liebster award

Shout out to RaChil over at The Cwafty Blog for nominating me for a Liebster Award! If there's one thing I love about blogging, it's the community. The internet is a savage place, but within this community I feel such friendliness & sharing. 

The deal with the Liebster Award is that whomever is nominated poses 11 facts about themselves, answers a series of questions from the nominator, nominates 11 other blogs, & then creates a series of questions for the new nominees to answer. So here we go!

// Facts // 
  1. Cereal is my favorite food, hands down.
  2. I spent a portion of my childhood homesteading.
  3. It's really difficult for me to sit through an entire movie.
  4. I spent half a year living in Slovenia (related note, here's an awesome Slovenian cooking blog)
  5. My cat's name is Donut, but she was almost named Moist Towelette.
  6. I have been a vegetarian for almost a decade.
  7. I like to craft (duh).
  8. If I had to listen to one artist for the rest of my life, I would pick Antony and the Johnsons.
  9. When I grow up I want to be a stop-motion animation artist.
  10. I can fold my tongue in half.
  11. I have never broken a bone in my body. 

// Questions Answered //
  1. Whats your favorite color combination? // Mint & white.
  2. If you could have any animal in the world for a pet what would it be? // Maybe this makes me a boring person, but I'm sticking with cats.
  3. Coffee or Tea? How do you take it? // I have tried to be a tea-drinker - sitting in my oversized knit sweater relaxing after a deep shavasana right before I go out to tend to my vegetable garden - but I'm a tried & true coffee drinker. With cream.
  4. Can you do a really good fake accent? // My southern accent is slowly becoming second nature the longer I live in Florida.
  5. What's the first thing you ever remember making? // I remember making a fish tank for my very first dollhouse. It involved a baby food jar, little fish cut out of foam, & some water with blue food dye in it. 
  6. What made you want to start blogging? // I love to write, I love to craft. Why not both (cue the El Paso commercial)?
  7. Favorite artistic/crafty medium to work with? // I love sewing projects, because of the transformation & usage. But I also love it when I can use what I have on hand & turn it into something new.
  8. A movie you know word for word? // Wet Hot American Summer (Henry! HENRY! Library!).
  9. What do you like to do when you're not dazzling the internet with your creative genius? // Well, I guess I got some laundry done today, so there's that.
  10. What's the last show you marathoned? // This is a serious confession, so don't tell anyone, but it was Animal Hoarders. Which is a terrible show, by the way.

// Questions Posed // 
  1. What blog do you visit every day?
  2. Do you have a favorite pattern (i.e. Chevron, Herringbone, etc.)?
  3. What TV show can you watch time & again without tiring of it?
  4. When is the best time of day to blog?
  5. Where is your dream vacation location?
  6. What are your top three favorite novels?
  7. Which is better, yard work or house work?
  8. Do you keep a journal?
  9. What is your favorite season, & why?
  10. Pencils or pens?
  11. If you could build anything, what would it be?

  1. Yay for not breaking anything so far in our lives! Also coffee is totally the way to go, although I like some tea (like earl grey, thanks Cap'n Picard)! I do a great southern accent because I grew up in Texas, but its luckily something I have most control over, it does slip out if I get really angry though.

    1. Ah yes, the angry-turned-southern effect. I am familiar with this one. =)
