Inquiring Minds Might Want To Know . . .

I get emails all the time where people say they wish I would share just a little bit more about myself.   My friends laugh when I tell them that, because many that have known me for years know how very private I am.  I’ve come to share a bit here and have learned that it’s very difficult to blog without using the would “I” a cajillion times in a post.   The truth is though, I always feel awkward and embarrassed talking about myself.  Recently I let my hair down and gave in when an online craft magazine persevered in requests for an interview – all I could think was really?  Me?   Then I looked through this digital magazine at some of the other fabulous artists that they interviewed and thought “go ahead and jump in, girl!”

Scrap n’ Art Magazine is published online monthly and has a subscriber base of 15,000 people.  They have graciously extended a 30 day free trial, no strings attached, subscription if you want to take a peek at the interview they published about me as well as the ability to flip through any of their past issues.  Of course there are many fabulous designers featured each month, so it was such a thrill for me to be included!!  So at break time, you might want to get yourself a creamy cup of coffee and sit down and peruse with your free trial.

    Oh Becca, how lovely! I am going to pop right over and read your article. They couldn’t have found a more gifted artist to feature! Now, if only they could figure out a way to transmit your brian activity into my hands. . . .ReplyCancel

  • MaryannJune 2, 2012 - 1:49 am

    Oh no why is is always on Facebook, when there´s something nice??? I would really have loved to read this interview, but as I´m NOT on Facebook, I again again can´t join in the fun. I really don´t understand, when you all use the blog anyway, why all these things is always about going to Facebook, but there is still lots of people, who doesn´t like Facebook, and their lack of security inthere.
    But a biiig Congratulations for being chosen Becca, if anyone deserves it, it´s you, and I would really have loved to read it, so I hope, I´ll get the chance inhere later then?? You are one of the most talented artist I have ever met, that´s for sure, and I absolutely LOVE your work.ReplyCancel

    Becca, I could not find a place for a free trail subscription.
    Went though the regular subscription info and put in your code and it said it was either expired or an invalid code. I could get to where your article was supposed to be, but couldn’t look at it without a paid subscription.ReplyCancel

  • Lisa SackettJune 2, 2012 - 6:34 am

    I just met someone yesterday while working on a class who asked me if I knew you. Funny though, she didn’t ask if I knew of you. I haven’t read the article yet, but plan to. TFS this online mag and article. I look forward to perusing it thoroughly. Btw, you might not realize how “talked about” you are outside of the Internet — I teach at a LSS and am asked often if I know you and/or your work. I hear so often, “I just love Becca — she’s amazing”. And you know what? They’re right! Even without reading your interview I already know that. May God continually bless you!ReplyCancel

  • JessicaJune 2, 2012 - 6:47 am

    Hi Becca, I went and couldn’t find where to sign in the trial membership that didn’t require a password. So I couldn’t get in. Course it’s early in the morning, so maybe my eyes are really open yet! lol I’ll try again later when I’m more awake. Congrats on the interview. And you should be included with all the wonderful artist in our great community. I, and many others, think you are one of the best.
    Thanks for sharing yourself and your talent with us.
    Hugs, JessReplyCancel

  • Jody HammondJune 2, 2012 - 6:50 am

    Great article. You are my favorite designers. I first saw your work on ODB stamps. My friend Roxy is creative like you are, I love your elegant style with cards. I love spellbinders too. I appreciate your willingness to be real. When I am need some inspiration, I always find it here. I love that you use scripture, it is a double blessing, focusing on the Word and seeing it magnified so beautifully. No wonder I am drawn back every day to see beauty in a world that can be tough to live in day by day. Thank you for sharing your life and talents.ReplyCancel

    How wonderful for you Becca! I understand your reticence~ it’s really hard to be ‘public’. I look at people who are and think, ‘nothing bad has happened and it’s really interesting’ but it’s hard to feel so ‘exposed’! I’m working at it though and I’m so glad for you that you’ve taken this step! ~Blessings~ReplyCancel

  • OkienurseJune 2, 2012 - 8:51 am

    Very nice article. Enjoyed the pictures of your work, especially the aqua card. Don’t think I have seen that one before. Amazed at the crown – you have the patience of a saint. My only question is: where in Florida do you live. I am between Daytona Beach and Orlando. So looking forward to the winner of the stamps tomorrow. Bless you!!

  • MamaGJune 2, 2012 - 9:35 am

    Oh, no – not another Facebook requirement! That’s SO disappointing. FB’s privacy is non-existant, and they just hurt a lot of people financially in their rigged IPO. Only the very wealthiest customers of the big banks knew to sell almost immediately, and of course MZ and his partner each made over a billion and a half dollars by selling over a million shares of their stock immediately. The price no has tanked and people feel cheated. Oh, Becca, I hope you will tell people you work with that thousands of us don’t do FB anymore because it just isn’t playing nice with anybody. I love everything you do, but no one can coerce me into having a FB page – EVER. I know it isn’t you, and I so love everything you do, but no prize will ever tempt me if FB is involved.ReplyCancel

    Don’t know what everyone is complaining about. I was able to sign up for the free trial of Scrap n” Art online magazine without clicking on the Facebook page at all! It took me a couple of times to get it to work, but if you tell folks to just follow the simple instructions they will get the free month without ever going on to Facebook. Simply click on the website and you can get there. Just take a bit more time to read ALL of the instructions.
    Again, thanks, Becca for making this possible for us, I am looking forward to tomorrow’s post. Blessings to you…ReplyCancel

    Dear Becca
    Thanks for all your magnificent cards — every time I look they are just so stunning.
    I was not able to do that subsribe thing on the website.
    Maybe after the mag is older you will let those that could not do it

    I wish so many companies didn’t make Facebook part of their contests. I won’t waste my time with Facebook for any company. I find it presumptuous for companies to expect it. And it doesn’t even make sense to “like” a company you’ve never done business with to enter a contest that would give one the opportunity to try them.ReplyCancel

    Congrats on your article. I, too, grew up the same way you did. My mom always made my clothes for me. We would go shopping and I would find a top or something I liked and my mom would always say, “I can make that!” My parents started going to craft shows and I always made things to sell at the craft booth with them. I also hate sitting without doing something. I have always cross-stitched, knitted, scrapbooked, painted, beading, etc. I was the one to take both my boys senior pictures and have done a few friends wedding photos too. I hope to be like you someday and have a blog and be able to design for different companies. You’re my hero and inspiration!ReplyCancel
