{Blog Awards}

Hello, ladies!  I hope y'all are having a great weekend so far.  Over the past few months, I have been given two awards by several different bloggers.  Each award involved posting about the award and then nominating other bloggers for the award, both of which I have yet to do.  Sometimes, it's all I can do to get my one craft tutorial posted each week.  (I know...Poor ol' me, right? LOL)  But I decided that I MUST thank the lovely ladies who gave me the awards, and I want to pay the love forward.  So here goes...

I was given the Liebster Blog award by the following lovely ladies:

Erika from Bliss Images and Beyond

Kimberly from Simply Living

Kate from Craft Whatever

From what I read on these ladies' blogs, liebster is a German word that means "dearest," "beloved," or "favorite."  This award is given to blogs that have less than two hundred followers.  The purpose of it is to show your appreciation for other bloggers and to encourage them.  If you are chosen to receive this award, you are supposed to link back to the person who gave it to you and then choose three to five other bloggers to receive the award.

So I am passing the award along to these five bloggers:

Shannon from Anythingology
Mitra from Mitralee
Jaimee from Craft, Interrupted
Kara from Pink. Cricut. Love.
Kayla from Anatomy of a Craft

The second award I received was the Versatile Blogger Award.

I was given this award by the following lovely ladies:

Vanessa from Home Sweet Butterfly
When you receive this award, you are supposed to link back to the person who gave it to you, tell seven things about yourself that your readers may not know, and pass the award along to seven other bloggers.  (One of the ladies said fifteen other bloggers, but I'm sticking with seven since I already listed five for the Liebster Award.)

Here are seven things about me y'all may not know:
  1. I am sort of afraid of sloths.  I saw a movie in a science class during middle school that had sloths in it.  They move so slowly, and they have those weird Captain Hook-esque claws.  I know if one tried to attack me I could definitely outrun it, but I think I would be frozen with fear as it slowly crawled to sink its scary claws in me!
  2. I've been singing since I was a child.  My husband plays guitar in our praise and worship band at church, and I sing female lead and harmony.
  3. I love the Disney channel!  My husband makes fun of me because of this.
  4. I have one sister; she's the only sibling I have.  She's five years younger than I am, and I love her to pieces.
  5. My husband was my first real boyfriend, and he's the only person I've ever been on a date with.
I'm passing the Versatile Blogger Award on to these seven bloggers:

Michelle from Michelle Paige
Beth from Alyssabeths
Jenilyn of Grits and Giggles
Gwen from Vintage Gwen
Lauryn from Love Notes by Lauryn
Katie from Pincushion Creations
Ashley from The Latest Find

I hope that y'all will take the time to visit some of these lovely ladies and leave them a comment or become a follower of their blogs.  I know that they will have some great posts in the future that you won't want to miss! :)
