So, I don’t really have a project to share tonight (but I’ll try to find a cool photo for the end of the post). But, I do have some super cool things to share. First, “I made top 3” at the Shopping our Stash challenge. I have to admit, the challenge was kind of made for me. It was using “hardware” in a card- and I LOVE my hardware collection (they, I think, had slightly more refined crafting-specific hardware in mind but seemed to appreciate my literal interpretation). Here’s the announcement post: http://shoppingourstash.blogspot.ca/2013/08/saturday-shoutout_31.html. I submitted an anniversary card I made for my wife. (Maybe I don’t have to spend as much on a gift now that her card has won an AWARD!) Now I just have to figure out how to put my prize badge on my sidebar (I seem to have to figure it out from scratch every time). Isn’t it perty???
The other super cool new news is that I was nominated for more blogger awards: The Versatile Blogger Award (which I’ve gotten before but one can never have too many nominations) and the WordPress Family Award (which is a new one for me). Here’s her post (which puts me in some pretty awesome company, judging by her other nominees): http://shutupandcreatesomething.wordpress.com/2013/09/03/versatile-blogger-wordpress-family-awards/ The nominations came from a super cool blogger that I recently started following: Krissy from “Shut Up and Create Something”. She has some great art journal spreads, full of color and collage, and just a genuinely fun and unique aesthetic (case in point: http://shutupandcreatesomething.wordpress.com/2013/07/11/hamster-in-a-reptar-wagon/) Plus, I think she has possibly the best name for a blog EVER! So, here’s my newest badge (which I’ll also have to figure out how to put on my sidebar).
So thanks, everyone! What a great day!!
