Liebster Blog Award - Say What?!

Can this be right? A blog award?

I am beyond excited to receive my very first ever blog award! Rachel at Thrifty Inspirations has given me the Liebster Blog award!


Admittedly, I had no idea what the name meant, but that didn't make me any less giddy. Yes, giddy. So I hopped right over to Rachel's blog to check it out! And first let me say, if you don't already follow Thrifty Inspirations, you need to start. It is my very favorite kind of blog full of DIY and home improvement projects! And I'm super excited about her new Thrifty Under $50 weekly link-up party. Seriously, go check it out.

But back to good old Lieb (is it okay to nickname my new friend, the blog award?). Here are the details of the award:

Liebster is a German word meaning Dearest or Beloved, it can also mean Favorite.  
The idea behind the Liebster Blog Award is that it is given to upcoming bloggers 
(with fewer than 200 followers) in order to create new connections and bring attention to wonderful growing blogs.

 When you win the award, there are a few rules to follow:
1.) Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog. (Thanks Rachel!)
2.) Link back to the blogger who presented the award to you. (Thrifty Inspirations = amazing)
3.) Copy and paste the blog award on your blog. (See it up there??)
4.) Present the Liebster Blog Award to 5 blogs of 200 followers or less who you feel deserves it.
5.) Let them know they have been chosen by leaving a comment on their blog.

It was SO hard for me to choose who to nominate for the award. There are so many blogs I love. But after much deliberation with Baby B, the five blogs I am presenting the Liebster Blog Award to are:

Amanda @ Impress Your Kids - I love how her blog focuses on raising God-fearing children. Especially her 31 day series found here!

 Anna @ Active Fingers - One of my best friends, she blogs about life as a music teacher and is usually whipping up something yummy!

Suzie @ The Accent Piece - More DIY goodies! She does wonderful projects for the home, and I'm working my way through her Photoshop for Blogging series!

Jen @ Insideways - Another home DIY blogger! I love her series on taking better home photos, and make sure you check out her Scrabble tile wall art. (I don't know how many followers you have, but I don't really care. You rock!)


Ritajoy @ Harbour Breeze Home - She writes a great blog about selling on etsy and at craft shows and such, and has some great DIY projects as well!

I hope they accept my award and pass it on! Thanks to Rachel for nominating me (I feel so awesome right now) and thanks to all my readers for the kind comments and bloggy love!

  4. Great blog. Lots of websites like yours cover subjects that just aren't covered by magazines. I don't know how we got on 10 years ago with just newspapers and magazines.
