#346 - Anything Goes

Hello Friends!

Barbara here,
Before we announce winners and start the newest challenge, 
it's time to announce the newest designer here at Crafty Creations

Kathy Barnett

Hi my name is Kathy Barnett.
  I am a mother of 2, a son and a daughter in college. 
I have a great hubby of almost 30 years who has put up with all of my hobbies throughout our time together.
Like my Mother, Grandmothers and Great-Grandmothers, I started crafting at a very early age.  Embroidery, ceramics (eventually taught ceramics in my early 20's), cross stitching, crocheting, making porcelain dolls, tole painting, scrapbooking, knitting, weaving and even spinning my own yarn on either a wheel or a drop spindle.  I am fully engaged in making cards and photo albums.  I love the coloring process the most, but I also enjoy building all the elements in the end to create special and unique cards for giving.
When I am not coloring a stamped image, or creating a layout for a card you may see me knitting, spinning or weaving at a loom.

Creating, this is who I am.  Put something in my hands and I am in my own world.
Let's give Kathy some love.


Now lets look at the new challenge 
and the winners from the previous challenge here at Crafty Creations... 
but before I jump to that, I would like to thank each and everyone who has joined us for the last challenge #345- Anything Goes

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was six years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!
