I was nominated for a Liebster award!

Hello Friends,

I was nominated by Kate from the I Live, I Love, I craft, I am me... blog! I love getting nominated for these awards and I think it is a great way for us bloggers to network and get to know one another better.  So here goes...

First 11 facts about me:  

1.  I am finnish, Scottish and German.
2.  I was born in Montreal, Quebec 
3.   My craft of choice is knitting as you can probably tell from my blog 
4. I love sushi and Japanese, thai foods 
5.  I love Netflix, I am always watching new shows and movies on there.  
6.  I am a chocoholic! I love chocolate, I think I have a bit of chocolate everyday.  
7.  I love to be cozy covered in blankets, under my knitting, it’s probably a big reason why I knit!  
8.  I love holidays and being surrounded by family during this time.  My favorite holiday is Christmas! I usually start celebrating at the beginning of November.  
9.  I am going back to school in the fall to earn my Bachelor of Arts degree! I am so excited!  
10.  I am so scared of spiders...will that fear ever go away? I get so squeamish when I have to kill one
11.  I love looking at quoted photos on Pinterest when I have time to browse through.  They are so inspirational and uplifting!

To answer Kate’s questions:

1.                  I love hearing the sound of the rain, coming from Africa it is seen as a gift, how do you feel about the rain?
I like listening to the sound of rain too.  I especially love those days when I can sit with a book by the window and read while hearing the pitter-patter of rain hitting the window.

     2.                  Ever done something at school that at the time seemed really cool but now - you've realised 'how silly' it was?
I think that a lot of what we do in school is silly when we look back, arguments, drama,  it’s all because we are still young and trying to figure ourselves out.   I think we would do it differently if we went back as adults.  Nothing in particular stands out for me :P 

            3.                  Got any tattoos and/or piercings? Care to share/reveal??
I have some piercings.... on my ears! Not uncommon I know.

4.                  What is on your knitting needles or crochet hook at the moment?
I have the second orange sock on my needles now.  I just learned the basics of learning how to knit socks and I am really enjoying it so far!

5.                  When I need a little 'me time' I put on the fairy lights, light some incense and reach for my crafting - what do you do?
I usually like to knit and watch a movie or a show on Netflix to have the downtime to just relax.

6.                  What is the perfect film to take your best friend to see? (Can be current or vintage) and why that particular one?
I think the “Other Woman” because it speaks a lot to girls coming together to support one another.  There are a lot of good messages to friendship in that film.

7.                  Do you have a favourite colour/s above all others? 
I really like purple it is such a pretty color.  I like the color purple in flowers and in nature.  I haven't knitted much with the color purple which is now surprising me! I will be knitting some purple socks soon :)

8.                  Does that colour dominate your wardrobe?
Not really, I have a few pieces I think black and red might dominate my wardrobe but that is for work related reasons.

9.                  What bit of technology could NOT do with out?
I don’t think I could go without my phone and my laptop for very long.  I bring my phone with me everywhere as I am sure most people do.  I love my laptop because I need it for blogging and I have stored all my photos on my laptop.  I think I could go with out TV for awhile though now with Netflix and you can view a lot online.
10.              Is there something that wish you could perfect or even attempt? For me it is knitting socks - something I will day.
I would love to attempt to knit a sweater! I have wanted to for some time now but I am too chicken.  I know I have to just set some time aside and start.  Good luck with the sock knitting! I just knitted one sock and it wasn’t so bad J

11.              If you could travel to anywhere in the world for a picnic with your most favourite person, where would it be and what would be in your picnic basket - go on the world is your oyster!
I have said before in one of these question and answer Liebster award questionnaires that I would love to go to Paris with my boyfriend.  We could have a picnic by the Eiffel tower! My boyfriend is like my best friend I think that going anywhere with him would be the most enjoyable experience.  We could have French bread and wine at our picnic!
