A misunderstanding....

Strap yourselves in guys.....

Yesterday I got an email alerting me to the fact that this blog has been nominated for an award over at Poppytalk - a great fun design blog out of Canada.

Because I didn't want to appear to be a Mrs Big head , I figured I would just let it sail on by......BUT after a few emails this morning, apparently my reluctance to blog about it just might be considered to be a lack of gratitude...or even a bit of Jodie is so far up herself she has disappeared up her own backside....

So, here I am talking talking loudly out my backside to say....here is the dealio if you want to vote and to the person who thought I belonged in such esteemed company , I thank you from the bottom of my heart - or is that the heart of my bottom?

Hard to tell from in here.......

(and of course I am thrilled but its all just a bit embarrassment you know)

  3. Good luck - or should I say bottoms up and may I say the view from up here is fabulous.
    Seriously I think that you are one of the most clever crafters, that takes time out to share ideas and time with the rest of us and so down to earth. Congrats

  4. I know how you must feel about it all but you cannot escape the fact that you are one talented lady and your blog is a gem! So smile sweetly and thank everyone who recognises how special you are and clearly thinks the same way I do!!!
    (I voted for you too)
    Can't wait to see the next Ernst installment......

  5. Can I say that any woman who encourages other women to embroider PUCK You - yes that is a P - on printed labels which are stitched onto felt boxes for her daughters wardrobe- deserves a vote. So one vote to the creator of Summer Heights High and one vote to you!

    And if you're worried about looking up-yourself, fear not, some of the other nominees admitted to nominating THEMSELVES. So getting us to vote is nuthin'!
