Awards & New Art

Apparently I am loved this week. Wanna know how I know? I have had 17 posts on my dog post alone. No art involved! Just comments on my goofy dog. Believe me, it was mucho appreciated! (actually this might mean my DOG is loved and not me, but why split hairs? Hmm?) Also, I rec'd the same Brillante Weblog award from 3 different people; Trisha, Kersten and Lily! Now how's that for some love?!

1) Put the logo on your blog.
2) Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4) Add links to those blogs on yours.
5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs

In keeping with the blog award rules I'm posting a list of 7 blogs I love:
(Just to clarify, It's so hard to pick, so these are just several from my list of 100's I visit. I didn't re-award people who awarded me, or people I know that they had awarded. That would be redundant, now wouldn't?!)

1 - Thrifty Collage Artist
2 - A Fanciful Twist
3 - Sandra Evertson
4 - E. Beck Artist
5 - Naughty Secretary Club
6 - Land of Lost Luggage
7 - Beate Knappe

ADDED: Before this post went 'to print' I found out that another friend had given me a new award. A BFF, or 'Blogging Friends Forever' award. Boy! It must be my lucky month! Rhonda on her blog said this about me, "Her stuff is so unique and artistic!! You never know what wonderful piece she is going to create next!" Wasn't that so sweet of her? I love Rhonda.

The rules are:
1. Only five people allowed
2. 4 of them have to be dedicated followers of your blog and 1 has to be new and live in another part of the world. ** Not sure if I have 4 dedicated followers but I'm gonna wing it. ** The '1 new', I took that to mean not a follower, but a new blog to visit.
3. You have to link back to who gave you the award. **Rhonda gave me this esteemed award. Thanks! **

If you think its too cheesy or corny, you don't have to play along.

Okay, here goes:
1 - The Artistic Diva
2 - Altered Gypsy
3 - Angela Harris
4 - Paula's Palace of AltAred Art
5 - (New) Paper Artsy in the UK

Yes, I am still working in the art journal, although its been a slow week. Last week I managed to complete 2 more pages in the book. Sorry about the flashes on the pics. They were taken indoors. It's 100 degrees out! I might melt before the pictures ever were taken!

Thanks!!! I just posted my "win" a while ago. I will complete the "steps" to listing others in a day or so--your link is already on m blog roll, so that's already been done:)
I sold my house yesterday, and the new owners will take possession in three weeks. As a teacher, this is the busiest time of year for me, so I'm trying to get my classroom set up, panicking over the packing that I need to start here at home, and not sure how I'll actually move my house the week that school actually starts! Good grief. I think I'll go have a nervous breakdown--oh wait, there is no time for that now!

I love your journal pages! These look like so much fun. I keep telling myself that I need to start myself one, but that's about as far as it gets. I wouldn't have the foggiest notion of what to write about!
