This week our spotlight is on Heidi Deming who coordinates both community outreach and classes at expo.
How long have you been a crafter?
How did you get started?
The credit goes to my mother-in-law, bless her heart! Who knew that a Christmas gift could develop into such a blessing and journey!
What was your first project?
Well, my first scrapbook page was of my husband and I in our dating days. It was quite the project!
What is your favorite type of projects now? (Albums, cards, mixed media, art journals, coloring etc.)
I love making cards, but lately have done some albums that have been fun. My latest adventure is in heat transfer vinyl.
Do you listen to music while you craft? If so, which genre?
If so, which genre? YES! It's a must. Mostly I like good ole rock 'n roll and 80's hair bands!
What part of crafting is the most intimidating?
Organizing my idea and figuring out how I'm going to execute it.
Do you pre-plan your projects or do you get inspired as you go?
I'm a planner and I dislike wasting materials
Do you clean your craft table after every project?
Yes! I need a clean slate.
Have you ever sold your projects? If so, where can we find your work?
Yes, but not on purpose. Mostly, I make projects as gifts for family members and friends.
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?
Anything Cricut! My cutter is the backbone of my crafting. Vinyl and images to use in Design Space for my Cricut.
What do you do outside of crafting? Other hobbies/interests/accomplishments?
Scrapbooking has become a bit of a ministry to me. I enjoy making scrapbook pages to donate to a local charity. I volunteer to help with my kids' activities as I am available, and I love a good book!
Favorite Topic: (Vacations, Children/Baby, Disney, etc)
Vacations albums are my most favorite since I'm captivating memories of my family for years to come.

Favorite Craft Brand:
Close to My Heart
Favorite way to shop: (Online, In-store, Bazaars, Expos, etc.)

Favorite Craft Blogger:
Joy Tracy--Obsessed with Scrapbooking, although I have been finding many bloggers I enjoy.
THIS OR THAT: (And tell us why if you have an interesting angle)
Keep scraps or toss scraps?
Toss if they are smaller than 2x2 typically
Buttons: Thread or No thread?
No thread, glue dots.
Decorative scissors or edge punches?
Definitely edge punches. I couldn't cut a straight line to save my life.
The result of last blog's survey was 100% shopping in stores with write ins for all of the above, Stampin Up and Close to My Heart.
This week we'd like to know if you incorporate music into your crafting.
