August Guest Designer

Wow, summer sure is going by quickly!  Our time with our July guest designer, Andrea Ewen has flown by as well.  We would like to thank Andrea for sharing her amazing talent with us for the past month.

I am very happy to introduce you all to our talented August guest designer....




Here is a little more about Susie in her own words:


Born in California, and raised in both the Northwest United States, and the southwestern desert of Arizona.   I have been married for almost 45 years, have two grown children, and one grandchild.   Having lived and traveled the world over, I have never met a character I didn’t love -- well, maybe just a couple (she smiles).

In 2010 after many years of laying aside my creative interests, I began a blog where using the imagery and medium of paper crafting, writing, and photography, brought my memories to life again in card and story form.   It didn’t take me long to realize this medium gave me great satisfaction.    A people watcher and story teller at heart, I find great joy in finding a stamp with character and surrounding it with words that give it life.   Words that encourage, inspire, bring laughter and imagination to the heart.   Sue Monk Kidd said, “Discovering our personal stories is a spiritual quest.”   I find that to be true.   Many of my blog posts reflect my faith and little pieces of me.   A place to share my spiritual and creative journey ... with you.

We look forward to all the wonderful projects that Susie will have to share with us this coming month.  Welcome Susie!
