Let's start with the goodbyes! Britta Swiderski has already stepped down. And after our next challenge, we will say goodbye to Melania Deasy and Vera Yates. It has been an absolute pleasure having them on the design team for so long and it goes without saying I will miss them terribly! Ladies, thank you for sharing your talents with us!
Today, allow me to introduce our first designer that will be joining us in October.....
My name is Chrissie and I live in the Chicagoland area with my wonderful husband, son, daughter and crazy dog. I work full-time as Graphic Designer/Pre-Press Operator at a small print company. I have been involved in some aspect of art my entire life. From oil paints and watercolors as a child, to paper crafting and digital art as an adult, rarely a day has gone by in my world that doesn’t include art. I am an Alumnus of the Illinois Institute of Art, where I graduated with Honors and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Visual Communications. I started papercrafting around 1997, but I ended up just hoarding supplies and not completing any projects. A few years ago, my love of papercrafting was rekindled when I was invited to scrapbook at a friend’s house. I have been obsessed ever since!!!
:) See ya next time with the announcement of our second newest design team member!
