Welcome to my blog. I would like to create a place where I can share my love of crafts with you. I started paper crafting in August of 2011. I just had my one year anniversary. I love making cards, doing scrapbook pages, creating flowers, quilling and many other crafts. I found out about greeting cards when watching a Stamp TV video a few months later. I am hooked on card making now. Love everything about it. I hope that you will join me in my love of crafts.

Here are the questions Kathy had for me.
Why and when did you begin crafting? I started crafting in August of 2011. I started because I wanted to create scrap books for my children of their childhoods. Then that Christmas I wanted to send cards out to my family, but after seeing how expensive it was I decided to make them myself.
What type of a crafter are you: clean & simple,shabby chic, vintage, grunge, mixed media, etc?  I love vintage. I love making things look old and antiqued. I also love mixed media and grunge. I have so much fun adding all kinds of things to my cards and artwork. Like beads and metals. 
What is your favorite time of the day to craft? I am a night owl. Sometimes I have to make myself go to bed. I could stay up all night crafting and working in my craftroom. 
Whats your favorite crafting tools? My most favorite tool would be inks. I love using inks on everything. I also love my Copic markers. As far as an actual tool I would have to say my Grand Calibur and my Cuttlebug.
Do you work primarily from sketches or your own imagination? I work mostly from imagination. I will set and look at the stamp or image I am going to use and just think about it until I decide what I am going to do. I do gather inspiration from others also.
What is your favorite beverage? Sprite Zero!! I do enjoy a good cup of coffee too. 
Name 5 things on your desktop right now? That is a easy one LOL!! I have about 25 things on it right now: Memento inks, scissors, designer papers, stamps, and of course glue.
Who are some of your crafting heroes? Tim Holtz, Heartfelt Creations, Gina K. Designs, She was the first person I watched make a card and use Copic Markers. 
Whats your biggest crafting blooper? LOL!! Well the biggest one I made I guess would be a card I made one day I got all finished with and went to open it and I had made it upside down. Needless to say it was back to ground zero after that.
What is your favorite crafting technique? I have two, well many, but my two favorites would be making backgrounds and distressing with inks.
What do you do when you are not in the craftroom? Hmmm, good question! I live, love, and laugh with my family. Which is my greatest joy of all. 
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will join me in my journey with crafts.
