Thanks for sharing some more about yourself and your creative process. 
I'll keep my eyes open for the sheep :)
I understand the felting wool will shrink in hot water and fibres will become like a piece of felt fabric - someone correct me if I'm not right.
Congrats frommycraftroom! Email me at janebeljo@yahoo.ca and thank you to all who commented! :)




Hello!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend! :)

The wonderful and super talented Ange tagged me for the Creative Blog Hop and I'm quite flattered that she thought of me! :)
So here we go!


1.What creative projects are you currently working on?

I'm currently and always working on new stamp set ideas...here's a peek of one of my sketches for an up coming set! :)


It's all about sheep and wool for me this month! ;)

I've got many projects on my to do list which includes lots of crochet projects. I bought this yarn (100% wool) thinking it would be perfect for a scarf but when I got home and read the label it said Felting wool and I'm thinking it's not a good idea for a scarf (I'm pretty sure something happens to the wool once washed)...so I decided to make a little added cushion for my chair (at my desk)...I have just enough yarn to make it...keep my butt warm! :)


I'm doing the bean stitch.




2.What inspires your designs?

Many things inspire my designs (I'm talking about my stamp sets)...my kids, nature, even my design team. I had former DT member Amy in mind when I did Life is Good (she loves mason jars...at least she did back then when I drew it), Doodle Flowers ll I had Aga in mind and Hello Friend was inspired by my kids. This also applies for my card making...other card designers, pinterest and home decor magazine give me loads of inspiration.





3.What method / process (if applicable) do you apply to each of your creative projects, and how long does each project take to complete?

I don't even know how to answer this...I don't have a method. I have a vision in my head and I try to recreate it. Is that a method? :) One thing I do though is when I just have no mojo I will stamp a bunch of images and colour them (colouring relaxes me like crocheting does) and then when I do have an idea it really comes in handy having pre coloured stamped images all ready to be used.





4.If you had to describe your 'signature' style, what would it be?

Probably cute. 






5. What are 3 crafting products/tools you can't live without?

Scissors, Graph'it markers and my Fiskars cutting board.


So that's it....and now I'm in trouble! Everyone I have tried to tag has already been tagged!!! I am still looking and will update here on this post who the next crafter is.
Also I wanted to do a little giveaway...



I chose to give TEArrific to giveaway because Ange created an awesome card for the JD blog today using this set. So if you'd like to win this set leave a comment and I'll announce the winner tomorrow! :) Good luck!

That is a cute "knitting sheep" you are creating. Looking forward to seeing the whole set!

I always love learning about other crafty people! Whenever I see knitting sheep, I am reminded of a super fun multiplication book for children, "Amanda Bean's Amazing Dream!" Super fun image and great use of your wool yarn!
