We are so happy to have Corry with us for December as our first ever Guest Odd Girl! She’s been a big SOGgy supporter and such a creative talent! To get to know her a lil better we’ve asked her a few questions and want to open it up to YOU to ask her some more. Here’s how Corry answered our odd questions:
1) What color do feel represents your personality and why?
My fave color is brown. Does this represent my personality?…..perhaps……I’m a country girl at heart, grew up on a farm, small town living. Everything was made of wood in our house, even my dad became a wood worker of sorts—building furniture & painting them brown. Perhaps it grew on me. To this day, I am drawn to brown shades, however have been told I look good in yellow! lol
2) Is your style of dress/ home decor similar to your style of card making?
Yes, it’s kinda all over the place, like my cards. I am not usually a clean cut, mod type person. I tend to change things up in my life ALL the time. Hubby hates when he comes home and the living room is changed around AGAIN. haha. I like to add lotsa embellies to my cards, which also resembles my home decor of a ‘whole lot going on’….not just one style; but dress/clothes wise, I am as plain as they come. Sweats & a T !! That’s me!
3) What one thing always puts you in a good mood?
Grocery shopping. Sounds corny I know (especially lugging 3 kids for the 1.5 hr ride to the big city-better deals)…. but spending a whole wack of money on groceries & just knowing that for the next month we have enough food to make some healthy meals, makes me happy. Means hubby & I are providing well for our family.
4) What SOG character do you most identify with and why?
Ice Cream Tia. I haven’t made a card with her yet, waiting for summer, you know. Cuz when I was growing up I always had a small vanilla cone dipped in chocolate almost every day after school. Then we I was old enough to get a job, one of my first places of employment was at that SAME ice cream store. MMMmmmmmmmm I love my ice cream!
5) Are you just a cardmaker or do you dabble in other crafts?
I also do scrapbooking. Tradtional & digital, but this has kinda fell at the wasteside since finding blogland. To give you an idea, one of my last scrapbooking pages was when my 3 yr old was 9 months! YA! Pretty bad.
6)Where do you find your inspiration?
I dunno, really. It just comes. I am not an artistic person by any means, but seeing all the lovely creations in blogland really gets me inspired to improve, to try a different style, to try a different color combo, to make something other than a card. I have had the privilege to be on some DT’s with some amazingly talented ladies who inspire me daily with their kind words & fresh creations!!! (mwah) Also, when you have a good image to work with (like SOG digis), the inspiration just falls into place. ACTUALLY, I was thinking the other day, that it was the first SOG blog hop (was it a hop? where each SOG DT member shared a tip) that intrigued me to improve on my coloring & purchase some copics for skin & hair tones. I will never forget the feedback all the ladies gave me when I commented on their creations. I remember jumping back to that hop when I wondered what color copic I should use next!!! Pretty cool hey?!
So what would YOU like to know? Corry will be answering questions here in the comments 🙂 She has also made a fabby project to showcase her talents!
