Awards



Coffee wasnt needed this morning. Still enjoyed but not needed. I came fully awake when I went to visit Jan this morning.Then not even a few seconds later I went to visit Freda.Wow! I totally agree you ladies inspire me everyday and so deserve this award. Then to be awarded by you also! Thank you. A great group of ladies to be included in.That is the best award of all.


Arte Y Pico Award

This lovely statue is called the “Arte y Pico” award which was created to be given to bloggers who inspire others with their creative energy and talents no matter whether it be in the form of writing, artwork, design, interesting material, or contributions to the blogger community. When a blogger receives this award it is considered a “special honor” and, once presented to you, it is to be passed on to at least 5 other bloggers who meet the criteria. ( I so totally cut and copied this, I hope thats legal!)

Now to award this to five bloggers that I am inspired by and read daily. I cant imagine starting my morning without these people. They are the first blogs I check in with. I award Jan, Freda, Heydebster,Peg, and Kay. I dont know how to do that cool link thingy but they are listed on the side of my blog. They are amazing ladies and lead such interesting fun lives. They always are the best to enjoy a good cuppa coffee with!


Now I have to show you what I bought yesterday! Swinging through the blogroll I came across Irenes post (http://sunimp07.blogspot.com/ ) on these shoes. I went to amazon and ordered them. There has been such discussion lately on what to do while quilting to ease pain and aches. I love my crocs but am still on the lookout for the perfect shoes...Could these be it? I will let you know. They sure sound like they could be. A little pricier then what I would pay for a pair of work shoes BUT if they help it will be worth it.


I also was reminded a few days ago when reading Jans post on something the Princess popped up with. I had forgotten but Jer and Ihad started a book we called Astridisms. She always pops up with some unusual stuff too. I went and found the little book and one just cracked me up. She was about 3 and we had just moved her into our house. The adoption was still another 2 years away.

The older two had put her in her car seat and were adjusting her straps. Jer and I were sitting in the front seat of my truck totally laughing as they both were arguing at how tight the straps should be so that she would be the safest. About 5 minutes into this she yells, "you people stop! these straps are to tight fix them or aint nobody in this car gonna have a little sister!" It took another 5 mintues for Jer to be able to even drive.

ROTFL I don't know if I would have made it to the back without hurting myself from laughing and moving. That is funny!!!!

And thank you!! You are VERY deserving of this award!!!!!!!!

And obviously I want to know if the shoes work for you when they arrive!! Who doesn't need comfy shoes when you are on your feet more than you are off them!

Becca you are a doll. It's fun to know you check in. Have you seen your little "dot" up there in Alaska on my Visitor Map??? Those shoes ROCK, ohhh wow I want to know where to find those. Wayy cool. I work in an art studio and have to wear closed-toed shoes all the time. Clogs are the perfect choice and those are SWEEET!!

Thanks for including me in your group of quilters. I'm an artist, but I can barely thread a needle myself. Popped buttons and frayed hems scare me!!! But oh how I do love to read about your projects and the pictures are great fun.
