It's Award Season

My name is Kelly, and I'm terrible about blogger awards.  I have been sitting on quite a few of them for a while, then got four more in the last week. 

I apologize to those who gave them to me for being so bad about it. 

I know that each of these awards have special rules about answering questions and nominating other people, but I think today in exchange for my delay in acknowledging them, I will devote this post to the givers, not myself. 

Up first is one of my favorite bloggers, Happy Little Feet.  She inspires me all the time with her homemade cleaners and personal hygiene items.  It's amazing what she comes up with .  She also shares her recipes  and her stories about life as she sees it.  She just may have the most adorable blog name and header in the world.  She gave me the Laine Blogger Award and the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award, and I am completely behind in saying thank you properly.  You can find her blog here, and her Facebook page here.  She's a delight.

I've been given the Very Inspiring Blogger Award five times now, and I need to thank each and every one of those bloggers as well. 

Up first is Homespooled.  She is such an inspiration for me, which is what makes the fact that she gave it to me an honor.  I wish someday to have a fraction of her talents.  She can take ordinary things and make them beautiful.  I tried knitting, and I made lumpy triangles.  She makes masterpieces.  You can find her blog here and her Facebook page here.

Red Hot Writing Hood is someone that I just recently discovered, and she's just amazing.  I think she has more energy than most people I know combined.  Just check out her description on her Facebook page: Designer, artist, blogger, human being, repressed athlete, photographer, wife, mom, wannabe world traveler, sarcastic, imperfect perfectionist.  She's all those things and more.  You can find her blog here and her Facebook page here.

The Insomniac's Dream.  Where to begin?  She's a tortured soul right now, and a piece of my heart resides with her.  There aren't many writers that blow me away the first time I read them, but she was one.  Her words are like magic beads strung together, it really is beautiful.  I just adore her, and am proud to call myself a friend.  You can find her blog here and her Facebook page here.

A Mother Life is one of my newest friends, and she's just wonderful.  She's funny, she's real.  She shares her wild journey of motherhood with us all, and we are better for it.  I promise.  You should check out her about me section - I am fairly sure that she and I were sisters in a past life.  She is awesome.  You can find her blog here and her Facebook page here.

Last, but certainly not least, The Sadder But Wiser Girl.  She's hilarious and one of the most genuine people you'll meet on the internet.  She just gave me this award after waiting a while to write about it herself, and nominated herself for the Flake Award, which I wholly deserve.  We're good people, honest, we just procrastinate and get distracted by shiny things.  Not that there's anything wrong with that.  I love her, and you will too.  You can find her blog here and her Facebook page here
