Reader of the Week: Jeanette Waters

Before I introduce my Reader of the Week, I want to thank you for the many positive comments I am hearing about this regular feature.  Each week I learn something new from the interviews.  Take this week, for example.  I never heard of liquid chalks or glimmer chalks so I Googled them and attached links for those of you who never heard of them either.

As a recap for new readers, my Readers of the Week are randomly selected from a comment left throughout the week.  It’s a way for me to get to know you a little better, and it’s a way for you to have your day in the spotlight.

I would like to introduce my Reader of the Week, Janette Waters, of H2O Creations.

As you can see, Jeanette loves to layer her cards.  Who doesn’t love layers these days!

Jeanette started out sewing before she got into rubberstamping.  She likes the look of cards that use sewing, and hopes to start sewing on her own cards one day.

Jeanette was introduced to stamping when a girlfriend invited her to a stamping party, and added “the rest is history.”

I was surprised to learn that Jeanette has been blogging four years.  That is a long time, as blogs just became a huge thing about 3 years ago, and statistically, most quit blogging after two years.  What started out as a diary of her RV roadtrips to keep her family updated, turned to a rubberstamping blog.

As stated earlier, Jeanette is a lover of layers.  She starts with the basic layout of the card and adds to the card from there.  Liquid chalk inks and glimmer chalks are her favourite products.  She loves to use chalks in her backgrounds because they leave such a beautiful soft look.

Curious about liquid chalks?  Ziggy Art has a wonderful description.  Nex Tag is just one place where you can purchase this product.

Curious about glimmer chalks?  Simon Says Stamp gives a description along with the opportunity to purchase this item on-line.

I am always curious as to how long other stampers spend in their studio, and much to my surprise I learned Jeanette spends a long five to six hours there each day.  She spends her time on the computer and creating cards.

Design team work includes:

CowTown Stamps

DogGone Stamps

Just My Sketches

My Sketch World

My Grafico

Squigglefly

When she isn’t in the studio you can find her in her gardens.

Asked to describe her life, Jeanette was happy to say she is very fortunate and lives a very happy life.

As the fairy tale says, “and they all lived happily ever after.”  It sounds like Jeanette is indeed living her dream.

Love this spot Beth. I always like to read about others experiences and your way is a lovely non-intrusive way of showcasing the star in us all.
