Morning! Thank you to everyone who applied to join the team, it's been tough, but we have selected some new members. Joining our team are Andreja, Buffy, Faith and Shawna - let's hear from them:
NEW DESIGN TEAM MEMBERS
I am Andreja and I
come from a small and beautiful country Slovenia, Europe. I am married 14 years,
but unfortunately we do not have children. We both have some hobbys. So, creating is for me a great consolation. I am a creative person since I remember. I make the most
greeting cards and other paper creations, but I am doing the other things, too,
when I have time: I like mixed media tehnic, I make jewellery, I knitting
and sewing. I am
very happy to be part of this great "male" team and I
look forward to creating with you :-))
Hello my name is Buffy,
I’m married to my best friend Graham and we have 3 kids (two grown up & one
teenager). I work fulltime as an
Ultrasonic Analyst for a railway company (helping keep the tracks safe). But my true calling is
crafting, any kind of crafting. Paper crafting is my favourite, especially card
making. Although it has to be
said when I quit smoking 4yrs ago I taught myself to crochet and I’ve made
quite a few toys. (and then designed the
gift bags to put them in).
My Name is
Faith Anderson known as Faith A in blogland. I am a digital lover, which means
most of what I do starts in Photoshop and becomes hybrid. I have been using
Photoshop for years, but I still have so much to learn about it. I have been
married for 50 years to a wonderful man who puts up with my time on the computer,
we have a Son who has IT skills, I call upon sometimes. I am really excited to
become part of the DT of the Male Room as being the only girl with 4 brothers
and many other males in the family, I love making male cards.
My name is Shawna Standish from TheGrandStampede. I am a
forty year old mother of two, nicely nestled in Michigan, USA. I have been
creating cards for about three years. It all started when I was faced with the
possibility of becoming blind. It was not until then I started looking at color
and objects with new vigor, soaking up everything, knowing I might not see in
the future. Fortunately I am fine, and I live to see another day.
My crafting however, lead into an
unstoppable obsession. I wanted to share my art with others who had similar
interests. I ended up finding wonderful people from all around the world who
inspire me to be a better artist and who inspires so much of what I do.
Now it's time to tell you about our new challenge at The Male Room - TMR#37. You can make any type of papercraft project from ATCs to 3D projects, but they MUST be masculine in style. Our theme for the next couple of weeks is
A day to celebrate the very special men in our lives. Here's some inspiration from the team:
You've got time to play along as our deadline is midnight (BST) Tuesday 21st June (7.00pm EDT).
