Happy Saturday it's Stephanie here to finish our feature on the fabulous Rona Mallard!!! It's always so nice to get to know these amazing Ippity Chicks a little more!!!
I have been married to the best guy ever for 24 years and have two gorgeous daughters, 21 and 16. I owned Stamps & Scrapbooks in Jackson, Missouri for 91/2 years and loved every single minute of it. I am now working full time for the University Autism Center. It is a great job and has been a blessing in my life!
How Did You Get Involved In Stamping?
I started scrapbooking about 14 years ago and my sister started stamping about the same time. We lived a long distance from each other and when she came to visit me several months later, we introduced each other to our “hobbies” and we both became addicted to both!!
What Is Your Stamping Style?
I think my style is “girly” I love all things flowery and pretty. I do lots of shabby chic but also like fun and cute and clean and simple styles too. (and most of the time they are so mixed together you can’t tell what style I am!!)
What Is Your favorite Ippity Stamp and Why?
I Love Devoted because I love having those scripture stamps!! The images are adorable too!!
Tell Us About Your Creative Process.
I usually try to do a little something almost every day but with working full time and other activities it is hard. When I have a little free time I just sit down pull out some fun papers and see what happens. Most of the time I start with the paper I want to use then choose stamps and embellishments that go with the particular mood I am in.
How Often Do You Stamp?
Almost every day.
How long Does it Take You To make A Project That You Are Happy With?
Usually an hour to an hour and a half. (for a card – a layout may take me all day!!)
What Does Your Craft Room Look Like?(Messy,Clean)
very very cluttered (after closing the store my scraproom had to hold a lot of STUFF)
What Is Your Biggest Paper Crafting Challenge?
Not enough time in the day
Look at this gorgeous card with that flower!!!
What Made You Decide To Start Selling Ippity?
I have been totally in LOVE with Unity since the day I got my first stamp. This was a no brainer and I signed up within minutes of the announcement (literally minutes!!)
Tell Us Your Experience Selling Ippity
I have enjoyed very much selling Ippity and getting to have a little “part” in this fabulous company!! I mostly sell to my friends, at classes/crops and am really focusing on my blog sales even more.
Look at these beauties Rona gives a handmade flower with each order how fabulous is that?
I usually listen to Contemporary Christian Music and a song by Addison Road called What do I know of Holy? WOW the lyrics are amazing and do describe my walk with God getting to the point I am now.
What Is Your Favorite Quote?
Proverbs 3:5and6 (verse 5 is in the Devoted set!!)
What Would I find In Your Refrigerator Right Now?
That is embarrassing – not much - a few condiments - I think we even finished off the milk this morning (good thing I am heading to the grocery store after work!!)
If You Could Be A Superhero What Would Your Powers Be?
I would love to have the power to make people listen and understand…
If Someone Wrote A Biography About You What Do You Think The Title Would Be?
What Would Your Dream Vacation Be?
Anywhere there is a beach, a nice ocean breeze and a comfy condo for me to relax!!
