The meaning of Liebster is German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind. pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. I will begin by sharing the rules:

Here are my 10 random facts about myself:

2. I’ve always been creative, from pre-school with finger-painting to middle/high school taking art classes. No wonder I chose scrapbooking as a hobby! 🙂
3. I met my husband while taking computer courses at the local community college in 2000.

8. I have five friends who live in the area and we try to get together every 3-4 months to scrap our hearts out!
9. I get bored easily. I can fall asleep quite quickly if I read a slow book or watch a very slow-pace movie/tv show. If it doesn’t grab me in 10 minutes, I’m not into it.
