Check out some of the GREAT Blogs I follow

Greetings from LA (Louisiana - I know, Californians immediately think Los Angeles). I am actually accross the country meeting with some key clients - and having great success - thank you Lord.

As I was leaving - I received a comment from Donata at DK's Craft Cafe that she had honored my blog with the Liebster Blog Award.

For those who haven't heard of it before, the award is designed to recognize and promote blogs that have less than 200 followers.
I really didn't start this blog for followers - although I have found it good to follow people when I see something that inspires me (And please - I would love to have you follow me if anything I present inspires you ar just makes you laugh when you need it). It is also nice to see what people come up with in their creations. I mostly follow blogs where people are doing DIY furniture, but I also follow some friend's blogs unrealted to decor - and some travel blogs since my real job takes me to many different airports and college towns.

I have noticed that most bloggers are women - but the industry that I am in also has a lot of women - so please don't think that I'm a freak stalker. If you I like your blog - I will follow it - and I will normally review blogs weekly and comment on items that interest me - many times I will remain silent and just read.
It is my turn to choose five other blogs for the same award. Here are the rules:

1) Thank the person that gave it to you. Thank You Donata!

2) Link back to their blog
3) Put the award in your blog
4) Present the award to 3-5 blogs with less than 200 followers
5) Leave a comment to let those blogs know that you've recognized their awesomeness!

The five blogs that I so gladly follow are:

Crafty in Canada - totally cool furniture redone - in the COLD of Winter. Great job! Thanks for your inspirations of redoing old stuff.

Mama with a Dash of DIY Drama - again, totally cool stuff.

Orphaned Decor - taking trashed furniture and "upcycling" to create works of true beauty.

Pauline Frommer's Daily Briefing - Pauline probably has no idea who I am, but I do read your blog and love it.

The Retail DIYet - Great message - take a diet from buying new and find something that you can DIY yourself and bring it back to life!

Thanks ya'll - is that how you do that? Y'all? Anywho - you know what I mean. Go check out these blogs and send them some love. I hope they inspire you as they have me.
