Spreader of Love
As this is my first blog award for this blog (I also have kept another general purpose blog for years) I'm honored and thrilled to pass along the award. As Dave mentioned in his post, some of these folk have Twitter accounts and I discovered them via Twitter.
A condition of the award is that you go on to recognize 5 more people, who brighten your own blog, so here are my choices
- Because of her supportive and informative comments: Tish from Just A Tish Designs
- Because I just love the name "SmuTopia" and her breezy writing style: Jessica from SmuTopia
- Another supportive person, with a fun sense of humor: Bev from Bev's Jewelry
- For her joy and enthusiasm on every post: Lisa at A Bead A Day
- Because it's a joy to see her beautiful work, beautifully photographed Thyme2Dream
The Love Blog, by Vancouver Blogger Barbara Doduk, says about this award:
The Love Blog
I great way to spread love and happiness around the blog world and just maybe get a little link love in return.
So here is my Badge for my Award:
All I ask in return for presenting this award to anyone blogging out there, is that you include the following information in the blog post along with the image below:
This blog has been awarded The Spreader of Love Award created by The Love Blog (http://iamlove.blogspot.com), for an outstanding demonstration of blogging love.
Nominate as many or as few as you feel you need to !
And she provides some html code, too. Along the way, some 'rules' got appended - link to the blog that awarded it to you, nominate 5 blogs, link to them, and leave your nominees a message about the award. I'm happy to pass those along as well.
Now it's back to work - the toughest thing for me is deciding how to price my work. I haven't come up with a formula yet, but it's more than just cost of materials + labor + a markup = price, unless "labor" includes all the time spent shopping for the materials, deciding which to buy, & the time it takes to get through the whole designing process - and then, what's the value of inspiration, artistic touches, uniqueness? Ah well - I guess I'll give it my best shot and see what happens this weekend!
