Nominations and blogs to follow

Good afternoon fellow bloggers. I have finally decided on my list of nominees for the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award and the One Lovely Blog Award.

I would like to say that posts like this may seem a bit boring (due to the last of craft involved) but I agree with Jackie from the Knitting with Heart blog in that award posts such as this are a great way for people to find blogs that perhaps they wouldn’t have stumbled upon before. To all the nominees – do whatever you wish with the award I have given to you, some of you may love getting  awards, others may hate it. I just hope that you understand that I love to read your blog posts and I hope that by doing this then others will love your blogs too.

4: I would like to earn a living in a crafty profession.

5: I’m a worrier

6: I met my husband when we both signed up to do an outreach team to South Africa

  3. I dont suppose you could help me please, I am struggling with getting the award image to display on the sidebar of my site. I have imported the image and uploaded it onto the post ok, it’s just the sidebar I am having issues with. Thanks again.

  4. Thank you so much for the nomination! This is a first for me!!! Will enjoy looking at the other blogs that you’ve nominated and seeing what everyone is doing! 🙂

  5. Hi there Jean,
    Thank you very much for the award. I’m not sure that I can accept it as I am rubbish at doing the techy stuff of importing the picture etc. How long have I got?

    1. You don’t have to do anything with the award if you’re unsure of how to deal with it. I’ve had sent it to you so you know that someone enjoys reading your blog and hopefully you’ll get some new followers from it. Have a great weekend 🙂

      1. Thanks, I appreciate it. I knew something had been going on because I kept getting ‘pinging’ noises on my phone app yesterday!
