Sunshine Blogger Award

Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying the transition into 2019. I’m so happy to announce that I have been nominated for a Sunshine Blogger Award by my fellow blogger, mel. I was very excited to hear that I had been nominated, as I have never been nominated for a blogging award before! Thank you so much mel for nominating me for this award. If you have a chance, please check out her blog for some amazing craft and DIY ideas!

The rules for this award are:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you, and include a link back to their blog.
  2. Answer the questions given by the person who nominated you.
  3. Nominate other blogs and give questions for them to answer.
  4. Notify your nominees through social media or by commenting on their blog.
  5. List the rules and display a Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post.

The questions I must answer are, for the coming 2019, what is your:

  1. Goal for your life?
  2. Goal for your blog?
  3. Three things must do?
  4. Desired destination you have to go?
  5. Precious memory to keep from 2018?
  6. Biggest calendar event?
  7. Favorite movie that you have waited to watch?
  8. Wished skill you wanted to learn?
  9. Gift you wanting to share to others?
  10. Curious food that you’re going to try?
  11. Resolution?

Here are my answers:

1: The goal for my life is to be happy, healthy, and close to family.

2: I don’t really have a set goal for my blog. I guess my first goal is to grow my blog and the community surrounding it. Aside from that, I mainly want to share my ideas and hobbies with all of you!

3: Three things I must do.. hmm.. I guess the first thing I must do is graduate with my bachelor’s. I’m already really close to graduating, so that’s definitely something I need to get done. The second thing I must do is take down my Christmas decorations. Last year, we went one day over our HOA’s date for leaving Christmas lights up, and the HOA was very quick to inform us about it. Lastly, I must visit with family while they are here after the holidays!

4: The desired destination I have to visit is Hawaii. My sister just moved there and I need to go and visit her!

5. The most precious memory I have of 2018 is seeing my baby niece for the first time on Christmas Eve. Babies are always such precious memories!

6. The biggest calendar event in 2019 would have to be the day I graduate. I am hoping to graduate in August!

7. My favorite movie that I have been waiting to watch is the new Mary Poppins movie. I can’t wait to see it!

8. The skill I’ve always wanted to learn would honestly and sadly have to be cooking. For some reason, I am great at baking, but horrible when it comes to cooking. Hopefully practice will make perfect in my case!

9. The gift I want to share with others is kindness! Kindness to others is very important.

10. A very curious food that I have been meaning to try comes from a local restaurant where I live. They serve a calamari waffle that I have been so curious about, but I am never brave enough to try it on my own!

11. My resolution for 2019 is to live a healthier lifestyle. I would really like to start eating healthier and exercising more. Being a college student, it’s easy to get into the habit of eating junk food and sitting around doing homework all the time. I just need to make sure I continue healthier habits into the spring semester after winter break is over!

Now, my Sunshine Blogger Award nominees are:

  1. Starrcreative
  2. Kellysdiy
  3. Malassi Crafts
  4. The Odd Bee
  5. Kathy’s Crafts and Things

Congratulations to the nominees. You all have very creative blogs and spread lots of inspiration to others!

I’m going to try to keep my questions pretty simple for this. My questions for the nominees are:

  1. What is your favorite topic to blog about?
  2. How did you come up with the title of your blog?
  3. What is the main reason you start blogging?
  4. Is there a destination you’ve dreamt of visiting?
  5. What is your favorite movie?
  6. Do you have a favorite book genre?

  1. Congratulations on your nomination! And thank you for nominating me! I’ve got the whole shebang on paper now and am still working on my answers. I have to go to Wilmington tomorrow, so I’ll try to do the actual post tomorrow night when I’ll have a large block of time to work on it without interruptions.. Hopefully having it written down will help get the post done quicker. I saved the award logo to my pictures so I just have to polish my answers and I can get the post formed up. I hope this coming day is SUPER GREAT for you!

  2. I am so grateful Kathy’s Crafts and Things ( has also nominated me for a Sunshine Blogger award! To make things easier, I will answer her questions here in the comments instead of making another post. Happy New Year everyone, and I hope you like my answers!

    Kathy’s questions for me:

    1. What motivated you to start a blog?
    2. What new skill would you like to learn?
    3. What is your all time favorite movie?
    4. What is your favorite hot beverage?
    5. What is your favorite go-to comfort food?
    6. What is your number one bucket list destination you would like to go to?
    7. What would you like people to learn from your blog?
    8. What are your seven most favorite books, ones that you read over and over?
    9. What is your favorite holiday / season?
    10. What is your all time favorite cookie variety?
    11. Do you have a New Year’s resolution?

    My answers:

    1. I have always loved writing and had the idea of making my own blog. My boyfriend was very supportive and motivated me to try it out and make one. At first I thought I wanted to focus on writing, but realized crafting and DIY are also some of my favorite things to do. I was making a sugar scrub for myself and realized that would be a great starting point, and thats how I started blogging!

    2. This question is similar to the one mel asked me, and I would have to say cooking again. I don’t know why I’m great at baking but awful at cooking. Definitely something I want to get better at!

    3. For some reason I am completely stumped on my all time favorite movie. I would have to say The Professional with Jean Reno and Natalie Portman is one of my top favorites though.

    4. My favorite hot beverage is coffee. I can’t go most days without it!

    5. My go-to comfort food is macaroni and cheese. (One of the only things I’m ‘okay’ at making 😉.)

    6. I have so many bucket list destinations it’s hard to pick a top one! I would have to say Egypt is my top bucket list destination.

    7. What I want people to learn from my blog is how easy they can make or do things themselves! I hope all of my ideas provide inspiration for that.

    8. Sadly, because I’m always reading books for school, I can never get around to reading the books that I personally want to read, so I never have time to read books over and over, but I wish I could! There is one book that I read over and over called Buddha’s Brain. It has lots of tips for reducing stress and anxiety, which helps me out a lot.

    9. My favorite holiday would have to be Christmas, because I love to get together with family and share gifts with my loved ones. My favorite season is a tie between spring and fall.

    10. My all time favorite cookie is a chocolate chunk cookie!

    11. My New Year’s resolution is pretty typical. I want to live a healthier lifestyle, mainly in terms of eating better and exercising more often.

    Thank you everyone for reading my answers, and thanks again Kathy for nominating me! Hope you all have a wonderful 2019.
