Meet the Team

Next up is Irit Shalom, here is what she has to say.....

My name is  IRIT and I am from sunny ISRAEL. In my "real life" I am a dentist, but for the last 4 years I do it as a part time job, because I need some extra time  for my scrapping and crafting addiction and I  have a lot of fun doing something else after 25 years of dentistry. I have been married for 28 years to a retired high police officer, who is the full time family cook these days.  I am a mom to 4 grown ups: 2 sons and twin daughters. The empty nest is probably the main reason for my obsession for crafting - finally I have some time for myself.  My oldest son is an  army officer, married and will be a dad in about 8 weeks. The second one is " a world traveler" - for the last 4 years after his army service he is out of Israel for at least 9 months a year- lives and works in Spain. My twins are in their second year of college and my  major scrapbooking inspiration.   I need to say that I have been totally addicted to crafting since I was a little girl. For many years it was a  polymer clay and jewelry making, but after I saw a scrapbook layout for the first time in my life (only 5 years ago during my visit to USA), I  finally understood  that I am in love with paper. Today I mostly scrap and do altered art and less card making.   I have been a  design team member in about 9-10 challenge blogs and was a guest designer on lots of others  during the last year, but now I decided to do some real design work and don't take any challenge blogs DT  spots anymore.  Right now I  am a permanent designer  for UK chipboard company named Tando creative, for an Australian shop named Scrap with V and a staff member on SNR web magazine. I was published in print in Israel several times and was published in every possible web magazine during the last year. Last, but not least- my other addiction is..... folk dancing. So if I am not in my crafting room- I am probably dancing.  I am totally thrilled to be a part of this great DT here and hope to do my best.
