Creative bloggers hop.

Hello crafty peeps!

I've been nominated by the lovely Laine Webb to take part in the Creative Bloggers Hop! I have to apologise for not having the exact questions written down, we are having major work done on our house at the moment and I've lost the paper with the questions on! Anyway, here goes...

1. What am I working on now?

At the moment my craft room is packed away in boxes as the room is being knocked through into the kitchen. Our old dining room will become our bigger craft/ study room, exciting! I'm missing getting inky already, but I'm thinking about ways to use the new and very beautiful stencils from Designs By Ryn, as I'm extremely lucky to be on Ryn's design team!

2. How do I differ from others in my genre?

I'm not really sure, I don't think I have a particular style, I just make what takes my fancy at the time!

3. Why do I do what I do?

I discovered rubber stamps about 18 years ago and I've been hooked ever since! There's so much lovely crafty stuff to buy now but back then there were only ink pads and embossing powder... I think stamping is a great way to enjoy being 'arty' even if you can't draw (which I definitely can't lol). I love colours and pretty things so this hobby is THE BEST! :D

4. How do I do what I do?

Some of my favourite projects have started off on a background of Dylusions inks, I make lots of backgrounds in different colours so I have a stock ready and waiting. I usually build up layers then with stencils, stamps and finally die-cuts. But on another day I may be in a Clean and Simple mood!

Now it's time for me to nominate two other ladies whose blogs I find inspirational, they will post their answers to the questions next Monday.

Zoe Russell is a lovely lady and one of the first crafty friends I made when I joined blog land! Her work is always colourful and Zoe comes up with fabulous and individual designs, take a look at her blog HERE!

Pauline Orr also has a fab blog, she makes some great multi-media projects and it's always a pleasure to pay her blog a visit, have a look HERE.

Well, thank you for visiting today and for finding out a bit about me. :) Big hugs! Xxxx
