Hello all!

Wow, I've been so honored to have been nominated by two lovely ladies: Mary (We Can Make Anything) and RaChil (The Cwafty Blog) for the Liebster Award!

The blogging community is just so sweet and the Liebster Award is to and from blogs as a means for bloggers to get to know each other, collaborate, discover new blogs! Basically nominees post 11 facts, answer 11 questions from their nominators, and create 11 questions to nominate 11 other blogs. So without further ado, here we go!

11 Facts About Cafe Craftea

1. I sleep with my eyes half open. Freaky, I know!
2. I'm not ticklish (anymore)! I used to be, but I somehow developed an immunity to it.
3. I speak ~3ish languages other than English: Cantonese, Mandarin, and conversational Spanish.
4. I'm a dessert fanatic. Say cheesecake, waffles, donuts..I'm there! Imagine what happens when I go to dessert buffets...
5. I listen to a lot of Korean pop (K-pop). My favorite artists/bands are Dalmatian, Phantom, Big Bang, and the Brown Eyed Girls.
6. I prefer Summer to Winter! Hot weather is the best.
7. I'm an extremely frugal spender but I love to shop! I love finding bargains :)
8. I'm terrible at sports...and anything involving general hand-eye coordination.
9. I've got 4 more years of (fairly expensive) schooling to go :(

11. I like to bake but I hardly ever eat my own creations :/

The Cwafty Blog's Questions
1. What's your favorite color combination? 
Hmm, this is hard. I'd have to say black + gold is always a classic!

2. If you could have any animal in the world for a pet what would it be? 
I haven't really had any pets other than bunnies and fish. I suppose any animal would be fine to me as long as it's tame and doesn't poop or pee :P

3. Coffee or Tea? How do you take it? 
I don't like the taste of actual coffee but I love coffee-flavored things (odd, I know). I like slightly sweetened fruity teas!

4. Can you do a really good fake accent? 
Nope, I'm terrible. 

5. Whats the first thing you ever remember making? 
A super flimsy crossbody "purse" when i was 7. Broke on first use!

6. What made you want to start blogging? 
I've always talked about wanting to start a blog so I went ahead and finally did it!

7. Favorite artistic/crafty medium to work with? 
Chain, wire, and beads!

My Nominations (to be updated, keep checking back!)


  1. Ahh! Let me know when you build a teeny teepee! It would totally not be weird, it would be awesome.

    1. If I do, it'll definitely be on the blog :)

  2. One of my first sewing projects was a purse which also broke the first time I tried to use it. I was so disappointed, I had wasted good fabric in my opinion. Also I loved making Teepees as a kid! That's gonna be a super fun project!

    1. Eep, I feel your pain! Just b/c we're not kids anymore doesn't mean we still can't make teepees though ;)
