I would like to thank...

Since it is awards season again, I've been thinking about what I would say and who I would thank if I had to step to the podium and try to be composed, while thinking, "Holy sh*t, I did it! I won!" Since that opportunity won't ever present itself...*LOL*...another has!

I am the recipient of two nominations for the Kreativ Blogger Award...and I would like to thank both Ann and Linda for so graciously nominating me. There are rules that must be followed for acknowledging the receipt of the award and for paying it forward...

However, can I tell a little story first. I had been blogging for about a year...and the "Rockin Girl Blogger" award was making its way through blogland. I just knew someone would nominate me...I mean I blogged about every other day. I included pictures of my garments on my blog. I thought I could sew a little bit and I was polite and encouraging to others in blogland. I watched that award go round and round, totally skipping over me...until finally about round 6 or 7 someone nominated me. By that point, I was so thrilled that someone, anyone had finally thought of me...but I do remember feeling unworthy, unloved and unwanted as I waited for someone, anyone (Gawd, I was ready to pay someone!) to nominate me.

So I'm gonna break with the rules here and nominate everyone who has a blog in sewing land, everyone whose blog I've visited and left a comment (because being a comment 'ho myself, I know how thrilling it is to get them! *LOL*), to everyone who has left me a comment and I haven't made it to your blog yet...I'm coming, I just need some TIME to sew! *LOL*

Because anyone who takes the time to set your thoughts to this medium, who shares a technique, who lists a pattern they like, realizes that this bloggin' thing is not easy to do! People expect alot from you once you start to blog frequently and have a lot of things to share with you both good and bad! *LOL* But we all need to be recognized for the fact that we consistently share our love of sewing with each other and the world!

I just don't want to be the cause of someone sitting and wondering when it's going to be their turn! I want you to know that it's your turn right now! So if you read my blog and have a blog, you are NOMINATED! You WIN! Proudly display the Kreativ Blogger award in a post, on your sidebar and say that I nominated you...because YOU ARE special!

...and finally thank you, thank you all for coming by, for leaving such wonderful comments and for thinking I'm special! It's appreciated more than you know!!

  1. Thanks for the offer, I do treasure it. But I'm not putting that logo up unless somebody names me specifically. It'll happen, right?

  3. Congratulations! If anyone deserves this award, you do. You may not be the most expert sewist to blog(as you stated in your last post) but you are often the most honest, interesting and fun to read.

  7. I just noticed what a terrible run-on sentence I wrote in the post above. Excuse the grammar (from this former educator) and enjoy the compliment.

  8. Carolyn: I notice a whole bunch of really great bloggers get nominated last. Why? Don't know. Your response to this nomination is sweet though.

  10. Congratulations, Carolyn. I'm really surprised you haven't been nominated before this. Perhaps they were saving the best for last???
    Your blog is one of my favorites, keep it up.

  15. I agree with you. It is important to recognize the bloggers who we depend on, but there are so many it seems unfair to decide sometimes! I love reading your blog and seeing your projects, though -- and you definitely deserve the award. Keep up the good work!

  16. Hey Carolyn,
    Hope you had a wonderful week as I did with the big O in office. :)

    Faye also awarded me and the first person I thought of to pass it on was you. Then I come here and you already got it. See how good you are!

    So, I'm giving it to you again because of how special you are:

    Be good to yourself and enjoy those oh so precious sewing moments, Cindy

  17. Been there, felt that. But to me, I have to agree nothing slaps a big "P" for "Pathetic" on your forehead like nominating yourself for an award going around the blog cliques. . .feels like high school all over again.

  20. Whoo hoo! Well deserved. Congratulations and we appreciate the efforts you put into blogging.

  21. I agree with everyone who says that you so do deserve this award. I was feeling a litle "nobody likes me everybody hates me" 'cause I didn't "get" the award, but then again, my postings never can compare to your posts, and the contributions you give so freely to people.

  22. Oh Carolyn, that's so funny! I remember the first tag or award or whatever that went around the sewing blog world and feeling the very same way, wondering if someone - shoot anyone - would think enough of my musings to pass the award on my way *LOL* I bet everyone thought you'd already received the award and that's why it didn't make it's way to you first. I love reading your blog, even when I don't have time to stop and leave a comment.

  23. Of course you deserve it. I find your comments fun and helpful and I love your blog. So glad to have found you on blogland!

  24. My mommy has been nominated for awards and my sisters didn't tell me...no surprise there. lol

    Congratulations Mommy!! You deserve it..i know 1st hand all the time you put into your blog..

  25. Carolyn, thanks for offering the award that way, but I, like some others, won't post it unless actually nominated. I, too, have never received one, but that's ok. I blog because I like reading and sharing my adventures and learning from others, like yours. I know you say what you say, you are not an expert, etc, but you are great at what you do, you are comfortable with you and your look, and make a great presentation. You are also well-written and great at organizing the posts, photos, patterns, etc. Congrats and thank you for your inspiration and sharing.

  26. You are so right!!!

    I didn't nominate anyone in particular because I feel so bad letting the others behind... There's just too many Creative Bloggers worthy of this award and I am not picking just a few, it would be unfair!
