Blog hop nomination

Today I was nominated by the very talented and lovely Kath for a creative blog hop. I am very honoured and will nominate two other people whpo inspire me and are amazing.
The following questions were asked:
1. What am I working on?
I am currently working on my christmas cards. I always start on time as I don't like pressure. I cannot create under pressure so I like to take my time on each and every one of them.
2. How does my work differ from others in my genre?
Uhm....I don't really know. My tags, cards and mini albums are a mixture of all sorts of styles and techniques. I go through phases of certain things. One day it is stencils and the next it is flower making. Sometimes it is romantic or vintage, and the next day it is distressed and grungy.
3. Why do I create what I do?
To keep me occupied and sane. Plain and simple. I create in the first place for me. I do make cards and tags for special occasions like anniversaries and birthdays, but often enough I create for the sake of getting it out of my head so it won't keep me awake at night.
4. How does your creative process work?
It differes. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night because a design or layout pops into my head. And it won't leave me alone until I have created it. And sometimes I sit at my desk and see something that inspires me like a stamp or a die cut. Other times I just grab a tag and start inking and have no clue where it goes. It has a life of its own and I end up with a tag or card I can send to someone or give to someone. And ofcourse there are occasions where you make the personalised project for a certain person like a birthday or birth.
In any is always a surprise what I end up with....

Well here are my two nominees for the blog hop:

Tammy is an amazing artist and part of the DT of Tim Holtz and Ranger. And rightfully so. I admire her immensely and learn a lot from her tutorials.

Ryn has the most amazing detailed stamps. It is no secret that I am madly in love with her droplet and bubble stamps. They take my crafting to a next level and I am Ryn ever so grateful. Her work and designs are brilliant and next to Tim Holtz she is the reason I craft.
you really should check both of these blogs out as they are very educational and different.
Until next time,
Take care.
