Meet Ms. February -- Dawn Knight!

It's time to meet our February Pin-up, Dawn Knight!

Here's her interview!

1. Brief info about yourself, including your name, where you live, your family (if you want), etc.
My name is Dawn Knight. You can call me "She Who Must Be Obeyed," Just kidding! I live in North Carolina with my David, The Super Hubby; Ava, my six year old diva; and Jakey, the sunshine of the Knight residence, our 17 month old son.

2. How long have you been stamping and/or crafting?
I have been stamping six years and crafting since I was seven and my mother taught me to crochet. The funny thing is that I knit now and cannot remember how to crochet! But let me tell you, I will NEVER forget how to stamp! I love it!

3. What are your favorite Bombshell sets and why?
I love Homeward Bound -- the ship reminds me of my precious momma and daddy. Daddy was in the Navy for 20+ years and momma says she was in too because they traveled the world together with my four older brothers and sisters. When he retired from the navy, my sister and I were born, so we traveled mostly in the states. Seeing my parents' faces light up when they talked about their adventures always made me smile.

4. What kind of projects do you like to do?
I really love to make cards. They are like little pieces of art. I really want to get more into altering things. I do like to make treat holders because I love a good treat now and then!

5. What are your favorite coloring mediums?
Copic markers! Of course they should be! My set cost more than my car! ha ha! But they are amazing. I am really getting back in touch with my watercolor crayons and I love to mix things together to create other types of coloring mediums, like Pearl-ex and Crystal Effects or reinkers and Shimmerz.It is like a science lab in my craft room!

6. Describe your crafting "style".

Caveman -- totally caveman! I make a mess when I am crafting and I don't like to follow directions or patterns. I just let the creativity flow and take me where it takes me!

7. Describe your crafting process. Do you start with a stamp set? A sketch? A technique you want to use?
I sometimes cannot sleep, so I think about stamping and I will make up card sketches or color combos. Then I get a stamp set in my head that would work perfectly for those ideas. So I would say that my process is "OCD meets crafting!"

8. Do you have any other hobbies?
I am a knitting freak, I love to quilt and sew and really I will try
anything creative!

9. Free for all including little facts, etc. about you.
• I have a crazed fascination with abandoned asylums and recently spent the night in one.
• I am terrified of clowns. I mean like PHOBIC!
• I love birthday cake and think it is the best dessert in the world.
• I love electronic gadgets though I will tell you I can take them or leave them.
• My oldest brother is 20 years older than me -- from the same parents.
• I have been a hairdresser for 23 years, but amazingly I don't look a day over 29!
• I have two Jack Russell terriers, but I would love about eight of them. They are the best dogs, they are just like me!
