Recently, I had the honor of receiving the following award for my blog two times--thank you so much Barbara, of Southern Lady's Vintage, and Merle of RowanDevoe!
According to the accompanying message, the spirit of the award is this:
"This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY--nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. The 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 written text into the body of their award."
Since starting my blogging adventure back in April of last year, I have met so many kind, talented and supportive bloggers. From those who pop by from time to time and leave encouraging comments, to those who choose to "Follow" my blog on their Reading List, it is very hard to single out just eight, but I will try!
Here is a group of ladies who I believe epitomize the ideal of the award: charming, generous, friendly, encouraging--and not to mention talented!
♥ Michaela of See You in the Wind
♥ Emma of Emma Lamb
♥ Kerin of Kerin Rose
♥Susanna of Suzy Q Jewelry
♥Sheela of Ecclectica
♥Ren of Fairysteps
♥Michelle of Michelle-Renee
♥Kirsty of Kootoyoo
(I would also add Barbara and Merle to the list too!)
While I'm at it, I'd like to take the moment now to say Thank You! to Julia of The Spotted Sparrow, who was kind enough to feature my jewelry recently in her DaWanda Spotlight. The article can be viewed here. And while you're visiting her blog, check out her wonderful paper creations and DIY posts...
And Thank You! to Susanna of Suzy Q Jewelry, who included my Paisley Earrings in a recent post about textile jewelry on her blog. Susanna makes gorgeous and intricate wire-wrapped jewelry. Check out her work, and the blog post here.
I am getting back into a jewelry making routine now, after taking a nearly 2 and a half month hiatus--I should have some new designs to post in the next few days!
