    The Liebster Award-Another Round 

    I guess I am sucker for Awards. Thanks to http://brownboyspeaks.wordpress.com/2014/09/03/the-liebster-award/. ( I read how to shorten links, but forget how since I do not use it enough. This link could be shortened!) So I was nominated for the leibster award again and could not resist. I agree with who nominated me that this is a great way to explore new blogs and support other bloggers.

    Here are the rules:

    • If you’re nominated, you must provide a link back to the person who nominated you.
    • Give 11 facts about yourself.
    • Answer the 11 questions created by the user who nominated you
    • Nominate 11 people & ask 11 questions for them to answer!

    These are Eleven Facts About Me:

    1. I love antiques, vintage finds and retro stuff.

    2. I would love to spend 24 hours without sleep doing crafts or diy while watching you tube.

    3. Speaking of YouTube, I watch videos from a variety of subject including the crafts and diy; Today I am listening to videos on    psychopathic behaviors. I watch crime which connects sometimes with the latter. I watch movies and health videos. I listen  to music and almost daily listen and or watch a video that has something to do with online business.

    4. In spite of this, sometimes I wish I could escape the internet and go back to the days when I did not have it in front of me         and the have to’s to keep up with all my connections on here.

    5. So I have 3 places I am selling some of the things I love: https://www.etsy.com/shop/DappledMoonEmporium?                ref=search_shop_redirect Loving crafts and vintage stuff, you can discern why I am doing this. (Hint: I ran out of room to stor and display all my handmade and collections. I will keep a lot though. lol) I also sell my more up to date items and not woth as much stuff for credits on a site called ” Listia. I then can buy craft supplies with the credits which means no money is needed. Ebay did me good a few years back, so I am doing that with some items also. ( Since I do not want to go on and on here, I am not adding the links for the latter 2 .) I may post them someday, but I want to go easy on my readers and keep you from deciding not to read further. lol)

    6. I like unusual names and wish mine was not so common; I have about a dozen friends on Face Book with my 1st name.         Ugh!

    7. I could never figure out a certain career choice because I like so many different subjects.

    8. I have lived in Washington, Oregon, Montana , Florida and Missouri.

    9. The state I want to visit is Maine.

    10. I love chickens and cats. (Contradiction?)

    11. In reference to #10: I have what is called “brittle asthma” and have a deadly allergy to both animals. (This has been a             hinderence to me my whole life, though I count my blessings and live with it as well as I can.)

    On to Part 2: Questions given me by brownboyspeaks:

    1. Who inspired you to blog?  I would say it has to be myself.
    2. What are your hobbies?  As stated prior, crafting, creating, collecting. I also read, love games, learn, internet, decotae my home. (Check out my photos on here,hin, hint.) Studying crime, missing people.Thrift stores, flea markets, yard sales. This and that. List making?
    3. How many languages can you speak? Please list all of them. Finally an easy one. English alone.
    4. Another easy one: How many countries have you travelled to? Never been out of U.S.
    5. When was the last time you were so drunk that you couldn’t walk straight? 25 years ago
    6. What is your comfort food? I would say any nut butter.
    7. Where is your favourite place that you have ever visited? Hard to name one, but a dream from my childhood was to visit Laura Ingall’s wilder home and museum in Mansfield Missouri which I did about 3 years ago.
    8. Do you own a smart phone and/or tablet? Yes, but gifted it to my kids to use.
    9. Do you know where Malaysia is? Yes, but would not be able to name it on a map for a perfect score.

    Love for Lists. Tuesday Thinking of….. 

    I love lists. It is so hard for me to keep from reading one of almost any subject if I see one on the internet and “working” Oh the perils of managing your own time and accountability only to yourself!

    I also write lists every day. I have actually tried to force myself to not write that “to do” list once and awhile and just relax and “go with the flow” on some days, but it never works. I just want to sleep and am pulling my hair out. I find myself making a list and my left hand just can’t stop my right from doing it. My daily lists usually have anywhere from 15 to 100 things I want to do daily. there is my list of things I try to do daily at the top such as exercise, a load of laundry, work emails, (Yes, even when it is supposed to be my day off; Such is the life of selling stuff on line!) I sweep through the house and pickup all over room by room as fast as I can do it. It is not a perfect sweep by any means and I do try to do it at night before bed also. On work days and some other nights this does not pan out well. I am too tired or just do not want to stop working on building my businesses.

    Anyway, here are few sites that fulfill my list cravings:

    http://www.listof.org/ Many helpful lists when you need something. Not just fun lists to read.

    http://listverse.com/ This is my favorite site for lists.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_lists_of_lists thgis is the never ending list spot. They go on and on. Start with a list, then find another one on the page you went to and spend days there> Reminds me of the guy that died playing video games because he went without stop for about a week. (Yes I did read this fact on a list site. lol)

    Put lists on your search engine and see what you find.

    So do you make to do lists, grocery lists, fun lists, vacation lists or such and are like me lost without one. Do you like lists or hate them like some people I know? Perhaps you read lists, but do not like to write them. What is your take on lists of any kind-you find?

    My internet is acting up and somehow I got an extra photo on there for DIY I did with coasters. At one time they were on a list of craft ‘to do’s’, so am leaving them here.
