I'm a big fan of ...

1. Tim Holtz -- he considers the end user and incorporates a variety of uses into each of his tools.

2. Henry Ford -- he figured out a way to save money and went for it -- without sacrificing his employees.

3. J. Robert Crouse -- a friend of Henry Ford, he made Americans need electricity and created a society based on cooperation.

Sweet! Thank you!


* Jim Henson. love EVERYTHING the man did, he was a genius.
* Monty Python. you see their fingerprints everywhere, and you probably never knew it!
* scrapbookers and cardmakers. i could get more specific but i’d hate to leave anyone out! i have a lot of favorites
* Hunter S. Thompson. he was a drug-crazed weirdo but he has definitely said some pretty profound things and had a hell of a life. i respect him for who he dared to be and the experiences he shared in his writing.
* Shel Silverstein. no one has a bigger place in my heart – i’ve loved him since i was in kindergarten, and own almost every single one of his books – including his few “adult” themed pieces
* Hayao Miyazaki. love ALL his films. even Princess Mononoke and Nausicaa: Valley of the Wind, which i do not like so much. his stories and animation are absolutely beautiful, i love all the imagery he uses and the realism he brings to simple anime characters.
* J. R. R. Tolkien. i mean, really. this guy… lived almost his ENTIRE life making up an ENTIRE other universe in his head – languages, geography, creatures, history. his books are amazing, truly one of the best series ever written in my humble opinion
* music in general. this could be a long list as well so i will just leave it at that. music definitely piques my creative side!
* Johnny Depp. my favorite actor of all time, ever. probably one of the single most creative actors as well – he definitely knows his roles!


Creative people I am crazy about:
1. Walt Disney who created a magical world from his vision
2. Names unknown...all the "inventors" who design he tools for us to scrapbook. Paper trimmer to reduce the massive amount of cutting made a huge difference for me...I had to give up scrapbooking due to arthritis a few decades ago but then tools started be invented and I am able to create again.
3. The talented designers who inspire us all to create beautiful pages...including Tami who really helped me find a way to use my thousands and thousands of pictures!
