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.
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!
