My sweet friend, Clara of MimiKattini bestowed this sweet little honor on me... the Smile award! THANK YOU Clara! You have such a sweet spirit and always cheer me up. You inspire me to be a better person through the Boutique Angels by being such a cheerful and motivating leader.

Okay, so here are the CHARACTERISTICS for the SMILE award;
1. Must display a cheerful attitude.
2. Must love one another.
3. Must make mistakes.
4. Must learn from others.
5. Must be a positive contributor to blog world.
6. Must love life.
7. Must love kids.

And, well every thing has these are the RULES for the SMILE award:

1. The recipient must link back to the award’s creator.
2. You must post these rules if you receive the award.
3. You must choose 5 people to receive the award after receiving it yourself.
4. You must fit the characteristics of the recipient of the award.
5. You must post the characteristics of a recipient.
6. You must create a post sharing your win with others.
7. You must thank your giver.

AND, now the award goes to:
Amy of Tote and Tee - she is the only other person in the world besides me who loves Mondays. She inspires me to always be productive even if she doesn't realize she does. She is just a motivated person and it really shows.
Toni of Toni Hamel Designs - a fellow Louisiana girl who has such talent. Great designs, wonderful photography skills - I wanna be like her when I grow up.
Karen of The Sweetest Thing Photography - This has got to be one of the sweetest ladies on the Earth. Her kids are just gorgeous - her photography is amazing - and she just always has something nice to say to everyone. She works with so many different designers but always shows our creations off wonderfully.
Jenny of Fabric Bliss - this woman loves fabric even more than me and that is saying something. I absolutely laugh out loud with every newsletter I receive from her. She speaks to me and really has my same sense of humor. I wish I could write like her - honestly - it just comes across as if she is standing right there with you having a conversation. If you aren't on her newsletter list then you should be.
Susan of My Sweet Imaginations - she is an amazingly talented children's artist, but more importantly she has given of herself and her talent to help the Boutique Angels. Her art always graces each of our auctions when we are having a launch. I haven't seen her around the Boutique Community much lately but she always brings a smile to my face with her grace and generosity.
