I have a long list of blogs that I follow and through them, I have met quite a few fellow artisans. It has been a lot of fun, and even though things have been incredibly busy for me lately, I enjoy reading the blogs and learning new things and learning more about them.

I wanted to thank a couple of wonderful women for reading my blog and liking it enough to award me with two blog awards:
The first one is Tami Abiuso from Holistic Diva. She gave me an award called the Vespa Blogger Friendship Award. She also has a shop at ArtFire called Essensu. It is a fantastic shop and I have purchased from her in the past and will do again in the future. She always puts some samples in with your purchase... something to actually make your mouth water... the Organic Pumpkin Body Polish is lip smacking, drool inducing heaven! It was just a sample but I have to say it is incredible! It smells just like the pumpkin bread I make... I don't know that it is fair to make me hungry when I am taking a shower or bath :) Anyway, her lotion is fabulous and my mother-in-law loves her bath salts. Her products will make you smile while indulging the inner diva in all of us.

And the second is the "The Lovely Blog Award" from Jenn and she runs the shop JennuineCandles at ArtFire and she also has a blog called Jennuine Candles. I have a few of her candles "hot listed" for when I have enough earnings from my shop, to spend at other shops (does that make sense? LOL)... I want to support other artisans with small shops, keep the circle going so to speak. She using 100% palm oil for her candles which gives them this incredible look... almost like crystals formed on the surface of the candles. She has a lot of different scents and colors and her prices are very reasonable. When you have the chance, take a look at her store.
