Blog awards!

Yayy! Lookie what I got today - not one blog award but two! I do like getting these awards as I feel I have somehow connected with someone in a virtual kind of way. The first one is from the wonderfully talented Marsha at Her colourful, whimsical collage art is a great source of inspiration - do take a look. This is what the award is all about:

“The Renee award was created by Bella and Ces in honour of their friend Renee. In Bella's own words "this is a brand new award and I have the pleasure and honor of spreading the seed, watching it grow. I hope it finds it's way to those who are like Renee: the acorn, a small package becoming a tall and sturdy oak, giving more acorns, becoming tall and sturdy oaks, giving acorns…” See Renee's blog: Circling My Head

Thanks so much Marsha, I'm truly honoured. I would like to hand this award on to the following people - talented artists - some new friends and some old (oops, don't take that the wrong way hee hee) whose blogs I love to visit regularly and that I find a great source of inspiration:

Dyan (aka Dylan) at

Roc at

Diana at

Shelly at

Cathy at

Tanya at

Do pay these blogs a visit - I promise you it's worth it!

And the next award from Cindy who has not one blog, but two! Cindy is massively into genealogy but also loves to craft Thanks Cindy, I'm honoured that you thought of me :-)

Since becoming a blogger and joining this virtual world, I have been constantly amazed at the friendliness and generosity of fellow bloggers. I feel like I have friends all over the world even though I haven't met them! Maybe one day we'll organise a massive blog party and meet up with all the lovely, talented, creative people that we have bumped into in blogland. So I hand this award on to the following friendlybloggers:

Dyan at

Shelly at

Diana at

Thanks to you all for your friendship, your e-mails, your blog comments and your inspiration.

Bye for now


  1. Oh my goodness! I am getting spoiled. But it's good, too, because there are more blogs I want to give awards to and send people to. So, I thank you, you sweet lady. I am honored and appreciate you thinking of me!

    If you knew how much I'd been thinking about you the last day or two you'd be scared. I am trying to find what I want to use to make you a fish piece. I am so hung up! Yours is just so good I feel I can't match it. But, I did make you an ATC which is on my blog or flickr wherever you might like to get a preview. It's the first ATC I've made in awhile and it was fun. Anyway, when I get my fish piece done I am going to feature you on my blog - hopefully sometime this weekend. If I don't get it done by then, you'd better make sure I haven't pulled my hair out!

    Thank you, again. Have a wonderful weekend!


    p.s. I will go visit all of your awardees - I love meeting new people and revisiting ones we like together!

  2. Aww, thanks for the award, Kate! I appreciate it. I have to admit, I'm not a very good blogger these days...I'm behind in updating my own and I don't find much time to visit others' lately (although I do peek in on yours and Shelly's for new eye candy LOL). Hoping I will change my bad habits soon! Anyway, I'm honored with your award. Thank you very much :o)

  3. Thanks Kate for the friendly blog award. I haven't blogged much lately as I have been getting samples prepared for future workshops.
    My husband returned from the UK yesterday complete with a copy of this months Craft Stamper - a real treat as we don't get craft mags out here and especially as you are in it - well done. It is so lovely to see someone whose work you know featured in a magazine. You well deserve it - your work is so inspiring. May you feature in many more issues.

  4. Kate, thanks so much for the award honours, you're too kind. I finally posted on my blog and love visiting all the blogs you've nominated. I can't believe Marsha is hung up on creating a fish piece for you ... her work is awesome. By the way, any chance you can buy an extra copy of that magazine you're in and I send you the money?? Thanks again and chat soon.


Thanks so much for leaving a comment!
