Liebster Award

I have only been craft blogging for a short while but I've had the privilege of participating in several link parties and meeting many new bloggers.

Just recently I was nominated by Nicole, at for the Liebster Blog Award. She has a great blog and you should check it out. I am happy to accept the nomination and look forward to getting to know my nominees better!

About the Liebster Award:

The Liebster Award's origins are pretty much a mystery. Bloggers nominate other bloggers that have 200 or less followers. “Liebster” is German for “favorite,” so this is kind of like the “favorite blog award.” It's basically a "Hey, that's a sweet little blog you've got there. Here's an award!" You can't just accept the award. You have to play by the (ever changing) rules and pay it forward. Then you can put the award on your blog for all to see.

The Rules:

1. List 11 facts about yourself.
2. Answer the 11 questions given to you.
3. Create 11 new questions for the bloggers you nominate for the award.
4. Choose 11 bloggers with 200 or less followers to nominate.
5. Go to each bloggers page and let them know about the award.
6. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.

So here are 11 Facts about me:

1. I'm just going to put it out there... I'm terrified of white boys with beards.
2. I say 'bless you' when my cats sneeze.
3. I have a bad habit of interrupting people.
4. My favorite animal is the alpaca.
5. I subconsciously associate people with colors, ask me what color reminds me of you.
6. I fall asleep during movies.
7. I get offended when people show up at my house unannounced.
8. I recently started getting really bad motion sickness, especially on elevators.
9. I don't have a favorite band, artist, or even song.
10. I love running through people's sprinklers.
11. I speak no languages aside from English.

Here are my 11 Questions to my nominees: 

1. What is your favorite book?
2. What do you do for fitness?
3. Do you carry Hand Sanitizer in your purse?
4. Blogger or Wordpress and why?
5. If you could live anywhere on earth, where would it be?

7. Starbucks beverage of choice?
8. Who was your favorite president and why?
