aka: the post that I talk about myself.
If you haven’t figured it out by now, I am the daughter of the LadyBeez team….and the voice of this here blog. While my mother, Bonnie, is very talented at many things, technology is not her strong suit. So, you’re stuck with me!
Here I am with my family. I am blessed to be married to an amazingly supportive (and may I add VERY handsome) man, Randy, and we have 2 ridiculous children: Samantha (age 3.5) and Cashton (7.5 months).
I could go on and on, but I asked my mom to write some questions for me….you’ll notice they sound eerily similar to the questions I asked her. She cracks me up!
How old were you when you started sewing/crafting?
I have no idea! I’m pretty sure I was creating something while still en utero. Honestly, I remember coloring and drawing and painting and crafting from the time I was very young. Apparently it runs in the family. Already my Samantha asks to color or paint 4-5/day. As for sewing, my mom tried to teach me about a million times when I was younger, but I never really had the motivation. I found my motivation about 2 years ago when I started blogging, and I realized that I could make some adorable clothes for my daughter (much cheaper) if I made them myself.
Who taught you?
As I was saying, first it was my mother….and she is still my on-call sewing advisor. But, I found that I am a very visual learner that hates patterns, so this means that I learn best by visual tutorials and measurements. Make sense? Well, if it does, can you explain it to me? hehehe. If you ask my mom, she’ll tell you I teach myself a lot. I guess I’m the only one who can figure me out.
What is your favorite color?
Tough one. Right now, I’d have to say Orange, but really I just LOVE COLOR! ALL COLOR!
What is your favorite creative outlet?
I’m becoming very fond of sewing. I LOVE Photography! Paper crafting is fun too, but very difficult to do with small children around eating it….
What tool would you create to help you do your craft more easily?
a maid….that way I wouldn’t have to worry about tending to our housework….wait, do I even worry about that now?
What new craft would you like to learn?
I’d love to take a photography class. I’d love to learn to crochet, but then that would just add one more thing that I don’t have time for 🙂
If you had unlimited funds, what would you do?
I’d quit my job., and take our family traveling all over the world!
What would be your perfect job?
Open an arts & craft store/boutique where all my crafty friends could sell their goods, and we could host classes to teach others how to tap into their creative side!
What is the hardest project you’ve ever done?
I make ever project harder than it has to be! LOL! I always like to try new things, but never like to follow a pattern. I feel like I need to make it “my own”. So, to-date, I’d have to go with Samantha’s Quilt. I made up my own pattern, and messed up more than once! Love it…but glad it’s finished.
What crafts do you like putting together to make a project?
I’d have to say that photography pairs well with whatever project I work on. I love to take pictures of the process and finished product.
SEE, I warned you I was long-winded!
