Somedays I blog and think,
"Man, I love blogging I am going to blog FOREVER."
and then some days, I think.
"Holy Hannah Montana, blogging sucks the life outta me,
its so time consuming, and does anyone ever read this thing?
I get like no comments, ever..."
Obviously, my blog is just as bi-polar
as I am. Im not really bi-polar, but my husband
swears my mood changes as much and as fast
as a 6 year old girl changes outfits.
Luckily today is one of those days I feel
justified in my blogging efforts and content
with my decision to keep blogging.
I mean, really, the world needs me...
I feel that way today because the gracious Lisa
over at Creative Raisins
Has awarded me, the Liebster Award.
What is that you asked??
Well, I asked the same thing. Here's what I found.
The Liebster award is a rather ‘cute’ award as it has no form of patronage and seems to me as a positive example of word of mouth. The award is passed from one blogger to another as a really great example of recognition. From German origin, the word Liebster translates (via google translate) as ‘favourite’ or ‘beloved’. It is given to a blog which has under 200 followers and is traditionally accepted and passed on as follows:
- Show thanks to the blogger who awarded you by linking back to their blog.
- Pick 5 blogs with less than 200 followers and let them know about your nomination by leaving a comment on their blog
- Post the award on your blog.
Kinda cool right?
So, here are my 5 favs. I am awarding the Liebster to!
This blog is written by Tess,
and I am lucky enough to know her in person.
Her blog is hilarious and she writes about all kinds of things.
From fashion to food and everything in between.
She is one talented (framed) lady.
Melissa is a mom of 3 kids
and says that even though her husband
was recently poisoned by carbon monoxide, that they're
favorite saying is:
"When God changes the winds, adjust your sails".
Talk about inspiring.
She is super creative, very organized and talented.
Jennifer is so extremely talented.
Her blog is filled with sewing tips, tricks and great tutorials.
She loves recipes, refashioning and DIY.
I think this quote from her blog, really sums her up!
I believe that homemade is the new chic. I love the feeling of a finished project, something you can be proud of.I still believe in the good in the world and try to find the beautiful in every situation and every person.
I know Miranda from when we both
lived in Ventura, Ca.
She has got to be one of the most talented people I know.
Recently she had twins, is a great seamstress
and excellent artist.
She has a fantastic aesthetic and is definitely someone to watch.
Barb is a funny and creative woman.
(just like moi.. ha)
She has great style and does crafts and DIY stuff,
that makes me think,
"WOW, now, THAT is a great idea."
All of these blogs are so deserving of this
award and inspire me to be a better blogger
and more creative person!
