Choccy DT Coordinator

Hi everyone. I'm Choccy ( Oona ) or ( Chocolate Orange) . I live in Nottingham UK and am a proud mum to 3 boys.I am an even prouder Grandma ( noonie ) to one of the sweetest little boys, who is just 2.. Not forgetting my furbaby. An Irish Staffordshire Terrier who is mummies sweetheart. He often can be found helping me pick papers or helping spread glitter and glue with a very waggly tail.

 I found cardmaking in 2009 after trying to find a new hobby.
Having gone from working to having a disability and needed some stimulation. As I was having an onset of 'mushy' brain LOL. Being part of this fabulous community is one of the best things I have ever done. I have made some very good friends,that have made a big impact on my every day life....

I originally wanted to start scrapbooking but found card making on the way and havent looked back since. Although i do occasionally dabble with a new 'to me' craft...

I became DT co ordinator here at StitchyBear Digi Outlet in September 2011 and must say I am still loving it... I work with such a fantastic team of girls and have made so many friends during my time here.

My 'day' job is working in a stationers that sells craft items too... Yes !!! its very dangerous lol.. I get the stash goodies before the public. Often I can be found saying ' One for me, one for the shop' Whilst putting out the deliveries LOL.
I am lucky to be able to do all the craft demo days for the store I work at too :O)
If I am not there I can be found working at a Bridal store or even up to my elbows in glitter and card stock for my other love. My Stampin Up business.

There isn't many people that can say they 'love' their jobs.. But I am mega lucky and LOVE all of mine.

Josephine

Hello, I'm Josephine, and I'm a Scot who's been living in England for many years - just outside Greater London. I'm married, and have two sons (currently at university) and a daughter (still at school). I work with severely autistic children at a local special school.

I must admit, I didn't do any crafting as a child, but started knitting in my late teens, moving on to tapestry, then cross stitching and Hardanger embroidery. That got me into making cards, and after a while, I largely abandoned cloth and thread and moved over to paper. I've been blogging since the summer of 2009 after I discovered the online crafting community in blogland!

I joined the One Stitch at a Time DT in July 2010, and have been having fun working with some gorgeous digis, and combining digital and traditional techniques since then.

Mandy our sponsor coordinator

My name is Amanda Cruxton although I am known as Mandy or Made by Mandy in the crafty community. I am 41 years young and feel so lucky to be able to still love colouring in after all these years :) I have been with my husband for 24 years

I have been crafty ever since I could use children’s safety scissors! I have dabbled in quilting, dressmaking, crochet, knitting, embroidery, cross stitch and since November 2002 pretty much exclusively cardmaking after seeing a demo at the NEC. I have been blogging my cards since May of 2007. I love taking part in the challenges and the blogosphere is a constant source of inspiration.

My signature style is bright and colourful. I like to make unusual cards and adore using pretty papers. I’ve never been happy with the stamped images I produce so digi stamps have been an amazing way of improving my cardmaking skills. I love the flexibility of resizing and combining images. I can also experiment with different styles of images that I wouldn’t have purchased as a rubber stamp.

I love being on the team at OSAAT and feel very lucky to work alongside so many talented cardmakers and have the opportunity to work with such amazing images from the store.

Love Mandy xxx

Hazel

I have crafted all my life. My mother involved us in making things for the home, clippy mats, chair covers, tea tray cloths and embroidered cushion covers amongst lots of other things and I loved it. My crafting continued throughout my married life with knitting, sewing, wooden toy making, rag dolls, dolls clothes, you name it and I’ve probably made it.

About ten years ago a young friend came to stay and she was ‘bored’ so I showed her how to make some cards, I used to make them on odd occasions when I was young but hadn’t carried on with them. I had so much fun showing her how to do certain techniques that I continued making them and stocked up on the all important ‘stash’.

I retired over six years ago and my card making has now taken priority over other crafts, mainly because it’s more relaxing. I sit in my craft room with BBC Radio 2 on and happily make cards for any occasion.

I started my blog in February and really enjoy ‘meeting’ new people every day. I got the chance of being on the design team of One Stitch at a Time and I was really keen. I’ve already started with my first card ‘Lady Jane’and have my next three cards all ready so you can tell I’m keen.


We have two sons and two daughters in law and they all look forward to receiving hand crafted cards for birthdays and any other occasion. I come from the North East of England and I'm a true Geordie!

Nikki

My name is Nikki Byrne I am a mother of 2, Theo 6 and Jake 19 months. I am on an elongated maternity leave! and still haven't gone back to work.
I rely on my very supportive husband to support my very expensive hobby!. I have been crafting for years, but gave it up when my youngest was 6 months as my husband and I moved into a school as boarding parents.
I then restarted casually about 4 years ago and since my youngest was born I have been entering challenges as often as I can. I am now on 2 fabulous design teams. One stitch at a time and Delicious Doodles.
 I love to craft and make anything really, as it keeps me sane with only a 19month old in the house all day for company and a husband who is always working until gone 10 at night! although I love him to bits it does get a bit lonely in the evenings with no one to talk to!!

Jane  our stand in coordinater
 AKA Mimi in the crafting world

I grew up in a family of crafters right back to my great grandmother and seem to have inherited the craft gene. I remember, even as a very young child, always being given craft kits for Christmas and always being in trouble at boarding school for drawing and colouring during study time instead of doing my homework (well it was a lot more fun than learning French verbs you have got to admit).

I was born in Nigeria sometime during the last century and then moved to Zambia when I was 15. From there I moved with my folks to Kenya where I met my hubby and soul mate and we were married in 1980. We have two girls, one married and the other in the British Aramy, and a wonderful grandson. Hubby and I are now living in Saudi Arabia, on the east coast in a place called Abqaiq. Alan working full time and me part time as the New Hire Coordinator for residents on our camp. I say going to work is my social life :) Afternoons are spent in my craft room where I regain my sanity enabling me to cope with the busy outside world for small periods of time!!!!! I must admit, I would find life in general very difficult without crayons, paper and scissors close by, for me, there is something very special in being able to take a plain piece of card and watch it come to life during my play time :) :) :)

Cg


I'm a crafter living in Baltimore, Maryland, with my husband, a green iguana, and two unusually-large Miniature Schnauzers. I have a background in poetry and website & publication management, but these days I mostly make cards. I'm very lucky to have found the online creative community, and I just love visiting blogs by crafters around the world. Many thanks to StitchyBear/OSAAT for having me on the DT since February of 2012... it's still as much fun as ever!

CraftyGirl

Hi, I am CraftyGirl (not my given name). I am originally from New Jersey but now live in Virginia Beach, Virginia, with my loving husband for over 25 years. We have two basset hounds (Romeo & Juliet) and a black cat (Sir Die Hard). I think I was born crafting and come by it honestly since my Mom was the queen of crafts. She taught me most of what she knew and all of what I know about life and crafts. I love working with paper. My hobbies include: Card Making, origami, tea bag folding, beading, polymer clay, crocheting, ham radio, balloon animals and so much more.

I love being on the OSAAT team, the girls are wonderful and inspirational. Thank you Stitchy for giving me a chance and thank you to Choccy for being there whenever one of us needs her.

Maggie

Hi, everyone.  My name is Margaret “Maggie” Schoener.  I am originally from a small town of suburban Philadelphia, but I’ve been in Houston, Texas for over 40 years now.  I’m a single mom with 2 grown daughters and 4 awesome grandchildren, the oldest one who is now married and will graduate college in April 2015.  I’m also “mom” to 4 furbabies who live in my house, Paisley, Maggie Mae, Corey, and Casper who are the inspiration for my Stamp Haven and blog - Maggie’s Cat House.  I also have a few (like 9) outside kitties that I love just as much and take care of.   

My mom taught me the love of crafting with thread and needles as I was growing up, but then I started paper crafting way back about 1999 with scrapbooking but then one of my daughters introduced me to rubber stamping.  I love all things creative, but there’s only time for so much especially with a full time job and making cards took over my life. I love a challenge and have seen my style evolve over the years and have enjoyed learning so many different techniques.  My passion right now is Copic markers.  I love playing with them and have taken all the classes Copics offered, sometimes twice. 

I started my blog in 2011to showcase my cards. After entering many, many challenges, I realized a part of my dream which was to be on a Design Team.  I’ve tried out a few, but now I’m thrilled to be a part of One Stitch at a Time.  I have really been challenged sometimes with the different digital images we get to work with and always pushing myself outside of my comfort zone.

Sue P


"Hello there, my name is Sue (aka Sue Pxxx on my blog) I have been married to my totally understanding husband Graham for just over 45 years.   He supports my crafting habit and uses his DIY skills to make shelves, cupboards etc for me and also photographs my creations.   His only moan is about the weight of the stuff in my craft room, because he thinks it will eventually fall into the dining room below - he's probably right!

I have been crafting since I was about 8 years old, and have had many crafty hobbies but eventually started card making about 18 years ago.   I spend far too much money on my crafting and am sure I have enough stash to last me for about 250 years, give or take!! 


I started my blog in July 2012 (http://susiesplanet.blogspot.co.uk/)  and I love it, I never realised how many friends I could make - and meet in person!!   I have a very wobbly/warped sense of humour and am always telling stories, on my blog, about our cat Blossom and her life with her husband Donny - oh boy!   I love being a part of a DT because I can challenge myself each time I make a DT card - especially with all the amazing styles of images there are in the Stitchy Bear Store."

Jennie

I’ve been crafting most of my life in one way or another, I left school to be a milliner and absolutely adore being a Red Hat Society member. I came into card making about seven years after being shown the ropes by a lovely scrapbooker. I’ve been with the Stitchy Bears DT for a couple of years now and love it as we have so many gorgeous images to work with.  I’m an avid die collector and i just couldn’t work without a die cut somewhere on my cards.

Jeanette


Hello! My name is Jeanette and I love to color!

When I was a youngster, I couldn’t wait for a new school year to begin, because it always meant a new box of crayons – it was very exciting when my mom would let me pick out the big box of 64! WOW!!!

Now my coloring medium of choice is Copics (sadly, they are more expensive than crayons, even the big box of 64).

Yes, I love to color! I also love (though not listed in the order of significance) my husband, my three young adult children, my Lord, my friends and other family members……. and I love being on the OSAAT design team!

Deborah

Hi, I’m Deborah a.k.a stampndeb00 in the Crafty blog world. I was first introduced to stamps back in the day when a company called DOTS was around and yes, I still have them. (stamp hoarder) :D I also was a SU consultant for a few years. I have been an advent crafter for over 15 years enjoying being crafty and creative. I don’t think I have a certain style as I enjoy doing any type of crafting. My favorite thing to do is card making, I enjoy doing altered art, scrapbooking and working with various inks and paper. I also like making flower arrangements, wreaths and have done a few jewelry items. I like thinking outside the box and doing various types of projects using wood, beads, fabric, chipboard, corkboard, or other materials that inspire me.
On a personal note - I have been married for 27 years to the love of my life and my best friend. I have four beautiful daughters, one son in-law and my first granddaughter was born in May2014. :D We are a family of animal lovers we have 3 little fur babies Lucy the pug, Daisy the Basset, and Nitro the Siberian husky. I have a background in Medical Billing and hold a Degree in CJ and was able to stay at home with my girls off and on as they grew up.
I am so fortunate to be a part of One Stitch At A Time going on my second year, they are such a wonderful team. Thank You. :D
