I love a party! And what better reason to celebrate than being nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award!? | Halfpint DesignSunshine Blogger Award

More good news here at Halfpint Design! I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by my good friend Victoria, from One Sharp Mama. This award is given by bloggers to other bloggers who are positive, inspiring and creative. Yikes…no pressure!! But I'm honored to be considered and delighted to accept!

Victoria at One Sharp Mama nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award | Halfpint Design

Victoria and I met in a Facebook support group many months ago and I've lost count of how many times she has encouraged, taught, and inspired me! She writes about her experiences with infertility and a really tough pregnancy along with first time parenting issues, yummy recipes, and staying organized. She is the sweet friend who also nominated me for the Liebster Award months ago when I was just getting started! I love how blogging is a community that encourages everyone to thrive instead of a company of cutthroat competition. We can all elevate one another.

  1. If you could describe yourself in three words, what would they be?
    • Positive, Driven, and Creative
  2. Who is your blog and what do you write about?
    • I write at Halfpint Design, it's a blog dedicated to overtired moms, dads, and grandparents who want to plan fabulous birthday parties for their children/grandchildren with less stress, money, and sugar. I love gathering party ideas, hosting my own parties, and showing off the hard work of readers in our featured parties! If you are new to the blog you can read more about me and my journey. {that's my family up there!}
  3. What is your passion in life?
    • Besides my family, it would have to be travel, and design.
  4. If you could be anything, have any profession, what would that be?
    • I'm an interior designer who also gets to style parties, arrange flowers, and create home decor…from home. I couldn't come up with a better job description than that.
  5. What is your favorite book?
  6. What is your favorite thing to do in your down time?
    • Down time? Ha ha! Every minute not spent with my family is used for blogging but I do make sure my hubby and I get away a few times a year just the two of us.
  7. What’s your favorite television show?
    • I don't watch TV since I started my business but I really love Fixer Upper, and of course Downton Abby!
  8. If you won the lottery, what would you do with the money?
    • Get my parent's house finished
    • Pay off my own house
    • Take a trip to Bali and New Zealand
    • Save whatever was left for the 3 college educations I have in my future!
  9. What’s your favorite social media platform?
    • Pinterest would have to be the number 1. It's been my go to inspiration source for nearly 8 years. It's how people find my ideas and I'm so grateful for it! I did recently start focusing on Instagram too and that's been really fun. Pinterest is more utilitarian now so I go to Instagram for the eye candy and to connect and collaborate with other really amazing party people!
  10. If you could meet any celebrity, who would it be and why?
    • I'd love to meet Sting. He's an incredible musician and performer.
  11. Is the glass half empty or half full?
    • Half full always! I try to stay positive and see things from all angles. My husband worries I'm setting myself up for disappointment with my crazy goals but I live by the motto: “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.” – Norman Vincent Peale

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars. Great inspirational quote and my life's motto! Sunshine Blogger Award | Halfpint Design
