Bloggy Oscars...if you will.

Picture this with me, for a moment... if you will.

I'll arrive in this....

I'll be wearing this....
And these....

And these....

And I'll have my hair and make up done, of course!

And when my blog is called....
Jen's Ink Pen
I'll go up to accept my awards!
Music....Applause...Cheering....More Applause!

This award was given to me by Gabe over at In the Details.
I have really enjoyed getting to know her. She has a fabulous sense of humor...and I see so much of myself and my life in her posts.
Thanks so much, Gabe!
This award was given to me by Melissa over at Miss Sew & So. I have recently gotten to know her and enjoy her witty posts and beautiful photos. She is blogging in the UK...I like to imagine her accent while reading her blog! Strangely enough, I think it sounds Australian. Right?
Thanks so much, Melissa!

And at last  I'll say....in the words of Sally Feild,
"You like me. You really, really like me!"
(whispers, and lots and lots of laughing!)
I am cracking up myself, here!

Seriously. I am so honored to have received 2 blog awards on Sunday! My very first ones.
It means a lot to me that someone out there finds my little blog interesting enough to read....much less worthy of any awards. I have only been at this for a short time, but  I have really enjoyed the creative side of blogging...and being able to express myself and share a little of my life through my posts.  Getting to know so many of you and looking into your lives has been the best part. I am excited each day to see what you all have to "show and tell."  
So now I am passing on both of these awards to the women behind these fabulous blogs. Thanks for commenting on my blog and giving me the encouragement to keep on posting. It is so much more fun to blog when I know someone will be reading.  Agree?
Now on to announce the award recipients.....in no particular order.
If you have them already...take them again! I've never seen anyone turn down a second Oscar!
Cathy M......Checkitoff
Kerri......The Pleasures of my Life
Kelly....Out of Colorado
Laura....The Bignell Family
Stacey.......McCrakens x 4
Melissa....Race Cars and Ruby Slippers
Pam.....Views from my Kitchen Sink
Alissa.....33 Shades of Green
Bridget.....Among the Chaos
Jen.....Denton Sanitorium 
Melissa.....Miss Sew & So 
Gabe.....In the Details.
Liz...Savvy Seasons by Liz

So now....go find a pretty dress, and some fancy jewelery, and a snazzy limo....and prepare your speech!
Have a great day!

Make sure to post these awards on your blog.....then pass one of these awards on to 10 or so other bloggers that you believe are so deserving. Don't forget to leave them a comment to let them know.
