14. What artists, past or present, inspire your work?

I LOVE Meg from Moglea. Her cards are what I personally give out to my friends.

15. If you had to choose a spirit animal what would it be and why?

My friends would definitely pick a hamster because I’m small and panicky, haha.

16. When was the last time you laughed really hard and why?

Can’t remember the specific moment, but definitely at something my husband said 🙂

17. How would you spend your dream Saturday?

Slow start with coffee, a simple breakfast, and walking around the backyard in the sun. Take some social media pics while the lighting is good in the AM. Make lunch with my husband, meet up with some friends, and hopefully this is all in the background of a very clean house 😉

18. If you weren’t allowed to work for 12 months, what would you do?

That is a REALLY tough question because I truly love working. I think it would be 12 months of torture, haha. I’m not sure- I guess travel for a week to look at pretty things, and come back and deep clean a part of the house, and repeat?!

19. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?

At the moment, Japan or Taiwan!

20. Was this questionnaire too long?

It was okay 😉
