You say the nicest things!

Ruth, Amanda, Ellen, Lyn and Sue, shame on you, you've made me blush! Thank you for your kindness in awarding the 'Proximidade' blog award to me; it is lovely to be thought of by my fellow bear artists with such generous spirit.

The 'Proximidade' Award
The creators of this award say the following:

"The blogs who receive this award are exceedingly charming. This blog invests in proximity in space, time and relationships. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandisement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these awards are cut, even more friendships will be propagated. Please give your kind attention to these writers!"

High praise indeed! As I understand it, my duty as recipient of this award is to ensure it's safe delivery to eight further bloggers who should then choose eight recipients of their own. We must all include the text "I'm feeling very honoured to have been chosen," which of course, we are! So, without further ado, these are the eight blog writers I would like to pass on the award to, in the spirit in which it was intended. Please pay them all a friendly visit!

Firstly, right back at ya Amanda! I know you've already received this award, but I'd very much like to endorse it for the kindness you have shown me recently and also for the help you have offered to 100 Best Bear Blog Artists:

Oh dear, my next choice has already been honoured too! Ah well, I'll name her anyway ... Ellen, this is for the work you did for the bear artist community with your special 'Christmas Parade':

This lovely lady doesn't update her blog often, but behind the scenes, she works tirelessly to help bear artists both in the UK and overseas. Jane, we all thank you for your friendship and commitment:

Laura Lyn should also be presented with this award for the friendship, charm and assistance she so generously extends:

Am I allowed to share this with my sister too? Tina's blog gives a wealth of information helpful to anyone interested in photography and when combined with the endless help and advice she regularly sends my way, I think she should receive her first blog award:

And this one for an incredibly talented lady who offers wonderful advice for doll artists on her blog, with great foresight and generosity of spirit:

Ruth, this one's for you! I know you've already received it, but your consistent friendship, support and enthusiasm is always valued, your blog is always interesting and beautifully written and I can't possibly leave you off my list!

Last but by no means least, I would like to share this award with Sue, a lady who has been a staunch supporter of British Bears on the Net, working above and beyond the call of duty in offering her friendship and advice. Thanks Sue!
