Nice Matters

I do have projects to blog about but I haven't taken the time in the evenings to take the pictures, post the pictures, etc. Maybe tonight while I'm watching the Dancing with the Stars finale [Note to Marie: Yeah, we get it. You're almost 50. You've whipped yourself into shape. You're doing a great job for someone of our age (well, she IS actually a bit older than me... ahem). But you need to learn how to accept criticism.]

So I digress.... I recently received a very sweet note from Cathy, who has a blog full of awesome knitting projects and INCREDIBLE photography, telling me she nominated me for a "Nice Matters Award," which is awarded to:

Those bloggers who are nice people; good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration.
Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world. ”


How cool is that?!!! I haven't felt all that nice or positive over these last few weeks so it was especially sweet that Cathy took the time to make me feel good - no wonder she is also a recipient of this award!!

I am supposed to identify seven other bloggers who should receive this award. Holy Mackerel.... Only seven???? I have met so many nice bloggers it will be hard to narrow it down.

Ok.... here goes....

Allison
Autum
Debbie
Gaylen
Janice
Marcia
Nancy
Tonya
OH!!! I can't forget my sewing twin (we always end up sewing the same things without planning it!)
Lori
(So I can't countl... sue me!)

All of you gals are very special to me for lots of different reasons but the reason I've nominated all of you for this award is because each of you have always been so darn nice to me and I really appreciate it. Especially lately! Cathy, I would nominate you, too, if I could!

BTW, along the same line, Sheri over at Loopy Ewe is encouraging random acts of kindness. (Her example reminds me of the commercial in which the woman at the dry cleaner drive-thru window pays for some shirts for the HOT guy behind her. Ok, not exactly altruistic motives for that one as she also included her phone number, but still....) Spread the NICE!!

Thank you so much! Nice is as nice does -- isn't that what Forest Gump said?? But anyhow, you are the best!
