Girl Between The Lines

I am really excited to be linking up with one of my long time favourite bloggers Hayley, and one of my recently discovered bloggers, Lauren for the first week of The Girl Between The Lines link up! I don't know about everyone else but I love reading about people. I enjoy reading about bloggers' daily adventures too, but my favourite posts are usually ones that are about the person behind the blog. Today's prompt is to share a picture of yourself along with three things that you love about yourself.

(I'll preface this by saying I hate pictures of myself, so much that I almost skipped out on participating today. And since I lost my hard drive a few weeks ago I don't have any pictures on my laptop I had to resort re-posting a photo I've shared before.)

Three Things I Love About Myself

I have a really good memory! I remember little details about people without much effort and sometimes I have to hold back on making reference to these details because I'm scared people will think I'm a total creeper. I promise I don't spend hours stalking Facebook and blog posts I just have a weird ability to remember that one time six months ago when you mentioned your favourite cartoon character for a week when you were three. I love that I'm able to remember the details and use them to make people happy. 

I'm a really good gift giver! This one pairs nicely with the first one, being about to remember little details about people means I am a pretty awesome gift giver. I will go to great lengths to track down a specific item I'm looking for and if I can't find it I'll get creative and make it myself! I love that I'm able to show love by putting thought and creativity into gifts for others. 

I'm creative! I enjoy writing, doodling, scrapbooking, crafting, decorating, ect. Anything where I can experiment with colours, textures and just lose myself in what I'm creating. I know there are people who hate the idea of writing for pleasure or sitting down for hours with piles of papers and photos to create something from nothing, but I am the complete opposite. I love that I'm able to express myself so easily. 


  1. Any time I buy a gift, I wonder if the person will actually like it!! I wish I was an awesome gift-giver like you! Oh, and I suck at al things artistic, haha. Thanks for linking up, girl! We would have missed you if you had skipped out on us! :)

  2. I am the same way with remembering little details! Sure I will stalk you when I first add you as a friend or follow your blog, but then I just remember stuff about you forever.

  3. Hooray for creativity! I think the world would be a very boring place if we did not have the drive to create. Happy to have "met" you through your post today! Can't wait to see what the following weeks have in store :)


  4. I'm glad you participated, I enjoyed learning more about you!! I need your memory... I only remember random things!

  5. I love gifting too, isn't it a thrill knowing that you just nailed a gift! : )

  6. I'm trying not to be jealous of you great memory that leads to awesome gift-giving!! Memory is not one of my strong points, so I think that's AWESOME!! :) Thanks for linking up, Donna!!

  7. I love this list! You have some great qualities, girl! I'm glad this link-up pointed me toward your blog. It seems like we have a lot in common :) Your gift-giving skills should come in handy this month!
