What is your blog software and what is your theme?
I use WordPress, and the theme is a tweaked version of U-Design. :)
I would love a font of your handwriting. Is there one? If not, will you send me scans/images of your handwriting?
No, I haven’t ever had a font of my handwriting made, and I don’t plan to. Along those same lines, I don’t feel comfortable scanning my handwriting for anything other my own personal projects. Just a personal decision.
What happened to the Color Inspiration Challenges?
I address this in this entry.
What camera do you use to take photos?
I currently use a Canon 50D (LOVE!), and a Canon Digital Rebel T3i. Old general photo/camera info (including my lens) is covered in this entry. I still use the same lenses, just a different camera now. :)
Will you take pictures of my family?
I occasionally do private photo shoots. If you are in the Salt Lake City, Utah area and are interested, please send me an email via the contact form.
How do I order the Stampin’ Up! stamps and supplies you use?
You can locate a demonstrator at the Stampin’ Up! website. Just click on Find a Demonstrator. :)

What inks do you recommend for stamping with clear (photopolymer) stamps?
I find the best results with either StazOn inks or Colorbox Fluid Chalk inks. Those are the kinds that I use most often. They are sold by many craft stores and websites. Just google it to find an online retailer.
I’m thinking about buying a digital cutting machine. Which is better, the Cricut or the Silhouette? What advice can you give me?
I use the Silhouette over the Cricut mainly for quality issues when cutting from my computer. See this entry. As a “you don’t have to have a computer to use it” machine, the Cricut is fine and dandy. But if you’re cutting from a computer, the Silhouette is the clear winner–especially now that the Silhouette Cameo can accommodate 12″ wide paper. There’s no reason to get a Cricut unless you prefer to not use a computer or absolutely love the cartridge images.
I have questions about the Cricut / Sure Cuts a Lot / Silhouette. Can you answer them?
Your best bet is to post to one of the message boards or blogs. There a people a lot more knowledgeable than me who will help you there. I’m somewhat new at this, too! :)
Any advice for getting cards/pages in magazines?
It’s all in the craftmanship. Always scor your cards before folding, make sure your ribbon isn’t fraying, edges cut and adhered straight, and then take a good photo. Make your creation look the best it ever has. Oh, and try some of these publications (they accept email/web submissions):
Will you give a tour of your craft room?
Absolutely! In fact, I already have. :)
