Sunshine On My Shoulders!

What? An award? I haven't received an award, or passed one on along for long long time it seems. So I decided... oh, heck, why not?

First, the interesting thing about this award is that it was given to me by Yvonne from Ink Spillers Attic... which is NOT a book blog! I find this interesting because I thought only book bloggers read my blog. Are you telling me that OTHER type of bloggers read this thing? (Besides the couple of so called "mommy" bloggers that show up now and then.) Anyway, nice to meet you Yvonne and thanks for reading! (She appears to be in the crafter type blogger circle...which I should get to know more of because lately my 11 year old daughter has been begging me to set up an Etsy shop, once and for all. But the crafts we make are CRAPPY. How could I ever sell them? But stop! Subject for another post I'm thinking.....)

Second, I will play and pass it along. It's been awhile, so I can handle it, I can!

Twelve blogs that make me feel all sunshiny:

Brodi Ashton's Blog: because she never fails to make me laugh
Michelle's Masterful Musings: because we both "get" the Muse thing
Books and Chocolate: because she is a sweet sweet commenter
Po(sey) Sessions: because she is crazy silly
A Small Accomplishment: because she has recently decided to share her bookish opinions more often
Page After Page: because she shares the cutest granddaughter pictures ever
Angieville: because she makes me want to read every book she ever talks about
Age 30+... A Lifetime of Books: because we like lots and lots of the same things
The Zen Leaf: because we don't like lots of the same things and that's fun and interesting too
An Adventure in Reading: because she is such a fun Bookword Game partner
Michelle Teacress: because she's the only one who's commented on my daughter's guest post! (so far)
Good Clean Reads: because she made my day at our Utah blogger party

Thanks to you all for the sunshine. Now, go forth and shine some sun on other blogs, if you feel so inclined. If you don't, that's okay too because to me, there's no such thing as rules where awards are concerned! 


  1. OH I needed a sunshine award. I had a tough week! Thank you. :)

  2. You're so sweet! Thank you so much, I'll post about it tomorrow!

  3. You are very welcome. I DO have a blog that is not a book blog, but I am a big reader and love books of all kinds. I find that a big percentage of people who love the arts, like me, ARE big readers. My whole life I have had a wide variety of interests that have come and gone, but books have always been there as a constant. I never thought of blogland having "circles" of blogs, but I guess it does. I like to visit many different kinds, so awards sort of give me the chance to surf into blogs that I wouldn't find otherwise. So I am glad to see you are passing it along. I a enjoying your blog and others in different circles too. :)

  4. Thank you! You are so kind and supportive! Do I know enough bloggers yet to pass this on?? (Minus the ones you listed cuz I know a handful of those now...)

  5. Thank you so much! It is a beautiful award, and yes, we both get the "Muse" thing. We need to spread the word!

  6. Thanks Suey! You are too sweet. :) I'll get a post up about this, but it may be a while ...

  7. Wow! I just noticed this. Thanks so much. I love getting awards even though I hardly ever post about them. I might have to post and pass along this time because it made me feel so good. Thanks.
