The Sunshine Award


One of the many reasons I started this blog was to connect with all those creative and talented people who have inspired me along the way.

I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know people around the world who share a love of crafting, sewing and thrifting.

And now I’ve been given an ultimate compliment from Elizabeth at

 Let It Be Lovely:

The Sunshine Award!

Elizabeth is an excellent writer and in her blog Let it Be Lovely she shares the fun and interesting things she’s found in the blogosphere as well as her own life experiences. Thank you for giving me this honor.

To pass on this gift, I’d like to nominate these incredible blogs:

Sewing with Trudy Trudy is a beautiful mother of six from Texas who somehow finds the time to sew wonderful things and blog about her projects and her life. You can just feel the love and patience she has while reading her blog. She gave me encouragement when I first started blogging.

Ooobop! Janene is a graphic designer from London who blogs about her sewing adventures. She is candid and funny and shares her frustrations as well as successes in this highly entertaining blog.

Everyday Chaos Bridget is another mom of 6 who somehow finds time to sew and craft the most beautiful things! I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Bridget since she was in my 3rd grade class. And I can see I now have so much to learn from her about blogging,   her blog is amazing!

Let’s Get Thrifty Tracy’s blog is as much fun to look at as it is to read. She’s got great photos and and I love how she compares refashioning to Michelangelo’s work. :) She can make anyone get excited about thrift store finds!

Nifty Thrifty Goodwill Another great blog on thrifting and refashioning. I really like the recent dress she made from a skirt!

Elizabeth also asked me to answer these questions so you could get to know me a little better.

Thank you again, Elizabeth, this has been fun!
