I am so honoured and grateful to have been nominated for the Liebster award by Found this Painted that, an inspiring blog about how to decorate your home on a small budget. I have also been nominated by the talented Kat who blogs about her jouney to becoming a full time designer

To begin with, I had absolutely no clue what this award is. I was just so happy someone liked my blog enough to nominate me! After doing some research I found out that The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. It’s a way for the blogging community to share the love and to give a blogger some recognition. Liebster is a German word meaning endearing, beloved, dearest. I do feel the love after being nominated!

For me, I think this is what the award really is about. It’s the gift of one blogger to another to make them feel special through recognition and a sense of belonging by being part of a supportive community.

Thank you again Found this Painted that and Kat xoxo
