February Featured Designer Part 1 – Aimee Harrison Designs

So crazy to believe February is more than half over. Have you been collecting the daily downloads from our featured designers this month?

Today I have Part 1 of my Q & A session with our designers. Today we’ll chat with Aimee Harrison Designs.

How long have you been designing?

I have been designing since July 2009.

What made you decide to design?

I had just started scrapbooking digitally, from paper, and decided that I wanted to create my own kits after a few weeks of scrapping. It really spoke to me.

What do you use to create your designs (program, additional tools, etc.)?

I use Adobe Photoshop.

Describe your design workplace.

I have a big desk in my bedroom with a printer/scanner, a second computer and an aquarium for my two frogs next to me.

What motivates and inspires you as a designer?

Telling stories is what motivates me. Color inspires me. History, Geography do too.

What is your favorite kit currently in your GS store and why?

I really love the soft morning colors of my latest kit, I Love Mornings. Morning is my favorite time of day and to me it really inspires me to want to create.

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Oh, that’s hard, LOL! One thing I absolutely love is my boyfriends steak taco’s. I also love avocado and egg toast. I could eat both of those daily.

What is your favorite game or sport to watch and play?

I love high school and college wrestling. Not WWF. But real, Roman Greco style wrestling. I was the wrestling manager while in high school and the sport still is the most exciting for me to watch.

What did you want to be when you were small?

I wanted to be either and Archaeologist or an artist. I feel that I fulfilled my dreams. I majored in Anthropology in College and spent a lot of time doing Archaeology as well as being a designer!

Aside from necessities, what one thing could you not go a day without?

I cannot go without coffee. I don’t even drink it to stay awake, I drink it for the delicious taste!

Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?

I think that Winona Rider would be a good fit. Sort of quirky and fun. A bit off balance but in a good way, LOL!

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

Warning: needs sleep and lots of it

What celebrity would you like to meet at Starbucks for a cup of coffee?

I would meet Jane Goodall. She is one in a million.

Thanks Aimee!!
