Scrappy Blog tour and I was excited to play along!
As part of the tour I am going to share answers to a few questions.
What am I working on right now?
Actually my crafting has slowed down to a crawl or even a complete stop – my dad passed away recently and since then my heart has just been too heavy to craft. But VERY soon, like after I get my package of Doodlebug products I ordered – I am going to dig out all the pictures of my dad and our family camping and use the Happy Camper collection to make layouts to honor him and his memory!
And I just got doilies in lovely Doodlebug colors that I would like to create some awesome things with!!
How long does it take me to create a project?
I am a quick layout maker – I feel like the page should tell a story and that it does not have to be a masterpiece. I journal on every single page I create and I feel proud each time I get a photo out of a box and onto a layout in my kids books!! As far as cards go – I like Clean and Simple. Don’t want to spend more than a half hour or so on a card!! Sometimes a project will spark my interest and take an extra long time but usually I have to be quick since I have oodles of pictures to scrap and many upon many cards to send!!
What are my favorite things to create with at the moment?
I adore using anything from Doodlebug Design – they create the best products and I have a few ( kind of an understatement!) of them – Here is a picture of some of the items I have collected.
I also have been trying so very hard to use all my NBUS – an acronym from Darnell over at djkardkreations meaning “Never Before Used Stuff” and boy. do I have lots of that. I was a Stampin’Up! demonstrator for several years so I have lots of their stamps. As I get my allowance each month I try to pick up some stamp sets from other companies!!
How does my creating process work?
For cards – it seems to be challenge driven lately or because I need a certain card for someone!
For layouts – it all starts with photos that need to be scrapped. I am trying to keep it even and scrap something of each person and then start that cycle again!! Sometimes I get really inspired with one child’s photos and really go to town!!
How do I become inspired and stay inspired?
By visiting the blogs of all the creative and crafty people I love out here in Blogland! I visit my Pinterest boards often and try to regularly create something that came from my boards!
What is my signature style?
I wish I thought I had a style – the only thing that seems to be consistent with me is that I love bright colors and bold images and cute, whimsical icons! I don’t know any more to say about that!
So everybody that I could think of has already done some sort of this blog tour thing recently – so I think this might have to end here – But that is okay, right?! Because all good things must come to an end!
Thank you for sticking with me through this long post!! Love having you stop by and visit!! I’d love it if you left me a message!!
I really need to express my thanks for all the kind and sweet, and so sincere comments I received after I posted about my dad! I think in a way I am trying to get back into blogging because I have missed many of you so much!!!
