Her Name Is Christy And She Is A Craftoholic...

Welcome to this week's edition of Craftoholics!

No idea what the what I'm talking about? Go here to find out more!

This week's Craftholic is none other than the fabulous: Christy!

What crafts do you enjoy making? What is your favorite?

"A new craft that I enjoy making is altering paint cans. They are so much fun and they can be used for so many different things. They are great for childrens activities, storing arts and crafts, or organizing an area in your house. I also enjoy making cards as well as scrapbooking!"

When did you start making crafts? Was there a particular reason or event that got your started?

"As long as I can remember I have been making crafts. When I was a little girl I always made “friendship bracelets”! My mom was always buying craft kits at the store. I enjoyed making anything. In high school I was able to take a crafting class (YES that was an elective at my all girls’ high school!) In that class we did all kinds of crafts such as altering cork boards, decoupage boxes, and scrapbooking. I also love to sew so I try to incorporate this into many of my crafts!"

Oh my goodness, I made SO many friendship bracelets back in the day! lol

I love the sparkly castle on this altered can!

What do you like to do when you aren't crafting?

"When I am not crafting I enjoy spending time with my husband. I also love to read. Some of my favorite books right now are the Women’s Murder Club by James Patterson and the number series by Janet Evanovich. I also like to go walking and play tennis. In the summer time I could spend everyday all day by the swimming pool!"

What makes you a craftoholic? What drives you to create?

"I am a craftoholic because EVERYTHING I see in the stores I investigate to see if I can make it on my own. If I can make it myself why buy it? I get a lot of inspiration from blogs that I follow on the web as well as message boards I read. But most importantly, my love for crafts drives me to create!"

Christy is so great at making a multi picture layout look uncluttered!

What is your favorite food?

"My favorite food is spaghetti or any type of pasta. I could eat pasta EVERYDAY (I know not a good idea for your body LOL!!)"

What food do you hate to eat?

"I am not really a picky eater but you will never see me eating sushi."

How long have you been blogging?

"I have only been blogging since February of this year, but I am addicted!"

What do you like best about blogging?

"My favorite thing about blogging is that it’s like keeping a diary of you, but everyone gets to read it! I just enjoy writing about everything that happens to me. It’s fun to go back and read what happened in certain points of your life. I also like the fact that I don’t have to post everything that I type so if I just need to get something out I can, but it doesn’t have to be posted!"

What craft have you always wanted to try but, for whatever reason, never have?

"I can’t really think of a craft that I have always wanted to try but haven’t. If there is something I want to try I am going to do it. I might not always be good at it, but at least I tried!"

Oh no! You've been ship wreaked on a deserted island! (Luckily you grabbed your adhesive and scissors before you jumped ship!) Name 3 other crafting supplies that your creative survival depends upon! (Note: Capt. Jack Sparrow is not a crafting supply!)

"Stickles, Buttons, and Journaling Cards!"

Stickles?!?! My sister! lol

Thanks for letting me interview you Christy! You are a major Craftoholic!

Be sure to check back next Monday when another lucky victim...ahem, I mean crafter will be added to the Craftoholic family!
