Today I would like to welcome and introduce the first of our 3 new Design Team members.
I am very proud and happy to say hello to Cathi. Hereby a short presentation :o)
I am so excited to be designing for Riddersholm, thank you so much Connie for asking me to join you!!
Hi! My name is Cathi O'Neill, and I am an American who married an Irishman and I have been living in Ireland since 1997. I live in a beautiful village on the Shannon River with my DH of 19 years (wow, that makes me feel old!) and my two beautiful daughters, Aine (onya) 11 and Aisling (ashling) 10 who are the subject of many of my projects!!
I have always loved crafting since I was a little girl. My grandmother taught me to knit and crochet and I remember sewing Barbie doll clothes with her on her front porch! I am a knitter and quilter as well, but have recently in the last two years found cardmaking and scrapbooking, and an obsession was born!! I truly love creating and make vintage cards to sell here in our local village cafe as well as stacks of mixed media and shabby/vintage style layouts of my girls to keep and share with family! I also love to do tags, ATC and altered projects, barely a day goes by when I haven't done something crafty!!
I am currently on the design teams for C'est Magnfique Kit Club, La-La Land Crafts and Meg's Garden papers. I also design for challenge blogs Berry71Bleu and Sugar Creek Hollow, and have guest designed for challenge blogs Craft Hoarders Anonymous, Keeping the Best and Scrap it with a Song, C'est Magnifique Kit Club, Scraps of Elegance Kit Club, and manufacturers and stores: Something Tattered Stamps, May Arts Ribbon and Crop Stop online store. I truly enjoy the challenge and inspiration that scrapbooking and cardmaking bring me.
