An award and my new $1 calendar!

Sanda from Sanda's Hobby Blog bestowed upon me this wonderful award and I'm so grateful!
Sanda, you are so encouraging and sweet and it totally makes my day when you pop in to visit!

If you haven't been blessed to know Sanda yet, please pop over to her blog and see her wonderful creations. A treat for sure!

This wonderful Deborah Award is about friendship and it states:
"Friendship isn't about who you have known the longest, but who came and never left your side"

I'd like to pass this on to a few of my wonderful friends as well!

Lori at Sugarberry Sensations

Susan at Cackleblossums

and Diana Evans

Truly amazing women and artists! Please visit them♥

Ok, here's my new calendar! Michaels has a pile-o-calendars for the new year and I just loved this rooster one!

I'm so inspired, not only by the roosters (and chickens) themselves, but the gorgeous colors and backgrounds! I think each one, framed after 2010 would be awesome :) Ok, so I suppose for only a dollar I 'could' go buy another and frame them now. haha I love good deals, don't you?

Have a great weekend!

You have touched my heart more than you can possibly know! I'm not good with words like you are, I'm not good at expressing them, I'm not as eloquent with them as you, but good golly, ♥THANK YOU♥! You will always be in my heart!

I do love your calendar - it's beautiful! =)

Congrats on your award.
That calendar is completely gorgeous. Love those roosters. My sister collects them; her kitchen is all roosters and prim. This would be an awesome gift. Plus I'm always looking for an excuse to visit
