Liebster Awards

I was recently nominated for the Liebster Award by Mandy at HongKong Chic.  Very exciting!  But then I was nominated again just a few hours later by Marcy @ Day 2 Day Supermom.  Also exciting.  So I thought I probably should accept.
The Rules:
1)  Say "Thanks!" to the Liebster Award nominator on your blog and give them a gracious link back.
2)  Answer 11 questions from the nominator.
3)  List 11 random facts about yourself.
4)  Present the Liebster Blog Award to 11 other blogs who have less then 200 followers, or who you think deserves to be noticed.  Don't forget to leave a comment on their blog so they know about it!
5)  Copy and paste the blog award onto your blog ~ show it off!!

Questions for me:
  1. What made you start blogging?  I wanted to get my life in order and I figured I'd do it if I was accountable to others.
  2. What do you enjoy most about blogging?  Meeting new people and seeing others enjoy my work.
  3. What inspires you?  My family!!  They are the best inspiration in the world.  Whether I'm trying to help organize us or make a cute outfit for a child.  They keep me getting up in the morning.
  4. Can you give one advice to fellow bloggers?  Stay true to yourself!  Others will like you for who you are.
  5. Who is the most important person in your life?  My husband.  He keeps me grounded and makes me life even when there isn't anything to laugh about.
  6. If you could live anywhere in the world under the best circumstances, where would it be and why?  Some place warm.  No where in particular.  
  7. Are you a cat person or a dog person?   DOG!  Cat are not my friends.
  8. Do you have a role model? who? sisters, my mother, any strong women who love their families.  That is really what life is all about.
  9. What is the one thing you cannot live without? (excludes humans)  My sewing machine!  It doesn't talk back, keeps me relaxed (usually) and gives me a break from the "really world".
  10. What is your favorite comfort food?  Doritos.  I love them.  I don't buy them, because I love them too much!
  11. Ok, this question is purely for me.  What do you think about my blog? (honest answers please, and if there is something I should improve on, do tell)   It is very fun!  What I have found attracts me the most are PICTURES!  The better the pictures the more likely people will pin, visit or leave a comment.  
11 Facts About Me:
1.  I hate cake.  True, don't like it.
2.  I just opened my Etsy store and got my very first SALE!  That was very exciting!
3.  I hate snow, but I live where it snows.  Go figure.
4.  My favorite color is green.  If you can't tell by like everything I sew.  No really.  Check it out.  Most of the fabric I buy has green in it.  It is a real addiction.
5.  I have a dog.  I don't talk about my dog because she drives me crazy.  But she is cute.
6.  Our fish is name "Chicken Joe".  And every night our son has to "kiss" him goodnight.
7.  I watch Disney Junior...a lot....too much.....I really do love Henry Hugglemonster.  In fact, I loved him even before the show was on because they had the commercial for like A MONTH before he even came on.
8.  I learned to sew in High School from a church leader.  Then in college decided it was what I loved.  So I have been sewing ever since.  It is one of the few things that really makes me happy just thinking about.
9.  I drive an SUV.  My husband says I will need a mini van if we ever have more kids.  I said "NO".  I refuse!!  I won't do it.  I told him I'll just have to drive his truck then.
10.  I have blonde hair.  It has always been blonde.  As far as I'm concerned it will always be blonde.  I dyed it once (about 1 shade darker).  But I will say I am happy with my hair.
11.  I love to blog!  It is so fun and I love to see what others are share!!!
