I don't deserve it, but I'll take it!

The wonderfully gifted and kind Edrian Thomidis and the incredibly talented Kathy Hare have just given me a fantastic and touching surprise! They have nominated me for this incredibly sweet "I heart your blog" award. Oh, Edrian and Kathy, you are much too kind!

Now, according to the rules, I am to nominate seven other blogs for this award. My mind is spinning with all the new wonderful blogging friends I have made over the past several months and all their truly inspirational blogs. So many I wish I could nominate, some I have nominated before. This time, I'd like to nominate seven more remarkable people who always seem to have something witty or crafty or inspirational to say. I heart you all!

1. Luci at Everything & Nothing
2. Donna at The Cookie Sheet
3. Krisztina at SketchPause
4. Cata at Cata's Craft
5. Aimee at Artsyville
6. Vanessa at Ooh La La Design Studio
7. Esque at Inkihandmade

The rules 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 of the girls or boys you’ve nominated

Spread the love, baby. Spread the love!

Ooooh Bella,
You are to sweet... I don't know what to say... Wow!
I'm so very honored by this. I've got a big mouth, but you have just shut it!. Thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart. God bless you for even thinking of me. You know we throw around how much we like each others blog, but honestly, I do look to see what you are up to because I like the way you write and I adore your artwork. You and I are so alike in so many ways. Let's promise to keep in touch as much as possible. Again I am honored that you thought of me. Take care and email me again!!!!

isn't blogging fun ;)
I would have put it down to self indulgence had I not connected with, and witnessed so many seriously great artists here in the blogosphere.
These comments illustrate just that.
Nice work!

Thank you very much, Bella, for this award. I’m pretty much stunned and stumped. My words will only echo what so commonly thought and embraced by others … that you have a graceful heart and wonderful talent. Altogether you give all of us sweet pleasure through your beautiful art and your splendid self.
