Attitude and Gratitude

Today I discovered that I had won an award!!  How cool is that?!  Dee nominated me for the Lemonade Stand Award.  Apparently, this is a highly sought out and coveted award bestowed upon bloggers that show great attitude and gratitude.  Thank you so much Dee!!

It is so nice to receive such recognition from a fellow blogger.  What makes receiving the Lemonade Stand Award really special is being nominated by someone as amazing as Dee.  If you are not already a regular follower of Dee's Doodles, you need to head over there as quick as you can (after you finish reading my blog..ha) to see what you've been missing.  I can not do her blog justice, so you'll just have to go see for yourself.

Now, I get to nominate ten blogs who I feel have great attitude and gratitude.  That is really difficult.  I feel that way about EVERY blog I follow.  I feel so blessed to have found this neighborhood of bloggers that I  consider friends.  Here are my nominees (in alphabetical order):

Lesly of Pickle Dish
Nina Lise of Mrs. Moen
Sherri of A Quilting Life
Victoria of Bumble Beans

These are the rules of accepting the award.
Put the Lemonade logo on your blog or within your post.
Nominate at least 10 blogs with great attitude or gratitude.
Link the nominees within your post.
Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

I dedicate this award to my daughter who always asks to make a Lemonade Stand in the summers, but who is always told no!!!  My daughter made this ipod case for Craft Hope:

We made sure the iTouch fits inside, and the earphones can be connected through the button hole.

The first one she made was a little too wide, so she kept that one for herself.  I'm thinking these will be fun to make as gifts to have on hand.

Have an amazing day!!


  1. Thanks for the the Ipod case too!

  2. Congrats Rene'! Now I have more blogs to follow! Yay!

  3. Congratulations Rene! What a great award :) I love the fact that you and your daughter are involved in the craft hope project - the iTouch/iPod case is fabulous! I wish I were closer to O-town, I'd join the Modern Quilt Guild in a heartbeat - what great initiative you have (and a big heart too)

  4. Congratulations on the award and thank you for the thoughtful nomination.

  5. Congratulations, Rene, and thanks for nominating me!

  6. Congratulations to you, Rene', and thank you for the nomination. It's been great fun getting to "know" you!

  7. Nice job on the ipod case, Wow!

    Rene, thank you so much for nominating my blog for the Attitude/Gratitude Award. I'm thrilled you think my blog is deserving. Not very long after I started my blog I was nominated for a blog award and turned it down, mainly because I was overwhelmed with just keeping my blog up and running. Since then I've decided not to accept any awards because I didn't want to hurt the feelings of the folks who nominated me but I turned down.....does that make sense? But I did want you to know I was happy to be considered deserving.

  8. Thanks so much for the award nomination, Rene'! It's nice to be included among such a distinguished group!

  9. thanks so much rene! the ipod case is great! you must have so much fun creating with your daughter! (are you the rene that bought my quilt on craft hope?)
