My Very First Blog Award!

I received a wonderful blog award from Heather of Azure Islands Designs, who makes the most beautiful jewelry! This is my first award--ever--and I'm thrilled that she honored me with it.

Now it's my honor to be able to present this award to five other bloggers. That's tough for me: there are dozens of bloggers I read regularly and who are perfectly suited for this. Here are my five awardees:

Sara of Etsy Profiles selflessly promotes artists and artisans with pure sweetness. There's always something new and interesting on her blog, and anyone who promotes shopping with us little indies instead of big retailers is a winner in my book. She also makes lovely totes, cards, and other pretties.

LaWatha of LaWatha's Glass and More is one of the first and nicest people I met when I joined the Creative Glass Guild of Etsy. I'm not one of the most active team members by any stretch, but LaWatha has always been kind and considerate and the sort who seems happy to share her knowledge. And her glass is stunning!

Pearl of Fehu Stoneware makes gorgeous and unique pottery. I could look at her shop all day long, daydreaming that everything was really in my own house. She always has something nice to say, even if when I don't pop up on her radar for months at a time.

Marisa of Elegant Snobbery was the first person to include my glass jewelry on her blog. In fact, she was probably my first introduction to the blogosphere. And she had the patience and generosity to answer my bazillion questions about marketing and blogging.

Lady Rose of Diet Pulpit. I usually avoid dieting blogs because they tend to make me think I should diet. Although she does include some diet and nutrition info, there's always something interesting going on, and I never leave feeling like I should stock up on celery sticks.

If you've got a few minutes go have a peak at these blogs--you're sure to find something delightful!
