Blog Award

I was visiting a new blog friend of mine, Karen, the other day and saw that she has awarded me this wonderful award! I was very excited and honored to receive it! Thank you Karen! I look forward to what will hopefully be a long blog friendship! :)

Here are the Deets of the award:

- Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.

- 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.

I received my first blog award this month... this is my second. What I realized with my first award was that they are bitter sweet.... especially if you want to give one to all of your blog friends! I am so excited when I receive it but... almost upset when I have to pick who to give it to. If I visit your blog... it is because I enjoy your blog.

Anyway... With the first award, I was only able to give it (according to the 'rules') to 8 people. This award says 15 but I have limited myself to 5.

I am fairly new to the blog world (as far as having my own) so all of the blogs I visit (except for the PTI girls blogs) are still what I consider 'new' to me!

I have found some very new blogs recently but am choosing to give some of the older - new girls some love. :) Does that make sense? I have been visiting these blogs for a little while and thoroughly enjoy every minute that I spend on their blogs!

Kelly Marie - Lawn Fawn Cards

Dana - Paper Daydream

Kristina - Itty Bitty Pieces of Me

Lynnette - Netter's Notables

Stephanie - Papercraftersthoughts

Thanks again Karen! It really does mean a lot to me! :)

I hear ya, Kelley! Picking the blogs & their authors/artists is definitely the most difficult part about blog awards! It has taken me up to a week sometimes to make the decision! Good for you, for making the award work for you. I really enjoy my time here and was really delighted to find you and pass it on to what is definitely, a lovely blog! :>

So sorry you have been having trouble getting to my blog! I hope that's not a universal problem. I've had problems getting to many blogs on the desktop since we upgraded to IE8 (sometimes it lets me in, sometimes it doesn't...what's up with that?!). I haven't upgraded on my laptop yet because of that and have better success (not sure if its an Internet Explorer thing or a Vista vs. XP thing..........hubby's still on XP & I'm on Vista). Let me know if it keeps happening and I'll start asking around with people with different systems, browsers, and platforms to see if I can figure out where the problem is. Since I'm not uber tech saavy, I hope it gets better soon! :> I really enjoy your visits! :>

Lynnette said...

Aww, thank you. You made my day. Congrats on the award and thanks for sharing it with me. I love my blog-friendships and consider myself blessed to have "met" you.

Stephanie said...

Kelley, you are the sweetest!!! I truly enjoying visiting your blog, getting sooooo inspired, and *reading* your posts - it may be quicker to just check out photos, but I love spending the time reading posts, especially yours!! it's amazing at how connected you begin to feel to your BgFs (blogger friends) after such a short amount of time. I look forward to the blogging times ahead :)

thanks for not referring to me as 'old' :) - I got whatcha meant!!

Kristina said...

Kelley, thank you so much! I love visiting your blog everyday... You really have perfected the "clean and simple" look. When I try to do that, my cards look so empty and blah. Your my CAS idol! ;)

I hear ya on meeting new friends in the blog world. I just started my blog back in March and feel like it's just been recently that I've started to really "get to know people (blog-style)." I feel like people truly become friends through our little blog posts and chats at stamp releases. It's such a friendly little community.
