Some exciting news and an Award xxx

Evening all

A late wee post from me! I've been getting all the Dream Valley Challenge blog up and running and informing my fab New TEAM!! Thanks girls for wanting to be part of this wee adventure of mine! You can check out all my fab wee team here, they are a great bunch of lovely craft mad ladies! Perfect!

So that was my exciting news, but remember that you only have till Sunday to get your taste of the first Challenge, so please all join in!!

One bad thing I found was having to pick my team and even harder was telling people they didn't make it! I emailed almost everyone to tell them sorry but after some very horrible harsh message I gave up! Some people are very nasty, its only a challenge blog not some big Craft Company! I picked people that were regular blogger who tried something new, not just cards and also used Mr Linky when it got to hard to pick! I also picked a few newbies to give everyone a chance! I'm sorry if you weren't picked but please don't send me emails saying my "Challenge blog will fail without you on it"!!


Ok so on a happier note, I got some wee award form some fabby bloggers

The lovely Fiona gave me this wee award, as Mel has already awarded me this wee Love Award I thought that only best to give it to everyone! All you fab bloggers who leave me fab messages that make me smile, laugh and feel good about my creation's!!

This second award came from Jack, thanks honey


Now this wee award has some conditions

1. Make a post linking back to the person who gave you the award!
2. Share 7 random things about yourself
3. Award 7 bloggers with this award
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them they've won the award.

So 7 random things
  1. I love painting my nails and always have them really funky!
  2. I have a strange obsession with "hoodies", even before they were hoodies
  3. I adore reading, especially a good Dean Koontz
  4. I have a large 4ft bear named Bob that sits at the side of my bed
  5. I love camping
  6. I want a VW Camper van ...... please
  7. I would rather watch a movie before tv programmes
So now to pass it on to 7 other bloggers
Hee, so many of you deserve the award!You are all a talented bunch out there with great help and advice! Thanks for putting up with me!

Off to check my emails and then grab my book, poor hubby has been asleep since 10! So tired my poor hubby, working so hard! Love you Frazer!

Night all

Good lord Melly, I cannot believe people can be so blinkin horrid! Seems you chose NOT to have the right people on your team if that was their attitude.

Thanks for letting me be part of your lovely new venture.

Hugs

Terrible to hear people are sending you nasty messages. Don't let them get you down! You obviously made the right choice not selecting them for the DT. Can't thank you enough for giving me the opportunity! Look forward to working with you!

Hugs

Keep your chin up girl and don't mind those ninny muggin's :) I'm so honored you chose me to be a part of your challenge blog! This is a first for me and by the looks of everyone else's creative minds I am feeling a little intimidated, inspired and SO SUPER EXCITED!

Blessings,
Woman

Hi Melly

I wish you luck and fun with your new DT and challenge blog. To bad that some people send you nasty messages.
Thank you very much for the award, I appreciate it very much, but I don't put it on my blog, simply because it cost me to much time (I have to little tim in a day ;-)). That time I want to use to crafting and leave messages ad blogs.
hugs Linda

Oh my goodness, I really can't believe how vindictive some people can be. It seems you've handled it well and it's gonna be fab!

Thanks for the award, Huni. I really appreciate it and will try to get it on my blog soon. Take care, Susie x

Jennie said...

Hi Melly. Congrats on your two awards. Well deserved. Can't believe how you have been treated. As you say this is something you wanted to do and not for any company and it should be fun and enjoyable. Bet you're glad you didn't pick them. Well done on getting your DT picked and look forward to your first challenge. Take Care. Donna

I love hoodies too! Used to love wearing them and still own a few but somehow I always feel like a thug when I am wearing one now lol

Khristen said...

Well, people like that shouldn't be on any design team anywhere, with an attitude like that! I am blessed to receive this opportunity, thank you for the awesome opportunity! Can't wait to get started :)

Hey Mel,

I came across this blog post this morning in my blog world travels and I thought you'd be encouraged by her words. I know I was :) http://www.thestoriesofa2z.com/2011/02/power-of-hurtful-words-commentary-on.html

First of all, congrats on your new venture!! It sounds like a lot of fun! Secondly, how pathetic are some people??!!?? I agree with some other commentors that you definitely picked the right people NOT to be part of the fun because with attitudes like that.....who needs 'em!! Have a great time with your new DT and Challenge Blog!
