Where is the first place you look for inspiration?
I love patterns, so I usually find inspiration in quilts and even advertisements! I love to use those like a sketch to spark an idea. Sometimes even interior design can be a great source to get that first idea flowing!
What is your go-to, must have tool?
Definitely my sewing machine or Silhouette Cameo.
If you had an extra half hour in the day, what would you do?
No doubt, sleep!
What is your favourite colour combination to craft with? To decorate with?
Teal or Aqua some how usually shows up on every project that I create. That and a little touch of black to ground out the other colors in my project. I love bright and bold colors and patterns, so the black helps greound it.
If you could have one super power, which would you choose?
The ability to intake as many calories as I wanted without gaining a pound! HAHA!
