how do you organize your supplies? what is your favorite organization technique?

Shannon said...

Happy Birthday to you! How sweet of you to do this! I am a new follower, and I was curious as to how long you've been crafting and what inspires you? Has your taste changed from when you first started? Did you have to try different things before you knew what was right for you? Okay, so that was more like 3 questions, sorry! :D

Happy Birthday! My question...when did you get started designing your own embroidery patterns? Also, who taught you to embroidery? And is it hard to keep up with your blog with daily postings?

BTW...looking back the 30's were the most fun years of my life. :):):) Lynn

I have been following your blog for about a year, I must say this site is my favorite, honestly :]

Your drawings are awesome, have you ever illustrated a book?

Happy Birthday!!!

annemarie said...

Happy Birthday to you - hope you have a great one - love your owl cake. Oh dear is being number 1 good or bad??? My question for you is how do you do all you do and still have some "me" time?? What is your key to time management. This is always a problem for me - effectively managing time. Another question - did you ever make the macrame owl hanging - would love to find a pattern for that owl - yeh, I like owls!!

Kitty Talk said...

It is my daughters FIRST birthday today too! It makes me want to cry but instead I made her a dress! haha I love your blog and laughed at the owl cake because I have been in love with owls for about 10 years or so and we are making Owl cupcakes for my daughter tonight! :) So my question to you would be where do you see yourself in 10 years as far as your business goes? Do you plan on expanded at all or keeping it where it is? I hope my owl cupcakes turn out as cute as your cake!

Happy Birthday!
What a great giveaway. My question for you... What is your favorite memory from the last year while you were 30?

Pato said...

Thank you so much! I wish your birthday was more often!
Anyway, I would really like to know when did you decided that you would make a living from your crafts which usually starts just as a hobby, if it was a hard decision (like leaving your daytime job, etc).
Thanks!!!

Alli (One Pearl Button) said...

Happy, happy birthday! My question to you is - what's your favorite thing to make?

Vanessa said...

I've also just found your blog site. I have to say I love it. My question is do you have a daily routine that includes your crafting and blogging. For me I like to blog in the morning, housework and bake through the day and craft at night. I'm just wondering if you have a routine like that?
And also will you post to Australia if I win?? LOL

Mariana (: said...

Hi! cute giveaway :)

Thanks! lovely blog too.

Shannon said...

I love your blog after finding it recently!! Is there a search function to search previous posts? I cannot seem to find one.

Drama queens mum (Kimberly) said...

Happy birthday. Just found your blog. My question for you is how can I become crafty/creative without going to school & when my mind goes blank everytime I go to scrapbook or do crafts? I try to get inspiration from blogs & magazines, but it doesn't help much. dramaqueensmum@gmail.com

Pink Petunia Designs said...

Happy Birthday Amy! I love your blog of course and want to know your most favorite project (craft related) that you have ever done. I love everything that you make, but is there one specific one that you loved more than any other? And another question I am dying to know is: what was your first peptogirl craft that you ever made? Sorry, that's two.

Jessica said...

Hi There and Happy (Belated) Birthday!
I hope it was magical and amazing!

I luuuurve the goodies you've picked out for your giveaway, especially the earrings!

Anywho, whenever I read your blog I'm always in awe of how PRODUCTIVE you are! Seriously! You're a machine! I'm so jealous of how well you keep up with the RVA craft classes. I was in the Autumn Loves Craft Class and I think I managed to finish two projects! I'm also in Style School and I haven't done a single thing yet! (Shame on me, huh?)

That being said - how do you manage to get *so much* accomplished in a day? Do you have a 9-to-5 or is crafting your full time occupation? I just graduated from college last May and between job hunting, daily obligations/errands (cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping, post office, etc.), taking care of my dogs, and getting some rest...I NEVER seem to have time to do/make fun stuff, so you're a real inspiration to me!

Also - I know you love baking, so what's your favorite flavor of cupcake? (PS - if you ever visit Seattle, you MUST visit Trophy Cupcake!)

<3 Jessica

Kylie said...

Happy Birthday!! love the cake & NO its not wrong to make your own cake...there always HAS to be cake :0) Heres my question for you...where can I find some fab craft & supplies while visiting the US? I'm coming over from OZ in May & am keen to visit some handmade markets & stores.

i-zilla said...

oh i'm so in! happy birthday hun!

icandy... said...

Amy said...

Happy Birthday!
I am a new follower, and a newbie crafter as well!
I have two questions... one is about how you began web design. What are the basic skills you need? Your blog is seriously the cutest one I've ever seen.
My second question is are all of these giveaway items handmade by you? They are all so very adorable :)
Such a great idea to have a giveaway for your bday, I hope it's a great one!

Kristen said...

cindyn said...

Happy Birthday! Questions: Historically (say 1800s), who (whom?) would you have wanted to be? Are you going to get an iPad? And, you're so creative, I think you should write a series of stories starring a crafter like yourself. Have you thought about that?

getRad said...

Hi. I'm a new follower! I'm pretty much in love with your blog.
How do you decide which crafts to display in your home? Do you put up a little of everything or is it a harder process to pick and choose?

Mandy said...

Do you end up awake half the night cos an idea is in your head & you aren't going to sleep until you make notes? lol

& Happy Birthday to you!

Carrie said...

Happy Birthday!! I have to tell you, you make the happiest stuff to look at!
Ok, if you were a Muppet, which one would you be and why?

sellita said...

I just found your blog. It's awesome. As for my question, I've been trying to convince my sis to start her own etsy shop (she's an amazing artist), but to no avail. What made you decide that this is the path you wanted to take, as far as having an unconventional, not nine-to-five "job"?

The Creative Place said...

Happy Birthday! I just found your blog and am way excited to read more! :) Super fun giveaway. I guess since I just found you -- how long have you been blogging and what types of things inspire you most? Oooh and one more - how do you organize your thoughts, ideas and inspiration? :)

GourmetGirlie said...

Happy Birthday! I'm loving your embroidery, what's your favorite thing you've ever stitched?

ABandGeek88 said...

Happy birthday!!

How did you get into web design? Do you love it, or would you rather do something else?

vane31 said...

Hello! Being in your thirties is awesome isnt it?...Well, my question for you birthday girl is does your significant other support your crafty madness? :D

Vera said...

Hi :)

my question is where do you get your inspiration from? name 5 things XO

Alicia said...

Hi! Happy Birthday!!!! My question for you is: what advice or input do you have to offer younger people who want to make arts/crafts/design a Serious part of their life? (I love to ask anyone in the artsy world this question)
