The Lovely Heart Award!

Yes! I have won another award! Do I have a lovely heart? I'm not sure. I think it depends on my state of mind at the time! Leanne obviously thinks I have though, so thank you Leanne for having faith in me!

The text to accompany the award reads as follows:

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

I'd really like to give this award to my new clay tutor, although he doesn't write a blog. The reason being is that second sentence "They are not interested in self-aggrandizement" - I admire how over the years he has put the tutoring of others ahead of his own career as a potter and ceramic artist. This is testament to his love of clay, and his desire to share this joy with others.

There are other potters and ceramic artists who I feel have that same attitude, and I would like to pass on this award to those ones also, namely Leanne and Cynthia.

My remaining five are... Ooh, I have too many! Do I really have to limit it to eight? Ok, my remaining five are:
Philippa, and
Kari, who always replies to comments on her blog with an email, which I think is a lovely personal touch. (I can't do that on blogger because I don't get to see the commenter's email address)

Was that list predictable? What can I say? All my favourite bloggers have lovely hearts! There are others who are definitely worthy of this award, but some of them have been awarded it already (Connie and Queen Crafty Girl) and some are a little shy of receiving awards (Jafabrit)! And if I haven't listed you, that in no way indicates that I don't think you're lovely! If I link to you or follow you, you're lovely!

LOL, yes, I am a wee shy about getting awards :) thanks for thinking of me though :)

Congratulations on the award. I have to think that even though your tutor does not have a blog they would appreciate your giving one. Good tutors are a true blessing. It is fun watching how your work evolves and the growing joy that comes from it.

Thank you so much Jafabrit. I am definitely having fun!

Maybe I will tell my tutor about the award?

Thanks for popping by :)

Thank you so much! I didn't realize I got an award until I clicked on the heart picture beside your blog :) Thank you for thinking of me.

I have heard that my Aunt Leanne is going to visit you soon--I am excited for you both :) I will find a way to sneak to London with her! hehehe
