Here are the 10 names I drew....remember, this is just a small fraction of the bloggers I'd like to give this award to!
Morwyn of Another Country...fantastic beader and member of the BJP.
Leslie, of Art Heart, who is not only a great mixed media artist but just wrote the most moving series of posts about her mother's death last month.
Jackie of Beading Gram, who is a wonderful supportive friend and fellow fiber/bead artist.
Robin of Beadlust, who has been my major inspiration for bead embroidery since I found her book, One Bead at a Time years ago.
Linda of Born Under a Bead Sign, another friend and incredibly talented bead artist who just had a beaded bracelet pattern published in the current Bead and Button magazine. Way to go, linda!
Diana, of The Lone Beader, whose beadwork just keeps getting bigger and better....YGG!
Janet of Life in Westcliffe, yet another friend and wonderful photographer who is primarily responsible for my being able to put my own photo at the top of this blog...thanks, janet!
Nina of Ornamental who is a wonderful artist, but it's her words that usually touch me deeply and I hope someday she can find the time to write a whole book about her artistic process....it would be a best seller!
SuzyQ of Beadweaver who finds the most fantastic beaders on the web for all of us to enjoy...and is a pretty darn good artist herself, although where she finds the time to bead is beyond me!
Sara of The Fabric of Meditation who has been an inspiration for doing more fiber work and who's studio is to die for...
I also have to add all the other participants in the Bead Journal Project and the Take It Further Challenge....all you foks just blow me away on a daily basis and I almost wish you'd stop, as you are all cutting into my beading time!
Or maybe I just need to develop some discipline...LOL!

Congrats on your award! Very well deserved! Also, thanks for mentioning me! I am a bit of an over-achiever, aren't I... ;)

Beadin' Gram said...

A very deserved award for you, Bobbi. I can't tell you how many times you have made my day. Kudos to you, my friend.

I'm glad I have some luck left. Watching your bead work in progress is always a delight. Love your work.

Anytime you want to change your photo let me know, be happy to help you out in any way I can.

I'll be emailing you soon with another sister bracelet order for my brothers wife. Things are nuts here with my mother!
