  1. Thanks so much for thinking of me!!!!

    I, too, am away from all of my family and friends. Crocheting really gives me something to do, that makes me feel very productive and useful. Also, I love sending things back home. :)

  2. Hey Shanti! Thanks so much for the award! It was very sweet of you and I am very flattered. Unfortunately, my plate is full with other things and I won't have time to fulfill the requirements.

    Thanks again though! :) It did make me smile!

  3. Hi Shanti!

    I am so happy the award made you smile and happy (just my idea of an great award!!), and I loved reading the 7things of you!

    Have a happy and sunny (and WARMER SOON, I do not like cold either!) start to your 2011!

    See you here and my blog soon again!


  4. Squeeek! Thankyou for thinking of me, I am honoured to find my name amongst such illustrious others. *grin*

  5. Yay!! Thanks for thinking of me :-) Your blog is indeed very lovely and worthy of such an award! x x

  6. Hello Shanti - what a lovely blog you have! :) Thank you very much for the award! I do already have an "about me" section on my blog so I hope that this will suffice for the criteria for your award :) Thank you again for thinking of me and have a lovely day! xxx

  7. That is so awesome, congratulations on your award.

  8. Ohhh, do the 15 you chose get the Stylish Blogger Award, too? I didn't know! :) Very cool. So, I need to do the same with the 7 things and 15 blogs?

  9. Dear Shanti, love your blog and your sweet personality. I've added your blog link on my list of favorites that I visit ever day. See you here and on Rav... ((hugs)) Teresa

  10. Thank you for your award!! I'm in doub tto put some serious stuff on there or some silly /embarrasing stuff about me. :)

  11. Alright, I fulfilled the requirements! Thanks, again!

    Yes, my belly was very cold! The actual belly shots didn't take very long. We were only out there for about half an hour total... I really wanted my friend to do our pictures, it just ended up snowing almost two feet the day after Christmas. By the time we took the pictures, it had warmed up a lot, but the snow was still everywhere. Made for a nice background, though! :)

  12. Thanks so much for thinking of me with this award! I'll try to do this soon! :)

  13. Hi Shanti. Made me so happy that you shared this award with me and Tangled Happy! Thank you. I will be passing this along tomorrow. Sara :)
