When did you first start crafting and how did you learn?

I've been crafting since I could hold a pair of scissors. Growing up, we always had loads of craft materials to mess around with. My mother is artistic and would show me how to do things if I got stuck.

Can you remember the first thing you made?

The first thing that I made that I'm still proud of was a set of stuffed Christmas ornaments that I sewed from felt and beads, when I was about 5. My mother still has them.

Where do you look for inspiration?

I poke around in obscure corners of the internet, looking for things NOT made from paper, that I could adapt for paper.

What's your craft space like and how do you organize your supplies?

It's a huge mess in what is supposed to be the dining room of our house. I am not particularly organized, although I do try to keep my paper sorted by color. Other than that I have materials stashed in a large corner cupboard, a small sideboard, a couple sets of plastic drawers, and a bookcase. My computer and Cameo are in another room altogether, which is not very convenient.

What music/podcasts/TV shows do you love to craft along to?

Blissful silence!

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

I will try almost any craft! I used to sew most of my clothes, and then my children's clothes. I know how to knit and crochet and I like to make bead jewelry. Anything that can be made into a wreath, I will make into a wreath (paper flowers, vintage Christmas ornaments, crocheted flowers, pine cones). With my Cameo I've dabbled in vinyl, but paper is my favorite. I garden a bit, and am an avid reader.
