Creative Blog Tour

Hello All,

Yes,  it has been a while since I have posted.  Sometimes life seems to get in the way.  There has been lots of happenings that have kept me very busy.

I hope today is the first post to get me back into the swing of crafting and blogging.

My Friend Jennifer asked me to participate in this Creative Blog Tour.  I thought maybe this would be a great way to start things off.   You can check out her blog here......

Take a some time and go back and see some of the talented ladies from this tour.

What am I working on?

This weekend I started making some Halloween cards.  Since I have been having crafting block I made a couple cards from some Pinterest inspiration.  That was helpful to get me started.  Then, since I received some new stamps from the Unity Stamp Company, I decided to take part in their monthly challenge.

How does my work differ from others?

I am not sure how my style is different.  However, I really love to play with colors.  I am fascinated with all sorts of mediums.  The first card I used my Gelatos to make the background.  I really love the Gelatos. They are fun and easy to use.  I also have been using some of the Silks Acrylic Glaze paints.  Great for paper crafting.  I just love how they work with paper.  I am also interested in adding water color to my proljects.

Why do I create what I do?

The creative process to me can be relaxing.  I try to push myself outside my comfort zone.  The position I hold at work requires me to be very organized and controlled.  Crafting lets me make a mess.  Sometimes those messes hit the garbage but sometimes they turn out beautiful.  Crafting helps me to realize that I can make mistakes and it is OK.

How does my creative process work?

I have got a head full of ideas.  But they don't always work out.  I try to make small sketches before I start.  I am always amazed on how the idea materializes differently that what I expected.   I also spend a lot of time blog hopping.  This is a great way to find inspiration.

Thank you for stopping by.  Sadly, I appear to be the end of this string of the tour.  Many of my blog friends are very busy with their families and were not going to be able to participate.
