creative blog hop

I was bullied/asked into taking part in the creative bloggers hop 
By the wonderful Lis
Its a continuous hop that will be every monday with lots of amazing and talented crafters 

So here is the questions 

1, What am i working on ?
Samples for a  wedding invitations ( she's not sure what she's after ) 
and one DT project 

2 , How does my work differ from others in my genre ? 
Hmmmm i dont think my work differ's from most but i always prefer to have a rubber/digi image on my creation 
i always love looking at other crafters for idea's and inspiration 


3, Why do i Write/ create what i do 
i wanted to have a hobby in the winter so that when worked slow down i had something to in the winter , But it took over my life and i dont think i could ever give it up 

4 , How does your writing/creative process work 
i always do it wrong i choose the image then colour for hours then release that i have no papers to match !!! so then i do the whole faff around my craft desk and get distracted by new pretties then i find papers that i get away with then i try to produce something that i saw on pinterest early in the week 


Now i can pick 3 wonderful bloggers who ive choose for next week 

Lucy
I met Lucy through a facebook group and she's been my rock on many a times .. ive worked with her on a few DT's and always love having a natter with her about all things crafty !!!  

Shell
Now for one of my bestest friends on facebook .. Shell is the nicest person there is she picks me up when i'm down and always has a wonderful thing to say about other's i love her style and i love working with her on all the dt's previous and past 

Lisa
Lisa is the owner of That Craft place and i stalked my way into her life about 3 years and ive bullied her from the start, i adore this women and travel all the way down to Eastbourne from Newcastle on many occasions each year .. She has an amazing shop and i'm ever so grateful to know her as a friend 


So this is me i hope you enjoyed my contribution to the creative Blog hop 
and now its the girls turn next week 

Hugs and Kisses
