Crazy Bliss is a wonderful card shop!! All the cards, invitations, tags, prints & posters are original. They have all been designed by Jennifer Reid who is from Ottawa Ontario, Canada! The give away prize that Jennifer's supplying, is a set of 5 cards!! But first - lets find out more about Jennifer her shop.
How did you decide on your shop name? My shop's name is Crazy Bliss which came from how I originally described my illustration style. When did you start crafting/drawing?
I've been crafting most of my life and eventually developed the crazy bliss illustration style in 2004. My mom recognized a creative drive in me when I was a toddler and provided me with what ever supplies we could find for projects. I was lucky enough to have a very well stocked art room in high school and was able to sample most media readily available. When I need a break from painting, I usually dabble in some form of mixed media.
Are there other crafts you would like to try? I would really like to try the metal clays. I'd also like to improve my woodworking skills. What or who inspires you? I get inspiration from a lot of different sources - lines in books, tv commercials or snippets of conversation provide comical images in my head. I'll also flip through magazines of all kinds to get inspiration for multi-media projects. When I run out of ideas from those sources, I'll just talk to my nutty mother who's also my assistant and she'll keep me more than inspired than I asked for!! Do you have a day job? I actually took a part time job at a restaurant and work there 1 or 2 days a week there to get out of my studio and be with physical people. It was getting lonely working at home and the restaurant is also a great source of inspiration and a lot of fun. What is the item in your shop you enjoyed making the most and why? I need to update my shop with my new products but I'd say that my favorite item currently is the cat on vacation series of cards. The series stars a little cat named benjamin who's fed up with the mundane and decides to travel the world. I have a lot of fun painting that series.
