Dori, from the Yellow House tagged me to participate in the Monday Blog Tour! Thank you, Dori :)
She asked me answer the following four questions, so without further ado:
What am I working on?
After a long hiatus I am working on a new bag design, inspired by a whimsical fabric I received recently. Some of my readers may remember that I started my handmade business designing bags, but due to economic factors switched to designing lounge wear and accessories instead. The bag I'm currently working on will be a one-of-a-kind creation and can be purchased directly through me/this blog. Stay tuned...
How does my work differ from others in its genre?
I know there are plenty of handmade shops offering floral lounge wear, but I would say that I have developed a signature style that cannot be copied that easily. A lot of thought goes into each piece, choosing fabric combinations and adding feminine details. Consequently I don't produce en masse and that's my selling point for buyers who appreciate special and unique items.
Why do I write what I do?
Okay, at first I did not get this question, but then this tag is a blog tour so I guess this question refers to blogging :) I've been at it for six years. I love writing, especially tutorials. I believe in sharing ideas - and I've got tons of those :) There is a certain satisfaction of coming up with an idea, be it sewing, papercrafting or even a recipe, implementing it and subsequently sharing it with my fellow bloggers :)
How does my writing process work?
Well, as far as my tutorials go it really starts as a sketch and a few keywords. Once I finish the project I mentally go through the process again (sometimes twice) and write the instructions directly in a blog post. It helps to view the photos I made of the project. I'm a visual person. Sometimes it comes together quickly, other times it takes up to two hours to finish a post. Either way I really enjoy writing!

This was so much fun, so I'd like to continue this blog tour by tagging Marieken of Invisible Crown (@crowninvisible) and Val of Miss Val's Creations (@valscreations) to answer the four questions above by next Monday 16th!
