I want to give a huge thanks to the lovely and talented illustrator Inkblot Miyazaki for nominating this little blog for the Versatile Blogger Award! It’s truly amazing to be included among so many multifaceted bloggers! When you have a chance, definitely check out The Particular Ones. Inkblot’s charming, Tim Burton-esque drawings will make you stop, smile and reflect on life.
The best part of being nominated is having the opportunity to shine the spotlight on my favourite bloggers. I nominate the following blogs that continue to make me laugh, inspire and motivate me through their writing, paintings, photography or other creative projects. Here they are in alphabetical order:

So I’m supposed to reveal stuff about myself here. Problem is, I really blubbered and spilled my guts in this post not too long ago. I hope it’s okay that instead of talking about myself, I wrote out summaries for the creators above to hopefully entice readers to click on the links and check out the wonderful blogs for themselves 🙂
I’m a little behind this week but Helping Mitch will return to its regular-ish schedule shortly. Okay back to scribbling!
