I am so honored, humbled, and extremely grateful to be nominated by the amazing Jessica Christensen Branham from Call Life Crazy for the Newbie Blogging Liebster Award. (Be sure and check out here blog.) This is my first blogging award, and I am excited to pass it along to other bloggers.

- Thank the blogger who nominated you and link their blog.
Here are the questions Jessica gave me, along with my answers.
Why did you start blogging?
My life was going through some major changes. I really wanted a way to express my creativity, and stay inspired.
What is one tip you would give to other bloggers?
Don’t focus so much on numbers. Just enjoy writing, sharing, and making blog friends. The numbers will come eventually. Also setting up a routine helps. I post four favorite DIY projects on Monday and co-host Laugh and Learn Link-up on Tuesday. The rest of week is still open, but I hope to have regular features figured out soon.
What do you like most about yourself?
I love to be creative, but it’s hard with 3 kids.
What is your favorite quote?
My quotes change a lot! But this scripture has helped more times than I can count, Phil. 3:13-16 ‘Forgetting the things behind and stretching forward to the things ahead’. (A few times it has helped: to move past my miscarriage and try again, to forgive friends, and keeps me stay focused on future.) To see some more of my favorite quotes just visit my Pinterest Board.
What is the top 3 things on your bucket list?
- Take my kids to New York.
- Learn HTML and web design.
- Go on vacation with my hubby to Europe.
What is your guilty pleasure?
I guess I’m just typical girl. I love a great wine and dark chocolate.
What does paradise look like for you?
This is a hard one… Paradise would be living in a world with no pain, death, or sickness (Revelations 21:4). A world without war (Psalm 46:9). Where my kids could play outside without having any fears (Psalm 37: 9, 10). Being able to enjoy the simple things with loved ones and friends. I could go on with this one forever.
What is one craft you have made or would like to make?
I currently know how to knit, scrapbook, wool rug hooking, a little quilting, and rubber stamping. I would love to learn how to crochet, paint, and calligraphy.
Are you married or in a serious relationship? Any kids (2 or 4 legged)?
I have been married to my wonderful hubby for 14 years. He works so hard so I can work from home with our 3 young kids. We have a beautiful husky that we rescued this spring. I have a blog post talking about her pet adoption that your may want to check out. We also have a cat named Buster. He kinda came with our home and is an outdoor cat (aka wild).
If you had a day to choose whatever you wanted to do, what would it be?
As a work from home mom, I would love a day without the kids (sorry kids), maybe sit in coffee shop and read, meet up with hubby, then have lunch (sushi), go to Nashville to shop and see Grand Ole Opry, and have an amazing dinner. (Hubby there is a lot of hints in here 😉 .)
Who Did I Nominate for Liebster Award?
All these people have great blogs, and deserve support for all their hard work and creative minds. I hope you enjoy reading their blogs as much as I did.
