Wow ! That is a lot of posts in a year and a half, isn't it ?
I really can't imagine my life without my blog anymore. I would miss it and my Blogland friends too much to ever quit, I think. I get so many rewards from it, both from the connection to others that I love and appreciate so much, and also from the chance to express myself, putting little pieces of me out there in the shiny light. It is a sweet thing, this blogging world.
I am not going to do a giveaway or anything this time...seems like I just slowly and gratefully walked by that cool milestone on my own some how. Here's to the next 200 Queen of Arts posts ! :)
Speaking of the wonderful connections I have in Blogland, my lovely friend Lesley at the Funky Art Queen, honored me with the Queen of All Things Awe-Summm award on her blog yesterday. I love that one Queen passed the award on to another ! I am also very touched that Lesley considers me a "faithful and every present blog friend", something that I definitely strive for in Blogland everyday. Such perfect Blogland Love !
There are always rules for these awards, which of course, I am going to use as guidelines instead! ;)
~ List 7 things that make me awe-summm~ Pass the award onto 7 bloggers (I am choosing one special person to shine the awesumm light on today instead of 7)~ Tag those bloggers to let them know they are now Queens too (and link back to the Queen who tagged you)
Here are my 7 things that make me awe-summm :
1. I am really good at Loving
2. I have an artist's eye.
3. I love to laugh.
4. I keep on trying...
5. I encourage others by letting them know I really see them.
6. I see the beauty all around me.
7. I am open
Hey, you know that after writing this list of 7 things, I think the real award is taking the time to do a little loving on yourself ! ;) Feels pretty good.
So now I have to choose someone to shine some light on today. We all deserve this, everyday, but I think it is kind of fun to give a little extra light once in a while so I am going to choose...
Genie Sea at Reality Insanity as the next Queen of All Thing Awe-summ !
Genie is feisty. She is strong. She is a wonderful dreamer. She is a cheerleader for the under and over dogs. And every Monday, Miss Genie dances her heart out ! She inspires me and all her readers to love their awesumm selves. You, Miss Genie, are a Queen ! Consider yourself Crowned !
(as the applause for Genie die down, here are a couple of shots of the new hairdo. It is still raining here, so they are taken by the window in my studio. Sorry for the blur ...)
Okay, so maybe I don't look like a boy after all...;)
Happy Thursday, you Awesumm Blogland friends !
