This was a completely beautiful and unexpected surprise, Anne Huskey-Lockard at El Milagro Studios posted a link that I was to check out, and wow! She's given me an award, how about that?
"This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or 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 clever-written text into the body of their award."
So, wow, thanks Anne! Um, now to narrow it down to eight people to pass this on to, and she's already gotten a few that I would have chosen. Sooo here we go:
Jaye at Artquiltmaker
Laume at Beach Treasure
Lunaea at Lunaea Weatherstone's Blogue
Arlee at Albedo Design Journal
Karoda at Seamless Skin
Deb at Stitch In Time
These blogs are so much a part of my life now, I love reading them, and was missing them terribly for the week that I was offline. Thanks ladies for sharing of yourselves and writing so well and being so darned inspiring. I encourage those of you reading this to check them out (if you're not already reading them) and add them to your blog list.
I did some googling to find the origin of this award, because the name of it is so interesting. Couldn't find anything except that the award name, Proximidade is Portugese for Proximity. So mysterious, but it has been around the internet since last year, I love it!
