Alright guys onto our next awesome crafter. She is a queen at multitasking. She is a fabulous mother,amazing crafter and overall just wonderful friend to get to know on the site. Check out her projects HERE!

Name:Trish Lawarence
Site Name: Creativemind
Location: Alabama

This lovely lady does all kinds of fun projects from drawing portraits to desinging beautiful wallpaper for your computer screen, from making bound journals to jewlery. She's done it all...well as far as I could see and I love seeing what she comes up with. Ms. Trish is great in swaps, both hosting and participating. So sit back and read what she has to say.


What made you decide to start crafting?
I always liked art starting from a very young age, mostly drawing, but I kinda got bored with just that, so I started learning different things. I'm self-taught so whenever there was something I liked, and I would rather make it myself than buy it, I researched it and find out how to make it or come up with my own idea, which was mostly the case. So the more stuff I made and I liked the end result, the more I wanted to create.

What is/are your inspirations with the things you create? I'm inspired by a lot of things, like nature, other art pieces that I see, and basically just anything and everything around me.

Do you have a favorite craft you enjoy doing?
Oh gosh, I do so much that I don't have just one favorite, but if I had to choose, it would be drawing and jewelry making, and yeah that's more than one fav.

What is a typical day/week for you?
Most of the time I will craft all day with a little bit of household chores thrown in between craft ideas. My older kids that are still home help out with the autistic one, so I have more time to create, which is all I like to do these days, but I can multi-task like nobody's business.

What is it like to have a place online to sell the things you love making?(what is your online store link)
It's really cool to know that people like my stuff enough to buy it, so that means more to me than just making a sale.
I have two shops:

Other than crafting what other hobbies do you have?
I like singing and dancing, the dancing mostly to work up a sweat. I have a few pounds I need to loose. :)

What are your thoughts on our favorite crafting site www.cutoutandkeep.net?
It's just awesome! I have been to other sites, but CO+K is the only one I keep coming back to all day every day. And the people are also great as well as their crafts. I call it my online family!

Where do you see yourself ten years from now?
Haha, hopefully more established and running my own craft business locally with other local artist.

Lastly, I will let you ask me two questions and I will answer them for you.

What is your favorite craft?
My favorite crafting will always be jewlery making. No matter what other things I wander off too I will always find myself making a pair of earrings or gluing something on a ring blank lol

If there was a craft that you would like to learn, what would it be?
I would love to learn knitting and crocheting!!!
