2 posts in one day – fantastic! Well, there’s a reason for it. 3, yes 3, of my fellow bloggers have nominated me for a Liebster award. Thank you so very much to Cro29 and Organize & Craft for the nods… crazycrochetmama also nominated me and had the nicest words to say (check out her blog to read them)- thank you so much!! I am so in awe that anyone actually reads my blog, let alone being nominated! Check out their blogs by clicking on the blog name. So, what’s the Liebster award you ask?
“The Liebster Award is an award given to rising bloggers who have less than 200 followers. Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.”
I grabbed that quote from Organize & Craft.
And the rules for the Liebster Award are:
- You thank the person who nominated you!
- You tell us 11 random facts about yourself
- You answer the 11 questions posted by your nominator
- Create 11 random questions for your nominees
- Present/nominate a Liebster Blog Award to more newbie bloggers! (no tag backs)
First Off, 11 random facts:
- I’m an Aquarius.
- I’m a gamer.. and yes, a woman. What rare combo! I love World of Warcraft and Star Wars, etc…
- I’m a newlywed, married last September
- I am Latina, Dominican to be exact
- I am from NYC, born and raised… until I left for college and never moved back (much to the disappointment of my entire family)
- I am a Social Worker by day, crafter by night

Next, I have to answer the 11 question posed to me by my nominator. Well, since I have 2, I decided to grab a few of each.. just to be fair *wink*
- What is your favorite place to be? My favorite place in the whole world is Cape Cod. My wife and I go there every year for our anniversary.. and sometimes in between anniversaries.
- What craft do you love most? My favorite craft, of course is crochet.
- Where do you find inspiration? I find it everywhere. However, my wife usually says ‘you should make this’.. and I do
- Where do you see yourself in 5 years time? In five years, my oldest will be in college, my youngest will be in High School. My wife and I are trying for a baby this year, so hopefully my youngest youngest (haha) will be starting Kindergarten. I see myself as I do now. Happy & fulfilled, having everything I need in life… the love of my family.

- Favorite singer/artist? I love Pink, love her. I’m obsessed.
