1. Cheryl Sleboda at http://blog.muppin.com for all her creative endeavors. She is always busy doing something creative. She has great tutorials, ideas and cheerful thoughts. She sent me the award, but I would have her on my list.
2. Chris from http://chris-alt-del.blogspot.com writes about his Hodgkin's Lymphoma. I have never met him, he is a guy from Detroit. He doesn't just write about his cancer, but how he lives his life around it. It is interesting for me to see other cancer survivors just getting on with things; not glossing over pain; being who they are with a diabolic illness. He always has a great playlist as well.
3. Allie from http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com is awesome to read, her dialogue and drawings are hysterical!! I laugh out loud over the drawings and situations. Ian was hysterical over the cartoon about bike riding.
4. Teri from http://yetiak.blogspot.com when she posts has insightful tidbits. She is my sister, lives in Alaska and just has a different way of thinking. It is hard to predict what she is thinking. Teri is a much nicer person than I am, she isn't always having evil thoughts.
5. Heather and Megan from http://quiltstory.blogspot.com are two sisters that post quilts and the corresponding stories. It is a fun, interesting and great way to see a variety of quilts from all over. When I get brave enough and can figure out all the technical instructions, I want to post my breast cancer quilt.
6. Nannette from http://nanettesthoughtfulspot.blogspot.com writes about her life in Montana. She is my cousin and lives a life so different from my own. She home schools, gardens, hikes and lives an extreme un-urban life. Us city-dwellers think of the "country life" as idyllic, but is she honest about her triumphs and struggles. Life has ups and downs no matter where you live.
