The Liebster Award! A way to discover new blogs!

Hi everyone!  I was so very happy and excited when Dani Cristina told me that she picked my blog for the Liebster Award!  I am so honored to accept her offer.

I will begin by sharing the rules:

1.Thank the blogger who nominates you.

2.Answer the 10 questions she/he asks of you.

3.Nominate 10 bloggers.

4.Ask these 10 bloggers 10 questions of your own.

5.Let them know you have nominated them.

Thank you SO MUCH, Dani!  Please check out Dani's blog with her creative works of art here:

These are the answers to my questions from Dani:

1 - What do you  like to create that is handmade and art related(scrapbooking, sewing, needlepoint, knitting, crochetetc ...)
I love scrapbooking!  I have literally hundreds of pages and albums!!

2 - At the moment of creation, do you prefer a quiet environment or musicIf you prefer a musical environment, which style you prefer?
I mostly like quiet.  There are times when I listen to music.  I love all styles and types of music, especially show tunes!

3 - Share a photo of your creative moment.
I dug deep into my stash (from 2009!) for this one that I love of Katie:

4 - With what artist medium would you feel honored to create(I mean the artists craft medium; like scrapperspainterscraftsmen ...)
I love using the new mixed media products, but I think I especially like the old tried and true scrapbook papers like Basic Grey or Echo Park!

5 - Who in the world would like to know?
I would have loved to have met Paul Newman when he was still alive.

6 - What is your favorite TV program?
My favorite TV program that is on right now is The Middle.  I laugh each and every time I watch it!  

7 - A movie that has left ​​you emotional?
A movie that always makes me cry when I watch it is "To Kill A Mockingbird."  Especially the scene when Atticus walks through the courtroom and everyone in gallery section stands!!

8 - A dream to accomplish ...
I have always wanted to better my photography skills.

9 - A quotea phrasea thought?
A favorite quote of mine:  "Courage doesn't always roar.  Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying "I will try again tomorrow."  by Mary Anne Radmacher

10 - A color you do not like?
I can honestly say that there is really no color that I don't like!

Next,  I picked 10 blogs that I love.  It is so hard to pick just 10, so I narrowed it down to those blogs that have fewer than 100 followers:

Maryanne's Zingala's Workshop

Trish's My Daily Dose

And finally, here are my questions for those participants who chose to accept:

1.   Tell us something that hardly anyone knows about you.

2.   What is your favorite children's book?

3.   Share a photo of where you live.

4.   Why do you like scrapbooking so much?

5.   What is your favorite time of the day?

6.   What movie makes you laugh out loud?

7.   Describe yourself in 3 words.

8.   What place would you like to visit most?

9.   Do you remember the very first blog you ever read?

10.  Share a photo of your favorite project!

Once again, thank you, Dani.  This has been so much fun!!!
