We have been nominated for The Disability Blogger Award by Jennie from Failure to Thrive No More. We love these awards and think it is pretty amazing that there is an Award to Bloggers who blog about Special Needs, Chronic Illness, and Mental Health! These topics are not always easy to talk about, so we love reading what others share! Thank you Georgina from Chronillicles for creating this award.
Questions from Jennie
What is your ‘why’ for starting your blog?
We started this blog to share crafts and educational activities that we do with our toddler. We really enjoy coming up with ideas that can be adapted based on age and ability level. Over time, the blog has evolved and we have been able to share so much more than that.
What is your coping strategy?
We both have two different coping strategies. Mine is to ask myself “Can I change this?”, if the answer is no, then i choose to try my best to put it to the side and stop worrying about it. This relieves a lot of stress. Mr. Not So Crafty prefers to find a tiny bit of time to himself to play a video game or watch a movie.
What is your favorite movie? Why?
The Princess Bride is probably one of both of our all time favorite movies! It is just such a good movie.
What is your favorite social media channel? Why?
Pintrest. Nothing we make turns out Pintrest perfect, but there is so much fun to look through!
If you could tell your younger self one thing, what would it be?
For me, it would be “just keep swimming”. Things get rough, but you just have to keep going. Mr. Not So Crafty says he would tell his younger self that sometimes things have to get worse before they can get better.
