Lynne, at Lynne's Little Corner of the World, was sweet enough to give me these two awards. To be thought of as creative and thoughtful means a lot to me, and especially so because if Lynne hadn't passed these on to me, she is one of the first people I would have thought deserving of them. Here's what they mean: The Creative Blogger Award is for those who bring unique and creative elements to their blogs. For those who incorporate art, music, creative writing, photo's, and other beautiful visual effects into their website. For those who put a unique spin on things and come up with new ideas. This award is for the artsy, the funky, the inventor, and even the rebel. This award is for those creative individuals who stand out from the crowd. The Thoughtful Blogger Award is for those who answer blog comments, emails, and make their visitors feel at home on their blogs. For the people who take others' feelings into consideration before speaking out and who are kind and courteous. Also for all of those bloggers who spend so much of their time helping other bloggers design, improve, and fix their sites. This award is for those generous bloggers who think of others.
Thanks, Lynne, I'm flattered. (blush) . . . but I could use a little help figuring out how to add these buttons to my sidebar, so I'm not so sure the technie part applies to me!
