Noblesse Award

I was very touched to get this award - so sorry it took so long to post it.. HybridJ - whom I adore gave me this one.. The Noblesse Award. Thank you so much!!
And for this award, I’m to write about what this blog has thus far achieved. I needed to give this one a little thought.

I started this blog strictly as a way to promote my artwork. It quickly morphed into something very different. As I got to know folks here I found an amazing group of just women at first - but am pleased to say - I have found some amazing men too!! So very quickly my blog became more to me than just my art, but an amazing place to not only be myself but share of my self in ways that I truly had not expected. I love to write... really do - I just had not expected that anyone else would find value in anything I might put out there. It seems, much to my surprise and delight, some of you do.
The writing turned into a joy and that joy turned into A Quilting Bee of Women. I found so many women who amazed me and touched my life in huge ways. I saw them reaching out to others & to me in wonderful ways. You have all carried me though some rough stuff in my life and I am forever changed by what you offered me here. It struck me that we were like old quilting bees and did a post about that - it has turned into a weekly joy for me. I did change the name, as a few brave fellows have joined us!!
I'm not sure what I have achieved but, I guess I hope that my blog not only touches others, but respects the feelings and beliefs of others. I try to support up other artists and encourage new ones - I have been so graciously encouraged here and bloomed because of all of your loving care. My artwork and my soul thank you all for being a part of my Quilting Bee and part of my life!! Namaste, Sarah

Congratulations Sarah! You really do have a talent for writing. I only when it strongly strikes me.

I too started this for my art and have gotten off the track. Back to the track for me, back to twitter, facebook, bonanzle, art link and others! Time to get back to my original intention which is promoting my art in different forums.

OMG...I am just now going over posts from my favorite blogs...yours is definitely a daily read...but have been a bad, bad blogger of late...and see you have bestowed this award to me. The phrase that quickly came to my mind was the Waynes World "I'm not worthy". I am totally humbled and thank you from the bottom of my heart.
