Creative Blog Hop

You might have seen the Creative Blog Hop going around lately....

source


I was fortunate enough, that my dear friend Ros nominated me as one of the crafter that inspired her, thank you Ros, you are a great inspiration to me as well.

Here are the answers of the questions being asked -

What am I working on
I usually get my DT work done as soon as we have the theme set up, they includes work for City Crafter Challenge Blog and LESSology monthly challenge. Besides the DT work, I took part in a few challenges regularly, like Papertrey ink make it monday, My Favorite Things color palette challenge and Moxie Fab World whenever they have a challenge.

How does my work differ from others of it genre
I don't know, you tell me, LOL!
I only know that I like trying different thing, I love shabby chic, lots of layers but I also love clean and simple, especially now that postage are so high, I tends to do more flat, envelope friendly cards.

Why do I create what I do
Simply one word - JOY

How does your creative process work
Not sure if it sounds weird to you, most of the time, when I see something that inspired me, it could be a magazine cover, it could be window display, it could be something I see from blogland, images from tumblr etc.... I need to get to my craft room like right away.... when it doesn't allowed, it bothers me even in my sleep, I will keep thinking about it and just can't wait for get into the craft room first thing in the morning. But.... a lot of time, the project just didn't come up the way I had in mind, it revolves along the way.... and it might turn out something completely different from what I had in mind at the first place, weird?

Alright, so much of me, I better stop here.

To keep the Creative Blog Hop going, I have to pick two crafters that I admire, here you go....

Audrey Pettit from A Peek Into My Scrappy World
What I love most about Audrey's work is.... she is just amazing in everything she does, she has an eye for colors, her style is sweet and feminine and very eye catching, besides all her paper crafts, she also great at sewing, every time she posted a sewing project, I just want to run into my craft room and pull some of the fabrics out and start working, haha.. but my craft room is so packed and I had to put the fabrics in a big plastic box at the bottom of all the paper, that makes it hard to get them out, whew...

Audrey is good at holiday decor, especially halloween, if you haven't seen one of Audrey's haunted house tour, you gotta to check it out.

........................

Ira Huberts from Ira's Crea Corner
Ira's work is like a beautiful display in an art gallery, a museum..... every of her projects looks like it needs tons of hours, it is complex and it always come with a story, but most importantly, it is always unique and beautiful.

Thanks for the inspiration Audrey and Ira, I hope you keep the Creative Blog Hop going in this great place we all shared - THE BLOGLAND!

Hello Kirsty,
This was so fun to read!! Love finding out more about you and your work process too. Do you have a schedule like by the day of what you work on? How many hours a day/week do you spend crafting?
I totally relate to the need to create as soon as you get an idea. I'm the same way when I wake up with colors on my mind and they have to come out on paper. I've also lost sleep over excitement for crafting ideas too.
How fun your place setting is for friends. Would love to sit outside with you and enjoy the cooler weather.
You are so creative on everything.
Have a wonderful day friend!
