Blogging Blues AND an Award to Give!

Recently I diagnosed myself (yes, I can add self proclaimed "MD" to my title now) with a case of the dreaded blahs. I don't know if it is winding down from the summer, the kids being back in school, loosing too much sleep so I could read the Twilight series, sewing orders or plain 'ole laziness.Whatever it is, I wish I could snap out of it because there isn't enough time in a day without me dragging!!!!

Anyways, two LOVELY blogging friends have given me awards. The first I will give out today and I am so embarrassed that it took me so long to do this, hopefully you will forgive me Shawnee!!! Shawnee is a fellow Apronista, teaches sewing class and is the host behind my favorite swap, the Flirty Apron Swap . I don't know how she does it all but her blog is fun to read and she puts all of us other apron makers to shame with her great designs!!!!

Okay, so here are the rules of the Brillante Award:

1. The winner can put the logo on her blog.

2. Link the person you received your award from.

3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.

4. Put links of those blogs on yours.

5. Leave a message on the blogs of the girls you’ve nominated

And the winners are......

Suzanne from Bella Boutique Creations. What can I say about Suzanne? Not only is she the most talented bag designer I have met, she makes me laugh on a regular basis and has become my rock star East Coast friend. Maybe this award will motivate her to blog A LOT more...hint...hint.....nudge...nudge......

Amy from Sassy Pink Boutique. A fellow boutique owner with yummy inedible treats for babies and winner of the 2008 Designer Chick Contest! Amy is as sweet as her creations and is full of creative fury!

Judith from My Life With Five Blessings. Talk about a woman with her priorities straight and the wonderful perspective on life. I enjoy hearing her updates about her beautiful family and she has the exact number of kids that I want to have one day.....did anyone hear that large gasp my husband just made?

Tiff from Three Peas In a Pod. Now I know I still owe you one Tiff, but I couldn't do this blog award without listing my very first blogging friend!! Tiffanie has all kinds of great tips, funny stories, recipes AND pictures of her children who have some of the most beautiful eyes I have ever seen! She also is a contributor writer on Sew For Less with a hilarious outlook on being a newbie embroiderer!

Lorri and Brooke from Z Daisy . I often think Lorri and I were separated at birth although she may not be flattered by that. Not only are these sisters the designers and inventors behind the great Z Daisy products like the Binkie Bungee but they are mom's who love to sew, create and share!

Kelsey at My Sweet Life. Okay, all you need to do is go on over and read a post and you'll understand. I always laugh at her funny recaps this one is my all time favorite...I think I laughed so hard I almost cried!

And last, but not least, Carrie over at Three-Girl Circus. It may be that her motherhood experience with three girls is so opposite from my world with three boys that it draws me in or it could be that the fun pictures of her kids having such fun always brings a smile to my face. Whatever it is, it is just a light fun blog to follow!
