I've been fortunate enough in the last couple of weeks, to have been given not one but three Leibster Blog awards. Because things have been a little, ahem, difficult around these parts, I just haven't had time to think about it and so wasn't able to post up my badge, hence being given more than one. One of the things I was busy with was Valentine's Day. Management is a plain and simple kinda guy so this was right up his street.
Today though my craft room is out of action (more on that soon) but this means I am finally getting around to thanking the people who passed it onto me and in turn I will be passing on too.
The Liebster award is given to blogs that you love with less than 200 followers. It's a German word meaning favourite or dearest and its a way of sharing newer blogs and encouraging readers to visit the places where you've found inspiration, encouragement and motivation. I'm really grateful to Lisa, Jan and E for nominating me, you guys made me feel all warm inside!
And now, for my part of the bargain, I have to nominate 5 further blogs which is pretty tricky really!
Alison - encourages my weight loss journey as well as my crafting journey. We've become regulars on each others blogs and this is one of the reasons that I do it - I'm happy that crafting can be so sociable!
Louise - one of the first blogs I ever followed because I loved her designs and now I'm on a design team with her! Her layouts are fabulous and each one so different from the next.
Fiona - I love her 5 Things I Love series and she has led me to other great blogs. I like the fact that she dips her toe into different crafts. She also showed me how to see if I had been Pinned which gave me a vital pick me up last week.
Jaki - now a friend in real life and someone who, like Fiona, has inspired me to get my fabrics out again. She has been SO supportive of my crafty endeavours and has really encouraged me to keep at it.
Sarah - a chance comment on my blog at just the right time that I was starting to wonder what it would be like to be on a design team. Since I joined her, she has been incredibly supportive and encouraging and given me real self-belief.
So this is for you guys!
Bye for now
