Welcome to Saturday & another designer interview; this week we're going to meet Shel of Shel Belle Scraps!
Tell us a little about yourself & your family. I'm a thirty-something single gal who lives in Minnesota and loves it. No hubby or kids, but I do spoil my dog, two nieces, and one nephew rotten!
What part of designing comes easiest to you? Color schemes are always the easy part for me.
If you’re running low on design mojo, how do you kick-start your creativity? I step away from the computer, look through magazines and websites, check out what my friends have posted on pinterest, listen to music, go for a run — whatever it takes to restore my mojo. I never know when inspiration might strike, so I always carry a little notebook with me so I can jot stuff down when it does hit.
What is your favorite kit you've designed? Amelia has been my favorite so far. I love the colors and the fun doodles in it; I absolutely love the way it all came together.
What kits/products do you have in the works? I've got a couple kits in the works including a holiday-themed one, a kit for little boys, and one for little girls.
What's the best movie you've seen in the last year? So hard to choose, but it’s a tie between The King’s Speech, The Help, and Bridesmaids.
What is your favorite memory from childhood? There are a lot to choose from but some of my favorite memories involve being at Twins baseball games with my brother, parents, and grandparents. My grandfather had season tickets for a few years, so I got to see a lot of games — including Game 7 of the 1991 World Series when the Twins won it all!
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you make your home? I love Minneapolis and all it has to offer — arts, sports, culture, entertainment, schools, etc. So luckily, I’m right where I want to be. But if I had to choose another city, I’d probably choose London, England. I love it there.
Why is there fuzz on a tennis ball? Hmm..My guess is to slow it down a bit.
If you were a type of food, what type of food would you be? Something that’s good for you but also has a kick to it. Maybe spicy tuna sushi or salsa.
Thanks Shel! Head on over to the store to see all of Shel's wonderful products & don't forget to follow Shel on her blog, Facebook page, & Twitter account!
