Liebster Blog Award and Sharing the Blog Love...

Hello Everyone,
Happy Saturday to you...wanting to take this particular time to gratefully thank Barbara Rankin and her Blog 'Black Hole Art Studio' for honoring me with  the' Liebster Blog' award. I love to visit her Blog regularly for tips, tricks and inspiration and of course her beautiful projects.  And I love that Barbara loves to share and inspire her love for arts.
I have seen Blog awards on several Blogs while Blog Hopping and it makes the heart happy to know there are growing Artisan Bloggers who care and want to encourage new Bloggers on the journey to their love for the arts. So I would love to do the same and share this 'Liebster Blog' award with a couple of other Bloggers that have inspired me to grow and keep on keeping on through their blogs and inspiration. But before I do here is what I found the 'Liebster Blog' award entails.

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  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:
                       Sylvia Anderson        Blog------  Kard Krazy
                       Roxy Miravalle         Blog------  Roxy's Craft Blog
                       Joy Lynn                    Blog------ Joyful Imperfections Handmade Cards

Thank you all for supporting, inspiring and encouraging me to take my creativity to another level.

Until next time.
