Had a little bit of time so I thought I would share my answers to your fun questions....

1. Do you work and if so what do you do?

Besides running Scrapbook Bakery, I also work with my husband. He has a full time job but I work with him regarding our two rental homes, which take a lot of work. He is the handyman and I do the paperwork and contact tenants and handle payments. My husband also just started a cleaning business and we start our first job in a week or two. So I am a busy gal. :)

2. What is your all time favorite movie?

This one is tough. I guess I will have to say Dirty Dancing. I remember watching that when it first came out a MILLION times! My parents bought me a total of three copies b/c I would wear out the VHS tapes! Remember the VHS tape days?! lol

3. What is the one scrapping product you can't live without, aside from the obvious things like adhesives?

I would have to say it is my stamps. I am constantly stamping on my layouts and cards.

4. Do you prefer sweet of savoury foods?

I like them both but if I have to pick one, I would pick sweet. I definitely have a sweet tooth. :)

5. I would like to know how you organize your scrap space...

Stacie, a video of my scrap space will be coming soon but I will tell you that my space is very organized. I like to have a home for everything and I hate clutter.

6. How often do you scrap? Is it everyday?

I scrap quite a lot. It really depends on what I have going on. Some weeks I will do something creative everyday and then other weeks I will not even go in my studio b/c I just finished a huge project and need to feel inspired again. It probably averages to 3-4 times a week.

7. What do you do on rainy days?

You might think that I scrap but I usually don't. I feel most inspired when it is bright and sunny. (I know, makes no sense. lol) Today it is pouring rain and I have the day off so I will probably spend the day in my p.j.'s, do some cleaning around the house, read more of my Twilight series, and catch up on some shows that I have on DVR.

8. I just watched your video on how to stamp with acrylic paint, and I am wondering how you clean your stamps afterwards?

Great question. I usually just use some baby wipes. However, when using acrylic paint you need to work a bit quicker. If you do not get the paint off right away with a baby wipe and it dries, then you'll need to use some soap and water with a paper towel.

9. I would like to know what YOU think the lasting trends will be? You know how things come and go- what will stick?

A couple of things come to mind. I'm not sure if they are "trends" or not but I do think that scallops are not going anywhere. I think for some reason adding scallops to any project, whether it's a scallop border, scallop circle, or scallop square, gives it a finished look. Also, I don't think that the home die-cutting machines are going anywhere and are only going to get more advanced. I also think that digital scrapbooking will get bigger and bigger. I love my paper and glue but I wouldn't mind learning how to do a few things and that is big since I am not a technology advanced kinda gal. lol

Thanks for asking such great questions. I'll be back soon with some creative shares....
