Hi Fancy Pants fans... I am thrilled to be the on the red carpet today. I love this fun hobby that keeps us all creatively busy. With the responsibility of being a Mom to a teen & a very energetic 7 year old boy, assignments, deadlines & scrappy projects, my life can get completely crazy. So I make sure I make time for myself, walking on one of the beautiful beaches or mountains that surround my home. Secretly my fave hideout is my (almost revamped) craft room surrounded by all the things that I find most beautiful: photographs of my cute family, color, texture, paper, fabric, wool and paint. Being able to scrapbook my happy life & thoughts through a medium I love and get paid for it, is a dream come true.
Q: What is your favorite Fancy Pants product?
A: Definitely the patterned papers. I love how they perfectly co-ordinate with each other which means they are great for layering. Oh & having 'textured plains' on the reverse side is so helpful especially for printing or typing journaling.
Q: What are your favorite techniques?
A: Layering, stitching, die cutting & sewing.
Q: How long have you been scrapbooking?
A: 7 years...was sort of forced into it by an enthusiastic bunch of friends.
Q: If someone was to walk into your scrap room/area right now, what would they find?
A: An almost revamped scrap space which means my chaos has to be organized chaos, although my family won't agree, especially my little boy who says it is 'dangerous in there'. Ha!
Q: What do you listen to or watch while scrapbooking?
A: The sound of silence which I prefer or the frantic chirruping of Tweet...my little finch.
Q: What time of day do you usually scrapbook and where?
A: Day night or when ever the gap comes. I need to stay flexible otherwise I'd go nuts!
Q: What are some other hobbies you enjoy?
A: Sewing, Graphic design.
Q: Share something quirky about yourself.
A: I have an old typewriter fetish and at last count have.... um.... around 15 of the little darlin's,
Q: Is there anything else you’d like to share about yourself?
A: Although I live in an ultra modern house, I dream of a vintage doer-upper filled with retro furniture, crocheted granny square quilts & treasures. Getting my family to embrace the dream is proving really tough though :)
