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

I was about eight years old when my mom taught me to hand sew and how to use her sewing machine.

Can you remember the first thing you made?

It was a long, black dress for a Barbie doll. It had a long cape, with different colored bows sewn from top to bottom.

Where do you look for inspiration?

I used to find most of my inspiration everywhere I went. But then Pinterest came along and it has become my "go to" place for inspiration.

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

My studio was a family room, with a nearby bathroom and laundry room. It walks out onto our patio and backyard. I have three Ikea wardrobe cabinets (with added shelves), an armoire, a letter sorter (for cardstock) and an antique dresser for my supplies. Most of my supplies are kept in clear shoeboxes that are labeled. I have a large table and eight chairs for people attending my classes.

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

HGTV, TLC, DIY, Food Network or Netflix.

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

I have done many different crafts in my life and have found papercrafting to be my favorite. I also enjoy flower gardening, decorating my home, reading, re-purposing antiques and vintage junque, painting furniture, bargain shopping and volunteering.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

I consider myself fortunate to have found a creative profession where I am not bored and I am always learning something new. And, I have the satisfaction of teaching what I learn to other people and see the joy they have creating papercrafting projects.
