I am so excited to be part of this weeks blog hop! Thank you so much Amy Bollman for nominating me. I have been out of the stamping loop for a bit lately. Busy working and taking care of the kiddos, but I have been creating a few things out of the box for me they are much more sweet and simple then I usually do. Here a few of the projects I have been working on for the holidays...
I love everything chalkboard, always have. So when Stampin' Up! came up with this adorable chalkboard banner a bought a bunch. I love the simplicity of this banner and the pop of color these pom-pons add!
Who doesn't love mason jars, I swear I have a slight problem when it comes to "collecting" jars. I found this adorable vintage style firetruck and had to make up a cute little jar.
To add to my simple decor this year I decided to sick with the rustic feel. I stenciled a few of these cute plaques and made up this star to sit on my buffet.
As part of the blog hop I need to answer a few questions!
1. What are you working on?
This time of year I tend to slow down on the creating. I usually get so busy with work around thanksgiving time that I am burnt out in december. So I take some time to hang out with my family. I do however have a Christmas party for my downline and club members on Friday. So currently I am working on a few things for them to make there.
2. How does your work differ from others in your genre?
I feel I have a wide range in my style. And it definalty changes and grows with the ways styles change. I love trends and since I work in the design world, they tend to flow into my crafts as well. I don't know if I would say my style is different, as much as I would say it is eclectic.
3. Why do you create what you do?
There are a few reasons I create. First one is for me, I love it, it makes me happy and keeps me sane...as long as I have time to do it. The other reason is to share with others. I enjoy so much when people who think they aren't creative come to a class and realize they are.
4. How does your creative process work?
It's a bit messy...literally. I have to have a clean spot to start, so I usually end up cleaning up my entire craft room first. I get distracted easily, so having a messy space doesn't work for me. I turn on TV and shut the door! By the end of my project you would think a tornado or two had come through here!
I am going to nominate:
This is my mom, she is a loving and caring and amazing mother and grandmother. She is also very creative! Although our styles are very different, she is a clean and simple girl. Can't wait to see what she post on the 15th!
