Lemonade Awards, Number 3 & 4

I cannot tell you how great I think ALL of you are. I've been honored with a third and fourth Lemonade Award. Linda Steider, an extremely talented glass artist, gave me my third Lemonade Award a couple weeks ago and I have been remiss is posting this. And my fourth Lemonade Award has been given to me by Celeste Bergin, a gifted painter.

First I have to share with you some things about both of these wonderful ladies:
Linda has 20 years experience as a fiber artist and was introduced to kilnformed glass in 1996. I just 'met' Linda through this wonderful world of cyberspace a couple of months ago and she is a great person. I'm so impressed with her work that I'm enrolled in a class she will be teaching, Powderology, this July when she heads to D & L Art Glass in Denver. Check out Linda's work as she is a talented glassist!
Celeste is another artist that I greatly admire, not only for her skill as a painter, but for her graciousness. She has regular exhibits and I find her work to be rich and moving. You can see more of her art at her website.

Thank you both for this award! I am deeply touched and honored.

Whew, that was a long acceptance speach! Now on to the explanation of a Lemonade Award. It is awarded to bloggers that show a positive attitude and gratitude.

Here are the rules for the award:
1.Put the logo on your blog or post
2.Nominate at least 10 blogs that show great Gratitude and/or Attitude.
3.Be sure to list and link your nominees within your post.
4.Let them know they have received this award by leaving a comment on their blog.
5.Nominate your favorites and link to your post.

I would love to re-nominate those blogs that I have previously given the award to, however, I also want to spread this joy around so here are my choices for the award:
Sue Furrow, Diary of a Madd Weekly Painter
Beverly Ash Gilbert, Eye For Color
Christine Mercer-Vernon, CMV Fine Art
Fine Mess Pottery
Sheila, From Forensic to Fine Art
Shay Stone
Elizabeth Seaver

Thanks for the kind words, Kathleen! Not only am I flattered, but you have me blushing & now my husband is worried my head won't fit through the front door, lol! I truly appreciate your compliments. You are very deserving of even more awards for your giving spirit. You have taught me a lot about the world of blogging and I am grateful to have 'met' you!
