This first one, which is really the second one, comes from Jen at Jen's Cup of Creations. The rules are that I need to choose 7 people whose blogs I adore (that's the easy part!) and then post 7 things people don't know about me. That might take a little consideration on my part. I'm generally a fairly open book.
This is going to be made slightly more difficult by the fact that at least one person to whom I would have given this has already received this award. With that said, here are my seven people.
- Tanis at Paper Princess at Play - She is Lady Talent. 'Nuff said.
- Shannon at Shannon's Sentiments - She leaves me in awe every single day. Seriously.
- Ashley at Heart Hugs Designs - This darling woman is the heart behind the EtsyInspired Challenge Team - and she does it with a 2yo and a newborn!
- Katie at Created by Katie Cotton - Just because I think she's sweet and I love the fairies.
- Lee at My Reality...It's All Good - The woman does it ALL. With smilies.
- Opal at the Akamai Knitter - You didn't think I was going to leave out my bud, did you? Check her out. She is a spinning, knitting, beading genius. And she loves cats.
- Donna at Sometimes - She is never, ever one to mince words and even when I disagree, I'm always left thinking. Plus...I swear we were sisters in another life.
Award #1 came to me a few weeks ago from Lauren at LEM Photography.
The rules for this one are:
1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.
2. Pass the award on to 15 other blogs that you've newly discovered.
I guess I can't pass it back to Lauren, eh? That's okay. There are a ton of blogs I've found recently just by virtue of either following blog candy or just links from other people's blogs.
