No idea what the what I'm talking about? Go here to find out more!
Please list any crafts you enjoy making.
What is your favorite?
Easy enough! lol
I love this envelope mini album! Such a great use for those seasonal decorative envelopes I will never use! lol
When did you start making crafts? Was there a particular reason or event that got your started?
"When I was growing up we owned a ceramic shop and it seems like I've been doing crafts forever."
What do you like to do when you aren't crafting?
"Read, surf, chat online"
Surf? As in the ocean? Where the sharks live?! Impressive! lol ;)
What makes you a craftoholic? What drives you to create?
"I am a Craftoholic because I am in my scrapbook room when I'm not working the scrapbooking business. I collect scrappy supplies-it seems like there's always something that I "need". It gives me balance and peace...I feel like I'm actually doing something for myself."
Oh boy I love that paper distressing...*drool*
**I was dying to know some inside info on running a kit club and luckily Von was more than willing so share! Click the button to check out LPS!**
What made you decide to get into the scrapbook kit business?
"I was approached by the previous owner of Life Preservers and I didn't even have to think twice before I said YES!"
What’s the best part of owning a kit club?
"I get to work around and with the products I love! My research involves checking out the newest and hottest items and trends and that's a blast!"
How you decide what to put in each kit?
"Okay...now you're asking the hard questions! I try to keep myself abreast of what scrappers are loving at the moment. I listen to my client base and make my selections based upon their likes/desires. I do better creating a kit with papers that I'm really into also; I know that not everyone has the same taste as myself and sometimes it's a stretch to put together a kit that is a different style than what I normally scrap with. I love it when a kit comes together and the finished product is a bag of goodies that I would go out and buy myself (because if I wouldn't buy it then how can I expect someone else to?)"
What is your favorite food?
Oh boy oh boy, I live for M&Ms!
What food do you hate to eat?
What a perfect gift certificate holder!
How long have you been blogging?
"Over a year-(I'm not as good as I should be about keeping it up)"
What do you like best about blogging?
"Having a place to post pics for far away family (BUT I really love looking at blogs by other crafters)."
What craft have you always wanted to try but, for whatever reason, never have?
Oh no! You've been ship wrecked on a deserted island! (Luckily you grabbed your adhesive and scissors before you jumped ship!) Name 3 other crafting supplies that your creative survival depends upon! (Note: Capt. Jack Sparrow is not a crafting supply!)
"LOL! Distressing Inks are a NECESSITY for me, buttons and ribbon (I'm assuming the island has an endless supply of cardstock,...hehe!)"
