The Creative Blog Hop

I'm a bit late with this post, I scheduled it, but must have forgotten something....better late than never though.

My tagger is the talented Liz at the Crafty Sunflower, go and check her lovely projects, I think we met at Pixie's Snippets Playground at first.

My Interview:
I'm a science teacher by heart and soul, and also in charge for the educational development at our small school. I've worked with small children up to the adults I meet nowadays. I believe that I learnt most from the 6 year olds, they didn't hesitate to tell their minds. I love my work as I can't never tell in advance what will happen during the day, when you work with people there's always something you learn or need to do. 

Welcome to my craftroom:
My craftroom is in our walk in closet, not so girly of me, but there's room for a table with a sewing machine, paper cutter and the beloved Cuttlebug. Some shelves for boxes with embossing powders, dies and embellies. An Ikea drawer storage for all the stamps. I keep the papers on a shelf in a wardrobe where we also keep our clothes, I could do with some more place for the clothes though. Crafty stuff goes first!!!

What Am I working on now?
A card for the Less is more challenge, chocolate and mint, I got an idea, we'll see tomorrow if I succeeded.

How does my work differ from others in my genre?
I can't really tell, I like a clean look, colours and nature and I like to surprise by trying something new.

Why do I create what I do?
My work can make me feel that I've done enough for the day, but that's why I craft, it's me and all the lovely crafty stuff, it gives a lot of pleasure and peace of mind. I'm a better person if I get some crafting and exercise done and get my daily square or more of chocolate.

How does my creative process work?
Often I get inspiration from fellow bloggers and try to mimic something, often ending up with something completely different. So I'm like a crow, stealing lovely new shiny ideas and making arranging them in my way. Sometimes I success to case a card.

Would you like to be tagged and write a post Monday the 15 September? Tell me and I'll add your name to this post.

Warm hugs and love
