A Week Full Of Surprises

I had a wonderful email yesterday morning from my TJ buddy, Beth Ullman, at Nana's Memories and More. She has awarded me with, not one, but TWO awards as you will see below.

I love giving and because I do I am splitting the awards, which means I get to give to 14 people. Whoopee! So much for that. It took me forever to try to find new blogs that hadn't received the awards below and it was so time consuming, time I didn't have, that I finally gave that criteria up. The rules of the I Love Your Blog award are to link the award back to the Blogger from whom you received the award. That person is Beth at Nana's Memories and More for both awards. Next I name 7 Bloggers to receive the above award.

This is the hard to do for 2 reasons. The first is that everyone who has worked their way into the world of blogging deserves this award. Not everyone finds computers and the different programs easy. The second one is some already have awards and some do not even though they deserve them. I try for first time awards, but alas, I am not perfect. I also go down my "FEED" list alphabetically. I am going to give one last instruction and I hope I am not offending anyone. It took me forever to try to find new blogs that hadn't received the above awards and it was so time consuming that I finally gave that criteria up.

The 7 bloggers for the I Love Your Blog Award are:

1. Lyn at Arty Aspirations

2. Candy at Candy's Land

3. Ret at Cards 'n Crafts

4. Theresa at Crafting the Web

5. Donna at Dee's Studio

6. Jennifer at Jennifer's Sweet Designs

7. Dina over at Mama Dini's . She is the new Guest Designer at Impression-Obsession.

Now the 7 bloggers I chose for the Brilliante Award, who should also link thier award back here.

1. Amanda at Happy Accidents

2. Jorunn at Jorunn Sit Hobbyhjome

3. Maria at Joyful Stamper

4. Kim at Kim's Kards

5. Carol at Carol's Paper Playce

6. Cat at Cat's Creations..............She will work for stamps ! LOL

7. Chris at Craftling's Cosy Corner................She has a new look!.......oh, it was lovely before too!

Thanks for stopping by 'the blog' and if nothing else, you have the names of some wonderful blogs with some great eye candy. Congrats everyone.
