Three Blog Awards - wow do I feel loved!

The lovely Jasmine over at Jazzy Stamper left this blog award for me just before I went off camping. It was such an honour and it also gave me the chance to check out Jasmine's work - another talented Aussie lady you should check out! My plan was to use some of my time away to decide who to pass it on to - there are soooo many lovely and talented people out there it's NOT an easy decision to make. Needless to say I didn't make ANY decision while I was away as my laptop was left at home as we had no internet access where we were going - aaagh. I've decided to stick with Aussie bloggers for this one - sorry you out of towners!!
Here are the rules for the award:
1. The winner gets to put the logo on their blog.
2. Put a link to the person who sent you the award.
3. Nominate 5 blogs for the award.
Here are the 5 that I nominate for this Kreativ Award - for a variety of reasons but mainly because I love what they do and who they are!

I came home today from a wonderful week of camping near the beach to find that the wonderful Michelle at Stamp and Smile had kindly awarded me this blog award - wow it's great to know that someone I admire so much holds me in this regard. I have decided to be a little bit of a cheat on this one - it goes to all the recipients of the other 2 awards on this post! These blogs have become favourites because I feel a connection to the bloggers as well as an appreciation of their talents. Blogging has become such a big part of the Stampin Up community and my life, and I feel the shared interest in these wonderful products has added benefits I hadn't dreamed of. I know there are many more talented bloggers out there - and I'm in awe of all of you. It's not always easy to "put yourself out there" ....but it's a lot of fun!!!!!

I just love the idea for this award - and have become good cyberfriends with the lovely Kellie Winnell who passed it on to me. She is a fun lovin' lady whom I can't wait to meet for real.

"This is called The Proximity Award. These blogs believe and invest in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers, who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their awards”.

These lovely bloggers not only inspire me but are very generous with sharing their talent and work - and I'm feeling that many of them are becoming good cyber buddies too - it's amazing what a little comment on a blog can lead too. If you haven't checked them out - DO SO!!!!

Congrats on the awards, Debbie. You definitely deserve them all! And you're right about the specialness (is that a word?) of bloggers who are truly friendly people. The few I've "met," like yourself, warm my heart. Michelle is certainly one of the best!

Robyn said...

Thank you so much Debbie!! It's great fun just to be "blogging"- but having people recognise your attempts as worthwhile is even better!! The stamping community is full of such lovely,supportive,
kind people - There just does not seem to be much of that out in the "real" world- I just can't get enough of it and I am glad I met you through my involvement with it!!
