I recently received a message from Lora Fisher of FlairCreativ telling me she had a surprise for me. A few hours later, I received a wonderful message stating that I was one of FlairCreativ’s Social Sista Award winners! Wow, what an honour coming from a talent like Lora!
Lora, who calls Salem, Oregon home, is an accomplished writer, editor, artist, photographer, landscape designer, creative director and is owner of FlairCreativ. I am at a loss for words (which, doesn’t happen often) and feel so honoured that she chosen me as one of the recipients of the Social Sista Awards.
As part of being a recipient of this award, I have to pass this award on to five other Social Sistas, those who share their unique, creative, authentic voices to promote a creative and supportive online community.

Wow, what a fantastic way to start the day. This morning, I stumbled around, coffee cup in hand and peered into my inbox to find a message saying that the lovely and talented Constance Wallace akalegendsofgreenisle has nominated me for the Kreativ Blogger Award!
Constance who calls Georgia home, is not only an award-winning writer and poet; but is also working on obtaining her PhD in History. Her series Legends of Green Isle is a wonderfully crafted fantasy fiction series for young adults. I’m at a loss for words (which, trust me doesn’t happen often) and honoured that she has nominated me for this award….I haven’t stopped smiling since!
As part of being nominated for this award, I have to (1): nominate 6 others for the blog award, and (2) share 10 things that readers might not know about me. So, here we go:
My nominations, there are so many more that should be on this list, so please don’t feel bad if you’re not included! You’re all my favourites!
Wow, 2011 has been a year full of growth, creativity, challenges, gifts and acceptance. I have made some amazing friends, re-established old friendships, stepped back from unhealthy friendships and learned what matters to me the most. I have laughed until I cried, cried until I laughed and been amazed at the inner strength of those I love.
Here’s to hoping that 2012 will bring peace, healing, growth and happiness! Happy New Year’s to all of my friends & family, I am blessed beyond words to have you in my life.
