First the talented and very kind Vivienne awarded me a rather unusual award called the
Thank you Vivienne, and please do go to visit her blog, I love reading it. I met Vivienne last year and we have become great blogging buddies.
This award is slightly different and as it is given to crafty-blogs, which have less than 300 readers, to encourage more people to visit you and see your handmades. You are asked to then pass it on to 3-5 other crafty blogs.
Vivienne and I both have little Etsy shops and I am thrilled that she included me in her choices to pass the award on to.
Normally I ask all my blogger friends to take my awards and pass them on. Awards are great way of showing you new blogs. I agree that the Liebster blog is a little different so this time I will actually name a few bloggers who do fulfil this criteria i.e not the "big guys!"
They are...drum roll!
