Liebster Blog Award!

The Liebster Award
If you don't know what is the Liebster Award, here's the description of it.

The Liebster Blog Award is given to upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. The Meaning; Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome.
My understanding of this award is that it is a way of saying thank you, and at the same time giving back to the blogger community, with no more details I would say let's get right to it.

Thanks to Crafty Spices I have now received the Liebster Blog Award!

Here are the rules for receiving the award:
  1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
  2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, & create 11 new questions for the people you've tagged.
  3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
  4. Go to there page and tell them (social networks accepted).
  5. If you have not done so yet follow your tagger and visit at least 3 Nominees (my addition)
  6. Remember, no tag backs!
Below are 11 things about me:
  1. I'm marrying the greatest guy ever this fall. Even better, he's my best friend.
  2. I hate pickles... with a passion.
  3. I didn't take a single Art class through High School
  4. My day job gets in the way of my art. ;)
  5. I have two fur-babies, my black lab, Nate and my chocolate lab, Nadia (aka The Beast)
  6. I've lived in St. Louis for the past 12 years. Where did the time go?
  7. And while thinking about that fact I realized I've lived in 10 different places within STL... guess that's where my time went, moving!
  8. I have a fear of heights but I'm to stubborn to usually admit it. So I'll stand there with clammy hands, in a cold sweat with my heart racing before I'll back away from an edge.
  9. I love playing volleyball (even though every year my body protest more and more). I play on a coed sand league in the summer and a competitive women's league during the winter.
  10. Every time I eat a piece of chocolate I think about my Grandma D. I miss her. :'(
  11. Sometimes my Dream Job is to work on art all day long... And then I start to worry that the passion and excitement would fade away because it's actually my 'Job'.
My must-answer questions from Crafty Spices:
  1. What are you picky about? How dishes get loaded into the dish washer
  2. Have you ever been to the Caribbean, if so what was or is your favorite part or place? Never been but plan on it!
  3. If you had the power to change something in the world what would it be? I don't want to say World Peace because that sounds corny, but can't we all just get along? I don't understand why you have to HATE someone (or worse, kill) because they have a different opinion from you.
  4. If you were an animal, what would you be and why? A monkey because they always look like they're having fun. I don't want to be something that flies (fear of heights here) but I think swing from tree to tree sounds like a good time.
  5. Imagine you just won 365 Million dollars, what would you do with it? Hand half of it over to my Dad and ask him what to do with it; investments, stocks, etc. Donate 1/4 of it to various groups. The rest... just have fun. THINK OF ALL THE ART PROJECTS I COULD MAKE!
  6. Why do you blog? I always have friends and/or families ask how I did this or that project. Or they come to me with an idea of what they want to create and ask how it's possible. So I figured a lot of people out there might need some creative help.
  7. Apple computer or PC? Hmmmm... I like both.... :/ Undecided
  8. Location of your best vacation, and why was it the best? Crazy as it sounds, Bilouxi, Mississippi. My honey and I barely spent 24 hours there but it's when I started to think he might just be The One. It was our first vacation together.
  9. Favorite sport? To play; volleyball. To watch; baseball... more specifically, The Cards!
  10. Number of siblings? 2, one of each
  11. What is your favorite type of music? I shake my head as I write this because I never thought it would happen but Country.
Here are 11 questions for you:
  1. If you could move anywhere where would you go?
  2. Why do you blog?
  3. If you had a super power what would it be?
  4. If you were an animal, what would it be and why?
  5. What's your dream vacation?
  6. What's your biggest pet peeve?
  7. Toilet paper roll - over or under?
  8. Is a thunderstorm scary or fascinating?
  9. Favorite sport?
  10. Number of siblings?
  11. What is your favorite movie?
Hope you enjoy this award as much as I am enjoying it.
