Liebster Blog Award

The wonderful Sarah over at Dwell On Joy has awarded me my first blog award!

The Liebster award is granted to new bloggers with less than 200 followers, by a blogger who is a fan of your work. Thanks so much Sarah! 

I tried to find the origin of this Liebster award but it remains a mystery- which kind of adds to it's appeal! I did however find out that "liebster" is German for "beloved". Aw... how lovely!

A large part of receiving such an honour is to pay it forward and bestow the Liebster to 5 other new bloggers!

It's hard to pick just five, but here we go!

Craft Crazy Mom
Maria at Craft Crazy Mom is simply AMAZING! I love all her projects and her daughter is SO cute!

Charmed by Sweets
May at Charmed by Sweets is a dear friend and an uber creative gal who's especially gifted with baking. Yum!!

Handmade by Is
Is at Handmade by Is has the added challenge of writing her posts in both English and Spanish but she does a great job at it and has really great crafts to share with us!

Urbane Jane
Jane at Urbane Jane is a teacher by day, DIYer extraodinaire by night!

Teresa Boyd

Teresa's blog chronicles DIY projects from her 1950's rancher plus other little gems!

Now here is your mission (as per Liebster award rules):

1) Thank the blogger who awarded it to you.
2) Link back to the said blogger who shared the award.
3) Post the award on your blog.
4) Pick 5 other blogs you want to recognize.
5) Visit the 5 bloggers and let them know that they receive the award.

Congrats ladies! Keep up the great work and know that you are loved!! =)
