So I had this idea.
Let do a Design Team.
Won't that be fun?
We'll find crafty people who can make lots of pretty things with the stuff we sell at The Inspiration Station.
Well it was a lot harder than I thought. There are a lot of talented people out there!
I have to work within a budget, so I decided I needed to narrow it down to only 3 people.
I was looking for diversity. I have a my own certain style which tends to be fairly simple, and linear; but I wanted people who would show a different perspective. I think I found a good mix. So here they are.
First up - Sarah Swann of New Mexico
Sarah is a traditional scrapbooker who also works with pocket scrapbooking and card making. She has a large following on her You Tube channel and that is something I have not gotten into so I think she will make an excellent addition to our creative team.
Next is Donna Coughlin of Pennsylvania
Donna is a 13 year scrapbooker who is both a mother and grandmother and loves to travel and is a Disney fan. She has some design team experience and keeps her blog updated with her creativity.
She is new to You Tube but hopefully we will get to see more of her work shown there.
And finally, Patty Hair of Connecticut
Patty is a personal friend of mine who has incredible talent. She is amazing with mini albums and altered art pieces. While her mini albums tend to be very traditional her altered art is something else all together. You may see cute and whimsical "tear" critters or crazy, Steampunk and Gothic inspired projects - you just never know. Take a look at her You Tube Channel and see what I mean.
This week I mailed out packages to each of the ladies. For the first month, I chose items that I though would work well with their personal style. You will begin to see their creations, in the coming weeks. I will link to the posts as soon as I have them. Meantime, visit their sites and leave them some love to welcome them to our team.
