Liebster Blog!

Believe it or not, but my blog received it's first ever award!!! Needless to say that I was very surprised and absolutely delighted! What a great idea and what a great feeling that somebody gets inspired by what I do! I think there is no greater reward for any artist!

So, My dear Sandra Van Doorn! Thank you very much!!!

Liebster is a German word meaning "dearest" and the award is given to bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. The award has a few stipulations:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it you.(may i add this is for good karma?)

2. Reveal your five blogger picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.

3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.

4. Hope that people you have sent the award to forward it on to their favourite bloggers.
And here goes my list!
1. Tiny Red - Is a relatively new blog of a fantastic artist and illustrator! She writes about other brilliant artists as well as shows her own work, and I always find something special and inspiring on the pages of her blog!
2. Daria Jabenko - is one of my favourite artists ever! I saw and fell in love with her gorgeous dreamy work long before I found her blog! She is a huge inspiration to me not only as a professional but as a person!
3. Masha Bricks - creates amazing dolls! I even drew one of them! There is so much imagination and attention to detail, it's unbelievable!!! Each doll is a small masterpiece with it's own story!!!
4. Elizabeth Rose Stanton - I just love her quirky art! It is soo different from what I do, but so expressive and some times very funny! Hew blog makes me smile!
5. Lucy Boden - her art is just so cute and cuddly and sweet and lovely and bright and cheerful and.... Lots of things actually!
Here you go! Enjoy!
