Interview with DT member Jo Hood.

 Morning bloggers..

Here is an Interview with another one of our DT members,
Jo is our expert when it comes to working with pre-coloured images and card kits.

Tell us a bit about yourself..
 I am a stay at home mum to Hayden who is nearly 2. I am wife to my darling husband Gary who is my best friend, rock and soul mate. We have been together for 5 years and married for 2 years this October. We live in Lochgelly, Fife in Scotland.

* How long have you been crafting?
I have been crafting most of my life. I loved art when I was at school and really wish I had kept it up when I left. Crafting sort of went to the back of my mind as I was growing up and life started to take over. What with holding down 2 full time jobs and enjoying life with my friends.

 * Why did you start?? 
  When we decided to get married, crafting came back into my life in a big way. We decided to make as much as we could to keep our costs down for the big day. I made bouquets for myself and the 2 bridesmaids, the button holes for the groom, best man and my dad. I made a 3 tier cake as well. We also made all of our order of services. I made all the bouquets for the mum's as we both have 2 each. I also made up activity boxes for the children that attended through the day according to their ages.

In Feb 2012 we made the decision that i would quit my job and stay at home with Hayden. I needed something else to do to keep me busy and sane. And so I started up my crafting again. I love it!!!!!!! It helps me keep my head above water at the end of the day. I do most of my crafting once Hayden is in bed.

* What is your favorite craft/style/tecnique?
 I don't have a favourite craft/technique or style as I like to keep trying new things all the time. At the moment I am enjoying finding things that I can alter.

* What are your crafty plans for the future??  
 I decided in November 2012 to go one step further with my crafting and to start up my own business. So in December 2012, Tinkability Crafts was born. I love my job, it means so much to me. I love seeing my customers faces when they come and pick up an order, it's a great feeling.

Future plans for me at the moment is to get myself out there some more and to expand my range of stock to cater to peoples requirements.

Show us some of your DT work for Stamping Dagon.. 
Here is a few bit of what I have made for Stamping Dragon Design so far.

Thank you for stopping by.
