Starting new trends....

I don't know if I have ever technically started a trend, and I am also unsure about whether I am personally trendy. However, I do certainly believe that my blog is trendy. It's cute, it has a great layout with matching graphics, and it covers a wide variety of topics, thus reaching out to a wide variety of readers. Trendy!

Two of my favorite bloggers, Neel over at Being Zara & Zidan and The Mommy over at Twenty Little Toes, have both given me a very prestigious blog award: The Trendy Treehouse Trendy Blog Award! WOW! It's such a great award, and I'm honored to think that these 2 ladies both think I deserve it. Many thanks to both of you!


I now have to share this with 10 trendy bloggers. That's a lot.... How about 5? Okay? Okay.

1. Natasha over at 5 Minutes Just for Me

2. Amy over at Coffee Lovin Mom

3. Morgan over at Dare You to Move

4. Cherees over at Our New Life

5. Bec over at the iheart blog

And I'll end with some photos for Macro Friday, which is run by Laura over at Blogging from Bolivia. This is my entry:

And this is pretty little collage I made as I was editing this photo:

And a quick note: Yes, I know that all of my pictures are cut off on the right side. I am working on fixing that, because I really want to keep my 3 column layout. But I am busy today with visiting family and then dress-shopping for a wedding next weekend. For now, please click on my pictures to see them full-size.

UPDATE: I think I may have fixed the issue with my photos being cut off. If you are still seeing cut off images, let me know. Because my layout has been sized according to my screen size, it may look different on your screen. As a general rule of thumb for all blogs though, you should always click on photos to see them full-size.

Serline said...

Gorgeous macro and variety of processing. The petals remind me of apple crisps ;-)

Sam said...

Hi Amy! Congratulations on your award too!! You are so deserving! I envy your photgraphy skills!! :)

The macro entry are amazing! We can now see the uncut version too when clicked on it. It's gone in my favourite pics folder!

So pretty! The color is great and the sharpness is spot on! I love the collage as well!
I agree with Serline, they remind me of dried apples as well. :)

Bec said...

Thanks for the award ;)

Cherees said...

Congrats on getting the award and Thank you for passing it along to me!! I need to post the other one you gave me too. I will try and get to them this week.

Jamie H said...

Great photo and I live the edits you did to it!

Laura said...

Beautiful! I love the color and how crisp it is! Gorgeous shot as usual! :)

The Mommy said...

Oh I totally missed this post for some reason! Yes, your blog is truly trendy because you did start the CSS trend :)
I love your shot! I was almost going to ask you what kind of macro lense you use! It looks like a semi-dried flower because it's crisp but still retains the beautiful color!

Natasha said...

You are so sweet giving me this award-thank you! I am so sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. My son has been sick with tonsillitis and I have been nursing him and working a little bit too. Crazy!

Thanks again!

Best wishes,
