Getting to know you Blog hop

I am so happy to today I was
tag to be in a different king of blog hop
"getting to know you"

I was tagged by one of my oldest
and dearest "bloggy friends"
Diana is so talented and extremely generous
she host a monthly linky party
along with a Thankful Thursday Challenge
her prizes are amazing
she is also a Close to my Heart
truly worth a visit

 a little sample of her work

now on the getting to know ME part

 1. What am I working on?
 right now I am working on two mini albums
and some stamped images
I color them with my copics while watching tv

  2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
  I don't thing my work does differ from anyone else.
Trying different techniques and products excites me.
My newest obsession is cards with "white space"

 3. Why do I write/create what I do?
 Think I have always had a creative side.
My grandmother was a seamstress
I remember going through her buttons, lace, trims and
"little scrap pieces" of fabric
remember think to my self
"how can they be scrap piece they are so beautiful"
think my love of repurposing started there...
Creating also helps me distress after a demanding day at work
now one can tell me what colors to use, what goes together
or doesn't
it all up to Me :)

 4. How does your writing/creating process work?
  Honestly I wish I was better at the writing part of blogging
but my "Real" job requires me to write all day long
email, IM's, letters so when I get time to craft or blog it's the writing/typing that
suffers most.
Creating comes from all directions
other blogs, purchased products, Youtube videos,
flower colors in my garden, utterly anything can spark
an idea

this card was inspired by
Pretty Pink Posh
got the die and sequins
from her shop
a shaker card on my
Bucket List of Card's
I need to make

chick and sentiment are
Denami Design
papers from Doodlebug Designs
added some wink of stella
and a little bit of twine

send this to a friend for their birthday
