Liebster Award

Just when I was thinking about how bad I need to work on the blog I received an email from Jodie and Paige from Sypsie Designs. They recently received a really cool award called the Liebster Award which is for smaller/new blogs that have yet to be discovered. As part of them receiving this award, they nominated other blogs, such as this one!!! So awesome, thank you ladies, this is just what we needed to get back into things!

How it works is fun and simple:

Award Rules

3. Present the Liebster Award to several other bloggers, who have blogs with 200 followers or less, whom you feel deserve to be noticed. Leave a comment on the blogs letting the owners know they have been chosen.
4. Upload the Liebster Award image to your blog.
