  1. Cripes, that is fantastic – well done. Your blog is original and very well done so I am not surprised that it is popular.

    Also, I notice that I am on that mosaic! Thank you.

    I actually recognised some of the other avatars as well…

  2. Wow, 5000, that is amazing! And incredibly well deserved, you have a wonderful gift. I am honoured to be included in your fantastic avatars. Thank you!

  3. Congratulations! 5,000 , that’s incredible, and what a wonderful and warm way to celebrate. I can’t tell you how surprised I was to see me and Avery there! We are both so honored.And to think, less than a year ago our Avery had never even been outside, then alone in cyberspace, and now look at her nearly famous thanks to you.

  4. Congratulations on 5000! As the oldest of 5 girls myself I find your blog to be delightful. I think my favorite is the rule that allows the oldest to ride in the front seat!!

  5. What a delightful and awesome surprise! I’m glad you were able to keep it (I’m the worst at that, too. I used to buy gifts early, and couldn’t not give them, so I ended up buying two gifts many a birthday.)

    And I was even more surprised to find my avatar among them! Thank you so much for doing that for us, I it’s very nice to be appreciated, and amazing to be turned into works of art.

  6. Wow! I am so impressed that a) you have 5,000 followers, b) that you took the time to re-create 50 gravatars and c) that you included mine (thanks!). You deserve the success!

  7. Oh isn’t this the most divinely awesome thing that you are doing for your readers! What effort! I was so absolutely, insanely and fantabulously oversjoyed to see my gravatar! I could recognise it instantly! Thank you so much! You art, humour and wonderfully (sometimes wickedly wonderful…actually oftentimes wickedly wonderful) story tell gift makes my day!

    I love reading the blogs of other creative artists, whether they are story-tellers, photographers or painters. They inspire me in my own creative process.

    The Middlest Sister is one of the most insanely cool, and wickedly funny blogs I know. I look forward to reading every post. It is a marvelously creative blog that tells the growing up stories of 5 sisters through craft paper cut-outs. The blogger is the “middlest” of the 5. It often amazes the me how she is able to mimic expressions and activities in life.

    I always feel happy when I read the antics of the 5 sisters.

    Today, The Middlest Sister celebrates its 5000 subscriber mark and rewarded its 50 most active readers with a special paper cut-out of our gravatar. I was tickled pink to see my gravatar in paper (a few pink and purple cosmos flowers).

    Thank you, The Middlest Sister!

  9. Wohoooooooooot! Big congratulations for reaching the 5.000 miles stone! You really deserve it!

  16. This has got to be one of the absolute best posts EVER. Of the blogs I read I easily picked out their cutouts here. Great job!

  17. I’m so impressed! But you deserve having 5,000 brilliant followers who recognize amazing work when they see it. Kudos to you, and how nice of you to make these avatars for 50 followers. Now, about the other 4,500… ;)

  20. This is the coolest thing ever! I can’t believe you spent 25 hours making this. Thank you. It was so neat to scroll through and see all the bloggers I know.

Congrats on 5,000!

  21. Congratulations! You deserve the 5,000, and lots more! This has been a consistently hilarious and creative site, and I’m extremely proud to be one of the top 50! I totally didn’t expect to be in there, and that is such an awesome cut-out of my avatar!
