"A" for awards ... new and old ...

ahhh ... i've been lazy. i dun even feel like taking pics and listing my new rings on etsy. somedays you just wanna sleep ... and dream of paul bettany. yes... i liked legion, whatever the reviews say.

but you know what? it's time to get out of bed and party becos i've got some awards to talk about :)) several old ones and a new one ... YIPEE!!

stephanie of dragonfly design studios, a most talented and intricate artist passed me this wonderful KreativBloggger way back. thank you so much stephanie!

not just a fine artist, stephanie is a fine lady and i am proud to call her my teammate at inspiration avenue :) constantly looking out for not only our teammates, but other artists who fascinate her. i know i really enjoy her frequent features of etsy artists and their work at her blog. and if you are a lover of fine art and flowers, you must visit stephanie. the first time i set my eyes upon her work, i was gobsmacked and still am each time she comes up with a new piece. just look at details and heart that she puts into her art work! simply stunning!

the second award You've Got Style was passed on to me by sanda of sanda's hobby blog. thank you so much sweet sanda!

sanda hails from ireland and is an artist whose love lies in anything beautiful :) i think she's probably tried and excelled in every art medium known to man, whether it be mixed media, painting, clay mosaics, candles or cards! and all her work and i mean all ... turns out beautifully! i especially love the concepts of her handmade cards and the colors she uses on them ... beautiful, elegant and filled with joyful, positive energy :) do you not agree? :)

finally for a new award :) i'm sure most of you on bloggie land are currently either flying on a carpet or receiving this SunshineAward, or perhaps ... having the best of both worlds :D

3 wonderful gals passed me this award :)

the first being ... elaine from chat elaine jewellery, a fascinating jewelry artist who makes one of a kind pieces and a constant participant at inspiration avenue's weekly challenges. thank you elaine! and what's more, her latest passion is playing with fire. can you already guess? yes! she now makes her own lampwork beads for her jewelry! now, that's talent! in her own works ..." i love to play with beads, wire and fire!" check out her work!

the other pretty lady who passed me the sunshine award is charlie from art happens, another of my wonderful teammate at IA ... thank you charlie! charlie paints beautiful whimsical paintings of ladies in fantastical backgrounds, she makes jewelry from broken china (and i'm always intrigued at how she solders so perfectly!), makes digital art, mixed media art and handmade cards from her artwork. another artist who excels in everything she chooses to put her hands on. charlie is one of the gentlest people i've ever met and so honored to call her my teammate :)

finally, yet another teammate from IA tells me that i am her sunshine (or so i hope ;p)! thank you shel :) shel from pics by shel , a wonderful photographer who makes everyday items and scenery that you won't even notice, magical and inspiring. she transports you to a different realm with her images and her editing work. each time i look at her images it makes me feel ... this can't be here on earth! and lately, my sweet fren has been dabbling with mixed media and making all sorts of lovelies ... hmmm ... i sense an addiction coming :) here's one of my latest fav image of hers ... so lost in time, so much romance ...
