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!!
