The Sunshine Award continues to thrive!

So I come home from JoAnn's after spending most of my hard earned money and crash in front of the computer with the idea that I'm going to be making heart squares for the afghan which is to be auctioned.  It is being put together by Becky so if you want to do one or two, too, check this out.

Anyway, I sit in front of the computer and see I have a message from dear Paula.  She has decided that I am cheerful and positive and creative!  HOORAY!!!  Someone loves me!   

She passed along the coveted Sunshine Award to me and 11 other very lucky people.  How sweet is that?  Now I get to pass it on to another 12 bloggers who make me happy and cheerful and give me positive creative vibes.  It really isn't that hard to decide - however, so many of the people I want to give it to have ALREADY received it! Yikes! 

So, below you will find the guidelines and names of lots of neat and wonderful people, and what they need to do when they (hopefully) accept this award.  This is sort of like a way to get people to check us out, I think!

The Sunshine Blog Award is awarded to bloggers whose positive and creativity inspires others in the blog world. The rules for accepting the award are:

1. Put the logo on your blog or within your post.
2. Pass the award to 12 bloggers.
3. Link the nominees within your post.
4. Let them know they received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.
