Liebster Award!!

Hello everyone!!

I am here without a card to show you BUT to share with you a nomination that I recently  received from a special lady Judy Corner!!  Judy is an extremely talented crafter...I call her Fussy and Fancy's "Queen of Shabby Chic"...and yes Judy is a fellow Fussy and Fancy Girl!!  I would like to thank Judy for thinking of me when considering her nominees!!

The Liebster Award is a "chain mail " like format created to bring awareness to blogs that have less than 300 followers.  I, like Judy, don't usually go in for this sort of "chain mail" but I have found that through my blog I have met so many wonderful people and talented crafters... so... if it brings awareness to fellow bloggers...GREAT!! 

So for this award I am to link here to the post that has my nomination from Judy and follow the Liebster Award guidelines.

  Rules for participating in the Liebster Award:

  • Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog and answer the questions they presented;
  • Link back to the blogger who awarded you;
  • Copy & paste the pink Liebster Award logo to your blog;
  • Nominate 5 blogs to receive the award who have less than 300 followers. Create a new list of 11 questions for them; and
  • Inform them of their nomination.
Here are Judy's questions and my answers!!

1. What aspect of your hobby do you enjoy the most?
That is tough...I enjoy it all but I guess creating 3D projects is my most favourite colouring I consider my weakest aspect!!

2. Do you have a favourite colour?
Well yes...I am a PINK girl!!

3. What do you enjoy cooking the most?
I actually like cooking many things but I would have to say creating a pasta would be it.

4. What do you do to relax?
I LOVE a good soak in the tub with a book!!

5. Do you have anything you save or collect?
OH should have a look at my craft room...LOL!!!  Craft supplies aside I would have to say books.

6. Favorite drink?
I can't wait for summer to enjoy a lovely refreshing GIN & TONIC w/LEMON!

7. What do you like to shop for most?

I LOVE shopping period...but I guess my most favourite would be shopping for my Grandkids!!

8. How long have you had your Blog?
I started my blog in July of just short of a year

9. What is your best crafty tip?
Just keep your mind open and don't think "I could never do that!!"  Jump right in and remember the old adage "Practice makes perfect"...well I am STILL practicing and WAITING for the PERFECT!!!

10.Do you have a favourite Craft Shop?
There are so many wonderful shops...Live and Love Crafts, Magnolia-licious, The Ribbon Girl, Wild Orchids...just to name a few!!  I have recently discovered Crafts and Me!

11.  What do you do with the cards you make?
Most of my cards are made for a specific person.  There have been some that I have made just to get an idea out of my head and then I haven't been able to part with...those are displayed in my craft room!  So far I haven't been able to create much of a "stash" of cards as time for me is limited!  I am also in the process of creating my very own "Tilda Town" that I hope my Granddaughters will help me to create!!
