Poster Sketch: The Sunshine Award

Earlier this month I was treated to the Sunshine Award for inspiring bloggers, courtesy of Carolyn Good of 2 Good Claymates. It’s always exciting to receive an award from another blogger, and not only because of the compliment behind it. Following the trail of links left by each award is a great way to find new and interesting blogs to read and enjoy.

The rules for accepting the Sunshine Award are:
- Put the logo on your blog or within your post.
- Pass the award onto 12 bloggers.
- Link the nominees within your post.
- Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
- Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

I also love blog awards because it gives me a chance to have a good look at my reading list, visit my favorite blogs, and trim those that seem to be forgotten. These are some of the blogs that really stand out in the crowd:

Jan Roger’s Blog for Mixed Media Art
