Last week we featured Katies Nesting Spot as the blog of the week. We're honored to have her answer a few questions about crafting and blogging. Be sure to check out her blog here: http://katiesnestingspot.blogspot.com/
What are your favorite projects to do with your children?
When did you start crafting?My favorite part of teaching was always the art project tie-ins to learning, so the start of my teaching career is when my passion for art and children's crafts began. Now that I have my own, I can't wait to get into all sorts of fun with her. I began seriously scrapbooking in 2004 after I came back from Hawaii with hundreds of pictures I wanted to organize and share. Scrapbooking is still my primary crafting outlet, but I have just begun learning how to sew and am incorporating more fabric into projects, that's been a lot of fun too.
Interesting fact(s) about you?I was adopted from Korea, and even though I wasn't carried by my mom I definitely got my crafty side from her!
Favorite craft product(s)?I love patterned paper, dimensional adhesive, my die cut machine(s) and dies, my scalloped circle punch, ribbon, felt, and of course...Mod Podge! Often my solution to things is to slap on a layer of it!
Favorite types of crafting?Papercrafting and crafting for and with children
Biggest inspirations?My Mom who has knitted a bunch of cute baby hats and sweater for my little one, and who also crochets, draws, and used to tole paint as well as my Godmother who knits and cross stitches. She makes wall hangings and pillow fronts that are adorable.
How long have you been blogging?Just a few months, only since the middle of December 2008. I'd been a wanna be blogger for a year previously, but was afraid to put my stuff out there. It's been wonderful how quickly and nicely the blogging community has welcomed me.
When do you have time to craft?Mainly naptime, in the evening when my husband can watch her, and after the little munchkin is asleep. I also squeeze in a little time when she's busy or having free play. Then I get all my stuff and work on quick little tasks like cutting out shapes or embroidering from the kitchen where I can see her.
