Green Blend Award!

This award was created by Beckie of Just B Creative Crazy.
"The “Green” portion represents how we should be kind to one another and help one another…such as being “Green” and helping our environment. Reissue the kindness that someone once gave to you as an infant blogger. Recycle the ideas you have learned or invented to pass along to up and coming crafters. Reduce the frustrations of wanting to a blogger with magnitude."

This was awarded to me by Susan at Cricut and Grasshopper. Susan has been so nice to me and made me want to keep going. She commented on almost all my posts when I started not that long ago. I didn't know what to expect with my blog, but I couldn't even imagine the how it would feel to read so many nice comment, get chosen to guest design, to be featured and to win a challenge. I will have two more firsts at the end of the month, with my first blog hop and I will have my first giveaway! I can't thank everyone enough for the kindness you have shown me. Thank you Susan for your encouragement and thanks to anyone reading this now or who has visited in the past. 
I do want to pass this on to a few others who have also encouraged me and visit and comment just because. It feels so good to have someone visit just to say good job!

1. This award is for any co-blogging friend who has helped you develop your blog in any and all ways.
