And the First Liebster Awards Go to ...!

I finally just made myself finish the questions, so that I could give away the first two Liebster awards! You see, there's this Rococo Roamer out there, and she's having a fantastic give-away! I wanted you all to get to know her great blog and get a chance to win!  So Brittany, you are my first awardee!  Your tasks are below.  :-)

Please everyone visit Brittany's blog, The Rococo Roamer 
and give her some blog love. 
Who knows, you just might win the giveaway!

My second Liebster Award goes to Susan at Eclectic Shorebird.  Susan is artsy and eclectic, and her blog shows the range of her creativity. You might be interested in her "Tea in the Library" features, her poetic posts about childhood, humorous posts about the trials of nature, such as trials brought by skunks, or the wonderful printable flashcards she makes, like these:

Please visit Susan's blog at Eclectic Shorebird 
and give her some blog love!

The guidelines of this award are as follows:
  • Thank the blogger who gave you the award and link back to them in your acceptance post!  Download the award image and post on your blog.
  • Share 11 interesting things about yourself.  Don't be shy, and don't worry if they aren't relevant to the topic of your blog.  They aren't supposed to be!
  • Answer the 11 questions that the blogger who awarded you asked in their post.
  • Create your own set of 11 questions for the next recipients of the award.
  • Pass the award to some of your own favorite bloggers!  Each awardee should have less than 200 followers for their blog.
My questions for my awardees:
1. If you had only one thing to drink besides water, what would it be?
2. What was the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to you?
3. If you could change your name, what would it be?
4. What is the most exciting thing you've done, bought, or had happen to you in the past 6 months?
5. If you could do anything in life that you wanted, or be anything, what would you do or be?
6. What would you like to become better at?
7. What music stimulates your creativity? Or do you like silence?
8. What creative activities do your husband and/or children pursue?
9. What was your favorite job or activity as a teen?
10. What skills, gifts, or abilities do you have that most people don't know about?
11. Are you a messy messy or a neat freak?

So excited that you chose me for the Liebster aware, I've never been picked before! What fun! And thanks for letting everyone know about my giveaway! I'll be sure to write an acceptance post and now I have to search for some new bloggers to share the love with! Shouldn't be hard. Thanks again!

Laura, Thank you so much! I read a lot of blogs and to be recognized by the author of one of my favorites is very nice! I enjoy your other pick too - The Rococo Roamer. I'm drooling over her give away now.

Hi Laura,
So glad you stopped by my blog! I sent you an email. Your comment came to me from a no-reply address, so I used the email address on your profile. Hope it reaches you.

Just became a follower!
