1) How long have you been crafting?

I've been crafting ever since I was little ... I worked on a lot of fun art projects as a kid. After college, I picked up scrapbooking as a full-time hobby.

2) Why did you start crafting?

I always loved art and doing creative projects. My neighbor introduced me to scrapbooking when I was in high school and I was instantly hooked.

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

Since January of 2007.

4) What are your favorite craft activities?

Scrapbooking is definitely my first love, but I love doing mini albums and making cards.

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

I think that my style represents my personality ... lots of happy, bright colors with simple embellishments and clean lines.

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

Late at night ... I'm a night owl.

7) What motivates/inspires you?

I love being out in the city! It feeds me energy and provides me with endless inspiration for designs, color combinations and new projects.

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

My paper trimmer. Fiskars makes the best paper trimmers and I’d be lost without mine.
