Before the holidays I was checking my Facebook page, I was shocked at what I was reading. My dear blogger friend, Lindsay, of Easy Made Invitations had sent me a notice that she had won the Liebster Blog Award and that she was to now choose 5 of her favorite blogs. She continued by telling me that I had been chosen for this award.
After learning what this award was all about (more about that in a minute), I went from surprised to thrilled, to honored.
For those of you who don’t know me, I’m just beginning my blogging journey. I’m a wife, mother of 3 beautiful kids who are growing up to fast, and running a party planning business. I was a special education teacher to my beloved visually and hearing impaired students then after ending that chapter in my life I was blessed with 3 beautiful children. Raising them with my hubby has been the greatest joy of my life. My love for design, creating, sewing and entertaining started when I was very young and the love continues. I have been entertaining and having parties for years as well as decorating and designing.
I love to create, teach, and learn. On this blog you will find DIY’s, Party ideas, Sweets, Sewing, and Sweet Inspirations. So visit often, I love company.
Lindsay, my dear blogger friend, you have made my day! My sincere” thank-you” for choosing me!
Now about the Award. It is to be given to up and coming bloggers who usually have 200 or less likes.
Liebster is a German word meaning ‘dear, sweet, kind, nice, good, beloved, lovely, kindly, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome’.
To keep this award going, it must be passed along to other new deserving blogs. I must now recognize five other bloggers with less than 200 followers that have really stood out in the crowd.
The rules for the Liebster Award are:
1. Thank the person who gave the award and link back to their blog.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know!
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog post.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love too!
So now, for my 5 top pics to receive the Liebster Blog Award, are as follows:
1. Ashlee Rae
2. Inspiring Giggles
3. Palm Beach Parties
4. Crafty Tracey
5. Wants and Wishes
Ladies, I love your blogs and your wonderful creativity! Keep it coming in 2012! I’ll be visiting!!!
