Contestant
:

Who was your favorite celebrity as a child?
Zack Morris

What is your favorite color?
Eggplant purple

What word describes you best?
multi-tasker

What is your greatest accomplishment?
My marriage and my daughter Alaire.

What drives you every day?
Taking care of my family and trying to cross SOMETHING off that never ending list

What is your favorite food?
black bean and corn salsa with tortilla chips

Where do you like to vacation?
Anywhere warm with a sandy beach... which reminds me I haven't been to one recently!!

Who do you admire?
My mother for bringing out my creativity as a child. It is something I hope to give to my children.

If you were invisible, where would you go?
Martha Stuart's Craft Room. Then I would take my invisible Santa's Sack and fill it to the brim : )

What is the kindest thing anyone has done for you?
My husband loves me unconditionally, even when I put everything on the back burner for one of my projects.

What would you do with a million dollars?
I would pay off my student loans and take my husband on a ridiculous vacation.

If you had three hours to yourself, what would you do with them?
would take a bath and go shopping for myself without any diaper bags, baby bjiorns, or making of bottles. Then I would probably swing by Cold Stone on my way home for a birthday cake remix..mmmmhhh And if I could get an extension I would take a nap.

Star:

Who was your favorite celebrity as a child?
The only person I can think of is Candace Cameron (Kirk's little sister) from Full House. Kind of embarrassing. She and I were around the same age and she had to go through that awkward tween stage on TV.

What is your favorite color?
I love navy blue and orange. Not necessarily together.

What word describes you best?
Besides "crafty" I would describe myself as gf er54eg xs <-- ha ha, my 1 year-old described me that way. :) I would describe myself as laid back, I guess. People tell me I am laid back. I know, that's two words. Also not that exciting, but there it is. What is your greatest accomplishment?
I was really excited when I got in the Internet Movie Database (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1677046/). Craft-wise, I was included in Blog.com's top Craft blogs, and Apartment Therapy chose my blog as one of 10 Craft Blogs We Love.

Hopefully, there are still a lot of accomplishments ahead!

In my personal life, having three boys and surviving every day with my sanity is an accomplishment!

What drives you every day?
I started blogging because I love writing, and it was excited to have an audience that actually commented. Competition with myself drives me, having lots of ideas and the rush of seeing them carried out drives me. Coming up with clever and simple ideas, sharing cool craft projects, and the sheer joy of creating drives me.

What is your favorite food?
Take me out to sushi for my birthday, followed by a schmancy chocolate dessert and a cup of coffee, and I'll be really happy.

Where do you like to vacation?
I went on a Caribbean cruise once and it was awesome! I also love going on road trips (but not really as a mom... I don't want to entertain crying kids on the road!). One of my most memorable trips was to Moab, UT - such a beautiful place. I also love Washington, D.C.

Who do you admire?
I admire George Washington Carver because he spent a ton of energy focusing on one object (the peanut) and came up with so many amazing uses for it. Imagine if we focused that much attention on one craft supply?! I admire Lindsey from Filth Wizardry (http://filthwizardry.com) because she comes up with the most innovative craft projects. I admire Anne-Marie Faiola from Brambleberry.com because she started a crafty business that has seen amazing growth, she's a kind and wise person, and she takes time to interact with her fans.

If you were invisible, where would you go?
Somewhere quiet with a Snickers bar.

What is the kindest thing anyone has done for you?
Most recently, Rosalie of UnanimousCraft.com and Rachel of Swap-Bot.com matched funds when I was raising money to print my craft magazine. That was kind and unexpected.

What would you do with a million dollars?
I would donate some of it, spend a bit, and save the rest, hopefully. But if I wasn't being smart like that, I would make a really low-budget movie.

If you had three hours to yourself, what would you do with them?
Get invisible, find a quiet place, and eat a Snickers bar. Just kidding! I would re-organize my desk and craft area because they are really scary! No, I'd get a massage and pedicure! Go shopping all by myself?

  2. I just want to say, since filling out this questionnaire, I have gone on a 10 hour road trip with my three boys and they did great, so let the record stand that I WOULD want to go on a road trip with them as a mom. :)

Where I am no longer blogging, this blog is for reading purposes only. I am afraid I just can't keep up with it anymore, therefore, I may not be able to reply to all comments. Thank you.
