An award?! For me?

28 Feb

The divine Seamstress: Poppykettle nominated me for a Liebster Blog Award! Awww shucks, thank you so much Ms. Poppykettle!

“What is a Liebster Blog Award?” you may ask. I’ll let you in on a secret – I asked the same question. (Hey, I’m new on the blogging block!)

Liebster Blog Award

And here’s the answer:

“The origins of the Liebster Blog Award are somewhat unclear but the general consensus is that it means favourite or dearest to showcase bloggers with fewer than 200 followers.”

And it comes with the following β€˜rules’:

1 – Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog. Check! Poppykettle thanked.
2 – Link back to the blogger who presented the award to you. Check! Poppykettle linked.
3 – Copy/paste the blog award on your blog. Check! Award above.
4 – Present the Liebster Blog Award to 5 blogs (with 200 followers or less). Check! List below.
5 – Let them know they have been chosen by leaving a comment. I’ll do this very soon (promise!).

Now to get to my Liebster Blog Award nominees.

And the nominees are:

  • Leith of SewBrunswick. We both live in Melbourne, we both started blogging in the same week – how could I not?!
  • Next is The Curious Kiwi. We both like maps, what more can I say. Of course, by ‘maps’, I mean ‘sewing maps’.
  • And the third nominee is, Cirque du bebe. She had me at “Tigerlily Maxi” and followed up with ‘Violet’s market debut‘. As discovered on Burdastyle.
  • Then there’s Kristiann over at the Victory Patterns blog. I was delighted to find another supplier of patterns – and very fabulous patterns (with a nice ethical tilt) at that!
  • And last but by no means least is The Nail Trail for more nail art than one could ever imagine!

Now, for a couple of these brilliant, blogging, well, bloggers – I couldn’t see how many followers you had, so my apologies if you have over 200 – no disrespect intended, just compliments πŸ™‚ I ran a search on everyone’s blog and I didn’t get any results for Liebster, so my fingers are crossed. (And you have to forgive me cos I’m new anyway – it’s nearly my one month blogging anniversary!)

So there we have have it. Liebster Blog Award – done!

Now, on another note, look what turned up today – I could barely contain my excitement!


Today's postal surprise!

Now my post is done, I can get cracking on the new books!
