Nomination for the Versatile blogger’s award!


versatile-blogger-wordpress

I was kindly nominated for the versatile blogger’s award as a big new year’s surprise by http://earth-rider.com/2013/12/27/the-season-of-giving-awards/ and even though I had taken the resolution to restore all my vanished photos back into my blog instead of forever procrastinating I decided that such generosity shouldn’t go unnoticed & took upon myself to immediately get to it before getting on with the restoration…
So, my excuses go to all my bloggers for not following, liking your posts. I hope you forgive me & understand the sacrifices needed for me to update my blog.

A blog is not one of quality when the photography or the natural recipes categories are void of photos…

Here are the rules I got from http://versatilebloggeraward.wordpress.com/vba-rules/

Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

So, here goes, the fifteen bloggers I nominated are …

http://clairecappetta.wordpress.com/
http://friendlyfairytales.com/
http://thekitchensgarden.com/
http://soberidentity.com/
http://clanmother.com/

I know that not all of these bloggers will have the time to accept this award as it is quite time consuming nevertheless they are each and everyone in its own right a blogger of tremendous high quality which merits to be recognized by publishing its link in this blog.
This will be my tribute to their achievement in the domain of their endeavor 🙂

Finally I’ll include as it’s required seven things about myself.

1. I’m mad about the sea & anything connected to nature
2. One of my dreams is to go off-grid & live off the fruits of my labor
3. I dream (once again 😉 ) of a kind gentle honest world
4. I’d like to secure a safe future for my grandchildren
5. Surrounded in an atmosphere of artists is where I’d love to thrive in
6. It would be nice if my weaknesses would get weaker 😉
7. I’d love one day to have the privilege to meet a personality (again, in the domain of art)

All my thanks again for this award!

Nomination for the sunshine award!


sunshine-award

I feel very honored and grateful to have received this award. I know that some (I included ;)) feel they are a lengthy process but it is a pleasure to feel your blog is appreciated enough to have received it plus it is an opportunity to link bloggers with similar interests so, all in all my deepest thanks goes to… http://quarteracrelifestyle.wordpress.com/2013/10/09/the-sunshine-award/ for thinking my blog is worthy of this award.

So the rules of this award are the following:

1) Use the logo above in the post.
2) Link to whoever nominated you.
3) Write ten pieces of information about yourself.
4) Nominate ten fellow bloggers “who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogsphere.”
5) Leave a comment on the nominees’ blogs to tell them of the award.

So, ten pieces about myself! Wow that’s a hard one 🙂

1. My family comes first, my art second and my blog is what glues it all together
2. I enjoy working on a piece of writing. I’m as a rule very critical but quickly satisfied when the result seems much better than expected but have learned to let it rest a while so I can look at it with a different mindset in order to go on polishing it which is contrary to my impatient side.
3. I absolutely love painting but find days too short when busy with writing. I don’t like neglecting that side so I go on painting binges which I revel in, get transported in a beautiful dimension of colors and shapes and feel whole.
4. I wish there was enough time in my life to learn a musical instrument…
5. Taking a sculpture course or even develop it on my own.
6. Nature is where I recharge my batteries and take the opportunity to appreciate it all the more through the eye of a lens but would rather have gone professional with the equipment.
7. I love animals, don’t have the space to have their company & have not grown up with them to be totally comfortable in their presence.
8. Still dream of having a dolphin encounter in its natural habitat…
9. Possess & learn how to ride a horse.
10. Feel that families are the molds, where we can teach true values to generations which is our only hope for a serene, balanced & functional future world. If we are not happy with the way things are right now this is the first place to work on. It is worth all the time & energy invested 🙂

Here are the ten amazing bloggers which I have nominated…

1. http://poeticparfait.com/ for the kindness that transpires through her blog
2. http://naomibaltuck.wordpress.com/ for her dynamism & enthusiasm toward life
3. http://livingsimplyfree.wordpress.com/ for her courage & creativity
4. http://soberidentity.com/ for her tremendous inspiration & kindness
5. http://thekitchensgarden.com/about/ for bringing the farm world to us & keeping our dream alive
6. http://charlotteauchocolat.com/ for her deliciously natural & unusual olive oil exotic cake recipes
7. http://tornadoday.wordpress.com/ for her poems which are dripping jewels
8. http://ladybluerose.wordpress.com/ for her tremendous art in writing, for being a true inspiration, and a living example.
9. http://weedimageoftheday.com/ for photography that focuses on bringing out the beauty from the most unusual… weeds
10. http://suedreamwalker.wordpress.com/ for her amazing kindness, bringing us so much information on the environment and spiritual guest speakers.

I understand this is time consuming, would be honored if you’d accept this award but totally understand if you can’t manage it. As http://quarteracrelifestyle.wordpress.com/2013/10/09/the-sunshine-award/ said, pass it on to someone you look up to & admire for their qualities.

Once again, all my thanks for this nomination!
