Creative Blog Tour




I am honored to be apart of the Creative Blog Tour!  I was invited by Kelly Janes, who is one of my CTMH Damask Divas sisters.  It's so cool to be able to get to know talented, crafty people from all over the USA through blogging.  Especially when I have no local crafty friends!

1. What am I working on?


Ha, what am I not working on!  I have several things in the works.  I'm making Christmas cards and tags...Fall cards, and still have tons of new stamps to play with~now that my kids are back in school.  I am SO excited the new Cricut Artfully Sent that will arrive at my house in two days!  I'm trying to enter more challenges, {they really help me focused} otherwise I tend to just keep "playing".  Here is a peek at I tag I just made, and my messy desk!  ;)






2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?

 
There is a word I never use, lol!  I guess I lean more towards clean and simple projects, but I can't stop adding goodies!  I have to add some type of glitter or sparkly item...or else what ever I'm working just feels naked!  I don't like to use matchy-matchy sets.   I love to make my own embellishments.  I try to create things a different way from what you what everyone else would normally think of.  When I look at a stamp set, I always try to think of what else I can do with it.  I am a bit of a perfectionist, so I can easily use a whole school day to complete a card~Yeah, I'm crazy like that!  Here is a recent example, I stamped and embossed paper for the tree trunk...and colored all the accessories, and topped it all with my glitter pen.  I probable go a little to far, but I like it. 





3. Why do I write/create what I do?


I am very creative, and I love to create things.  My craft room is my happy place.  I joined Close to my Heart for the discount, and I love sharing my favorite products that I think all papercrafters will love.  Because sharing is really caring to me!  I started my blog about two years ago, so I could start participating in our team Blog Hops.  I was really just a collector/hoarder of supplies before that.  I had only made a few cards and just enjoyed scrapbooking.  The blog hops have a deadline, it really helps me keep focused and complete projects.  Sad but true, I would often not cut into my pretty paper for fear I would think of a"better idea" later~perfectionist thinking, lol!  But, I'm so happy I stepped out of my comfort zone.  I've made some great friends and love getting to know people who are as excited about new crafty products as I am!
   

4. How does your writing/creating process work?

 
I usually start with a stamp set I want to use or photo, and build from there.  I have a lot of products I love, and the hard part for me is not using them all.  I try to think of some way to use the products that are a little different then everyone would think of right away.  That is what is most time consuming for me.  Once I get an idea I love, there is no stopping me!



Here is my nomination~They will be sharing more about themselves next Monday, September 22nd on her blog.  Make sure to stop by!
