We are excited to introduce you to the new members of the
2012 SweetStamps.com Design Team!
There are two creative ladies joining us from Canada:
Eve Tzortzis from Toronto, Ontario
Linda Jover from Windsor, Ontario
Finishing up the team, from the U.S., are these three talented ladies:
Jenn Cochran from Grand Junction, Colorado
I AM - a mother, card maker, scrapbook teacher, a chef, nature lover, a recycler, A COLORADO GIRL, Copic lover, designer paper hoarder, stamp collector, flower keeper, rhinestone organizer! I LOVE crafts and hope you will enjoy seeing my SweetStamps creations as much as I have enjoyed making them!
Calypso Bastian from Oxnard, California
My name is Nazeema Bastian, but I am known as "Calypso" in the blogging community and I live in Southern California.
I am engaged to my best friend and together we have two amazing boys ages 15 y/o and 2 y/o. I am a SAHM and a full time student pursuing my Nursing degree. So when I'm not enthralled within my books, running after a busy 2 year old and/or running back and forth for sports, you can find me in my crafty corner. I have been crafting since 1998, but only started blogging around 2010. I do not have a particular style that I tend to stick to, I just do as I feel and want. I do love to try new techniques and I am always in for a good sketch.
I am honored to have been invited to be a part of the SweetStamps Design Team and I am looking forward to a very creative and exciting 6 months with these talented ladies. I hope that you will visit me: Calypso's Cards and follow my crafting journey with the SweetStamps Design Team.
I know we're all excited to see your creations for next week's challenge!
This week I've asked our returning Senior Design Team Members to put together a "Pick 6" list of their Top 6 favorite items from SweetStamps. I know this was a difficult task because I'm a crafter too and I love ALL my stuff! But their challenge was to list a few things they ALWAYS have in their crafting space that they would feel "lost" without! Below are the photos of each Senior Design Team Member's picks, please click on the DT member's name to go to her blog and find out why these items made her list!
