Hi my name is Avril, I live up in Bonnie Scotland, born in Dundee, but have lived in Edinburgh for the last 14 years.  I am married to Brian, (who is my Rock and Best Friend)  and between us we have 6 children and 11 grandchildren.   I was always making things,  as a child, even made my own Eyeshadow with Talc and Blue Bubblebath, that went down a treat, LOL. I have also Crocheted, Knitted, Embroidered and done Tapestry.  I had a very big low, with both my health and mood, when I lost my Dad to Cancer, in 2005, was flicking through the channels one Tuesday (which was a day Dad and I spent together, every week) and found some Crafting.  I started off making a card for our oldest grandson Tommy, when he went to school, he has lived with us now for nearly 10 years and is now in 4th year at high school.  I have no idea where that time has gone.  I found blogland, then facebook, and have been lucky enough to be on some fabulous Design Teams, and made some life long friends, some I have met and some I have yet to meet.  Other than crafting, I enjoy reading (a lot), spending oodles of time with my children and ever growing amount of grandchildren.  I have a wee minature poodle Jet, who is my constant companion, and is usually covered in glitter, poor wee guy!.  I am absolutely thrilled to be part of this Design Team, and look forward to getting to know, those of you, that I have not met before.

Thank you Avril.




Hi, my name is Judy McKay and I live in beautiful Vernon, British Columbia Canada with my husband . We have 3 sons and 2 beautiful grandsons. I retired from the Provincial Government as a manger about 6 years ago .  I spent most of my working career working in the legal profession and managing a large group of employees.  I made cards off and on during the last few years before retirement but never had time to pursue my interest in different forms of arts and crafts. 

 Retirement has allowed me to have time to search for my creative side.  I love mixed media, home decor,assemblages,  altering projects , all types of paper crafts  and encaustic wax.  I love to try new things.  
I am so happy to join this very creative group and looking forward to sharing and learning from you all.

Janet Hines
Hi, I'm Janet and I live in the West Midlands England. I'm married to Ted a long suffering crafters husband, He's so patient taking me to alsorts of craft shops and shows in the past and been happy to wait for me. I've been crafting since I was a little girl, knitting toys and clothes for my dolls. Over the years I have tried most crafts but got into to papercrafts about 10 years ago.
Having to work means I don't have as much time to craft as I would like, but being picked to join this very talented design team I'm looking forward to endulging myself in playing with lots of different media and just getting messy.

Sheryl Hare
Hi my name is Sheryl and I live with my husband Ian in Staffordshire, England with our two beautiful Birman cats, Rosie and TC. I am step mum to three lovely girls and gran to Ryan and gorgeous Immogen Rose. I have crafted for my whole life, even as a child I was always colouring, cutting and sticking- I guess I just never grew up.
I worked for almost forty years as a teacher which was very rewarding but very demanding time wise. I began crafting six years ago after watching a Craft Channel on TV when I was sick in bed and becamme addicted. Now I have retired I have more time to indulge my passion and am enjoying trying the all the new techniques I didn't have time for before.
I am delighted to be part of this very talented team and am really looking forward to learning from all my creative teamies.
