Let me introduce them to you! 

Hello Everyone! My name is Chitra. I live in Michigan, United States.  I am into card-making world over a year now and I've come across new stamp companies, new techniques, new blogs, amazing products over the year. My passion is for coloring, Put some stamps in one hand and some coloring medium in the other and I am a happy go lucky girl. Also I love cooking, chocolate, tea and anything crafty. I am new to the blogging world, I started blogging in September in order to join some awesome challenges and I became totally hooked. I am awestruck of all the wonderful blogs that I see and I hope that one day my blog will be up to that level and it is my hope thru my blog to inspire others and to keep learning, growing & creating. 

Hi.  My name is Deanne Clarke-Saunders.  My hubby and I live in beautiful Newfoundland, Canada.  I'm currently not working but I'm an elementary teacher.  I've always LOVED crafting and creating.  Right from childhood I loved crayons, pencils, paper scissors and glue.  I always had fun when I played with those materials.  So, I decided to continue that fun and scrapbook and make cards!  I love being creative and enjoy using my imagination!
I'm a housewife with two lovely kids. I live in Bandung, city that is called Parijs van Java, Indonesia.  My hobby is crafting, especially card making and bentoing, that is decorating food in my kid's lunchbox as Japanese mommies do.

I'm Jill, I live at beautiful island of Indonesia, Bali. I live with my husband and our lovely dog...Wolfie. We've lived here almost 8 years. I'm totally work at home. I love to do crafting since at Junior High School until know. It's more easy now to do because now there is many things to make it dies, stamps, etc. I'm so enjoyed the time when I crafting.

Hello fellow scrappers!! I’m Marianna Falaggi ~ Marion for friends~  I’m 31 years old and I’m from Greece! I’m married to a great man called Kostas for 3 years now but we are together almost 13!! Yikes!!  We don’t have children yet but we do have a dog ~ Rudy~ and some cats. I’m a graphic designer and I have my own line for wedding and baptism invitation here in Greece.  I started scrap booking and card making 11 years ago and the last year I started creating my own designs and I have a small business ~ COLORink Digital Stamps ~ selling cut files, digital stamps, sentiments and patterned papers as the need to support my family and my hobby is bigger than ever.  I work for Scrapping Memories and Tracy Wray. I really love card making and I love creating cute designs for every occasion!!  Here it’s quite difficult to find stuff for card making and scrap booking, as paper crafts is not so widespread; so I always try to make my own patterned paper and cut designs with my beloved craft robo.

My name is Nadja Robbins and I am first a wife and mother. After all that I am an avid card maker that enjoys trying out different ways to express my creative side. Since I was very little I have been surrounded with crafts in many different ways through my mother and grandmothers. Knitting, tatting, cross stitching and many others I have done. My heart is though with the paper crafts and Copic markers. 
I am 46 years old, been married for 22 years to a really great husband, but sadly no children.  I work as Accounts Manager for a Shipping Company.  Been crafting for most of my life, always like to make things.  Enjoy stamping and coloring in, lately found the digi stamps and enjoy these as well.  My other hobbies are Ten Pin Bowling which am in 2 leagues on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  Also been tracing my family tree over past many years.

Welcome everyone, so happy you are here.
Being able to express myself through art and crafting has always been a must for me, starting as soon as I could scribble with a crayon. I've dabbled in media of all types; water colors, acrylics, oils, counted cross stitch, stain glass and making miniature doll furniture and jewelry. But 5 years ago I met my “true love” with paper crafting, especially making cards. Now, for me, it has become an obsession!  My other passion in life is playing golf!

With all that news and the introductions being made, lets get down to crafting with
