Liebster Award

Much to my surprise I have been nominated for the Liebster award. Not knowing what that was I soon came to realize it is for blogs with fewer followers than 200. The idea is to help them get more followers, as far as I can tell. So thanks Brittany, from The Domestic Geek for nominating me.

The rules were stated to me as follows:
  • Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.
  • They must also answer the 11 questions the tagger has set for them.
  • They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
  • They must then choose 11 bloggers to tag with less than 200 followers.
  • These lucky bloggers must be told.
  • There are no tag backs.

Details about me:
  1. I love crafts, I always have been a doodler. From my earliest memories of math and writing I remember turning my numbers into people with hair and faces. I enjoy painting, sewing, felting, etc. 
  2. I love to cook. But I especially love baking. I am known amongst my friends for my delicious sweets. 
  3. I love trying out new and unusual recipes- that comes with the cooking part. 
  4. I was homeschooled until I graduated from high school. So my first real school experience was when I started college. 
  5. I loved being homeschooled and would love to do so with my kids. However, it isn't very well looked upon where I now live in Latvia. 
  6. I had my first 2 kids at home, and my 3rd in water. I like being more natural :) 
  7. My most interesting current birthday memory was when we celebrated my 30th birthday in Paris. 
  8. I would love to have my own coffee shop and bakery. I have way too many business ideas. 
  9. I love writing, journaling, etc. I have over 20 full journals. 
  10. I taught English in China one summer while in college. I loved it, I would love to go back someday. 
  11. We had two weddings when we got married so that friends and family in both countries could participate. One was just a show though- and one was the real thing :
