Hello Dear, would you tell us a little more about you?
Ok About me - My name is Rebekah but my friends call me Berry, it's a nickname I gained at work and have had for over 10 years, Hence my blog being called Berrlicious! I am soon to be 39 (the big 40 next year!) and am a married mum of 3, I have 2 girls and 1 boy. I live in Chester in the North of England with my family and our Siberian Husky.
What kind of craft are you into?
I am mostly a papercrafter, with my speciality being cards. I have dabbled in a bit of scrapbooking but cards are my biggest love! I do occasionally make bags and alter some items such as buckets or boxes too. I also love to bake and make sweet treats which I combine with my papercrafting to make gifts and saleable items on my facebook page/business.
do you have any tips for us?
My tips for everyone out there would be don't be too hard on yourself! We are our own worst critics! But art is subjective, everyone has a different style and what you create is unique. Colouring comes with practice and there is plenty of inspiration across the internet if ever you feel like your mojo is lacking!
I'm also a fan of choosing my papers and colours first, that way I can colour my image accordingly and choose my embellishments to fit. I always find this helps me but I am sure everyone has their own routine!
Any special future project?
Currently I am working on some end of year gifts for the kids to give to their teachers. I always like to give something handmade as I am sure they get plenty of bottles of wine, boxes of chocolates and flowers. it is always nice to receive something handmade! I gave out chutneys at Christmas and received grateful e mails from teachers for such thoughtful gifts! I also have some commissioned cards on the go, generally it is wedding or baby commission cards which are always lovely to make.
Give us 5 links of "5-need-to-know-blogs"
My 5 need to know blogs are:
- saturated canary http://saturatedcanary.blogspot.co.uk/ Krista not only creates beautiful things but writes the most beautiful posts about her family and her life.
-Hannah's hoobyblog http://hannashobbyblogg.blogspot.co.uk/ Hannah is just a teenager but her creations are some of the most beautiful I have seen, she often gives tutorials on how she colours with distress inks and makes the most beautiful gifts.
-Kit and Clowder http://kitandclowder.blogspot.co.uk/ if you haven't been to Alyce's blog you just need to go! Her colouring is just stunning and she runs her own classes online and her own community with challenges!
Where you take inspiration from?
I get inspired by blog hopping amongst the crafting community but also Pinterest, there is so much to see and make on there I love it!
What is your favourite material/brand/shop?
Do you have Facebook/instagram/pinterest/twitter? (give links, please!! we need to follow youu!)
give us a 3 items list that you NEED when you're creating!
My must have items when crafting are my pencils (I use prisma colours), my Collal glue ( I love how it is repostionable and rubs away if it gets on anything it shouldn't) and my distress ink or crackle paint.
What you love to do when your not blogging?
If I'm not creating or blogging i am making and baking in the kitchen or I am down the gym (Working off the baking!) I also work part time at Starbucks when I am not spending time with my family.
How long have you been blogging for?
I have been blogging for 5 years now and have been on many DT's including Kenny K, Pink Gem designs, Midweek Magnolias, Saturated Canary and also run my own challenge blog Divas by Design.
What you've learnt from blogging?
During my time blogging I have made so many crafting friends from around the world. I have learnt so many things from them and have found so many wonderful sources of inspiration and unique little shops for handmade goods too!
