The Sunshine Blog Award

I have not received a blog award in probably over a year now lol. So I was utterly surprised to get one the other day! I do not think that blog awards are silly at all ... some one is taking a moment out of their life to connect with you and say that they hear what you are saying, might even agree with it, and better yet might like it! lol That is awesome! So without further ado here is the award and info and the amazing bloggers I have passed it on to!

Annette from Mommy Spirit has given me the Sunshine Award! Thank you so much!!! “The Sunshine Award is awarded to bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspire others in the blogging world.”

Here are the rules…

1. Put the award on your blog and/or within your post.

2. Pass the award on to twelve bloggers.

3. Link to the nominees within your post.

4. Let them know they received this award by commenting on their blog.

5. Share the love and the link to the person from whom you received this award.

Thank you again, Annette! :)

So without further ado, here are 12 blogs that I constantly stalk...errr.... read. You totally should see my craft bookmark folder on is insanely long, I am really thinking I need to back it up!

1. Snap, Edit, Scrap .... yep she is my sister and she is damn talented! Check her out!

2. Ruffles and Stuff ... if you do not know who Disney is, PUH-lease come out from under your rock and check her out. She is so disgustingly creative! Plus she has tuts for us newbies that even I can understand. My 12 yr old is totally enamored with her as well!

3. We Don't Have It All Together ... Danielle's blog is a new blog that I follow, and she already has this award anyway, but I have to include her. I really love the fact that she can be open and honest with her readers...I mean just the title says it all. I just felt a kindred connection, and am enjoying the blog a lot.

4. The Idea Room ... so yea Amy probably has no idea who I am, the fact that I read her blog, has no time to worry about blog awards, and/or already has twelve of these lol. I always feel awkward naming the BIG BLOGGERS *echo echo* but I simply am amazed at this site and appreciate all the awesome posts!

5. Someday Crafts ... yep another biggie, but ooooh so good!

6. Smashed Peas and Carrots ... yes they have already won this award, but I love 'em too, like...religiously!!!

7. Noble Pig ... because pig is delicious, and they will show you 900 different way to make it and anything else you can imagine and then your family will fall at your feet and claim you a culinary wonder! lol

8. The Answer .... nothing to do with crafts or anything but this is my eldests blog. One...she shares it with me. 2. I enjoy her wit and banter. 3. She has a great sense of humor and 4. She always posts great funny pics and quotes!

9. Good Things Catered ... always yummy recipes to inspire the foodie in me!

10. Mod Podge Rocks ... because all things are better smothered in Mod Podge and this site is insanely full of craft ideas!

11. One Perfect Bite .... another of my ultimate favorite foodie blogs!

12. Sewing in No Man's Land ... a new, very interesting take on a personal sewing journey. Great read.


  1. congrats on your is well-deserved!

  2. Congrats on the award and thanks for passing it on. You are actually the third person I've received it from since May and I'm such a crappy blogger that I have yet to post about it. I can never keep up with that stuff. I do appreciate it :)

  3. Congratulations Tanyia. I have a question. Why did you drop EC. Just curious, you don't have to answer.

  4. No, I do not mind answering :)

    I was just seeing no results... the way I wanted. I really do not care about page views, I would rather have more followers and people that actually read and comment on my blog. Ya know what I mean? Too time consuming for minimal results.

  5. Tanyia, congratulations on your award and grateful thanks for passing a piece of it on to me. It really is appreciated. I hope the day is treating you well. Hugs and blessings...Mary

  6. Thank you so much Tanyia!! I'm so honored that you chose my blog for this award!! Happy Sunday!!


Thanks for taking the time to comment, it always makes my day!
