Our very first Happy Hour featured artist is Alicia of LaAlicia.etsy.com. I met Alicia at the EstyDallas Beer B Que early this year. I was lucky enough to have a booth next to hers and get to see all her wonderful work up close. Alicia was nice enough to be my first artist/ interview. She is also the geniuos behind my blog name.
> How long have you been crafting?
As long as I can remember. Even as a child, I loved to fold paper,
making things and playing in my grandma's button box.
> What inspires your art?
Giving something a new purpose or a second life makes me happy. Seeing
the possibilities in raw materials is always inspiring.
> What are your favorite methods/ materials to use in your artwork?
I absolutely love buttons, paper, and cigar boxes. My fave method is
to learn new techniques from other artists.
> What sets you apart from other artist?
I have a tendency to see creative uses for everyday things and love to
throw a new twist on a common technique.
Today's drink recipe is one of my favorites, Strawberry Margarita.
