Welcome back to
Our Creative Corner
And do we we have a real treat for you on Top Talent Thursday, you are all going to be inspired by Jenny's project today, who was our winner of the 'Kissing Technique' Challenge.
So I have the privilege of introducing and congratulating, Jenny-(pushingtherightbuttons)
for being selected as our Top Talent
and for contributing such wonderful creativity to
Before we showcase her project, we'd like to share some questions and
answers that we put to her. So we'll turn the stage over to her now.
1. Where do you live?
I live in Staffordshire in the UK. It is known as the 'Heart of
the Country' and is one of the best places I have lived. Surrounded by
the National Forest and with the Peak District on the doorstep, it's the
perfect place to enjoy the 'great outdoors'. We live next to a major
canal, which is fun as there are always plenty of boats carrying
visitors, and are often greeted with the wonderful smells of malting
from the local brewery:) Am I selling it to you?
2. If you could only use three craft supplies for the rest of your life, what would they be?
Just three? That's cruel! I guess inks, stamps and embossing
folders are my essentials, but there are so many others that come really
close, like my new diffusers.
3. Markers or chalk?
4. What colour inspires your creativity?
Hmmm, got a bit of a thing about colour. It's always the first
thing that attracts me to a completed project or piece of art. If pushed
I'd say my favourite is Teal. I'm more of a cool colour girl.
5. Describe one thing you really enjoy about the challenges at Our Creative Corner.
I enjoy the challenges at Our Creative Corner because the themes
are different from others and unrestricted by having to use specific
products (you can bet I don't have what's required in those cases). Of
course the Design Team inspiration is always outstanding too, always
useful if Mr Mojo has done a disappearing act!
6. How long have you been crafting and what made you start crafting?
I've been crafting in one way or another all my life; creating
paper dolls at home and drawing a lot at school; making my own clothes
as a teen; completing sewing, tapestry and cross stitch projects for the
home; and even now I knit sporadically. However, papercrafting became
something of 'obsession' about two years ago. With the help of various
family members I have traced our family history back, in some cases to
the 1600's and wanted to record my findings in an accessible way. That
started me scrapping, which lead to getting a card making kit, which
lead to playing with anything else I can get my hands on now!
(We can all relate to the word obsession!)
7. What is your favourite holiday/event to make crafts for?
My favourite crafting season has to be Christmas because there is a
definite destination for my efforts. I'm the sort of crafter that has
to make something for a reason - cards to send, pots to hold things,
bags to hold pressies, you know the type of thing. I just don't have the
space to store lots of projects made for the sake of it, and anyway,
the joy of creating is partly the doing and partly in sharing it with
others. All my Christmas tags this year will make it onto the front of
cards for family and friends.
(A person after my own heart!
