I feel like I have so many things to post about all of the sudden. But I didn't want to let any more time pass before I talked about the Liebster award. I was really so honored when the amazing Debbie gave me this award. I really love her blog Visual Eye Candy and was so thrilled she picked me. Check out her blog and her DIY projects. She's awesome.
Up and coming, me? I have been blogging for about 10 months now and there have been times that it has been discouraging. There were a few months with only one comment the entire month and my followers have been few. For a long time my Grandma was my biggest reader. Hi Grandma! And truth be told I can't even get my Mom to read my blog. And that's okay! I love my followers. And I have been feeling the love lately, which is such a good feeling.
I started this blog because I had been wanting to for years and the timing was right. I started this blog because I have a passion for decorating and design. I started this blog because I need a creative outlet that is all mine. And I have grown to love my blog and I am proud of it too.
Another reason I was excited about this award was that I have been falling in love with new blogs popping into my world lately. And I am happy to nominate them for their own Liebster Blog Award. I would love for you to follow along with me here at Noted Home and I think these blogs are all worthy of your google reader as well so follow along.
If you are selected, you need to:
Choose FIVE up and coming blogs to award the Liebster to (they must have less than 200 followers)
- Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
- Post the award on your blog.

- Best of all, have fun and share the love!
And the Liebster Awards go to:
Jamie and Vashti of Like me Some are so sweet and have a great new design blog. I was instantly smitten with it and them.
My awesome sister in law Nichole has an awesome blog Cooking Cardmaking Crafts. I make her recipes a lot and the have all been so great. People at my husband's work have even asked to pay for a batch of my chocolate chip cookies which are not mine at all, they are Nichole's.
Jen West has a ridiculously awesome blog Jentrified. It has 200 followers but I am counting it because I was the 200th follower. She is hilarious and has amazing talent. I cannot believe I didn't find her sooner.
Kecia recently started Couture Zoo a great fashion blog that is quickly gaining popularity. I've really been enjoying it and do need to work on my mom wardrobe a bit :)
Marissa of Everyday Lounge Act is a good friend of mine and her blog is great. This is one of my favorite posts.
