10 Things You Didn't Know About Cari Locken




#1 I hate flying ... or anything to do with moving around in the air. I used to do it all the time when I was in University but in 1999 after my brother’s wedding, there was some really bad turbulence and well … my air motion sickness bag became quite full! (I know … gross!!)

#2 When I was around 4 years old I decided that after watching my dad do this I figured I could too. I wanted to shave my face just like he did. I took his shaving razor and proceeded to shave … however being a novice I didn’t do that well and cut off a small piece on the side of my nose!


#3 I have my Masters in Music (Piano Performance) … I started playing piano when I was 4 years old and loved it! There’s just something about my fingers moving across those black & white keys that calms my spirit.

#4 I’ve always loved doing crafts & being creative. My mom taught me to knit and one summer I made myself 3 sweaters. I used to enjoy going to art stores with my dad when I was younger and looking at all the different colored pens and the various shades of paper. So it’s no wonder that I absolutely LOVE scrapbooking!

#5 I hate making beds & putting away clean laundry ... I don’t mind taking the sheets off and doing the laundry but the thought of having to make the bed afterwards and put away all that laundry .. ugh!


#6 I hate the smell of parmesan cheese (the stuff that you sprinkle on spahetti – can’t stand it. And yet, I don’t mind the fresh stuff and the taste doesn’t bother me … it’s just that other stuff that is so nasty smelling!

#7 I don’t have a lot of patience … especially after I’ve spent an entire day cleaning the house and my kids come home promptly to mess it up! Seeing those crumbs on the floor drives me bonkers!

#8 Pizza is my favorite food. It’s a family favorite too as we make homemade pizza every Friday night!


#9 I love the color blue. Always have (but not so much royal blue – I like the softer, lighter shades). Turquoise (which to me is a shade of blue) is my ultimate favorite color right now! Love it!

#10 I’ve had 3 c-sections. Finding out in the delivery room with my oldest child that I would require a cesarean was a bit disappointing and very scary. My other 2 children were delivered the same way.

I would love it if you would stop by my blog and check out why I was selected to be part of the Design Team for Imaginisce. I’d also love it if you would follow me on my blog and come back to the Imaginisce blog often to see what we’re working on.

I totally agree with you about the beds and laundry. My idea of making the bed is, at some point during the day, to straighten the sheets and blankets so they're not tangled when I crawl into bed at night. Blue is also my favourite colour except I like the deeper shades.

Kim. said...

Nice to get to know you and have you on the design team again this year. Great layouts, especially love the last one.
Kim xXx
