Well I'll be. Mei over at WireBlissMei recently selected me for the Lemonade award which is given for gratitude and attitude. Thanks Mei for saying that my blog shows an "attitude of gratitude, uplifting and has good content."

So to live up to her words, in an "attitude of gratitude", I select the following blogs for the same award.

Here are the rules for the award:
1.Put the logo on your blog or post
2.Nominate blogs that show great Gratitude and/or Attitude and link to your post.
3. Let them know they have received this award by leaving a comment on their blog.

Bev's Jewelry

Bev has both gratitude and attitude in spades. First of all, she is a cancer survivor. She knows too well what a horrid disease this is so she created a jewelry line on her online shop called Lexie's Jewelry where $10 from each purchase goes to cancer research. The jewelry collection is named in honour of a 10 year old girl who developed a brain tumor when she was just a tiny baby and has endured much in her young life. Bev truly has a heart of gold - some of her blog posts touch on the plight of people less fortunate than us. I do hope Bev has plenty of forgiveness too for I think I forgot to acknowledge a similar sort of award she gave me a while ago!

A Bead A Day

BetteJo willingly shares her life, both the ups and downs with her many readers - a life enriched by her two grown children, her four cats and a sense of humour. Her Maxine Monday cartoons are guaranteed to put a smile on your face. She stumbled onto my blog back in 2007 and I am grateful she did. Not only has she taken the time to leave many, many comments, one early comment in particular on my past post, 16th century Elizabethan Metrosexual and His Jewelry, encouraged me to develop what is now a reader favourite, jewelry related mini-bios of famous people from history or as one reader puts it the "wacky bygone generations!"

Kokopelli Design

Dagmar who hails from Germany deserves this award for her can do attitude. Her passion is Native American bead and quill work. When she realised many of the beading community only communicated in English, she made sure they could read her blog by publishing it in two languages! Although I don't read or speak German, there are recognisable words like "und" for "and", "kollektion" for "collection". This is not surprising for Old English was the language of the Germanic tribes collectively known as the Anglo-Saxons who invaded and began settling Britain from the 5th century AD. So I am grateful for Dagmar for her linguistic lessons with every blog post and of course, finding out what she has been up to.

Creative Potential on Etsy

Pamela Vale is a multi-talented artist who lives up to the name of her shop and blog for she is just a-bubbling with lots of ideas. Like me, she also believes you can make great jewelry from unusual materials such as a bracelet a clear plastic tubing stuffed with pretty yarns. Dipping into her past posts, you can find off-centred wire worked bails, trompe l'oeil paintings, artwork, home decor and a series of antique store finds such as this jewelry display. Her artistic eye also results in some clever jewelry photography ideas such as using scrapbook props (not paper). Her floating earring photo shoot was really cool! She does indeed see potential in everything around her. So thank you for inspiring us all.
