Here are my answers to the hop questions:
1. What am I working on now?
Today I am making samples for an upcoming class! Lots of cute Lawn Fawn goodies, some adorable SRM doilies, and Copic markers are currently all over my desk! I have one more card to go and then I can work on my design team stuff- I have cards due for Newton's Nook, SRM, and the Waffle Flower Challenge soon! I also have a fun card planned in my head that was inspired by last week's Project Runway episode :) Hopefully I can time to make it before Thursday, too!
2. How does my work differ from others in my genre?
Well... I feel like I am a unique card maker but I wouldn't say I differ from other card makers- we are all talented, detail oriented crafters who love color, pattern, and stamps, right? :)
3. Why do I create what I do?
For me it's all about fun and smiling! I love smiling! Hee! Patterned paper and cute stamps make me smile big time!
4. How does my creative process work?
I usually think about things for awhile before I start my project. I often get my best ideas in the shower :) I like to work on a clean surface so I try to clean up my last project before starting a new one. When I start, I gather things that I think I'll use and spread them over my oversized table. If I don't have an idea planned already, one usually springs up from the stamps or embellishments I've chosen to go with them!
I'm going to pass on the nomination to these two creative ladies:
I've known Crafty Math Chick for a few years through Newton's Nook Designs. She is so sweet and always makes the cutest things for the release! My favorite are her 3-d items! Her candy apple treat from September was adorable!!
Donna and I have been stamping together locally for years! She has a great style- she creates pretty clean and simple cards and the most amazing cigar boxes! She's always fun to hang out with :)
I hope you've enjoyed the hop! It was fun answering the questions- I wish I could have included a messy shot of my table but well, you know... I gotta keep these cards under wraps for a few more days! :) Thanks for stopping by today!!
