Her Name Is Danielle 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 Craftoholic is the fantastic Danielle!

Please list any crafts you enjoy making. What is your favorite?

"I am a great lover of paper. I love the feel of it, the smell, everything about it. So, I enjoy all paper crafting. I am mostly a scrap booker, but I make the occasional card too. I am recently into making collages from paper, and other items. One of my favorite things I picked up along the way is altered items. I love altering!! If I can put paper on it, I will alter it!!"

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

"No reason. I was actually watching QVC one day 6-7 years ago, and they were selling scrappy stuff. I was intrigued. Then, at work, some of the ladies were having a “Stampin’ Up” party, and I went. It was so fun playing with paper and ink. SOOOOOO, I placed an order with QVC, and just started playing in my spare time.!!!! Lucky me!!!"

I love this altered box!

What do you like to do when you aren't crafting?
"I LOVE spending time with my Boys. They are my heart. So, we chat, play games, watch movies, and I enjoy their company so much. Of course, DH is ok too!! But, just for me, if it isn’t crafty, I would say reading. I always have a book or magazine with me at all times. I love food network too. I love seeing what they will come up with!!"

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

"It is in my head all the time. I am always thinking about how I will make a lo, or how I will alter something. I see items either outside, or inside, and I am thinking about how I could use them!! The pictures of my boys, or my dog. Leaves on a tree, these are the things that drive me."

This project is so fun!

What is your favorite food?

"I love California rolls with ginger and fried rice!!! YUM!!"

What food do you hate to eat?

"I HATE lima beans!!"

How long have you been blogging?

"I started blogging January of this year."

What do you like best about blogging?

"The people I have met along the way. Scrappy/crafty people are the nicest people in the world!!"

I love Danielle's attention to detail!

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

"Great question!! I don’t really know. I would say sewing. I sew on paper, and even have a little sewing machine for that. But I have always admired people who can make clothes, and things like that."

Oh no! You've been ship wrecked 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!)

"I LOVE JOHNNY DEPP!!!!!!!!! HOW COULD YOU NOT LET ME HAVE HIM!!!??? OK, OK. Seriously. I would have to grab patterned paper, sandpaper, and spray ink.
HAHA!! Capt. Jack was already on the island!!!!"

Thanks for letting me interview you Danielle! You are such a Craftoholic!

Craftoholics will be taking a little break. If you are interested in being interviewed, please check out the post linked at the top and feel free to e-mail me. Thanks!
