It's been exactly a month since I created my blog(heeyyyy!). And to receive an award from a sweet L'tl Girl is something I hadnot imagined(pause...pondering). As I wrote to her(in honor of receiving this award) I don't consider this a silly feat(very earnest). Everyone loves to be appreciated!(universal truth...even Hitler wanted to be appreciated #*@#... Have I gone nuts???)

I am truly delighted & thank you for considering me worthy of it:) Hugs.

Now this is quite a tough give away this award to 7 wonderful people. (Like Pay It Foward...hmmm)

#1. Manoj.C.T(CT) for he is the one who brought me to blogging. His blog inspired me to create my own blog. For being a spirited, conscientious & lively person; who has always been a brother in need(during my Victorian days...A-Zones & Interzones...nostalgic).

#2. Soulbrush is rightly termed so! She's the soul of art. An versatile artist, an excellent motivator, a true human being and a lovely friend. She's one of my new blogger friends who keeps in touch with me through mails too;always motivating. I have ne'er found anyone so lively, versatile & active at this age too. You are role model!(I knw you've received so many awards...This is the first from me:))

#3. Teri- if soul is the soul of art, Teri is the body...embodiment of art! I have never seen anyone as good as Teri in watercolors. She's the proud founder of Cactus Monday. Soul & Teri are my greatest motivators in art here in bloggyland. To speak on all these great personalities is not speaking enough(sigh).

#4. Scrawler is one of my friends from College(good ol' Victorian days). She, apart from CT, is another inspiration for my blogging. She induces goodwill. I was surprised to find her writing brilliantly(of which I was unaware of...a new dimension!).

#5. Lynn for her simplicity and the wonderful quilts of which she is the proud owner of. I have just started getting to know her & I think we'll have a wonderful time together.

#6. Studio Lolo - I always feel wonderful at your door with crow for my company:) I love your artworks and photos. A new friend again!

#7. Aniket for being a humorous, poetic & a great commenting companion. I know you have already received this award but my award list willnot be complete without your name:) So please bear with me.

From what I understand you've to copy the awards to your blog & then give it to 7 others...all this depends on whether you want to(as the l'tl girl says)

Love ya folks!
Have a Happy Award Nite!

C ya...n Take care.

ShantanuDas said...

hmmm... since you said u r here for one month only and yet you got an award!

I came and saw and agreed!!-- without reading though.. I agreeed because you should get an award for the Fantastic, Template.. it made my morning BRIGHT and Flowery, Leafy.. wht a combination of Brown (for want of my knowledge of different shades of colours- I know only the primary ones !) background and prints..

Definitely the print would make a prettty bedcover !! !

will come bak later to read... gtg now.

Mahesh Sindbandge said...

Hmmmm so you distribute awards too :)

Deepa Gopal said...

Soul, Thanks & hugs...can't say anything more:)

Aniket, full-circle it is! But I had to give it you. I would have loved to give it L'tl Girl as well for I love her writing too. But I thought I'll create something(as you suggested once) for her sometime in the future.
I don't mind(I very well understand) for not starting the chain again:)

Lynn, Mention not for I am honored to know you as well.
