CREATIVE BLOGGER AWARD

I am very honored to be nominated for Creative Blogger from the very inspirational lady.....Nicole Robinson! You can find so much more than inspiration on Nicole's blog...its filled with skills, talent and beauty, take some extra time and check her out. 

The Creative Blogger Award entitles you to join a group of talented people and share your personal thoughts and secrets on your creative endeavors and hopefully you will find some inspiration along the way. So now onto the questions.

What am I currently working on?

Well....the questions should be "what am I not working on?".... you know exactly what I'm talking about, lol!  I am so excited to be apart of Karen Morris' Awesome Artist Swap....and I'm under the gun to get my mini swap cards done and in the mail by December 17th...or was it the 15th..yikes....
 I chose the Heartstrings paper line by Close To My Heart...that's going live to all on December 1st ...here's a sneak peek of just a few of the items available in the Seasonal Expressions.
 Now...I can't preview my swap cards...but I can give you a tiny glimpse...
I'm also scrambling to get my Christmas cards done before the 1st!
 I just fell in love with these super cute Penny Black and Stampendouse elf stamps
 and then.....I'm about to start working on some ornaments and gift tags for...hopefully this year's Christmas...or maybe next....it will probably be next, lol.
This kit is from Papertrey Ink....

I love what Melissa Phillips did with the Tinsel & Tags Set...she's one of my favorite designers for Papertrey.....check out here blog here.

What is my signature style?

Hummmm..... It would have to be layering things up...the more layers the better...I say.....and don't forget the bling...you can never have too much glitter or embellishments in my book.

How do I become inspired and stay inspired?

 I get most of my best ideas when I lay down to sleep at night....I'm very slow when creating...its a process...work a little, then take a break.  I can't fall asleep right-a-way, so my mind starts working...instead of thinking about my day, work, and all that other stuff...fun and fantastic ideas pop into my head on how to finish that started project, a special feature for a new one...or some new technique I'd like to try...you never know what will happen.  That's what I really love about this hobby....its always a surprise when you see the end result.

How does my creative process work?

 What process...When I sit down to start a project, I start by finding one element that I like...a stamp set image....an embellishment...a paper line...or a found object.  I start from there.... no rhyme or reason.  Really!  Happy little accidents are the best!  I have never been a planner...one of those artists that lay everything out, and develop their projects in their mind or on a computer...I just jump in feet first and whatever happens, happens....Its therapy...let loose, no restrictions, no rules...just PLAY...let that inner child out!

So know that you know a little bit about my creative process, I would love to hear about you!  So, please don’t hesitate to share your favorite styles and inspiration in the comment section.



Now it’s time for me to select a couple of great crafters to receive a Creative Blogger Award.
I am pleased to announce Bren Yule  and Pamela O'Connor
These ladies have inspired me so much through the years!
