Here's the explanation and the silly rules that go with it:
"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in 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 cleverly-written text into the body of their award."
And here are my choices (I can't get the italics to turn off, so I guess we'll just have to deal with that!)
My Mom - who should blog more!
Songbird - a friend before I knew her and especially now. Amazing writer.
RevDrKate - deep thinker and fellow pilgrim
Mindy - A friend for life! Amazing crafter and dear person
SpookyRach - A longtime blogfriend, a great artist, funny as you know what
LauraLew - a kindred spirit
Ruth - Ditto that!
St. Casserole - she's cold today and needs some warmin' up.
