Kern Kruta- FOF Co ordinator

I am Kren Kurts—wife, retired teacher, traveller, and crafter.  You may know me in blog land as kReN@afourthlife.  Kren (rhymes with “wren”) is my nickname. I am a “flamingo,” a native Floridian who flies north for a portion of the year.  I have been rubber stamping for years and try to get “inky” whenever I can.  I  love dies, beautiful images, and techniques for making my own backgrounds.   I am so happy to be a member of the Friends of Flourishes design team, and hope you will follow my new adventure with Flourishes here and on my blog,  afourthlife.blogspot.com.

Hello, my name is Toni Storie, I live with my husband and daughter in Western Washington. During the school year, I work as a teacher’s aide in a local school district. During the summer, I work at home to harvest the many fruits, vegetables, and herbs that our family grows. About 12 years ago I start paper crafting. I was introduced to the world of paper, ink and stamps in a most common way: a friend invited me to a home-based stamping party. Since then, I have started a blog and dedicated a room in my home to paper crafting. I have been a challenge hostess, a guest designer and a member of several design teams. I am greatly looking forward to my next adventure with Flourishes!

My name is Vickie Yeakley, AKA Vickie Y in the crafting world. I live in a small town in Indiana. I’m married and together my husband and I have 4 grown, out on their own children! Our children have blessed us with 9 grandchildren! I am retired from the public school sector having worked as a grant administrator for a cooperative of eleven school corporations. I’m a very eclectic crafter! I love paper crafting using all types of styles and techniques from whimsical to shabby chic to anything but a card to altered art and I enjoy using all types of coloring media. My crafting goal is to learn from other crafters and hopefully, provide inspiration to others with the cards and projects that I create. Paper crafting for me is a FUN, creative outlet and I enjoy spreading the FUN!

I am Shirley Qu. I am a wife, mother and grandmother. I have been stamping for about ten years. Once I started stamping there was no turning back, I was hooked. When I am not stamping, I enjoy spoiling my grand babies and my three furry pups. During the summer months, I can be found at the race track watching my husband race. He is as addicted to racing as I am to stamping.  I am super excited to be a part of the Flourishes team and I look forward to sharing my creations.

Give our new Team members a warm welcome.  Vickie already has done a tutorial and had it published.  This is going to be a great team to cork with in your efforts.

Until later, Ciao
