We are happy to introduce you to our last but certainly not least Guest Designer Dawn
I’m 55… a wife(37yrs), mother (of 5), grandmother (of 9) living in rural Ohio amongst corn, soybean and wheat fields. I have 3 dogs, a couple barn cats and 14 llamas. I have a llama 4H club and we show in competition, go to nursing homes (yes, we take the llamas in!) and generally have fun!
I was first introduced to paper crafting (as probably so many are) at an SU workshop. I only went because my daughter had booked a party “to be nice” from a friend. HA! What would I do with stamps? But, it was MY daughter, so I HAD to go! What can I say….. I WAS HOOKED!
I’ve always enjoyed crafting in various mediums (since I have the llamas, I spin their fiber into yarn for knitting/crocheting just for one example!), but stamping was different…not only do I really enjoy creating cards and altered items, but the joy of sending a card with just the right sentiment…sometimes “just because”, to a person at the RIGHT time and giving them encouragement or just making them smile and feel “special” is so rewarding!
I do freelance work, have served on many design teams, and have quite a few magazine publications under my belt. So far the highlight was being asked to help illustrate a coloring techniques book by Annie’s Attic! I do love to color. Thanks to Terry and Creative Cuts and More for asking me to be a Guest Designer this month!

Dawn, thank you so much for joining us this month! It was a pleasure to have you and we can't wait for you to come back!
