INTRODUCING The JANUARY GUEST DESIGNER

INTRODUCING The JANUARY GUEST DESIGNER

Postby alissa » Dec 28th, '14, 8:04 pm

Our Guest Designer is Doris Sander. I'm so happy that Doris could join us this month. I adore her and her style!

1. What is your most creative time?
During the day. Seriously. I am not a morning person nor a night owl. My best time of day is high noon. And usually, I get the urge to create while I'm at work, then when I get home I get sidetracked by housework or something of that nature. Oh the frustrations!

2. Share your current top 5 favorite songs/music groups with us.
Mumford and Sons, Jackson Browne (always), Jack Johnson Children's Radio on Pandora (this station is awesome - and can an entire station count for the last three?)

3. If you were in a Rock N' Roll band, what would your job be?
I would like to say backup singer as I love to sing, but am not exactly an exhibitionist. Unfortunately, the melody is my thing; I have to concentrate really hard to sing harmony. Hmmm. Maybe I would just be a roadie. I do love to travel as long as I don't have to do the driving.

4. Did you ever want to change your name? If so, to what?
My best friend growing up and I always said we would marry men whose last names were at the beginning of the alphabet since we always got lined up at the end (being Watson and Sander, respectively). She has finally done well in that regard by snagging a Carpenter. I am still working on it.

5. If your life was a movie, what actress would play you?
Maybe Jennifer Garner. She always has a radiant smile on, and I would like to be immortalized as a happy person.

6. What's your favorite accessory?
I am not much for accessorizing, so I will say shoes. Flip flops and sandals in the spring and summer, converse and boots in the fall and winter, and mary janes year round.

7. How do you cheer yourself up?
A steady supply of Coca-Cola Classic. I am self-medicated.

8. If you could have a luncheon with any three people, which three people would you choose and why?
I am intrigued by the ability to write well. I would love to dine with some of my favorite authors. Harper Lee, John Steinbeck, Suzanne Collins, Amy Tan, John Irving, J.R.R. Tolkien, Neil Gaimon . . .

9. What food would describe your style?
Tortilla Soup maybe? A little of this, a little of that, a little spicy, a whole lot of goodness.

10. What is “dressed up” for you?
Tights. I always feel like when I'm wearing tights that I'm going the extra fashion mile (especially when I've had to try on three pair to find just the right ones. oyve.).

Welcome, Doris!

Love your answer to #8 - my husband calls me an 'author groupie'. There's nothing I admire more than someone who can write well.
