July Featured Designers

Welcome to July. We have TWO fabulous designers featured this month, Leaving a Legacy Designs and Ponytails Designs. They were both gracious enough to answer some fun questions for us this month, so let’s just jump right in. First we’ll chat with Kimberly of Leaving a Legacy Designs.

If you had a warning label, what would yours say?

Sleeps a lot and speaks her mind…can be kept happy with chocolate and scrapbooking.

I am pretty happy with my life, mistakes and all. I feel like each fall has taught me something new and I don’t think I would change it.

Hmm..I am not sure I have just one. Love a good movie…Hunger Games, 50 First Dates and Sweet Home Alabama are in my top 10.

Do you love or hate rollercoasters?

Strongly dislike.

Now, let’s talk to Natasha of Ponytails Designs.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

Europe, especially Great Britain and France. I’ve studied a lot European history and would just love to see some of these places I’ve read about.

If you had a warning label, what would yours say?

Warning: do not approach in the morning until coffee is in hand.

What is one thing you will never do again?

Drink tequila… I think that speaks for itself. lol

What’s your favorite movie?

The Sound of Music

Do you love or hate rollercoasters?

Love them!

Do you believe there is intelligent life in outer space?

Yes, there probably is. I think it’s rather egocentric to believe that we’re the only intelligent life in that great wide universe.

What was the last thing you ate?

Toast with home-made strawberry jam.

If you were a crayon, what color would you be?

Red… fire engine red.

What’s your biggest pet peeve?

Rudeness

Pirates or Ninjas?

Pirates

Country or City?

Definitely country

Morning or Night?

Night

Indoors or Outdoors?

Outdoors… even better if that includes sunshine and a beach.

Chocolate or Vanilla?

Chocolate

Cats or Dogs?

Dogs for sure. Not a cat person, although I have nothing against them per se. I like them well enough when they’re living in the barn.

Who did you look up to as a kid?

I had a couple of really great teachers that I admired in high school. One was my English teacher and the other my English Lit teacher. They both taught me so much and were really great people.

What is the one thing that makes you happy despite any mood?

Sunshine, and hearing my little one’s laugh. It’s completely infectious.

Do you have any tattoos? If yes what and where are they- If no do you want any and what would you get?

Ugh… yes I do! I have a ying-yang symbol on my upper left shoulder/back area, a butterfly on my left hip, and a Celtic design toe ring on my right second toe. I got them all for a reason but now that I’m not exactly in my 20’s anymore, I kind of wish I didn’t have them. The toe ring I see all the time of course, but the other two I can’t see unless I’m looking in the mirror. I’ll catch a glimpse of one in a photo every so often and it always surprises me. I king of forget they’re there.

Name one television character that you simply adore?

Sheldon from Big Bang Theory. He’s hilarious!

Thanks Natasha!! Jump over and check our her GS Store, Facebook Page, Blog, and Pinterest.

Also, both designers have added a coupon to various days of the Daily Download. The sneak peek looks absolutely fabulous.

Have a great rest of the weekend.
