Today you get to meet Sarah from My Simple Obsession. She happens to be one of our final three contestants, so watch for her final project this week! Here are her answers to the questions I asked:
#1 What is your favorite kind of project? -also- What is your favorite project you have ever completed?
My Favorite kind of project is creating knock offs. If you know me in person, I tend to lead toward expensive items. I don’t know what it is. I look at something and fall in love before I look at price tags. And if it’s something I just have to have, I try to find a way to make it myself. I like being able to walk into a store and go, “I can make that for a lot less than they are selling it for!”
I think by far my favorite project that I have tackled is my Daughters Nursery. Although it was 3 years ago, it is my favorite room in the house. It could be because it’s the only one finished. Ha-ha.
#2 If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I would go to Europe. I love all the buildings and history that they preserve. I’m always fascinated by our history and the stories they tell.
#3 If you had one day to do anything you wanted to do, what would it be?
Anything? Haha. I would do absolutely nothing. Just have the house all to myself. It’s a rare thing to get once you become a mom.
#4 When you were younger, what did you think you would be when you grew up, and did it happen?
When I was younger I thought I was going to be a high school art teacher. I started out that way in college then shifted gears to a Graphic Designer. So, even though I’m not an Art teacher I’d like to think I do some sort of teaching to all my readers with my tutorials I put up on the blog.
#5 Favorite medium? (paint, sewing, power tools,etc..)
My favorite medium to work in is wood! I love anything to do with wood, from furniture, to small crafts.
#6 Why did you start your blog? How long ago did you start it?
I started my blog to be able to show my creative side to anyone that was willing to read it. I really enjoy making things and I have always gotten questions like, “ How did you make that?” or “ I can’t believe you made that!” I think everyone is able to be crafty in his or her own way. If you have the ability to learn, why not learn how to make something? I started my blog about a little over a year ago. So I’m very new to the blogging world. It has been addicting at times and I have even gone through withdrawals recently since I’ve been out from blogging for the past 3 months or so. When I found out I was pregnant with our second, I really didn’t think I would become so sick. I wouldn’t wish chronic morning sickness on anyone!!! Even though I am new, it has been nice to be able to find a niche and explore posting possibilities lately.
#7 Tell me your favorite joke.
I’m not one to tell jokes, although I hear more than my fair share from “The Man”. He tends to tell me jokes that he thinks are SO, SO, SO funny and when I don’t laugh he’s like, “How could you not think that’s funny?” I think I tend to laugh more at him then I do at his actual joke. One of his favorites is, “What’s brown and sticky?” Answer: A Stick! Please tell me I’m not the only one that would be laughing at my husband for even telling that joke? He’s a kid at heart so you got to love him for that.
