Brillante Weblog Award : for me, for you !

A few days ago, Simone of Crafty Daisies was so very kind as to pick this blog up for a Brillante weblog award.

No time to register the information that Oge of Simply Crafty did the same !

I haven’t been part of the blog world very long, so these came as a very unexpected and all the more so happy surprise ! Thank you so much !

So, with the acceptance of this award, come a few rules :
1. Put the logo on your blog
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs
4. Add links to those blogs on yours
5. Leave a message for your nominees on their blog

Here comes the real challenge : picking up 7 blogs is quite a mind boggling exercise !

To make the selection just a tiny bit easier, I decided to limit my choice to blogs I’ve discovered within the last year and that I’ve been hooked up to since. Each in their own way have been inspiring and motivating, each has contributed to make my own crafty journey a more pleasurable and enlightening one ! I owe each of them a lot of smile, big rushes of admiration and a renewed conviction that there are wonderful people and incredible things out there !

So, as a thank you for all they’ve brought and are still bringing my way, I’d like to pass this award on to (in alphabetical order 🙂 ) :

Amber of Yellow Flower :      A very talented, high-skilled beader from New Orleans. The quality of her beadwoven pieces is outstanding, and the passion she puts in her work very inspiring. The art policy that shows through her posts calls for respect.

Bejeweled of Jeweled Elegance Here is a blog with a deliciously feminine feel to it ! Small accessories, pictures and prints, all combined in a very soft boudoir-like atmosphere. The tone is so fresh and happy you just want to come back !

Felicity of All Things Bright and Beautiful Color and beautiful things lovers,  this blog calls for a little visit. I especially like to go there when I feel stuck in one of those creative ruts, when I feel I need a fresh intake of something new and beautiful, be it interior decor, photographs or accessories. The interviews are very interesting too.

Frany of Les Perles de Frany A beader from France, her blog features wonderful beaded flowers necklaces and other beautiful beadwoven work. Her creations are breathtaking.

Josie of Mr Monkeysuit A mother of two who has a thing for everything crafty and conveys it in a very pleasant way. Sweet photos and nice projects, I can’t get enough !

Melissa of Yummy goods Melissa Averinos is a designer whose first fabric line (for Free Spirit) is soon going to be available. Her blog is filled with beautiful pictures and her honest tone makes it a pleasure to read !

Smadar of Smadar’s Treasure A beader from Israel. Her blog features her original yet wearable quality beadwoven jewelry. Her desire to improve is a constant element and it is very motivating and interesting to follow her through her beading journey.

I could keep on about these ladies, but the best is for you to go and pay them a little visit. They’re all worth the while !

Have a beautiful day !
