Joy at Joy in the Morning has kindly nominated me for the Liebster Award.

The Liebster Award is for bloggers with less than 200 followers.  Liebster is a German word meaning dearest. The award is given to up-and-coming bloggers who deserve recognition and support to keep on blogging.

Here are the "rules":
1. Answer the 11 questions given to you
2. Create 11 new questions for the bloggers you nominate for the award.
3. Choose 5* bloggers with 200 or less followers to nominate.
(I'm abbreviating a bit to try and avoid tag-backs)
4. Go to each blogger's page and let them know about the award.
5. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog!
