The ladies I am going to pass this award to are some of the most creative crafters in blog land. Each of them put me to shame. Yet they are friends of mine! I am so blessed to have these women in my life. They not only inspire me as far as my crafting goes, they keep me interested in continuing to craft period. I have had a really rough past year, and I have debilitating health issues I deal with daily. So posting often doesn't  happen here, yet these ladies are always here for me, even just to say hi, and leave a uplifting comment of encouragement, and care. I have never met any of them in person, but I tell you this, they are surly friends, Blends!! Please visit each of them, follow them if you do not already, and expect to be blessed by them all.

Because Karen, Amy and Susan also passed this award to me I am going to increase  the number of ladies I send this to.

To each of my Blends, you are each so special to me.  You have all touched my heart and my life in a way that has brought peace, joy, and friendship to me.  I am so happy to call you all "Blends".

I am passing this award to the following blogs:

1. Lisa at A Mermaids Crafts    Even though Lisa gave this to me, I cannot or will not leave her off my list:) Lisa is the kind of friend we all need in our lives. She is so creative and gifted and so willing to share herself. She brings such joy to me every time she comes to my blog( house) for a visit.  Her friendship is as special as her creations!  She is a wonderful person!

2. Susan at Cricut and Grasshopper     Susan is as sweet a friend as I have ever had!  She is very gifted as a crafter, and card maker. More importantly she is a loyal and truly great  friend. She has the most wonderful sense of humor! She brings laughter to my life when all seems so grim. She helps my life become "lighter".

3. Amy at Love to Crop      Amy was one of the first ladies to show me kindness and friendship and is still my friend to this day. The things Amy can do with a glass bottle is amazing! Her exploding boxes are incredible too, and her cards are wonderful. She shares her knowledge with anyone in need. She has a huge heart!

4. Karen at Kaleidoscopic Sparkles    Karen is a special  lady that seems to sense when I need a word of encouragement and she never fails to bring me up out of any funk I may be in. Her copic skills are to die for! When you visit her, take the time to always read her backstory, you will be blessed by her amazing heart.

5. Amy at Amy's Crafting Space   Amy is a special friend from almost the first day I starting blogging. I post and she is there within the hour to leave me a wonderful and encouraging comment. She too is a gifted crafter. She is very prolific, she posts her creations almost daily, lots of inspiration for all!

6. Sherrie at Sherrie Scraps with passion    Sherrie is a really talented crafter, she posts almost daily with great projects! She is also very sweet and generous with her encouraging comments. Sherrie almost always uses a cricut cut on her projects which I love. She also gives great instructions, and sizes, so we newbies can learn from her. She does great party decorations too! She can do it all:))

7. Candy at Candy's Craft Corner    Candy is another great crafter!  She makes amazing projects. She has only had her blog about a year and it is one of the most inspiring blogs out there, in my opinion. Candy is another gifted crafter that posts almost everyday with such wonderful inspiration. She is just a really sweet person. Be sure to visit her blog, you will be so happy you did.

8. Sabrina at Scrappin' with Sabrina    Sabrina once again is an awesome and talented crafter. She is also one of the sweetest people I have met here in blog land. She not only makes beautiful cards, but home deco items, party themed items, you name it and Sabrina can craft it!

I am sure many of you know these very special ladies, but if you do not, please give yourself a present and go to their blogs, and follow them.  Your life will be blessed by each of them, I promise.

Big hugs, to my "blends" here, but also to so many others I could have listed. I have a lot of very special friends here on the web.  Each so wonderful, creative, and loving women. Each I treasure!   Pam

A few new pictures of Kyce per request!

Some of my dear friends have asked about Kyce. He is getting so big!! He is an excellent eater:))) He loves to cuddle, sit on your lap, and talk or laugh with you.  He is a really good baby. Very seldom does he cry, but he does get cranky if he is hungry. He sucks his fingers! His mom sucked her thumb, I find it so sweet:)

Jacquie brought him over this afternoon so I took some pictures. He is just so darn cute!!  And his Nanny sure loves him.  In the pictures if you look over his shoulder there is a picture of the rest of my family, they had this picture taken for me as a Christmas gift.  They did it this way because my daughters are (natural) blonds, with blue eyes, and fair skin, and I am half Spanish, so this is a picture of  my Spanish family! Ha-Ha!!The grand-kids at least are darker, with brown eyes, and dark hair like their Nanny, well when I was young, my hair is gray now:)  Hope you enjoy a little piece of me.

 Hugs, Pam
