Welcome Christi

Hello everyone,

Please join me and welcome our newest DT member Christi Conley.  Yay Christi, welcome aboard!!  Here’s a little introduction of her.

================================================================================================

Christi Conley

I am a mom to the Fabulous Feline Five; love to make all kinds of art, read, & sleep. I moved from the East Coast to wonderful Colorado in 2010 with my felines and family.  I enjoy recycling, tag & garage sales, and creating something cool out of nothing.

A few years ago I started my own blog, Art Without Anxiety, and I have been extremely fortunate to make a bunch of great friends, get on some amazing design teams, and get over my fear of sharing my creations.  I truly enjoy blogging and sharing a bit of myself and my art with my readers.  I don’t have a specific style or anything that particularly inspires me; I just go with the flow!  I started rubber stamping and paper crafting in the early 90’s and I was absolutely hooked from day one (so hooked I signed up to be a demonstrator without ever having been to a demo, class, or anything – I found the information online and joined up!)  I can’t draw a crooked line, so rubber stamps became the way I could express myself artistically, plus there is so much you can do with them!  After all these years, I am still amazed when I watch embossing powder melt; the process just fascinates me!  I can get bored with things fairly easily and quickly, but I am never bored when I am playing with my stamps, papers, chipboard, paints, inks, and all the other goodies this hobby has to offer.

I love quotes and one of my very favorite things to do is create wall hangings, as well as mixed media and cards —  well, honestly, I love it all!  In addition to my blog, you can find me on Pinterest and Instagram; I’d love to have you stop by!

============================================================================================

Christi we’re glad to have you on our team, looking forward to a fun creative journey with you!

And to our readers, come back tomorrow and check out Christi’s first solo post.  Have a lovely day!!

Farewell and Hello

Hello everyone,

It is always difficult to say Goodbye.  Today we bid farewell to a few DT members.  Delia, Niki, and Sue are stepping down from the team.  Delia, Niki, Sue, we thank you for your contributions and creativities.  We would miss you a lot!!   Please come back to see us often.

Char is also scaling down her activities with the group, although she won’t be making regular posts, she would be participating in our digi duels.  Thanks Char for doing that for us.

 

Now we would like to welcome Karen, Gwendolyn, and Annie to the team!   Below is a little introduction.  Please look for their first post in the coming days.

Karen Kirkman

Howdy, I’m Karen. I live in Northern California with my husband, son and two sweet dogs Lucy and Aspen. I have lived in California all my life but have seen many other states.

I have always had a crafty side. When I was young I painted plaster, decorated shirts with fabric images and paint, did some macramé, and a few others. I dabbled many years ago with stamps and punches to make cards. I have come a long way since then. I started scrapbooking about 17 years ago which led me to card making somehow which I have been doing for about 8 years. Once in a great while I do some beading. Just like paper crafting I have collected a lot of supplies.

My favorite craft is making cards. There are so many techniques that can be done with cards which is why I love it. We are lucky today to have access to so many talented card makers for discovering new things to try.

I share my cards on my blog kcskards.  You can also find me on Flickr and Instagram 

 

Gwendolyn Goh

Hi I’m Gwendolyn, I’m originally from Singapore but I spent more than half my life living away from home, in places like New Zealand and France, and we are now expatriates in Ulm, Germany, the birthplace of Albert Einstein!

I gave up my job in the aeronautical industry 5 years ago, to follow my hubby to Germany, and now I have tons of free time to spend with our 3 teenage kids, 2 dogs and also try loads of new things. I picked up crafting a a few years ago starting with soy candle making, crochet, abstract acrylic painting… but when I discovered card making 2 years ago, I immediately became hooked on it and now I do it all the time! I’m essentially a one layer card maker who LOVES colouring. I started learning to water-colour 6 months ago and it is now my favourite medium to use, although I love my colour pencils and alcohol markers, which is a recent discovery too.

I love sharing how I create my cards, so do follow me on my blog https://desperatehousewifecraft.com, Instagram @desperatehousewife_craft or on youtube https://www.youtube.com/desperatehousewifecraft and of course here on A2Z Scrapbooking, where I’m thrilled and honoured to be part of this fabulous team & giving back to society through their different charities. I look forward to inspiring you and be inspired in return! “Creating everyday is not taking time from life, it is creating life.” – Me 🙂

 

Annie Collins

Hello Friends, my name is Annie Collins and I have been crafting all my life. I started at 4 years old sewing with my mother. My passion for crafting and sharing continued to grow over the years. I love paper crafting the most – all forms of it. I live in sunny Florida with my fantastic family, husband, 3 children and pets. I can’t wait to share some projects and be inspired by all of you.

You can visit Annie at her blog: Little Wings Creates

Tomorrow is the beginning of a new challenge, come back and catch the details.  Have a great day!!
