The Creative Blog Hop

Today, it is my please to be a part of The Creative Blog Hop thanks to my friend Penny Hanuskak at /  I am posting as part of a one time only Blog Hop, that my friend Penny invited me to be a part of today.  I was thrilled to accept her kind invitation. Penny is a fellow Canadian, and a wonderful inspiration to me, and those that follow her on her Blog. Thank you Penny, for the privilege of being a part of this wonderful Blog Hop. Thank you for all you do for fellow Stampers. This is a pleasure indeed.

Let's get to know one another by answering a few questions.

1). WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON NOW? I have a few projects on the go, as always. I am currently working on a Mixed Media project. I have about 30 cards I'm getting ready to send out as Random Acts of  Kindness surprise packs. There is never a dull moment in my Craft Room, that's for sure.

2). HOW DOES YOUR WORK DIFFER FROM OTHERS IN YOUR GENRE? Well, I am a collector of everything craft related. Smile  I love to take things apart, and restore them in a Vintage, Shabby Chic Era kind of way. My style is certainly Vintage, and Shabby Chic. The more paper I can get on a card, the better. I shy away from the Clean and Simple style, only because it is not what I am used to doing. I love the look, but my mind cannot get around all the beautiful white space, not being filled with something Vintage. I love the distressed look on my projects. CAS cards are beautiful, but the more I can grunge up my cards, the better.

3). WHY DO YOU CREATE WHAT YOU DO?  I create to share the gift God has given me to bring a piece of happiness to a person, through a card, a painting, or whatever I am working on at the time. Everyone has a creative side to them, we just need some nurturing to bring it out. I hope to encourage those that want to create, but they don't know where to start.

4). HOW DOES YOUR CREATIVITY WORK? Well, my creative side never seems to shut down. I am constantly looking for ways to fix a second hand find, or create something new on a card. I just love the creative process of bringing life to a piece of paper, or something sitting at a Thrift Store full of dust, just wanting some TLC. I guess, I just love to craft. Once you start this wonderful hobby, there is no turning back. Smiles


  1. I posted a comment yesterday Carol, but don't see it on here, so I'll try again. First of all thanks so much for joining me on the Creative Blog Hop. You did an excellent job of completing the questions and posting on Monday. And secondly, I absolutely love your Valentine's Necklace card. Very classy and romantic for Valentine's Day. The mini bag with the tag on the interior of the card is very special. Your video is full of information and tips and after watching it I'm going to be dragging out my stencils to add some embossing and sparkle to my projects. Awesome! Have a great day!

  2. hmm, I wrote something but it didn't publish, so I will try again. I love your video and your card is gorgeous. Your creativity is such an inspiration.

  3. Thank you so much Penny. Your kind words of inspiration have touched my heart. It was my pleasure friend! It was so much fun!

  4. Hi Janet, my friend! Thank you for always being there for me, encouraging me to create more, and more! I appreciate you!
