So Sweet!

So sweet! Jenny of All Roads Lead Home was kind enough to bestow me with my first blog award! The award is for blogs with "Great Attitude or Gratitude" and she wrote the most lovely and kind words about me and my blog. (This is where I blush and get all bashful!) ;)

As part of receiving the award, I'm to nominate 10 other blogs for the same award (I'm still new at this, so I don't exactly know 10 different bloggers well enough...yet!!). Well, I'm going to do a tag-back and nominate the sweet and talented Jenny herself! Her blog is so full of life and love and kindness and joy! When I visit, I feel right at home. She invites you in, gives you a cup of cocoa (or lemonade, if it's summer) and before you know it, you're chatting and telling stories and making art! Her art is so heartfelt and endearing and reading her posts is like chatting with an old friend. She has a great, down-to-earth attitude and her artful journey is one of gratitude for the delicate details in life. Thanks for the inspiration and joy, Jenny!

Another blog I'd like to award belongs to the talented and spunky Catherine Witherell of Happy Day Art! Her blog invokes the spirit of this award and she certainly has a great attitude! Her blog is a mix of personal snapshots of her artful life and of her exquisite jewelry. She wears many creative hats and it is always a pleasure to read her blog and follow her on her many artisitc adventures! Her blog also inhabits the spirit of gratitude--being grateful for a life full of art!

If you'd like to participate in giving this award, simply do the following:

1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate blogs which show GREAT ATTITUDE &/or GRATITUDE!
3. Be sure to link your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love & link to this post & to the person from who you received your award.


  1. Oh Nicole! I am speechless! Thank you so much for this award and your generous words. That is the nicest thing I have ever read.

    I am looking forward to seeing you at Artfest AND finishing the production of this epic zine. Only a few short weeks left until I am almost sure it will be done.

    Thank you for this award and I will get to it soon but I have to go back to work now. I was feeling like someone was calling me and so I checked my emails and voila! You were there. I love it!


  2. Nika! Congratulations on the blog award!
    You totally deserve it! I LOVE your color pages! You are so #!*&*in talented! Ahhh and Maya lou too! I am stunned by the beauty. You should make art all day long and do nothing else. I'm so lucky to have you as a friend!
