This week's Craftholic is none other than the fantastic: Jacque!
Please list any crafts you enjoy making. What is your favorite?
"I have a passion for all crafting, sewing, reupholstering, scrapbooking, cross stitch, ceramics, crocheting, and I could go on and on - I just love making stuff! At the present I am very ADDICTED to my scrapbooking - it so much fun and now that I have the blog it is even more fun!"
What a great creative space!
When did you start making crafts? Was there a particular reason or event that got your started?
"I think I literally came out of the womb being creative and crafty - I was the girl in school that got by because of all the extra credit assignments, give me a glue stick and I can go to town!!! When my daughter was born, I became very addicted to scrapbooking. When we bought our first home as a married couple with child, I became addicted once again to recovering every used item we could find at yard sales etc., and making it fresh and exciting. Paint and fabric can cover a multitude of imperfections - LOL!!!!"
Boy, I could so use your talent at my house! lol
From Jacque: "This is a sectional that I recovered a few years ago. We bought it at a yard sale for $125.00 and it had a terrrible green stripped fabric YUCK!!!!! So, I ordered this fabric in bulk and recovered it. Now, it is the center of our mexican themed family room. The fabric is actually chef pant material called Mexican Hat Dance - Chef pant fabric is very durable and it cost me a fraction of what I would of paid for regular upolstry fabric - WOO-HOO!!!! I think when everything was said and done the Couch cost us around $200.00. WE LUV IT!"
What do you like to do when you aren't crafting?
"Spend time with my family."
What makes you a craftoholic? What drives you to create?
"EVERYTHING!!! Colors, pictures, old stuff that can be made new - practically everything. I can just see something's potential and go for it! It so much FUN!!!!"
From Jacque: "This is my very first Paper Bag Album, I made it for my step mom after she took the kids to the circus. She got a real kick out of it."
