An Award for me?

~Jan Thomason has presented me with a unusual and hilarious award! The FIRST EVER CREATIVE SNIT AWARD!!!!!!!!Unlike many other blogging awards, THIS award requires much thoughtful deliberation and strict adherence to the following CREATIVE SNIT AWARD criteria.
~This award shall be presented only to worthy artists who have shown evidence of being in a creative snit.
(I've copied and pasted most of this info from Jan's site to better explain)
The definition of snit: snit - noun.
a state of agitated irritation; "she was in a snit.". However, don't you agree CREATIVE SNIT requires a somewhat different definition?
....creative snit - noun. a state of creative chaos, creative frustration, or a state of obsessive creativity: "she was in a creative snit.".
~ Therefore, worthy recipients of this prestigious award should demonstrate one or more of the following criteria:
***1) photos of their chaotic creative studio spaces see this post for pic of my "creative station"
***2) reports of staying up till the wee hours of the morning while consuming large amounts of coffee and/or chocolate in order to finish a swap or prepare for a show. ( yes I am up late usually till 2am! but instead drinking something alchoholic and eating what ever looks good.)

***3) documented frustration over the creative process. (all the time!)
***4) evidence of a large quantity of art created over a small period of time. (see any post)
***5) photos of the recipient at vendor night at any art retreat because it goes without saying that ALL attendees at such events are either in, or will soon be, in a creative snit. (again, here at the scrapbook retreat!)
***6) witnessing the recipient in a SNIT at a CREATIVE EVENT! (ask anyone who's seen me teach, host a crop, or work my table at a boutique!)

~~~So I am passing on this wonderfully humorous award to the following for their undying passion to add "just one more thing" on their projects only to finally fall asleep with glue on their pants and glitter in their hair!
  1. Sheri
  2. Laurie
  3. Jessica
  4. Laura
  5. Susan

    And, girls, you keep this award going by awarding it to those artists that you know that would get a kick out of it.........and be deserving at the same time!)

Hey Michele...Thanks for the award! I am so honored and encouraged to know that so many others are living the creative chaos life I embody! You were so sweet to think of me. I guess my messy studio pix put me in the running, eh? I always say, "Tidy house, idle mind!" No offense to all the neatniks out there...tidy just doesn't work for me and my family!
I'm off to NYC to teach my Glitter-ween Workshop at Tinsel Trading Company this morning. Should be such fun!
Have a great weekend!
