After giving you sneak peeks of the new A Muse stamps, notecards and ribbon (what did you get?), I thought I should give some attention to the spring stamps that The Saltbox Studio has out, too. I had just kinda left those images alone so I could make cards for this season, but now I am ready for spring and decorated eggs. I have lots of ideas for this basket of eggs, so keep your eyes peeled for more!
In other news, an A Muse Addict (and I do not use that term lightly!) named Amanda, tagged me. I just saw it last night, so I thought I'd play this time. (I am so bad at tag...)
stamping style - S I M P L E!!!!! Gets my vote 99% of the time.
inspiration - I actually get lots of ideas from the gazillions of children's books that I read. I love the illustrations in books and I find myself looking through books for little details all the time.
color - I, like Amanda, love yellow. However, I don't use it all that much in stamping. For stamping, I like blues and greens best.
work space - My work space is lovingly called the Craft Hole (it is a converted cedar closet). It became mine after our third child was born and I got kicked out of the extra bedroom.
perfect day - Hmmm, good question. I'd love to have a day that doesn't require too much of my spare time, where I can do things at a slow pace, and I can relax a little bit, too.
first job - Besides babysitting, I worked in the kitchen of a nursing home one summer. I made lots of pureed muffins and fruit plates.
wildest dream - I don't have wild dreams....I'm too busy!
ink - Versa Fine onyx black is my tried and true.
family - a fantastic and generous husband, and four mini-me's
beverage - I am a water drinker, but when it is cold I love to have hot chocolate, too!
biggest challenge - Making sure that I get the mom and wife stuff done, so I can do Elena stuff at the end of the day.
Ok, well, I will not be posting to my blog for a few days because I will be out of town. I hope everyone finds time to stamp and play!
