Name: Lisa Lujan
How long have you been a crafter?
10 years (I think. I really can’t remember.)
How did you get started?
I wanted to organized some vacation photos so started with a vacation scrapbook going back to my childhood.
What was your first project?
What is your favorite type of projects now? (Albums, cards, mixed media, art journals, coloring etc.)
I really love making cards and art journaling
Do you listen to music while you craft?
If so, which genre? Sometimes and depends on my mood. I might listen to 60’s music to something classical.
What part of crafting is the most intimidating?
Getting started and journaling
Do you pre-plan your projects or do you get inspired as you go?
Sometimes, but usually when I’m done I wish I’d done something else.
Do you clean your craft table after every project?
I wish! Something for me to strive toward.
Have you ever sold your projects? If so, where can we find your work?
No, but one of these days I’m going to get my act together and start an Etsy store for pendants I make.
If you were given the chance to pick 3 products in any craft store where money was no object, what 3 things would you choose?
I would probably be something to do with Art Journaling. Something from Dyan Reaveley or Tim Holtz. I would probably go for the expensive paints that I don’t allow myself to buy.
What do you do outside of crafting? Other hobbies/interests/accomplishments?
Right now I’m trying to learn everything I can about building websites and increasing traffic to our website and figuring out what exactly a CFO does.
Favorite Topic: (Vacations, Children/Baby, Disney, etc) Vacation
Favorite Adhesive: I’d be lost without my pink adhesive gun but I still need Brandy or Heidi to help me load it.
Favorite Craft Brand: That’s tough. It really depends on the project. If I’m art journaling I love Dyan Reaveley, Tim Holtz and Heidi Swap, but for card making or scrapbooking I love Close to My Heart.
Favorite Accessory: Glitter Spray! It gives everything a little sparkle.
Favorite way to shop: (Online, In-store, Bazaars, Expos, etc.) In-store or expos. I like to see what I’m getting because when I order online I’m always a little surprised at what arrives.
Favorite Craft Blogger:
I don’t have one but I’m excited to see what are spotlight craft bloggers are doing.
THIS OR THAT: (And tell us why if you have an interesting angle)
Keep scraps or toss scraps?
I probably keep too many. I have a problem throwing things away.
Buttons: Thread or No thread?
NO THREAD! Who has time to try to put it through those small holes.
Decorative scissors or edge punches?
My first scrapbook I used decorative scissors on every picture but now I’m likely to use edge punches.
Our next newsletter will have a special announcement and then later this month we’ll begin our spotlight on craft bloggers. We are excited to get their views on our little questionnaire plus see what we can learn from their blogs.
As the web developer I'd love to hear what you'd like to see us add to our website.
