This is a picture of us taken by Kate Holmes last week.
Kate is a PhD researcher writing a thesis on what part technology and social media plays within DIY culture.
She got in touch with us a few weeks ago asking if she could interview us (HELL YEAH).
We had a great time, I mean we LOVE to talk, and talk about ourselves! Speaking to Kate made me realise how much of a role the Internet does play in the making of Sugar paper (even though I love calling myself a technophobe!).
After the interview she asked if we had thought about/ been asked these kind of questions before (IE why we do what we do) Kandy said no, I said yes, as I think A LOT and have been interviewing myself about my various projects from a young age!
But then I paused and said not really, as much as I think about it, we never really get asked, not in depth, it's usually a few stock questions. It was nice. To question yourself, take a step back and think why DO we do this.
It made us leave feeling really glad that we do.
I think it helped that Kate was super nice (she bought us tea, was sporting a Tara McPherson watch and likes Harry Potter AND Lego, WIN WIN for us!) and asked us questions referring to craft and community, which we're passionate about!
