Liebster Nomination!

I am excited to share I have been nominated for a Liebster Award by the lovely Lizzie from Teacup Tweed. The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers! I love how it takes the form of a Blog hop, it is great to learn about others and meet new bloggers too. 

The idea is to answer 10 questions by your nominator and then nominate some of your favourite bloggers and create 10 questions for them. So here we go! I shall answer Lizzie's questions :)

1. Tea or coffee first thing in the morning?

Definitely a nice cup of tea! I don't drink coffee but I am partial to a hot chocolate and cream. (With Marshmallows) 

2. What inspires you to blog?

I love to blog about most things but what inspires me to blog is having news. Whether its news about whats going on in my life to whether its something happening in the world. I also love to blog about art and design. 

3. Town or country?

I live in a small town but my road is right next door to the countryside so I am a bit cheeky and get the best of both but I do love the countryside. 

4. What is your dream job?

My dream job is what I am doing now: my own design business. My dream though is for it to be a success. 

5. What is your favourite animal?

My favourite animal has to be my French Bulldog, Dylan. If you follow me on my social media sites you will have seen me post pictures of him quite frequently :) 

6. Is your blog about your job or a hobby/ interest?

I'd say both. My job as a surface designer is my main interest. I do also blog about other art and craft aspects such as knitting and other topics such as travel. 

7. Hot or cold weather?

Hot, I love summer floral prints! 

8. What is your favourite sport?

My favourite sport is Tennis. 

9. Are you a leader or a follower?

This is such an interesting but hard question. I definitely think with Lauren Cherice Designs I am a leader. When is comes down to favourite TV programs I am a follower :)

10. What is your favourite pizza topping?

I do love ham and pineapple!

So here are my nominations:

4. Countryside or the beach?
5. Have you got anything exciting planned for the rest of 2013?
6. What is your biggest achievement?

  1. Hi Thanks for nominating me......
    Do I answer questions here?... I shall anyway
    1) My biggest inspiration has to be a mish mash of lots of inspirations..... difficult to chose one but I love the geometry in nature like leaves, ferns creating patterns.
    2) My favourite food (another difficult question)... at the moment a "Chip Butty" soaked in vinegar on fresh bread with melted butter.
    4)I like both but perhaps I love the beach more
    5) A new website and brand imagery which I hope is less complicated than the one I have at the moment.
    6) Biggest achievement... is still designing in this difficult economical climate.... just about staying afloat.
    7) Strangely I am not mad keen on either... probably chocolate.
    8) Mascara and eyeliner.
    9)Gathering lots of images together and mashing them up.
    10) Childhood memories are my favourite.. playing and imagining lots of crazy things.
