1) In your own words describe your unique style and creative aesthetic?
My style is a little all over the place. I like a little bit of everything, from modern farmhouse to contemporary, and try to use them here and there in my home.
2) When starting a new project, what is your creative process?
I basically just start and create as I go. I don't have much of a “process,” and sometimes, projects will turn out totally better than I had planned in my head!
3) Out of the creative people you have worked with, who is it that you respect and admire the most?
My fellow DIY and craft bloggers always blow me away with their creativity. I admire all of their hard work and dedication, and love seeing all of the new and fabulous things they create. They inspire and challenge me in new ways and help keep my creativity flowing!
4) When looking for inspiration is there a particular thing you do to get inspired?
I'm a total Pinterest junky, and when I'm in need of a little inspiration, I actually search through Pinterest for similar ideas to spark my creativity.
5) What has brought you to this point in your career? And what is your advice for people looking to follow in your footsteps?
Dedication and passion have brought me to where I am now. There are days I feel like giving up, but my passion for creating drives and helps remind me why I started my blog in the first place. My advice is to not compare yourself to others; you are unique!
