Meet the team, introducing Kat Newman from BeadsbyKat

Meet the team at Craft Pimp, introducing Kat from BeadsbyKat.
We set Kat some very important questions to answer the ones you absolutely need to know, what did you have for breakfast week last Tuesday? do you like ketchup or mustard on your toast with beans?
So with no further ado, lets ask those questions...
Skull bracelet available in Kat's Etsy shop.
If you could be a muppet which one would you be and why?

 The Swedish chef - I love his devil may care attitude to his craft ;D
What is your worse quality?

 I have a tumbleweed inducing sense of humour at times - or is it my lack of self confidence? Lol.
Cheese and pickle sandwich or cheese and tomato with salad cream?

 Oh cheese and onion for me please! ;-)
Handmade murrini by Kat
What song best describes you?

 (burn baby burn) Disco Inferno :D
How weird are you on a scale of 1-10?

 Well that just depends on your definition of weird. 'Normal' is so overrated and quite frankly is subject to interpretation!
When will pigs fly?

 Who says they don't?!
If you were a brick in the wall, which brick would you be and why?

 The slightly battered off-colour one with graffiti on.
Write your own eulogy.

 A loyal friend, a kind heart but with sharp claws.
How would you get an elephant into the freezer?

 I'd bribe him with peanut icecream
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

 Life is full of surprises, who knows! Still melting glass though, that's for sure.

You can find Kat around the web, just follow the links and you can see more of her lovely colourful beads and jewellery.
Find Kat on her blog and read all her glassy adventures
Also find Kat on Facebook

Meet the team - Victoria from Cornish Dragon

Today we meet Victoria of Cornish Dragon an artist with a talent for glass and for textiles.  Victoria makes the most amazing textile art dolls, have a look at these witches just perfect for Halloween.

We asked Victoria a few questions, those ones that are pertinent in the matter of getting to know a fellow artistan and crafter.
If you could be a muppet which one would you be and why?
Animal as he is so wild or Miss Piggy as she has such a great attitude.

What is your worse quality?
Holding back a bit and sometimes being a bit too nice.

Cheese and pickle sandwich or cheese and tomato with salad cream?

I would rather have Cheese with strong onion on white crusty bread with a builders tea, but If I have to choose it would be cheese and tom.>

What song best describes you?

Song can it be songs :D Well Underdog by Imagine Dragons or Red Solo Cup by Toby Keith Infact I will go with Red Solo Cup I dare everyone to have a look on You Tube as I bet you will be singing it all day. (Preview)

Depends if I'm being my quiet holding back self then about a 0 but if I let out the nutty side then about 10.

When will pigs fly?
Well me and Igor are trying to perfect their wings at the moment we have tried the strap on wings but the pigs slipped out. I think we are going for the genetic splicing angle though I am worried that Igor seems to have got his saw and sewing stuff out.

If you were a brick in the wall, which brick would you be and why?

The one ad the bottom supporting all the others and helping them up to the top.

If you could write your own eulogy what would it say?

She enriched our lives with flying pigs and Elephants. But was cruelly taken by the elephant poo dropping from the sky.

How would you get an elephant into the freezer?
Build a huge elephant freezer, infact Igor will be starting that when I have wrestled the saw and sewing kit away from him.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Busy still creating and keeping Igor busy. 

If you need to see more of Vic's work, you can find her on the internet at her own website, on Etsy, Facebook and Flickr, just follow the links below you will not be disappointed.
