Scattering Sunshine...

I hope all of you had a great Easter weekend! It has been a busy time at our house with birthday parties, Easter, family activities, and a new spring project I'll be letting you in on a little later. And...we all have a terrible case of Spring Fever, but it has been chilly! I'm hoping the week will bring some sunshine.

Speaking of sunshine, I received the sweetest message a bit ago, and because of the craziness at our house, have not been able to blog about it until now. But on a particularly gloomy day for me, my friend Belinda from Blue Ribbon Designs sent me the Sunshine Blogger Award. That sweet gesture totally brightened an otherwise dreary and sluggish day, and I am so appreciative to her for her kindness! Thank you, Belinda!

I've mentioned Belinda before, but in case you are new to my blog, you must check out her work. She is uber-talented in the field of design and creativity. Her cross-stitch designs are stunning works of art, she is a talented seamstress, and I'm so happy to know her! We have joked that if only we lived next door to each other, we would be the best of friends, and I think it may be possible that we would be hooked at the stitching elbows. She is one of those gems in life that I'm so happy to have had come my way.

So in the tradition of receiving this award, I get to pass this award along to other bloggers who inspire others with positivity and creativity. The rules for accepting the award are:

1. Put the logo on your blog or within your post.
2. Pass the award to 12 bloggers.
3. Link the nominees within your post.
4. Let them know they received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

So here are my 12 public blogger nominees in alphabetical order (only a few of many I could have chosen!). All have helped me or inspired me in some way, are creative and positive in their posting, have made me laugh out loud, or have somehow brought sunshine into my world:

1. A Little Tipsy
2. Huffaker Happenings
3. JesseKate Designs
4. Kesler Krew
5. Micki's Menagerie
6. No Telling Where We've Been
7. Pied Piper Photography
8. Rainy Day Farm
9. Sneaky Momma Blog Design
10. Susan Heim on Parenting
11. Three Pumpkins Little
12. Twin Stitchers

It's so wonderful to have so many friends in the Blogosphere! Thank you!
