Please say 'hello' to our Dt Coordinator, Carisa...
I have been married nearly 11 years to my amazing high school sweetheart and we have 3 beautiful kids together. My passion is coloring & making cards. Put some fresh rubber in one hand and some Copics in the other and I am happy but I am also branching out to mixed media & altered art. I've come across new stamp companies, new techniques, amazing products and love learning as well as sharing something new all the time. I have been blessed and honored to serve on several amazing design teams. I love every single minute and have met some truly amazing and talented crafters in the process. It's one of my favorite parts of this hobby to be able to meet so many unique people and develop friendships around the world. Each time I'm asked to be on a new DT, I'm amazed that they want lil' ol me! Each one has helped me learn, grow and evolve my personal style of designing as well as gain confidence to continue to follow my own personal dreams. It is my hope thru my blog to inspire others to keep learning, growing & creating as well, but most of all just to have FUN while you do it!
I first came across Krista via Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy images - then I started stalking, I mean, following her blog just to see more bits and pieces of her artwork and amazing sense of style. I am so over the moon excited that she has welcomed me onto her debut Saturated Canary team. I think I was the first person to purchase her digi stamps when she opened up as I had been waiting all day for it to go live! *giggle* I love coloring her images and just being able to chat with her almost daily. I just wish we all lived closer together so we could have one bit slumber coloring party together!!!! I'm looking forward to the great challenges we have lined up and seeing the fans create and inspire thru what they love to do - it really shows whenever I see a new card posted on the Saturated Canary Facebook page. It's one of my daily stops just to see what new cards have been posted.
I love that it already feels like one big happy Saturated family. I know that it will just continue as we all get to know each other better along the way.
I should start by saying that the only reason I have this site up and running and in order is because of this girl!! I've loved Carisa's blog for a while...I think I really fell in love with her site after she did a bookmark video tutorial for the Simply Sassy Blog. It was fun to watch...and she seemed so down to earth and sweet. (She is the queen of bookmarks. And hair coloring!!:) Anyways, when I mentioned the release of my digi's, Carisa left an open-ended comment on my blog about being part of my Dt. At that point, I wasn't planning on having a Dt or a challenge blog...But I thought, if she is going to color my artwork, I'll try this!! LOL. I am so glad she is the coordinator. Carissa just knows what to do, people!! Ha. I've written her novel length emails over and over, and she is so gracious and answers all my questions. Takes care of all the planning. It has been a lovely learning experience for me!
Apart from the stamps, I've gotten to be good friends with her...albeit, it is over emails and that sort of thing. I wish I could jump across the US and give her a big ol' hug! Even the hubby knows who she is. When I mention 'Carisa,' he always says that's the one with the purple hair, right? Hey-- any girl who loves fun colored hair is my kindred spirit!!:P So, thank you girly, for all your help and especially for a new friendship!
If you'd like to check Carisa's blog out, pop over to Lady Guinevere's Inky Faeries! Be sure to check out her hair coloring video and her paper bag mini album video! They are really great tutorials!:) I'm sure you will be as impressed as I am by her totally awesome creations!
