Blogger awards

Good Morning Everybody

What a way to start a day! A lot of us love crafting and do a lot of effort, but does not always win something big or do not even have a lot of followers. So, when you suddenly open your mail and comments and you are nominated and awarded by your fellow bloggers it makes you feel loved and it makes all efforts worth while.

This morning I received 2 awards, though I am going to handle them seperately in one post.

The first one is from Hannelie. She is my sister-in-law, whom started much earlier than me with cardmaking and probable kickstarted my cardmaking craft.

Liebster is German for Dearest, but can also mean Beloved or Favourite.

Apparently to receive this award there are a few 'rules'... so here goes!

1. Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog ... check!

2. Link back to the blogger who presented the award to you ... check!

3. Copy and paste the blog award on your blog ... check!

4. Present the Liebster Blog Award to 5 blogs of 200 followers or less who you feel deserve to be noticed.

5. Let them know they have been chosen by leaving a comment at their blog.

My 5 blogs I want to award this to, is:

Borqna - Borqna

Catherine - Cat's scrap

They are from all over the world and each brings a new technique to the table to inspire me!

Thank you.

Now for the second nominatiion award:

This one I received from Laurie. Thank you for making my day!

Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself

I have been a stay at home mom for 11 years now, with two boys, aged 9 & 10. I love cooking and entertaining, though I love to escape into nature from time to time, away from everything.

We've stayed in France for almost 7 years and travelled through the whole of Europe. The Italians will always have a special place in my heart, because of their passion for life, but once an African, always an African. There is nothing that beats the smell of dust with the first drops of an African rain and an African sunset.

Have a wonderful day and continue to spread the good news to your fellow blogger inspirations.
