Random Thoughts & Blog Awards!

For some reason it feels like I'm starting over with my blog since I got back from my trip. I have one more trip related post planned and then things will be getting back to normal around here. I hope you all haven't given up on me. I will be getting back to more typical craft related content very soon I promise. I have been knitting up a storm since I got back from my trip with a newly renewed passion, and getting my inventory all prepared for the upcoming fall season. I'm wanting to get some decent pictures taken soon of inventory to post as well. If the nice cool weather holds up maybe this weekend will be a good time for it.

While I was gone I was given a few lovely blog awards by some lovely ladies. First Fallen Angel Jewellery Designs awarded me the One Lovely Blog Award. She makes some seriously gorgeous jewelry like the Gothic design above in her shop on etsy here.

And the amazingly prolific blogger Jodi of Bargain Central awarded me the Lovely Blog Award. She updates her blog many times a day with great deals, freebies, and coupons.

The rules for the awards are pretty similar and I am going to combine them together if you don't mind:

1. Accept the award.
2. Post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, along with his or her blog link.
3. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you have newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

Here are my 15 new discoveries with some super creative folks you should totally check out:

1. Crafters Guru
2. Able Mabel
3. Diary of a Mad Crafter
4. Experimentalk
5. I like it Frantic
6. Indie Style
7. Live Passionately
8. Sharing Our Gifts
9. Domestic Disaster
10. It's Gravy, baby!
11. Selahestelle
12. SoSoRosey
13. Wouldn't you like to See Something Strange?
14. Earth to Holly
15. Fabulously Funky

when I came back from my trip, I felt renewed too. Maybe that's why they call it a vacation!? {:-D

My comment is not about the awards but about the great necklace in the photo, it is stunning! Just found your site through Twitter. Looks like you write some great posts. Will have to take a good look around!

Yay! Thank you. This is the first recognition for my Sharing Our Gifts blog. I have not been posting there as often as I would like, and will have to step it up! Right now, however, I am offline fighting yellow jackets...(see NatureWithMe blog).
Have a lovely day!

I hear ya on the blog starting over thing. You get so into it that when you schedule too far ahead you feel a bit detatched...meanwhile getting behind on reading other's blogs. Don't worry bout it. Your blog has blown up! You've got so many fans now:)

Holy cow. I thought I had come to say 'thanks' for your very kind award, but it appears I did not. How rude! I am so sorry and thank you so much...it was very kind of you to think of me!
