Creative Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog today. I can't believe that it is already September 1.  I'm so happy to be part of the Creative Blog Hop. This hop is a tour of different creative blogs. It is a great way to meet new bloggers and to get inspiration from them.  I was invited to be part of the hop by the ever so talented Kim from Angel Dream Crafts.  I met Kim almost two years ago and we have formed a wonderful friendship.

I have posted some pictures from past projects as I go about answering my hop questions!

1. What I am working on? Currently I am working on unpacking and setting up my craft space! I moved mid-July and am looking forward to getting this done. I have some great storage and organizers that I have gotten from Gina's Designs and am using those to help with this huge task. As I am unpacking and organizing, I am taking the opportunity to weed out things that I no longer enjoy.
2. How does my work differ from others in my genre? As you can tell by my pictures, I do all sorts of different things. Besides paper crafting, I also like to do counted cross-stitch, basic quilting (and I mean BASIC!), and beading. This year was also the first year I played around with the steam punk style. What I want to get into next is mixed-media!
3. Why do I write/create what I do? For me, crafting is my happy place. Creating regenerates my batteries and helps me forget a bad day. I try and set aside one day of the weekend to craft and if I am lucky, I might be able to squeeze in an hour or two during the workweek.

4 How does my writing/creative process work? Typically I will sit down knowing what I am going to make, like a layout. After that, it is all trial and error! I usually tryout different things before I commit. If I find myself being to wishy-washy, I will start gluing things down and create from there! As far as inspirations do, I find myself being inspired by so many things; nature, pictures, music, emotions, etc. On those days that I need a little nudge, I will go look on pintrest or challenge blogs.
Okay, next up on the hop is my crafty friend Sandy. I met Sandy over a year ago on facebook. We happened to be in the same crafting group. Sandy's blog is Sweet Sands Crafts. You will be able to see all of Sandy's Creative Blog Hop post on Monday, September 8.

Thank you for stop by my blog today!
