i’ve been given the liebster blog award

It turns out that ‘it all started with paint’ has won it’s first award.

The famed – and, they say, mysterious — Liebster Award.

Susan at Compulsive in Texas


… awarded me with the … well, award.  Thanks Susan!

I first found Susan when I spotted this at a link party …

Crazy creative, right? You can find out how Susan hand crafted each and every step by clicking here.

Susan received the award from Liza at Happy Lizard Hill.  Turns out Liza did some research on the Liebster blog award.  The following excerpt is from Liza’s post …

“If you are curious what Liebster mean, well it is a Greek word that means “favorite” in English.”

“The Criteria: The Liebster Blog Award is meant to showcase bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers. This is all done in the spirit of pay-it-forward.

The Rules: You must mention and link to the person who awarded you with Liebster, and mention 5 other blogs with fewer than 200 followers who you think worthy of the Liebster!”

“‘Liebster’ means ‘favorite’ or ‘dearest’ in German. This award, which originated in Germany, recognizes up and coming bloggers! In accepting this award, I agree to:

  • Thank the person that gave me the award and link back to their blog
  • Copy and paste the award to my blog
  • Reveal the 5 blogs I have chosen to award and let them know by commenting on their blog
  • Pay it forward by awarding it to bloggers they would like to honor

The five blogs I’m passing the award along to are featured below.  These are all blogs with fewer than 200 followers and they all have great ideas and projects to share …

Jessica at The Junk Nest was my first-ever blogging follower, discovering me just days after I launched.  Check out her bottle cap candle tutorial … she has me thinking about all the crazy things I could do with bottle caps.

Jody at Homey Home Design has me rethinking my kitchen cabinet color …

Kelly at Hooked on Home Décor is a former Chicagoan who now resides in Philly … we did the reverse moves …

Chrissy at The Taylor House has a beautiful bathroom redesign you should check out …

… and Amyd at Four Corners Design caught my eye with her very cute Felted Wool Vases that she made without purchasing a single thing.

I hope you’ll visit these blogs and join the ranks of their followers – hey, it’s easy, it’s free, and it doesn’t require a promissory note of a first-born or anything …
