Suffice it to say that last night was a crummy night. Despite all our well-laid plans, hubby found out that he has to work a double on Christmas Eve, and another the day after Christmas....which leaves our out-of-town Christmas plans in ruins. I've been really upset about it since I found our around 6 last evening, and the Christmas spirit, which usually runs thick in these veins, has been running thin. I didn't even start my Christmas baking last night, which was in the works, because I was so bummed out.
But this morning, I awoke to some sweet, wonderful, AMAZING news that not ONE blogosphere friend, but TWO, have awarded Simply Charming in SC on blogspot some fantastic awards!!! It's the first time I've ever been honored in such a way, and so I'm thrilled to tell you a little about each!!
The first award received was given by Robin (TQMNurse) from Robin's Nest--Scrap Out Loud. I've been a follower of her blog since very early on in my "blog" career (as my husband calls it) and am so touched that she would think to nominate me for the "Lovely Blog" award!!!
I have to give another shout out to The Cutest Blog on the Block for the awesome blog template that made my blog look so FANTASTIC!! Now all I have to worry about is keeping the content up-to-date, checking my spelling, and continuing to entertain the masses with my wit and intelligence (hahaha).
Having never participated in an "Award Ceremony," I'd like to offer the rules for participating. Now that I have received the award, it falls to my hands to select seven blogs I adore, and nominate THEM for the honor. So, for those of you lucky seven, here are the rules as were published on Robin's blog:
The Rules :
1. Add the logo to your blog.
2. Link to the person from whom you received this award
3. Nominate 7 or more blogs
4. Leave a message on their blog, letting them know they are "One Lovely Blog"!
And so, without further ado....drum roll please....here are MY 7 picks for the "One Lovely Blog" award!!!
You'll notice a majority of them are South Carolina artisans from the SC Etsy Street Team...and those that are not are still etsians! I can't help it...I read what I love! :) So congratulations to you 7 ladies...I'm so happy to be able to nominate you for this award! It gives me a great feeling to tell the world (or at least my readers) how much I enjoy your blogs!
Now onto award number 2, ever so graciously given by my new blog friend, Kat, at Candles, Crafts & Whatnot. This one is the "Blog Love" award. And as you know from previous posts, I'm all about sending some blog love!!! There weren't any rules with this blog, so I'm going to name a few below for you to check out...I'm spreadin' the love!!!
So I'd just like to say a final thank you to Robin and Kat for helping me smile today---you'll never know how much I needed it!!! And to all those featured award winners---keep doing what you're doing!!!
Until next time, love from,
