My dear friend Shell has nominated me..or rather tagged me with a blogger award...geez thanks Shell...i would have posted sooner without an award like this!!
Shell and I met at a TLC (Top Line Creations) convention in Las Vegas in 2005! We both sat at the California table and low and behold...she only live ~30 miles down the road in San Jose. We became fast convention pals and continued..for some reason however..we dont see each other much during the year..now that we wont be attending TLC conventions..we'll have to come up with another plan to rectify that!! So..thanks for the Award, Shell..I'll blog more so i dont get another. HA!
copying..and pasting from Shell...Ok so I have to pick 5 people now - the rules are below my picks. This is not easy either - cos some of the ones I wanted to pick have been picked already - and we don't want a whole merry go round of awards!
Karen Burniston - Karen is one of my favorite celebrity bloggers to read. She has such humor in the way she writes
P-Dub - I know Shell nominated her..and I'm sure the entire blog reading population of the world has nomiated her..but she truly deserves it. Like Karen, she has a total way with words that just cannot be. Her recipes are yummy, her backstory about how she met, courted, married her husband has me swooning, she lives on a ranch with some pretty hot cowboys!..and what the heck..she has a sister name Betsy!
Laurie S. - Laurie and I met through a yahoo group..and then another yahoo group and got to scrap in person. We probably on scrap once a year since we live on each side of the bay..but she's a wonderful woman, and it's been wonderful to see her get married and the birth of her children etc. I love reading her blog..and while you're there, take some time to donate to the Walk she's doing for her son!!
Scrap Lovers at A work of Heart - say that 5 times fast. Andrea (A Work of Heart) and I have known each other since 2004. We both do Scrapbooking for Others, and met on a yahoo group associated with it. Andrea was looking for people to contract pages, when she got swamped (she's uber talented), but I didnt meet with her for over a year because I was afraid, even though my clients liked my work..would hers. We both attended the same CKU in San Jose..and then eventually met up at her studio where I worked on some pages for her, as well as taught classes and helped out with the studio. Kristina, (ScrapLovers) is her new business partner ..and is a very talented woman in her own mind with a ton of great ideas. I'm super inspired by these women every time I'm in their presence and look forward to updates on their blog with the latest studio/store happenings.
Amuse Art Stamps - I've been a fan for about 3 years. My friend Sonja introduced me when I had a stamp day with her..and then enabled me by bringing me down to a local store that carried the stamps. I've since joined an 'addicts' group (funny they enable more than help you get over your addicition) and am first in line to buy new stamps when they're released. Linda is very talented, as are all her designers and instructors. Amuse is one of the first blogs I read through reader to catch up on my blogs (where did i not find reader for so very long..especially when using blogger!!) and I hope that one day I can take a class from Linda in person!!
