Official Acceptance Speech

I just returned from a trip and found this surprise in my inbox. My adorable friend from down under, Anne, who pens Cherry Pix: Sewing Pix, nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger/One Lovely Blog award. I feel like I've won an Oscar!
I love being an inspiration to others and there are SO many of you out there that are an inspiration to me. Isn't that what it's all about? Inspiring, encouraging, motivating and supporting each other? How incredibly blessed we are to have an instant gratification venue like the internet to connect with our sewing buddies around the world.

In keeping with tradition I will pass this honor on to several of my favorite bloggers that are an inspiration to me. Here are the rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you
2. Add The One Lovely Blog Award / The Very Inspiring Blogger Award to your post.
3. Share 7 things about yourself.
4. Pass the award on to 10 nominees (or a few less if you are short on time)
5. Include this set of rules.
6. Inform your nominees by posting a comment on their blogs.
So, here are 7 things about me that you would have no way of knowing:
1. I used to sing professionally. (Don't be too Mostly weddings and funerals.)
2. Dr. Drew's show occasionally calls me to ask questions on air. (Proves how dysfunctional I really am.)
3. I have a secret crush on Charles Krauthammer. (He is SO smart.)
4. I am the youngest of 4 girls.
5. My dad used to take us on survival training camp-outs as kids. (Poor guy really wanted boys.)
6. I've testified in front of a Grand Jury (I guess I didn't do too well, the poor sap went to Club Fed.)
7. I hate watermelon. (I know, I's so un-American.)
And now...the envelopes please! I would like to pass the love on to the following blogs:
As I Sew It Okay, any woman that owns a tractor, loves it, and names it Fergie is a winner in my book. Teri has a laid back style and I love to see her casual creations.
Aventuras de Costuras In my next life I want to come back as Merche. She has such radiant natural beauty and her personality sounds just adorable. Take a look at her blog and see the casual elegance she pulls together with her creations.
Claire Sews Claire. What can I possibly say about the woman that invented the SA Curve? Okay, to imagine it is one thing. But to actually follow through with the design and manufacturing of it and then market it? I'm just saying...she is my heroine. (Is the kind you shoot spelled differently?) She is right down the road from me out west and one of these days we're going to meet!
Ilove2sew! How cute is Sue Parrot? She is always such a great supporter on PR and her projects are always so artistic and creative. Check her out if you haven't already done so...
Now Sewing Martha and I bonded recently over a story she chronicled on her blog. My only regret is that I did not know her when I lived in Atlanta. But we know each other now! Check out her beautiful shirts...her detail is unbelievable.
P's Thrifty Sewing Blog Pauline is truly my sewing sister. We were fortunate to meet when she was in Houston and spent a fabulous evening together. Hopefully, more to come soon. This girl has a lot on her plate. She is getting married next year and not only is she making her dress and all the bridesmaids dresses, I believe she has signed on to make the men's suits and possibly all of the uniforms of the wait staff. I've never seen anyone like her!
Simple Inspirations Do you know Myra? I know many of you do from PR. She is always an inspiration...just check out the gorgeous lace peplum she recently created!
Congratulations to all of my other blogging buds that have already joined the esteemed alumus of this coveted award...enjoy!
