Nominated for a Liebster Award

Gratitude is the music of the heart,
when its chords are swept by the breeze of kindness.

Author Unknown

WOW! Talk about an unexpected honor!
I just received an email from Sandi Huggett that she nominated me and my blog for a Liebster Award.
For those of you who do not know what this award is, it is for blogs that have less that 300 followers and is a fun way to introduce your blog and artwork to others and, hopefully increase your following.
Sandi, Thank you so much. I am so honored that you thought enough of my work to put my name in the hat for this award!

Please stop by her blog Sandi Samples as she is a fantastic digi artist.

She has a few questions for me to answer

What or who was your inspiration to start crafting?
My Mom - when I was growing up she was always doing something creative. Sewing, ceramics, lost wax, crochet... the list goes on.

What is your favorite crafting item?
Wow - what a tough question but if I have to pick something it would be my Big Shot and embossing folders. Yes - technically that's two, but they kinda go hand in hand!

What is your favorite time of the day to craft?
I'm kinda of a night owl, so after everything calms down, it's my way of relaxing.

What is your favorite style of crafting?
As much as I love other styles mine tends to be Clean and Simple.

How much time do you spend crafting each day?
Not as much as I would like!

Do you have a favorite craft store?
Hobby Lobby

What is your favorite food?
Toss up between Mexican and Sushi

What do you do to relieve stress?
Depends really on what has me stressed, but a nice cold beer or class of wine is a good start!

If you could only choose three craft items to make a card what would they
My Big Shot, an embossing folder and an ink pad

What other hobbies do you have?
I have many hobbies, but next in line after paper crafts in crochet. But I also like to hike, read, shoot and just be lazy (does that count as a hobby?)

What do you do when you are not in the craft room?
I work full time in Aerospace. I am a wife, mother, daughter - so I tend to keep busy doing something!

I would like to nominate

4. provide 11 random facts about yourself.
