A huge and heartfelt thank you to Cheryl Ann Robinson at Cheryl Ann's Stamping Spot for giving me the Liebster Blog Award. It's so awesome to be bestowed with an award from another artist and I am happy to continue this tradition.
What is the Liebster Award?
Well. . .the origins of the Liebster Blog award are somewhat unclear and this seems to be blog folklore but it goes like this:
"Some time (in the recent past), somewhere (rumor has it that it might be Germany), someone (I guessing he/she was named Liebster) decided to do something nice for a whole lot of bloggers and started the Liebster Blog Award. It’s an award you receive, but it is also an award that you give."
Liebster is a German word so I translated it from a few sources - it means favorite, sweetheart, beloved, darling.
If you receive a Liebster Blog Award you are asked to choose 3-5 other bloggers and send them one as well. It is an award meant to highlight smaller blogs - less than 200 followers. Let them know that we care and are reading. The idea is that the blogger receiving the award links back to the blogger who awarded him/her, and then chooses 3-5 people to send the award to. There is no obligation to continue this award. It is a lovely way to share the love and also a way of introducing other bloggers to the blogs you enjoy.
Here are the blogs I would like
to pass the love on to:
Aimee Fleck - Aimee's Art and Scraps
Barbara Rankin - Black Hole Art Studio
Becky Garrison - Camellia Cottage Designs
Fabrizio Martellucci - Steampunk Cardmaking
Lea Cioci - CreativeLea's Infinite Journey
These are just a few of my creative friends that I have met along my blogging travels! I encourage everyone to visit these blogs and let these talented artists know how very special they are!
Happy Tuesday : ) Sb
