Hey everyone! I'm here today doing something a little different on my blog. This week I am participating in a "Get to Know Me Blog Hop." Several bloggers have recently started sharing a little about themselves and their hobby and then tag a few people to do the same on their blogs. I was tagged by Laura at Crafty Chicks Creating.
I am tagging two of my favorite crafty bloggers to do the same next week, so be sure to check them out:
Michelle at Cricut Crazy Scrapper (I love her layouts...they always give me inspiration!)
Mayra at Mayra's Designs (She creates the most beautiful 3D projects ever!)
So here's a little about me and my hobby and what I've been working on:
I am mostly a scrapbooker as you can probably tell from the amount of layouts I make versus cards. I do love to make tags and cute 3D boxes. Oh yeah and I love making treat bags! I just recently made this cute cupcake tag for some treats I sent to a blogger friend in Florida as part of something called The Leftover's Club.
In addition to my craft blog, I also have a food blog: Diary of a Recipe Collector
So how does my work differ from others and why do I create what I do?
Like I mentioned, I am primarily a scrapbooker. I make layouts with kid and family themes. I create layouts for my kids' albums. My older two kids have albums for each year of their first few years. Since this has become overwhelming to keep up with having 4 kids, I am now going to make sure my little ones have their own first year album, and start just making a combination family album for the rest of my pictures.
I truly love creating these layouts. It is so rewarding when I see my older two kids pull out their baby albums and look at them! That is what makes me keep making them.
How does your writing and creating process work?
I am a huge fan of the Cricut Craftroom. I love how I can change my colors and see what works. I can completely design what I want before I even cut anything. This makes the actual creating process quicker for me.
I am also a huge fan of Pinterest. When I am stumped or in a creative rut, I just look at my Pinterest board and get inspired! You can follow all my boards here or just follow my scrapbooking board here.
Well I've enjoyed sharing a little bit about my blogging life with you! Be sure to check out Michelle and Mayra next week!
