happy new year!

we may be small and at the end of the earth, but we get to see in the new year FIRST!!!

(well, in 60 minutes, but i'm nothing if not organsied!)

while, i'm being organised, i'd like to pass on this award i received from working mum AND reluctant (thanks girlies!)
it came with this blurb:

These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

because we have such a tight blog 'family', i've struggled to share this, coz we all wanted to share it bloggers who already have it, but i've made some new blog friends lately, so here goes:

nikki at whimsy love. she has 98 followers (awe!!!) she is pretty much the craftiest person i know on the net (which she shares in tutorials), and she takes the cutest pictures of herself.

tiaras and tantrums. i wish i knew her name but i don't! she's a newbie to my blogroll. one of my new PSF buddies. she's tall and gorgeous with red hair and writes honestly about everything in her life.

elizabeth at six golden coins. everything about her blog just oozes calm. i like that.

sherryn at shezza's shennagans. i met sherryn on my bloggy trip to NY (in kansas). sherryn was at that time a part-time scrapbooking non-blogger, but as you can see, we turned her! she's just quite mental and we all love that.

angie at seven clown circus. for starters, she has five children. FIVE! and they are all gorgeous, especially the redheads. she hosts wordful wednesday, which is great for those who love to be wordy.

paula at paula's place of altered art. her blog is wonderfully colourful and she has an unflalingly sunny personality, and always leaves me the nicest comments!

michelle at one crafty mamna. she's a crafty mama just like me and has a daughter approaching those wonderful teenage years. she's also sneaky coz she posted a model wearing the pyjamas SHE was wearing for a blog post and i thought that was pretty cool.

lee at moms without blogs. i only just found her and i can't even remember how, but she rocks every way til tuesday. she just does.

now go spread the love girls - make it your first new year's resolution!!!

I just had to snort out loud when I read the reason you gave me an award. Not that I don't feel honored, because I do! But, seriously? You think I OOZE calm? Man, have I got you snowed. :) Thank you for my award. I'll have to ponder my eight recipients for a few days, then I'll post.
And happy new year! How fun to be the first to celebrate!
