The Talent {w&w creative team}

Winnie and Walter are in charge of building a cast of gifted creatives to provide inspiring projects.  Like any good production, without talented creative artists to bring life to the product it remains just an inanimate object.  These ladies breathe soul into our stamps by the art they create with them.  We call our innovative, inspiring troupe of artists The Talent.

Color combo I can’t get enough of: I love gray, gold, and pink lately.

On my desk/table right now is: All of my Winnie and Walter stamps!

I excel at: This was very hard for me to answer. I feel like I excel at thinking about everything I used to excel at when I was younger! I make a pretty mean lasagna though.

When I craft I: watch tv/movies; listen to music; listen to the voices in my head; and/or prefer silence: I listen to Pandora radio, and right now my favorite channel is Mumford & Sons. I also sing out loud. A lot.

My pictures are mostly of: My dog, Teddy, and trips that my husband and I take.

When I grow up I want to be: A few things would be fun: a good singer or a pet photographer or even getting a chance to wait tables again. So would winning the lottery. Or maybe I will turn perfectly wrinkly and white-haired enough that I could dress as Mrs. Claus during the holidays. But for now, I feel lucky to be in biostats.

More about Kelly:

Favorite snack(s) while creating: no food allowed in the craft room ... 1) I don't trust myself, and 2) I'm too wrapped up in crafting to eat

Color combo I can’t get enough of: gray/charcoal + a color; although seeing the way chocolate brown has gone, I probably shouldn't use gray so much

On my desk/table right now is: absolutely everything, with two release weeks back-to-back. Wire, a mason jar lid, scraps, wood veneer snowflakes that haven't managed to make their way onto a project yet, a remote for my new cd/i pod/radio player, my son's sock.

I excel at: math, and figuring out the quickest way to do something (unload the dishwasher, wait in line at Disney, make my Christmas cards, plan a route for errands)

When I craft I: watch tv/movies; listen to music; listen to the voices in my head; and/or prefer silence: listen to music ... Green Day, Metallica, Sting, Norah Jones, Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews, I can also do Pop Rock

My favorite crafting companion: My neighbor, Brenda! She's about 20 large steps away.

Don’t you dare take this away from me: Besides my family ... patterned paper, my Spyder coat and Ugg boots, my flea market purchases, my camera

My favorite crafting holiday/event: My friend Helen organizes card swaps (and a craft supply swap) with about 15 other ladies. It's so fun to be with people who understand how awesome the Silhouette is. I need to get them blogging though. Currently I'm the only one who does that.

My pictures are mostly of: My kids (candids, as they stopped posing for me many years ago), travels, and most recently my cards so I can post them on the blog

When I grow up I want to be: A well-traveled woman who knows how to knit and use the manual settings on her camera
