1.Tell us a little about you and your blog.
I started my blog to be able to share with my family and friends the fun things that I had been creating. More specifically I had become quite infatuated with creating fun and interesting cakes for my friends and family for holidays. I remember sitting on the couch one day watching a cake show on food network and thought to myself….”I can do that!”. I looked up a few things on the internet and I was on my way.
2.How and when did you start crafting?
My mom helped my sister and I start crafting at a VERY young age, I would say 5 or 6. I loved to glue things together and paint them fun colors. I remember buying craft kits and thinking I would be able to sell the “treasures” I made for money and become a millionaire. I think that early art classes and even girl scouts concreted my love of art and crafting. I still to this day have a unicorn t-shirt that I painted with puffy paints when I was about 7, to this day it is still soooo cool.
3.How often do you craft?
I love to craft and bake as often as possible. I would say that I easily craft at least once a week if not more. There seems to always be something calling to me to try and make or create. I have even gotten to the point now where I need to keep a list of ideas on my cell phone to keep track of them.
4.Where do you get your inspiration?
There are many places that I get my inspiration from! First would be my friends and family. I love to create things for people that are specific to their love and interests. I also love to read craft books and scour the internet for new and fun ideas. Most recently I have found myself visiting art museums and being in awe of the talent and patience, then wandering home and attempting things in my own way.
5.What is your favorite medium to work in?
I love love love clay, however it is a little too expensive to work with for just fun projects. I have found fondant and chocolate an excellent replacement for my sculpting needs and everyone is willing to take part in eating whatever odd projects I have created. I also love working with fabric of all kinds, to this day is still amuses me how you can take a flat piece of fabric and create it into so many things.
6.What is your guilty pleasure?
Oh man…..that’s a broad question. I am not sure I can just pick one. Glee, crab rangoons, and shoes.
7.What makes you smile?
Everything makes me smile, I am often referred to as “irritatingly perky”…..in the best way possible…..so to name a few things: Family, friends, cats, dogs, unicorns, soccer, softball, Alana, pink, unicorns, cookies, costumes, kids, trampolines, stars, boots, snow, leaves, grass, clouds, lemonade, pizza, tiny note books, guitars, music, coffee shops, haircuts, flowers, fresh vegetables, balloons, warm blankets, snuggling, a good book, cartoons, car rides, swimming, jumping off things, gardening, apple picking, movies, glue sticks, spray paint, take out….and the list could go on and on.
8.What is your favorite thing to do (other than crafting)?
I love to play soccer on my local co-ed team. No matter how grumpy I show up to soccer, I leave in a fantastic mood.
