New Team members and sad goodbyes

Sadly we are saying goodbye to three of our team members this next week.  Irit Shalom on Sunday, Tanisha Long on Monday and Liz Chidester on Thursday.  Please stop by to wish them well and thank them for their fabulous creations for Cheery Lynn Designs over the last 10 months.  They have inspired and delighted us with their creativity.

The following week will start our new team, Jeannie, Kianel and myself will be joined by Donna, Jodi, Marley and Sandie.  I would like to introduce the new members to you today.

Donna Smith  "I've been crafting for 4½ years, I started off scrapbooking, using my dog as my subject and then moved onto cardmaking and  decoupage as most people do, and eventually got into stamping. I am quite the collector of rubber stamps, papers, dies, punches ....basically anything craft related. I also design papers for crafting, and have been doing that for 4½ years as well. My style of cardmaking is similar to scrapbooking, in that I love to fill the front with lots to look at, as in flowers, ribbon, embellishments,  you name it, I love to stick it on the front of my card. I don't do clean and simple very well, as the card looks bare to me. I've been using Cheery Lynn dies since I first discovered them in the spring, and I love all the intricate details that are on the dies, and I love adding one or more to my cards. I'm originally from Canada and moved to England back in the summer of 1999.......and I still miss the hot summers of Saskatchewan. I'm married to a wonderful understanding man, who lets me indulge in this expensive hobby of mine, and will often come up with ideas for me, and if it requires measuring weird angles, etc........he's the one to help me out. We have four wonderful grandchildren and a super intelligent Jack Russell named Kody."

Jodi Baune  "I am a dedicated, fun-loving country girl with two boys ages18 and 22, and an amazing husband.  I am very blessed that they are extremely supportive of my hobby.  I am the shy,
quiet type...most of the time :) I am a weird mix of girly girl and tom boy. Pedicures are awesome, but I'm not afraid to dip my pretty toes in a puddle or two! Pretty much, I am just the girl next door. During the day  I tend to seven precious small children by operating a daycare business in my home.  Some of my other interests include gardening, reading, and browsing through antique shops for inspiration.I love vintage!

 Sandie Louise  "What a wonderful opportunity to be working with Cheery Lynn Designs on their Design Team!  My name is Sandie and I live in one of Australia’s many mining districts – in Geraldton, Western Australia.   I’m a Criminologist (with an artistic flair), though currently a stay at home Mother to our son Jesse, aged 17 months.   My partner John works in the Mining industry, so we tend to have the opportunity to move around, and see new parts of Australia from time to time.  I originate from an extremely artistic family, and for as long as I can remember I have dabbled creatively in a wide variety of crafts. My paper-craft journey begun over a decade ago, however I only briefly dabbled up until the birth of my son.  The last 9 months has seen my love of ‘paper’ grow to the extent my ‘hobby’ has over-taken the house, and our Burmese cat has developed a major paper fetish!  Recently, I have found myself wanting to stretch the imagination, create something different, and push boundaries by stepping out of my comfort zone, via any means possible.  I enjoy “all” forms of paper-craft and my preferred style would lean more towards vintage/romantic/shabby chic, though not always."
