Crush Post: Blog Awards AKA Chain Mail Time!

Hey darlings! I've survived my parties, break ups, muck up days, end of school etc etc etc and it was a great time, a sad time, and a happy time. I'm gushed up over my work colleagues and my palsies, and can really see that all good things must come to an end for realsa at the moment.

I've returned refreshed and have found so many lovely comments and gush over here at the Crafty Adventures HQ! Thank you to darling Karen @ Bobbins and Bombshells for this lovely award!

Karen, I loved this photo so had to take this one, thank you so much! Also, how darling is the pin up girl sewing her skirt? It's from Karen's blog, you should totally go and check it out! I love the old pin up girls, my Husbie has several pics saved (he says for his tattoo!) and only collects the platinums because they are like me! Cuteness!

Anyways, I'd like to pass this 'Divine' Award on to a few peeps as well, and darlings, don't worry about passing this on if you don't feel like it! I sometimes feel awards are borderline chain mail, but love that it's all about crushing on fellow bloggers, and you all know I love a bit of gush:
