Leibster Award

This is quite the deviation from the norm, but I received a comment on one of my blog posts saying a fellow blogger, Haven, had nominated me for a Liebster Award. It's an award that you pass on to a fellow blogger that you like and enjoy reading their posts.

I am fairly new the blogging world, and don’t follow too many blogs that aren’t strictly “challenges.” My sister and I mainly started this blog to share our crafts, geekiness and write some fun stories. I’m glad someone likes reading the adventures of the Crafters Guild which mostly takes place in my head. With that being said, I won’t be able to pass this on to 11 other people, but I will to as many as possible.

The Rules:
1. Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.
2. They must also answer the 11 questions the tagger has set for them.
3. They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
4. They must then choose 11 special bloggers to tag & award with the Liebster award
5. These bloggers must be told in a comment on their blog

Here’s 11 Things About Me
1) I live in the Canadian prairies where in the winter the snowbanks are taller than me
2) I devour books - nom nom nom
3) I love videogames and managed a retail video game store for 5 years
4) I’m usually listening to videogame soundtracks while I craft
5) In the summer I play tennis and mountain bike
6) I am very shy
7) I have an enormous collection of stuffed animals that I can’t bear ←{haha} to part with
8) If alone, I’m scared of the dark (probably due to my overactive imagination) 
9) I detest driving - especially in the winter
10) I’m super cheap...er...frugal...and HATE shopping with a passion
11) I love playing super dorky boardgames (my husband and I have over 70!) Here's one in action:
These are Haven’s Questions
1) What’s your favourite food?
This is a hard one...I think I’d have to go with butter chicken. I love East Indian food.
2) When did you start scrapping?
I’ve been making cards ever since I was a kid, but I didn’t really get into the “scrapping world” - so to speak - until 2010 when I bought a Cricut...from there it was just a landslide of craft supplies and I’ve been hooked ever since.
3) What famous person would you want to be?
I don’t think I’d want to be a famous person. I like being able to meld into the background of society when necessary.
4) Do you have a job outside of the home?
Unfortunately yes. (I have to pay for my craft supplies somehow...oh and bills and food and stuff too {lol}). I work in the service department of a luxury car dealership.
5) What was your major in college?
Journalism. I took it because I like writing. Didn’t pursue it because, quite frankly, I’m not outgoing enough to be a journalist.
6) Favourite scrap technique?
I don’t know that I have a favourite technique...hmm...I do really like paper piecing stamped images using patterned paper - mostly because it saves time from colouring it {lol}
7) Scrap tool you couldn’t live without?
Probably my heat tool. I don’t know how I lived without it before I had it!
8) Favourite season?
Fall. It’s not as hot as summer, and there’s (usually) no snow yet, so driving isn’t treacherous. Days are still warm, but it cools down at night so I can sleep :)
9) Dream house would be?
I love our house. It’s the perfect size for me, my husband and our fur-baby. I wouldn’t want anything bigger...that’s just more to clean! Although I would like a house with a slide instead of stairs because that would be just plain fun.
10) Do you play well with others?
I suppose so. Depends what we’re playing. Anyone who’s ever been my partner in Pictionary would probably disagree with that though...
11) Most creative project you did in 2012?
Starting this blog! I started making a paperbag album last spring of our China trip that is looking really awesome, but I have yet to finish it, so I don’t think it counts.
