I have the greatest friends!

Sharon from Ill Tempered Ink, has kindly honored me with the Renee Award along with 7 other fabulous artists. Although I do not consider myself an artist, thank you Sharon so much for the compliment.

The Renee Award was created by Bella (bellasinclair.blogspot.com) and Ces (cesandherdishes.blogspot.com) who wanted to show appreciation of the impact their friend Renee made on their lives. This award is meant, according to Bella, to be given to those that, like Renee, are like "the acorn, a small package becoming a tall and sturdy oak giving more acorns, becoming tall and sturdy oaks, giving acorns…". In Celtic mythology, the oak was the tree of doors, a gateway between worlds. I, like Sharon. quoting her here "love that I have had so many sweet people to help open the door to art and to guide me into the world of creativity! So, I am passing this on to other artists that have inspired me with their art and their kindness in my growth as a papercrafting artist."

Alpha order as I could never put these in any particular order.

All these ladies are amazing artists and wonderful people!

And Sharon Briss; you too of course! And my words could not have said it any better then you my friend so I am quoting you once again. Thank you so much!

"I hope you enjoy checking out these extraordinary artists and their amazing blogs! Of course, there are a ton more people who inspire me, support me and are just all around amazing people that make me smile everyday! The world of stamping has introduced me to so many creative and kind people there is no way to count my blessings - they are infinite!"

AND my wonderful SBS sister and friend Vanja so kindly honored me with the following.

Thank you my friend for thinking of me!
