Around the World Blog Hop

Hello friends! I've been tagged in the Around the World Blog Hop by my friend and fellow blogger, Rachel Dreher of Quiltineering (an awesome quilting blog). The hop is basically a virtual game of tag where the person tagged shares a little about themselves and their blog and then tags three other bloggers that they find inspirational to do the same thing. 

Without further ado, here are my three blogger nominees that you should check out ASAP.

Jenna Puckett of Kitty Cat Stevens

I met Jenna in a book arts class at MTSU several years ago in a book arts class at MTSU. While we talked a bit during class and I enjoyed Jenna's work (and overall awesomeness), we didn't really connect until later when Jenna invited me to a Nashville blogger meet-up. Jenna is smart and creative and blogs about her book binding adventures on her blog, Kitty Cat Stevens.

Lauren Taylor of Lladybird

Lauren and I met at a Nashville blogger meet-up (yep that same one that Jenna invited me to) and I've been a fan of hers ever since. She's incredibly talented and equally as kind. She runs a great blog called Lladybird that chronicles her sewing escapades. 

Kimmie Jones of That Girl in the Wheelchair 

I also met Kimmie at a Nashville blogger meet-up (yea yea same meet-up) and look forward to seeing her at every one I attend. Kimmie is one of the funniest people I've ever met and is very easy to talk to (especially if you like talking about 90's pop culture, documentaries, and other fantastic topics). She shares her musings on her blog that girl in the wheelchair. 

And now, here are my questions/answers.

1. What am I working on?

Currently, I'm working on a top-secret project for my soon-to-be-born niece aka Baby Kraus and am also working on more minimalist embroidered pieces, layered maps, and Artist Features for the blog.

2. Why do I write/create what I do?

I run this blog for the pure joy of it. I genuinely love getting to know contemporary artists and sharing their thoughts and work. 

Thanks again to Rachel for tagging me so that I could share about my work and other wonderful bloggers!
