1. Where do you get your inspiration from?

I get inspiration from people. I like to make things especially for people I know even though they might never buy the item. For example, my sister once told me she needed some really cute thank you cards. I kept that in the back of my mind and made some funky cards that I knew she would like. Others liked them too, as they sold within an hour of being listed!

2. Tell me about your self and your design style?

I am married with two young boys and am constantly on the go. In the evenings I like to sit and make my crafty cards. It's a good way to relax from the sometimes crazy days!

I like to think of myself as bright and cheerful as well as fun and upbeat. So, I try to make my items reflect that. I love using bright colors and fun embellishments. I take most of my photos outside in the natural light to help brighten up my items even more.

3. What things do you shop for? What catches your eye? On Etsy, I mainly shop for gifts and embellishments to use on my cards. I love felt, buttons, chipboard and flowers. The items that catch my eye are usually bright and well made but also unique.
