I am feeling that two awards in less than one week is something to celebrate. To celebrate that I am so much feeling like The Bomb, and it is worth celebrating. Absolutely a celebration! And so to that end, I am announcing both awards in one post.
It’s a party!!
The two bloggers who awarded me these awards have helped me feel like I am the Bomb. And frankly my blogging audience it is something that rather perked me up. Of course, saying I am the Bomb are my words. They neither one really said that.
The fact that I was honored twice in less than a weeks time is pretty special in my world. So I will take every ounce of esteem these awards give me and run with it. Letting the spirit in which they were given shine over my life and my writing. I think that these two special women who gifted these different awards to me should be celebrated. And I should shine my light on the two of them and their blogs.
So in that light, I am going to do kust as I want. I am going to shine my light on each of these women and their blogs. I encourage to visit both, you will find the content of each blog fascinating and so very different from one another. I like this. Diversity in blogging is what it is all about I believe.
Shining my light on the first award of my week. ~
My first award The Sunshine Award was given to me by a very lovely & crafty lady. She creates some of the most incredible needlework pieces with her passion of crosstiching. She is fast too! Blows my mind how quickly she can get an idea, find or create the pattern which is not easy to do. An FYI for those of you who may not be familiar with crossstitching
ThisistheCraftyone surprised me completely out of the blue with awarding me with the Sunshine Award. I had been wondering for a few weeks off and on why I was not getting any email alerts for new postings. I actually was starting to wonder if she was okay because I thought she just was not posting anything. Then last week I find a message from her. She has been blogging all along while being the busy creative craftier that she is. It was on my end the reason I was not receiving alerts regarding her blog. I had apparently and inadvertently changed a setting that stopped me from receiving alerts when a new post was published. Go Figure.
This amazing and talented blogger can be found at http://thisisthecraftyone.wordpress.com/2012/06/07/a-little-bit-of-sunshine/ I am honored and I am touched that she thought of me. And to be remembered by being awarded this striking award is extremely kind and thoughtful. Thank you!
A note from Your Baroness: There are of course typical guidelines that come with the awards that I should be required to follow through with. I say should because I am making an executive decision. And like all good executives I will not explain why but just that it is so. I am making the choice that although I am accepting these awards with so much gratitude I am not going to comply with the guidelines. I do hope with each word I write that this choice of mine will not offend anyone,
and drum roll for # 2 please………
THE BEAUTIFUL BLOGGER AWARD~
My # 2 award comes to me from a blogger that has in some odd way feels much like a virtual little sister. Shining my light for Judith; who writes her story as a complete open book on her blog which can be found at http://diabeticredemption.com/2012/06/07/beautiful-blogger-award/
Judith is a truth teller and a truth seeker. She also is one of the most intelligent women I communicate with on a blogging basis. I appreciate her raw honesty, and the journey that she is traveling on. In so many ways the paths with which she takes small treks on are very similar to those of my own when I was about the same age in life. I have the gift and treasure of enjoying Judith’s unconditional support for my own journey. She is very much an Old Soul and her wisdom and advice that she brings to me are treasured gems. Just as this award is to me. A treasure.Thank you Judith!!!
Both you two ladies have very much let me feel like I Am The Bomb Of The Week How could two awards almost at the same time not? With that being said, I The Bomb, would like to send you the biggest squeeze of a thankful and grateful hug that I can~
THANK YOU LADIES!!!!!
