5 Things About Me & My Blog

5 Things You May Not Know About Me & My Blog

I was blog surfing visiting my favorite blogs today as I do everyone morning with my coffee.  I am always amazed when reading through the blogs that I follow each day how fabulously talented, funny and sweet all of you ladies are that I travel along with in blog-land.

I was thinking that it would be so awesome to learn more about each of you bloggers.  So I thought I’d go ahead and share with you 5 thing you may not know about me & my blog.  Which I decide to post it in an interview style.  Now for the FUN part; yippee!  You can participate to; simply play along then read the bottom of this post.

1. What lead you to start your blog?

The date was March of 2008 and I just could not get enough of scrapbooking {I still love it}.  I worked back then part time at the local scrapbook store here in Florida.  I started following local crafty scrapbooker’s blogs {my amazing friends} and I was instantly inspired to create my own blog.

2. When do you find time to blog?

When I first wake up in the morning I head out to our outside lania {Florida’s crazy word for a screened room} poolside with my laptop in hand and begin reading plus commenting on the blogs that I enjoy following each day.  I find all of your blogs to be much more interesting and fun then the morning news.  Yes, you heard it right.  Oh, dear!  I don’t watch the news, crazy right?

3. Do consider yourself to be crafty, creative or talented person?

Crafty? Yes. Creative? Yes. Talented? Yes.  Oh, no I believe that I am sounding a little conceded but I know that all of the talents that I have are God given.  I am thankful.  Just don’t ask me to give you directions or solve a math problem because those are a few things that I am not good at.

This a photo of some new flowers that I created from some pretty vintage fabric scraps. I am going to be using them to embellish your new line of hand towels. I will be revealing the hand towels on an up coming blog post; so check back often so you don't miss them.

4. What do I enjoy most about blogging?

I love giveaways!  I love winning new things and enjoy posting on my blog “you have WON”!  But most of all, I love mingling with all of you fabulously talented ladies.  You girls all rock!  You make me laugh, smile and give me daily inspiration.

5. What’s the best thing a blogger can give to readers?

I believe the best things that one can give a follow blogger is friendship, kind words, share creative flow, advise, unique personality and fun real life stories.
Okay, now it’s your turn. Go ahead and answer all of the above questions. Then leave me a comment and include a link your post on your blog with the five question answered by you.
