An Award!!!

Tracey at ozcountryquiltingmum nominated me for the "You Make My Day" award!!!!!!!!! I loves me some awards people and knowing I make someones day is the icing on the cake!!! The rules are thus (don't I sound smart!!) You think about someone who makes your day out there in blogland. No more then 10 now! You post them on your blog with their address so that other people can go and check them out. You also write to those you have nominated so that they know they are loved and appreciated. I loves me some loving and appreciating!!! heehee Okay, now for the hard part. My own nominees. (is that a word??) Every day I like to get up early, grab some coffee, head for the computer room and read my blogs. I have a couple of favorites. These people make me smile. They make me laugh out loud. They've even made me tear up a time or two. I've thought about it for two days and here are my favorites.....

First up: Tracey over at
She's a wonderful mother living an extremely interesting life on a farm in Australia. She makes me laugh out loud and I go over her way every morning. :) Love ya Tracey!!

Then there is my Bec. She is an inspiration to mothers everywhere. I have been blessed to have had her in my life for 4 years now. She is worth a peek just to see her cute kids! To see her go to

Next in line is our very own Walker Jen at she is right now, this very minute building an empire on Etsy. She is a mom, designer, quilter and a scrapbooker. No one can put colors together like her. She has promised me a job when she hits the big time. She totally understands that Mon, Tues, Thurs and Fridays are not good for me work wise. I have things to do, people to see, places to go. The weekends are family time so that's out. Weds is good but only from 9-11 as I have my afternoon nap to think of. It's good to have friends in high places!!! heehee

Then there is Judy over at I go over there to drool over her quilts. Not only can she quilt like no-one's business but she is an author of quilt books as well and AND she is a mom! She does all these things with great wit and style. Go check her won't be sorry!! is a wonderful blog. I do warn you though, bring some tissues. Her little girl had open heart surgery. Can you even imagine??????! Her little one made it through just fine, thank goodness!! It's a great story!!! Now this sweet lady, after raising a couple of kids, found her real one true love and they had them some triplets!!!! hahahahaha Love it! She writes about her every day life that is just sooooo not every day! Her three blessings are growing up and keeping her on her toes. She's hysterical!!!

Okay, my final one is Pam at When you go to say hi to her she has moved but for some reason my computer wouldn't let me cut and paste her blog address but check her out!!! She is one of the kindest people you will ever have the pleasure of knowing. She makes me laugh and I read her a lot. Hi Pam!!!

whew! Okay, now if you've been nominated spread the love!!! Nominate some of your own favorites and let them know you like really like them!!!

A special thanks goes out to Tracey!!!! thanks for thinking of me!
