Sunshine Tuesday!!

I almost wrote MONDAY, but realized quickly that I skipped a day of blogging. I apologize to anyone who was on pins and needles waiting to hear from me (as if!!)
BUT while I was gone, I got an award!!!!!!

Holly, of Holly's Folly gave me a Sunshine Award!


I think it's because I'm always complaining about the weather this winter, wishing it was sunny! (actually it was very nice of her and she said sweet things about me on her blog. Go check it out! She's a glass beadmaker AND designs rubber stamps that can be used in cookie decorating! How cool is that??!!)

Here are the details about this award... (and if you are one of the winners of the award, here's the scoop)

Here are the rules, so please pass this award along….
The rules for accepting the Sunshine Award are:
- Put the logo on your blog or within your post.
- Pass the award onto 12 bloggers.
- Link the nominees within your post.
- Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
- Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.


As a result of receiving this award, I'm supposed to award it to 12 more people. OH NO! 12??!!!

I don't even read 12 blogs!!!!! But I will do my best to give you links to the blogs I DO read. They are a variety of things... most of them not bead oriented.

1. Dooalot - My friend from college, Laura has a wonderful blog about her life. Sometimes it's memories, sometimes day-to-day, sometimes it's her Couch to 5K stories. She's a great writer and always makes me smile (which I thought appropriate for the whole sunshine thing)

2. Reganleigh - An aspiring author, who is also a friend of mine. You never know what you're going to find in reading her blog. Sometimes it's writer-oriented... sometimes it's music....sometimes it's just fun. BUT on the site there is a trailer (like a movie trailer) for her first novel. She is in the final editing process then looking for a publisher. I've read the book and it is FANTASTIC. Once you see the trailer you'll want to read it. So, even though I would never think of Regan as "sunny" (she'd hate that), I'm giving her an award anyways!!!

3. McIntyre's Move West - Jillian's HILARIOUS blog about her life. She tells the funniest stories about things that happen in her every day life. My favorites are about the elderly woman Audrey who lives in the apartments where Jillian works/lives. Go read this blog! You will LAUGH till you cry at some of the stories!

4. For the Love of Beads - I'm not sure I know anyone MORE Sunny than Mallory. Her sweet spirit is SO evident in her blog. She's so generous with praise for others and you can just tell how much she loves lampworking. That kind of enthusiasm is contagious. When I need a lift and a reminder of how fun it is to make beads... I visit this blog.

5. Studio Marcy - One of my very best bead buds. I might venture to say a BBFF (beady BFF). I love our visits together and her work always makes me smile. Her BLOG is great for inspiration though. She always finds something new and interesting to share with people!

Ok... for now, I'm just going to have to go with 5. I'll try to come up with some others as the week progresses. After all, the instructions didn't say I had to have all 15 at once!!!!


Other studio news will have to wait till tomorrow! I'm late!!!!!!
