The Liebster Award

I have been recently nominated for the Liebster award and I'm so flattered. 
It's given to bloggers from other bloggers to show a little blog love. As part of it I have to answer some questions and nominate others for the award. So I'll kick off by thanking Libby Everall for nominating me. I'm feeling the love! 

Here are my questions:
1) What do you do if you run out of creative inspiration (for anything?)
  That's a tough question. If I feel stuck creatively, usually I'll just take a break. Fresh
 eyes always give you a new perspective. 

2) Morning or evening?
 EVENING, I'm a night owl. 

3) If you were a mythical creature, what would you be?
 Unicorn, baby! Either that or a pixie.

4) What's your favourite word? (Stealing the question, but I really wanna know.)
 Rumpelstiltskin, I just like the way it sounds. Or did you mean frequently used word? 
If that's the case, then it's "wow". 

5) What helps you concentrate?
 It depends on what I'm doing. If I'm drawing I need a clean environment and low music. If I'm working I need silence. Procrastination and I have a long history, the break up has been messy. 

6) What 3 things are you determined to achieve (generally)?
3 things, ok. I would like to settle into a job where I'm doing what I love (aka growing my card business atm). Master conversational sign language (I started whilst at uni, then stopped). Own my own home soon. 

7) What's your guilty pleasure?
 Oh wow, I have more of these than I probably should divulge. Well, I love ABBA. I also have a weakness for horrible reality tv; Made in Chelsea, Jersey Shore. Don't judge me. 

8) Would you rather live without a roof or without a "proper" floor?
 Without a proper floor. You always need a roof over your head. 

9) Why did you start your blog?
I did Media at GCSE level and we had to start a blog to review films. I liked it and after I finished, the blog just sat there. It wasn't until a couple of years later that I decided to rename it and have fun.

10) Have you ever eaten a whole cake?
Yes, many a cake has seen a monstrous death at my hand. To be fair, they were only small ones (and they had it coming). 

11) How much trouble would you be in if you had no hands?
  A lot! I love to draw and do other little crafty things, so no hands would be horrible.

Here is a list of people I would like to nominate

These are the questions for you to answer: 
1.Why did you start your blog?
2. What 3 things are you determined to achieve?
3. What's your strangest talent?
4.What's your current desktop photo?
5. Grab the nearest book to you and turn to page 53. What does it say?
6. What inspires you? 
7. What is your strangest phobia?

Feel free to answer the questions, I'm additionally nominating
 anyone who reads this. I love finding out random facts about people. 


  1. Lisa, thank you so much for nominating me! I'm afraid that my blog is on a diet at the moment due to a crazy amount of work at my day job, but it really means a lot to me that you thought of me. I LOVE learning more about my fellow bloggers, and your answers gave me some great chuckles. :)

    1. Ahh thats ok! Just wanted you to know I really liked your blog :) Hope work isn't whooping your butt too much though. All the best :)
