Liebster Blog and Versatile Blogger Award

I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award from Scratch and Colour and Growing Up Nowhere: Stories You Will Love To Hate.

Thanks, guys! I am flattered and floored.  It’s a good week for me.

According to Jamie, “liebster” is derived from a German term meaning, “a close friend.” I am told the award is given to a writer with a blog that has fewer than 200 followers.

So, I will share the love.

Here are the rules of acceptance for the award:

1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog or sending them a tweet.

3. Post the award on your blog.

4. Bask in the love from some of the most supportive people on the internet—other writers.

5. And best of all – have fun and spread the karma.

It seems unfair to pick only 5 for this one. Two of my top picks are named above….


Now, the rest:

I was nominated for this by and . Thanks very much!

These are the rules for the Versatile Blog Awards:

  • Nominate 15 fellow bloggers.
  • Inform the bloggers of their nomination.
  • Share 7 random things about yourself.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  • Add the Versatile Blog Award picture on your blog post.

Here’s my list: ha got you back

among others which I have noticed were previously nominated…

7  random things about me:

1) I have 4 kids, all teenagers. Help me.

2) I am co-owner of a custom woodworking business with my wife Nikki.

3) I am a mountain biker

4) I love coffee, red wine and dark chocolate. I should live forever.

5) Oh and I like dark beer. (Especially Canadian beer, microbrewed, which I am drinking right now.)

6) I love used bookstores (and I read too)

7) I’m a sucker for a romantic movie. (But not alone- never alone…)

    Congratulations! Well deserved. Your artwork brings a bit of light to my Inbox every day. If you have fewer than 200 followers now, don’t worry, it won’t be long before you have many more.

    And 4 teenagers? Yikes! I have 2, and that’s plenty. Congratulations on making it through every day in a house with 4 teenagers.

    Dear Art-boy I,m very grateful that you nominated me for this Award. (Liebster means , the one I most love). But I will not pas it trough, not because I don,t like the idea ( and by now, I know the meaning of this Award) but because it will cost me a lot of time. My computer training is minimal and it will cost me a lot of time to type all these rules on 5 sites. I would not even know how to drag the sign Liebster award to my site.
    So I hope you will forgive me.
    It is the age you know.. I make my choices very carefully to use my time optimal.
    But I feel really honored and I will thank you again.
