It is my pleasure to introduce to you our two newest team members... Sara and Shirley-Anne!
Hi, I'm Sara. I'm a 30-something wife, stepmother of five, nana of nine, and great-nana of one. I also have two fur babies of the doggy persuasion and three of the kitty. I was born in Guam when my dad served there with the US Navy, but wound up being raised a third of the world away in a very landlocked Idaho town of 550 people. I'm still in Idaho - the 5th generation of my family to live in this state - but I did finally move to the "city".
The number one thing I hear from my family in response to my crafts is "When did you learn to do THAT?". Despite dabbling over the years with art and crafting, it's only been in the last few years that I've really discovered my creative streak. I adore shabby chic style, though I feel like my own style changes depending on my muse. I love to create and alter a variety of things, but have a soft spot in my heart for my cards because I know how much that little bit of thought, effort, and personalization means to the recipient.
I feel truly fortunate to be joining these amazing ladies on the DT, and look forward to getting to know more crafty people! My personal blog is Folded Paper & Printed Pixels.
Hi there. I'm Shirley-Anne.
I am a full time carer for my husband . Papercrafting and blogging are my rest and recreational tools . I have tried many hobbies from writing short ....yes really, I can do short ...articles for magazines . Card creating has taken over my free time ...as opposed to ironin , dusting and window cleaning; I find the instant gratification soothes my soul.
Having said that my richest pleasure comes from commenting on other papercrafters mini works of art .Kind words ..and one does not need to be patronising ,can encourage, enthuse and inspire the beginner as well as an established artist.
My style is definately CAS . My personal blog is Stamping for Joy.
We welcome these wonderful ladies to our team, and we hope that you will enjoy seeing their creations each week... you'll see their first creations for Card Crafter's Cirle in our very next challenge!
