1. Describe yourself in five words
impatient, determined, creative, colorful & organized.
2. What are you creating?
Currently, I am working on getting my bedroom decorated. We’ve been in this house six months and it’s only just now started to come together. This past year, I have been documenting what goes on during the day to day using the Project Life system and I love it. Professionally, I am dreaming up my next minibook idea & thinking about my second rubber stamp launch.
3. When and why did you start crafting?
I think I have always created in one way or another, but my earliest memory was asking for a scrapbook for Christmas when I was eight.
4. How do you explain to other people what you are doing?
I don’t usually. :) I have a hard time putting into words what I do for a living and what my blog is about. It is usually much easier to just show them.
5. Who or what inspires you?
I am super inspired by anyone who is a master at their craft. Chefs, gardeners, painters, dancers, musicians, etc. I am more inspired by pattern than color. I am inspired by daylight and summertime.
6. Three crafting related things you would take along on a lonely island?
A journal, a polaroid camera and a black pen.
+1 Additional: What does your crafting room look like (feel free to add a picture!)
Thank you, Elise!
