Blog Your Heart Out

I have been nominated by Katie to participate in the Blog Your Heart Out Challenge. This is an online chain letter where I need to answer 5 questions and then pass the questions on to 5 other bloggers. Sounds like fun.
Thanks for the nomination Katie. Here are my answers to the questions:

Who/What encouraged you to start blogging?

I was encouraged to begin blogging by all the great blogs that are out there. I was so incredibly impressed by all the creativity and the sharing, and I wanted to be a part of this wonderful community. I was also very much encouraged by my husband to start up my blog and show off my crafts.

How did you choose what to blog about?

I was originally going to only blog about scrapbooking and card making, but the more I thought about it, I realized that I would be leaving out so many of my other crafty pursuits. So I decided to include my crochet projects, my sewing projects, some home decor things...making my blog a place for all things crafty.

What is something most people don't know about you?

I took German language classes for 13 years. I don’t speak German very well despite this, but can understand when others are talking.
I have a Health Studies degree with a minor in Gerontology.
I love being at home and pottering around.

What three words describe your style?

Creative, Planner, Simple

What do you love to do when you are not blogging?

When I am not blogging I love to work in my garden, bake, cook, and spend time with my family. And of course I always have a craft project or four in the works.

And now I send these questions to these five bloggers:

I look forward to learning a little more about these ladies. Thanks again for the nomination Katie.
