Guest On Spotlight: Tracy Jackson of Southern Girls Challenge Blog

Hi, everyone!

I'm introducing a Cardmaker and Card Designer on Creo by Lady Katutz' Guests On Spotlight.

My very 3rd Guest on Spotlight is my former Boss, a co-Administrator at SGC, none other than our well-loved Tracy of Southern Girls Challenge (SGC) Blog.  She works together with co-Administrator Louise (Lou) Forsythe.

I've worked both with Tracy and Lou for 1 year from September 6, 2012 to September 5, 2013.  I worked mainly as their Design Team Member for paper traditional scrapbook layouts. From producing or creating scrapbook layouts to scrapbook LOs for Southern Girls, it was a fun design team member stint for me to be with them.

I would never forget working with a few of Southern Girls' sponsors when I could accommodate digital images on my scrapbook layouts.  Tracy is the Sponsor Coordinator of Southern Girls Challenge Blog.  I went non-traditional, not just consuming normal scrapbook embellishments but I poured on my frustrations in baking - in my makings of becoming supposedly a Pastry Chef.  So, baking supplies made their way to my Design Team Scrapbook projects together with the sponsored digital images for Southern Girls Challenge Blog with Lou and Tracy.  

They're a very happy bunch of Aussies and New Zealanders to work with.

Below are the prepared questions and her corresponding answers to each:  
I hope you get to know her thru this post of mine about her.

9 Short Questions and 1 Wrap-It Question:

1.  I would like to know your complete / full name and what you do.
Tracy Jackson

2.  How did you get started in your craft?

Have always been crafty, but got introduced to card making/scrapbooking by a friend about 10 years ago 

3.  Where there previous or other arts and crafts that you delved with or are currently enjoying?

I try my hand at anything crafty from needlework, knitting, creating big paintings for the garden, and have recently discovered a new love - art journaling

4.  Do you have hidden crafts that you like and enjoy by yourself?

Only my paintings. Love to have crafty afternoons with friends.

5.  Amongst your crafts, which one did struck gold and became your main stint?  How did it help you?

Would have to be card making and my love copics. This opened a whole new world to me being on design teams, and just recently joined Lacy Sunshine as a specialist Colourist.

6.  How many years have you been dealing with your craft?  Or with each of your crafts?

Quite a few years now, I find it a great stress releiver after a busy day at work, and like to swap my crafts around depending on what mood Im in and what time I have.

7.  What is your main motivation or inspiration for indulging with your craft?

For me it is all about having "me time" and I love it when my youngest joins me and creates also.

8.  Five years before, where were you in your craft?  Five years from now, what do you envision for your craft?

Nothing has changed from 5 years ago and I suspect next 5 years will be the same... trying to keep up with all the new and wonderful product out there!!!!

9.  What are your major breakthroughs and milestones in relation to your craft or in the industry you are with?

Definatley when I got asked to be on a manufacturing "world team" for Marianne Design. This quiet girl from little New Zealand on a big well known manufactures design team!!! WOW

10.  Describe yourself and your craft in one short phrase, word or sentence.

I have always been artistic and willing to give anything a go. Creativity for me is like food for the soul.
