Awards and An Apology

I have been nominated for two awards! As all of you other bloggers know, anything that lets you know that there are actually people out there who read your words and enjoy seeing your work - whether it be comments, awards or just hits on your counter - is a real treat! :)

The extra nice thing about these awards is that it gives me a formal opportunity to call out some of the blogs that I really enjoy!

But first, the apology. Elaina of Sew Ducky nominated me for this first award a loooong time ago, and I truly intended to accept it and pass it on much more quickly. Thank you so much, Elaina, and I'm sorry it took me so long!

According to the originating blog, The Scholastic Scribe, the theme of this award is captured in the following quote:

"Diverting the internal traffic between the Writer as Angel of Light and the Writer as Hustler is the scribbling child in a grown-up body, wondering if anyone is listening."
~Herbert Gold, Elder Statesman of The Beat Generation~

As usual, there are conditions attached to the Award. In this case, the rules are a little bit more complex than usual:

* Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.

* Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author and the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.

* Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to this Post, which explains The Award.

* Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we’ll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor!

* Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.

With that being said, here are my nominations:

  1. Jeannine at SewPink
  2. Mamafitz at Whatever is on my mind today
  3. Caity of Caity Quilter
  4. Alison of sewing with cats
  5. Ed of Dear Dave

I hope that each of you will accept this award, but of course it is optional and just for fun! :)

Next, thank you so much to Alviana of Sewn by Alviana, Lisa H. of Sew On and Sew On, Donna Hodgson of Donna's Den and Mary of MarySews for nominating me for the Kreativ Blogger Award!

The rules for this award seem to be the pretty standard set:

1. Copy the award to your site.

2. Link to the person from whom you received the award.

3. Nominate 7 other bloggers.

4. Link to those on your blog.

5. Leave a message on the blogs you nominated.

Here are my nominations:

  1. Christine of And Sew it Begins
  2. Sarah of In a Nutshell, Anachronism
  3. Amelia of Amelia Sews
  4. Luppylulu of Nibbles and Bytes
I hope that each of you will accept this award, but of course it is optional and just for fun! :)

If any of these blogs in either list are new to you, I encourage you to stop by and check them out. All of these are special people who inspire me! :)

Thanks Gwen! That is really sweet of you. I have been busy lately and haven't been up to blogging.
