{ippity} Blossom Flatter Day

Today is part two of our new Blog series, {ippity} Blossom! We will still be hosting our Flatter Day Post on Saturday, but our feature will be on the {ippity} Blossom of the week. We kicked off this new series on Tuesday with Jen Marie. It was sooo great seeing her info and some of her beautiful work. Today we'll dig a little deeper and learn a bit more about her and take a look at some of her FAVE {ippity} projects.

General Questions

  • 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. Seven years after that we moved to Georgia where we are currently. We have one furbaby and she is quite a handful.

  • How did you first get involved in stamping?
    When we moved to IL, a gal from the church 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 three years ago and thanks to stamping and the internet/SCS I've made some amazing friends online and found a local stamping club.I'm hoping to meet MORE peeps now that I have {ippity}!!

  • 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. However, I'm really liking the vintage look!

  • Tell us about your creative process
    It usually starts with a particular stamp or set that I want to use, then I pull paper and embellishments based on the 'feel' I want for the project.

  • What is your favorite {ippity} stamp set and why?
    Totally Happy. I am just in LOVE with the bird/fence image!

  • How often do you stamp?
    Just about every day!

  • How long does it take you to make a project you are happy with?
    I'd say my average is an hour. Sometimes more - depends on if I have the finished project in mind or just seeing when the project leads me.

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

{ippity} Chicks

  • What is the name of your Ippity Sales Blog?
    Taylor~Made by JenMarie

  • 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.....THEN.... {IPPITY} WAS ANNOUNCED!I knew in an INSTANT I wanted to be a part of this from the BEGINNING

  • Tell us about your experience selling Ippity
    It has been so much fun! I've met so many fabulous stampers from all over the world!

Just for FUN

  • 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 frappes
  • What would your dream vacation be?
    A quiet relaxing beach!
