Kelli is one of our new Bombshell girls, who has a distinctive, edgy, and fun style.
You're going to want to know more about her, so read her interview!
1. Brief info about yourself, including your name, where you live, your family (if you want), etc.
I am Kelli, a 38 year old stay-at-home mom of two. I live (currently) in Newport News VA but a move is in the very near future as hubby is retiring from the Navy-.My third child is my little bassett hound, Rainey
2. How long have you been stamping and/or crafting?
I have been crafting since I can remember. My mom always made everything, even the flower bouquets for my sister's wedding out of paper ribbon!!! So she is who gave me my passion. I picked up my first stamp when I was 23 and quickly put it down because I didn't enjoy it at all. Then picked it back up again in 2002/2003 and have been going strong since then!!!
3. What are your favorite Bombshell sets and why?
My favorite sets are Man's Ruin and Butterfly Queen. They were my first, so I guess you could say they popped my different/edgy-stamping cherry!!! LOL! I love Man's Ruin because honestly how many of us wish we had that big of a cocktail glass handy?!?!?!?!? and I love Butterfly Queen because of the wings.
4. What kind of projects do you like to do?
I love to do everything really -- cards, mixed media, altering, jewelry, I'll try anything once. I don't scrap as much as I used to and honestly almost 99% of my scrapping these days is digital!!!
5. What are your favorite coloring mediums?
I am a copic ho too. Although I do cheat on them every so often with my prismacolor pencils or watercolors, I always go back to them!!!
6. Describe your crafting "style"..
Crafting "style" hmmmm. I would have to say I am a edgy, alternative, gothic crafter. I am totally in love with things that are not for the "normal" person. I like to tell people that if they don't like it, then give it to me cause I will love it!!!
7. Describe your crafting process. Do you start with a stamp set? A sketch? A technique you want to use?
Quite honestly my projects either come from music or dreams. Now what that means is that the type of project you get from me on any given day will depend on the type of music that is playing when I am working on that project! What I mean by dreams is just that, I have literally woken up in the middle of the night and rushed to the craft room to make something. If we are in the car going somewhere, I will totally draw something out in the air that I just day dreamed up and then totally put it on the back of a receipt or something!!!
8. Do you have any other hobbies?
Isn't stamping enough??? LOL Seriously, I love to read, make big huge decorations for my house, and renovate old houses!
9. Free for all including little facts, etc. about you.
Little tidbits about me.... I love hot tea, snowmen, and dark chocolate. Those are my vices, if you want to call them that, I call it living in Kellitopia!!! I love to grow things and cook. I like to eat too, but cooking is the best!
