Another Award?!? You're jesting!


You're kidding, Miss Hope!! Miss Hope has passed along this One Lovely Blog Award to me, lil'ole'me! She received it over the holidays and part of the deal is that you pass it along to seven other bloggers; she chose me to be one of the recipients! Miss Hope certainly did deserve this award, that's for sure. She shares with us her love and pride of family and country, her faith, her steadfastness in the face of some trials and tribulations. She's going to help out a lot of people whose children have ADHD as she shares her story about her wonderful son...

I'm just going to scan my "list of blogs I read each day" and start passing the love along...

Erika Martin's Stampin' Mama Designs is one of my favorite scrapping blogs. Why? Because she is one talented lady, that's why! And she shares so much of herself in her blog and on her pages and I truly admire her and her work! I've taken one class with her and am waiting patiently for her Journaling 101 class to start on 01/26/09. She's got a way of making you really look inside yourself, but without a shred of pain or self-doubt! Thanks, Erika!

Kim at Parachuting without a Net deserves this award, too, for a number of reasons. She has shared with us her heartbreak over losing her two daughters a year ago in an horrific car crash, but rather than that devastation, what comes across in her blog is her love for her daughters, her caring love for the daughter still here, grieving with her, and her love for her new fiance... We're all looking forward to reading all about her wedding plans, etc.

Jeanette at A Passion for Scrapbooking, Decorating & Shopping also gets my vote. Talk about a lovely blog!!! She shares her decorating skills, her internet finds, her planning and implementation of home projects - I've gotten some lovely ideas from her blog... now if only I could get those ideas to translate into reality in my house...

And Suzanne at Let's Talk Organizing - she SOOO deserves this award, too! Her lovely blog has made me a more organized, in control worker, and I'm taking what I read here and applying it to my home office - Suzanne: you'll be happy to know I've started off 2009 unencumbered by 2 LARGE bags of trash and two more bags are waiting to be burned in the wood stove this weekend (no shredding for me!)! And what a sense of accomplishment when I downsized to ONE calendar - okay, I admit I still have one on the wall in my house and on my desk at work, but I have only one planner... I'm going to try my best to use my Franklin Covey planner again this year, but I switched to weekly rather than daily - planning is more my problem than recording what I've done which is what I was doing with a whole page per day... If it doesn't work, I have a back-up plan: I have a monthly calendar that is just ready to step into the breach...

And Kristina Werner's kwernerdesignblog - SO many lovely scrapping and cardmaking ideas! Kristina deserves this award just for the sheer lovliness of her blog, to say nothing of her creativity! I've learned so much from her weekly videos - she makes new techniques so easy and so many of her ideas are just milling around in my brain, just waiting for an opportunity to be put to paper!!!

There are probably many more blogs that deserve the Lovely Blog award, but I'm back at work and I have to begin actually working...

Later!
