All my life I have loved making something out of nothing and I have always loved color. As a little girl, I was determined to make fabric out of drier lint, clay pots out of the mud from the backyard and paper out of tree bark. I also loved coloring and painting, especially mixing colors. I was a paper maker waiting to happen.

 Hi! My name is Annie Bella. I am a stay at home wife and mother. I have been making art and crafting as long as I can remember. I am a Mixed Media / Recycled Crafts artist. I enjoy working in various mediums with various techniques. My favorite mediums include watercolor, acrylics, colored pencil, collage, clay, and book making. I am also an avid Blogger and Art Journaler. I would consider my style to be unique. I love to find new and unusual ways to bring beauty into the world. I am frugal and try to find new ways to use old things. I am also a member of the Creative Paperclay Design Team


 Monica Edward

 
My name is Monica Edwards and I am 42 yr old mother of two beautiful kids.  I have been married for over 20 years.  I started crafting when I was a teen and have not stopped yet.  For me, crafting is my stress reliever and I would like to consider myself a chameleon.  I change styles depending on my mood I can’t say I am a vintage girl because I also love fun and bright!! Being this way has made me grow in so many ways as a crafter.  I refer to myself as “scraps2treasure” because all scraps can be turned into someone’s treasure and nothing is trash to me but my claim to fame was my paper flowers I make this is what made me bloom in the craft world!! So to all the crafters out there keep on scrappin’

Hello, my name is Jana Mitchell and I'm a life long handcrafter.

Her favorite food is sushi, especially sea urchin. “I think any piece of raw seafood on a pillow of rice would delight me.”
