"Amore"   amy duncan   2011

My Saturday morning was off to a grand start when I turned on my computer and discovered that I was the recipient of the Liebster Blog Award from Linda over at it all started with paint.  Thanks Linda!

Linda is a relatively new blogger - sharing her creative talents at
re-decorating her home on a budget...and doing quite well with limited funds but unlimited energy, inspiration and creativity.

‘Liebster’ means ‘favorite’ or ‘dearest’ in German. This award, which originated in Germany, recognizes up and coming bloggers and is meant to showcase bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers. This is all done in the spirit of pay-it-forward.

In accepting this award, I agree to:

  • Thank the person that gave me the award and link back to their blog (check!)
  • Copy and paste the award to my blog  (check!)
  • Reveal the 5 blogs I have chosen to award and let them know by commenting on their blog
The drumroll please...I have decided to focus on five artists whose work (and blogs) I find totally inspiring...struggling artists can never get enough praise...these five are worthy of this award...and so much more...I hope you will visit each of these blogs and show your support of the creative spirit!


  1. I am humbled...truly...to be one of the five you have chosen! Really!!! Thank you ever so much...this does mean a lot to me!!!

    Wow...now the pressure is on to pick five artists to pass this award onto!!! This will be fun!!!

    (In the words of Ralphie's dad, "Hot damn! I've won a major award!!)

  2. Thanks Amyd! I'm going to spend my Sunday exploring your Liebster picks ...

  3. Waking up to this is like drinking coffee with cream and not skim milk. You're so right about how deeply support is appreciated. And I get a charge out of supporting others, too. I am delighted to keep this going and am looking forward to writing and linking and choosing. Thank you extremely for honoring my efforts here in blogworld!

  4. Thank you so much! I feel honored. and now the pressure is on to pick my 5, that is going to be hard, since there are so many talented artist bloggers out there.

    But I will select carefully, and pay it forward.
    thank you again!
