YOWZA! It's the Sunday Featured Artist...Mr. WhiMSy love!

I do realize it's late on a Sunday afternoon, but I thought I'd get back into this whole "YOWZA!" feature. And I've decided that on Sundays I'll have either a featured artist OR "YOWZA! It's the Sunday Featured Favorites!", which will be a selection of my current favorite things. (Yes, this new addition is an excuse for the days when I'm too forgetful at recruiting cool artists each week!)

But now, let's get to the good stuff- this Sunday's featured artist!! It's my hubby!! Mr. WhiMSy love (thanks Laura for the name!) & I spent some quality time a couple nights ago hanging out &......making shrinky dinks!! Are you jealous?? It was the coolest thing EVERS!

And, he surprised me with his cupcake art. I mean, how sexy are those crafty man-hands? I know, I'm a cornball. The cupcake just tops it all, ya know? We had a blast! I highly recommend a romantic night of shrinky dink fun to anyone! I made his cupcake into a charm & I told him he should totally make one for both of our girls as Christmas presents.

So, yeah, Mr. WhiMSy love is the featured artist today. He has really gotten into my crafty world recently & I love it! And, of course I had to interview this week's featured artist....
-Where were you born, where are you from, where did you grow up, & where are you living now?
I was born in Phoenix & grew up in Phoenix & Scottsdale. I live in Washington now.
-When did you realize there was a bit of craftiness in you?
When I was 5 years old & I got in trouble for drawing on my 1 year old brother's head with markers.
-What's your favorite color?
Blue & green & white.
-What do you like to do for fun?
Hang out with Mrs. WhiMSy love, the kidgits (his word, not mine), & work out at the gym.
-How much can you bench press?
355 pounds
-So, what's your take on this whole "cupcake" thing?
The frosting's always good. The crumbs suck.
-Do you ever get jealous of Mrs. WhiMSy love's passion for all things crafty?
Only when her shrinky dinks turn out better than mine.
-What's your favorite hot yummy drink?
Apple cider
-Where do you get your inspiration from?
Spending time with Nikki. By being involved in crafts, it means I get extra time with Nikki.
-What's your favorite item in WhiMSy love?
The forks. (Some of you might just have a fork easel or two that have been "man-handled", as Mr. WhiMSy love has been helping out a bit!)
-Is there anything else you want to add?
One day people might buy my shrinky dinks too.
Thanks Scott! I look forward to seeing your crafty projects in the future!
