7 Blogs I Nominate:

Witch Hollow Primitives
Heather is not only totally creative, but she is versatile and charming. Oh, and she is the nicest person ever and puts together a beautiful blog.

Skeleton in My Closet
Even though Josie would like to have an award-free blog zone, I am going to send this award her way. She is just too talented, a bit twisted, and very busy with her blogs, art groups, work, and sculpts. I couldn't leave her out, she is a major inspiration to me.

PieCaKe PRiMiTiVeS
Lorraine is one busy and amazingly quick sew-ster! She creates charming soft dolls for all the holidays with a definite personal style. They are sweet and her blog has the most lovely photos of her creations.

Octoberfarm
This is one of the most interesting blogs I have ever visited. Jaz not only posts the most beautiful photos of her surroundings, but she has an amazing collection of rare {and rarely seen} witch treasures AND she cooks, too! You will be transfixed and hungry after visiting her blog!

Paint_Misbehavin
Witty and wise and covered in paint -- that is our Paint {yep, that's her name, too}. Fairly new to blogging but not to creating some wonderful Halloween themed artworks. Her primitive paintings of extra-large moons set in the nightsky are simply breath-taking!

Lisa Lectura Creations
Lisa's blog was one of the first blogs I ever visited... and she got me hooked. Lisa is very versatile - working with fabric, paint, stitches, wax, and embellishments. Her blog will make you feel calm and blessed, I know that's how I feel with every visit.

Light and Shadow Studio
Tammy is a complete phenomenon! Her signature art pieces are the happiest beaming moons ever, but that is just the tip of her "iceberg". She sculpts and carves ornies that are highly collected and snapped up nearly before the paint is dry! Her blog is a wonderful showcase -- don't miss it.

I wish I could have listed all of my favorites, but that would have taken me all year!!!

Thanks again, Susie, for this award, your supportive and kind words, and your willingness to share.

with fondness, Karen

{I will not be drawn in, I will not be drawn in, I will not be drawn in} There, now I've fortified myself against a wonderful blog award. Whew.

Seriously Karen, I thank you for your sweet words AND the attention pointed at my blog.

And 'Back atcha', since your art never ceases to surprise and delight me.

You wouldn't have gotten it if I didn't feel you WELL deserved it, so bask in the glow, lol. I see Diane left you an award as well - another very discerning reader....

Lisa Lectura Creations said...

Hi Karen! I don't think I ever knew about this lovely award! I was just browsing to keep up with your creative inspirations and saw this. If I thanked you already, then I must be losing it. I know around this time, I was on vacation. Thanks so much for passing on the love!

Hugs,
Lisa :)
