Christmas Leftovers Top Talent

Welcome back to another Top Talent spotlight at Our Creative Corner!

This month we are shining the spotlight on the winner of the Christmas Leftovers Challenge that was hosted back in January by Pamellia!

Pamellia selected Sara as her winner and so we are thrilled to be welcoming her as this months Top Talent!!!

 Before we show you Sara's wonderful creation,  let's just spend some time finding out a little bit more about this creative lady..... 

 1. Where do you live?

 I live 15 minutes from the most beautiful beach on the Eastern shore of USA in Wilmington, NC.

2. Are you a spring, summer, winter or fall person? Do you feel you create better in that season? 

 I am a "fall person" with out a doubt! I can safely say my creativity peaks during the fall--just look at my prolific Halloween posts!

3. How would you describe your art for the general population audience if they have never seen it before? 

I let my kids answer this for me and they said "FAB U LOUSSSSS!" Seriously, I would say mixed media vintage/eclectic.

4. What, if anything, do you consistently draw inspiration from? 

Nature, yard and estate sale cast offs and Tim Holtz' blog--not just from him, but from all the bloggers who enter his challenges.

5. What is the one tool you couldn't do without? distressheatinkblendingtoolsandtweezerspapertrimmerwaterpen.

6. How do you spend your time when not crafting? 

 Cleaning up the mess I've just made, taking care of my spiritual self, my family, my home/garden, gardening, going to every yard and estate sale I can fit into a Saturday morning, exercising and working my 3 jobs. I also love entertaining and being with my friends. I stay busy! Did I mention Halloween--it is not a day for me-it is a 2 month event.

7. Any inspiring words you can share? 

If you love to make art or craft--DO IT! Never worry about what others think about your work--if you love what you do, others will love it, too! AND "embrace imperfection!"
