I’ve been crafting for as long as I can remember. Sitting on my grandmother’s lap and watching her sew, inspired me and began a wonderment that pretty things could be created with my own two hands. Papercrafting is my passion. I began with scrapbooking that led to card making, mixed media and a special love for coloring doodle art. I’ve been inspired by so many over the years and love to pass on what I’ve learned to others.
Hi! My name is Kathy and I’m addicted to paper…and stamps and dies and ink and all the exciting things in the great big wonderful world of crafting. I am just thrilled to pieces to be part of Tammy’s creative team! I live in beautiful North Carolina with Dale, my darling husband of 40+ years. Together we raised 5 lively and fun-loving children: 3 boys and two girls. They are all living their adult lives now, and have blessed us with three gorgeous grand girls that we affectionately call “The Littles.”
On most days, you can find me getting inky, and playing with paper and scissors. Or I might be in the kitchen whipping up something yummy to eat, or hanging out with the Littles. My life is rich and full and I feel truly blessed each and every day. I can’t wait to get to know all of you better, and share Tammy’s wonderful designs with you all.
I have been crafting in one way or another since I was in my early 20’s, starting with needle arts, crewel, cross-stitch, and quilting for many years. In 2004, I discovered stamping and paper crafts, and transferred the fun of mixing colors and patterns in cloth to doing the same thing with paper. I love especially to work with floral images.
My blog, Sending Hugs, was started in 2009. I have been on several design teams and have been published in a few magazines.
My husband and I have been married for 45 years; we have 2 sons and 3 delightful grandchildren, who all now live across the country. I am so thankful for this craft that allows me to be in touch with people all over the world.
I’m thrilled to be a charter member of Tammy’s Design Team, and look forward to showcasing her beautiful designs!
Hi! I’m Mindy. I live in Southern California with my hubby, 3 kiddos and 2 dogs. I abso-friggen-lutely LOVE to color and share my passion for these amazing markers. I can’t even explain how much I love to teach fellow crafters how to use Copics. Another passion of mine is learning how to grow my blog by sharing what I love. Coloring and Copics! – My Creative Scoop.
I’ve been a maker all my life… sewing, quilting, painting, stained glass, jewelry… when I found myself with paper & scissors in hand it just felt right. Mixed media is my true love- it incorporates layer upon lovely, textured layer and never fails to surprise. When I’m not busy crafting, I like to check out thrift stores for vintage goodies, decorate my home and read cookbooks! I live in Northern California with my husband. We’re empty nesters right now while our daughter is away at college, so our Tortie cat Holly and a Yellow-Nape parrot named Bosco help fill the void.
