AND THE WINNER IS:
I was very excited when I was contacted by Annabelle's Art about doing a give away on my blog. In fact I love the shop so much I ordered some cards right away and ordered some custom Thank you cards too. (you can see them HERE). They are all beautiful and I couldn't be happier with them :) For the give away - you will have a chance to get some cards from this amazing shop too.
*Where are you from? Tell us a bit about yourself.
I'm originally from a little town called Thetford Mines, in Quebec Canada. It's a 100% french speaking community; therefore my maternal language is French. I only type in english.... and create cards!
*How did you decide on your shop name? Why did you start your business?
This one was easy.
The original idea for the shop was to feature some of my daughter's Annabelle art work. Annabelle is a wonderful special needs little girl, who faced many chanllenges since she was born. I adopted her after being her foster-mom since birth. Life is hard for her every day, but she thrives when making arts and crafts. So I thought I needed to feature her work! She started making stitch markers for my personnal knitting, and soon friends on a knitting social website were raving about her work, and were telling me I should sell her markers.... so I decided we should open a store together! I already had a handmade knitted accessories store on Etsy, so we created Annabelle's Art together.
*What or who inspires you?
I have to say that work of other super talentend paper artists inspires me as well. I'm always on the lookout for the newest trends, but my work really comes from my heart. I forget everything when I'm at my craft table! Paper art is really a passion for me.
What are 5 things you want people to think when they see your product?
The most important thing I wish people to feel when they see our products, is that they are make with lots of love. Because they are! We also strive for a polish but unique look.
*What’s your supply addiction; is there a specific color or type of supply you just can’t pass up?
I'd say stamps sets are my main addition. I really have problems resisting a cute stamp! The other thing I have trouble with is paper punches.
*What do you do when you’re not being an artist? What activities do you enjoy?
I enjoy photography, being with my kids, and watching movies.
*Are there other places on the net we can find you?
