Amarettogirl's Blog Awards!

Wishing You Some Winter Warmth a vector illo made to relearn Adobe Illustrator

January has been an especially challenging month. In fact, it is by far the hardest new year I have faced. On top of so many emotional losses both personal and at work, my cb (chronic bronchitis) has returned and taken its toll on me. However, I have been really fortunate this month to receive TWO blog awards by fellow bloggers that I truly admire! In addition, I have been spending some of my meditative time re-teaching myself vector graphics with Adobe Illustrator! So finally, here are the awards, the new nominees and some original, new, (and sadly rushed) vector art (ABOVE) for All of them from me!

Lovely Blog Award - Awarded to me by Vink @ As Minds Goes By- Millionminds ArtAs Mind Goes by - Millionminds Art has been nominated me for this "One Lovely Blog Award". Thank you so much to Vink!

The rules are that I have to nominate 7 lovely blogs that I love.....but before I do...

I was also nominated for this award by Sabine at CUTEBOO!

Award Este Blog awarded to me by Sabine at Cute Boo

The original authors say that blogs who receive this award are exceedingly charming! These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that even more friendships are propagated. *(note to authors, original text shortened and edited by this blog owner for brevity.)

I appreciate a lovely, poignant, honest, creative and intriguing blog. Here are my nominees for both lovely and este blogs in NO particular order:

3.Kawaii at Cuteboo (right back at you babe!)
