The Liebster Award

I was so surprised - and delighted! - earlier this week, to receive the Liebster Award from Chareen at Every Bed of Roses.  She is a seasoned Mama and homeschooler who clearly has a heart for encouraging and equipping!  Her blog is filled with inspiring ideas and helpful tips - I've been blessed by my time there, and I hope you will take a minute to visit her, too!

Thank you for your kindness, Chareen.  This was truly a blessing! :)

And I must say, this has been a fun way to meet some lovely new bloggers, too!  The Liebster Award is for small (200-followers-or-less) blogs that can be described as sweet, beloved, kind or favorite.  In order to accept the award, the honored blogger must write a post to thank the giver, with a link back to their blog...and then pass on the encouragement to five more bloggers.

What fun!

So here are my five choices.  I hope you will join me in encouraging them today!

Each in their own way, these bloggers have been a blessing and encouragement to me in my journey as a homeschooling Mama.  I am so happy today to return a little bit of that joy!  Kind, beloved, sweet and favorite are all very appropriate words to describe these lovely blogs...

Joy at Artful Homemaking :: her gentle, sweet words and ideas for creative living and homeschooling are always a source of inspiration for me.

Carissa at Stella's Apron Strings :: she paints a beautiful picture of gracious homemaking and mothering with lovely photos and her warm spirit.

Amanda at Homegrown and Beeyoutiful :: I am always refreshed by her gentle way of encouraging Mamas to love their families and find beauty in simple things.

Lisa at Olive Plants All Around My Table :: a seasoned homeschooling Mama whose wisdom and encouragement I greatly appreciate.

And my new favorite crafting blog, which I just found this past week while looking for a tutorial on crocheted roses...

Lauren at Daisy Cottage Designs is a Christian Mama who keeps an ETSY shop, and generously posts some very nice tutorials for her items, which are just about the cutest crocheted things I've seen!

Wishing you all a bright and joy-filled Thursday!

Many Blessings,


  1. congratulations! "sweet, beloved, kind"... I agree, those describe you well!

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Things are pretty busy around our house, so I can't always leave as many replies as I would like to. But please know that I look forward to reading every note you send my way - they brighten my day! Blessings,Collette
