Liebster Blog Award nominations
Blog awards are to reward and encourage bloggers in their blogging activities. The Liebster Blog Award is to encourage newer bloggers with less than 200 followers - and to encourage everyone to visit these blogs.
I was absolutely thrilled when I was nominated, so I hope that you are as well. I also love the little award badges that you can put on your blog's sidebar.
I was nominated for the Liebster blog award some weeks ago now but haven't done my all of my homework to earn it. The homework is to post 11 random facts about yourself (or 5, depending on the version of the Liebster rules that apply). I've done that bit.
The next stage is to nominate 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers (or 5 bloggers, depending on the version of the Liebster going around). I must ask these people 11 questions (or 5, once again, depending on which version of the Liebster is being used).
I think the rules that applied to my Liebster where the 5 nominations/5 questions/ 5 facts version, althoug I chose to do 11 random facts about myself. I took quite some time looking up what the Liebster was about. You can have a look at the guidelines and my random facts about myself at:
My nominations are:
Stephanie from "On the Mend". Stephanie has not been able to sew for a few years - you can find out why on her blog: http://threadsovmetal.blogspot.com
2/. Elise who makes stunning garments, frequently from Burda magazine patterns, and often hand finished. Her photgraphs are always beautifully presented. Her blog is at: http://whatthedormousesews.blogspot.com
3/.Aisha likes to inspire other bloggers to create garments that are couture or inspired by designer garments. She creates lovely garments, so do visit her blog: http://sewcouture.blogspot.com
4/. Regina makes some really lovely clothes all beautifully finished. You can find Regina at: http://reginageesplace.blogspot.com
5/Gabrielle, who sews lovely garments, both "grown up" and childrens wear - and her photography is stunning. I've only recently discovered Gabrielle's blog: http://upsewlate.blogspot.com
So, do check out what you have to do. You'll find the guidelines on this post:
Your five questions are:
1/. What was the first garment you ever made?
2/. What was your worst sewing experience?
3/. What are your favourite garments to sew
4/. What are you making right now, or what do you plan to make next?
5/. And what is your favourite sort of chocolate?
Don't forget to post 5 random facts about yourself, and to nominate 5 other bloggers. You can take your time doing this if you like. I did.
And once you have done your homework, then you can put a Liebster Blog award on your sidebar.
If you want to pass on this, why not put the Honorary Liebster blog badge on your sidebar? I did that while taking my time on this part of the award.
Looking forward to seeing how your sewing and blogging activities unfold in the future.
