Blog awards and blog giveaway winner

by - Monday, January 05, 2009

The lovely Jojoebi of A Bit of This and a Bit of That and Jojoebi Designs was so kind to give me this award during the new year. What a wonderful way to start the new year! Thank you Jojoebi!

Now, about this award:

This award is given to a blog that invests and believes in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of 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!

I'm blessed to know many wonderful people through this blog and best of all to cultivate lovely friendships with all of them. They come from near and far. But space doesn't matter. The world smaller and lovelier because of the bonds of creativity and friendship shared. It's hard to pick just 8 people to pass this award to since I adore each and every blog on my sidebar.

Anyway, I am honored to pass this award to the following blogs:

Karin of Ute och Inne (Sweden)
Thalita Dol (Brazil)
Cindy of Lucy's Tales from Home (USA)
Suzanne of Create Fun and Mess (Australia)
Gina of Gingerbread (Australia)
Sonia of Cozy Homemaking (France)
Kristy of Paisley Jade (New Zealand)
Valerie of Acornmoon (UK)

Please drop by these blogs and say hello!

And now, for the most important order of the day. It's the day I announce the winner of the new year's blog giveaway. The winner is.......

A Spoonful of Sugar
