Stunning Suzanne

Hello pretty ladies ^_^ We've a rocking artist this Friday... you'll absolutely fall in love with her creations at first sight!! Her blog and projects are very clean and refreshing,,, Without further ado, let's introduce you to the sweetest eva Suzanne:
Name: Suzanne Dahlberg 
1. Tell us a little bit about yourself and your blog.
I have been married to my best friend for seven years, and together we have an adorable dog named Teddy. We live in the Boston area, where we were born and raised and where I work doing cancer research in biostatistics and thoracic oncology. I share my creations on my blog at freshlynoted.com

2. How and why did you start crafting?
I've always enjoyed crafting, but after graduate school I met some wonderful ladies at a local craft store and they kindly took me under their wing and taught me the basics as I crafted my way through wedding preparations. After I moved away, I started blogging as a way to share my creations and keep up with the hobby on my own since I didn't know any other crafters in my new town. 

3. How often do you craft? How would you describe your style? 
I try to craft as often as possible because it helps me to relax and de-stress, and because it is fun for me! My style varies from clean and simple to more layered, but I love using fun colors, patterns, and graphic elements on my cards. 

4. What are your can’t-live-without craft-room essentials?
I love my Tonic guillotine trimmer and Tombow liquid glue, as well as my Versafine Onyx black ink. I would be lost without my box of bling and tweezers for placing rhinestones and enamel dots on my cards!

5.  Where do you get inspiration? How do you stay creative?
I find a lot of inspiration on Pinterest these days by following other card makers or by searching for graphic design posters. 

6.  What is your favorite medium to work with?
I am happiest when I have a patterned paper pad with matching embellishments that all come together just right. 

7.  What’s the one craft skill you would love to master?
Project Life! I have been dabbling in this for a while, and I watch lots of videos online. I would love to organize myself enough to share my own pages online someday.

8.  What is your guilty pleasure?
I am so hooked on singing shows like The Voice and American Idol. 

9.  What makes you smile?
My husband and my dog - I am so lucky!

10. What is your favorite thing to do (other than crafting of course)?
I love cooking, taking walks (especially with my dog), and going to the beach.

11. What do you do to keep yourself, your space and your time organized?
I constantly clean my craft room and sell or donate items that have been unloved to for too long because clutter in my craft space clutters my brain! 

12. Are there any crafters/artists/designers that you particularly look up to?
So many! Should I list them all? Here are a few: Lea Lawson, Debby Hughes, Shari Carroll, Lisa Spangler, and Danielle Flanders. Their blogs & work bring me so much joy, all for different reasons.








Wow, such a feast for the eyes!! They are so cheerful and eye-catching cards... Thank you so much Suzanne for inspiring us today and thank you folks for passing by!!! Happy crafting :)
