Flatterday Saturday

Hey everyone! Maria today, bringing you a fabulous interview with the very 1st {ippity} incentive winner:

JEN MARIE She one of our FABULOUS {ippity} chicks. Jen Marie received the first incentive by referring a friend to sign up as an {ippity} chick. You can read about the incentives of being an {ippity} chick {HERE}!

Here is a little about Jen Marie in here own words:
Tell us a little about yourself. {Family, location, background, job, kids, etc.}
I was born and raised in Louisiana. Two years after getting married my DH and I moved to Illinois. A gal from the church we were going to invited me to a stamping workshop and I thought ~ well, I'll go so I can meet people.
Um, yeah... the rest is history! I met peeps AND found an AMAZING hobby!
We moved to Georgia two years ago and thanks to stamping and the internet/SCS I've made some amazing friends online and found a local stamping club to meet with here.
I'm hoping to meet MORE peeps now that I have {ippity}!!

How did you first get involved in stamping?
see above...

What is your stamping style?
Hmmm...that's a tough one. I don't think I really have a particular style, I think it varies.

Tell us about your creative process
It usually starts with a piece of designer paper, then I pull colors and stamps based off of the paper.

What is your favorite {ippity} stamp set and why?
Well....there's so not just one favorite, LOL! I loooove Kissmas & Mistletoe for Christmas cards...and now for winter cards.
I also love the Bible verses and font in Devoted.
I've also just discovered Alphabetically Adorable for myself, and the possibilities are just endless with that set!

Check out this project she made with
ALPHABETICALLY ADORABLEHow often do you stamp?
Just about every day!

How long does it take you to make a project you are happy with?
From 30 mins to 2 hours, LOL!

What does your craft room look like? {messy, clean, etc.}
That varies from day to day...or maybe I should say hour by hour!

What is the name of your Ippity Sales Blog?
Taylor~Made by JenMarie ~ just click on the {ippity} blinkie

What made you decide to start selling Ippity?
I have to tell you that over the last month or so before {ippity} came along... I was just ready for a change... I even talked to my DH and Mom about it.
Since moving 2 years ago (more on that below) I am now a 'stamp-at-home-wife' and wanted to do something with my stamping, would love a 'business' but how on Earth do you get started with something like that.....
I knew in an INSTANT I wanted to be a part of this from the BEGINNING!

What is your favorite quote?
Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1

What would I find in your refrigerator right now?
soy milk, chocolate syrup ~ gotta be able to make Iced Mochas!
