"Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe." Saint Augustine
"Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you." Princess Diana
Loved these two quotes for ages and perfect to share with you today. Being nominated by other bloggers for awards makes for a wonderful day. Not only did someone read your blog but they thought enough to share one of their awards. Blogging is a strange little world where you get to peek into other people's creative projects, holiday photos or ramblings about their day.
Blogging does take time and effort to create the space and then fill on a regular basis with interesting titbits. Some of us do it for professional reasons and some for a way to connect with family and friends. What ever the reason all bloggers have something in common, we like to share the joy of our discoveries in arts, crafts, recipes, or life and the possibilities of all kinds of good things.
We might not see each other and am sure we all see lots in our world that is not great but continue to post - shining the spotlight on good things we can find sharing with anyone who cares to look. Some of my favourite bloggers include
- Sandi's Whistle Stop Cafe the greatest recipes
Jamie's Star Shyne Productions with inspiration of all kinds
- Jill of Bittersweet Soap thoughts on soulful creations and her handmade soaps
- Beachy's Cape Cod vintage creations & beautiful photos of the beaches of Cape Cod, a place that is always close in my heart not matter what part of the earth we are standing in
- Thanks to Noell of PaperClipping for explaining technical aspects of good design in plain English
- Shabby in the City for flea market Fridays and vintage creativity
Lisa of Heart of the Nest and Imagination Cafe is hosting the One World One Heart event that is link 100s of bloggers from around the world, who ordinarily might not have got to meet.
The idea is that we post a RAK (give away) of our craft or something nice with all the drawings Valentines Day. Can not decide on the give away, shall I create something or assemble a collage package of bits & pieces for someone to do their own thing.
According to the little stats maker 100's of people visit this space every weekend, if you deduct my mum and best friends, that still leaves a few of you unaccounted for, from all kinds of places including Africa, India, Japan, and even Brazil.
As a warm up for this give away - why don't you post, say hello, wave your flag from where ever (you know I love to travel) and let me know what you think would be a good RAK. Then I can get cracking and contribute to this One Wold One Heart event as a reward or thank you to all of you.
