Celebrating The Weekend and an Award!

Hi everyone! I can't begin to tell you all how happy I am to have the time this morning to catch up on all of the blogs that I enjoy reading! When I started my blog a few months ago, I didn't even really know why I was doing it. I somehow stumbled onto some craft blogs, and enjoyed reading them. I didn't even really know what the blog world was all about! So I hopped on board thinking that I would never have anything to post about, or would probably lose interest. That has turned out to NOT be the case! I enjoy it very much, and feel that I have made some lovely friends here.

Audrey from Audrey's Country Crafts, held a giveaway a while back, and I won it! I am embarrassed that I have taken this long to post about it. For fear that my reason for my procrastination will sound more like an excuse, I will just leave it at...I'm sorry. I won a wonderful cookbook ( I just LOVE cookbooks!), and a tote that she handcrafted herself!! She also sent me a lovely hand painted ornament.

I opened up my email this morning to find that Audrey has given me an award! I am very touched by this award and the intent behind it. If you want to learn more about how this award came to be go here please. The only rule is...if I pass it along to anyone, Audrey would like to know who has received it! Well, I knew straight away who it was going to! I enjoy many blogs, but these two ladies are among the first ones that I began following. I'm not even sure how I stumbled onto them, because their blogs are not "craft blogs". They are pure hearted blogs about their lives.

Nicolle (from Boyd's Crazy Mama) and I often joke about being long lost sisters. We have much in common, and I enjoy exchanging comments with her very much. You really must go over there for a visit. If for absolutely no other reason, the current picture on her banner will instantly put a smile on your face!

Jeannie (from Jeannie's Happy World) always has a post to put a smile on your face. From her sense of humor to videos of her daughter Bella singing, dancing, and just being a little girl, there is something for everyone! Especially now that I suspect that Jeannie has bitten by the craft bug!

So this award goes to these two lovely ladies! And to both of you, thank you very much for your kindness and friendship!

Oh Cassie, I just love you! You are so sweet and I can't be luckier to have met you as such a good blogging friend! My blog friends' list is not huge, but the ones I have made I really do treasure. I certainly think you and I have a kindred spirit and are somehow sisters, in one way or another!! :)

Thank you so much for thinking of me. This has made my day! I will get it posted and passed along soon.

Thank you, sis! :)))
