My first award!!  I owe it all to Beth Stilborn a fellow 12x12x12 participant, who bestowed this upon me.

Liebster Blog LOGO

I’d like to thank my husband for encouraging me…….my mom & dad, my daughters…..

Seriously—I’m delighted.  What is the Liebster you ask? You don’t know?  *Gasp*  Neither did I.  “Liebster is a German word, meaning dearest or beloved, but it can also mean favorite.”   The  Liebster Blog Award may only be received by bloggers who have less than 200 followers.  Basically – we’re unknown in the blog-o-sphere.  BUT because we have received the Liebster, we can broaden our connections by passing it on and hopefully increase our audience. I’ve had a great time perusing and joining other blogs while seeking to pass on the Liebster.

The rules of the Liebster are 1) thank the person who gave me the award and link back to that person’s blog, 2) tell you 3 to 5 random things about myself,  3) pass the award on to 3 to 5 other worthy bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers and 4) copy and paste the Liebster logo on your blog. (The Liebster has been ubiquitous in the 12×12 world of late so I’m passing on to just 3 blogs).  They are:

Helga Pearson from S Africa who is wonderfully talented and also  a member of Mark Mitchell’s  How to Be a Children’s Book Illustrator class w/me.

Suzanne Delrizzo who has a very unique illustration medium and has her first book coming out.

KJV Blog Directory a wonderful resource of daily devotions, Christian Blog Links, Crafts, Teaching and more.

Now for three random things about me…

1.  I used to live in a lighthouse on the shores of Lake Michigan.  We had a round livingroom and my folks had a round bedroom.

2.  I love the old family sit-coms like Dick Van Dyke, Leave It To Beaver and Andy Griffith.

3.  When I go to art museums or even a gallery or look through an art book – I cry.  I try to hide it, but the way a person can express their heart on a two-dimensional canvas amazes me and moves me.

Thanks again for this award and I hope it brings new traffic to those I’m passing it to.
