"Liebster is a German word meaning dearest, beloved or favorite. The Liebster Award is given by bloggers to other bloggers - intended to showcase exceptional blogs. The Liebster Award is recognition from a peer, for which I feel very honored. My thank you goes to my long time friend and fantastic fiber artist - Vita Marie Lovett. Vita recreates old doors with rusty door knobs and latches, lace curtains in the window, flowers growing up the side all done with paint and her amazing threadpainting. The first time I saw one of her doors, I thought I would get splinters if I touched it - that realistic - that good!. Her attention to detail is like no other, you've just got to check it out for yourself.
One of the rules that come with the award is to select five exceptional blogs to be given the next Liebster Award. My choices for the Liebster Award for their creative blogs are the following and I must say, I love every one of these blogs for different reasons. So please check them out - the color, the creativity - the talent is inspiring.
First is my friend Marilyn Wall from South Carolina who does beautiful nature quilts but most recently has turned her attention to photo transfers after taking a workshop from Pat Mink. She's doing some incredible things with layering and printing.
Marylou Haynes whose blog I discovered by chance and fell in love with it. She is a mixed media artist, a photographer, a maker of altered books. When you open her blog, the imagery will pull you in. Marylou also offers tutorials on her blog, something I love and appreciate and lots of "give-aways", something else I love. Below is a sampling of her work.
5 blogs for you to explore all so different and unique from each other, sure to entertain, delight, educate and inspire you. Till next time...
