Can I just say, “Mind. Blown!” I'm Deidre (last name Payne) and I’m beyond thrilled to join CASology and this fantastic host of card artists. I currently live in Hampton, VA and work as a pharmacy manager. I create at all hours of the day and night, and my doggies (Scribble and Wifi) sit at my feet and make me hop around them to get to all my supplies. Teaching, sharing, collaborating, and meeting new crafters are passions of mine. I started with paper crafts in 2011, dabbling in scrapbooking. The whirlwind of the crafting world snatched me up and I just went with it. I love graphic designs and bright colors; the unexpected; and lots of techniques, but a CAS result. I hope to bring you some sparks of inspiration here at CASology and be inspired by you as well!
I am so excited to be joining the CASology Design Team and working alongside these extremely talented and inspiring card makers. I came to card making through scrapbooking and was immediately hooked when I discovered the online challenge world and blogging. Although I've played with a few different styles, CAS is what I love most. Long ago I worked in the corporate HR world but for the last 18 years I have stayed at home with our daughter (18) and son (17). We have been lucky enough to make moves with my husband's career that have taken us from Vancouver BC to Seattle to our current home in paradise, also known as San Diego County. In addition to paper crafting, my other passion is volunteering as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) through Voices for Children and advocating for foster children in the San Diego County juvenile dependency court system.
Hey there. I am super excited to be a part of the CASology design team. I am a mom, wife, farmer and an administrative assistant living in Iowa. Stamping has been a part of my life for twenty plus years. Creating gives me balance in my life. I just NEED to do it. Lol. One of the biggest inspirations for me is a card challenge. I love how it stretches us to areas we might not have tried before or new ways to look at our supplies. I am looking forward to seeing how the challenges stretch all of you.
I’m so honored to be joining the CASology Design Team. I have played along with the challenges for several years, so when Melissa asked me if I wanted to be a part of this amazing team, I was super excited. I’m very much a CAS girl and just love the clean look. I’ve been making cards since 2007 and I started my blog in 2012. I love to take part in different challenges and to be inspired by other card makers.
I live in a village in the middle of Sweden. I have a house that I share with my twin girls (14) and my son (19). I have worked as a teacher for 22 years now. I love my job because I need to be creative and open minded.
I'm really looking forward to being inspired by my team members and all of you who play along with us.
