Denise at Couture de' Papier awarded me a Butterfly Award, for having a cool blog. Check out her yummy, delightful creations. Earlier in the month, she posted one of my favorites, about the need for making Christmas real by sharing ourselves and using a fraction of the billions of dollars spent on gifts to help the many who are going to die from lack of clean drinking water.
Lani, Leader of the 14 Secrets of a Happy Artist, a group I'm fortunate enough to belong to, an art therapist and extraordinary mixed media artist. When you visit Lani's blog, you'll find that not only is she generous about sharing her art, she regularly provides links and portions of posts that further and enhance the creative process, spirit and life in general. She promotes other people's blogs and giveaways and teaches a fabulous course on Happiness in Art, which is how I met her.
Sharon, jeweler extraordinaire from Mana Moon Studios, was kind enough to tag me with the Bloggy Goodness Award - early in December. Wow, it has been weeks though they have flown by so quickly. Sharon just received the Spreader of Love Award, how apropos. Just prior, she received the Christmas Spirit award. If you read her reasons for loving Christmas, you'll get a grand idea of why she is the recipient of so many awards.
Thanks to all of you who entrusted me with these awards and my deepest apologies for not passing them along appropriately.
