I am a Designer, Author, TV Host. I sleep with a loaded glue gun and I'm not afraid to pull out my crayons in public. I'm usually up in the sky on the way to a crafty gig. My favorite saying is "Get your hands dirty and turn the mundane into the insane!" Come join me on a creative journey and make sure to bring the mixers!
Type of art you are involved in: General Crafter with a special love for paper and fabric.
Location: New York Angeles
1. How do you use Fiskars Orange-Handled scissors in your creations?
I don't make a cut on anything without my Fiskars scissors. They are my constant creative companion and I'd be lost without them.
2. What is your best scissors advice?
Place a large ribbon around your scissors so that you can wear them around your neck. This way, you always know where they are when you're working. Try not to hug anyone while you're wearing them.
3. Describe your creative style in three words or less.
Colorful hipcycled insanity
4. What is your favorite pair of Fiskars scissors? Why?
My rare scalloped pinking shears! Most people think they are a myth, but every once in a while I pull them out just to see the envy in my fellow crafters. It's mean, but I enjoy it very much.
5. Tell us a funny scissors story.
All I can tell you is that if you think you can trim your own hair after 3 glasses of wine, you're WRONG! We called it the ASYMMETRICAL HAIR-DON'T!
6. What materials do you prefer to use in your work?
Readily available this-and-that's from your junk drawer and under your sink.
7. What is your favorite Fiskars tool?
Today it's my paper punches, especially the stars. Tomorrow it might by any one of my Razor edge scissors. Saturday it will be something else. I feel guilty for picking favorites because I think my other tools will get jealous.
