I checked my blogs this morning, and I feel so blessed and proud to announce that I've been given not one, but TWO awards from Kat at Candles, Crafts and Whatnot. Thanks Kat! If you've never read her blog, you should really check it out!! She makes fantastic jewelry...and these recent additions to her Artfire site happen to be favorites of mine:

Who doesn't want Edward Cullen earrings???? So hot! At any rate, I'd like to share these wonderful awards with you! The first one is this lovely little beauty, the "FAB" award. YAY! I don't know very many people who don't love being referred to as fabulous, me included!!

Aw...cute lil' FiFi! This award doesn't just say "fabulous," it makes me feel "fabulous!" And I'd love to share that feeling with a few of the most fabulous blogs I know! So here are a few I'd like to offer this award to:

The Beaded Tail : This blog is a must-see for any pet lovers. Not only are there wonderful commentaries from her pets' perspectives, but she makes lovely kitty and puppy jewelry, too!
Crystal Raen's Recycled Craft Things : Not only is Crystal a very talented artist, but her blog is colorful, informative, and real. Nothing's more fabulous than that!!
Lovely Purses : I think I give Duni at Lovely Purses an award everytime I get one LOL...but I can't help it!! Her blog is FABULOUS!!

The next award is a unique one I've never seen before. Thanks again to Kat for bringing it into my world! It's called the "Van Gogh Ear Award," and props go to Roger DMan from Idaho Potato for creating this unique award!

In a nutshell, Roger created this award to give to blogs he feels are making a difference in the blogosphere. He said, "We are all artists in are own way, be it art, photography, writing, philosophy, comedy, or blogging, and we all go a little crazy sometimes. But if you ever feel so crazy to cut off your ear and give it to a prostitute, "Seek Help"! Always remember you're unique. Just like everyone else." I've chosen a couple of bloggers who I think really definie what it means to be an "artist," and who I think will appreciate this odd, yet wonderful, award.

Lenox Knits : I just love this blog. I've been crocheting since college, and believe me, NONE of the afghans or scarves I've ever created have been half as gorgeous as what you'll find here. Not only are her yarn projects absolutely works of art, but her blog is informative and always interesting!
Mu-Yin Jewelry : I'm a self-described jewelry hoarder. I love all things sparkly and delightful, especially when they're made to be as unique and lovely as the creations you'll find on this blog. Her etsy shop is at the top of my "desperately want, no---NEED!" list!! Artistry at it's finest.
Thousand Word Balance : Melissa is a painter, a poet, a photographer....I think this blog is the perfect recipient for this award! Go check her out!!!

To the recipients I chose: enjoy your awards!!! Share them with as many folks as you'd like!! And have a fabulous, creative day! Till next time,
