Cassidy from Things Like Skeleton Keys & Me nominated me for the Liebster Award. Thanks Cassidy!
This award is like a chain mail style letter given to up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers to help promote them.
11 "About Me"'s:
1. I am a freelance artist. I absolutely love to draw and paint!
2. I'm an Aries, which pretty much means nothing to you unless you care, in which case; you now know I am hard headed, vain (obviously), passionate, and daring.
3. Number 3 is my favorite number. It reminds me of deep violets and Wednesday afternoons.
4. I grew up reading Harry Potter and will always have an amazing connection to those books. I went through some severe depression and those stories were my safe haven.
5. I am writing/illustration a children's book as well as working on a novel. Both are trying, but amazing goals to be met!
6. My family is pretty big. I have 3 sisters and 1 eldest brother. My two older sisters are married with two children, one with twins, the other with a small son and daughter. My brother was married last year in April and is planning for his first child! My youngest sister is a free spirit with more wit and sass than most adults I know. I love my siblings dearly and miss them all the time.
7. My boyfriend, Aaron, has a 5 year old daughter. She has my heart, this one!
8. I have three addictions, chocolate, tea, and thrifting.
9. We have over 5 pets on our home. A cat (miss toffie), a sunconure (miss marly), a snake/sandboa ( miss pumpkin), a mexican redknee tarantula (eeek!), and several aquatic pets that Aaron cares for. We've had jellyfish, puffer fish, octopus....
10. My front tooth broke in half during some immature shenanigans in LA last year, half of that tooth is ceramic.
11. I have two tattoos, one of a small fairy on my right hip line, the other under my right collar bone, that reads, "passion rules reason" - its a wizards rule.
