Good morning!  I was invited to be part of the Creative Blog Tour by my friend Alicia! Her very cool blog is!  
I met Alicia through the MULTIPLE blog hops we have done together!!! She always has such SUPER CUTE projects, and I was honored when she asked me to take part in this tour!!!

Participants are to answer the following questions.  I hope this helps you get to know me a bit better.

What am I working on? 

I am currently trying to finish up my Close to My Heart Display Boards and Kits to show off ALL the amazing new paper we now offer in the NEW Annual Inspirations Catalog!!! I am TOTALLY loving playing with paper, embellishments, and all my pictures, as well as introducing new and existing customers to my favorite products that Close To My Heart has! 


How does my work differ from others of its genre?

Hmmmm....I don't think I really have a SPECIFIC style so I am not even sure of the genre I am in!  I kinda like ANY project that has to do with Close To My Heart products! I feel in LOVE with their products and I love playing with it ALL! I wish my bank account could afford EVERYTHING in the catalog, but that just doesn't work for us at this point! So as for a genre, I couldn't tell you how I differ from anyone else! 

Why do I create what I do?

Creativity is in my blood. My mother is very creative and my Aunt (her sister) is very creative as well! I remember as I child I LOVED getting a new box of crayons, so I could just let my coloring and creative skills go to work to draw pictures for EVERYONE in my family! Now, I LOVE to create to give my family and friends gifts to make them smile and to remember to ALWAYS keep their memories alive and recorded!!! I myself also LOVE to create because it is VERY therapeutic to me in my life right now. I can come into my craft room and throw myself into a project and not let the stresses of everyday life get to me!!! 

How does your creating process work?

I LOVE following up with an idea that comes into my head...unfortunately, these days, that does not happen as MUCH as I would like it to! So, I run to the computer and pull out some pics...Or, I go to my Cricut Cartridges and start flipping through the booklets to see what I feel like making. Sometimes, the need comes from a birthday, anniversary, design team project or blog hop! I do also LOVE to check out WAY old Idea Books and Stamp/Scrapbook magazines for inspiration. Also, I love to check out message boards and Facebook groups! 

Now to my choices of talented crafters to which I pass on the torch!

My first pick was Krystle from Krystle's Crafty Niche
Krystle is my online bestie! We met over our love of Jaded Blossom products, and I helped her to get a White Daisy Ink pad from Close To My Heart, and from there, our bond grew! She is an AMAZING mother and has the CUTEST little girls ever! She is a VERY talented crafter and is always there to cheer you on or to be a fellow JB stalker! 

Next up is Tanya from Crafting on Caffeine 

Tanya and I have become friends over our MUTUAL love of everything Jaded Blossom. Tanya and I were "JB stalkers" together, and just recently, Tanya was asked to become a Design Team member for Jaded Blossom! I was SO very proud of her because she worked her butt off to become a part of the team! And her dedication goes to show that as long as you keep working VERY HARD at what you want, you WILL achieve your goal! 

Finally, we have my girl Wanda from Green Apple Scrapper!

Wanda and I met when I got to talking to her about my love of Close To My Heart! We talked and talked one night about a TON of things, and I even got to Skype her and see her sweet angels! She is SUCH a good mommy and a SUPER talented crafter!!! She even teaches ALL types of crafty awesomeness at her local Michael's! She is ALSO a Close To My Heart rep..even promoted to Supervisor! I am VERY proud to have her on my team!!!

Please check these ladies out and they will post the answers to their questions next Monday, September 8.
