1. What is your favorite CRAFT book?
How do I pick a favorite? that depends on my mood for a day I LOVE all of my books and I have many - so right now I would have to pick Creative Embellishment by Sherrill Kahn. But then there is....

1.A. What is it about that book that makes you love it so much? I love texture, bits of bling, antique looking, versatality and technique'

2. What is your favorite NON-CRAFT book?

The Invitation by Oriah Mountain Dreamer

3. What is your current project?

I am making a copper chain patina that I will later make into a necklace after adding beads and ribbon. Also working on pages for a fat book swap, a few button fairy's, a fairy in a bottle necklace, and thinking about vaccuming but that is like last on the list. These things I will do today.

4. What "craft/technique" is next on your list of "to-do's"

Undecided on that, I will get some inspiration one day and just do it. I never really plan unless I am in a particular challenge or swap.

5. What do you make to give as gifts?

Most all of my stuff is given as gifts, if I kept it all I would have no room to live.

6. What do you make for yourself?

Not much, my journal is mine and mine alone but I welcome eyes to view it. Sometimes I will paint a picture but they too usually get gleened by a family member.

7. What is your favorite place to get inspiration?

Places like this website (which I love) my Yahoo groups, the ladies are so talented and interesting. I get alot from nature too but lately it has been too hot in FL to go for walks in the wood so in the fall that will be my goal.

8. Do you make your own greeting/holiday cards?

A few, although last year I made alot of them to send to the troops via Cynthia Powell of the Lattest Trends Yahoo Group.

9. What is your favorite thing that inspires you?

Shinny things, lacy things, leaves and flowers, lots of texture.

10. What music are you listening to now?

Blackmore's Night Beyond the Sunset beautiful fairy music.

11. What holiday do you craft mostly for?

Christmas because of the colors mostly and that is when I need more gifts!

12. What topic/technique would you like to have a book on?

Another hard one to answer. I think right now it would be something new and different that I haven't tried before such as beading the swarovski crystals and a way to use them other than jewelry because I wouldn't wear something like that but I would use it in an art quilt or painted, deliciously layered collage.

13. Who in the crafting world inspires you most?

My fellow artist, who are encouraging, helpful, innovative and charming. I also get inspiration from the faces of people on the street.

14. Taken from Ravelry, What is your favorite curse word? (just cause I love this question!)

LOL gollygoshgeewhiz! well I can curse like a well honed sailor but try not to. I think I would have to pick "dammit" because that is the first word I remember being corrected about and my sister and I still laugh about that today. I don't know is "fart" considered a cuss word? because that one seems to make everyone in the world laugh!
