Liebster Blog Award

I’m totally overwhelmed. Turns out I’m nominated by even three lovely ladies for Liebster Blog Award. May from All Things Pretty, Miranti from Pen & Peplum and Corinne from Fresh paintings by Corinne Korda considered my small blog for this award given from bloggers to bloggers with less than 200 followers.
It’s a great way to take a small step further into the big world of blogging, gaining readers and getting some attention. I really appreciate everyone reading my blog!
So of course there are some tasks you have to accomplish as a nominee for this award. First of all you have to post 11 random facts about you. Then you answer the questions the lovely ladies who tagged you made up and come up with 11 other blog to pass on the award. To spice up the whole process you have to come up with 11 new questions for your awardees.
