I am tickled pink that J.Govan and Design Studio nominated me for the Liebster Award. What the heck is a Liebster Award you ask? (or you may not ask for the seasoned bloggers :) But I am a newbie and I asked myself this question and was educated by fellow awesome blogger Jai. Please check out her blog as well, I am amazed at the many and diverse roles/interests she has.......AKA superwoman.
This award is a way to connect new bloggers into the wonderful community and resource world of blogging and encourage their endeavors. Thank you Jai for your nomination and I am so excited to have the opportunity to participate in it!
Now my partner in crime Jen Kreckel is back to work full-time and can no longer participate with me on this site. This blog came into creation because of our wonderful friendship and her personality will always be an inspirational guide for me. Good luck Jen!
Alright so now onto the rules of the game:
- Answer questions from the blogger who nominated you and mention them in your post.
- Nominate 11 new blogs with 500 or less followers.
- Post 11 new questions for your nominees to answer.
- Tag your nominees and leave a comment on their blog letting them know they have been nominated.
What/Who inspires you?
I get inspiration from family, friends, and human beings in general . I am a people person and constantly get inspired by others kindness and love. This is what drives me to want to be a better person and make changes for the better.
Where do you like to travel?
I like to travel to Northern Ontario Canada. My family lives in the Sudbury and Manitoulin Island area of this beautiful cottage country.
What does your mate/family/husband do to support your vision?
LOL. This is a funny question to me because I drive my husband crazy about my obsession with sewing and he says "You got to be kidding me" a lot!! or "Are we going to eat some time tonight? Or should I order pizza again" But in all seriousness I think he admires my tenacity for learning. After all he did buy me my new best friend named Dream Weaver :)
What are the goals for your blog?
I would like to learn new skills to improve the look of the site and make it more user-friendly.
Where are you located?
I am located in South Orange County in a small town called San Clemente California.
What are some challenges while bringing your vision to life?
Definitely computer illiteracy when it comes to this blog. I have learned a lot but have a long way to go.
List some hobbies other than blogging.
Well we all know I love to sew and cook. I also go on different tangents and have been known to get obsessed with knitting, painting, quilting, nail art, baking, bread making and hmmmm I think that is it. Oh wait I have a weakness for makeup and fancy hairstyles too.
Do you have fashion/art school experience? From where?
I started off College in Graphic Design in the early 90's but there was a teacher strike after 2 months of school and I started worrying I would be a starving artist so I dropped out and got a Nursing Diploma instead. Two years ago I took a seamstress course through an online course offered by Penn and Foster.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I would love to have a job related to one of my passions, I may try to expand my skills and style and see where that takes me.
How often do you update your blog?
I try to post every few days at least. This week my children are on spring break and it's been a bit tough to get to the computer.
What was the last book you read?
Hmm embarrassingly my Saunders NCLEX review book. I need to take a test here in California to get my Nursing license for this state. The reading is cutting into my sewing time though ;)
I will be nominating 11 new bloggers and posting my new questions in my next blog. Thanks for reading about me. Thanks again to J.Govan and Design Studio.
