Liebster Award

Over the last couple of weeks, not one but three lovely bloggers have honored me with the Liebster award.  All three of these ladies have blogs that continually inspire me, and it makes me very happy that they in turn like to visit me here. :)  

Check out their beautiful blogs:

Michelle at Amusing Michelle
Jess at Playing with Paper


What is the Liebster Blog award?  Here is a quick explanation.  "Liebster" is German for 'dearest.'  The award is a 'share-the-love' arrangement, given to inspirational bloggers with fewer than 200 followers (based on Google followers).

Here's the to-do list of any Liebster award recipient:
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you
2. Reveal your five blogger picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog (see above)
4. Hope that those you award forward it to their favorite bloggers

I always feel a little bit funny about blog awards and I find it so difficult to pick just five great blogs.  In fact, I have been remiss about acting upon a blog award left for me by the amazing Kim of Joyful Creations with Kim from last spring. 

I do feel blessed to have "met" so many people around the world who share a love of this craft. It's a wonderful community we are a part of. Here are five blogs, in no particular order, that I highly recommend you visit, if you haven't already:

Congrats, Ann! It's so hard to only pick 5 when there are so many great talented folks out there :)
I'm excited to go take a peek at your choices because they're all new to me!
