A Most Adorable Award

About a week ago, I mentioned that the ever-kind Astrid bestowed an award upon me. This is the aformentioned award –


How freaking adorable is that? I am so touched by Astrid’s thoughts of me, and I feel the same way about her and her wonderful blog.

I must now pass on the award to five bloggers – here goes:

My Handbound Books


Double Happiness

Comfortable Shoes Studio

Bored and Crafty


February Blog Dump

Since I don’t have any more new creations to show off, I thought I’d share some blogs that have been making my smile during the craziness of late:

Confessions of a Pioneer Woman – Recently came across this blog. Pioneer Woman is a city girl who fell in love with a cowboy and now lives on a ranch in the middle of nowhere. This woman has an amazing sense of humour, can tell a great story and takes breathtaking photographs.

The Pioneer Woman Cooks! – And if it wasn’t enough, her recipes (and her instructions) are to die for…

Creative Organizing – This blog pleases the anal-retentive me that is constantly re-organizing my supplies. Although you could never tell by the state of my craft room. Sigh.

iHanna – This Swedish girl is so upbeat and creative, and she’ll try just about anything crafty. I love her outlook on life, even through the difficult periods. A very colourful blog.

Toronto Craft Alert – So I can keep abreast of everything that I don’t have time to enjoy at the moment…

Of course, I read so many other blogs, but these are just a few to get you started on the path to enlightened creativity.

Do you have particular blogs you like to read when you’re tired / uninspired / grouchy? Please share!
