An award and a prize

I received two lovely surprises this week. The first was a 'nice matters award' from the lovely Judy of Red velvet fame. The words on Judy's blog say "This award will be awarded to those that are just nice people , good blog friends and those that inspire good feelings and inspiration! Those that care about others that are there to lend support or those that are just a positive influence in our blogging world!"
It was an honour to receive this from Judy, as she would have been one of my recipients.
There are many people I would love to give this award to, some are already on Judy's list, Marie, Julie, Megan and Karen, so I will choose 7 other people.
Ursula , Judy , Katie , Nina , Michelle , Jo and Sharon .
These are all people who have given me so much inspiration in one form or other along the way. There are so many more I would love to include, but I have to leave some for the other people on my list to nominate.

The second surprise was this lovely package I received from Ursula . I won the competition on her blog. Ursula very generously gave away three packages of goodies she bought on her recent overseas trip. Ursula is the organizer of our ABRR and is doing a magnificent job of co-ordinating everything, so far the RR is going like clockwork. The quality of work being produced by the participants is phenomenal. Unfortunately we can't show you until the end of next year when all our books return to their homes.

What a well deserved award Ro - it is so nice to receive something in the mail other than a bill, isn't it! Congratulations.

Ro, thank you for the "Nice Matters" award. I agree that nice always matters and you are one of the nicest and most encouraging people on the net. Since the first time our paths crossed (online) you have been there for me. And to others I will admit that Ro is the only one to whom I tell my secrets. I trust her with my heart. So back at you, good woman. And thanks again.

Congrats Ro! So well deserved. You've always been so nice and supportive to me so I will take this opportunity to thank you for that.:)

Have a nice weekend.xo

Congratulations Ro - and I would pick you too. I must work up the courage to pick just 7 people today, or tomorrow.

Lovely goodies from Ursula too.

Hi Ro, I have had so much fun catching up on your blog. You are so talented, and diverse in your talents. Your work has such vibrancy. And as I have said before I'd love to come and have a play in your studio, it looks great!
Well done on the Nice Matters Award and thank you for mine, I certainly would have chosen you.
I look forward to seeing your creations with the goodies in your prize package. Ux
