And the Leibster Award Nominees Are....


I got nominated for the Leibster Award! I got nominated, I got nominated!  Thank you Desiree over at So Sew Mama for thinking I am worthy and nominating me! Your awesome! Whooo-Hoo! I was one eleven nominees this award was bestowed upon!

Now you ask, "What exactly is a Leibster Award?"  Well dear readers, it is a nomination from another blogger, that means your blog is an up and coming blog!  It is for bloggers that have less than 200 followers, that deserve some recognition and support. We all need a little support to keep on blogging, right? Well, the award is passed on to other bloggers that fit the criteria, to help spread the word!  It is also a fabulous way to get to know your fellow bloggers!

From what was passed on to me, my predecessors  have researched the word leibster.  Leibster is a German word meaning; sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. 

The Rules are simple

1. Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to.
3. Choose 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them in your post.
4. Go back to their page and tell them about the award.
5. No tag backs.
