Cackle is an AWESOME artist.  Well deserved feature.  I, too, am luck enough to have some of her pieces.  I have that "Aura Detector" pictured here!!  It's absolutely perfect!

Congrats to you, Cackle, for the the feature.  Can't wait to see the next wonderful project you post!

I am a big fan of yours as well!  Not only is your stuff fun and beautifully done, you are very encouraging and willing to share ideas and techniques with us...you have pushed me to expand my skills and try different things that I am not 100% comfortable with...and those are all good things!

Congrats for being featured...loved reading a bit more about you! Cheesy

We are SO excited about our featured artist this quarter. Not only is she an incredibly talented and prolific crafter, she is also an amazing inspiration and wonderful cheerleader for all of us.

If you've ever joined a craftalong or visited the craftalong boards here in Miscellaneous, you know the amount of work and love that alwaysinmyroom dedicates to motivating participants and providing support to every member here.

We are thrilled to recognize the contributions that she makes every day to our little Miscellaneous corner and the rest of the Craftster community.

Check out our interview with alwaysinmyroom!!

How long have you been crafting?  What's the first thing you remember crafting?

I started drawing when I was about 7 years old, so that would mean I have been crafting for 50 years!  That might make me the Mesuthela of Craftster...but I definitely don't feel like it since everyone here keeps me young at heart!

The drawing was of the poppies in Flanders field where many of the men from World War I were buried. I still have the picture!

A few years later when I was 10, my mom taught me to knit...crazy, but as a kid, you are fearless...I made a Barbie dress in three colors using size 1 needles...and yeah, I still have the dress!


(This is the actual dress!!!)

What's your favorite media?

Definitely fabric...I love to quilt and sew...bags, stuffies, clothes, curtains, dotees...I enjoy finding new ways to use up my huge stash of fabrics

What inspires you?

Probably things found in nature...what a pat answer this is, since every color and texture can be found in nature...ha...I see color combos in everyday things like leaves, the ocean, a sunset...it helps me with choosing colors for my projects



Do you have a crafty/creative philosophy?

I believe that you create what you believe...if you believe you will fail, you will...so why not believe you can do it?  Try anything...be fearless...so what if it is not "prefect"...the process will teach you how to do it better next time...you will gain confidence, pride, a sense of achievement...just go for it



On what other boards can Craftster members find your work posted?

I have probably posted most items on knitting, crocheting, paper and the swap boards...I really take bad pictures so I tend to just post to the craftalongs...I also make so many similar things that I don't want to post every hat I make, for instance Cheesy


(That's okay, we'll share your hats for you Smiley)

What's your favorite creation that you've posted to Craftster?

It was on of the first items I made for a swap...it was my little geisha pincushion...I loved making it, and I respected the talent of the receiver...she went to a good home, but I still visit her picture once in a while



What's your favorite item on Craftster created by someone else?

There is so much talent here...this is not a fair question!

However, in recent months, I have had my socks knocked off by the imagination and talent of sheepblue.  Her Teesha Moore inspired projects are perfect for a fabric hoarder like me...I love the bright colors, the messiness, the details...the Harry Potter inspired bag she did still takes my breath away.

Have you invented a machine that allows you to craft at the speed of light? If not, how in the world do you make so many amazing things so quickly?!

ha ha At my age, I have decided to make crafting a priority...It is part of my daily life, just like brushing my teeth is!  I am never going to have a spotless house, or tons of purchased things to take care of...I have dumped most of the stuff in my life that wastes my time or that does not bring me joy...I am a master of multi-tasking, and I have a great, supportive hubby to share life's daily grind--he shops and cooks and does laundry! I watch tv and craft and eat bon bons... Cheesy



Thanks for being such an inspiration and support to so many of us! We love you always, always Smiley.

Woohoo!  And she totally deserves this recognition.  Her work is amazing and I am so thankful for her support.  She devotes so much energy and time to her craftalong participants!  I have no idea how she balances it all.  Thanks alwaysinmyroom, you are FABULOUS!
