A Hero Arts Retailer


Design Team News March 2019

Hello everyone,

As you may have noticed Gwendolyn is stepping down from the a2z DT.  It is always hard to say Goodbye, but that’s part of life; and I believe a Goodbye is not forever.  Thank you Gwendolyn for all your contributions to a2z, and for all the beautiful inspirations you’d shared.  And we wish you all the best in your future endeavors!!

And now, please join me and welcome a new DT member, LeeAnn McKinney.

HI, my name is LeeAnn and I am the paper artist for Mimi’s Crafty Abyss. Mimi what my grandbabies call me, and I started paper crafting when my grandson was on the way (started with decor for the nursery). From that decor I quickly moved into making cards, although I had scrap-booked for a few years when my girls were young, I lost the love for it after mom passed away. Finding out I was going to be a Mimi brought that love back, and it exploded.

If I am home, I am in my craftroom, if I am at work, I am thinking of the projects I am going to work on when I get home. One day a week I can bring my crafty fun to work with me, and really enjoy it.

So glad you could join us LeeAnn.  You could also reach LeeAnn at these social outlets:  facebook,  blog (Mimis Crafty Abyss),  instagram,  twitter,  youtube

Stay tuned, come back tomorrow to see LeeAnn’s first solo post here on a2z.

IMG_8759 - CopyCornelia

Hi, I am originally from Germany. I came to the US 23 years ago – I met my husband in Munich and it was love at first sight, despite my inability at this time to utter even a halfway decent sentence in English. For the last 19 years I have been living in New Jersey with my husband and our two children, although my daughter is grown up and not at home anymore. I am working full time and I am a complete card addict. Ever since I started blogging in at the end of 2012 I am totally hooked and this addiction is not getting any better….. I mainly do CAS cards, but occasionally I like to experiment. Besides card making I enjoy photography, baking, cooking, the outdoors (hiking, biking, skiing), reading, classical and all sorts of ethnic music and going to the movies. I also love to travel!

Just meMonica

My name is Monica and I live in IL with my husband and 3 boys! I work part time at Micheal’s ( and yes I do come with a paycheck left) 😉  I’ve lived in IL since 2003, but was born in TX and still tend to call it home. I grew up a “Military brat” and have been lucky enough to call places like TX, FL, Germany, IN, NC and IL home at some point in my life.  I’ve been crafty most of my life and have always loved to color. I’ve dabbled in painting (canvas, wood and plaster houses, sewing, wreath making, crochet, scrapbooking and card making. card making has become a favorite with scrapbooking a close second! A friend introduced me to Copics at a craft night at her house and they became a quick favorite for coloring, but I like to still sit with my youngest with a good ol’ coloring book and crayons!

Aloha friends!  I’m Niki G. a “forever 29” Registered Nurse by day and crazy papercrafter by night.  All my crafting is done when the kids fall asleep and before the sun comes up.  I have a super supportive husband that usually buys my crafty goodies!  I’m a huge fan of live theater, lazy days (they don’t come that often) and everything colorful!  I’m a jeans and t-shirt kinda gal, but love playing with makeup and occasionally getting dressed up.  I’m ecstatic to be here and look forward to sharing my creations with you all!

I am essentially hooked on card making.  When the mood hits me, I’ll switch it up a bit by making Trading Cards and making trades all over the world.  I’ve given Copic markers a whirl and am still whirling. I grew up loving to color, but had no chance to do much more than the basics until I learned about adding depth.  I could sit for hours and color.  Most of my free time is spent coloring or playing with paper and dies.  Paper is such a fun material.  I like being creative and having fun, especially with my sixteen year old granddaughter, who happens to love the same things I do. We go out for lunch and talk and laugh endlessly.  I work full time and may retire in the near future.
