Having saved all these 13 wonderful  awards from a bunch of terrific bloggers for ages – they are finally getting the credit they deserve in this “Mega” post.

Here we go:

From Laurel on one of her of blogs Creations by Laurel –Rain Snow  we have received The Splash Award. What a cute award. Thanks Laurel! Laurel has several books that she has written one that is being featured here on Layers of Thought – Chasing Stardust

splashThe Splash Award is given to those blogs you find alluring, bewitching, impressive and inspiring.

This down to earth award from two bloggers Laurel from Obsessions and Compulsions and Alexia from Alexia’s Books and Such  is  fun. Thanks Laurel and Alexia! Alexia has a great mostly speculative fiction blog and has just had knee surgery. Stop by and say hello!

Melissa from Must Read Faster awarded me the 2009 Friendly Blogger Award  several months ago and gave it to me “just cuz’ ”.  Your a sweetie Melissa. Thank you! She has a general book blog but loves young adult the most. She was one of Layers of Thought’s first followers so will always be special.

Rachel of The Book Wars sent me the Heartfelt Award. This award is so cute. I love the way the little mouse peeks out of the cup. Thank you Rachel! Rachel is a cutie that has a young adult book blog which is awesome.

Do you reach for a cup of cocoa or tea when you're relaxing, seeking comfort, sharing a plate of cookies with family and friends? You know the feeling you get when you drink a yummy cup of cocoa, tea, or a hot toddy? That is what the Heartfelt Award is all about--feeling warm inside.

 

Missy from Missy’s Book Nook has awarded me with an award called Why Friends are Like Books. Thank You Missy! This is such a perfect award for book bloggers. Missy has a general fiction book blog where she also catalogs her life bringing in the music and movies from the time – mostly the 80’s. A nice diversion down memory lane since I was a late teen then.

Why friends are like books...

~ We never judge a book by it's cover. (Okay, we do, but only because we love us sum eye candy!! =)
~ Every book is different to each of us, in it's own special way and every book is special to us in every way.
~The variety in our books is the same in our friendship... we are all different, but together, we make up one hella'va a story!!!
~ We know that we can always count on a good book to make us feel better!! We call them keepers!
Those are just a few reasons why friends are like books...
I am glad that I happened upon you... just like so many of my books...
You will forever be on my Keeper Shelf!!!

Thank you for being my friend!!"

They are not interested in prizes or 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!

No worries darls! Congrats on all your awards. (But I'll just say my book's been accepted for representation--book deal to follow soon I hope. I hope with all my might!)

Shellie (Layers of Thought) said...

Rhiannon -
I was just reading you in google reader...
So sorry to jump the gun. It will be accepted I just know it!

Donna [Fantasy Dreamer's Ramblings] said...

Woa! Congratulations on the terrific blog awards! All them are well deserved. :)

Shellie (Layers of Thought) said...

Donna -
Thanks!
I've been feeling very neglectful as they have added up. Gosh I hope I have not lost any.
I will won't forget you gave me one of my first awards. :)

Lisa said...

Shellie, you are VERY WELCOME! You are amazing to have managed to keep track of all of those! Congrats on your awards, my friend. :0)

Creations by Laurel-Rain Snow said...

What a wonderful way to display the awards—in one gigantic post!

You are welcome, Shellie, and on that one award...don't remember which one, you were sharing stuff about yourself. It was great to learn more about you. I had no idea that you'd been a teacher. You also mentioned the Napa Valley and wine tasting. I was there this summer. I go to Arizona a lot, too.

Shellie (Layers of Thought) said...

Lisa -
I bet you thought I forgot all about the awards? I may have lost a few - I recall you giving me two? I have figured out a better system now so none should get lost in the future.

Anyways thanks the award and for being my friend. :)

Laurel -
Thank you!
I am from Napa. It is so beautiful there. I hope you enjoyed yourself. I'm not going to think about it too much or I will get homesick.

When you are in AZ we should get together.

Charlie said...

You've worked hard this year to make this blog a success, and the awards prove it. You (and JD) deserve every one of them.

I haven't seen the The Dragon's Loyalty Award and I think it's really neat. (That's how the intelligentsia talks: "Really neat.")

Shellie (Layers of Thought) said...

Charlie -
It keeps me going that's for sure - otherwise I would be bored silly.

We inteligisters talks alike. lol!

You will have an award coming from me soon. I just need to get my act together.
Thanks a bunch!

Jimmy Bastard said...

Shellie (Layers of Thought) said...

Thanks a bunch!
I hope your staying warm and dry there over the pond!
