Meet Ms. April!

Rachael, Ms. April, is seriously talented and has a fabulous Etsy Shoppe.

I interviewed her so that you'd get a chance to get to know her better!

1. Brief info about yourself, including your name, where you live, your family (if you want), etc.
Hello all, my name is Rachael and I am Ms April. I hail from Seattle. I have a cat named Sophie-Mittens Snagglepaw (Snagglepaw cuz it's cute and she gets stuck on everything! :lol: )

2. How long have you been stamping and/or crafting?
I've been making cards for ten years, but I've been crafting for my entire life.

3. What are your favorite Bombshell sets and why?
I can't really pick a favorite Bombshell set because they are ALL great, it really depends on what look and style you are going for.

4. What kind of projects do you like to do?
I'm a card maker and I love to try new techniques that I haven't ever used before.

5. What are your favorite coloring mediums?
Oh oh oh, I LOOOOOOVE my Copics. Prismacolor colored pencils are great too, but I don't use them nearly as much as my Copics.

6. Describe your crafting "style".
Fun, sexy, sweet.

7. Describe your crafting process. Do you start with a stamp set? A sketch? A technique you want to use?
My inspiration can be anything, but usually I find a patterned paper/stamp set combo that I'd like to use and go from there. Sometimes inspiration comes from nature. Sometimes it's everyday things that I see/photograph when I'm out and about.

8. Do you have any other hobbies?
I make jewelry, I sew (badly), I decoupage, listen to music, write, draw/sketch, and enjoy a multitude of other things.

9. Free for all including little facts, etc. about you.
I own my own handmade card business on etsy, I'm a photographer and I am a paralegal.

Now that you've learned a bit more about Rachael, here's some eye candy!
