Thursday Tid Bits

 

First off I would like to thank Lin at Uggabear Cottage for nominating me for this award. These awards are given to new bloggers to increase readership (not that I am really a new blogger, but I guess with only 23 followers I qualify).

Now I will answer the questions she posted.

1.  Why do you blog?  (An oldie but goodie!) I blog more as a way of keeping a journal of what my days are like. I also find it a great way to meet new people from around the world and get to know them just a bit better.
2.   At what age did you discover you loved being creative? I have never really considered myself creative in the true sense of the word, more a putterer trying my best to add a little beauty to my world.
3.   What is your most recent creative endeavor? My most recent creative endeavor is the rug I have been posting about.
4.   Do you like warm weather or cold?  Why? Hmmm, lets just say I like warmish type weather more than cold. If it gets too hot or cold I just want to hibernate and get very sluggish.
5.   What is your cheapest meal? My cheapest meal is probably a German dish that my mother and grandmother made called Glace. All it is, is flour, eggs, potatoes and onions. I think the whole meal only costs about $2.00 and feeds at least 6 people.
6.   Do you like to use brights or pastels in your crafting? I am more an earth tones person with some jewel tones thrown in for contrast.
7.   How did you come up with your blog name? My first blog was named In the Land of the Living skies and when I was locked out of it for some reason I just added the II after the name. The main part of the name comes from what is written on our car plates. As we are so flat (prairie girl here) the sunsets and sunrises are just beautiful. The sky is so big that the white of the clouds and the blue of the sky is constantly changing.
8.   Is anyone else in your family creative?  Who? My Mom was extremely creative. She could take a piece of fabric or a ball of yarn and make something wonderful.
9.   Do you prefer books or ebooks? Can I say that I love both? I read a great deal and enjoy the easy access to hundreds of free books that owning an ebook gives me. However that being said nothing can take the place of actually holding a physical book in my hands. The smell, the texture of the pages, and the weight of a book just can not be replaced.
10. What is your favorite type of vacation...hotel, camping, cruising, etc.?  My favorite type of vacation is one where I can hike, relax with a good book or some handwork and you can do that pretty much on any kind of holiday.

Now on to what needs to be done next. 

  • Inform the person who nominated you whether you "accept" the nomination or choose to "decline".
  • If you choose to accept the nomination:
    • Write a blog post announcing your nomination and include a link back to the blog that nominated you.  
      • Answer the 10 questions the nominating blogger posed to you. 
    • Also within the blog post list 10 blogs (with under 200 followers each) that you nominate and list the questions you would like them to answer.
      • Notify the 10 blogs you nominate of their Liebster nomination. 

Here are the blogs that I am nominating (hope I can find 10)


Oops only found 7. Hope that is okay. Still looking and will be adding as I find them.

The questions I would like you to answer are.....


1.  Why do you blog?  (An oldie but goodie!)
2.   At what age did you discover you loved being creative?
3.   What is your most recent creative endeavor?
4.   What is your favorite type of craft...fiber or something else?
5.   What is your best money saving tip when it comes to crafting?
6.   Do you like to use brights or pastels in your crafting?
7.   How did you come up with your blog name?
8.   Is anyone else in your family creative?  Who?
9.   Do you love to read and what is your favorite reading material? Fiction or Nonfiction?
10. What is your favorite type of vacation...hotel, camping, cruising, etc.?

Now I have to let the blogs I have nominated them know.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.
