Wow, what can I say...

This week much like last week still has me struggling with the "super bug" I picked up somewhere along the way.  But in my delirium and my thinking - is there a point, the point came home in three glorious ways. First I was the lucky winner of earrings made by Shai Williams, way to make me see a light at the end of the tunnel Shai,

then if that wasn't enough I was again lucky enough to be the winner of a bracelet made by Nancy Peterson, super duper made my day, oh I can't wait to be wearing this...

I then can you believe it I was awarded the "Newbie Award" by Bobbie. I feel incredibly humbled and oh so lucky and oh so much better. Thank you to all my new blog friends for making my day, my week, my month.

 My choices for these categories are as follows:

Jean A Wells Handcrafted Artisan
I love everything Jean does and constantly go to her blog for inspiration and just to view the eye candy. Jean offered me sage advice once that I will always appreciate .... when I was trying to come up with name for my Etsy Store, Jean said "just use your name, you can never go wrong with that". My problem was instantly solved and I have never looked back. Thank you Jean.

Nancy  and Amy both get my vote
I love what Nancy creates and find her tutorials informative and easy to follow. Amy is so much fun and always includes a pattern on her blog. Her Summer Lovin' challenge was my first challenge and one of the most enjoyable experiences I have had. Thank you both!

 Sarah from Saturday Sequins
Sarah is fantastic and I could actually give her all the categories. I feel Sarah and I have become good friends. She always has good advice and supplies incredible links with almost every post. She is in everyone's corner and has a way of making them/you feel so good. She is uplifting and I look forward to reading her blog, and usually more than once. Thank you for being you Sarah, you rock!

Rosemarie is an artist,a photographer and a friend and does exceptional work in both fields. Her blog itself is a piece of art and worth the experience of visiting.

And last but not least

Leanne Loftus is a new blogger but has already made an impression. She is my partner in the Holiday Bling Blog Hop and I am excited to see what she has created. Her pieces from the Challenge of Travel Blog Hop were exceptional and worth taking a look see.
