1)How long have you been crafting? Did you start as a child? Did someone inspire your creativity?

I’ve been coloring since I picked up my first crayon.


2) When did you buy your first stamp? What were the circumstances surrounding that purchase?

Oh gosh, a long time ago. I started buying stamps regularly in 2005 though after going to a home party.


3) What is your favorite stamping medium? Waterproof ink, Embossing Ink/powder? Glitter?

Most of the time I stamp and color with markers. I use Momento inks and Neenah paper.


4) When in your local stamp shoppe or online stamping store, what is your guilty pleasure that you end up buying although you know you already have tons of? Ribbons/Papers/Inks/Pens... etc.?

Stamps… ;)


5) What coloring medium do you prefer? Prisma's, Tombow's, or Copic's? Other?

I use Shinhan Touch Twin markers. They are alcohol based and blend beautifully.


6) Future goals of things you want to learn to use with your stamping... or try.. .be it a technique or submitting to a magazine, or teaching classes, starting your own shoppe...etc..

I’d like to get back to drawing again. It’s been a while and I’ve missed it.


7) Other crafting you do? Job? Hobbies or interests?

I’ve very luck in that my jobs are all craft related. I coordinate artistic teams for Shinhan Art Materials (Touch Twin markers and other fine art supplies), The {Stamps} of Life and Discount Cardstock.com. On my off time I watch bunches of movies and read.


8) Share with us your favorite project, and the techniques you used.

- Cuuuute image, marker coloring, Flower Soft and fun twine!

Here are some more of Jeanne's adorable cards...

And now it's time for the fabulous "Sweet Miss Daisy" - Anna Wight...

1)How long have you been crafting? Did you start as a child? Did someone inspire your creativity?
My family is very crafty, and some of my oldest memories are of me and Mom coloring in coloring books at Grandma's house. Mom is a wonderful quilter, and Dad is very handy with wood, construction, and tying flies for fishing! I think just about everyone in my family does something crafty.

2) When did you buy your first stamp? What were the circumstances surrounding that purchase?
It was the summer of 1993, in a little shop in Florence, Oregon. I remember because I worked at the Girl Scout camp near there during the summer, and there was a little shop in town that always had the cutest things! The stamp is from the line of Richard Scarry images that Penny Black licensed that year. I still own it, and am still trying to collect images from the line. Help a girl out!? *grin*

3) What is your favorite stamping medium? Waterproof ink, Embossing Ink/powder? Glitter?
I think my favorite is just coloring images. Watercoloring, markers, pencils ... love it all! I really do love to stamp in black StazOn ink and watercolor images using a variety of watercoloring products. I also have a fondness for adding glitter to just about everything. Doesn't everyone?

4) When in your local stamp shoppe or online stamping store, what is your guilty pleasure that you end up buying although you know you already have tons of?
Ribbons/Papers/Inks/Pens... etc.?
Designer paper. Ribbon, string, twine, jute. Coloring tools. Buttons. Dies. GLITTER! ...I don't have just one guilty pleasure, it seems!

5) Future goals of things you want to learn to use with your stamping... or try.. .be it a technique or submitting to a magazine, or teaching classes, starting your own shoppe...etc..
I've done a lot of things as a stamper. I love the people I've met through this craft, and am so grateful for all the opportunities that have come my way. I would love to try more "techniques", but don't always have the patience to deal with the "mess" of techniques. I tend to do most of my work in about 24" of space, or less. There's not a lot of room for "mess", along with the MESS! Especially since I am a multitasking crafter, and always have several projects going at any given time.

6) Other crafting you do? Job? Hobbies or interests?
I like to sew, and I love photography. I find inspiration in colors, and nature. I love the country/primitive style, and love to add a bit of it to most everything I do.

7) Share with us your favorite project, and the techniques you used.
I think my all-time favorite High Hopes project was the "old goat" card. I stamped the image in black StazOn ink, and painted it with liquid re-inkers. I also really love the card I made using the High Hopes lamb. I used flock to give the lamb texture, and was just delighted with the results! And I really love the Northwoods Stack image, so this card stands out as a favorite of mine, as well.
