Liebster Award

15 Apr

I was blown away this morning when Fiona from Cursing and Crafting nominated me for a Liebster award, although I wasn’t quite sure what it was.

Turns out it is way to highlight blogs with less than 200 followers.

So this is how it works

1. Post eleven facts about myself.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set and create eleven questions for the people I’ve nominated.
3. Choose eleven people (with fewer than 200 followers) to give this award to and link to them in my post.
4. Go to their page and tell them.
5. Remember, no tag backs.

So here we go 11 facts about me
