Artist Insights
What was your childhood ambition? As an avid reader, I always wanted to be an author. But that was until I discovered I couldn't write! LOL

What time is your alarm clock set to? 7:45am - but my kids are usually my alarm.

What is your idea of a perfect day? Sleeping in until 10-11. Spending the day watching movies with my family and eating delicious food that I don't have to cook! Having a little time to design and some time away with just my husband. That would be a good day!

Where do you get design inspiration? Everywhere! I find a lot of inspiration from my family, but also from colors and patterns and the little things around me. But I think the thing that inspires me most is holidays/themes. Most of my kits revolve around holidays or seasons!

What is your favorite indulgence? A long hot shower, followed by a Hersheys with Almonds candy bar!

What is your favorite TV Show? This one is a hard one because my family and I LOVE movies and tv shows! I watch way too much, but I truly love it! I guess one of my most favorite TV Shows would have to be GILMORE GIRLS.

What food do you dislike? I really don't like anything MINT flavored!

What characteristic do you despise? Disrespect and judgement of others

What is your favorite item of clothing? I love hooded sweatshirts!

What was your most memorable birthday? I don't have a very good memory! LOL But I do remember when I turned 8 years old. We were on a family vacation during my birthday and we were in Mesa Verde National Park and we stayed in at a little cabin that we could go out on the porch and see lots of wildlife. And I remember that my parents had found a blow-up cake that they presented to me and I just really got a kick out of it (I still have it!) It was the first time I was ever away from home on my birthday - but I was with my family and I remember just enjoying it!

Are you a morning or night person? Definitely a NIGHT PERSON!

What is your favorite iTune? I love lots of songs, so this one is hard too. It seems like my favorite songs change to what my mood is....but I do love CHASING CARS by Snow Patrol.

Would you bungee jump? No way - I'm totally afraid of heights.

What is your favorite ice cream flavor? Cookies and Cream - YUM!

What is the first thing you notice about a person? How friendly they are.
