Hello everyone!! Kymona here with some exciting news.  We are announcing our new Design Team Members today.  It was a hard choice.  All of the entries were fabulous and it was so hard to narrow it down but we think we got it right and chose a really great team.

Please join me in welcoming our newest members:

NEW_Bio_Pic02_WIENERKimberly Wiener

Hello!  My name is Kimberly Wiener and I love making cards and other crafty projects! I have been crafting forever, though only started card challenges in 2012. My blog is called Wienerhoneymooners because when I started blogging in 2008 it was to document the days leading up to our wedding since all of my husbands family is from Missouri, while we live in Washington state.  I love this crafting community and enjoy inspiring others to use what they love. I am so excited to join A2Z Scrapbooking and can’t wait to see what you create!

Hi, I’m Angie Cimbalo and so happy to be here!  After 34 years, I retired from public school music teaching 3 years ago and since then, have had much more time for crafting, yay!  I am married to my best friend and we have 4 adult children.  We live in Texas with our sweet senior English Springer Spaniel and we also have 5 beautiful grandchildren in Texas and New Mexico.

My paper crafting addiction actually happened accidentally.  I had stopped by the music store in town, owned by a friend of mine, to pick up used violin strings and other used broken parts of instruments for my jewelry making hobby and the sheet music dealer there told me an elderly gentleman had just dropped off a big box of vintage sheet music and he was going to throw it in the trash!  I told him, “No, I’ll take it!”  I wanted it for crafting so I took it home, got online to get ideas and that’s where I discovered card making and other paper crafting fun!  And I couldn’t believe how helpful, kind and encouraging that the paper crafting community was!

I still make jewelry and other crafts but card making is the one craft I enjoy the most.  It gives me such joy to make and share cards with family and friends!   I’m really looking forward to the future and so happy to be here with the a2z Scrapbooking Design Team!

Hello, I’m Kymona Tracey. Who am I, you ask? I am a women who never slows down and loves it. Yes... I am the energizer bunny's sister! I just keep going and going (which is something that I am working on, if you follow my weekly wishes on my blog). I am a single mother of two wonderful children who are 8 years apart. My 16 year old son is a true self-made jock who plays every sport you can think of ! My 7 year old daughter is a real life princess who loves anything crafty and girly and absolutely hates anything related to sports. Talk about yin and yang! ...but I love it!! Besides running from one activity to another with them, I work full time at a hospital (public health background), facilitate a reading group at work, teach high school students on the weekends and have a huge love of learning new things. I’ve taken classes in photography, web design, knitting, scrapbooking and card-making. I love them all, however, my true passion is card-making. I was introduced to card making back in 2004 and haven’t turned back since. I started out as a hobbyist just making cards for family and friends. People were always ecstatic when they received a card from me. What they did not know was that it made me feel just as special to make a card for them. This passion pushed me into teaching card-making classes at work with a couple of coworkers who wanted to learn how to make projects for their families. In September 2013, I made a big leap and created my blog, Kreative Kymona. Besides being a mom, I think that this has been one of my most rewarding accomplishments. Just being able to share with my world community makes life so rewarding!
