Liebster Award and Monday Listicles

I was nominated for another Liebster Award by one of my favorite bloggers, Tamra Pope! I am so honored to be nominated by Tamra - it's like being knighted by a super nice CTMH version of Martha Stewart. Thank you so much!


Liebster is a German word meaning "Beloved," "Favorite," or "Dearest." This award is a peer to peer award in which fellow bloggers present the award to their favorite bloggers with less than 200 followers. The origins of this award is unclear, but is believed to have originated by a German blogger. This award was designed to be a blog award in the pay it forward fashion to share your dearest and most beloved blogs that have less than 200 followers.


Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to their blog. Post the award onto your blog. Give the award to five bloggers who you appreciate that have less than 200 followers. Leave a comment on their blog letting them know that you have given them this awesome award!

This is the fun part! I follow a LOT of it my hobby, so it was a hard choice, made a smidgen easier since Tamra also nominated a bunch of my other favorite small blogs too. Here are just 5 of the  fabulous blogs with less than 200 followers that I would like to pass the Liebster Award on to and a bit on why I love them!

Mary and Rachel at
Amazing Cricut based projects!

Laura at
One of the few scrapbook based sketch blogs I've found - if only I lived in Canada!

Eileen at
Every post is amazing. Not kidding.

Diann at
Ditto - love the details in her CTMH based projects!

Tracey at
Make sure you peek at her SPOOKY letters project. Jaw dropping...

There are so many really fab bloggers out there - thanks a bunch for all the inspiration, Stampin' Friends! I wish I could nominate y'all!

Onward to more fun - it's Monday Listicles Time with the fabulous Stasha from The Good Life. This week's topic is all about my favorite season of the year...

10 Autumn Must Haves

1.  Uggs. I love my Uggs in the cold, wet PacNW. I'm considering these for this Winter...ok, more like wishing, but dude, the sequins! They practically have my name on them!

2. A new purse. I'm not an expensive accessories kind of girl (#1 Uggs wish notwithstanding), so I bought this new purse for fall today. It's brown, a bit more rugged, and can be zipped shut, avoiding the wet purse contents I kept dealing with in my summer flowery purse/July rain combo.

3. Peppermint Hot Chocolate. I may be off the coffee, but Starbucks is roping me back in...

4. Fermented Cod Liver Oil. I know - sounds weird, but I swear it's been instrumental in keeping my family healthy through some nasty rounds of flu AND it totally fixes up my detox issues (hip and joint pains).

5. new love of kombucha from Kookoolan Farms is what brought on said detox, but it's totally yummy and I'm feeling better than ever! Yea, probiotics!

6. Studio J online scrapbooking. Next month it's buy 9 get one free layouts...time to curl up with a venti #3 and scrapbook on the couch while watching Once Upon a Time and cuddling with my hubby!

7. The new Moonlight paper paper scrap the multiple pumpkin patch trips and halloween parties we have now been invited to attend.

8. Dinosaur Tracker outfits from match the Moonlight paper for our Festive Fall Fun activities! I like the boys to coordinate instead of long as they all match the scrapbook paper. This e-card on my FB page says it all!

9. Potato Cheese Soup.  Tomato Soup. Gluten Free Matzo Ball Soup. Anything soup related, all done in my fab crock pots. It's that time of year!

10. Lots of time in the crisp Fall air with my favorite little buddies, collecting leaves, choosing pumpkins, and sipping cider. Fall rules!

Now go check out all the new blogs and fab fall goodies...maybe write a listicle of your very own! Happy fall!

Wow! Thanks so much for the Liebster Award nomination! Much appreciated!!!! So fun to read your post :)

Your little buddies are adorable! Those sequined Uggs are pretty awesome too. I bought black Ugg knock-offs last year and they stained my feet purple! so I think I deserve a pair of real (and sequined) Uggs too.

Wendy Coffman said...

I vote yes for you...but I'll probably end up going practical and buying the regular old uggs at almost half the cost. The regular ones are ugly, but they are way better than the knockoffs - I tried the ones from Costco one year and got a blister! From glorified slippers! Maybe my hubby will read this and spring for sequined ones at Holiday/birthday time...

Congrats on the award, well deserved!! I am so sorry you are off coffee, that must be hard. But soups make everything better. And snuggling up with your boys.
