The Liebster Award

Hi everyone :-D

Today I have some exciting news to share with you: I was nominated for a Liebster Award by Jas of All that´s Jas! Thank you so much, Jas! :-D This was a pleasant surprise. I am very honored! :-D 

As a newbie blogger, I have never heard about the Liebster award, until now. I red information in Jas´s post and searched on the Internet for more. Among all information provided on the Internet, I found very helpful and detailed post by Lorraine Reguly of Wording Well. Here are some interesting information, as well as the official rules of the Liebster Award I used from Lorraine´s post.

This award exists only on the Internet. It is given to bloggers by other bloggers.
Award has German origins. The word "liebster" has several definitions: dearest, sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, welcome, sweetheart.
This award follows similar principles as a chain letter, in a sense it should be passed forward to a certain number of people. 
The choice lies within each of us to accept the award and continue forwarding it. 
You are not obligated to accept the award and can stop the chain. 
Over the time, variations have been made to the "rules". 

The Official Rules of the Liebster Award
If you have been nominated for the Liebster Award and you choose to accept it, write a blog post about the Liebster Award, following few simple rules.
1) Thank the person who nominated you and post a link to their blog on your blog .
2) Display the award on your blog by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a "widget" or a "gadget". 
3) Answer 11 questions about yourself asked by the person who nominated you. 
4)  List 11 random facts about yourself. 
5) Nominate 5 - 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have less than 1000 followers.  
6) Create a new list of questions for the nominated bloggers to answer. 
7) List these rules in your post. 
8) Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster Award and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it. 

If you will use information provided above (italic text) in your own blog post, 
please be kind and link back to the original post, not mine. 
Thank you.

Jas asked me these questions:
1) What made you decide to start a blog?
In December 2013 I started to share my creations on the Internet publicly. I started my public FB page, Crafty Milka, and YouTube channel. Last summer I started to join challenges. I did that through FB, but that was not practical at all. As I started to play more and more, FB was not a solution at all. It took me ages to link up everything! Also, FB is acting weird when your posts have a lot of written text
Playing, I met a lot of crafty people who had their own blogs. It was so difficult to follow all that without blog. My computer and mail suffered a lot! My computer´s bookmark bar started to look like junkyard. I couldn´t find anything or it took me ages to find it. Such a waste of time!  
I also wanted to create my crafty place on the Internet, something like a web page, but with minimum costs.
Starting my own blog was reasonable solution and a good one! :-D
2) What is the most rewarding thing about blogging? 
Learning new things, meeting new people and having fun.
3) What is the most challenging thing about blogging? 
To keep blog interesting.  
4) What blog post are you most proud of? 
I am proud of my whole blog and all blog posts. 
5) How did you find your niche? 
I was born that way. 
6) What is your dream job?
To have my own business. 
7) Fun fact about your project/recipe that went wrong. 
When I make muffins I like to experiment with filling. Once I made chocolate cream and filled muffins with it. While baking, all muffins exploded and all cream poured out. There was a lot of cleaning. :-D 
8) Where would you love to live? 
I don´t have favorite place to live. For me, the most important are people and vibration of the place where I live.
9) What is your favorite color? 
I don´t have one favorite color, but three of them: violet, blue and black.
10) If you´d win lottery, what is the first thing you´d buy? 
Ticket to Lhasa, Tibet.
11) What makes the world go ´round for you? 

11 random facts about me:
1) I was born in 1981 in Celje, Slovenia.
2) I am Pisces.
3) My name is an old Hebrew and Slavic name.
4) I speak Croatian, Slovenian and English fluently.
5) I am crazy about Mathematics, Crossword Puzzles, Sudoku, Origami, Sacred Geometry, Astrology, Numerology, Mythology, book reading. 
6) I love housework and my favorites are cooking, dish washing and ironing. I also love to garden. It is so fun and great satisfaction to grow my own food.
7) I love natural cosmetics and I make my own face and body creams.
8) My favorite season is spring. 
9) My favorite instrument is didgeridoo. 
10) My favorite movie genres are Documentary and Fantasy.
11) My favorite crafts are paper-crafts, modeling and drawing/painting.

    1. This is such a fun way to learn about fellow blogger! We have few things in common, among them cooking, dishwashing, and ironing (must be the Balkan in us, lol). My aunt lived in Celje when I was little and I spent 6 months there after a devastating earthquake in my hometown (Banja Luka). Since then i have forgotten how to speak Slovenian. :)
      I laughed out loud at your answer to #7. Your cards are darling, your style consistent, which I admire. I am always all over the place, lol. So nice to "meet" you Milka. Hugs!
