One Lovely Blog Award

It's high time I officially accept my award from Alison, Catherine, and Jessica S. Thank you! I am honored. And since today is "Picture Book" day, I chose to give this award to several picture book bloggers (the first twelve in the list below).

The rules say to pay it forward by turning around and awarding 15 blogs with the same award. I'm doing five bonus bloggers. However, if you've already received it once, I certainly don't expect you to turn around and award 15 MORE. No, just say thank you and take a bow.

  1. GREAT BLOG SLANT - My first award goes to Alison Stevens at Wistful Wanderings. She awarded me first. Her blog is dedicated to creativity. She writes creative nonfiction picture books.
