Those lovely rays of Sunshine!!

I guess there are other true coffee fans out there!!!  

I was reading through the comments that people kindly left about my coffee blog and was thrilled to find that two of them were to inform me of the Sunshine award.  Then, when the excitement subsided a bit, I realised that I was doubting my deservence of this award.  After all, I've only just started writing, and so far I've been completely self-indulgent  -- It's all about me me me!!!  

Then I realised that it isn't up to me to decide why someone nominated me - it's up to me to say thank you so much for doing so.  It's also up to me to let them know exactly how flattering and encouraging it is to receive an acknowledgment like this.  So THANK YOU to Confessions of crafty mummy (aka One stop pamper shop )  and to Faeryatrix.  You made me smile.  :)

There are obligations that come along with accepting this award and I'm not sure if I can fulfill all of them.  If you haven't already seen them - here they are :

  • Place this award on your blog or in a post
  • Pass the award on to 12 bloggers 
  • Link the nominiees within the post 
  • Let the nominiees know they have received the award by commenting on their blog
  • Share the love and link to the person from whom you received the award  
I'm so very new to the world of blogging that I know that I can't pass on this award to 12 bloggers for each one.  I just haven't had the time to read 24 blogs properly never mind actually follow them over a period of time!!  I'm going to combine them and stick to 12 - let me know if I'm cheating and should hand one back :(
  1. Craftblog UK by haptree because it is jam-packed with useful information!
  2. Marice's World because her pancake is still making me giggle and I can't wait for more. 
  3. Over the Rainbow because she talks about the things that make her happy. 
  4. Wisdom of Woody because already I've read so many of his very practical and knowledgeable pointers. 
  5. Craftdom because I like her taste and always enjoy looking into the artist she chooses.
  6.  Niftyknits because what she says makes sense and plus - I can't stop looking at those Meerkats!
  7. Evie George because her blog is so personable and beautiful. 
  8. Rebuilding the Ancient Ruins because although she probably doesn't realise it - she should know that I admire her faith and energy.  It comes through in her blog.  
  9. Birdcage Creative because everyone should see how beautiful her shop is and her contact me page is excellent!
  10. Woollylakes because her blogs are fun to read AND she is a fellow geocacher!
  11. Beaded Flora because I found a whole new twist to french beading here.  Gorgeous. 
  12. Top Floor Treasures because she has 4 but should have more :)
