Hey all my name is Samantha, I'm 32 from England. Engaged. I have been handcrafting cards since I can remember from making mothers day cards at nursery to selling them to friends and family now. I love seeing the reactions on peoples faces when you make a unique handcrafted card just for them. I have also been a keen scrapbooker/photographer since I was about 5 when my parents started to foster and I always kept a scrapbook for each child we cared for - which goes with them to their new families so they don’t forget any precious memories of their childhood.

LIEBSTER blog award


Evening all not feeling overly clever today after another allergic reaction which I got late last night. 
I really have no clue as to what is going on with my body lately, even with the tablets I have taken for it when I feel one coming on completely wipes me out.

Anyways ..I was recently nominated by a fellow blogger for the “Liebster Blog Award”! I have not been as loyal to my blog posts as of late just through not having alot of time for my hobbies  or being too tired after work to come online which I need to make more time!!

I appreciate each and every one of you!

So what is a “Liebster Blog Award”?
The “Liebster Blog Award” is a way for fellow bloggers to share some blog love with some of their favorite blogs.  There are no judges or special rules but more of an award given to you by your peers.  The word “Liebster” is German and means “dearest”.
Upon receiving the “Liebster Blog Award”, the nominee will then write a blog post on their own blog and include the following:
  1. Share 11 Random Facts
  2. Answer 11 questions from the person who nominated you
  3. Name your nominees for the Liebster Blog Award
  4. Ask your nominees 11 questions
So let’s have some fun!

Thanks for joining!

Denise Price said...

Thanks, Sam! What does it mean to "stick in" at high school? Must be some British expression that I don't know.

Justie said...

Hey Samantha, congrats on getting nominated for a blog award. Thanks for having me be one of your nominates.

@Denise Price
Stick in means to be good at school and not slack off and skip classes.

Tríona said...
