6. Do you work one creation through to completion or do you multi task with many on the go at one time? Both depending on if I get stuck, I leave it and move on, going back when I get more ideas.
7. What is your favorite coloring medium?  I love my Copics. Why? They blend so well. I love the colors you can achieve.
8. What is the funniest thing that has ever happened while crafting? One night my sister and I were painting on T-shirts, it was very late and she was getting the shirt she had on into paint every time she reach over toward my side of the table, when I noticed I pointed it out to her and we both started laughing so hard my husband came out of our room, where he had been fast asleep, and got on to us which , of course, made us laugh even harder!
9. If you could go on a crafting weekend with 3 other crafters who would they be? Melissa Cash, Ronda Clark and Kim Meeks...they are all very fun girls to craft with.

Love your answers to the questions. Sounds like you come from a whole crafting family. Not sure if I am following you or not. I hit the follow button on the right side but it didn't ask me any questions. As I've never seen this circle thing before I may not have actually signed up.
Cheers Elizabeth
