...and the Liebster Blog Award Goes To...

By Corie @DesignDNAblog
We've been nominated by Jenna @ Rain on a Tin Roof for the Liebster Blog Award.  What is that you ask?  I had no idea either until I went over to check out her cute blog and read the description where she had been nominated.  I borrowed her description below:
"The Liebster Blog Award is an award given by bloggers to up and coming bloggers, most of whom have less than 200 followers (or have been blogging for less than 6 months). It is to show newer bloggers that they are appreciated, and to help spread the word about new blogs. It was created to promote appreciation and recognition among the blog world. Liebster translates to “dearest” (or favorite/best) in German. It is also known as the Love Blog Award."
What an honor to be nominated - Thank you Jenna for thinking of us!

4. Choose 11 new blogs you love and link them in your post.
5. Please leave me a comment on this post with the URL to your Liebster post so I can learn more about you.Questions set by my Nominator:
1. What is your dream home? I'm drawn to cozy, log cabin, cottage type homes (I've never lived in one but always look twice when driving by).  Nothing too dark and stuffy though - lots of natural light with fresh and clean colors and accessories.2. What is your favorite song and why?Just one?!  I guess it would have to be "Let's Stay Together" by Al Green.  It makes me smile every time I hear and I can't help but sing along - tone deaf and all!  I had the pleasure of seeing Al Green in concert about 10 years ago and it was amazing!3. What's your family like?Very small and very mighty.  We love hard, fight hard and are extremely protective of one another.4. What is your favorite blog post you have ever done and why?For the most part my posts are craft related but a year ago I posted something a little off topic.  I have a knack for pairing my friends up with their celebrity look-alikes which is when the Doppelganger post came to be.  I'm thinking of including a part 2 soon.... do you have a celeb look-alike? 5. What are your favorite blogs and why do you love them?C.R.A.F.T. is one of the first blogs I stumbled upon and I continue to follow her to this day.  Her content is easy to follow and entertaining and I love the pictures she takes - everything is so crisp, fresh and airy over there.  Check it out if you haven't already!Polish the Stars is a great blog all around but I especially LOVE her Halloween posts!Halloween Crafts is an excellent Halloween resource and she has another blog called Truebluemeandyou that's packed with all the latest crafty and diy trends!6. How long have you been blogging and why did you start?Initially I started blogging 3 or 4 years ago - It started as a personal diary but truth be told I wasn't committed and had no idea how to navigate through blogger so I walked away and didn't know how to log back into my ideas.  They are now lost in space.  September of 2011 I decided to give it another try mainly to share with my friends and family back home (I now live in AZ while they all are back home in Ohio).  7. Who is your hero?Hands down - My Grandpa is my Hero.  I remember having to write about my Hero as a child and it was always my Grandpa.  8. What is your favorite memory of all time?I don't have anything specific but in general my favorite memories always include family trips to Twilight Isle on Manitoulin Island (Ontario, Canada).  Great times!9. How do you want to be remembered?Selfless and Hilarious10. Who is your favorite author?It depends on the day really.  I just like books in general - it isn't always about the Author for me.  I enjoy Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels right now if I had to pick one.11. If you could meet anyone in the world, who and why?Yikes - this one is tough.  I choose this person because I'm stumped and I just can't sit here any longer thinking about this question.  Kandee Johnson - she reminds me of one of my sisters and she's extremely entertaining.  11 Blogs I nominate:Self Discovery
The Frugal Vegetarian
My Life With Three Boys
Happy Misadventures
A Bit O Whimsy
This is hard as it seems most of the blogs I follow have been around since before 2011 and have over 200 followers.  I'm half tempted to put up a link tool and ask you all to introduce me to your favorite "newer" bloggers.  I don't want to break the rules and anger the Liebster Blog Award gods but I'm at a loss....
