Reveal Week: Design Team Cycle 7


Welcome Back: Jennifer McCrae!

Words cannot express how happy we are to have this lady back on our team! After Jennifer battled with some serious health issues in the past year (and won!), she is now back on the Design Team, and we cannot wait to see what she creates! 

Learn more about her below!



I am a semi- stay at home mom and although we are currently in Central Texas, I will always be a California girl!  I am wife to Michael (we just celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary) and mother to Samantha (my 13yr old from my first marriage) who recently dubbed me as Craft-Mom.  I really caught the crafting bug when my husband and I were planning our wedding.  I made all of our centerpieces (dried flower arrangements), appliqu├ęd lace and pearls on my shoes and hand painted all of our thank you notes.  From 2001-2003 I was teaching decorative painting in the 3 local Michael's stores on the central coast of California, as well as teaching privately and participating in local craft shows.  During this time, I also learned a 15th century paper craft called Pergamano (think vellum, needles and tiny scissors).  When we relocated out of the area in 2005 I got involved in scrapbooking and have been happily playing in my piles of paper and goodies ever since!

I believe that all children should have a chance to 'craft', it gives them a creative outlet, something to do with their hands and it helps them see objects in a different way.  It never ceases to amaze me how a group of individuals can all be handed the same pieces of paper, glue and some embellishments and everyone will come up with some different and wonderful.  That's the beauty of crafting!
