Creative Big Blog Tour Nomination - August 25th...

I am really excited to be nominated as a Creative Blogger by a very talented scrapbooker, Carole Wright...you can visit her over at The Pretty Paper Patisserie.
Carole is a fellow DT Member for Stuck on U Sketches (SOUS)...you can find her on the Sketch Team and her artwork is FULL of embellishments and to-die-for color combos!
We are joining up as a chain of fun blog hop tours where we will get to meet new bloggers, get new inspiration and connect with blogs that will open up our creativity.

This blog hop is sure to be a great inspiration. 

I hope you hop along with us.

Here are my 4 questions that I need to answer before I pass along my nominations..
(I will then send you to 3 amazing artists you will love visiting!)
1. What am I working on?
Currently, I have several things in the works...some CTMH SOTM (Stamp of the Month) artwork that will go live on the 1st and I'm also trying to revamp an old weekly calendar so I will have a better handle on all of my obligations...I seem to be getting busier and busier...but that's no problem for me!  I love the opportunity to post to my blog more often!
2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I pay a lot of attention to details!  I think my artwork is full of little touches that may not mean that much to the average scrapbooker or card maker but I know those details belong there so I go the extra minute (or ten...lol) to make sure it's put there!
3. Why do I create what I do?
My craft room is a hide-away (except it's wide open to the living space in our house) for me to retreat to when nothing else seems to be going right.  I get lost in all my ribbons and paper and then I seem to forget that I have a headache or that my full-time job stunk that day or that I burnt our dinner...it's a stress reliever!
4. How does my creative process work?
I pin A LOT of stuff!!!  But...I rarely ever copy something exactly...I'll take a little bit of this and a little bit of that and bring it all together!  The end result may not turn out the way I had it in my head, but I still enjoyed the process.  I also do a LOT of trial and error.  I'll lay something down, take a photo of it with my phone...move it around, take another photo...move it again and take another photo.  This process is repeated 4 or 5 times...a lot of times, it's one little button or brad or journalling spot.  After I've taken photos of all my "options", I'll look through them all and pick the one that looks the best.  You would be surprised how much stepping away and getting the prospective of a photo can change the look of something you thought you loved!
Now...it's time to make my nomiation:

Please go visit Amie Kiger's Blog...here's what I love about her:
  • She is a fellow CTMH Consultant
  • She is a consistent blogger...she hardly ever goes two days in a row without posting
  • Her style is clean and innovative
  • Her tender heart exudes through her blog, her content and her comments
Go check her out!!!!
