I'm actually going to do this in a Q&A format because otherwise I will run off at the keyboard and you will be asleep before bed time...
What are you working on at the moment?
In true Autumnal style, I'm actually working on Christmas cards for workshops. Here's one for this week. I will soon be very fed up with Christmas greetings and in all likelihood, will not bother to make any cards to send as some sort of ridiculous counter-reaction.

Truly it does not. I'm in the cutting and sticking section of the 'genre', a true follower, often very late to even pick up on a trend. I cannot even pretend that anything I make is out of the ordinary. The nearest claim I can make really is that I STILL prefer wood mounted rubber stamps, and that is very likely to set me apart. A bit.
Why do you create?
Oh because making your own cards and scrapbooking is so much cheaper than buying commercial cards and creating online albums. Said no card maker ever. I erm, 'create' because I can. Seriously...it makes me happy.
How does your creative process work?
Well, first of all I get all the necessary chores done, then I whine about not having any time to myself and then I sit at my desk and wish I knew what to make, then I get an idea and I spend three hours trying to force it out of my head and onto card stock. Then, when that fails to bring about art, I make a five minute card in an effort to justify my time wasting selfishness. It's a process, it's just a bit ugly and has nothing about it that could redeem me in the face of real artists. The secret? Use great tools....here's proof:
