Celebrating Friendships

I have been so blessed with friends I never knew I have until I found myself in a sad situation. They say that you discover who your true friends are during times of trouble and I sure did here. I am blessed and so grateful to those who reached out to me and offered words of consolation and words of promise! You all have given Blogosphere a whole new meaning. To me, it is now the Holy Grail for finding Precious friends! So as a way of celebrating your friendships, I am awarding you with these awards I recently got from other great bloggy friends. Everyone will get both award.

The first award, I got from lovely Iceah who according to her has got great legs! Hence her blog title is Wow Legs! :)

The rules of this award are:
1. The winner can put the logo on his/her blog. 2. Link the person you received your award from. 3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs. 4. Put links of those blogs on yours. 5. Leave a message on the blogs of the people you’ve nominated

And this one, I got from ThirtysomethingReality who I admire for being a biker's lady and trying to be a biker lady herself.

Now all of you are getting it:
Purpled Sky
Ms. Bar B:
Jonara Blu Maui
Dawn@Embracing the Ordinary Life
Weith Kick
Jenn P.
Vodka Mom
A Day to Share with Tammy

    Thanks for wanting to join the Creative Swap!!!
    For starters, would you please post an entry on your blog about the swap (i made a logo for us! hope you like it! please see attachment) and answer this creative meme:

    1. What kind of creative things are you into?

    2. How would you describe your personal style? (girly, ethnic, modern, etc.)

    3. What are your favorite colors?

    4. What is one craft you would like to learn?

    5. What other hobbies are you into?

    6. What items do you really wish you had right now?

    Mechanics of the swap:
    1. Post the mechanics and logo on your blog and answer the meme. This will serve as reference for the people who will be sending you stuff. If you could, please tag back to my page so other interested people can also sign up.
    2. The swap will be held every 2 months. You will be assigned a swap partner on rotation. Consult the meme that your partner posted on his/her blog and send 4 items.
    3. The 4 items are as follows (1-something you made --- it can be anything!, 2-a craft material you think he/she would enjoy and 3- a snack or something you like munching on before, during or after the creative rush---It'd be nice to send something interesting from where you are currently based, 4- a short note or card to say 'Hi!')
    4. Wait to receive your items and then post something about it on your blog.
    5. Other crafters who aren't bloggers are also welcome to join; they just have to send me an email with their name, adress and answers to the meme above to be included in the rotation. Emails may be sent to gandarynako-at-yahoo-dot-com.
    6. On the first week of each month you will be sent the details of your next swap partner. Please try to keep all details confidential.

    If you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to email me. Looking forward to our swap and to making new friends!
