I will post this award with pride!

Big hugs, Pam

Lisa, you are just so awesome, congrats on this award! I have always said you are the definition of what a great blogger is and I feel so blessed to have you as a friend. We started our blogs right around the same time and everytime I see how far you've come I smile with pride. The endless creativity you have is only surpassed by your wonderful personality! I'm so honored to have you as a friend Lisa and I am so very honored that you are passing it on to me. There really are no words to explain just how huge of an inspiration you have been to me my dear friend! Thank you! :)

Now let's remember our motto, there is no crying in papercrafting! (I need to tell myself that too)...sniff. lol!
