I've been tagged

Diana has tagged me:

1. If you could have £100 worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments, which would you choose?

Definitely scrapbook papers, because they can be used for any papercrafting, whether it's LOs or cards.

2. If you had to choose between using only stamps or rubons, which would you choose?

Definitely stamps. I do use rub ons, but get frustrated with them because they don't all rub on as easily as they should - and sometimes it's not easy to get hold of the better ones. As for stamps, my collection is growing and growing and I love the fact that you can do so many different things with them.

3. If you knew how to do both awesome cards and layouts but could only do one for a whole year...which would you do?

That's a difficult one. A year or two ago, there would be no contest, because I only used to make cards. I still don't really consider myself to be a scrapper, but I enjoy what I do. However, I would have to opt for cards, because I enjoy making them, sending them and sell quite a few to raise money for charities.

4. Would you rather own a scrapbooking store or have your own scrapping room at home...(can't have both he he he)

I'm fortunate enough to have had our spare room fitted out for me to have a place to craft, especially as we are only in a small two-bedroomed maisonette. I'd have to say scrapping room (and selfishly I wouldn't mind it being a lot bigger than what I've got already). I haven't got the health and strength to contemplate a scrapbooking store.

5. And last but not least, what is your CURRENT cardmaking or scrapping style.

I think this is a very difficult question to answer. I tend to do all sorts of styles (partly because I know that people have different tastes) and partly because I know I'd get bored if I stuck to one sort of style. Having said that, I think recently I've done a lot more stamping than I used to, and I love using alcohol inks and experimenting.

Thanks, Diana, for an interesting tag.

I'm tagging in return:

Bumbleberries CJ

I needed to do my DLO on Jackie's super CJ that is being passed around the group on Bumbleberries. The subject is 'what makes me smile' - and, while there are plenty of people and things in life that do make me smile, we are going through sad times that make it quite difficult at the moment.

But there's nothing like a bit of crafting to 'take you out of yourself' and so I've got on with this this morning and this is the result:

HS:MS drawer

'Hve you a favourite drawer - be it messy or tidy? I have lots of the two! So show us'

This was an easy one today. This drawer is my favourite (and the tidiest) in the room where I craft. The room was specially fitted out a couple of months ago and (theoretically) there is a place for everything.

I keep thinking I should take some pictures of my newly fitted room, but it hasn't yet been decorated - hopefully very soon - so think I might wait till then.
