Why did you join Creator's Studio?
Somebody recommended it to me and it sounded exactly like something I would like to be a part of, if that person happens to be reading I would like to say thank you.
What's your favorite part of the Creator's Studio community?
Submitting the projects that I make and getting the feedback. Also I like the challenges and seeing what other people come up with as well as learning about the new Rust-Oleum products.
How would you describe yourself/occupation to a complete stranger?
I'm retired and I spend my time doing creative art projects as well as spending as much time as possible with my grandchildren.
What are your hobbies? What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I like to fairy-garden, paint on canvas, complete assorted paint projects and decorate my house.
What are your favourite Rust-Oleum products? How have they helped with your DIY projects?
I like all the Rust-Oleum products I've used so far especially the 2X Ultra Cover in all it's decorative shades, the wide range of colors makes it easy to match whatever your project calls for.
What interests you most about DIY projects?
I like how you can do really great projects and spend a lot less money than something bought ready made at retail, I enjoy saving money and personalizing things.
What's the best DIY project you have completed and how did you accomplish it?
I would have to say my front door spring wreath which was an original idea I came up with only because I was challenged. Creator's Studio is a great motivator to keep pushing your creativity to the next level.
What's the most difficult project you have tackled?
I would definitely say the wall quilt submission, I had to redo it 5 times to get it the way I wanted. I finally got it updated to how I like it but it took many revisions to get there.
If you could create any type of project (with no limitations), what would you design and why?
I would design a heated outdoor studio to do my projects in year-round because I think I would be able to do a lot more and have a better environment if I could see outside in every direction and have the sun coming in.
What's something about yourself that most people don't know about you?
I was born in Spain.
What's the best advice anyone has ever given you?
To think big.
What's your favorite film of all time?
It's a Wonderful Life
What's your favorite book right now?
On the Anvil by Max Lucado
What's your favorite type of food?
Sweet and sour chicken.
