Sunshine Award!

A sincere "thank you" to Elaine of ChatElaine Jewellery  for this bright little ray of light just as we are beginning to get buried in another snowfall! Couldn't have come at a better time.

I first fell in love with Elaine's gorgeous lampwork beads when she entered the Wonderland challenge at Inspiration Avenue. I just love this red and white bead!

She has many more examples of her wonderful creativity. Visit her blog and Etsy shop to see what she does with fire and glass, as well as the beautiful jewelry she makes!

So the rules for accepting the Sunshine award are

~ Put the logo on your blog or within your post  
~ Pass the award onto 12 bloggers ~  
~ Link the nominees within your post ~ 
~ Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog. 
~ Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

Alright ~ It's an extremely tough choice, but here is a mix of new blogland friends and some favorites whose blogs (and shops) are pretty special!  So, in random order they are:

ARTic Blonde Creations
Eco-Friendly Freckles
Art and Inspirations
Priti Studio
The Lavender Daisy
Maryjanes and Galoshes
Pics by Shel
Art Happens
Ambient Girl Designs
Artistic Accents by Darla

Be sure to visit the blogs and shops of these talented and creative artists. They will all brighten your day!

And thanks again to Elaine for giving me this award!
