Guest Designer
I am happy to introduce you to our Guest Designer this week - Davi Reid

Here's a little about Davi in her own words: I have very talented parents who were always creating as I grew up. I sewed, embroidered, drew, crocheted and painted from time I was a young child. I love creating and as an adult I have tried about every craft there is but mainly did sewing, woodworking, pottery and painting. I also do all types of cakes from birthday to wedding. Due to some life changes I hadn't done much traveling for a while. I live in a very rural area with no craft stores so not much exposure to the newest in crafts. I did have some rubber stamps and used them for some simple cards, stamping on fabric etc. A couple years ago I met a lady on line who told e about blogging and all the challenges. I was totally wowed by what I saw. I had never seen all the edge punches, Spellbinders and other products out there. With her help I started my blog in the fall of 2009 and was instantly hooked. Challenges are so much fun and a great way to get you to think outside the box! I do LOVE flowers and they are my most favorite embellie to make so you see lots of the on my cards. I have met so many wonderful ladies that have encouraged me along the way and I hope to be an encouragement to others. Its pretty amazing and totally fun when you think how blogging brings ladies from all walks of life across the world together!
