Happy 2017. Hard to believe it’s a new year. With a new year (month) comes a new GingerScraps Featured Designer. This month we are talking to Natasha of Ponytails Designs.
How did you get started in digital scrapbooking?
After my daughter was born I was looking for something quiet to do while baby napped. A friend had tried digital and I thought it was a cool idea. I gave it a try and was hooked.
What made you decide to design?
I’ve always been a creative person and so I thought I’d give it a try. I love the whole process from planning to the actual design work itself.
What do you use to create your designs (program, additional tools, etc.)?
I mainly use Photoshop CC. I’ve been trying to learn AI but am finding it really frustrating.
Describe your design workplace.
I have a small desk in the kitchen where I set up my laptop. From there I’m fairly central in the house and can keep an eye on my daughter, as well as be a part of whatever else is going on in the house.
What is your favorite thing about designing?
I love the creative process.
What is your favorite kit currently in your GS store and why?
My favorite is probably Country Girl. I designed that completely for myself. It reflects who I am and what my life is all about.
What’s your favorite holiday?
Summer holidays for sure. Does that count? lol
What is your favorite family holiday tradition?
Our annual summer RV trip we take with friends. We take 2-3 weeks and explore new places and definitely new wineries!
If you had a warning label, what would yours say?
Do not attempt to approach in the morning unless coffee has been consumed.
Aside from necessities, what one thing could you not go a day without?
Coffee, for sure.
How would your friends describe you?
Friendly, warm, welcoming, and always smiling
What would you prefer as a second home: Mountain cabin, beach house, or big city condo?
Beach house for sure. In my dream world I’d have a ranch next to a beach on Maui.
