Now, let's get to know Jenn a little better!!
What is your favorite craft medium? paper... all kinds of paper!
What is your favorite scrap item/tool? My Circle Scissors Plus - I love circles.
What is your favorite paper line/company? Stampin' Up!
What is your favorite color(s)? I love bright colors - purples and pinks and greens, anything bright
How do you have your scraproom decorated? Colors, themes, homey, contempo, etc. I am lucky enough to have a spare room dedicated to my crafting. I have orange beaded curtains hanging up and the room is decorated with my artwork. It's definitely homey!
Are you an animal person? Do they have a place in your scraproom? I have 2 cats - they do not have a place in my stamp room - I do not like flying fur stickin' to my stuff! LOL
What is your favorite Disney movie? Do you watch TV/Movies while working? Do you get your inspiration from them? My favorite Disney movie is Alice in Wonderland! I do not watch movies while working, but I do get my inspiration from everything around me. I cannot watch movies or TV, look at magazines or ads, without thinking "I could make a card like that...." :)
Sweet or Savory snacks? Do I have to choose one or the other?? My 2 favorite snacks are Snyder Buffalo Wing Flavored pretzel pieces and Reese's peanut butter eggs.
Scary or Romantic movies? Scary - but not bloody, gory scary! I like creepy, makes-you-think-scary!
Beach or Snow vacations? Oh definitely beach. I live in New England - I get enough snow.
Favorite type of music? Rock, hard rock.
I am 38 years old. My husband's name is Jeremy and we have 2 kids. Our son Trevor is 16 1/2 and our daughter Cassidy will be 15 next month. I work full-time during the week as the Bursar of a small local private college. I also volunteer with an organization called Audrey's Umbrella (http://www.braintrust.org/umbrella.htm) - we send "happy mail" to patients who are battling brain tumors. I use a lot of the cards I create for this purpose. I have been stamping and making cards for 8 years now. I absolutely love making cards, but I also enjoy making things like bookmarks, magnets, and tea-bag cards. I also enjoy altering items. The time I spend in my craft room is like my therapy - it leaves me feeling relaxed and accomplished!
