Doreen, Diane Clancy and John Mora have all bestowed me with these three blog awards. Thank you. I have been remiss in not acknowledging their kind recognitions, and Miss Manners has been gently guilting me. Aaaaack. Before the internal pressure gets to be too bad and I look like some bad rendition of The Scream, I think it is time to say thank you and to pass on all three of these lovely awards to:

Art and Tea - Karen is a mixed media jewelry artist and tea sure to pop over for a soothing cuppa, but leave plenty of time for oohing and ahhing over her gorgeous beaded jewelry
Journeytime - Derick is a fellow seeker, and he blesses his readers with the gifts of his journey. I am simulatenously fascinated by and honored to be part of his journey
Kate Jobe - I met Kate over at the Mandala Oasis. I'm enjoying our co-creative artistic projects, but am even more impressed by her SoulSkins. I hope you go take a look at her stunning, one-of-a-kind-wearable art
Tomas Karkelas - his url says it all: trust light. Tomas writes about art as a healer. What more need I say?
Chewy - graphic designer, painter, haiku poet, mandala maker, and a blogger who returns your comments...i'd say ms chewy is a renaissance creative!
Rethaw - I love the tagline on David's blog -- we train ourselves not to look eventually we don't see - I still want to know how he does his abstract photography, but he is frustratingly mute on this topic. Go take a look and you'll see why I experience art envy.

Thank you--
To say that---"he blesses his readers with the gifts of his journey." is something that makes everything worthwhile--- but it it is I who feels that it is the blessing to be able to what i do.
always appreciate your visits and returning to see the amazing mandalas

Hi Sue,
Your art and blog is abundant in awards. Thank you kindly for thinking of me and passing on these wonderful awards. Your Bamboo Mandala, with it's sticks radiating out from the center, inspired my new Straw Mandala.

Wow! The light talks in your blog ,dear Sue O'Kieffe. I was sat back in awe by your magical Mandalas. Beauty silenced my writings with the vocabulary in hand - I bow to you, you work wonders. Thank you for the sharing the divine sparkles. You are worthy all the above awards and much more...thus when I grasped that you pass them on me it gave me a great shake.

...thank you!!!

I was feeling myself very-very sick currently but your gift made a miracle. I'm hard to write now, but my heart is jumping - maybe, my attempts weren't in wain. I greatly appreciate your coming to my blog and your soul uplifting feedback-the precious gift-the wonderful awards.
Just few minutes are left till the midnight, but the dawn is rapidly forthcoming and my pains step aside -THANK YOU!!!
