Scrapbooking is one of my all-time favorite hobbies (along with cake-decorating, running, playing sports, reading, dancing… ok, so I guess I have a lot of all-time favorite activities).
Having done quite a few of these “Tag” posts (I never tire of ‘em—I LOVE being tagged!), I thought I’d be a little different this time. So here are Five Facts about Me, scrapbook-style!
I was born in England, and have also lived in China, Philadelphia, Japan, The Philippines, and Texas…
…but my favorite place in the world is New York City (with Italy and Thailand coming in as close seconds).
As far as my current home state goes, Austin’s pretty darn cool.
I’m an animal-lover (kind of stating the obvious, since I’m a vegan).
These pages are of a visit to the amazing Catskill Animal Sanctuary in Saugerties, New York. If you’re ever in the area, don’t miss the chance to go.
I enjoy being outdoors as much as possible. There’s something peaceful and relaxing about being in nature and observing its splendor.
Warm, sunny days make for one super-happy CCK…
…but I don’t discriminate against rainy days– nothing’s more fun than going for a walk or run in the rain!
My favorite memory is of being surprised at my 16th birthday. I was lucky enough to get two parties that year (one in China and one in Texas), and one of the parties was a surprise party, with maybe 70 people showing up! (In the category of favorite memories, Senior Prom also ranks right up there.)
P.S. The cake in the picture is Moosewood’s incredibly delicious vegan chocolate cake, with Moosewood’s chocolate-peanut butter frosting.
My hands have to constantly stay in motion or they get bored (kinda how the rest of me works as well). Sometimes I draw and do lettering for a purpose, such as with the bear and the title on the page below… but just as often, I like to doodle for no reason– on everything. (I even doodle on my exams, because it helps me think!) Drawing, doodling, lettering, Origami, card-making, writing, typing… the hands are always busy.
