I have been nominated......

... for the Leibster Award!
Thank you Fabienne from Snail mail Love.

So here we go!

The Rules 
1. Mention the person who nominated you on your own blog and link them.
2. Answer the 11 questions chosen by the person who nominated you
3. Nominate 5 to 11 more blogs you like who have less than 200 followers.
4. Create your 11 questions
5. Let your nominees know!

1* What is your Favorite and Least Favorite part of having a blog?
My favorite part would have to be the responses I get to a post. It's such a nice feeling when you hear that something I have worked hard on does something to someone.
The part I struggle with sometimes is the pressure to post regularly. Obviously that is something I pressure myself to do.
 But I always find it a shame when I really like a blog but the person only posts about once a year. I don't want to become that person. But combined with all my other obligations , writing a blogpost sometimes falls inbetween the cracks. And I can feel really guilty about that.

2* What are some of your sources of inspiration?
This is a tough one.. I love browsing Pintrest. For blog -inspiration I love reading other people's blogs. See what they are writing about.

3* If you where given $100 to spend on yourself , what would you buy first?
A new pair of runningshoes.
I started running a while back but had to stop due to the fact that my old shoes where making an existing foot-injury worse. So on the advice of my physical therapist I'm holding off on running until I have some new shoes.
And since money doesn't grow on trees I need to save up some money first.
For the record; I've always hated running.. until now. I actually miss it...

4*Do you have any guilty pleasures?
You mean aside form the small bowl of Doritos and the can of Monster I have here?
I think going to bed early would classify. I love that, when I'm home alone, I can just go to bed at 21.30 if I feel like it. Also, taking a nap. Fabulous!

5* What's your favorite word in a foreign language?
That has to be the German "wettervorhersage" It means "weatherforecast".
I've always liked it. 
** we used to watch a lot of german tv at home..

6* What's the story behind a random object in your room?
With a whole house filled with random objects .. what to choose?
Well we have a spray bottle on our diningroom table. You know, what you usually use to spray your plants with. We use ours to correct Abby. Since she is deaf we can't use verbal commands. And when she is naughty we spray her. These days just showing the bottle is enough warning. The rule is that she has to sit on her bed while we eat. And we use the spray to "enforce" it.

7* What is your most bought stationery intem?
It's a toss between notebooks and pens. 
I have a huge stack of unused notebooks. *blush* So at the moment I'm on a notebook-buying-ban.
Second most bought are pens. Nothing expensive; just random cute ballpoints and gellpens.

8* How do you take your tea/coffee?
Tea: just the tea please. Preferably some "weird" flavor
Coffee: either as strong as possible; black. Or with lots of milk and sugar. And at a coffeeshop I usually go for the most extravagant combination. Cause I can drink regular coffee at home.

9* Do you have any craft-related favorite books?
I'm not shure if it's craft-related but I love " Groots &Meeslepend Leven" from Lou Niestadt.
It is only in Dutch but talkes about how to make an ordinary life grand. And also about art-journaling. I went to one of her workshops last year and it inspired me to draw more in my journal. 

10* What's something about you that would be impossible to assume?
Ehm.. well.. I'm actually very much an open book.
Maybe the fact that I have 3 tattoo's?

11* Do you collect anything?
apart from craft-materials? ;)
I have a small selection of fountainpens.. and some on my whishlist still.
I also have a small collection of glass presse-papiers. But , aside going to Venice and buying some, they are hard to find. So the collection isn't growing very fast.
Other than that I am currently trying to own less "stuff".
So I am currently getting rid of lots of things I have been hanging on to for far too long and without a good reason.

Thank You Fabienne for all of these Lovely questions!

  1. I love reading your answers! I wouldn't have assumed you had 3 tattoos, so your guess there was right! Now I know we have one more thing in common :D
    Thanks so much for playing along <3

    (Oh and my name is actually Fabrizia, not that I make too much effort to make people know :P so no worries about the misspelling, it actually happens more often than one would think, and I find it to be rather entertaining :D)

  2. Leuk dat je me genomineerd hebt! Ik weet nog niet precies wat het inhoud, maar morgen ga ik er eens goed voor zitten. Ik neem aan dat het ook gewoon in Nederlands kan? Ik vond je antwoorden trouwens heel leuk...
    Liefs, Peetje

    1. het is een mogelijkheid voor blogs met minder als 200 volgers om wat bekender te worden.
      Geen idee hoe veel volgers jij hebt maar toch ;-)
      Uiteraard is in het Nederlands prima!

  3. Hallo lieve Janine,
    Dankjewel voor de nominatie! Ik hoop dat je me niet ondankbaar vindt, maar ik sla even over. Ik ben momenteel druk met andere dingen en ik zou zo ook niet zoveel andere blogs weten die ik dan weer moet nomineren.
    Ik vind het heel lief dat je aan me dacht. Wellicht een keer in de toekomst.
    XXX Brigit.

    1. zeker is dat geen probleem!
      Als je ooit wel nog mee wilt doen dan weet je de vragen te vinden ;-)

  4. Yay! Thanks so much for nominating me!! That's so awesome! I get tons of inspiration from Pinterest too as well as other bloggers! I love fountain pens! I collect anything that in the shape of an owl! I love owls!

    1. I'll keep a look out on your blog to see all of your answers
