Jo Reimer of One a Day http://joreimer.blogspot.com has blessed me with the Liebster Award and in the spirit of the award I'm paying it forward. Though I don't usually do blog awards, this one is worthwhile if it helps increase traffic for other blogs and helps you find blogs that are new to you and are worth your time to read and follow.
ABOUT THE AWARD
This award was designed in the pay it forward fashion. Once you've been nominated, you award it to five blogs that you like that have fewer than 200 followers, to encourage new visitors to visit these blogs.
RULES FOR ACCEPTANCE
Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to their blog. Post the award onto your blog. Give the award to five bloggers who you appreciate that have fewer than 200 followers. Leave a comment on their blog letting them know that you have given them this awesome award!
PAY IT FORWARD
I tried to stay within the parameters of the rules but since many people don't include aFollowers area on their blog I didn't pay a great deal of attention to that.
Here are my choices of inspiring art blogs that feature lovely artwork and some step-by-step or how-to's. (alphabetical order, of course. how could one rank such a list?)
