The outrageously humorous and "creatively insane" author of  Men with Silly Putty by Susan Joy Clark has graciously nominated me for the Liebster Award, and with great pleasure I accept! Thanks Susan for remembering me and my little blog.

What is the Liebster Award?
Good question.  “Liebster” is a German word meaning beloved or dearest.  In the blogging world, the Liebster Award is online recognition given by bloggers to other new bloggers for enjoying or valuing their work.  It is meant to highlight and credit favorite new up and coming blogs within our writing community.

Once nominated, a blogger is asked to answer 11 questions provided by the nominating blogger.  They are then expected to nominate other favorite new bloggers and come up with a list of 11 new questions for those nominees.  This keeps the love going!
