Drum roll please. It is time to introduce the team! An amazing group who I still cannot quite believe chose to join the challenge.
Art Angel - I’ve been crafting in one way or another since the world began lol. With four wonderfully autistic / dyspraxic / adhd / dyslexic adult kids crafting is everything from a passion to a coping mechanism and all the bits in between. I specialise in ‘anything goes’ and if that involves making a mess then all the better! There’s nothing I won’t try and if anything doesn’t go quiet to plan, we call It added texture haha Art Angel is our Queen of Instagram and will share all our challenges there.
Brenda - I've crafted in some form or another since a child and found papercrafting about 20 years ago when I had to give up ‘real’ work due to MS. I’m very much a country girl living in the Cambridgeshire Fens, with a large family of children, grandchildren, horses, dogs, hens and all the normal suspects. I’m primarily a stamper with an incling towards Flowers, Nature and Fairies usually with an inky grundgy edge, I'm most certainly not a colourist and never do cute.
Christi Conley - A Cat loving Dog loving girl with a mind of her own and a creative soul. Christi is known both sides of the pond for all her work on several design teams over the years. Christi was also one of the founder members of Challenges for Days and ran the group when I left. You can also find her on Instagram Unfortunately Christi fell ill just as we got started, she will join us as soon as she is better but was unable to write a bio in time for the introductions.
Erika Weight - This is a real life selfie. Freezing at my sons track me and drinking a Dr Pepper.
Louise Chamberlain - I'm an eclectic crafter, will give most things a go... I'm not good with numbers, discalctic, so lace making wasn't fun! Criss stitch a challenge. I'm a bit free range or off piste with my ideas. I draw, paint, sew, embroider, crochet, papercraft is my latest obsession, but whatever takes my mood.
Rocky - Growing up in a creative family means I'll try almost anything at least once, from cutting a goose egg with a hacksaw to crocheting a dragon. Craft has always been a huge part of my life and I can't see that changing anytime soon.
Wendy Townsend - People know me as Spanish Crafter in blog land as I have lived here for over 10 years. I have always crafted, knitting, a little sewing when my boys were little. Eventually moved onto card making nearly 20 years ago. I love Groovi (parchment) too. Over the last few years I have got into Junk Journals and took the plunge a few months ago to start a You Tube channel and an Etsy shop in the hope that I may sell a few. It all keeps me busy.
Zoe Sanderson - Team
Twit Leader; a life long crafter who enjoys getting inky and messy. Styles vary from CAS to slap it all on the more the better. When not getting inky I also likes to make jewellery especially chainmaille so look out for some of those pieces. I'll be looking after our Twitter Account as well.
I hope you will agree we are a pretty eclectic group representing many different styles and techniques. One thing we all agree on is that we are excited about this new venture and looking forward to seeing you projects. Our hashtag if you are using Instagram or Twitter is #riverofcreativity. Thank you.
