Mini Monday for Lost Mitten

Meet Lauren. She is one of our fabulous EtsyBloggers from Canada.

In her own words from her website lost this busy gamer, knitter, musician, vegetarian and crafter lets you know who she is.
My name is Lauren and I create everything at Lost Mitten out of my home in Ontario, Canada. I love crafting and creating new items for myself, my fiance, Paul, and for my online shop. I am a huge video game addict; I have loved games ever since my family got our very first computer when I was four years old, and our first Nintendo Entertainment System when I was six. In my creations, I have combined this love for video games and crafting in many of the items that I make, including my pixelated Perler Bead Nintendo crafts.

I also love to knit - knitting is my favorite way to relax and unwind at the end of a busy day. I like to knit all sorts of things for myself and Paul, including sweaters, bags, hats, socks, and gloves. You will find some of my knitware up for sale in my shop. I also love to make things out of Japanese Chiyogami paper and any kind of kawaii (cute) note paper or fabric from Japan that I can get my hands on!

Aside from crafting, I love music - I have played the piano since I was four years old. I also play the guitar, bass, and the clarinet. I have been a vegetarian all of my life, I love animals (especially cats!), and I am an advocate for animal rights. I love to travel as much as possible - even though I have only travelled throughout Canada, the U.S., and many parts of the Caribbean, I hope to travel all over the world someday! I also love to work out at the gym, especially participating in the yoga classes.
