The Liebster Award...Whoot!

I woke up to a wonderful surprise in my inbox this morning.  Ali from the Dream Crafter blog nominated She Runs for The Liebster Award.  Thank you Ali!  That totally made my day.  And I was thrilled to be introduced to your blog.  The design is awesome!  You have also inspired me to do a bit more posting and sharing.  :)

What is the Liebster Award?

In the blogging world it is an award for new bloggers who are just starting out. This award gets passed around by other bloggers who were nominated and they nominate other new bloggers. This helps getting the new blogs noticed. Pretty cool, huh? Basically, the purpose of the Liebster Award is to get blogs with less than 200 followers noticed.

What are the Rules?

1. Thank your Liebster Award presenter on your blog and link back to their blog.

2. Answer the 11 questions from the nominator, list 11 random facts about yourself and create 11 questions for your nominees.

3. Present the Liebster Blog Award to 11 blogs that has 200 followers or less whom you feel deserve to be noticed. Be sure to leave them a comment on their blog to let them know they have been chosen.

4. Copy and paste the blog award on to your blog. It is an award so show it off! Wink...Wink.
Again, I want to thank Ali from Dream Crafter.  Go check her out.  You won't be disappointed.

11 Questions from Dream Crafter who nominated me:

1. If you could marry any Disney Character, who would it be?
Peter Pan for sure!  He knows fairies, plays A LOT, and can fly.

2. In a street fight, who do you think would win? A honey badger or a bengal tiger? Why?
The Honey Badger.  Those suckers are MEAN and TRICKY!

3. What is your biggest guilty pleasure?
80's music for sure.

4. If you had 100 dollars to spend at a thrift store, what is the first section you would run to and why?
Either the books for art journals and mixed media projects, or the furniture.  I've been totally inspired to restore and repurpose old stuff lately.

5. If you could have the mind of someone famous, who would it be? 
This is a tough one.  I can't even begin to imagine having anyone else's mind but my own.  It would be terribly uncomfortable for me.  However, if I could hang out and chat with someone famous it would be Nikki Sixx for sure.  I would love to hear about his creative process and what inspires him.

6. What is your favorite quote from the Toy Story series?
"To Infinity And Beyond" of course!

7. What is your favorite crayon color (that has a weird name)?
I honestly cannot pick just one.  I love them all.

Antiques!  Antiques!  and more Antiques!

9. What is the last book you read?
The Gifts of Imperfection.  Amazing book!

10. What is one of your biggest fears?
I absolute biggest fear is never fully living my dreams.  That terrifies me more than anything.  Which provides good motivation to keep moving forward.

Unfinished - It will always be a work in progress, just like me.
Glimpse - It is a small glimpse in to who I am and what I do.
