I Was Nominated!

Painted by the very hand of God in our backyard!

Do you ever get excited when you know you have mail in your 'inbox' ~ you just can't wait to hear what is being shared with you about your creations? Do you ever realized that you've got the biggest smile on your face when you read your comments? Are you ever amazed when you receive some of this love when it comes from wonderfully talented people that you actually follow and you're so pleased to hear a 'well done' from them? Do you ever......I was so honoured when I came home last night from a beautiful dinner with my DH and friends. This is what I found 

'Denise...I nominated you for a blog award. Please visit Saturday's post on The Stampin' Schach.' 

Wow!!!! ARE YOU SERIOUS (yes, I'm yelling in a good way) So here I am, just got out of bed, savouring my morning cup of java and just giggling with excitement as I share this with you....sorry, I'm a bit excited! Never entered the world of blog with this in mind, just thought it would be fun and a way to stretch me in my creativity! I signed up as a SU Demo about 2.5 years ago with no upline and have no downline. So I'm a lone ranger, blogging has helped so much!

Ann is incredibly talented ~ I absolutely LOVE her style and her blog is beautiful! Ann I want to thank you once again for this award ~ I am truly honoured to have been nominated for this award!
 The Liebster Blog Award is given to bring new blogs to light. It's a great way to share blogs that might not otherwise be seen or ones you want to share with others.

As a recipient of this award I must share the love and pay it forward by:
1-Creating a post where I blog about the Liebster award & reveal my 3-5 blog picks
2-Let the honorees know that I selected them
3-Copy & paste the blog award on my blog

I follow quite a few blogs as I'm always hungry for more ideas, tips & help! It was difficult to narrow this down, but these gals are truly gifted ~ be sure to stop by for a visit and leave a bit of love along the way!

  5. Denise, Thank you so much for nominating me for this award. You are too sweet. I just love your work and your beautiful blog. Also, like you, I have no upline and felt like such an orphan for a while. I do have a downline, my beautiful niece, but she is in another state so I too love the community of bloggers/friends that I have found . Thank you again.

    ((Hugs)) - Tara
