I'm currently living in the historical city of Kingston, Ontario in Canada. I was living in the NYC/NJ area before I got married almost two years ago and moved to where I am now residing.
How long have you been a Silhouette user?
I have been a Silhouette user for about four years now. My first machine was a Silhouette Portrait® my now-husband bought me for my birthday.

I find myself using heat transfer material the most, but I love crafting with leather, shrink plastic and wood veneer on days I need to de-stress.
Where do you find your inspiration?
I look for inspiration in current trends, Instagram and whatever I find interesting!
Which Silhouette product do you like or use the most?
I currently love the Silhouette Mint™ as I’ve been cranking out a lot of custom stamps lately and it’s very handy!
