Jill Bliss Interview+Giveaway
Since 2001 Jill Bliss has been taking everyday items and turning them in to unique treasures. Stop by her booth this December 4th and 5th at Seattle Center.
UCU: What’s one thing you wish you had known at your first craft show?
JB: um, i've been doing them so long i no longer remember the first one! "always be prepared for the unexpected and meet it with a smile" is always good advice!
UCU: If you have pets, introduce them and tell us a bit about them!
JB: you can follow along with some of the adventures of my dog, lucy, on my blog. she often comes with me to the outdoor summer sales events - she even has her own set of fans! but for indoor winter sales events, she spends time with friends at her favorite play-all-day kennel instead.
UCU: What item are you most excited to be offering at UCU Winter 2010?
JB: more posters! more notecards! new art panels! an explosion of pacific northwest nature paper goods!
UCU: If you could sum up your work in one word, what would that be?
JB: one word? that's too hard! oh wait, many people have used the word "soothing" to describe my work of the past year.
UCU: What are you nibbling on as the snow falls this winter?
JB: saltines are a big favorite this year so far!
UCU: Favorite handmade item you have? It could be made by you, gifted to you or something you picked up.
JB: i still love the duvet cover i made a few years ago from my favorite ikea fabric.
