Paying It Forward

Update:  Imagine my surprise when I saw that I'd received another lovely award yesterday!

Thank you Michelle from All Home Cooking. All Year Long  for thinking of me. Truly, I am so honored. I thought I'd combine it wit this post because I'm going to admit up front that I'm going to cheat a bit. This award asks us to post 7 things about ourselves and since I'd just done this and am not that interesting really, they're all on the list below!  The guidelines for accepting this award are...

  • Thank the person/people who gave it to you.
  • Tell 7 things yourself.
  • Pass the award on to 15 bloggers, whom you have recently discovered, and think are fantastic.
So I am passing this award on to:
  1. Calamity Anne's Adventures
  2. Charm Bracelet Diva
  3. Chic on A Shoestring Decorating
  4. Christine & Co
  5. Crafts & Sutch
  6. I Been Thinkin' 'Bout Inkin
  7. Leksi Designs...This Handmade Life
  8. Life In My PJs
  9. mbellished
  10. Mich in LA
  11. Mosaic Magpie
  12. Pony Tails & Fish Scales
  13. The Little Green Bean
  14. The CraftInMe
  15. Get Craftin
Fun blogs with great ideas and definitely worth a visit :)

If you've never seen the movie of the same name or are unfamiliar with the term, simply put it's like a future propelled "Golden Rule". You do nice things for other people and they do the same to others, thus, paying it forward. Dawn K from  The Way I See Things surprised and blew me away by presenting me with two awards! I'm humbled and honored:
So first things first and a huge THANK YOU Dawn!

And now time for me to "Pay It Forward" which is as much fun as receiving the awards!

Why, Thank you! I'm blushing! Congrats to you and thanks so much for thinking of me!

Blue Artichoke Interiors said...

Congrats on your very deserving award! I love your blog and truly think (like you) that chocolate is the answer to many, many things. (That certainly explains why I had to work out with a trainer this morning.) This is why it is such an honor to receive this award from you. I have a kind of crazy day, but promise I will pay it forward this afternoon when things are not too hectic.
