Liebster Award

I wanted to give a shout-out to Riya at Yori2Yayie. I was pleasantly surprised last weekend to see that they had "nominated" me for a Liebster Award. From what I can tell, the Liebster Award is a cyber ribbon to be granted new blogs for their contributions to the blogosphere. :D

This award was designed to be a blog award in the pay it forward fashion. Once you've been nominated, you award it to five blogs that you like that have fewer than 200 followers, to encourage new visitors to visit these blogs.

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 fewer than 200 followers. Leave a comment on their blog letting them know that you have given them this awesome award!

Here are five awesome blogs that I think you should check out:
I hope you can take a moment to visit all these lovely blogs!
In case you were curious, I couldn't find the Liebster Awards origins. What I was able to find: it has different rules depending on the chain; it dates back to 2010. 

Breaking the Silence

I feel that after this long break I should have a really legit reason for not blogging. Sadly, I don't have anything really exiting to report. Between the daily activities, our weekend out of town, and my almost pneumonia, I have not spent a lot of time in my craft room. Okay... that isn't completely true. I lied. I did manage to squeeze out a couple of Valentine's Cards. And I have been spending some time sorting out my recent purchases.
