About the Liebster Award

liebsteraward1
Last week I have the great surprise that a reader nominate me for The Liebster Awards. I never ever in my life have listen to that name, so obviously my first reaction was google it. As I start reading about it, I realize that is a recognition giving to new blogs or blogs that are lovely for the reader, that have less than 200 followers and is a way to spread the word, like a mouth to mouth. I think is a kind of a game because:
*The nominee blogger have to answer 11 questions.
*Share 11 facts about himself.
*Have to nominate 11 new blogs that he/she loved.
*And finally have to make 11 new questions for them to answer.
I want to say thank you to the lovely blogger, who nominated me. Her name is ShonteMarie and here is her blog: http://theblogthatneverends.wordpress.com/. Even though I think I don´t deserve it, I want to share it here in my blog, because I think it is a good way of saying thank you and spreading the word of this.
Here are my response to the 11 questions she made me: 
liebsteraward3
1. Where do you find inspiration or ideas for your blog?
I been thinking about writing a blog time ago, so I have lots of journals full of ideas. But I think the main source of inspiration I found it in my daily life, sometimes I am in my work and an idea pop up (I write everything in journals), or sometimes I found old ideas in the journals. Traveling helps me a lot and of course inspiration I find in others blogs.
2. How often do you sit down and blog, uninterrupted? Do you schedule time for it, or do it on the fly?
Yes I dedicate at least two hours daily to write in the blog and I schedule it. I started the blog last November, so I decided for January to have at least one post by day. It´s a kind of goal for this month and I hope to keep doing it the whole year, but let´s just think of January. For writing one post each day I have to organize me a little bit, for example the big projects like (DIY vs. BIY) I try to do them in the weekends (buy the materials and do as much as I can) so in the week the only thing left is to take the pictures and put the post together.
3. What is your favorite way to spend a Sunday afternoon?
I love movies (is something I hope I start blogging soon), so my perfect Sunday will be in my house with by lovely husband watching a movie while I am painting or drawing something.
4. Favorite item in the room you’re in right now:
My actual journal, it contain beautiful ideas for future posts and projects 😉

5. What’s a goal you have for 2013?
The main goal of the year is to keep moving in the path of what I really enjoy to do. I think that a word that can summarize my goals for 2013 is EVOLVE (I will be sharing this too soon), but I think EVOLVE is a concept that applies in different areas of my life. And obviously to maintain and grow this little place in the internet.
6. What’s the best present you’ve ever received?
Difficult one… I think my camera Nikon D40
7. You have to play one song on constant repeat for an entire day. Which song do you choose?
Deep Blue Sea – Snatam Kaur
8. Last film you saw in theaters and loved?
Life of Pi, I love the message of the movie.

11. What’s your ultimate dream for your blog? How will you measure its “success?”
