I'm giving away a blog award!

I've been blogging for about 7 months now and in that very short period of time, through the mysterious world of blogland, I have met some very, very amazing people.

People who have helped me on my way in bear making, people who have inspired me through their work and their blogs, people who have encouraged me and people who have complimented and enjoyed what I have made so far... it's for people like these that I have made this award.

Yeah... it's starting here... and maybe it's too goofy... but it's to point out and appreciate blogland interactions that repeatedly make my day better, whether through amazing thoughtfulness, a simple comment or inspiring work and posts in their blog.

If you haven't visited the blogs I'm giving this award to... please do! They are filled with talent, humor and amazingly kind-hearted people :)

Here's how it works!

If you receive this award, please share one artist that is inspirational to you (but not an artist you plan on giving the award to) and then pass the award along to 8 people who have inspired you, helped you, made you laugh... you know, 8 people you REALLY appreciate. :)

First, an artist that inspires me:

This is the cover illustration of Gashleycrumb's Tinies... a rather... gruesome book by one of my all time favorite illustrators... Edward Gorey.
He was a strange, strange man and I love him for it!

Now, the blogs to which I give this award!

H 1. bearbits
O 2. bingle bears
O 3. A Stuffed Life
T 4. Skunkboy Creatures
H 5. Rainbow Project
O 6. Bearly Sane
O 7. Cart Before The Horse
T 8. Ciia... What's Up?

Here is a smaller version :)
