OUR CRAFTY FRIENDS

Welcome, Sherry and Aimeslee!

Click HERE for our current challenge!

Hi everyone! I've popped in this morning with a couple design team updates. Heather and Kathy, two of our DT members, are stepping down at the end of December. We'd like to thank these ladies for their service to our design team and wish them success in their crafty endeavors. Big hugs from all of us here on the team, and we look forward to seeing them around blogland. :)

On that note, our friend and former teammate, Sherry, is coming back to the Love To Craft Challenge Blog DT and will begin creating with us on January 1st. We are absolutely thrilled that she's coming back! Be sure to check out Sherry's blog - Loose Stitches and Unraveled Threads. We know you're going to love what you see!

So, without further ado, here's Sherry....
Hello, I am Sherry. I'm a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed crafting ever since I can remember, like painting, needlework, scrapbooking, crocheting, drawing and coloring. I have found that I really enjoy creating cards and have recently started working with mixed media. I am so very excited to be a part of the Love To Craft Design Team!

Welcome aboard, Sherry! We're definitely looking forward to crafting with you again!

And now, let me introduce Aimeslee, our other new teammie who will also begin crafting with us on January 1st! Aimeslee is super talented and I can't even describe how excited I was when she said 'yes' to my invitation to join the team! Be sure to check out her blog - Paper Paisleys. We know you'll agree with us that she's got it going on! ;)

And here's Aimeslee...
I'm Aimeslee and I live on the upper Texas gulf coast about 30 minutes east of Houston. My husband and I are the very proud parents of a grown daughter who is getting married in 2 months. We are also owned by a community cat named Carmella who hangs out in our backyard a lot. Honey is an ExxonMobil retiree and I'm a retired tax accountant whose first love was and still is writing. I've been a passionate hobby artist since 2004. I am quite eclectic in my tastes, style and crazy ideas. I began like so many others with scrapbooking, but have since added card making, art journaling, collage and mixed media to my art adventures. I am very excited to join this wonderful team of designers who have inspired me while I've played here at LTCCB. Here's to lots of art play fun in 2020!

Welcome to the team, Aimeslee! So happy to call you teammie, and we're looking forward to crafting with you!

Hugs,
Leslie & the DT
