Many, many days ago, two very nice people put these
nice pictures on their blog and listed me among some
other, very cool blogs. What a lovely surprise, one, and
two, what a lovely surprise first thing in the morning
when, rudely awakened by needy child, I flip open the
laptop in the nursery and see these. I'm almost certain
the two nice people have probably forgotten about
the awards they sent my way, so long have I sat on
them. But I haven't - and here I am at last to pay tribute!
Thank you, MaryAnne, for this award!
I 'm going to be naughty and not pick 15 blogs to pass
this on to. Instead I am going to pick 3 of MaryAnne's
posts to tell everyone about. They aren't all about
crafting, which she does incredibly well, but about
other important things that are close to my heart
and about which she wrote so compellingly:
Thank you also, MaryAnne for opening so many doors
to other fascinating and clever people, whose creativity
and general zaniness have been so inspiring.
This next one came from The Adventures of Bear, which
is full of wonderful things to do with small kids, whom
I seem to have lots of (small kids, that is).
Thank you, Girl Who Painted Trees!
The naughtiness continues -
here are 3 of my favorite Bear posts:
1 This wonderful alphabet Alphabet book which I want to
make soon for my youngest.
2 Lovely color collages with fun ideas on how to use them.
I love the color names in other languages.
3 100 books to read, and a sensible, balanced view on
reading to kids. I don't recognize a lot of those books
and I want to check them out!
