Doctor's De-stress Dose

Hi Friends,
Our today's Fascinating Friday feature is a  very talented and amazingly resourceful lady Dr Sonia Suprabha. She has taken the art of recycling to a whole new level and is a whiz at different interactive pop -up -cards & fancy folds: you name it and she almost always has a tutorial for it. If you were to Google for punched paper flowers then her blog will be among the top blogs you will notice and so its no wonder that she has a huge fan following. Her blog is a definite must visit for all the newbie crafters/bloggers. One always gets to learn so much from her and her creative crafty six year old daughter :) So without further ado lets get to know a little more about her :-
Name: Dr Sonia Suprabha

1. Tell us a little about yourself ?
I am an ENT Surgeon with a crafty 6 year old daughter whose idea of fun is " Amma
lets craft"!   

2. When and how did you start crafting?
Dear friends unlike most of my blogger friends who have a crafty childhood I knew absolutely nothing except to study all through childhood and even adulthood! When I did my ENT post graduation at AIIMS New Delhi the training was so stressful that I needed some outlet.One day I picked up an emboss painting kit from a local fancy store and to my delight it was a great stress buster!!

3. What inspires you to create?
All kinds of crazy stuffs plus my daughter's demands and her admiration! And blogging has become a big impetus to craft and share!

4. What is your favorite technique? Why?
My favorite techniques keep on changing but I think my all time love is interactive cards and 3D projects + throw in a bit of recycling!

5. Who are your favorite paper crafters at this time? Why?
Oh that is a tough one...I follow quite a lot of blogs and in each crafter I find something to admire and look up to!

6. Describe your style?
In one word that would be "experiments". I keep trying out new styles and crafts and love to share my experiments on my blog!

7.Are you on any design team at this time? Have you been published on any magazine or online journal?
I generally don't apply for or accept DT positions as I feel I may not be able to do justice due to my other professional commitments. About publications...something special is in the works but I am not sure I am allowed to talk about it!!

8.What is your favorite thing about creating?
Stress busting and mind diversion from life and work pressures!

Well, didn't I tell you she is a very interesting and talented  lady :) Just look at the gorgeous doll house which has been recycled from a chocolate box and  for which she has very generously shared a step by step tutorial in her blog. All her creations show her love and her passion towards crafts and are done very beautifully.... So please do leave her some love in wonderful comments :) Fabulous Friday!!
