Carrie (who loves my polls) sent me an email yesterday saying "I thought I'd make a "survey" type thing for YOU! I think your devoted fans wonder all the time about you and what makes you tick. :)"
Ummmm....if anyone is wondering about this old gray haired lady all the time, I can say with some degree of confidence that they need to seek professional help. I will assume that was an exaggeration to get me to answer the questions so.....all six of my devoted fans keep reading - those of you who just come for the free punch art ideas can stop reading right now and move on to the next blog.
Favorite SU color?
Easy - Chocolate Chip. I make a purposeful effort not to reach for it for every project. Everything goes with Chocolate Chip! (plus the name is just so....... yummy!)
Favorite SU stamp set?
Hard question. I assume you mean current sets? I love the bear from Under the Stars and I love Baroque Motifs (not exactly a matching set are they?) I use Cheers to You a lot. And the solid stripe is perfect for punch projects. There is just too much variety in the stamps to choose a favorite. Solid stripe sits on my desk and doesn't have another home - so maybe it is my fave?
Favorite SU punch? Only one, Ellen !!!
That is not a fair question. Did I ask you to pick a favorite from among your children? I'll narrow it down to three - Circles, Ovals and Others. Oh....., that isn't what you wanted to know?
I guess I can say that I favor the Butterfly and the Ornament because they have unique shapes that can be used so many ways. But gosh, you know I love them ALL! Wait, that is not true. I never liked that snowflake blossom that they retired and I can live without the tag corner punch. I like it but I would not mourn if it was retired.
If you were the Stampin’ Up! version of Oprah, what would you give us, your audience at Christmas, as your Favorite Things?
Confession - I don't watch Oprah's give away shows, but kiddo and I watched a few of that "other" Ellen's give-aways this past Christmas season. BUT if I was to give my audience my favorite things...it would be a years supply of cardstock, several packs of DSP, a tower of mini glue dots, ALL the SU punches and the confidence to use them creatively, a Big Shot, the texture plates and both sets of alphabet dies (and I'd throw in a bunch of ribbon too - I like ribbon.)
Worst part of being a blogger?
WORRYING about making a total fool of yourself when you put your work and your blathering out there for anybody with computer access to see
Favorite part of being a blogger?
Comments!!!!!!!! - the ones that say more than "cute project" - the ones that give me a peek into my readers personalities and lives - and the ones where I know they are actually using the ideas I'm throwing out. Email from readers is just as good as comments!
When you’re not punching, you’re_________.
Reading blogs? Eating out? Running Errands? Helping the aging parental folk? 80% of the time it would be one of these four.
A punch you’d like to see introduced in an upcoming catalogue?
I am open to anything - I made disparaging mental comments about the ornament punch when it came out (that's stupid - it is so limited- etc.) Ha - proved my own self wrong on that. So I'll take whatever they give and bad mouth it a little so that I can learn to love it like the ornament. I'd suggest a primitive heart, a crown, a teardrop and a HAND. I need hands in assorted sizes 'cause that is absolutely the hardest part of my characters. I don't think I'll get that last request but maybe....
