Some blog award love!


I am extremely flattered that Louise from Buttons by Lou Lou has chosen Handmade Kids for her blog award -aaaaawhhh!  If you look off to the side, you will see Louise’s store as our Store of the Momment.

Proximidade is described as follows:’This blog invests and believes 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 for 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!’This blog award should be sent to your favorite eight bloggers and they, in turn should forward to eight of their favorites. You should include the text for Proximidade (above) in your announcement blog. And so I award the following eight blog pages for their Proximidade attributes:
