Seven on Sunday with Amy From Dearie Designs

Are you having a great 4th of July Weekend? I hope so!! 
Second up in our fabulous weekend of interviews is Amy from Dearie Designs!! This is a new blog I have come across and it is a good one. You should definitely go support her blog and follow along!
Really…go! It is the nice thing to do :).

1.       In a couple of sentences, tell us about yourself.
My name is Amy Dearie. I am married to my best friend {and I don’t say that lightly}, John.  We have two adorable stinkers, Jesse {3.75} and Abigale {18 months} and we hope to add to that number soon.  I am a work-at-home mom as a demonstrator for almost 10 years with Stampin’ UP and Artist/Creator/Owner of Dearie Designs, where every gift is created with paper, stamps, & ink.  So I sell the supplies for people who like to do it themselves or I can create it for you!
2.       How did you get into blogging?  
I wanted to be a source of inspiration and help to my customers for Stampin’ Up and hopefully {honestly} drive more business back to myself, whether in SU or etsy orders.  I am all about honesty. :)  I actually have a “life” blog {the Dearies’ Not-So-Dailies}  and this creative blog, as well as being on Facebook.
 
3.       What is your blog about in a nutshell? 
Dearie Designs is about the fantastic things you can create with Paper, Stamps, and Ink.
4.       What are your favorite materials/ ingredients/ tools to work with?  
I am always on a mission to find the best adhesive to adhere my projects made with paper, stamps, & ink and make them last.
5.       Where do you find your inspiration?  
As a demonstrator, Stampin’ Up supplies us with many demo-only magazines, sites, links, etc, which really help.  My upline is amazing at sharing projects that are beautiful, creative and easy!  In addition, I love to browse other blogs and the linky parties are great sources for the latest creations of others!
6.       What are a couple of your favorite blogs? 
There are so many but  Someday Crafts, Creative Princess, and {if you don’t know, you should} Jones Design Company.  This doesn’t count the personal life blogs that I follow, especially of my friends
7.       What are a couple of your favorite projects?
These Bloomin Flower Sucker Party Favors are a latest creation that I am now also selling on etsy.  I loved how they turned out and so did the mom who ordered them.
I created 2 coordinating t-shirts with this blooming designs for twins’ 1st birthday.  The mom loved them and so did my mom & I, since we collaborated on them!
I created this Butterfly Mobile for my daughter’s room and I love how it turned out.  Planning to make one for my son with a train and primary colors theme someday…
Thanks for having me as a guest!
