Blogger Recognition​ Award

blogger-recognition-award-logo

Recently I was nominated to do this award by Maya. Thank you so much! Be sure to check out her blog, it’s very cool!

The rules

  • Write a post to show your award.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and leave a link to their blog.
  • Give a brief story of how and why you started blogging.
  • Give two pieces of advice you would give to brand new bloggers.
  • Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to.
  • Comment on each blog letting them know you have nominated them giving the link to the post you have created.

 

Why I started blogging:

I started blogging because I’d always liked to craft and do DIY projects, and this is a way for me to share my creativity and (hopefully) inspire other people, which is something I just really love to do!

 

Advice for starting bloggers:

  • Make friends in the blogging community. This is something that really helps you to grow your blog and it’s so much fun to discover other blogs. Start with just commenting on blogs that are similar to yours and you will meet loads of amazing people!
  • Try to post regularly. Your followers like to know when they can expect new posts. Instead of posting 3 times in one week and only once in the next, try posting twice every week. But: don’t just write random posts because you have to post something that day. Only write about things you really like, that interests you or you think is fun to do. Blogging should be a hobby, not an obligation!

 

My nominees:

Mimi

Bekah

Starling

Ellie

Erin

Chachel

Aanmarie

Make sure to check these bloggers out, they’re all amazing!

 

Well, that was it.I hope you enjoyed this post. If you did, please like, comment and/or share. I would really appreciate that. And follow me for more DIYs and creative content!

The Fall Tag

Processed with Rookie Cam

Hello everyone!

I’m happy to announce that I’ve been nominated to do this tag by Maddie! Her blog is amazing, you should definitely check it out!

 

The Rules:

  1. Put the tag badge and rules in your post. (and link to the person who nominated you)
  2. Answer the 10 fall-related questions.
  3. Tag at least 5 other bloggers to join the fun!

 

What’s your favorite fall outfit?

My favorite fall outfit is probably a light pink crocheted sweater that I own with a pair of jeans and high boots. I just really love sweaters. 🙂

Your favorite drink to have in the fall?

Definitely hot chocolate, preferably with whipped cream.^^
Does your family have any fall traditions? If so, what are they?

When I was little we used to go to the woods to collect pretty leaves and acorns and such in fall. Now we often go ice skating, which is always a lot of fun.
What are some activities and events you enjoy going to in the fall months?

I love fall forest walks, going ice skating or just sitting inside with a book and a cup of tea and reading.
What’s your favorite fall-scented candle?

I’m not sure, I don’t really have a lot of scented candles. But pinewood scented candles are nice I guess.
Tell us about one of your favorite fall memories.

That must have been one of the fall forest walks I made as a kid with my family. It was always so much fun to walk around and collect acorns. Sometimes we would use them and make little people and houses out of acorns and toothpicks. I used to love that.
What are some fall movies you enjoy watching?

I don’t know.. what falls under a fall movie?

 

What’s your favorite fall treat?

Apple pie of course! I LOVE apple pie. It’s a great fall treat, but I also like it in summer, winter or spring.😂

 

If you celebrate Halloween, what is the best costume you’ve worn?

Where I live we don’t really celebrate Halloween with costumes, so I don’t know..

These are the people I nominate. Of course, you don’t have to do the tag, only do it if you want to!

I was just scrolling through my followed posts when I realised I had been nominated for two awards! I decided to combine them into one post. So let’s go!

  8. If you could have one talent/skill, what would it be? 
  9. I would love to be able to draw really well, I think that would be a really cool skill
  10. Dream profession?
    I don’t know but I definitely want to do something creative, it would be awesome to be able to create an income by blogging.
  11. Would you mind sharing a writing tip?
    I you ever have inspiration write it down immediately! I have too often had that I had a great idea but forgot about it later.
  12. Why do you blog?
    I just love sharing my creativity with the world and it makes me really happy when people like my content and get inspired by it.

Thank you so much Chachel for nominating me for this award!

Her questions:

1.What’s the reason behind the name of your blog?

I’m not sure if there’s a real reason. I guess I just chose it because I do DIY projects and I liked the sound of LittleDIYProjects.

2. Are you a bookworm?

Yes I am. I just love reading books. It makes able to travel to different worlds for a while and it’s just a great way to relax.

3. Do you have any special cool talent?

Ehm… I’m not sure. I can play the piano quite well but that’s not because I’m talented, I’ve just been doing it for a long time.

4. What’s your favorite Ice Cream flavour? (If you don’t like Ice-cream than I dunno what to tell you?)

I love ice-cream! I really like lemon ice cream but chocolate and cinnamon are also delicious.

5. What weird food combinations do you really enjoy?

I don’t know…

6. What book can you read over and over without ever getting tired of?

Harry Potter, definitely. I’ve read all the books three times but I’m nowhere near fed up with them!

7. What mythical creature do you wish actually existed?

I really wish phoenixes existed. It would be really cool to have a pet that can’t die.

8. If magic was real which spell would you want to learn right away?

I’d learn a spell to make myself invisible. That wold be really cool.

9. Am I the only one who has problems with their blog when they just can’t come up with what to post???

No, I sometimes don’t know what to post either. Luckily I have a little book where I write all my ideas so there’s usually something in there.

10. If you can be a character in any movie which movie would you choose to be in?

I guess Harry Potter too. I just want to go to Hogwarts!! But one of the first movies, so there aren’t too many deaths.

11. Last but not least, lets ask the classic question with a twist, Whats your favorite combination of colors?

I like a turquoise-ish blue with plain white. I just really like that vibe I guess.

My questions:

  1. What is your favourite number?
  2. Do you have any pets?

  7. What are your biggest pet peeves?
  8. What is your favourite book of all time?
  9. Would your rather live in a city or in the countryside?
  10. Are you more of an introvert or an extrovert?
