My First Blog Award!

Sharon from an awesome blog I follow, From Rags to Rainbows, awarded ME the Leibster Award !

The Liebster Blog Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.  Liebster is a German word meaning clean, sweet, kind, nice, good, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome.

Thank you so much Sharon! I am so honored and excited that you included me in your choices! Now, if you haven't visited Sharon's  blog, you are missing out!! She makes jewelry, sews and repurposes funrniture. She is a thrifty shopper and has started painting everything she can get her hands on. Please check out her blog.

To keep this award going and pass it along to other new deserving blogs, the recipient must now recognize five other bloggers with less than 200 followers that have stood out in the crowd.

The rules for the Liebster Award are:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.

2.  Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.

3.  Copy and paste the award on your blog.

4.  Have faith that your followers will spread the love too!

Now this was a little harder for me and took some time. You know I haven't been at this blogging thing very long. And most of the blogs I follow are from established blogger with thousands of followers. Plus I don't like to "follow" a blog unless I really enjoy it. I have to really be interested in their projects and like their style of writing. Soooo, I had to do a little research. If Sharon hadn't given ME the award, I certainly would've given it to her . I enjoy everything about her blog, PLEASE check it out.

OK, all that being said ,here are my 5  blogs, in no particular order:

Rebecca @ You're Talking too Much ( she had me at the name ! )
Now I'm not sure if it's "legal" for me to give her this award , it is supposed to be for blogs under 200 followers , but as I was her #201 , I'm doing it anyway. Just call me a rebel ! Her blog makes me laugh and she has great tips AND I participate in her "linky " party on Mondays. Please check her out !

Lesley @ Freakin Craft
I started following Lesley when we both participated in the same " linky" party ( couldn't tell you which one right now , wish I could remember , geez...) She does a lot of printable and is generous enough to share them with those of us not capable of creating our own . PLUS , she is FREAKIN hilarious !Please check her out !

Tracy @ Crow's Feet Chic
I really like her style. She got me with all of her awesome Halloween posts. And I look forward  to seeing what she does for the coming holidays.

Alyssa @ Everything has a Place
Alyssa linked to one of the same parties I did ( again , can't remember which one ) and made some awesome pillows. I am not a sewer but with her step by step instructions , I think I might give it a try. That is if I can find a good second hand machine somewhere.

Deborah @ Confessions of a Craigslist Junkie
Again, I like her style. We has a lot of the same interests and I love to see how she repurposes furniture.

Thanks again Sharon !
