Creative Blog Hop

Last week I had the pleasure of being asked by the sweet and talented Niki Garcia of Stampin' HI to participate in the Creative Blog Hop. 

I love Niki's work! And I'm not the only one-- she's been recognized many times around blog-land and even has several publications to her name! Such an honor :) 

Alright, so now time for the Q&A: 

About Me: 

I'm a married mother of two cats and a dog living on the beautiful island of Oahu. I'm a nurse practitioner by day (and evening and sometimes night too!), and when I'm not out exploring my surroundings, you'll find me stamping away. My mom was my enabler and got be addicted to stamping in the summer of 2012 while by husband was away with the Army-- and I was never able to kick the habit once he got back ;) And as they say, the rest is history! 

And now for the real questions from the Creative Hop: 

1. What am I working on? 
I'm working on a lot of things...mainly maintaining a better work-life balance. I've found that my job seems to leave little room for much extra, and stamping often gets put on the back burner. I'm hoping that as I become more settled, I'll find more time for creating :) As for my crafty endeavors, I'm working on my next video for Lawn Fawn-- stay tuned for next week! 

2. How does my work differ from others of its genre? 
Hmm...this is a tough question. I'm not really sure my work differs in the sense that it's particularly unique. That being said, I try not to get bogged down in whatever is trending and just keep making things that I like. And hope that others subsequently like or find inspiration in my work :) 

3. Why do I create what I do? 
This is easy. Because stamps are so. freakin'. addicting. 'Nuff said. 

4. How does your creative process work? 
Hmm, probably by shopping. Lol. I love to look at crafty things at the store and often find inspiration in being at those stores. It's been particularly difficult since moving to Hawaii, because there aren't many craft stores like there were in Virginia. I miss Michael's and Joann's and my local stamp stores, so that's been difficult. But hopefully I'll take a trip back to the Mainland soon and will definitely be hitting up the stores while I'm there! 

Okay, that's it! Now it's time to link to the next blog. 

I'll be tagging my very dear friend, Allison, from 1 Happy Crafter. 

Allison and I used to live across the street from each other and also work together. Needless to say, we saw a lot of each other! We have lots in common other than stamping, so I miss seeing her and spending time shopping and card making with her! I know you'll enjoy her blog :) 

Alright that's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by!
