UCU: What day of show traditions are you bringing to UCU 2010?
BCB: I always start the day with the biggest coffee I can find. That, and my lucky striped kneesocks!
UCU: If you have pets, introduce them and tell us a bit about them!
Beauregard is my bagle pup (beagle + basset), who serves as security and (sniffy) investigations.
Andre is grumpy middle-management + complaint department.
Stella is Vice President of Cute and Counselor of the Nap.
UCU: If you could sum up your work in one word, what would that be?
BCB: Squooshy. Fun. Colorful. (I can't pick one!)
UCU: What gift are you most excited to give this year?
BCB: I'm crocheting little lucha libre dudes for my little brothers. They are totally into wrestling right now and I love that I can give them a handmade gift that they'll really play with!
UCU: What are you nibbling on as the snow falls this winter?
BCB: Peppermint mochas, gluten free sugar cookies and many many apple crisps.
UCU: Favorite handmade item you have? It could be made by you, gifted to you or something you picked up.
BCB: For my wedding, my husband's grandma's best friend gave us a crocheted throw. We snuggled under it for the first few years of our marriage and now I keep it in a maple chest. I just love it to pieces.
