Just had to give a bloggy shout out to Nicole over at The Middlest Sister. She has just passed 5000 subscribers! Whoo hoo! The sky’s the limit as far as I’m concerned when you’ve got mad talent like hers.
She brings stories of her childhood to life with unbelievably intricate pictures cut from paper. You will not believe the emotions her magic scissors are able to generate.
I know I’ve none too subtly bragged (in an annoyingly gloating way) about occasionally cycling through WordPress’s recommended list of Humor bloggers, but that’s small potatoes. Nicole’s blog is listed among the Staff Picks, which is their short list of blogs recommended as the best of all categories. http://wordpress.com/#!/read/recommendations/
It’s like she’s in the permanent collection in the Louvre, with her own spot on the wall and postcards of her stuff on sale in the gift shop, while I’m hawking landscapes of the Seine to ugly Americans out front on the sidewalk.
In honor of her great accomplishment, Nicole crafted paper avatars of some of her commenters, and I’m beyond delighted to be included in the rogue’s gallery. I (and the fluffy lamb I rode in on) have never looked better.
If you don’t know Nicole, hop on over right now. Try to avoid being charmed out of your socks – just try. Can’t be done.
