I was going back through some of my older posts, looking for a link someone had left me in a comment. That's when I noticed a comment from Andee over at "Match the Pictures" - way back in April - that I had never read!!!
(I'm not sure how that happened ... maybe it was during the time when my computer was giving me grief.)
It seems Andee gave Random Hearts the "Liebster Blog" award!
Liebster translates from German as "Favorite", and the award is given to up-and-coming bloggers with less than 200 followers.
Thank you so much, Andee - you have certainly made my day!
I have chosen 5 inspirational bloggers to receive this award ... It was hard to narrow down my list ... there are so many places I love to visit ...
Here are the guidelines:
1. Post the award to your blog.
2. Link back to the blogger who gave you the award.
3. Give the award to five (5) blogs with fewer than 200 followers.
4. Leave a comment for each blogger letting them know you have offered them the award.
Here are my nominations:
(in random order!)
Michelle Renee Bernard, "Yesterday's Trash" - who takes everyday "trash" and makes priceless treasures! Michelle inspires me with every post!
Beth, "Expect the Unexpected" - Beth is an incredible artist who finds so much beauty in the world ...
Marge, "Marges8's Blog" - Paper dolls have come a long way since I used to cut them out of catalogs when I was a kid ... and Marge's blog is full of beautiful paper creations that are truly art.
Pam, "Nature Whispers" - When my life is chaotic and I need some gentle breezes in my life, I go here. Pam's world gives me peace.
Susannah, "Wanderin' Weeta (With Waterfowl and Weeds)" - Susannah's thirst for knowledge of the tiny world around her has truly inspired me. From her I learned to "flip a rock" to see what is underneath ... to focus on the beauty that surrounds us all - in miniature!
I wish I could give an award to all of the wonderful people who have encouraged and inspired me on my blogging journey. I never would have believed I could find so many amazing friends ... so much inspiration ... so much beauty in the world!
