I’ve have our scoop on Wednesday this week because I was asked to participate in a neat little hop today! I was chosen by Kelli, who is one of my favorite crafty friends. She makes such adorable, bright cards and I just absolutely love her sense of style & color selection. I was honored to be chosen by her. Thanks, Kelli! Please be sure to check out Kelli’s beautiful work by clicking on her name above.
The Creative Bloggers Hop is a continuous hop every Monday. An invited blogger answers some questions and then nominates/invites three other inspirational bloggers to participate in the hop the following Monday.
Now to answer a few questions. . .
1. What am I working on at the moment?
I’m beginning to work on some baby themed thank you cards because we’ve already received a couple of gifts & I really want to make sure I tell everyone how thankful I am for those. I’m not very far on the thank you cards yet. I’ve also been working to try and catch up on Project Life 2014. I’m many many weeks behind since getting pregnant lol. You can find all my Project Live 2014 process videos over on Youtube here.
2. How does my work differ from others in my genre?
I think I have a no fuss, anyone-can-do-it approach to crafting. I feel like crafting should be about having fun & letting yourself explore creatively. I encourage others to just try things out & I also like to keep things simple, rather than super fussy or over the top. I think all this comes out in my relatively simple & easy style that I use for my projects. I try to show that anyone can make spectacular projects that they can be proud of.
3. Why do I craft what I do?
I like to make scrapbook layouts to preserve & share my family’s memories. I scrapbook rather than use photo albums because I love for things to look pretty & I like to use pretty paper and stamps 🙂 I like to make cards because receiving a handmade card is something very special & I really enjoy making them! Paper crafting is my stress relief & my creative outlet. I love being able to say “I made that!”
4. How does my creative process work?
This is a hard one! I don’t really have a set “process”. I’m generally always thinking in terms of paper crafting. I think about new project ideas constantly, from the time I wakeup in the morning to the time I go to bed. I seem to always have ideas floating around in my head. When I sit down to make a project, generally I have an idea in my head that I want to try out, but it something goes in a direction I don’t expect, which is always fun!
And now I’m supposed to nominate 3 people that inspire me to answer the questions. The problem was, I couldn’t narrow it down to just 3 inspiring crafters! SO I am nominating YOU! If you are a crafty blogger reading this, YOU are nominated to participate. I get so much inspiration from everyone & I’d love to hear your answers to the questions above. Please have a blog post next Monday for the Creative Bloggers Hop. And don’t forget to drop back by here and leave me a link so I can check out your answers!
That’s it for today. Happy crafting & have a happy start to your week!!
