One Lovely Blog Award

Kelley of Kelley Livingston and Tracey of TKdesigns4U-Nature Inspired have each given me the One Lovely Blog Award. I'm honored to have been chosen by each of them--on the same day, no less!--and am happily passing the torch on to other deserving artists whose work I admire and whose blogs I like to follow!

First, though, let me just say that each of these ladies who so kindly chose me are outstanding artists themselves, as well as being supportive and generous online friends of mine. Kelley is a versatile artist with a diverse shop filled with handmade jewelry, cards, paintings, and bags, many of which are created using recycled and reclaimed products. She supports animal related charities through sales from her shop.

Tracey has a variety of items in her shop, as well, creating beautiful jewelry, mosaic and mixed-media boxes, and even a bird house. Her art is inspired by nature and she enjoys working with a variety of materials.

Now it's my turn to pass it on...

Here are the rules:
*Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.
*Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered.
*Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

Below are the 15 blogs that have received the award from me. All are great sites and talented artists. Please visit their sites and shops and show them some love!
