Liebster Award

Linda M. over at Stitching in Suburbia passed the Liebster Award to me. 
The origins of the Liebster Blog award are somewhat unclear but the general consensus is that it originated in Germany, "Liebster" meaning favorite or dearest, to showcase bloggers with fewer than 200 followers.  Upon accepting the award the recipient must then pass it on to five more blogs of note.
Here are the guidelines:
Thank the person who gave me the award and link back to her blog.
She is a wonderful and very talented woman, be sure to visit her blog. (linked above)

Post the award on my blog.
The banner posted above is the award.  

Pass the blog award to five other bloggers.
I have sent emails to five other bloggers advising that I am passing along the Liebster Award to them.

List the bloggers to whom I have passed the Liebster award and let them know by commenting on their blogs.
1. Kim from Granny Stiches
2. Leslie from Leslies craft store
4. Terry from Shut up and stitch! 
5.  Cindy from Home of Cross Stitching
Share five random facts about myself that people do not know about me.
1. I just this week signed up to sell Mary Kay products but I have been thinking about doing this for a long time.
2. I love to paint and I love to take my Nikon out for walks and take pictures of anything I can catch in my lens.
3. My kids keep me crazy....oh wait, that's common knowledge.   Our family consists of myself, hubby, Lily, Kayla, Lucy-Fur (prissy Himalayan kitty), Molly (Cock-a-poo), Thumper (Lion-Head bunny) and 3 fish tanks (2 Bettas in separate tanks and the large tetra tank).  Yes, I live in a zoo.
4. I had plans to go to Art School after high school but was unable to do so.  I wanted to be an Art Teacher.
5. I have lived in the Pittsburgh, PA area my entire life but I love to travel.  I have been up and down the East coast all the way to Florida and then to Nassau Bahamas.  I have been to Canada many times. I went to Nova Scotia by way of Bar Harbor, ME and drove back through Niagara Falls and once came back through Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.  I have gone as far as Utah to the West.  I told my hubby when Kayla reaches 18 we were going to England.  


  1. Congratulations on your Liebster award! My dream vacation would be staying in a different English castle each week for a summer... I really am afraid to visit the UK because I may not want to come back *lol*
