“It all started with scented markers, stickers, end-roll newsprint paper, and a very special rainbow Hero Arts rubber stamp...and I was hooked on stamping even before I knew it was a 'thing.' Fast forward a few dozen years and I'm still in love with all things crafty and my love of it helped making the decision to start my own company, crafted., a natural fit! I love to get messy with my projects and have am always looking for an excuse to buy a new tool or learn a new technique. This year you will find me getting painty in my Creative Quotes Wall Gallery Workshop...and also am going to be having a booth on the sales floor so you can take home some DIY kits and/or fun plaques you just can't live without! I hope you can join us!”
"I am a Fun Stampers Journey coach. I joined the company when it launched in June 2014. I lead a team of amazing coaches across the country. I love to design and inspire others. I am currently on the Designer Showcase team, handpicked designers by Richard and his concept designer. I have a limit of 8-10 for my classes so that I can spend quality time with my students. I also take pride in making sure my students go home with some of the products used in class. Don't be frighten by my fees (it includes products to keep). I also take pride in my work, last year we received amazing reviews on our classes. I am looking forward to returning with my team, this year there will be 4 of us, along with some helpers. Hope to see you in one of our classes. Be sure to stop by our booth as we will have make and takes all weekend."
“I have been a Kiwi Lane Instructor for just over a year and have enjoyed sharing my love of their Designer Templates with others throughout Wisconsin and Illinois. I have been scrapbooking for many years and found that Kiwi Lane helped me be more creative with papers. Teaching others is my passion, and as an educator of 15 years, that is one of my favorite parts of being an instructor. I'm looking forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new people at OOAK. So come join me as we play to create with Kiwi Lane!”
