Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
Presenting a new award!

Those of you who have followed me for a while know that I started this blog with a commitment to you that I would always offer my files and project tutorials for free.  I feel very strong about that commitment, and I particularly admire other bloggers who feel the same way.  For us, our reward is in knowing that our work is used and appreciated by others, and we get that mostly through comments on our blogs and emails from our followers. That doesn't mean that we don't also appreciate an occasional shout-out!  I know personally that receiving a mention or award from another blogger means the world to me and totally makes my day!

I've been lucky enough to be honored several times by other bloggers' awards, and I wanted to pay it forward and create an award of my own - with a bit of a twist. So...

Hear Ye! Hear Ye!  A Royal Proclamation!
On this date, Friday the 2nd of April in the year 2010, I hereby create this award for all Crafting Queens or Kings!  To be crowned, a blogger or web site owner must share files, templates or tutorials free of charge, and must do so equally for all of the loyal subjects in Blogdom (ie. no "members only" or paid membership blogs, please).  Blogs who sell things are OK, too, as long as they offer something crafty and free on a fairly regular basis.  To crown someone, leave them a comment or send an email directing them to your blog to pick up their crown.

Receivers of the award must pay it forward to at least one other crafty web site or blog, and should link back to the site that crowned them.  If you've been crowned, please send an email to me at, along with your web or blog address and the website of whoever crowned you, so I can list you as a Royal Blogger.  (If you need the "King" version of the award, let me know and I'll email it to you.)

I hope you will proudly display this award on your site, and I thank you for being such a benevolent Queen or King who is so generous to your loyal subjects!

And now for the first crowning ceremony, I would like to send you to the following Blogdoms:
Audrey - Cute and Some
Cheryl - Cheryl's Window
Crystal - Design Create Inspire
Elizabeth - 217Creations
Pam - TheBugBytes
Sheila - She's A Sassy Lady

Be sure to be a good royal subject and leave them a comment when you visit, so they know how much you appreciate them!

Cricut Kisses and Crafty Wishes!
