Guest - Maureen Wong

Lotsa stuff today my stamping crew! I have made some projects that I wanted to show you all today but because there is so much going on, we will see them tomorrow.

Today's very special guest is Maureen Wong. I always enjoy her delightful cards! We've all see her cards posted here before and she has such a cutie patootie touch to her cards, I nabbed her for a spotlight! Nab! Nab! Nab! All her cutie pie cards are sooo awesome, love them all!

Maureen Wong

How long have you been scrapbooking/stamping?
I first started both in 1998 and have some really terrible layouts from the beginning to show for it!

What is your favorite technique?
Definitely paper piecing. If I can do it on a card, I will!

What is your tool of choice?
This is so hard to narrow down, but I guess I have to go with my squishy scissors. I love to do 3D elements and paper piecing so I can't live without them!

$1000 and 30min to spend it? Where do you go?
The internet! I'd be spending it all on more stamps and supplies and there isn't any one store locally that has everything I'd want.

Describe your creative style?
Eclectic. I'm very influenced by other people's works, so my style can be anything depending on what inspires me that day.

Rubber stamps or clear?
Both - I can't discriminate!

If you were a color, what color would you be? Why?
Pink. Even though I don't think of it as my favorite color, I do seem to buy a lot of pink papers and supplies.

Describe your crafting area.
A total disaster! When I create, I pull out a ton of things to try and don't want to break my momentum to put anything away. At any given time I have about 6 square inches of clean work space!

Do you eat while you craft? If so, what?
No - I'd make too much of a mess!

Top 3 wishes:
That I'll always have a creative urge, that I'll be a good wife and mom for my family, and that the world will be a good place for my kids to grow up.

Today's questions is: What did you have for breakfast today?

I usually have a late breakfast. I guess it would be called a brunch. Lol. It usually consists of a banana, a bowl of Special K red berries cereal, and an egg.

Breakfast is my favorite meal, so it varies. My ideal breakfast is pancakes, eggs, and turkey bacon.
