I was nominated for The Liebster Award by Amy from Pictures and Pillows! The award is intended to allow small time bloggers to get to know each other better as well as expose their readers to new blogs they love as well.
If you're tagged you have to write 11 things about yourself, and then answer the 11 questions from the blogger who tagged you. You then choose other bloggers with less than 200 followers that you want to get to know, and choose your own 11 questions you'd like to ask them.
11 things About Me:
1: I love avocados. I add it to meals the way most people add salt and pepper.
2: I could get 12 hours of sleep a night and still always feel sleepy.
3: My favorite color is purple.
4: I feel ashamed admitting I really just want to be a stay at home wife. It makes me feel anti-feminist...or something.
5: I don't like being asked about my tattoos.
6: I want to go on a road trip so bad! I've felt so restless lately.
7: I am awful at math.
8: I am a cheap drunk.
9: I like to fantasize about being a minimalist, but I like "things" too much
10: I like dark beverages. Red wine, coffee, spiced rum, Coca-Cola.
11: Reese's peanut butter cups are my vegan kryptonite
Answers to Pictures and Pillows Questions:
1: What drove you to start your blog?
When I started my Etsy shop, it seemed like a good idea to be able to share my creative process.
2: What is your favourite TV show?
For a long time it was Freaks & Geeks, but now I have to say my new favorite is definitely Girls.
3: Who is your favourite actor/actress?
Hmmm.... probably Jason Segel. That could also be just because I want to be his best friend.
4: Mornings or evenings?
It always feels good to start the day with a productive morning, but I'm the worst at getting out of bed!
5: What is your favourite type/style of jewelry
I love big loud jewelry! Surprised?
6: What is your favourite craft?
My favorite medium is probably watercolors mainly because it's something I hardly ever get to do.
7: If you could only eat the food from one country for the rest of your life, what would it be?
That depends. I love Americana diner style food when its made vegan, but the problem is it usually isn't. Can I have an exception to the rule? Haha.
8: What is your fondest memory from when you were a child?
When my dad would let me put makeup on him when I was a toddler. I always thought it was hilarious!
9: Cats or dogs?
DOGS, but I would settle for a kitty as well.
10: Do you have any pets?
Yup! A lovely hedgehog named Denny Crane.
11: What would your dream job be?
Haha. I think I answered this above already...
For the blogs I'm tagging, I'm choosing some of my favorite art teacher blogs! It's always fun to see the great kid art posted by teachers, but sometimes its nice to learn a little more about the person behind it all!
My questions are:
1. What is your least favorite art medium or craft project?
2. What is your favorite piece of art created by one of your students?
3. What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
4. Summer heat or winter blizzards?
5. What is your ideal vacation?
6. Any long gone alternate career dreams?
7. What is your most prized possession?
8. If there were 25 hours in a day, I would use that extra time too...?
9. If your art budget was limitless, what new materials would you invest in either for yourself or your students?
10. What is your favorite color?
11. And just for kicks, Ninjas or Pirates?
I look forward to seeing everyone's answers and thanks again to Amy for nominating me!
