The Leibster Award ~ Gob smacked!

Wow!  What can I say??  Just 23 days after starting my blog, the lovely Bethany and Cathy at Photography with Words have nominated this blog for a Leibster Award 😀  Thank you so much.

The award is for blogs with less than 500 followers and is designed to be passed on after answering a few questions, so as part of my Blogging101 challenge is to post something different from my normal posts, this fulfils two briefs 😀

1.) Why did you decide to start to blog?

To record my self imposed challenges which hopefully would motivate me to complete them and to help me take better photographs

2.)What is your favourite memory?

Too many to choose from,  favourite memories are made every day

3.) Who inspires you?

People who follow their dreams

4.) What is your current goal in life?

I have to pick one??

5.) How would you describe yourself?

Do you know that feeling you get when you go to bed after the house is cleaned, the washing up is put away and the cushions are plumped up?  Nope..neither do I 🙂

6.)How much wood could a Woodchuck chuck if a Woodchuck could chuck wood? well…talking of wood……

Esau Wood sawed wood.
Esau Wood would saw wood with a wood saw.
Esau’s wood saw would saw wood!
One day, Wood’s wood saw would saw no wood,
so Wood sought a wood saw that would.
Then, Wood saw a wood saw saw wood as no
wood saw Wood ever saw wood sawed wood.
So Wood sought the wood saw that sawed wood
as no wood saw Wood ever saw ever sawed.
Now Wood saws wood with the wood saw Wood
saw saw wood as no wood saw
Wood ever saw would wood saw wood.

7.) What do you do for Fun?

Anything creative, from drawing to gardening, design to reading, painting to photography

8.) What is your dream vacation?

Arctic Circle to see the Northern Lights

9.) What is your favorite Quote?

“To live is the rarest thing in the world, most people just exist.”  Oscar Wilde

10.) Do you enjoy running a blog?

Absolutely loving it!

11.) What do you plan to do now?

Right now? Continuing drawing Christmas cards for one of my other personal challenges ( too many cards, too little time!!)

Now it’s time that I  nominate blogs that I think are fantastic, but they must have less than 500 followers. I hope you all check out each others blogs as well as finding blogs to nominate, answering the questions and helping to encourage other small but perfectly formed blogs
