Liebster Blog Award

I received a blog award thanks to Joyce at Thank you Joyce! Joyce as been my one and only follower for the past few months, supporting me and encouraging me to work on my blog. I finally decided to take the plunge, and now I think I am on a roll!

About Joyce:    
For those of you that don’t know Joyce, I’ll tell you a little of what I know. First and foremost, she is the most kind hearted and sweet person I have ever known. I never hear her say anything negative about anyone in the many years I have known her. She is just the sort of person everyone wants to be friends with: creative, smart, beautiful, interesting, and she has an amazing sense of humor. You know, the kind of dry, sarcastic sort that makes you laugh and you can’t stop to breathe. Her paper crafting skills are amazing. She is a true fine artist and all-around top-notch crafter. She puts so much thought and detail into every aspect of her work. She just might be that next great designer, so keep an eye on her!

About the award:

“Liebster” is a German word meaning dearest, beloved or favorite, and the Liebster Award is sort of a chain letter among bloggers that’s intended to showcase exceptional up-and-coming blogs (typically, those with 200 or fewer followers). There’s no evaluation committee or formal award process for the Liebster, but in a way it’s even nicer – it’s recognition that a peer has noticed and appreciated your hard work.

And, now I am sharing and passing on the award to five up and coming blogs that I’m sure you will want to stop by for a visit and say hi.

Here are the rules:
• Choose 5 up and coming blogs of fewer than 200 followers to award the Liebster to.
• Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
• Post the award on your blog. Link back to the blogs you have given the Liebster to so everyone else can pay them a visit.

I haven’t been very good at being in-touch with the online scrapping community, so many of these blogs are also new to me. All of these ladies are super talented and inspirational.

So in no particular order here are my 5:






And as a special thank you to Joyce, I have created a card for her. You can see it by clicking here.
