Feature Me Monday w/ a SURPRISE GIVEAWAY!!!!

This week's feature post is on my good friend Tiffany. We met though Happy Mail, she was my January HM partner. We have become great pen pals and great friends ever since. She takes some of the most gorgeous pictures. I want to thank Tiffany, for being so amazing, she has the most inspiring story and so much strength. Your awesome Tiff and SOO talented. I am so happy we are friends.

1. What is your name, tell us a little bit about yourself, and what you do.

My name is Tiffany Burns Rushforth ~ I am 35 and I live in Salt Lake City with my husband and our 3 dogs and 1 cat~ I work as an Office Manager at an Auto Body shop and I love it! :) I am also a photographer~

2. Where can we find you?
My Blog
Photography by Me
Photography Blog
3. What’s your obsession right now?

Reading, Knitting, and my brain is super ready for Spring which makes me want to start planting stuff in pots on my front porch :)

4. Where do you get your inspiration and what keeps you motivated?

My inspiration comes mainly from my mom! She died in August 2009 and suddenly my life was turned upside down. It was how she lived her life that makes me want to live mine even more and even better than before. She was such an incredible artist~ she is my inspiration!

I do read a lot of blogs and find so much inspiration in such a supportive artist community of bloggers! :)

5. Where are your favorite places to shop online?

Recently discovered (I was a little behind the times there) :) and also Those are my current favorites and also anywhere that I can find books!

6. If you could only use one craft object for the rest of your life what would it be?

That is so hard~ I have always loved photography but since I started doing it as a business I think I lost the artistic drive for doing things I love so I think I would do photography ~ With FILM!!! That is one of my favorite things ever! Oh and knitting because that is my current obsession! :)

I just wanted to say Thank you to all of my new friends in the blogging community~ I cannot tell you enough how much you help me get through each day! Everyone has been so positive and supportive and it means the world to me!
I love being able to create and share things and see what everyone else is doing!
Happy mail has been another thing that makes me happy! :) Snail mail is still the best! I love giving and receiving mail ~ it rocks!!
