Liebster Award Nominee..ME?!?!

So in blogland there is this thing called the Liebster Award, it is in recognition of 
 new bloggers and is German for "Dearest".  The Liebster award goes a little something like this, a
blogger gets nominated by their fellow blogger and has to answer a series of 11 questions that the
 nominator choses.  Once the nominee answers them, he/she then nominates 11 more bloggers and
asks 11 more questions (and of course go to the new nominees page and let them now of their
nomination )! The only requirement is that it is for NEW bloggers only, under 200
subscribed followers and they have to link back to the person who nominated them. Well little ole me,
 just got nominated by this lovely lady, Suzie, who  writes at Dorothy Sue and Millie B's too! Do you
 know what this means?!?! I have at least ONE awesome follower reading this blog! I'm over the
moon ecstatic at the thought that anyone reads, let alone likes my little hobby enough to nominate me
for anything other than a mute button when I'm singing!!! 
Without further ado, my 11 questions brought to you by Suzie.....
   1)What do you constantly think about that makes you happy?
Crafting, decorating, upcycling, reading, shopping, getting a good deal and convincing John to let
me get just one more kitten.
   2)If you could retire tomorrow, what would you do?
First things first, I'd move down south to the beach.  Then I would craft and DIY to my heart's

content. I'd love to have a barn full of furniture to re-do, an amazing craft room and style other

people's homes and events.
  3)What famous person do people tell you that you most   resemble  and why?
I've been told Sarah Chalke from Scrubs a time or two.
  4)What type of music do you listen to? (Genre, artists, songs?)
I love country music and sing it with a little twang, then I switch over to rap and r&b. It's an

interesting car ride with me.
  5)What do you do if you can’t sleep at night?
Browse blogs, read, watch bad reality tv, have a snack, check pinterest, start a craft, the usual.
 6) Are you a creature of habit? Explain
Well, my initial response was no. But then I thought of a recent shopping trip with a friend. I go to

the store quite often and always go to the right to start out, she went to the left. I felt like my entire

shopping trip was discombobulated by this minor detail. So the more that I ponder this question, the

more I realize that I while I have some free spirited tendencies, I actually am very rooted in my

7) Where is the best place you've ever been to?
The beach is my happy place. I search the water for shells and love taking naps on the sand. But I'm

not going to lie, Craft stores are pretty amazing too.  Oh and I'm still talking about my trip to

Alligator Adventure in Myrtle Beach from like 5 years ago coolest place ever.
8) What's inspiring you most these days?
Other bloggers and crafters, their talent inspires me to want to do more and be better.
9) What cheers you up?
Minnie my cat. She's not only a cuddler but a wonderful hide and seek player, you don't often find

that combo in a cat.
 10)If your life was a movie, what would it be called? 
State Zitti

Shutup in Italian. I grew up hearing it in both languages in many ways, but this translations is my

personal favorite. 

11)Why do you blog?
I thoroughly enjoy having a place to call mine. I love sharing  my creative side in whichever way
shape or form I chose and with other people who inspire me. I love this community of people that I
 have met. I enjoy reading about what everyone else is up to and finding new bloggers.
