My first (7) blogger award nominations

*Wisher* from Pretty Little Things in a Box just nominated me for, not one, but 7 awards.  Thanks *Wisher*!  That’s a lot of love!!

I’ve seen nominations like these before and always coveted them.  They seem to be kind of like a chain letter, in that you get one and then have to pass it around to a certain number of other people.  But it’s a cool kind of chain letter, because it connects bloggers who might not otherwise find each other in this huge blog world.

Rather than just send out all 7 awards to the same people, I’m going to break them up again and try to send them out one at a time to get the most “bang for my buck”.  You know, to spread the love around.

So, here’s the first one: The Liebster Award.

LiebsterAward

This awesome blogger did all the work for me on investigating the origins of the blog (and she has a fun blog that I might never have found if I hadn’t been doing this search):

Here’s what she said about it:

“Liebster rules:

1. Thank the one who nominated you by linking back.
2. Nominate five blogs with less than 200 followers.
3.  Let the nominees know by leaving a comment at their sites.
4.  Add the award image to your site.

*Note: There is no general committee that awards this award. It’s just a recognition from one blogger to another for how awesome they are. Kind of like a really big Internet hug!”

So… here goes:

Thanks, *Wisher*!!  Here’s her post with my nomination.  Be sure to check out her blog.   http://prettylittlethingsinabox.wordpress.com/2013/08/09/award-time-part-3/

My nominations (This is the hard part- choosing among the hundreds of blogs that I’ve come to know and love.  The “less than 200 followers” rule narrows it down, so here are they are- in no particular order):

http://ontheupcycle.wordpress.com/ – I love this blog.  She upcycles all kinds of random things and makes them pretty.

http://manychacha.wordpress.com/ – Michelle writes about her adventures, crafting, cooking, and her kiddos.  What could be better?

http://defineyourjoy.com/ – I’ve loved seeing Natasha’s participation in Daisy Yellow’s ICAD Challenge for the past couple months.  And her daughter played along too.

http://lovelinest.org/ – She’s a homeschooling mom that has a craft space that’s to die for.  I love her art journal pages.

http://apartment-wife.com/ – Jennifer blogs about spreading love around one of my favorite cities: Minneapolis.  She sounds like, quite possibly, the nicest women in the city.

So, there you have it!  I hope all these lovely ladies choose to spread the love.

  1. Thank you so much for my nomination. It made my day when I saw your comment, especially because I was not feeling it at the time. I really appreciate it.

  2. Great work breaking up the blog awards! I was tempted to do that myself, but it seemed like too much hard work. I’m glad to see them getting their own spotlights once more! And while the awards might seem a little like chain letters, that doesn’t mean they’re not deserved!
