Liebster Blog Award

First things first: I want to thank John Clinock, artist extraordinaire, poet, teacher, and blogger of the fabulous Art Rat Cafe for honoring me with a nomination of the Liebster Blog Award.  When you visit his blog, be sure to taste the chowder.

Now, about this award… (a little copy/paste going on here)

Originating in Germany, the Liebster Blog Award recognizes fresh bloggers with less than 200 followers. By accepting the award, it would be nice for the blogger to:

  1. Acknowledge the person that gave the award and link back to their blog.
  2. Copy and paste the award to your own site.
  3. Share 5 of your choice blogs to award and let them know by commenting on their blog.

And now for the fun part, which turned into the hard part because most of my favorite “new” blogs have kind of pottered out (quit posting months ago) or they do not qualify due to their amazing ability to quickly top 200 followers or they have already received this award. (The Liebster is a one shot deal… not like some of the just for fun awards that get passed around repeatedly.) So, instead of five, I am only nominating three.

{Side note to John: if five is a necessity, please notify two of your alternatives.}

Thus said, it is my privilege to nominate (by user names, all links open in new windows):

Elteee’s Living True
If anyone deserves this award, it is Elteee because her blog expresses the pure joy of living an artistic life. Her art is happy, or perhaps it is her own happiness that comes out in the art.  I always feel a sense of peace and happiness when I view her art.  Be sure to watch her slide shows!

Cilipower’s cilipower
Ms. Power is an award-winning fiber artist specializing in macrame.  She is relatively new to blogging so sometimes she is a little unsure of herself, but she is off to a great start.  I hope this award gives her a boost of blogging confidence. When you visit her blog, be sure to check out her “Solar Powered, Wind Assisted, Manually Operated Clothes Dryer” as well as “Leroy” and her beautiful knotted flowers.

Hallainen’s Little Things
Of course, I have to nominate an ATC blog!  This is one of the first blogs I followed and I still occasionally pop in to see the latest Artist Trading Cards.  Hallainen works mostly in watercolors and the quality of the realistic pieces puts my work to shame.   If you love ATC’s, this is a blog to follow.

Okay… I think that’s it.   Thanks for reading!
