Featured Etsy Artist of the week - HarvestMoonPaper

This week's featured Etsy artist is HarvestMoonPaper Creations. Her Etsy shop is here. HarvestMoonPaper also has a blog here.

What is your craft?
I love papercrafting!!! I do alot of cards but I love just about anything paper! I make paper bag albums, mini albums, scrapbook pages, decorate gift bags, tag albums...anything I can think of really!

How long have you been doing your particular craft?
I've been papercrafting for fun for about 4 years. This year I decided to get a bit more serious after friends and family convinced me to sell my work, so I searched around and found ETSY!!!

Where do you find inspiration? Who inspires you to create?
People who request specific items inspire me. I'm working on a wedding scrapbook for a friend, and talking to her and knowing her personality is what I like to use for inspiration. It also depends on the type of item I am making. But when I need a boost to my creativity I look through magazines.....those I find truly inspiring, especially for colour combinations.

Where do you do your craft?
I've set up a small (well medium now!) corner in my basement where I craft. I have a mini desk beside me too for my daughter to craft while mommy is "working". It's quite spread out and not very organized.....I'm hoping to remedy that come the fall when all my children are in school full time.

What is your most favorite item you have ever created?
I don't have a favorite item so far. I love all the things I make, especially for other people, because of the feeling I put into it. I didn't just run to the mall and buy it, I took the time to make it especially just for you!
Here are a couple of items featured in HarvestMoonPaper's shop.

I would like to thank HarvestMoonPaper very much for allowing her shop to be featured here on my blog this week!
