We are inspired by the world around us and love to showcase new and exciting artist, designers and crafters and our guest designer series is a great way to inspire our Crew as well as each one of you to try something different, show off a new style or help you think outside of your creative box, so from time to time we like to invite crafters to be our Guest Designer/Blogger for a month to challenge us to see things in a different way and so that we may learn more about our products through the eyes of a new designer. This month we have invited Olga Kravets. Mixed Media is big these days and we love that so many of our basic products are perfect for simple and clever crafty projects.

No, I think that now it is not. But I dream about it and confident that soon it will be
What advice would you give to someone who gets in a creative slump?
Rest is the best assistant. To take a short break and get away. Need get bored and distracted, then again want to do what you love (or something else)
What is the oddest inspiration you have used for one of your projects?
Probably it was a meat grinder! I loved the details, then I dismantled it, looked and used parts of it in my project!
Tell us one thing that people might not know about you.
I love sports and crossfit, I love the large weight and iron! But I’m small and very vulnerable
How often do you create?
I try to do something every day, but also take breaks to relax and to get inspiration
Do you jot down your ideas before you do them or do you create as you go?
No, I never think through in advance, the project is created on the table, but before, I always have the idea. Something inspires me and I want to make a new project
Olga made this fantastic project using Tattered Angels Mists and 7gypsies Architextures.
