Thanks for the amazingly great write ups!
OK blog readers! I need a favor:
I am going to be interviewed by Jennifer Louden on Sunday for her radio show on Sirius Martha Stewart Radio. I am excited about that, but I was asked to submit questions to her. My brain is mush right now and I can't even think of one thing. If you have a question you'd like me to answer can you post it in the comments for me? It would be much appreciated!
Thanks guys! These are all awesome questions! keep them coming! Any ones I don't talk about in the interview Paul and I will do a Q&A podcast or maybe two Q&A podcasts! Oh! And the interview will be live on Sunday at 11am EST with call in for questions 1-866-675-6675. even if you don't have Sirius, when you call, you can hear the show over the phone so you'll feel plugged in and you can ask your question live on the show! I'll post all the info again as we get closer. Thanks again for your help!
Thank you once again for all your wonderful comments and emails about our little Maggie. You have all touched me at a time when I really needed it. Thank you!
Who were your artistic inspirations growing up?
How did you develop your unique style?
Who are some of your favorite current artists?
What hobbies do you have besides your art?
Are any other members of your family artistic?
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be and why?
I would like to know the answers to these as well...teehee!
As one who has your books and played with your techniques,some successfully some not (my fault not yours), I would like to know this one.
But then, that could cause me to blush. ::grinning sheepishly::
Here are a few off the top of my head.
1)If you could switch places with anyone in the world for 1 day who would it be and why?
2) Your biggest wish has just been granted by a magical Genie....what did you wish for?
How do you manage your time, especially when you were self-represented? Working from home, the temptations are endless for distrations...how do you balance them?
What do you think about artists using ebay or etsy, etc. as outlets for self-representation vs. galleries?
From a consumer's point of view, I'd most like to know how to make the beautiful things you create.

Oh, and on a serious note, where do you think this style of collage will take you next?
Looks like you're getting some great press! :)
BTW: Thanks for the comment on my blog...
Oh! And the interview will be live on Sunday at 11am EST with call in for questions. I'll post all the info as we get closer.
thanks again for your help!
You were working in a Victorian style for several years, and now you have created a whimsical Poppet style. Do you see this as an evolution or a revolution in your work?
Are there any dangers in being closely identified with one particular style or medium?
How do you maintain such a busy schedule?
Thanks for the opportunity to ask questions!
my one simple question: what is the ONE feeling you get when you are done with a piece? ranging from pride, accomplishment, satisfaction, renewal, the list is endless...........good luck cutie! hugs, rach
I love you podcasts....I can't get enough of them...I went out a purchased a MP3 Player just so I could listen to them...can't wait for your future podcast....your husband does an excellent job a interviewer/host!
You (like Martha and so many others) are sooo tuned in with your pets...what do you think they give you? (serentity, clarity,distraction?)
If you are close to a deadline but your piece isn't quite right how do you deal with it? do you rush, do you wait and get it 'right' albeit late? what do you do if midway you want to change direction?
How often do you take classes? do you take them as an artist-student to learn new technique or do you take them as a student teacher to learn to be a better instructor?
Many artists like to give back to their community (artistic community and physical community) How do you 'give back'?
One of your (and mine!) guilty pleasures is Project Runway...it's starting again...do you enjoy the designing, the drama, the creating?...have you ever designed clothing?
You travel alot...how do you recharge after a trip?
I'm really sorry about little Maggie. I hope you feel all a little bit better each day.
And congratulations for the good news!!
