Here are my answers to Kathy's questions:
1. How long have you been crafting?  I have been doing crafts of some kind since I was a young girl and my Grandmother taught me to crochet. I started scrapbooking and card making in 1998 after going to a CTMH home party. I have been "addicted" ever since.
2. What's your favorite product? I have so many favorites, I can't list just one: my Big Shot, Silhouette Cameo, MFT dies & Stamps, Verve Stamps & dies; SU products, etc. etc. :)
3. How much time do you spend each week making cards and things? Usually a couple of hours a day or when I can.
4. What are your favorite challenges to play in? Seize the Birthday, Dynamic Duos, Christmas Stampin All Year Long, Merry Monday,  My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge, Verve challenges, and Just Us Girls.
5. If you were to learn a new technique, what would it be? I think I would like to try Mixed Media
6. What got you blogging? My friend has a blog and she encouraged me to start a blog.
7. Where do you get your inspiration? Other bloggers, Pinterest, Splitcoast Stampers
8. If you could only use one stamp set and one die, what would they be? I don't know if I could pick just one but I like Stampin Up Secret Garden stamp set and matching dies.
9. What advice would you give someone just starting to craft?  I think I would tell them to have fun and enjoy it, no matter which craft it is.
10. What's your favorite color combo?  I like pinks & browns and blues & browns.
