Happy Easter, everyone. I don’t celebrate the religious aspects of this holiday myself, but always enjoy it as a celebration of Springtime and renewal. (Which makes this morning’s soggy weather a little ironic – did I mention the joys of March in the Northwest?)
Anyway, Alice, who is a rock star to me, gave me a You Made My Day Award a while back. It was an honor to receive it from someone whose blog always makes my day. So today seems like a nice day to pass the award on to some individuals who consistently renew my enthusiasm for crafting….
Rachel, who not only writes a great blog, but is my Google Reader buddy. If you use Google Reader, you should try adding some Friends and sharing interesting tidbits with them. I have a little Rachel folder in my reader, and she slips the most fabulous things in there all the time, just like magic!
Cathy, who’s blog always makes my little 60′s-and-70′s heart sing.
Hanna, who is a true creative explorer. Her blog embraces such a wide range of creativity, it always helps me think differently about making things.
Kristin, who does amazing things with leftover materials, and manages so many creative endeavors simultaneously.
Lisa, who writes in a chatty, wacky tone that always cheers me up.
Meggiecat, who is an incredible sleuth of creative culture. Just when I’m starting to feel like I’m seeing the same things referenced on every blog in the world, she comes along with something brand-new and revolutionary.
Chris, who has made me spit my tea out laughing on more than one occasion. Chris, where can I send those dry cleaning bills, again?
Martha . . . okay, okay. I know that this is akin to giving God an “atta boy,” but here’s the thing: I love her personal blog. She writes and shares photos of the day-to-day of her life and the people and animals in it, and it’s just fascinating. Reading her posts, I begin to feel her as a person rather than a myth.
Anyway, thank you all! I’m blowing you a big kiss today.
