I've Been Awarded - Twice!

Just when I was feeling a little stressed and discouraged what should show up in my mail box? Not once, but twice, this very sweet award! I have Mellanie and Col to thank for their impeccable timing in sending it my way. Mellanie's blog is like a breath of fresh air, always a joy to visit and see what new art works she has been up to. And Col, another homeschooling mom I might add, is bursting with creative energy.

Blogging offers me many rewards that I did not expect at the outset. One of which is the opportunity to visit so many other artists, see their work, and read about their processes.
So now I get to pass this award along to blogs I love!

Jennifer Rose, with tons of spirited energy I always enjoy visiting her blog to see what's new with her wonderful art.
Rita Woodburne, another colored pencil artist, amazing talent, and visiting her blog always brightens my day.
Andrea Joseph, does amazing pen and ink drawings, along with a few other media, from her own unique point of view. She really helps me think outside the box!
Kasie Salle
, a talented artist, and mom, with a good deal of wisdom thrown in.
Nichole Caulfield,
another artist and mom, too, inspires me with her colored pencil work and her energy.
Terri, yep, a mom, homeschooling at that, and creative spirit. Terri and I have been on-line friends for quite some time now, sharing the struggles and triumphs of homeschooling our daughters as well as the challenges of pursuing our art. Check out her awesome hand made cards.
Belinda Lindhardt, a wonderfully talented artist, and mom, who very generously shares her processes along with other necessary information related to the business of being an artist. Remember when I said I finally got my image files organized? Thanks to Belinda!
Rose Welty, yes, you guessed it, an artist and mom and her blog never fails to be interesting and a thoughtful read.

So the rules are that if you get tagged (and you want to play) , write a post with links to blogs that you love, and link to this post so that folks can easily find the exact origin of the meme.

You are so sweet Ann! Thank you very much!
And here I've been so busy trying to get a piece done that I've really neglected my commenting.
I truly love your blog, your work, and your example as an artist and Mom. :)

Belinda Lindhardt said...

Thanks so much Ann, like you it came at a good time a bit of the highlight of the day actually :)

thanks again

Jennifer Rose said...

thanks Ann :D Now I need to go find some blogs I like to read besides this one and the ones you listed :)

Ann said...

You are are welcome! It is kind of fun :)
Jennifer - I know what you mean! I thought I was listing a group that didn't include anyone I had tagged just a while ago and after I had it posted realized I did repeat one. There doesn't seem to be any requirement for how many blogs you award though. Have fun!

Rose Welty said...

Thanks Ann, it's always nice to know that someone out there reads and cares!

I do appreciate it.

Terri said...
