Sunshine and Blogger Appreciation Awards!

Thanks to Jayme of RAWR Creatures I was nominated for both the Sunshine Award and the Blogger Appreciation award. I'm so touched and happy to be nominated by such a lovely lady, and a fellow Canadian like myself!
The rules of accepting the awards is that I have to answer some questions.



 

Here are my answers to the Sunshine Award questions:

FAVOURITE COLOUR – Purple! I absolutely LOVE this colour. I make so many of my monsters in this colour, it's hard for me to remember that not everyone is a fan of purple.
ANIMAL – Kitties! OMG how I love kitties.
NON-ALCOHOLIC DRINK – Second Cup's Chai Latte. Like a liquid cookie in a cup. Mmmmmm
FACEBOOK or TWITTER – I like Facebook. Twitter is fun, cause of the 140 character challenge. Some days I think about posting in the format of a haiku.
GETTING or GIVING PRESENTS – I love to receive, but giving one of my handmade creations to someone and watching them unwrap it is the best.
FLOWER – Gerberas.
PATTERN – Rainbow stripes. I'm super addicted to this pattern right now. I love colourful fabrics!
PASSION – Um, I love nature. :)
NUMBER – 4. I'm a little OCD. Every time I kiss my kitties, it's always 4 kisses. Weird, I know! :)



The rules of the Blogger Appreciation Award:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award with their blog link on your post.
2. Answer the following 4 questions.
3. Award the Blogger Appreciation Award to as many readers/commentators/supporters/followers as you’d like.
4. Let the blogger know you've just awarded them (by leaving a comment, a tweet, an email, etc.)

The questions:
1. How long have you been blogging?
2. What are 1-2 reasons why you started blogging.
3. What types of blogs do you like to follow/read?
4. What is 1 thing you would like to improve on as a blogger/on your blog?

Here are my answers to the Blogger Appreciation questions:


1. How long have you been blogging?
I started blogging in 2011 when I decided to start my own monster making business. So about a year now.

2. What are 1-2 reasons why you started blogging.
I wanted to be able to share my creations with people, give them a chance to connect with me in other ways. I also find blogging a good way to expand my circle, and get more traffic to my online store (which is currently the hardest thing right now). As an entrepreneur, blogging is an essential part of my business.


3. What types of blogs do you like to follow/read?
I like to read fun blogs with lots of pretty pictures! Hahaha No, seriously I like blogs of lovely crafty ladies who do really cool stuff, and sometimes I'll come across a DIY blog.

4. What is 1 thing you would like to improve on as a blogger/on your blog?
Right now the biggest thing I'm working on is a blog schedule. I know that having a pre-planned schedule is important as a business person. It gives the readers something to look forward to (if there's a specific topic covered every week). Plus, I'll be able to blog more regularly that I have been currently.
