The Creative Blogger Award


The Creative Blogger Award

First off, I want to thank Zezee @ Zezee with Books for nominating me for this award! I really appreciate it and am super honored!

The Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  2. Share 5 facts about yourself.
  3. Nominate some bloggers in return and notify them about their nomination.
  4. Keep the rules in your post to make it easy for everyone to know what to do.

My 5 Facts:

I’m going to put my own spin to this and give you five things that I love because I do in fact love them 🙂 See what I did there? No? *Shoulders slump forward* Yeah, that’s okay. My humor is so strange/dark/nonexistent that I fear sometimes people need a flashlight to know that it’s even there. ^.^ I’m a total nerd,  though, so in reality I’m used to be misunderstood and given space when I talk due to my excessive exuberance for well, everything. That and the fact that I use WILD hand gestures and if you don’t step back there is a chance you’ll get inadvertently smacked.

On to the facts!

1. I Love to Sing

I have like two poorly made videos of my singing on Youtube and I sing on the Sing! app sometimes. But for the most part, I sing at home. My kids love it, especially my little boy. He is 16 months old and thinks he can sing-along. He can’t but that’s okay, it’s cute.

2. I Love to Cook

I haven’t been cooking much lately, but usually when I don’t feel like I’m succumbing to my own brand of torture (i.e. the stress I overload myself with) then I really enjoy cooking. I love to cook Mexican food, Japanese food, and standard issue bad-for-you American food. I also LOVE to bake. Cookies, pecan tarts, cupcakes, those are my jam!

3. I Love to Paint and get Crafty

When I was dating my husband, every year for his birthday I would paint him a picture. I haven’t really kept to that tradition, sadly, and his christmas painting from LAST year is still unfinished, but I did paint some spiderman shoes for my sister-in-law and some mickey mouse shoes for my little girl.

4. I Love to Read Out Loud to my Kids

Story time is one of my favorite things to do with my kids. They even will let me read to them a book of mine while they are playing in their playroom. IDK what it is about it, the sound of my voice? Whatever it is, I love doing it. I love to read in general and I love to read to them, whether it is a book for me or a book for them.

5. I Love to Tinker with Graphic Design

I’ve gotten much better at it over the course of the past year, and I’ve learned a TON. But there is still a lot for me to learn. In any case, I love to play around with graphics. I love to look at vectors and plan what I’ll do with them. I love to look at fonts and think how they’ll look paired with another font. When I don’t want to write anything at all, I design stuff, I love it 🙂

  1. Aw! Graphic design is really cool! I think it’s so awesome when people do that! I’m super jealous. ^.^ I’ve always wanted to be able to, but I don’t have the ability to picture what I should even make. :p What a cool hobby!

    1. Awww!! Thank you! If you’re interested I could teach you or put up a tutorial. I used Adobe Illustrator now but I started out using free programs online to wet my feet and get acclimated to everything. I really started by seeing designs I liked and tried to mimic them. After a while I started to come up with my own. I still struggle though to come up with original but it really is fun!

  2. I LOVE BAKING TOO! It makes me feel so happy and it’s so satisfying – especially when you eat it after it comes out from the oven. n____n I usually bake cookies and baked cheesecakes. 😀 I haven’t given tarts a go before though… are they hard to make?

    1. Tarts are actually SUUUUUPER easy. All you need is the little mini-cupcake pan in terms of odd supplies that most people don’t own. I can search for the recipe and do a post on it if you want? ^.^ My mom’s pecan tarts are sort of the most delicious little beasts on this side of the world, lol!

      1. AH YES PLEASE. I’m really nervous when it comes to baking new things… so I REQUEST IT! ❤ Thanks Nicolette! You're the bessssst!! 😀

  3. Singing, cooking, drawing, painting, writing, and graphic designing. ARE THERE THINGS YOU CAN’T DO, GIRL?! Haha! Oh and I remember those cute awesome Spiderman shoes for your sister! Thanks for tagging me, Nic! 😀

    1. Haha! Well, when you put it that way, it makes me seem like a sort of cool person. But I don’t do nearly enough of any of them sadly, I should, I wish there were more time in a day. 😦

      You’re welcome for the tag! 😀
