Flatterday Saturday - Laura Ching

Are you ready to get to know Laura Ching a little more???
Let me introduce you to her!

Let me share a little more about Laura with her own words.

Tell us a little about yourself.
 I live in Aloha Oregon,  I have 2 girls who also love ippity and crafting and sometimes have projects on my blog too.  When I am not at school or my office    ( I have been selling stuffed animals online for over 10 years now! And my etsy shop, ) I am crafting, whether it is machine embroidery, cooking or paper crafting.  My husband is very supportive of my habits and even follows some manufacturers twitter accounts so he can chat with me about the latest!  How cute is that!! 

  How did you first get involved in stamping?
My mom started hosting stampin up parties when I was in middle school, and I usually attended them with her.  Once my girls grew up a bit more I started looking around for a hobby and ended up with paper crafting.

 What is your stamping style?
Anything with lace or ribbon J

Tell us about your creative process
I need to have big mess and start creating elements and then it eventually comes together.  I keep a box of things that are interesting to me, tags, pictures, ribbon, color combos, and when I need inspiration start looking at those

What is your favorite {ippity} stamp set and why?
Regal greetings  I use it all the time!  I even used it to make labels for my fabric bins.

 How often do you stamp?
As often as I can but it is not often enough!  Usually on the weekends. 

 How long does it take you to make a project you are happy with?
That is a tough question!  The time can vary I have thrown some cards together in minutes and been shocked with the results and spent hours on others and hated them.

 What is your biggest paper crafting challenge?
Trying to be fair to all my stamps and use them!  So many supplies so much paper sooooo little time! 

What is the name of your Ippity Sales Blog?

What made you decide to start selling Ippity?
It was my birthday and I wanted Regal Greetings and the local ippity chick ( Michelle Woerner) was out!  So I decided to sign up and get it (and a few more for myself)

Tell us about your experience selling Ippity
I have not done much with it online yet, but have had interest from local ladies.

What song best describes you?
Dynamite by Taio Cruz

 If you were stranded on a desert island what are the three things you would bring?
My family( counts as one, right?), music, ribbon.  Think of all the uses for ribbon!

 What is your favorite quote?
“I’ve learned you can’t have everything and do everything at the same time” – Oprah Winfrey

What would I find in your refrigerator right now?
Diet Pepsi, and I really don’t know, we’d have to ask my husband J he is a chef and handles all of our food for the most part.

  If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be?
Well…  I would need a cape, preferably pink!  Flying!
