Getting to Know ::
Ruthie {Nixon}

How long have you been blogging and what inspired you to create a
blog for your creations?
I started my blog a little over a year ago. I was already posting videos on YouTube and I had gotten several requests, from viewers, for photos and more detailed information on some of my projects. I figured that a blog would be the best way to share additional information.

What are some of your biggest inspirations for creating?
I find inspiration in lots of places.. Flickr, Etsy, fabric and craft stores, craft fairs, the farmers market, the fashion/design district

You're asked to get crafty in a room with absolutely no supplies -you can bring five tools. What do you bring with you?
1. Paper
2. Ribbon
3. My bottle of glue with the needle nose applicator.
4. Paper Trimmer
5. Vintage Photo distress ink

What is your FAVORITE Peachy Keen Stamp Face Set and why?
I really like Princess Faces because of the sweet expressions, but the Laughy Taffy faces are really fun too!

Your "go-to" colors to design with?
I am not sure that I have a "go to" color. Maybe red? I love that with each new season, we get new colors too. Right now I can't get enough of the wonderful rich tones of Fall.

Favorite season or holiday to create for?

What die-cutting system or method do you primarily use to craft with?
My Cricut or my Cuttlebug.

What are five words that describe you?
1. Creative
2. Sensitive
3. Friend
4. Fun
5. Perfectionist

Have a great week everyone! See you back soon! ~ Angelica :)
