Reader Appreciation Award

Many thanks to Diane Hiller, who nominated Simplify2x for the Reader Appreciation Award! Diane writes the Pleasant Valley Sunday blog from Clarendon Hills, Illinois. Thanks, Diane!

Here are the blogs I’m nominating:

CandleOwlKnits — This is my daughter’s knitting blog! She is a sophomore in college and has been knitting since she was 9 years old, so she’s highly skilled at it. She’s also an excellent writer, and funny. If you want to buy some wonderful hand-knitted items, here is a link to her CandleOwlKnits Etsy store.

MillieOnHerWorld — I enjoy this blog because the author is waaay into crochet and makes all sorts of animals and other creatures…

The Thing About Joan — The tagline of Joan’s site is “…raising 3 kids and 1 puppy; desperately crafting to stay sane…” She sews, she bakes, she knits, she crochets, and she has lots of lovely ideas for enjoying her children.

Harrington Harmonies — Stephanie Harrington is a homeschooling military spouse with 3 children and “13 moves in 16 years.” Keeping it simple is important for her!

Light on Dark Water — Written by Maclin Horton, one of the founding editors of my favorite “earthy crunchy Catholic” magazine of the 1990s, Caelum et Terra. The magazine ceased publication in 1996, but I still have all my back issues.

Acton Institute’s PowerBlog — Lord Acton, the institute’s namesake, made the following famous statement: “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” The Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty promotes ” a free and virtuous society characterized by individual liberty and sustained by religious principles.”
