Hmmmmmm What to Do

Not too long after I started blogging, you know way back ages ago 5ish months :) I noticed the Blog award phenomena. The first few I saw I thought, wow this is a way to meet fellow bloggers. Which is exactly why they were created in the first place. I think I even may have followed a few links to other blogs. But I don't know if you have noticed that the awards must be spending to much time in dark closets cuz they are breeding at an uncontrolled rate:( After about the 3rd one I got in a couple of days I decided that it was getting out of control. First it takes way to much time to follow through with the instructions and then to pick the required victo er... honorees, then go let them know. By the time I'm done I have lost interest in posting anything more that day. So I just got so I would thank the person who sent me the award without sending it on to anyone. OMG, Horrors, Holy Broken Mirrors Batman, that's just begging for a rash of bad luck! Maybe but then not being very go with following the rules I break chain letters also. I always seem to break out in a rash of hives when confronted with a bunch of have to do, or rules. :( I mean think about it what if I don't want to go to my pictures much less go to the 4th row, 6th file 22nd picture and then post it for everyone to see??

The only thing is that plan's not working all that well either. On the plan B... I think I'll try posting the award and putting it on my side bar. Then instead of picking any recipients I'll invite them to pass the award along if they would like to.

With that being said: Young Tristan Robin Blakeman. Don't you think either his parents or Christopher's parents had a typo ? I mean what are the chances of 2 blond haired cute as bugs and ever so well behaved boys having the same middle name Robin ?? Had to be a snafu at the hospital :) Any way TR gave me this lovely award. If you think the award fits your blog please post it and pass it along :)

This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this clever-written text into the body of their award."
This next one isn't an award at all it's an invitation to get to know 3 of your blog visitors and create for each of them a piece of art from your heart. There aren't but a couple of "rules" so that makes me happy and there is only one dead line. Here read them for your self, since you do have a chance to say if you don't want to play along. That way I don't have to deal with any of that "Mom loves me best" malarkey :)

For the first 3 (three, tres, 111) people that comment on this posting, I will make a one of a kind, original, made by me, can't buy in any stores, little creation just for you :) What I create will be just for you. You will receive my gift before the end of the year, or sooner. You will have no idea what the item is going to be or when you will receive it.

There is one request, to me this is a way to get to know three of the people that read my blog. That way I can make the perfect just because gift for them. I would like to ask that if you choose to play with me to pass this invitation along to at least 3 other people :) You know it has a bit of that "Play it Forward" thing going on:)

Got to get a little fru fru time in, tonight is Saturday Date Night, and LW came home with a huge bouquet of red roses and new tooth brushes......

Have a most audacious day or evening depending on where in Bloglandia you are ;)

Blog awards....and following rules....and having to do what others say....and picking people out of a line up.....I am not good with these things AT ALL. I've been very grateful in the past, even made a special page to house and thank...but truly I can't deal whens someone gives me something that has "now you must...." attached to it. I also break chain letters/emails. Chances are if it says "if you don't send this to 5 people x will happen to you"....I hit delete!
Oh I am a bad girl.. :)
