In the Pink!

For Lori Anderson – the bestest, boldest, brightest, pinkest blog hop organizer ever:
Lori –I’ve gone pink in honor of YOU - your courage, your strength, your devotion to your family, and your love of all things sparklie.   Despite dealing with, what to many of us may seem like insurmountable odds at times (down for the count with a migraine or chronic back pain and yet you blog on), you still manage to neatly organize these hops and keep us all excited about the challenge. You rock right through, and come out even stronger, with your eye on the prize – whether it simply be the thanks, more beads, or the ultimate reward - PIE.  Because of you, the blog challenge is MORE than just a fun bead adventure,  it’s  become a tribute to you and your many strengths.   Going pink – even for just a day seemed like a simple way to say thanks!
I'm Proud to be ‘in the pink’
 Now -  a little background about the pink thing just in case you aren't in on the fun:
Lori loves pink.  Pink everything.  And most importantly - her HAIR is pink.  Bright, bold, in your face pink.  And it becomes her.  It looks good on her.  She ROCKS the pink hair.  And since she puts up with a LOT of, well, I'll use the word CRAP- from wannabe and soon to be hop challenge beaders, several of us (thanks to Sandy and Shelley) got together in secret to plan and create a special thank you day for Lori.   And today's the day.  There is MORE to the secret that I will not divulge here - I'll leave that to Sandy and Shelley, who also deserve a big thanks and a pink hair salute as well.  I've still got about 1/2 can of pink hairspray

Below is a partial list of the participants if you'd like to hop just like we do for the bead hop challenges - and see what everyone else looks like with pink hair too!  I know there are other bloggers - Shelley Graham Turner (the last name on the list) has more participants listed in the comments section of her Facebook post if you want to check her out!

Peaceful PINK beading!

The hair is actually not pink today - it was done about a month ago - before I decided to go goth black and have it cut short! I've still got about 1/2 can hairspray left, though - and that pink is gonna POP on the darker hair color when I decide to do it again!
I think I went to both your blogs already this morning - sorry if I didn't comment - I, like Lori have an appointment to get off to. But I plan to hit them all, and comment on as many as I can-later today when the hubby's gone and dogs are out back doing what dogs do....
