BLOG 6 Award: Late Addition to the List

By popular demand, there is a write in addition to the BLOG 5 awards .... one for humor. I suppose that makes it the BLOG 6 awards, but what's a girl to do? And so we add one more award to the list. I noted two blogs for their sense of humor, and thus I'm going to award them both with this additional award. Note the gnome. Yes the graphic was decided by the write in co-host .... ahem... Christine who decided that we had forgotten a category. 

So without further ado, I give two more blogs the honor of the humor award: Beadsong Jewelry and Life on Peanut Layne. I've already mentioned them both, and noted their wicked sense of humor. But in case you missed it ....

Peanut Layne is one of the most hilarious writers I've come across in awhile. I am usually laughing and snorting over my cup of tea on Saturday mornings with the rest of my family wanting to hear what's up. The last time it was this post on grocery stores. Her motto "providing laughter, entertainment and permanent birth control to the entire neighborhood." She had me on the floor laughing with a post on come backs for dumb questions people ask about why she had so many kids.

One blog that gives me constant inspiration is Beadsong Jewelry. Bobbie's work is beautiful, but she is also one of the hardest working artists out there. She has been 'on the road' to bead shows for months, and living through disastrous circumstances, hot as the 'hinges of hell' weather, and taking it all in stride. Her stamina is awe inspiring. She has such a wonderful outlook on this crazy beady world, and a wicked sense of humor that seems to keep her going. A recent post where she is passing on the honor of a blogger award shows her quirky side, and apparently just how much she hates to hem a pair of pants. Her list of bead artists is well worth a look. Check it out.

For the rest of the awards, just scroll down to yesterday's post.

Congratulations to the recipient of the Humor Award!
I do admire people who can make me smile or even laugh with their blog posts, because mostly I don't get jokes ;-)

Thank you so much for picking me! I'm so shocked and honored that you picked me for the humor and journalistic awards! I just added a couple of links to your blog on my blog. I haven't had a chance to pay the awards forward yet. My cold has kind of taken over my body, but thank you again!

Peanut Layne turned me on to your site and now I'm just lying in a pile of my own drool looking at your gorgeous beadwork. Sigh. If only I was creative. Or crafty. Or not in a sleep deprivation induced coma....
