It’s a Major Award!

Posted on: April 6, 2013


Back a long time ago, when I started this blog, I didn’t really think it would be much.  I didn’t really think anyone but my mom would read it, and even then I wasn’t sure she would either!  The original plan was to use it to keep myself in check when it came to my “mom fluff” but that didn’t work…even a little bit.  However, it has become a fun place to share my crafty stuff, and starting soon it’s going to be a place to share a new adventure (Oooo, exciting!)

So, what am I getting at here?  Well, seems that people are reading me.  And, I was thrilled to see that Cricket from Crochet Cricket had nominated me for a Liebster Blog Award.  If you don’t already know, the Liebster Award is that there is not a real award, just a recognition from a fellow blogger. There are no judges, no special rules. No website with an official team to congratulate you and hold your hand. It’s mostly what you want it to be. If you receive the award, you can 1) accept it and 2) pass it along.  I’ve decided to pass it along!

But first, my acceptance:

How it works?

  1. Thank and link back to the blogger who presented you with the award.
  2. List 11 random facts about yourself
  3. Answer 11 random questions
  4. Create 11 random questions for your nominees
  5. Present/nominate a Liebster Blog Award to more newbie bloggers!  (no tag backs)

11 Thing random facts about me

  1. I was the only righty in a family of 5. My parents and brothers are all lefties!
  2. I can say my alphabet backwards VERY fast.
  3. My favorite color is purple.
  4. My favorite number is 18.
  5. I love TV shows about creating things or figuring things out (ie: Project Runway, Face Off, Mythbusters, etc).
  6. I met my husband on a blind date.
  7. I never want to travel anywhere that they don’t speak English.
  8. I will always stop to look at a rainbow.
  9. I am scared to death to be on stage, but I also love to be on stage. The love usually trumps the fear.
  10. I love Phineas and Ferb more than my kids.
  11. I would be happy if I never saw another spider for the rest of my life.

11 Questions from Crochet Cricket:

  1. What craft/crafts is your blog about?  I mostly blog about crochet, but it includes other things I’m interested in too, not just crochet.
  2. What is your favorite holiday and why? I love Halloween.  There is something so fun about dressing up and pretending to be someone different.
  3. What is your favorite outdoor activity? I love nature walks.
  4. Who is your favorite person from History and why? I’m not a huge history buff, but I do enjoy reading and learning about Marie Antoinette.  I think her story is so much deeper than the surface tells.  What a life to have lived for such a young girl.
  5. What is your favorite color to use in your crafts? Tiffany Blue
  6. What Craft sites do you look at in your spare time? The Yarn Box, The Crochet Crowd, All Free Crochet, and Pinterest (does that count??  It does now!)
  7. What is your favorite kind of music? As far as genre I don’t really have a favorite.  We’ve listened to Contemporary Christian almost exclusively for about 3 years.  However, I could listen to acoustic guitar all day long.
  8. If you could be an animal, what would you be?  I would be a song bird, because they can fly and sing.
  9. How many pairs of shoes do you own? 6.  Really, only 6.  And, it was 5 before Easter, but I bought a new pair for church 🙂
  10. What is your favorite TV series? Once Upon a Time
  11. If you could have one super power, what would it be? Teleport.

 My Nominees:

1. Crafty Goul

2. Doo and the Oddistuffies

3. Crochet Makes Me Happy

4. Groovy Pumpkin

11 Questions from Unwrapping Mommy:

1. Who inspired you to learn your craft?

2. What is a food you didn’t think you’d ever try but did?

3. What is the last thing that made you laugh until you cried?

4. What is your favorite smell?

5. If you could add an unconventional tool to a Swiss Army Knife what would it be?

6. What is your earliest childhood memory?

7. What is one talent you wish you had?

8. Snow or Beach?

9. Do you have a Tattoo?  If yes, what is it? If no what would you have if you got one?

10. Sunrise or Sunset?

11.  If you could tell your 16-year-old self something, what would it be?

Thanks again to Crochet Cricket for sharing the love with me!  I’m glad you enjoy my words enough to pass on this great honor.

Let's show them what a bunch of 5th - 8th graders can do!!!! #wgipittsburgh #colorguard #fairyguardmother #miamisburg #ohio #itsallinthestateofthemind 9 years ago this timid critter got on the bus for kindergarten, almost 9 months ago we made (practically forced) her go to flag camp, and today her color guard was ON FIRE. This group of determined 5th - 8th graders beat NINE High School teams. Proud is an understatement! #MEPA #competition #colorguard #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #jetset #wgi #Miamisburg #winterguard #youcandoit #nevergiveup I found this while cleaning out old files, and I was caught by the ridiculous joy on this little critter's face. May it never fade ❤️
