Q. When did you begin Paper Crafting ?

A. I have been crafting ever since I was  a little girl. My mum used to tell me that I was prolly born with a pair of scissors, glue & paint brush in my hand. ROFL !

As a kid and even now I have always gifted my friends & dear ones with handmade cards & Gifts, altered items for their Birthdays, Wedding Anniversaries & other such Occasions. For all the festivals we celebrate I have always decorated my home. Since my Childhood I have enjoyed every bit of my passion for crafting and would wanna continue to do so in every form !

Q. Do You have a preferred technique ?

A. I like to experiment with almost anything that I can get hold of. I don't follow any specific method or technique. I just believe in going with the flow. And I enjoy learning each time I experiment with something new. Currently I'm thoroughly enjoying Mixed Media where the possibilities are endless.....

Q. Who is Your Favorite  Manufacturer ?

A. Now this is a Super Tough One. It's like choosing between your own kids.

ROFL... Well to name some I absolutely Love Ranger,Prima,Lindy's Stamp Gang, Design Memory Craft - Faber Castell, Fiskars,Kaiser Craft,Spellbinders,Unity Stamp Co. and Many Many More !

Q. Do You have a Crafty Crush ?

A. Well I don't know about crush... But yes I admire loads of Super Talented Crafters.. Just naming a few,

1. Tim Holtz - King Of Distress & Vintage

2.Limor Webber  3.Ingvild Bolme  4. Finnabair - Queens of Mixed Media 

Q. Who or What Inspires Your Creations ?

A.  I'm inspired by just about anything and everything around me..Nature, Fabrics, Household Products etc..

Q. Music- Off/On while Crafting ?

A. Oh ! yes... I have to have Music...

Q.  Anything else you would like us to know ?

A. Just that I am ever so thankful to God for having given me the ability to see, touch, hear, feel & taste everything that HE has created. It's so BEAUTIFUL !

Also for showering upon me so much of Love, Support, understanding & Cooperation from My Husband Sourav without whom I would not have been here today! 

I wanna thank all my Friends & Co Crafters for inspiring me in every little way & encouraging me to do better. 

To all the Manufacturers, Educators, Shop Owners, etc a Big Thank You & Hug - Cause it's because of you guys that Crafters like us are surviving. I sometimes wonder what would have I done if I didn't craft ?!? 

Psssst... I have this TERRIBLE HABIT of Standing while I'm crafting. I just cannot make myself to SIT & Craft. Even if I'm crafting for long hours I stand & work !! Does that happen to anyone else?? Am I NORMAL ?
