I try to get in my crafty room atleast once everyday.
3. What is the coolest tool you like to use right now?
I can't live without my Big Shot!
4. Are you a midnight stamper or an early bird stamper?
neither, I stamp a lot during the day, but also in the evening.  I turn into a pumpkin at 10pm!!
5. Do you sell your retired stamps or hang/hoard onto them like me?
well I only buy the stamp sets I really love and plan to use over and over again.  With that in mind, for the first time this year, I did sell off some of my really old retired sets to make room for new ones.  It was really hard to do too!
6. What can you never have enough of...DSP? Ribbon? Baker's Twine? Buttons, etc...
Candy dots, is the one things right now I really love.  They are so fun to add and decorate a project with.
7. Where do you craft?
I turned a spare bedroom into my craftroom!  But I really need the whole downstairs to be my craftroom!!

 8. How do you organize your stamps?
Right now I organize them in "abc" order.  Its really easy for me to go and pull it right off the shelf.

 9  What organizational tool do you have that you would recommend?
A have two, a good rack to store and organize my cardstock by color and a wooden unit that holds all my stamp pads with matching pen and ink refill right next to it.

 10. Which Season is your favorite to make cards for?
I would have to say Fall.  I love the rich colors and to decorate with leaves.

 11. What is your favorite technique to create with?
I don't really have just one, but one that I tried recently and enjoyed was the "herringbone technique"

Again, thank you so much Annette for choosing me for a Liebster Award!
