Hey, guys! I am in bliss to receive the Sunshine Blogger Award Nomination! This was my third virtual award and I am only blogging for over 3 months now. My blog is my joy and I am more charmed to have met such wonderful people, a tribe of like-minded individuals whom I feel so near and yet so far, far away like some were across the oceans! I love that we can connect and collaborate in doing the things that we love –writing for everyone just as the sun that shines bright to the world!
Totally inspired with my fellow writers who put their outlook of the world and continuously support recognizing everyone’s contribution to the community. A massive thank you to Erin of A Beautiful Life, The Journey for nominating me. I’ve been really behind in posting this as I've had a very tight schedule these past weeks but I wanted to also give my whole focus on this meaningful and wonderful opportunity given to me.

Now it is my turn to choose 11 bloggers who are creative, positive and inspiring.

My answers to Erin’s 11 Questions…
1 Why did you start your blog? What do you want others to get from reading your blog?
I was journaling on my latest handmade craft creation one day and I thought why not start to connect with the other crafters. I wanted to share and learn, as well as share what I've learned on how to start a home business by doing what you love and for me, that is crafting!
2 If you had to give your personality a color, what color would you be and why?
It would be a turquoise blue. I love all the different color shades of blue. The color of water and sky that brings peace, calm and tranquility.
3 Do you have pets? Are you a dog or a cat person?
We have 4 fur babies namely KC, Billy, Bruce and Penny. I am a dog person.
4 Tell me a little about you and your family?
Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve been doing all kinds of crafting such as creating myself my own paper wallet, Garfield poster, cards for my best friend and decorating my own study table with flowers and stickers. Crafting has become my passion and so as my mom and 2 siblings. I remember how excited we’ve been every coming of Easter season. We would love decorating our home garden altogether, color painting eggs, hanging handmade baskets and we even have our own family egg hunting celebration with our church community that makes us so excited to help preparing for!
5 What is your favorite drink?
Iced latte and iced mocha with whip cream topped with caramel.
6 If you could give one piece of advice to a new blogger, what would it be and why?
To focus on the content, I know there’s a lot more thing to do as well but don’t compromise the quality of your content as it is such a big factor for readers to stay longer and to keep coming back to your blog
7 What is your favorite thing about yourself?
My dedication to something that I want to pursue.
8 If you had to choose 1 meal for your last meal, what would you choose and why?
That would be a medium rare prime rib and Romaine and Gorgonzola salad with blue cheese vinaigrette, a warm corn muffin (my favorite style) and some Russian honey cake with hot fudge topped with a frozen Greek yogurt sprinkled with Ghirardelli bittersweet chips!
9 What are some of your hobbies other than blogging?
Reading blogs online, crafting and gardening.
10 Did you have someone that help you when you first began blogging, and if so, who?
Yes, it is my mentor Maristella and she's our neighbor! She’s been a great help with my blog.
11 What is one of your dreams? In
In a realistic sense, my dream is to be able to travel around the world and I have a huge bucket list. To complete first our 52 US state tour then head to 100 different places from other countries! I will fulfill that dream at any cost.
