Blog Awards

I was given the "I Love Your Blog" award from:

Diana's Website: Diana Evans, Art & Illustration
Diana's Etsy Shop: Sweet Things by Diana Evans

Stacy's Team Member Site: Collective Artwerx
Stacy is a Design Team member of Collective Artwerx

Nancy's Etsy Shop: Collage Art

Melissa's Website: Pug Notes by Melissa Langer
Melissa's Etsy Shop: Pug Notes by Melissa Langer


These artists are accomplished and serious about the business of art, but they're never too busy to visit friends and offer generosity and encouragement. I've watched them develop their businesses and their talents. They all make me want to work harder and do better. Other than their excellent art, another quality that they all share is the importance of family. "Kindred spirits" is a good phrase that describes this talented group.

I share this award with the following artists: Brigitte, Heather, Jacq, Scrappy Cat, Marianne and Melinda. I Love Your Blogs! If your name is on this list and you read this post, feel free to take the award and share it if you like. Email me if you prefer the borderless award image.

I received this Brillante Weblog Award from Laughingwolf who is a writer/animator and blogs at Paws and Reflect. Some of the articles on his blog "scare" me and sometimes make me blush--yes, they do, Laughingwolf. However, I enjoy his cartoons and his daily editorials are thought-provoking, which appropriately reflects the title of his blog. Visits to "Paws and Reflect" remind me that there is a bigger world than the one I've created inside my cocoon. Thanks for the giggles, the balance, and the honor of receiving this award, Laughingwolf.

Thanks, Friends, for your generosity!
