Very Inspiring Blog Award


This nice award comes from Brandy, a fellow blogger I met during the April A-Z Blog Challenge.  Bridge and Beyond was not in that challenge, but my Travel Blog, Oozing Out my Ears, and Flat Stanley blogs were all part of that month long challenge.  The challenge was to blog everyday but Sunday in alphabetical order AND visit at least 5 blogs daily.  Though Bridge and Beyond weren't part of the challenge I did blog about charity with a link here, and there were a few other occasions when visiting blogs that had crafters, or people interesting in doing for others when I thought it appropriate to say something about Bridge and Beyond.  And so, the word did spread a bit more to some new folks.  We had some visitors here, we gained a few new followers....all good!

So, first let me say Thank you to Brandy who once she selected Bridge and Beyond to pass the award onto, wrote a very nice paragraph on her blog helping us spread the word to her readers.

The rules of the award are:
  1. Display the award, it's now listed in the tab across the top of the blog that says blog awards.  There's so much on this blog, I removed the badges from the side bars some time back.
  2. Link Back to the person who awarded you.  Brandy's name is a link taking you to her blog, as is the award on the tab mentioned above.
  3. State 7 things about yourself (later)
  4. Nominate 15 blogs for the award (will work on this after the challenge, even though you're reading this in May after the challenge...I wrote and scheduled this post back on April 25th, with still catch up needed on all my blogs etc)
7 things about myself:
  • I make a really good Lemon Drop Martini
  • I like doing yard work, but find it harder to do now with age, and arthritis; so do far less then I used to
  • I wish my Darling Daughter didn't live so far away and we could see each other more often
  • I don't like fish, though I do eat tuna salad
  • I've worn glasses since I was in the 4th grade, and started wearing tri-focals about 15 years ago
  • I dislike winter immensely, and with each year am more impatient for spring
  • I'm not an animal lover.  In fact, I have a fear of many.

All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.


  1. Three cheers to Brandy for seeing the good in our group and three cheers to you Sandy and to all our terrific donators and commentors without all of these wonderful folks Bridge and Beyond would not be the AWESOME group that it is! GREAT JOB EVERYONE!!!

  2. Congratulations! I'm happy to see your work acknowledged.

    WELL DESERVED SANDY. Happy that Bridge and Beyond has been recognized as a group that helps so many people.Glad to do what little I can to help this group.Sandy you should be very proud of all that you and your friends have accomplished over the years. Congratulations.

  4. I am pleased, and Sally I couldn't have said it better myself, we are all such a team. The power of one is indeed awesome and multiplied by all the helping hands.

  5. Lovely! Interestingly enough, I too have been wearing glasses since the 4th grade!

    Keep up the incredible work - it must be difficult to knit/crochet with arthritis in your hands :(


  6. What a fantastic award! You deserve it, I know how many hours must go in to your blogs. I can't even keep with the single one I have, laziness I suppose.

  7. Congrats on the award!

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
