January’s Designer Spotlight: Miss Mis Designs!

Whew… where did January go?? Between me being crazy busy and some gremlin activity with my laptop, Misty almost didn’t get her moment in the Spotlight, but there’s still a tiny bit of month left so let’s sit down with her and get to know her a little better.

J: How long have you been designing?

M: Ten years this month! [Congratulations!!]

J: What’s your design process?

M: I’m a full-time student, mom and manager, so my design process lately is sit down and make a day of it. Plan papers, elements and knock it out.

J: What do you use to create your designs?

M: I use PSCC some, but my  favorite is PSE 7. SEVEN, lol!

J: Describe your design workspace.

M: Right now my mom is living with us and taking my office space, so I’m currently at a small desk in the middle of the dining room. At least I have snacks when I design!

J: What motivates and inspires you as a designer?

M: It’s my creative outlet. I have a very mundane real life job; this allows me to be artsy and creative.

J: What kit currently available in your GingerScraps store is your favourite? Why?

M: My favorite is “My Tribe”. I feel like most people can relate to having that ‘tribe’ of people that help them in everyday life. Kids, work, LIFE!

[psst…. it’s on SALE!!]

J: Do you craft outside the digital world?

M: I crochet blankets. I can crochet and relax in front of the tv for maybe ten minutes a day. Everyone gets baby blankets for their new littles.

J: What is the last book you read?

M: I am currently reading Present Over Perfect. It’s sooo insightful.

J: Tea or coffee?

M: Coffee through the day but a hot cup of tea before bed. 

J: Do you have a guilty pleasure?

M: I like a good casino. Eek. I do like to go and splurge $40 or so and sometimes even win!

J: If time travel were possible, where would you go and why?

M: I would have to go to the future. I’m not much of a history person. There isn’t a specific time that intrigues me.

J:  What’s your favourite thing about GingerScraps?

M: The team and the community! There isn’t ever any bickering, or drama. We truly do have a fantastic group of people. 

J:  If you could have any super power, what would it be?

M: I would love to be able to be in more than one place at a time. Multiplicity. I am a mom, a full time Sales Manager, and full time student. I need more of me to get it all done. I’d have one more that is just sleeping all the time. 

Thanks for chatting with me, Misty!
