1) How long have you been crafting?

I’ve been crafting as long as I can remember!

2) Why did you start crafting?

My mom was always doing something creative, maybe not so much crafting, but I always had the desire to make things.

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

From June of 2007 through January 2011.

4) What are your favorite craft activities?

I love scrapbooking the most with mixed media projects/home décor following close behind.

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

I use the word “homespun” a lot when describing my crafting style and preference. I am always drawn to things that look handmade. I’m not about perfection in art.

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

In the evening, when dinner is done and things quiet down. I need lots of time and peace to get creative. I am not good about taking a few minutes here or there to create. I love to get into the process, from a thought or idea to its completion.

7) What motivates/inspires you?

Everything around me inspires me. I know that sound cliché, but it's truer than true for me.

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

My Pinking Scissors. It’s my favorite.
