I'd Like To Thank The Academy...

Well....Okay...Maybe I am exaggerating a tad bit, but when I got this award I was thrilled! It's my very first one and I am honored to be chosen to receive it. Many thanks to Gloria for thinking of me. I am having so much fun with blogging. What started out as a way to connect with all of you talented women - so I could glean some knowledge from you, has led me also to making new friends along the way! I am thrilled to have this opportunity to get to know all of you out in blogland. If you stop by, please take the time to say hi - I love hearing from you!

I would like to pass this award along to two of my favorite bloggers. These ladies are so inspirational and full of talent. I am in awe of the creativity that seems to effortlessly flow from both of them. Please take the time to check them out - you won't be disappointed!

Joy of JOYS OF HOME - This talented gal will help you get your creative juices flowing - and make you anxious to grab a spray paint can.
Deb of Homespun Living - This very talented lady is always busy creating something. I am amazed at what she is able to accomplish in a day!

Imagine my surprise as I also received this fun award from Ann a few days later:
Wow! I should have made this smaller - can some one please help me with my uploading - I have tried to make this post twice now. I know there should be an easier way of doing this. When I went to get this award from Gloria's site, It was too big to put in my post - the only way I could think of to upload it and make it smaller, was to copy it to my photobucket page and then resize it from there. Is there an easier way? Obviously I am still learning my way around my computer - where is my son when I need him? :) The butterfly award was smaller so I didn't have a problem with that one. I also would love some help learning how to put these on my sidebar. I can't wait until this becomes second nature - I am a quick study, but I have never done this before. Thanks in advance for your help.

Anyway, Ann - thank you so much for thinking of me. It was very sweet of you! As Gloria said in her post about this award - this award goes out to all of my new friends. Take it and enjoy it as I am going to.
Blessings to you,

I was going to suggest asking Gloria, but I see she has already come to the rescue, She's got the blogging tiger by the tail.

Since Gloria said the "smiley" was for all her blogging friends, I included myself, and saved the smiley to my Picture folder. I'm hoping that was alright. I'm confessing to my larceny anyway. They say confession is good for the soul and mine is "smiling" right now and has an unexpected desire to "hug".

Congrats on both awards. They couldn't have gone to a nicer blogger or come from a better one.
