I am excited beyond words that I have been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Huge thanks to Katie at homespunhabits.com for the nomination who happens to have a really cool website with great content! Show her some love.
Sunshine Blogger Award
This award is given to bloggers by other bloggers who help to spread the sunshine through their creative, entertaining and thoughtful content. It’s a great way to discover and connect with others in the blogging community. I am to answer a few questions that will tell a little about myself and hopefully it will help you get to know me a little bit better.
How Long Have You Been Blogging?
I just started blogging in January of this year. I really enjoy writing and home decorating so I figured this was a good way to explore the topic further and do something I really love at the same time.
What Is Your Favorite Thing To Do After A Long Day?
I love spending time with my family. If it’s been a tough day, nothing brings me more comfort than reading God’ word and finding peace in this sometimes tough world.
How Did You Come Up With Your Blog Name?
I was using this name already for a home decorator game I was playing. So It seemed natural to use it for my blog.
What Do You Wish People Knew About Blogging?
That it takes a lot of work to put together an article. There is a lot of behind the scene technical issues that you have to work out with your website. You have to know analytics and how to get your hard work to even show up in google searches. There’s A LOT that goes into just one post, this is not for the faint of heart.
Do You Have Special Talent?
I am an extreme couponer! I love all things coupons. I am good at finding a deal and negotiating like nobody’s business. My closest family and friends know that I coupon but that’s it. I seldom pay for things like, toothpaste, body wash, toothbrushes or salad dressing. I once got 24 rolls of Scott tissue for .74!
What Is Something Most People Don’t Know About You?
I am not sure there is anything that I can think of. I am a pretty open book.
Are You A Type A Personality?
No way! I am pretty laid back and even though I can be a bit fussy over details, I am not a perfectionist.
What Is One Of Your Biggest Goals For Your Blog?
One of my biggest goals for this blog is to be able to do it full time.
Do You Enjoy DIY Projects? If So, Tell Us About Your Favorite One.
Yes, I do enjoy DIY. It can be tough and most times it has more steps to it than you expect but it is so rewarding when you’ve created something pretty with your own hands. I have a couple of things that I like and one is creating pretty wreaths and the other is re purposing or upcycling.
What Is The Best Piece Of Advice You Have Ever Been Given?
“If you are the smartest person in the room, then you are in the wrong room.” I love learning and think its important to always keep growing and learning.
What Is Your Dream Vacation?
Disney World! I have been wanting to go to Disney forever. I plan to get there with my family soon.
