So, I’ve checked out some other blogs who have this nomination/award, and as far as I can tell the “rules” are pretty simple for this one:
1) Thank the person who nominated you (done).
2) Let people know who it was (here is her nomination post and wonderful blog: http://shutupandcreatesomething.wordpress.com/2013/09/03/versatile-blogger-wordpress-family-awards/)
3) And pass the nomination along to 10 other WordPress blogs. For folks that are nominated, feel free to grab the badge from my side-bar (or anywhere else you find it) if you want to post it or pass along the nominations to some of your favorite bloggers (that’s what it’s all about, after all, “spreading the love”). So, here’s my list (in order of most to least recent of when I first happened upon them):
http://hippiehauswife.com/– I love, love, love her recent post of a redo of an armoire-kind-of-think (but with drawers) for her girl. It looks fabulous. And I also love that she’s coming around on the whole distressing thing- recent converts always make the coolest stuff.
http://serialwoman.wordpress.com/– She hasn’t posted in a while, but I found her blog recently and have been loving it. I hope she comes back!
http://linhaiwen.wordpress.com/– “Cardboard Robots!” (need I say more?)
http://kerrybest.com/– She does really neat stuff with beads and polymer clay and isn’t afraid to try new stuff out.
http://knotsewnormal.wordpress.com– Knitting, cute kids, and pie… what could be better?
http://margobreen.wordpress.com– I love reading this woman’s stories. So much I can relate to and so fun to read.
http://creativelycurious.wordpress.com– She has a couple blogs that I’ve found recently and love. This first one is frugal, creative ideas and the other one is all about adorable little polymer clay charms: http://charminglittletrinkets.wordpress.com/ (a 2 for 1 nomination!)
and, last but not least, http://theinboxjaunt.com/– Her posts about quilting make it look so easy but she does amazing stuff (that is clearly not easy at all!)
So… there you have it. I hope you enjoy checking out some of these blogs and I’ve had a wonderful time spreading the love.
Oh, and here’s another photo I took:
