It does perplex me as to why scrapbooking is so very niche in this country. It's such a wonderful hobby. There is the preserving of the memories. The wonderful social aspect of it if you find yourself a good crop to attend. The buying of the pretty paper. And the holding of the pretty paper. And the looking again at the pretty paper.
But, one great aspect to this lovely hobby is the blogging. And the wonderful Svjetlana has very kindly passed onto me, the 'Liebster blog' award :) (Liebster means 'dearest' in German for all those of you out there who are as rubbish as me at languages :)
The idea of this one is promote small blogs of less then 200 follower and pass it to 5 other small blogs. These are the rules :
To accept the award, you must:
- Link back to the person who gave it and to thank them for thinking of you.
- Post the award to your blog.
- Give the award to 5 bloggers (with less than 200 followers) that you appreciate and value.
- Leave a comment on the blogs of the five people you have chosen to let them know.
So, I've had a good think about this and here are are my picks... Great crafters each one, make sure you visit their blogs and have a look at their wonderful creations.
I'm still having a little think about my forth and fifth choice... I read a number of wonderful writers blogs and I am tempted to send this award further afield to them... but then again, I'm thinking maybe I'll keep it crafty... when I decided I will add to the list.
While making my mind up, here are a couple of layouts I made at the crop on Saturday with the lovely Crop Tarts in Donnycarney :)
