Hi, everybody! I’m Emily Keaton, and I am just thrilled to be a Tuesday Throwdown Guest Designer pick for June 2011!!
My love affair with making things started when I was 5 years old. I distinctly remember attempting to make a pair of bedroom slippers for my mom for Christmas using paper and a bar of soap (somehow I got it into my head that wet soap would make good glue. I was wrong.). Ever since, I’ve been attempting to make all kinds of useful things, primarily from fabric and paper, with varying degrees of success. I was first introduced to rubberstamping and the art of cardmaking in 2004, but my paper creativity really got a boost when I first discovered the stamping community of Splitcoaststampers in 2009. My blog, My Little Slice of Bliss, followed in July 2010. I currently serve on the design teams for Mark’s Finest Papers and the Stampin’ B’s challenge blog.
Basically, I'm a simple gal. When I started off down the road on my extended papercrafting journey, I made a conscious decision to avoid investing in expensive tools and equipment. There just isn't money in our budget or space in our house for extras like these. So, no dies, embossing folders, die cutting machines, or Copics for me. You won’t see expensive embellishments on my projects and you’ll rarely see the latest papers. I do have some punches and rely on colored pencils or watercolor painting for coloring images, but otherwise I look for creative design solutions, make do with what I've got, or do without. I like raiding my sewing supplies (some of which are vintage supplies I inherited from my grandmother’s sewing basket) for embellishments, upcycling “stuff” that drifts into my life, and keeping my eyes open for dollar store bargains that I can use on paper projects.
I share my papercrafting space with my best friend and husband of 17 years and our two children, ages 12 and 8. The highlight of our days is eating supper together every night, giving us a chance to catch up on our days and talk about how the world works. We enjoy having family movie nights, playing board and card games, geocaching, and camping (in the summer). I have a degree in mathematics and work as a freelance writer and editor for college math textbooks and ancillaries. I love the freedom and flexibility that working “for myself” gives me to manage our family life and maintain my sanity with creative pursuits.

Robyn's Fetish has generously provided all digi stamps for the DT to use.  Check out the DT's blog for more details.
