I'd like to thank....

Okay, I won't lie. I'm honoured. I'm a bit overwhelmed. (I hope this shade of flushed pink is flattering. Does my gown make my ass look fat?)

I was awarded yesterday with an "Artsy Fartsy" award. (I'm calling it that because I can't actually read what it says on it.) It was shocking to say the least. For those who don't know, I am a photographer in the making.

I'd like to thank my mom for giving me the "shutter" bug. For many years my brothers and I were the victims of her relentless snapping and clicking. I'd like her to know that I forgive her for the trauma. My counsellor says he feels I'm managing well and I'm now ready to face the world.

I'd like to thank my husband for all of his (sniffle, sniffle) support over the years. He has only choked on one camera bill, and has stayed quiet, with only a few big fat tears, at the rest. Now THAT is love.

I'd like to thank my children. They said good-bye to their mother a few years ago. They accepted losing me to the computer while I edit pictures, create DVDs and burn discs. They were my unwilling victims for a time, while I learned how to use my fancy camera.

I'd like to thank Bradie for this incredible honour! I didn't even know I had been nominated! Just for that, and for all of Matt's help with these awesome headers on my sites, I would like to offer you one family sitting, free off charge! Let me know when you are available!

To all my devoted fans (weep) I thank you.

I will be giving this award to five other very deserving people. Stay tuned, as I will give out one per day. This gives you the opportunity to invite me to your best posts. If you want to win this most coveted award, leave comments directing me to your blog!

Stay tuned..... The winners are....

Oh my goodness. Your acceptance speech brought tears to my eyes. The good I'm dying laughing kind. I love awards, but somehow I just don't think I'm artsy fartsy. More like never learns her lessony. :) Your photos are amazing!

P.S. Your comments on my blog are the best.

Waaa-haaa-haaa! I am so proud of you. But you forgot to thank the academy. I don't know why, or what academy that would be. It's just that everybody else thanks the academy. Tut tut. But it's funny enough to make me wish I were a blogger so that I too could win an award. Sigh. Nice work, Miss Artsy Fartsy 2008. You are in a class all your own.
