Some fun questions for the inquiring minds...

• • • • •

What did you want to be when you grew up?
"An artist! I never really had any big plans, I just wanted to make art. Now I have my own blog, design for multiple companies, been published, and have my own etsy shop! It's a great life! Although at one point I did consider both a scuba diver and a flight attendant. ;)"

Coke or Pepsi???

"Well, I don't actually drink cokes, I'm a tea drinker!
But, I'm from Texas, so I call them all *Cokes*."

What inspires you?
"Colors are my main inspiration, as well as pinterest, books, other artists and nature. I could stare up at the stars all the time and be inspired."

What is the TOP thing to do on your "Bucket LIST"?

Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska — The Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, shines above Bear Lake.

"Visit Alaska! This is something I've wanted to do since I was a kid and hopefully it will happen sooner rather than later. I also want to see the Northern Lights."

If you could print any phrase
on a T-shirt, what would it say?
"Wow, so many options! You don't actually want me to choose, do you??  I'm a total nerd though, so it would probably be a reference to Star Trek or some other geeky thing. Although I don't have any "crafting" themed shirts so I guess I could do an art themed shirt."

If you could mold ANYTHING with
Amazing Mold Putty, what would it be?

"As I mentioned before, I'm a tea drinker!
It might be neat to make little tea cups!"

What style of music gets your creative juices going?
"My music tastes are a bit all over the place. My *favorite* music to listen to while I create would have to be film scores, like the sound tracks for epic movies like Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, etc. However I also love 60's, 80's, Classical, Techno, Musicals, etc. Like I said, I like a bit of everything, except maybe country."
