The last day of the year! I want to thank all by bloggbuddies for an inspirational year. Without readers a blog is just a blog, without comments a blog is boring. Without blogfriends cyberspace is just big and lonely! This heart is for all of you and thank you for being there! Hope to see a lot of you in the next year! This award I got from my dear friend Soulbrush! I guess you all know her blog, if not this is the perfect day to meet her! I´m not so good in placing these awards on my blog and following the rules, but I feel very honored and happy when I get one! The idea of having to pick people makes me very uncomfortable, I love all my readers and my favo bloggs so you are all nominated! Yesterday I received a wonderful gift from Lolo! Animal angel from the other side of the ocean and amazing artist! 3 wonderful cards. This one looks a lot like Sjimmie doesn´t it, except Sjimmie has no worry or fear. But I love these shy cats, the love they give in return when you take care of them is heartwarming! Sjimmie takes everything for granted, but yeah that´s the way it should be, not every cat is so fortunate. And these 2 mandalas! Aren´t they fabulous! You can order your own at her Etsy Shop, but I warn you it will be difficult to control yourself, they are all gorgeous! Thanks Lolo for these fabulous gifts! This mandala (by Studio Lolo) looks like a positive world to me, I hope your world will look like this the coming year! Love and peace and thanks to all of you!
