You make my day!

I can’t do it! Sweet Katrine of Kandi-blog awarded me the You Make My Day award. It's lovely to know that someone (...anyone!) is logging on and checking out what I have to show or say. I recommend her blog and shop, her prints are really etherial and quirky, she's a talent.

So, I tried and I tried and I couldn’t whittle down my list to 5…I could do about 7 or I could do just 1 so I thought I would just do 1 as that was obvious to me:

Dottie Angel
If she doesn’t post, I don’t get out of bed in the morning…what’s the point? (Yes I stayed in bed all week last week and I'm about to stay in bed till the 3rd March as she is taking a blog break!) She’s a hoot, very talented and great cyber pal. Tif, you make my day!

These others were on my shortlist:

Skinny LaMinx - such a doll and an amazing designer.
Sissi Minanaa – lovely visuals.
HappySilly – quirky and sweet and doesn’t know how good she is (and teaching me Swedish – puss och kram!).
Paperiaarre – great bookmaker, lovely lady.
A Cup of Joe – a new discovery. I need to move her from my ‘blogs’ folder to my ‘favourite blogs’ folder immediately.
So-Sage – They don’t post often but when they do…
Bloesem – ‘nuff said.
Essimar – wonderful shop too.
Fine little day - so stylish it hurts.
Camilla Engman – say no more.
Blu-shed – an etsy dynamo and a funny lady.
What’s blogging my view - I seethe with envy when she post pics of her ceramic collection and she's a great cyber pal.
Kris’s Color-stripes – addictive!
66 Stitches – she got me into this mess, she’s so talented and if she doesn’t open a shop and start selling her creations, P and I are going to do it for her!

You see what I mean. I have 28 blogs in my 'favourites' folder and 59 in my ‘blogs’ folder. It’s not easy!
