Spread the love

First, I want to thank Tom Burton, for nominating me for another Sunshine Blogger Award! I’m truly humbled and wholeheartedly appreciate the nomination! Please check out his blog where I’m sure you’ll connect with his wonderful stories and warm soul.

  • Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link back to their blog so others can find them.
  • Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger who nominated you.
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 new questions.
  • Notify the nominees about it on one of their own posts.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post and/or your blog site.

1. Where are you from?

I grew up in a few very small towns in upstate NY. I moved to FL about 10 years ago. It was quite the culture shock needless to say. I’ve met many wonderful people in this chapter of my story, but there are other areas of the world that beckon me and will someday add new chapters to my story.

2. Do you think of yourself more as an early bird or night owl? 

I am definitely a morning person, I get up around 4 every morning (maybe 5 on the weekends) and I’m in bed by 9 on weeknights (or as I call it school nights because I work in a school).

3. What is your birthstone?

 What's the story behind Blue Sapphire?  #gems #jewelry #bluesapphire #sapphire #royalty

4. What’s your favorite season of the year and why?

Autumn because it is timeless and magical, a gentle reminder at how beautiful and inspiring change can be. For some inspired autumn magic, check out my poem The Golden Embers of Autumn.

These are some drawings I did on paper bags for the Thanksgiving food drive that last year at a local school. We wanted to make them festive to send home not only food to help their families, but also some thoughtful holiday cheer.

5. What’s a favorite quote that’s really inspired you?

Advice from the Moon.png

My blog title is the “Sunshine Artist,” however, I truly find that the moon’s light is also inspiring and magical (even if I’m not a night owl). Maybe it’s the dreamer in me or the whimsical artist, but Iian Shamir, with all his quotes about advice from various elements of nature truly inspires me.

6. If you could choose one fantasy world to visit for a day, which one would it be?

I feel enchanted and inspired by the fantasy worlds my own mind is always creating, one of my favorites is in a recent poem of mine, Surrender to the Sea.

7, How do you like to wind down after a busy day?

Recently it’s been by reading for a half an hour to an hour before bed, it’s a nice way to unwind. Granted sometimes, I don’t want to stop reading…even though my eyes want to close and say goodnight to the day.

Book Adventures

7. What would your dream job be?

I would love to be a full-time blogger who writes and illustrates her own works. Technically the blog allows me to do just this, just not earning a paycheck from it.Image result for winking emoji

8. Why did you start blogging?

Blogging has allowed me to connect with my creativity as well as share it with others to spread a little light, hope, and inspiration.

9. What have you enjoyed most about blogging so far?

Finding a family here in the blogging community. So many wonderful friends that have touched my life through their warm hearts, support, encouragement, creativity, inspiration, humor, passion, and adventurous souls.

10. Which of your own blog posts would you recommend to new readers first?

One of my favorites is Whispers of the Night: A Muses Gift

It truly embodies the essence of what this blog is all about and gives a wonderful reminder of how unique and special each and every one of us really us.

My Writer’s Mission Statement because I think it’ll give light to why I blog and seek to achieve as a writer, artist, and a blogger.

To close this post, I’m not going to create my own questions, nor am I going to tag others. Instead, I’d like to take the time to thank all of you who support, encourage, and inspire me. Here’s a special warm embrace going out to Winnie, Richa, Gina, Punam, Carolyn, and Sa for being constant rays of sunshine filling my heart with warmth, kindness, and friendship and helping to create this family that means a lot to me. Please stop by and check out each of their blogs as they are sure to shine their light on you and fill you with warmth, not to mention their amazing writing will pull you in and leave you wanting more!

Thank you to each and every person that I meet, as you continue to add depth to the joy writing, drawing, and blogging brings me. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to meet new friends and grow my blogging community family.

From my heart to yours, 

Embrace your shine, and let your light shine bright!

  1. Nice to know more about you Jenna … I have followed you, got your post before this but not this one??? WP!
    I really love your attitude and your art, I’ll have that hot chocolate with marshmellows please 🙂

  2. Aww! Thanks for the mention, sweetheart! You are one wonderful person and the more I know you, the more I am thankful to WP for giving me an opportunity to meet lovely people. Stay blessed always. 🤗💕
    Needless to add, your artwork is mindblowing. 👌👌

    1. You’re very welcome Punam!🤗
      I’m so greatful to have met you, and for WordPress giving me the opportunity to have wonderful people like you in my life!

      My artwork has definitely been leaning more towards the mystical and magical vibes recently, but I enjoy creating super cute artwork with a cartoonish or anime vibe too.😉 💕

  3. Thanks, my dear friend Jenna – I enjoyed to read your answers and found that we both have the same biorythsm – as I am an early bird too, rising normally between 4-5 in the morning. During the winter times I go also earlier to bed, but in summer, when we have 24 hours daylight here, then I sleep only 3-4 hours every night.
    You are a really nice and kind person and sunshine radiates from your face which I like very much. A cheerful smile is really contagious.

    Thanks my dear friend and congratulation for this award given to you (from sunshine to sunshine 🙂 )

    A big hug from heart to you
    Didi

    1. Awww thank you so much Didi! I’m glad you see that I have a contagious cheerfulness…that is definitely how my closest friends and family describe me.😊❤️
