CRAFT MEME!!!!

I think everyone here has seen at least one "meme" (personal questionnaire) in an e-mail or on a social networking site like MySpace or FaceBook. Unfortunately, I've never been able to find a craft meme that had more than 10 questions.

I decided to create a good one (with the help of my friend Brook G.) for everyone to use however they wish. I encourage everyone to copy this meme into a reply (or on your profile) and add your answers so we can learn about you and your crafting! Personally, I'll be using it on my new craft blog and on here in this thread at a later date. With all of that being said, here is Lisa H.'s & Brook G.'s Craft Meme:

Blue, purple and green • What are your favorite themes, schemes, genres, or patterns? I prefer simple patterns, I'm not a fan of intricate little patterns because there's too much going on. Not a big fan of floral prints either. As for themes, I like animals and nature. • What is your favorite craft of all time? Umm probably cross stitch, because it was the first craft I actually did where I was really really pleased with my results. And jewellery making, but I'm fairly new to that • What are your favorite things to make? Jewellery. • What are your favorite craft supplies? Beadsssss! • What craft tools do you use most frequently? My jewellery making tools • What are your favorite animals? Pandas, giraffes, zebras, lemurs... too many! • What are your favorite authors/books? Malorie Blackman, Chuck Palahniuk • What are your five favorite things (not necessarily craft related)? In no particular order: animals, sweets, my phone, beads and my boyfriend (I know he's not just a "thing", but he's my favourite person lol) DISLIKES • What craft fears or avoidances do you have? I don't think I've come across anything I'm scared of. That being said, I don't really do many "dangerous" crafts haha. I'd love to try making lampwork beads, but I'd be scared I'd singe my eyebrows or my hair with the blowtorch or something haha. • What colors and/or color combos do you hate? I dunno really, anything that clashes • Are there any styles you dislike? Don't think so. PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE • Describe the first project you made as a child. I haven't a clue haha, I spent most of my time crafting as a child. There's a photo of me from when I was in the local paper ages 16 months, and I was painting. • What was your favorite pastime crafting project? I did a lot of cross stitch, I liked seeing the picture gradually take shape as you did more and more stitches. • What is the most interesting/unique thing you’ve ever crafted?

Dunno really, I'm just a "go with the flow" kind of person so I don't really plan ahead and I do whatever I feel like at the time lol SHOPPING • Do you keep a cache of supplies you’re likely to use or do you buy exactly what you need for each project? I hoarde everything, it's ridiculous. I need some stash-busting projects! • Do you make a list before going into a craft store? If I'm going to somewhere huge like Hobbycraft, yeah. I still end up getting distracted and buying things that aren't on my list though • Have you ever come out of a craft store having bought only the things you planned to buy? See above lol, so the answer's no Tongue • What craft stores do you frequent (online or otherwise)? Tatters, Super Loop, Sew Simple and Bead Time (all small local shops), and Hobbycraft MISCELLANEOUS • Do you have a relative who has crafted something that’s considered a family (or personal) treasure? I used to have a big clown that my nan knitted, but he got tatty so I had to throw him away :'( • Do your friends and family support and encourage your crafting? My mum does to some extent, even though she thinks I'm a bit silly for spending my money on it, my boyfriend thinks its cool and asks me to teach him things, and my mother-in-law (well, not technically, she's my boyfriend's mum lol) works in a charity shop so she scores me jewellery they can' sell so I can reuse the beads. • Do you admit to “crafting", or do you call it something else, like “DIY”? I just call it "crafting" or "making stuff" (oh I'm so eloquent Tongue) • Do you have any advice for aspiring crafters? If you see something expensive that you want in a shop, always think if you can make your own first. It's cheaper, more fun, and you can customise it to make it unique and one-of-a-kind • List everything you’ve tried from a crafting perspective. Jewellery making, customising clothes, cross stitch, embroidery, plush making, knitting, scrapbooking, card making... the list goes on. • Do you craft in short bursts or long sessions? I never really get time for long sessions, so usually short bursts Happy • How do you beat the blahs and get inspired and motivated again? Have a look round on the internet, find something and think "oooh, I like that", then go and make it/something inspired by it • Have you ever been injured while crafting? Nothing major. I've stabbed myself with pins countless times and I nearly had a piece of sewing maching needle fly off and hit me in the face (luckily it stayed attached to the thread in the machine, so I was saved!) • If you had a 5-minute shopping spree in your craft supply store, how would you plan your attack? Grab a basket trolley, head for the jewellery making aisle, throw as many beads and findings in as possible, then grab any other stuff I'm ever likely to need ot stuff that I like the look of... it'll all come in handy one day! • If you could afford to start any crafting hobby, what would it be? Lampwork bead making • If you could instantly gain a crafting ability what would it be? What would you make and for whom? See above, and I would make beads obv. and then sell them in my future online shop. • You’re trapped in Bill Murray’s Groundhog Day. What crafting skill would you refuse to learn despite having infinite time to learn it? I don't think there are any. Probably scrapbooking, even though that's not really a skill. I found it quite dull and expensive for what it is.

• Do you have any advice for aspiring crafters? start with set patterns, and once you feel comfortable move up from there.
• List everything you’ve tried from a crafting perspective. knitting, crochet, sewing, spinning yarn, pottery, painting, fimo, necklace making, model making (architectural models..does that count?)
• Do you craft in short bursts or long sessions? both, depends on the mood.
• How do you beat the blahs and get inspired and motivated again? surf through projects or blogs and find things that inspire me.

• If you had a 5-minute shopping spree in your craft supply store, how would you plan your attack? grab whatever interests me.
• If you could afford to start any crafting hobby, what would it be? hmm...glass blowing I think that would be ultra cool to learn.
• If you could instantly gain a crafting ability what would it be? What would you make and for whom? that is a tough one...probably furniture making... it would make selling my own furniture designs a lot easier.
• You’re trapped in Bill Murray’s Groundhog Day. What crafting skill would you refuse to learn despite having infinite time to learn it? probably scrapbooking, I agree with Izzy on its expense...my mom really enjoys it though.
