Recently Sue Oâ€™Kieffe of Sacred Circle Mandalas surprised me by honoring me with this very special award, You Make My Day. And Kris Cahill of Art & Clairvoyance also gave me this special award. Given that I want to inspire and uplift people, this award delights me!
Perhaps now is the time to ask the question. I know I mention my health a lot but don’t say much. Given I am in business – an artist wanting to support myself from my artwork, I have been hesitant to say very much. But in comments and in other places I have said quite a bit at this point. I have decided that if you do want to know more, I will share it. So please let me know.
What a special award … what a wonderful thing to say to anyone – You Make My Day! There are so many different ways that many of You Make My Day. I will tell you some of the people I would have given the award to but they have already been given this pleasure. To start, Sue and Kris who gave me the award in the first place. Neda, Chris, Bobbie, Debi, John, Lisa, Irene, and Creative Every Day. The Blogosphere is wonderful in the way it allows incredible connections!!

So here are the rules: â€œGive the award to up to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel so happy about blogland! Beware! You may get the award several times!â€
Gale Rainwater Photography is a blog I have recently discovered. The breathtaking photos he posts inspires me to the max! I also appreciate the way he has been commenting and participating in our little community. Gale, You Make My Day!
Staci Rose is an artist I met through Worldwide Women Artist Online. She has been very kind to me and helped my learn the ropes in the social networking arena. Staci is also another Etsy seller. Here is her blog. She has also been featured a lot lately at Etsy which inspires me. Staci, You Make My Day!
Kara Jones is an artist whose blog I stumbled across. I am totally taken with some of her work. I plan to feature her (with her permission – I have it) in a bit. She is also a great example for me as she is dealing with her life’s difficulties. I am glad I am getting to know her! Kara, You Make My Day!
Jean Levert Hood is an artist I have met somewhat recently through a variety of artist connections. I have been delighted that Jean has been commenting here regularly … it is a nice bridge for me and she has been very supportive! Jean’s work is beautiful and inspiring!! Jean, You Make My Day!
Julie has a blog where she has been telling us about her move, life and art. Julie was incredibly kind and generous to me last October (or September) as I entered my first contest – for the World Card Making Day. She took me under her wind and answered endless questions and was very kind! She has interesting journal entries most days. Julie, You Make My Day!
Frances is mostly taking a break at the moment … from her blog … but lucky for us she stops by the blogosphere sometimes to say hi. She is a master at finding fun resources on the web!! She is always coming up with some new fun, charitable and/or useful thing. Frances, You Make My Day!
Bev has a blog where she posts fun photos and stories about her life in England. I love learning about the different textures there. But even more … she has this great analysis, thoughtfulness, insight and perceptions that she spreads throughout the blogosphere in the comments she makes. Beverly, You Make My Day!
Rima hasn’t been posting so much lately … but she is a great go getter in inspiring people to play to together!! Rima issues challenges for anyone to participate in. She is also generous in teaching her skills. Rima, You Make My Day!
Susan Elkin Photography hasn’t been posting much lately … but I live with her and each day she impacts me more than anyone else – of course. I do hope she starts to post again, but I know the things she is struggling with. Offline, Susan, You Make My Day!
This was harder than I thought … I would still want to award Lisa Call, Robert (I will introduce you to him soon), Collin, Elis, Nicola, Nicole, Joy, Elis, Dera Ann, Ellie, Monica, Pandi, Tom and more … but I have spent almost all morning on this so cannot keep going. But please know you were thought about!! Thank YOU for Making My Day!!!!
