November 28, 2008 in Announcements

We hope you are all recovering well from your turkey holiday. For some of you, yesterday was just an ordinary day. Either way, I hope you had a wonderful day and are looking forward to reading our latest blog posts. 

I'd like to introduce you to Ms. Aimee. She is the creative talent behind the wonderful kit that adorned our CT ad at DST. Her embroidered crafts are just amazing. Some of you have already sent me a PM about her kit. Read the interview 'cause she reveals the name of this adorable kit.


Yes, this is a picture of Aimee. She is a creative genius for her age and we got her parents' permission to exploit her art. LOL. Just kidding. She swears she doesn't have a recent pic.

What kind of artist are you?  I guess I'm a "little bit of everything" artist. Embroidery is probably what I'm most known for. My embroidery book "Doodle-Stitching" came out about a year ago. But besides that, I love watercolors, digital painting, sewing plush, clay sculpture;  I just love trying out new techniques. I'm always coming up with new stuff for my etsy shop.

How long have you been an artists/designer? As long as I can remember. I have always loved drawing and making things. I picked up sewing and embroidery again though about 5 years ago.

What got you interested in this kind of designing (for digital)? I do mostly digital work in my job as a greeting card designer, so I guess it was a natural progression for me to merge handmade and digital.Aimee3_2

Where do you find your inspiration for your designs? Everywhere! I am particularly inspired by nature, my dreams and other artists online. There are so many talented people out there! Seeing everyone else's projects (at places like flickr and craftster.org) inspires me to work on my own.

Aimee2_3 What is your favorite thing to design and why? I love to do anything that comes completely from my own mind. It's fun to work on projects for other people, but the stuff I do just for myself is my favorite. I try to save time to work on my own things and try not to think about what anyone else will think of them, just make them for my own enjoyment.

Do you have any designers that you admire? There are hundreds! Some artists I'm particularly enamored with right now are Badbird, Mimilove, and MrMuju.

What has been your favorite kit to design so far and why? It's hard to pick one! My Aimee1Woodland Whimsy set is a fave. I especially love woodland imagery, leaves and trees and cute animals. There is so much to be inspired by in forests, they are so magical.
