1) How long have you been crafting?

Since 1995.

2) Why did you start crafting?

Right after I was married, I created a scrapbook for our wedding. Then I started dabbling in other paper crafts. Crafting makes me happy!

3) How long have you been on the Fiskars® Design Team?

I am new (as of July 2012)! This is a new, creative adventure for me.

4) What are your favorite craft activities?

My first love will always be scrapbooking. But I love making cards, crafting with my kids, and I enjoy creating mixed-media projects.

5) How do you define your crafting style/aesthetic?

My style is pretty simple. I like to craft quick, and I try to be adventurous with new techniques. If I am scrapbooking, my photos and writing are important. There is always a little paint, ink, & glitter in the mix.

6) What is your favorite time of day to craft?

I love to craft any chance I get. My most favorite time is late into the night.

7) What motivates/inspires you?

I am inspired by creative friends, amazing graphic design, and a great photo. I am motivated by red vines licorice & sour patch kids.

8) If you could only have one Fiskars® tool, what would it be and why?

My 12" portable trimmer. I have updated it, yet have used a Fiskars trimmer since the beginning!
