Liebster Award!


Guess what?!  I've been nominated for a Newbie Blogging Liebster Award by Evi from Ev's Eats!   Check her out, she has some awesome recipes!  

What is the Newbie Blogger Liebster Award?

The Newbie Blogging Liebster Award is an award given to new bloggers, usually for those who have less than 200 followers, by other bloggers as a way to support each other in our journey to growing and building our blogs.

What are the rules?

  1. Post your award to your blog.
  2. Answer the questions you were given by the person who nominated you
  3. Nominate a small group of other new bloggers you’ve discovered
  4. Create 10 new questions for the nominees
  5. Thank the blogger who nominated you and link their blog. 

Here are Evi's questions for me:

  1. Why did you start your blog? 
           I've always been super crafty and I enjoy helping others learn how to make new things!  I'm really enjoying discovering new blogs and new ideas!

     2.Who are some of your favorite bloggers and why?
          Nicole from No Time for DIY ~ I am a little bit biased on this one.  Nicole happens to be a close friend of mine, but she is totally rocking her blog.  Her kids are adorable and she has amazing tutorials! She has a great eye and is one of the sweetest people I know.

          Jenny The Blogess ~ She is one of my blogging idols.  She is so hilarious, it is completely impossible not to die laughing reading her work.  She is also completely open about her own struggles and insanely generous.

          The Good Enuf Mommy ~ She is so funny and has a great, realistic, down to earth perspective on parenting.

     3.What are your short-term and long term goals for your blog?
          My short-term goal would just be to get myself on a consistent blogging schedule, lol.  With homeschooling, Girl Scout troop leading, prepping for craft fairs, etc... I'm still figuring out my scheduling.  Long-term, I would love for this to lead to gaining some great friendships and networking.

     4.If you could live anywhere in the world; where would you live? 
          There are so many places I would love to visit, but I really love Texas.  I can't wait until we have a nice big piece of land to spread out on!  

     5.What are your current top 5 favorite things?
          I love these quilting clips!  I very rarely use pins while I'm sewing anymore.

          My favorite bag.  I know it's a backpack, but seriously I carry a lot of stuff (what mom doesn't?)

          My new craft fair many pockets!

          Ashland Sugar Cookie Jar Candle.  Mmmmmm. (I bought it from Michael's last year and it's amazing)

          My Kitchenaid stand mixer.  My amazing husband got it for me for Christmas last year.  It's pale pink  like Monica's from friends!

     6.What’s your favorite food city and why?
         I've never actually visited a city specifically for the food.  I like figuring out how to make things at home, so I guess my city!

     7.What’s the easiest and hardest part about blogging for you?
          The easiest part of blogging for me is figuring out what I want to write about.  Generally, I constantly have ideas floating through my head (thanks, ADD).  The hard part is remembering to write them down before I forget.  Then I spend the rest of the day trying to remember what I forgot.  It's a vicious cycle really.
          The hardest part about blogging for me is setting the time aside to edit pictures, and write everything out.  Really, the picture editing is so time consuming and I'm not even doing any major work to them. 

     8.Name one thing you cant live without. 
          Caffeine.  Usually coke, sometimes coffee.  Don't judge. 

     9.What motivates you to continue blogging?
          Seeing people enjoy my creations or making their own!  I love it!  

     10.Relationship status? Any kids (2 or 4 legged)?
          Married! I have 3 kids (two girls, 14 and 12, and a boy who is 9) and 2 dogs (doxies).

  1. Congratulations on the award! My Kitchen-Aid mixer is one of my favorite possessions too. He (yeah, I've determined he's a boy) is industrial and steel gray. :-) No judging about caffeine - it's what keeps me moving! LOL

    1. Thank you! I love that your mixer is a boy!

  2. Congratulations on the award! I too am a caffeine lover! I love these awards it's a way for us to share the love, as I call it. . If you can post this on link parties that way you will get more exposure.


Keep it nice, ya'll!
