Meet the Author
Hey there, can you introduce yourself?
I’m Lisa Pace and I live in Frisco, Texas with my husband Alan, 2 daughters and 3 dogs. I started scrapbooking in 2006 and have been hooked since.
Tell us a bit about the book?
Delight In The Seasons is a book that will inspire you year round. It’s filled with crafting projects for memorable holidays, special occasions and celebrations.
What was the inspiration behind it?
I’ve always loved creating projects of all kinds year round and while sitting in my friend Caroline’s car in Sonic (a fast food drive in) we were talking about my plans for doing a second book, while tossing out ideas this one just came together in our conversation. Once I got home I wrote up my proposal, sent it to my publisher and the rest is history.
Which is your favourite project?
This is a really hard question as I honestly do like all the projects I created but the one that really sticks out is the layout called “Love Letters” on page 28. I photo copied a letter my grandfather wrote to my grandmother in 1926 while they were dating and incorporated it into the layout as well as used his beginning and ending sentiments. My grandfather always started out his letters with “My Dearest Girly” and ended them with “P.S. Wrote with a hug sealed with a kiss I love the one that opened this. xoxo
What is your craft space like?
Oh goodness, I’m glad you cannot see my crafting space as it is complete and total chaos. Although I like to call it creative chaos but it’s chaos none the less. I usually have one deadline after another to meet and I’m terrible at cleaning up after each project so I have piles and piles of product and supplies all over.
Have you always been creative?
Yes, I’ve always been creative. My mom and I for as long as I can remember have had some kind of project in progress.
When did you first start crafting?
I do not remember a time I have not crafted. The earliest memory I have is at the age of 3 sitting at the kitchen table with my mom painting a ceramic squirrel. I remember thinking this was the best thing ever!
Who are your crafty heroes?
Suze Weinberg is one of my all time crafty heroes. I love the funky style she has when creating her beautiful jewelry and Melt Art canvases. I was lucky enough to get to visit her and her husband one evening for dinner at their home and it is a moment I will never forget. She is truly a wonderful person. I also love everything Rebecca Sower creates. The way Rebecca incorporates vintage items and textiles into her projects is always beautiful and inspiring.
Where do you find inspiration?
Lots of my inspiration begins while digging in thrift stores, flea markets and antique shops. A pattern on a vintage dish cloth or other textile piece can spark an idea as well as finding odd pieces of jewelry, utensils and vintage ephemera. Usually just before I fall asleep an idea will pop into my head to which I either write it down or run into my craft room and start creating. I have a terrible sleeping schedule.
What's next for you?
Presently, I am working on book 3 which I’m really excited about doing. My goal of having a “Delight” series is coming together, which makes me really happy.
