Okay, so I’m new to this blogging thing. I mean, I know my blog is over a year old, but the idea that there are people out there that I’ve never met listening is extraordinary, I think.
This wonderful blogger, Connie has just nominated me for a “Creative Blogger Award” and I’m beyond honored! My little ol’ baby blog has been recognized— it’s so cool. Thank you Connie!! She has a fantastic blog, as well. Check it out at BohemienArt.
As far as I can tell, the way this works is I’m supposed to list five facts about myself, and then nominate 15-20 bloggers I find inspiringly creative.
Let’s jump on it!
- Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
- Share five facts about yourself.
- Nominate 15 – 20 bloggers and add their links.
- Notify the bloggers you included.
- Keep the rules in your post.
Fact 1. I am a clean freak. Like, completely nuts concerning the state of my house. During my recovery after Aria Belle was born, I had quite a few melt downs because I wasn’t able to vacuum or wash dishes— I realized then, I have a problem. That’s the first step to recovery, right?!
Fact 2. I completely fear time passing. I love making list and planning out the day, but when I really consider how quickly life spins out of our grasp, I get really sad. Curly reminds me of the bigger picture quite often. That helps. 🙂
Fact 3. I have a ridiculous amount of interests— I want to grow in so many areas intellectually, be a master baker, know the ins and outs of art, while being able to build furniture, sew dresses, train horses, garden flawlessly, be a great friend, an uplifting wife, inspiring mama, and perfect working with leather.. Heh.
Fact 4. My biggest goal at the moment, aside from my household duties and being a good wife/mama, is to open an etsy shop and become diligent in an online business. (I think I can, I think I can.)
Fact 5. This is a fact/confession. I’m really bad at reading other blogs or finding new people to follow. Once I’m on a blog or follow the link, I’ll read it and enjoy it, but I never think to check for new posts. This nomination has really helped me out in that area! I’ve been searching for inspiring blogs for the past few days and have stumbled up some really interesting people! I’m determined to become more active in other bloggers lives.
Now for the nominees— I’m going to nominate blogs that inspire me in various ways. Not simply craft-like, but also by words or lifestyle or recipes. There are so many ways to express one’s creativity, who am I to limit it to tutorials or diys?

Until next time.
