1. How long have you been crafting?

I have been crafting and creating for as long as I can remember. I grew up with very creative parents and always had lots of creative supplies at my disposal.

2. Why did you start crafting?

It has always just seemed like a natural thing to me. I can't imagine not crafting or being creative in some way.

3. How long have you been on the Fiskars design team?

Since May 2011

4. What are your favorite craft activities?

Papercrafts, Fabric crafts, and ribbonwork.

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

I love distressed, shabby, vintage, and chippy; florals and romantic styles.

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

Sun up until sun down!

7. What motivates/inspires you?

I am very inspired by products! I love the inspiration of a great color combination or an great pattern on a piece of fabric or patterned paper. I often pick the supplies first and the project second.

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

I have a combination that I can't work with out: the large 24 inch x 36 inch cutting mat, a 3 inch x 18 inch acrylic ruler, and the Soft Grip Detail Knife for paper crafts or a rotary cutter for fabric crafts. I keep the large mat on my work table at all times so that I can cut whatever materials I am using right where I work.
