First Design Team and an Award!

Hi again!
I want to share some exciting news- Gingerloft has graciously asked me to be on their Design Team!  I am flabbergasted!  Honored!  Happy!  Excited!  You name anything good, and that is what I am right now.  Yea!  Go Team Gingerloft!  I am looking forward to getting to know Tami and working with the other team members.

My second exciting news is that I have been selected by Kenzie at Krafty Hugzz to recieve the LIEBSTER AWARD! Quick side-step- Kenzie's link is over on the right sidebar-cute, cute site.  She is a very unique person- please check out her blog.  You will be pleasantly surprised.  Back to the Liebster Award- it is given to blogs with less than 200 followers and passed from Blogger to Blogger, each hand picked by the previous recipient.  This award is not given lightly and takes much thought as to who will receive it.  There is a history to the Liebster Blog Award- it originated in Germany and means dearest or beloved, and Liebe is the word for love.  When one accepts the award they agree to:
  • Thank the person who gave them the award and link back to that person’s blog
  • Copy and paste the award to their blog
  • Reveal the 5 blogs they have chosen to award, commenting on their blog to break the news!
  • And lastly, hope those people nominated will do the above and keep the award going by accepting and awarding “The Liebster Blog Award” to 5 special bloggers of note that they too would like to honor.
I will be posting my award nominations very soon.  I want to take my time in picking small creative bloggers that deserve notice and such a privledge as the Liebster Award.

Oh, oh, I almost forgot.  I mentioned it in my last post but this added to the excitement of my weekend so I will tell you again that Chrissy on Make it Monday chose to spotlight my Patchwork Angel card and blog!  I am so delighted.

Well, it's been an exciting weekend for me.  I can tell you, I was so overwhelmed with joy yesterday, and a lot nervous too! Overwhelmed from such wonderful news swirling and swirling in my head!  The news of being asked and accepting to be on Gingerlofts Design Team, receiving the Liebster Award and spotlighted by Chrissy at Make it Monday.  I am truly blessed.  I hope your day is blessed too!  Super blessed.  Good things do happen.
