A little while ago, two of my favourite blogger friends rewarded me and my blog with the Liebster Blog Award!
First was Katie whose blog is called Unconventional Katie. Katie and I could have been seperated at birth. We have so many things in common that it's almost scary ;-)
Second was my friend Tanya who blogs over at Craft Couture by T.C. She really became a very good friend over the last months. We share the ups and downs of a long distance relationship. It's always nice to have someone to talk to who totally understands. She just whipped up a cool tutorial for the cutest bag!
Thank you both so much!!!!
Some of you might not know that the award has a German name (hence the post title). "Liebster Blog" means "most favourite blog.
And of course there are some rules ;-)
1. Thank the person who gave you the award.
2. Link back to their blog.
3. Copy and paste the Liebster award to your profile.
4. Pick 5 blogs that you feel deserve to be in the spotlight (they must have under 200 followers).
5. Blog about it and leave a comment for your nominations to let them know that you have chosen their blog.
Well, I follow about 120+ blogs, but most of these don't even know I'm there. And then there are about 40 something blogs that I have found through the Small Blog Meet and I enjoy most of them the same cause it's a small little communtity that actually "talks" to each other by leaving comments and replying to comments.
It's a bit hard to pick, but I am gonna try!
Of course, I would have picked Tanya and Katie, but someone else was quicker ;-)
One of my favourite blogs is Kim's. I love her and her blog ever since she posted a rattle snake stew recipe right underneath one of my posts. Right know she is taking a blogging break, but I hope she will be back soon. I miss her sense of humor! She is soooooo generous, too. For christmas (while I was in the States) she sent my a WalMart gift card so I could finally buy myself a nice cutting mat. I've been excessivly using it and you could see it peeking through in a lot of my last posts. I LOVE it!!!!!
I want to give the award to Natalie from the Orange Kitty Workshop. She is a new mom to a very cute little baby and now that those first 3 months are over she finds more time to blog again. I love her humor - even if she vents about customer service at Joann's ;-)
Betty from Anything goes ... - cause she makes beautiful quilts, leaves comments and she is Dutch (Germans love the Dutch ;-)
Erin from Billy Button Design. She makes beautiful quilts, cute little pouches and other pretty things and she is a very generous person! She just sent me a beautiful charm pack and a cute Russian doll pincushion!
My dear friend and cousin-in-law Cat who is The Whimsical Gardener and who takes the most beautiful photos in the world and loves to use photoshop and textures to make them even prettier. She can probably name and tell you all about every native (and not so native) plant in Texas (probably even more), which I totally admire!
I knew I couldn't just stop here ;-)
