An interview with Tiffany of Shabby Scraps Boutique

LolliShops asked…
“So many of us are mommies and wives and take care of our little families, when do you find the time for creating? Where do you go?”

Tiffany replied…

“Since I have two daughters age 9 and almost 13, finding time to create can be difficult. My favorite time to create is in the morning after everyone has left for the day. I quickly get my morning “household” duties accomplished, then I steal away upsatirs to my lovely craft room. I am lucky enought to have a space of my own, since we just built onto our house. When the children are out of school in the summer, like now, my time to create dwindles, but I still find snippets of time to make something. I leave my current projects out and at hand so I can work on them inbetween swimming lessons , laundry and playdates!”

LolliShops asked…
“I asked you to make a Flickr Mosaic of what is inspiring you right now: Can you tell us a little bit about where you draw your inspiration from? *Because I just love your jewelry!

Tiffany said…

“My inspiration really derives from two things : Texture and Color. I think these are the two most creative elements in a project. Of course I love anything that is vintage or has a vintage feel to it, so I try to incorporate that into whatever I am doing. I just love Flickr, because I am such a visually inspired person, I think photos are as much art as the artwork themselves!”

LolliShops asked…
“What are your three most favorite words? Not necessarily words you use the most but words that evoke something for you…”

Tiffany replied…

“serendipity, faith and shiggle. Since the first two are self explanitory, I think I need only explain the third. It is a combination of the words “shake” and “wiggle” and my daughter made it up at the age of four. We have used it in our vocabulary ever since, and everytime I do, I cannot help but laugh and smile, it is my happy word.”

LolliShops asked…
“What is your favorite room or corner in your house and why…

Tiffany answered…

“You would think my obvious answer would be my craft room, but it isn’t. Although I love that room dearly, I have to say my master bedroom is my favorite room in the house. Through a happy accident during construction, it ended up being double the size we planned with a lovely sitting room off of it, with french doors and a view of our garden. I have decorated it in soft creamy whites and have some of my favorite vintage treasures housed there, including Nadia, my dress form! My bed is a towering marshmallow of downy comforters, and I always feel calm and relaxed and comforted in that room. “

Finally, LolliShops asked…
“Lastly, what excites you the most about LolliShops (shameless promotion here on my part)…”

To which Tiffany gracefully replied…

“For me the most exciting part of Lollishops is the concept of uniting like minded sellers and individuals in a “frou frou friendly” atmosphere. The web can be huge (afterall, it isn’t called world wide for nothing!) and it can be very difficult to find things sometimes. You have to wade through page after page of things before you find what you were looking for. Having the Lollishops collaboration is like sitting down with your favorite magazine, each page you flip you know you will like what comes next.”

How sweet was this interview? I am looking forward to meeting Tiff at Silver Bella this year!
I think she is a perfect example of the wide range of creations, supplies and vintage that would fall under the category…
