An Award? I'm speechless!

An artist friend of mine has nominated "Everything's Relative" for an award... An award? My little brand new genealogy blog? But why???? She said that my blog shows my dedication to my family, my craft and my heritage. What lovely and very kind words!

Shelly, I am so appreciative of your acknowledgement of my blog! Congrats on your award as well. Shelly is a wonderful mixed media artist - you can see her creations here.

This is the Proximidade blog award. The details of the award are as follows:
"These blogs invest and believe in 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 cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

The blogs that I choose are listed below. One thing I have certainly found is that genealogy and art blogging are "communities" and being a newbie in these communities, I can honestly say that people are very accepting of me. Some of these bloggers will have never heard of me, but I visit their sites often and see their work - they're all very knowledgeable and friendly - some hold "community" activities to get us all together, others give free tips for artists and still others are just plain friendly folks - for these things I thank you and feel that you deserve this award.

Visit these sites, and "find and be friends!"

  1. Oh, my goodness, Cindy, I feel awful about this. No, I didn't see your email and your selecting me for the award. I do apologize. My husband may have accidentally deleted it ~ I know I wouldn't have! ;>0

    Thanks so much.
    Hope your day is great and your New Year as well.
