Liebster Award

I was nominated by Kate blogging over at Creative House Bog and Stephanie over at the Thrifty in the Burg. For those of you who don’t know what the Liebster award is, it’s an award for bloggers who have under 200 followers, or those who are just starting out to develop their reader and fan base. Thank you so much Kate and Stephanie for the Nomination! I am so honored to have received the award and build my blogging networking!So I have to answer some questions about myself and then nominate 11 others.

1. How did you decide on the title of your blog, and what’s it about?

The Clutter Box is a reflection of how my brain works. The direction of the blog is changing so it's not a clutter of random stuff. I am hoping to grow it in more specific direction, regarding feminist studies, goal setting, and a few expression posts (like self portraits and creative photoshoots)

2. Can you give 11 random facts about yourself?

I am very good at being a pseudo-extrovert

I prefer working with guys over girls

I am working towards 10000 steps daily

I am learning how to

quiet my mind

be kind again

enjoy people

not take offense when people compliment me

I do not drink coffee - makes my heart race and hurts a ton

I hope that my favorite books are never made into movies

I love driving, I use to hate it

I hate being on someone else time schedule and I do not appreciate being late

3. What is something you’ve been loving lately?

I have been loving my freedom. I do eventually need to get back to work. But I have been loving every second of not working.

4. What is it you love most about blogging?

Blogging started off as a way of expressing myself in more of a diary setting. It has been changing over the last few months into a way of educating, sharing, and networking. Mostly myself and hopeful it will help others too.

5. If you had 3 wishes, what would they be?

I wish that Kevin would get his dream job and it would be everything he hoped for

I wish that our five year plan would work out the way we want it and that he will love it

I wish that I can find a way to work at home, stay creative and be a truly happy person. I've missed that

6. Where does your blog inspiration come from?

Books, things I see, others inspiring me to be more creative and projects I've been waiting to experiment with!

7. What is one country in the world you would like to visit? Why?

Japan. I love their culture. They are very technology advanced and it would be great to see the old and the new and explore all around it!

8. If you have kids or pets? Tell me about your babies.

no pet no kids. One day I would really love to have a beautiful running dog!! Something that will run marathons with me, but snuggle beside the fire too!

9. A long-lost relative leaves you a large sum of money. What do you do with it?

Student Loans with the goal of being debt free. I would be so happy if someone allowed us to stay over at zero.

10. What is something you do when you need to take time for yourself?

currently yoga, meditation, and running!

11. Where do you see yourself in five years time?

Training for a marathon, running with a puppy, Kevin happily working at his dream job. A house big enough to run a bed and breakfast in and close to a beach! (fingers crossed!)
