Challenge Title: Welcome the New Year any way you like!
Hostess: Joyce (Ashjoy)
Clean and Simple Challenge
Hello Crafty Friends! So many exciting things to share with you this week as we not only welcome the new year, but also welcome three new members to our CAS team! Woohoo! What a fun and exciting way to start the new year!
First let me make the formal introductions to the beautiful friends that will be sharing their talents with us. I've asked each of them to tell us a little about themselves and this is what they said....
First up is the Paula (MrsLaird).
Hi, I知 Paula, coffee-drinking mom of three. When I知 not stepping on legos, going to pretend birthday parties, or learning all about the different types of Pokemon, I知 crafting. Or thinking about crafting while I知 cleaning. Or drinking coffee, thinking about how I should be cleaning, but I really want to craft and maybe I値l do one or the other after I finish this cup. I have Crafty ADD and want to learn all the crafts! I also love British tv, all manner of sci-fi and geekery, and Disney. And my husband. He痴 pretty awesome. CAS is my favorite stamping style and I知 so excited to be joining the team.
Next up is Misti (Scraperwannabe)
Hi, my name is Misti. I'm married to an amazing man & mom to 2 boys. Both boys are competitive archers with Olympic dreams. We homeschool & travel all over the place for archery events. Stamping keeps me sane...well, helps anyway!!!! LOL I'm thrilled to be a part of the CAS team!
And our next member Kathy (KathleenCurry)
I'm so excited to be joining the CAS team for the next 6 months. I love to make cards and while I like lots of layers, a clean uncluttered layout is always my favorite.
I currently live in NJ (but I'm not a Jersey Girl). I grew up in Delaware. I've been married for close to 13 years, met my husband at my best friend's wedding and we've been together ever since. We have four kids between 5 and 11. They keep us hopping with all their activities. Never a dull moment around here!
Stamping and paper crafting give me a nice way to unwind after the kiddos go to bed. I love to grab some red wine and dark chocolate and head into my craft room.
In my spare time (when that happens) I love to cook and try new recipes. My guilty pleasure is reality TV, I can get hooked on any and all of it. My favorites are American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance and Chopped.
So looking forward to seeing and being inspired by everyone's CAS creations!
