1) There are some wonderful people out there and some I may never get to meet, but "WoW," you are amazing! Someone once explained "blogger etiquette," because when I first started blogging and someone would comment, I would comment back on my own blog! Oh the days of stupidity! Yes, I figured most of it out on my own, but both Lynn Stevens and Lisa Somerville sure made it easier. From the beginning these two incredible and busy artists have always taken the time to comment and encouraged me to be more and do more, even before blogging, as a Technique Junkie! So I have a "die" with your name on it. Will you send me a PM and give me a preference or first come, first serve??? Hopefully Lynn and Lisa, you don't already have these! Thank you again for helping me out and being there from day one!
Linda of Studio L3. What a journey it has been! I wonder how many of us have been at it since week #1?? Through blogging, I got on my first Design Team at Scrolls Work Stamps and made some wonderful friends. This last year, I was a Guest Designer and awarded a few Ginger Gems at Gingersnap Creations, a featured artist by Cindy Adkins, a top three at Simon Says Stamp and Show, Guest Designer for Scrap-Mart, caught Red Handed by Rogue Redhead Designs and awarded the very first Bella du Jour at Bella Creations. I have received some lovely "Blog Awards" from some wonderful crafters and blogger friends. I so appreciate your thinking of me and take it as an honor, but I found it impossible to pass on, because there are too many wonderful bloggers to choose from and no way for me to decide. To me you are all beautiful, have attitude with great style!
